What can we do to help our family, our church, our neighbors, the strangers we meet? Ask them straight out: How can we help you?
Loving the world
If we love the world, and call our self “Christian”, then we are “serving two masters” (Matthew 6:24). Do you know what Jesus said about that?
Will you be turned away by Jesus?
I am so very, very concerned for you. Have you ever considered the possibility that YOU yourself will be turned-away by Jesus when you meet Him? Will Jesus say to you, “One thing you lack”, or, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me…’?
Wrapped in unselfish love
From the richness of my soul I am sufficient enough to be loving in all situations. But if I am not well in my soul, then, well, trouble’s a’ comin’.
Racism is an evil to personally resist
Obvious to all except the racist, is the truth that racism is evil. Too many are willing to tolerate evil these days. Racism is chock full of it….
What is “sound doctrine” and what is “a different doctrine”?
Believe in the Name of Jesus – and you will be saved. “A whole lot of “accepting” is going on there in that moment in time… “when you (if you did), or I, said, “I accept Christ as my Lord and Savior”. Are you aware of what-all it actually requires to truly “accept Christ”? Who do you believe?
How to treat people
I must admit – I battle piccadilly attitudes and unguarded moments, most every day. Get that yourself? I tend to think of “love” as my choice. But Christian agape love is a constant – with all peoples. I must guard my soul from fickle piccadillies (where I bend and accept tiny “small sins).
Making my face smile
Smile. It affects others.
Oh to be like the Tewksbury Institute floor maid
One of the better stories I have read in a long time – touring Tewksbury Institute.
The Bible is the standard for Christian thought and practice. Not me. Not you.
I am so saddened by the willy-nilly application of Bible truths nowadays. People make it say whatever they want to – so it will thereby backup their own wishful thinking. The Bible is the standard for Christian thought, seeing as how we believe God inspired Godly men to write as He guided them.
Every believer’s new life in Christ [Part One]
Because God is extreme to the nth degree – God requires an extreme type of relationship from us. Once we get born again, we will continue growing deeply, naturally, into further maturity in Christ. The wonder of passing from being “God-damned” to being “marvelously saved by Jesus”. Oh how marvelous this journey!
I stomped the mud puddle
It was not so nasty a word
Bought with a price—the blood of Jesus
I am redeemed, but not with silver… I am bought, but not with gold… Bought with a price—the blood of Jesus.
What is proper among saints
What is “the right thing to do” – for a Christian? Ephesians 5:1-3 tells us: “become imitators of God”
We must seek after God
Peace within our own boundaries is not guaranteed. It is so important in these days that we all draw near to God, and pray. We must seek after God, while He yet can be found. Deuteronomy 4:29 “…seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your […]
How to Live On Christ – by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Many Christians are satisfied if they are doing something —others wish to feel sure that they are doing much; but few admit the obligation, or make serious efforts, to do all they can.
Good talk is fun! Put simply: It involves your mouth voicing words with your brain full on, your heart tuned to “nice“, and another talker involved – some listening ear understanding you, involved mutually in the conversation. If there is no understanding – then there is no communication. If it’s not mutual, then there is […]
One Human Race
We are actually all together one race. Is anyone reading the Bible – and actually trying to follow Jesus – with love for others?
The Christian’s mission of love every day
Sharing the blessed hope we have in Christ – THAT is our mission, every day, all day, anywhere, however we can, in love.
Act in love towards all peoples
Based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7; Matthew 25:41-46; Hebrews 13:2; 3 John 1:5. Acts of love I can do… in Christ: I will be friendly, cordial, and gracious to all people, in all circumstances, even if I am miffed, or feel wronged. I will look-out for anyone being overlooked or ignored, and be gracious and loving […]
Heaven will be awe-full and law-less
Heaven will be …filled-up full with unending awe of the One-and-Only, the wonderfully awesome God, and …filled-up full with overflowing love that voids any need for laws. Love will rule inside our insides. The peace of God, in Heaven, will surpass our present ability to understand that realm.
Love forgives others
Love forgives. Plain and simple. Nothing less. Is your love acting, or “failing”? 1 Peter 4:8 Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins [it overlooks unkindness and unselfishly seeks the best for others]. Got to have it: “have fervent and unfailing love”. Have it. Have […]
Our put down, slap down ways
Take today’s challenge: Try “loving” again. “Do not judge and criticize and condemn [others unfairly with an attitude of self-righteous superiority as though assuming the office of a judge], so that you will not be judged [unfairly].” – Matthew 7:1 The world around us is chuck-full of fault-finding. You might even find it inside your […]
Quick and Harsh
We all do it. It is so easy. We jump to it! Each of us – we suddenly are harsh and unloving. We jump to judgment, condemning others around us. Our harsh words and attitudes come out of such lovely, innocent faces. We often draw conclusions without all the facts – and then shame and […]
Statement of Faith
The statement of faith to which we subscribe: We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God. We believe the Triune Godhead exists in One Eternal, Transcendent, Omnipotent, personal God, manifested in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The substitutionary and redemptive sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ […]
Is Jesus Savior no more?
It appears that, for the majority in the USA, Jesus is Savior no more. Even though the Supreme Court ruled against taking down the cross, citizens continue to remove Christ from their view.
Extreme to the nth degree
Our God reveals Himself in the Bible to be extreme to the nth degree. He is many many things, but lets just look at His love and His holiness. It is only Jesus that was the perfect sacrifice to take our place of condemnation. He is calling you to accept Him.
There is a place
When this life is over and we’ve lived it all for self, we’ll have nothing in eternity but self and self – that’s all.
“…I have come in response to your words.” – Angel Gabriel; Daniel 10:12 To us puny humans, everything God is in Himself, and everything God does in action — is extreme. His power is extreme. His divine nature is extreme. His knowledge is extreme. His mercy is extreme. His compassion is extreme. All that He […]
Oh the unfathomable love of our wonderful mysterious God. Think about it. His love is so endless, amazingly deep and wide. Try understanding this love. God’s love for us is never failing, beyond the capabilities of our understanding. God foreknew us as sinful, yet loved us still. God hates sin, but even though He foreknew […]
