we always need god Because life comes at us so quickly, and because we get so busy moving about doing so much, we can easily forget or fail to realize how important God really is to us. I don’t just mean how important He is in our worship services or in our routine prayers. I’m talking about a basic recognition that we cannot function in any capacity at all but for the grace of God. We could not move, eat,…

LOVE FINDS A WAY All Christians want to bring the lost to Christ. But each of us has some handicap which causes us to feel limited in our ability to do so. It may be a weakness of knowledge or difficulty in expressing ourselves. Perhaps it is a personality deficiency or even a lack of transportation.

THE PRECIOUS WORD OF GOD Words often bring relief or rejoicing. A doctor’s words bring the wonderful news that the patient is going to be alright in spite of a seemingly life-threatening problem.

WHAT HAVE I GIVEN TO GOD? When I stop and think of all that my parents have done for me throughout the years, I cannot help but ask myself, “What I have done for them in return?”.

OBSCURITY Mankind possesses a strong desire for community, the desire to belong. We also desire to be recognized and to be appreciated for our contribution to society. We wish for life to have meaning and purpose. Some fear that they will not be known or understood in the present. Others fear that they will be forgotten after they have passed. In either case the thought of fading to obscurity is unsettling. These fears are not unfounded. It is entirely possible…

WE ARE WHO WE CHOOSE TO BE “Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to any one as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness” (Romans 6:16). When God created man, he placed within him the nature of a free moral agency. Man could make decisions and choose his own path. Adam and Eve chose to eat the forbidden fruit…

BURNING DAYLIGHT The winter solstice is rapidly approaching. The solstice, December 21, is the day with the fewest hours of daylight in the northern hemisphere. Daylight is precious. The hours of darkness make commuting more difficult and dangerous. The long evening hours are more conducive to leisure than productivity. The phrase “burning daylight” means to waste time. Another way to describe it is procrastination. Procrastination did not originate with me, but I have perhaps perfected it. Procrastination is usually intentional.…

PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER It is a fact that Christians are to pray for one another (1 Thessalonians 1:2; 5:25). This is a blessing that draws us closer together as we approach the throne of God. It is not merely something that we might do, but something that we must do. Christians praying for one another is found throughout the New Testament. Peter in Prison When Peter was thrown into prison, “constant prayer was offered to God for him by…
