You don’t have to agree with everything we say, but hopefully we can give you food for thought that will cause you to search the Scriptures. We just try to keep it as simple … Continue reading John the Baptist
“The LORD had said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.’”
Genesis 12:1 (NIV)
If there is anyone in this world who enjoys being at home, it’s me … but my son is a close second. (If you look up “homebody” in the dictionary, you might even see our pictures.)
So when it came time for him to decide on a college, my husband and I were very surprised he chose a school away from home.
Of course, I had encouraged him to explore all options. Isn’t that what a good mama is supposed to do? But I didn’t actually think he would select one of those out-of-town schools.
Once he announced his decision, butterflies churned in my stomach. Everything in me wanted to change my son’s mind, especially with the uncertainty of…

In a post that’s sure to get me into trouble with someone, I’d like to explore morality and how it is different for the Christian and the atheist.
Of course, there are others religions out there, but I can’t contrast and compare them all in one little blog post. Since I am a Christian, it is easier for me to compare Christianity with atheism. But if you do have a faith, I suspect you will find yourself agreeing with my comparison, substituting your faith for Christianity.
What I am not saying
I am not saying that a Christian is inherently more moral than an atheist. Nor am I saying that an atheist cannot be moral.
What I am saying
My premise is this: when a Christian acts in a moral manner, he acts in accordance with his stated beliefs. When an atheist acts in a moral manner, he is (in…

by Lysa Terkeurst “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 (ESV) Looking to our feelings to steady our souls instead of Truth is dangerous ground. I saw a vivid depiction of this several years ago when we remodeled our house. I invited a … Continue reading When Peace Feels Impossible
(Matthew 2:1-8). Herod pretended he wanted to worship Jesus Christ, but he was fearful of this One who was called the King of the Jews. He didn’t want any competition for his throne. When Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male … Continue reading The people who missed Christmas – just like king Herod.
Bible Reading: 2 Corinthians 4:1-5 “Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up. We reject all shameful deeds and underhanded methods.

“Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind!” - Ps 66:5 NIV To understand the greatness of God, Christian believers need to be aware of what other religions were about in Biblical times. Most of them created gods with mythical stories about their doings. They used images carved from wood so that … Continue reading The GOD Who Does Things
DR. TONY EVANS “The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.” Luke 2:20 (NASB) Appraisers determine the value of property. If I wanted to sell my home, I’d get it appraised to determine its real value. Jewelry is also appraised to … Continue reading Too Busy to Worship?
Do you know the meaning behind God’s strange and mysterious name, I AM? God’s name, I AM, is like an incomplete sentence – I AM what? Even though His name might be incomplete to us, we must never doubt nor question His name. We must have faith, and the sufficient grace of His name will fill the emptiness in our lives.
The sufficient grace of I AM is received by faith. God, in taking the name I AM, is donating a blank check. Faith has but to fill whatever we want – just add the ciphers.
God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the bread of life.” God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the light of the world.” God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the gate for the sheep.” God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the way, and the truth, and the life.” God said, “I AM,”…
