Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

Not Knowing God

Why don’t you know what you need to know about God? Why do you know more about dancing cats, disastrous stunt crashes, or divorcing celebrities than you know about the God of the universe? Why do you think that simply knowing there is a God is all you need to know about God? Did you…

Freedom Fundamentals

One of the messiest times in the Bible was when “Every man did that which was right in his own sight” and individual freedom turned into collective chaos. In our present PC Society where “someone” (no one seems to know who) constantly changes the definition of what is right or wrong it is important to…

Christmas Means

Christmas means Joy: The Psalmist proclaimed In His Presence is Fullness of Joy” and he longed for that presence. Christmas means God became flesh and dwelled among men and we beheld His Glory as God changed from a faraway deity into a present with us Savior! No wonder we celebrate with such Joy. Christmas means…

A Baby Cried

For four hundred years God remained silent. Disease, war, and despair devastated the earth. World changing empires rose and fell. Israel again slipped into the bondage oppression of a foreign power and the people of God once again cried for God to show Himself and bring relief. But days passed into years as no new…

Don’t Blame Christmas

I think most people will admit that Christmas has gotten out of control. It has evolved from a time of worshipping a babe in Bethlehem into a time when we feed our greeds, are overwhelmed with stressful needs, and overdo our feeds. It has backpedaled so far into October until many people have had about…

Gas Man Gas

I pulled up at a gas station recently and noticed that a gas delivery truck was getting gas at the pump beside me. The gas man was getting gas! Gas trucks are something we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about. We assume gas just gets to the pumps so we can purchase and use…

Driveway Disappointment

Six year old Timmy looked at his parents one day and said, “I know exactly what I want for Christmas this year. A New Car!” The parents said, “Fine” and added “new car” to Timmy’s Christmas list. Christmas day arrived and Timmy rushed past the presents piled under the tree and into the yard where…

Prayer Barriers

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:24) Can this verse really be in scripture? Is it possible that God really WANTS to answer our prayers? The answer, of course, is that, like any loving Father, God wants…

Gratitude

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6). The cute little girl ran up to her granddad with open arms. The granddad leaned down and welcomed his grandchild into his arms for a great big “bear hug”. Nestled in…

Christian Citizens

The best contribution anyone can make to meet the needs of this world is to live a Christian life, build a Christian home, and radiate the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. [Adapted from a quote by John Stott in “Basic Christianity”] How succinctly he describes the three main duties of a Christian who…
