Lessons to Live By

Of all of God’s creations, He chose to create us in His image (Genesis 1:27).  Wonderfully and perfectly made (Psalm 139:14) in the image of God, yet we don’t serve Him or praise Him like many of His other creations.  The sunrise speaks of His amazing watchcare over us, as we made it through the…

Tuned for His Use

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25:23). How would you like to hear that from Jesus? How would you like to hear that He is…

Trick or Treat

Tonight night is Halloween and millions of kids will be heading out, asking their neighbors, “trick or treat?” These days, everyone always gives out a treat and never waits for a trick.

” But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: He is their strength in the time of trouble .” Psalm 37:39 For many people, the day that they accept Christ is a day that is more important than their birthday, more memorable than an anniversary. It is a day that marks the most important decision…

Resolve to Resolutions

It’s that time of year – Christmas is once again a year away, and it’s time for us to celebrate the new year!  I know that many people think it makes no sense to make new year’s resolutions, but I always enjoy making them.  Although probably the vast majority of the resolutions we create every…

Prepared for God’s Use

So often in our busy world, we awaken with the tasks of the day on our minds, hop out of our beds, and run off into our demanding worlds, forgetting to read God’s Word. Why is this so easy to do? It’s easy because God is a gentleman and doesn’t demand it of us with…
