by Adam Hellyer There’s no such thing as a dead atheist. Atheist or agnostic, believer or unbeliever, all are appointed to die once and then appear before the judgment seat of Christ. Under those circumstance, every knee will bow, everyone will believe. But, while atheism is non-existent in eternity, many still hold to it in this life. Ideas of atheism vary between different cultures and languages, but generally atheism is seen as the belief that there is no … Continue reading Understanding Atheism
I was reading the story of Jonah today and it just made me think, “What if I don’t want what God wants for me?”

"Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof."—Psalm 65:10. HOUGH OTHER seasons excel in fulness, spring must always bear the palm for freshness and beauty. We thank God when the harvest hours draw near, and the golden grain invites the sickle, … Continue reading Spring in the Heart
Read the Scripture: Romans 6:1-2 Let me ask you a question: Now that you are a Christian -- now that you understand that the grace of God forgives your sins, past, present, and future, that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on your behalf settles the debt for sin, no matter when sins occur -- do … Continue reading Can we Go on Sinning?
We get told to recycle just about everything but I am not entirely convinced.
Carotid. It says something, it tells of the carotid arteries or carotuses. The ones running up the neck to the head.
A friend was diagnosed with it recently, not the first in my circles, either. It came as a shock as this person is on #LCHF diet and never looked better. In fact, she is approaching sixty but had shed much excess weight, has a healthy skin glow and a vibrancy my wife and I had never seen in the eleven years we knew her.
Of course, what she has been diagnosed with, has nothing to do with her healthy #LCHF diet at all. It really is collateral damage resulting from lifestyles of yesterdecades.
The build-up op fatty deposits in the neck arteries didn’t happen overnight and occurred slowly over six decades. When we are younger…

from JO’s sermon tonight:
God wants to help you, not just in the big things; God wants to help you cooking dinner, driving in the traffic. He wants to help you with your school work, help you be more productive at the office. but God will only be involved in as much of your life as you allow Him to. alot of people have God in a Sunday morning box; that’s when they come to church, pray, think about God. during the week, they don’t really include God in their life. they love God, reverence Him, but they think, “there’s nothing spiritual about going to the grocery store, cooking dinner, meeting with a client.” because they keep God in this box, they’re missing the blessings and favor that God wants to give them.
Proverbs 3:6 (TLB)
In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts…

There are really two types of people when it comes to airplanes: there are the talkers, and then those who would rather get a root canal than socialize with the person seated next to them.
Admittedly, I am the latter. Earbuds in, sunglasses on – I am a fortress. I am simultaneously praying for a) the plane not to go down, and b) my seat mate to not try to drum up small talk. Priorities, right?
But I love flying, I really do. Riding in an airplane is always a bit of an adventure. You never know who you’ll be sitting by, and for a couple hours, you’re completely out of control, and unplugged.
I was flying back to Ohio today from New York. And there are always a lot of emotions, seeing the intimidating city skyline of Manhattan slowly morph into the lush and fertile Ohio River valley…

Christian history is packed full of people who decided to make the most of their time in this world: John Calvin was 26 years old when he wrote the Institutes of the Christian Religion. David Brainerd was 29 years old when he died … Continue reading Making the Most of Your Life
by Cecelia Lester The thought recently came to me that we are all needy people. Some of us are not aware of the needs we have. Our primary need is that of salvation. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 … Continue reading Needy People
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20 (NIV) We have two cats at our house: twin gray tabbies named Sam and Bo, adopted from an animal shelter. … Continue reading The Prodigal Cat
