Living for, with Christ in your life changes your looks

I am not sure when it was started, nor do I remember the circumstances for starting it, but my Uncle Harvey and I, years ago, started referring to one another as Number One and Number Two.Uncle Harvey was Number One and I was Number Two. It was just a little humorous ditty between the two of us that provided the basis for laughter within our families over the years.Recently on Sunday night about 10 p.m., I received a call from Aunt Thelma. When I saw the name of the call...

Relationship with God integral for successful marriage

God has blessed us with the ability to live a successful marriage relationship.

A Hunger for More

Faith is a tricky thing. And much of what is tricky about it isn’t merely in whether or not we have it, but also in whether or not we understand what it is about it that is actually pleasing to God.If by “faith” we simply mean religious activity or affiliation with a religious body (e.g., “I go to such-and-such church”) then we’ve totally missed what God means by faith. Is it really important to get this right? Is it truly necessary for us to und...

Is Jesus Christ coming or not?

Can you tell me whether or not there is going to be a second coming of Jesus Christ?This question is one that either stirs ridicule of rejection by secular humanists, generates heated theological debate among the intellectuals, or brings a sense of comfort within the church ranks of the evangelicals, which was Apostles Paul’s particular point.

A Hunger for More …

There is a weight to sin that the eye cannot see and the mind cannot imagine. It is so burdensome that it cannot be upheld by even the strength of mountains. It brings with it a veil of murky darkness that chokes the soul, murders joy, and smothers hope.Like spiritual cement shoes, this weight, encumbering all of human life on planet earth, drags its victims into grave waters of eternal separation from the presence of Holy God.And although sin was not native to Him but w...

Sometimes we all need a little ‘shaking’

Have you ever felt the tremors of an earthquake? That type of shaking can get your attention in a hurry.There are many testimonies of people in church services where they have seen the place caught on fire to the point of the fire department showing up to put the fire out, only to discover that the fire was that fire of the Holy Spirit – not a physical fire.There have also been instances where the place of a prayer meeting has become so full of the presence of God ...

Are you a threat to the kingdom of darkness?

Are you a threat to the kingdom of darkness?If satan and his demons had a board meeting and your name came before the board, what would they say? Would they say that you are one of their biggest threats to their kingdom, and as a result they must keep many demons harassing and opposing you?Or would they say, “Gentlemen, this person poses no threat to our kingdom and our plans. Leave him alone. He needs no help from us.”The truth is, there are milli...

God can give attitude, too

While there are many things about which to like God, one point has to be is that He can give attitude, too. Holy God is no pushover.After all, people give God attitude all the time. People scoff at the notion that God is real. Attitude comes in the form of personal arrogance toward God. People think of themselves as God. Attitude is manifested in expecting that God will most certainly have to give them a second chance for redemption after passing out into eternity.

A Hunger For More

A great deal of tragedy has struck in the past week in our country’s Midwest.Literally dropping out of the sky, destruction and terror descended unexpectedly into the lives of people who were simply going about their daily activities and minding their own business. Like so many, they had no idea beforehand the ordeal that would sweep away routines, livelihoods, homes, and in some cases lives of loved ones.

Reflections of our ‘selves’ are often distorted

Roger looked at himself in one of the gym mirrors hanging on the wall. He thought to himself, “Not bad.”He was a regular at the local gym where he worked out religiously from 5-7 a.m. seven days a week. The only problem was that regardless of his workout regimen, he was still soft and girthy in the stomach, and a little flabby in the triceps. To himself, however, he thought he looked pretty good.

Children are a product of our words

I’m having a difficult time staying away from the topic of words. So let us consider yet another area where words are vital to our everyday life and how our words give life to different situations.Again, Proverbs 18:22 says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”Children are a product of words. It is important for parents to realize that the home atmosphere is a product of words.Hav...
