More than Volunteers - Quiet Time Thoughts

My son and I went downtown to a shelter last month with a bin of winter coats, gloves and hats to pass out. We expected to find a regular group of men and a couple women lingering outside the shelter, where we regularly hand out bars of soap, coats and gloves. This Saturday, there was only one man out in the cold - a regular from the shelter named Richy. I asked him "Where is everybody today?"

Purim - The Upside Down Holiday from the Book of Esther

If you were not aware – this Sunday commemorates a special day on the Jewish Calendar known as Purim! In a world of blizzards, earthquakes, and Tsunami’ s, it’ s always good to reflect on God's promises and protection of his people. This year, March 20-21, 2011, Jews around the world will celebrate two days of joyful activities and reminders of God's faithfulness in preserving their people. For several reasons all disciples, Jewish and Gentile, would do well to recognize and celebrate this popular Jewish holiday.

The King and I

What is the Kingdom of God? Is it here now, or is it yet to come? If yet to come, where is it going to be? There are many debates about these questions today, just as there were in the times of Jesus.

Satan's Subtle Voice is the Blatant Assault

Sometimes when we resist an obvious temptation, the residual seed of danger can still be lodged in our mind and heart...

"When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time." Luke 4 :13

The Cross: Worship at the Feet of Jesus

As the curtain was torn open between God's presence and mankind's veiled faces, the first person to confess the glory of Christ was one of his executioners...

"Surely this man was the son of God"

Mark 15:39

Discovering the Bible For Yourself- Week 4

Week Four     II Timothy
 
A Man of God 

Remember how David was described as a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22)? Studying the Psalms definitely helps us have that same goal. There is a similar thought seen in Paul’s life, which he is passing on to Timothy.

Discovering the Bible For Yourself- Week 3

Week Three   I Timothy
 
No One Else Like Him

Paul’s relationships were always outstanding. His relationship with Timothy is one that we know most about because of these two letters.

Getting to Know Your Heart

I believe it is truly important to get to know your heart - God has placed it within you, so we know it is a gift from him. But it is also able to be tempted and swayed by humanistic desires.

Discovering the Bible For Yourself- Week 2

Week Two II Thessalonians

A Persevering Church

Paul wrote in his first letter to the Thessalonians about the second coming of Jesus. His goal was to encourage them and have them encourage others with those words. However, it seems that some of the Christians misunderstood and thought that he meant that Jesus was surely coming any minute. Some of them quit work. After all, if Jesus is coming next week, why go to work this week?

Discovering the Bible For Yourself- Week 1

It’s amazing, when you think about it, what God has done to prepare us to be what He wants us to be in this life and to allow us to experience what He has in store for us in the next one.

We all know that we can never boast about being people that are always perfectly in tune with God’s heart. But the Lord does want us to know that we can live a life here on earth that is worthy of everything He has invested in us. He believes in us more than we believe in ourselves.
