  • The Problem of Pain

    In the wrap-up to His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus told a story about two men who built two homes. They may have been at the same time and close to together. They might have even had the same floor plan.
  • They Had Been with Jesus

    Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:13)
  • Keeping Pace

    It is not all that significant if you have held first place in a race for nine out of 10 laps. What matters is the 10th lap. Whoever crosses the finish line first is the winner.
  • God's Gift to Us (Part 2)

    We celebrate Christmas in order to rejoice over God's most precious gift to us. The birth of Jesus Christ is a gift from God that came in simple wrapping, as well as a gift we don't deserve. But the gift of Christ also explains His purpose for humankind.

    God's Gift to Us (Part I)

    When you're a child, Christmas is all about receiving gifts. In December, your head is swimming with nothing but images of your favorite toys.
  • Secrets to Marital Bliss

    When asked on his fiftieth wedding anniversary for his secret to marital bliss and longevity, Henry Ford replied, "Just the same as in the automobile business. Stick to one model."
  • How to Strengthen Your Marriage

    Sometimes we hear the comment, "They have a marriage made in heaven." The implication of a statement like that is that some marriages just work and others don't.
  • Every Fiber of Your Being

    I find it interesting that Jesus said, " 'And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength' " (Mark 12:30).
  • Fallen From the Lord

    Christians typically think of falling away from the Lord as engaging in gross sin. If somebody sins terribly, we say they have fallen.
  • At the Feet of Jesus

    Walden sculpted the body of Christ in such a way that you can't see His face from a standing position. Next to the statute, however, is a sign that reads, "If you want to see the face of Jesus, you must sit at His feet."
  • Ready of Not!

    We have all played the childhood game, Hide-and-Seek, where one person closes his or her eyes while the others hide. My favorite part of the game comes after you count to 20 and get to yell, "Ready or not, here I come!"
  • Time Will Tell

    Remember the story of Gideon in the Old Testament Book of Judges? Gideon had a fairly large army of 32,000 men. But he had a much larger adversary in the Midianites, who numbered in the thousands and thousands.
  • Justified

    "Justification" is an often-used word in the Christian vocabulary that carries great meaning. It is a word that declares the rightness of something—not symbolically or potentially, but actually.
  • The Eigth Commandment

    Stealing has become such a widespread problem in our culture today that it is now commonplace. By that I mean, we are so accustomed to people stealing that we wouldn't even think of leaving our cars or homes unlocked.
  • Therefore, Love Your Neighbour

    When Jesus said, "Love your neighbor as yourself," He was not saying that before you can love others, you must first love yourself. That is the common interpretation we often hear, but that is not correct. Jesus is not teaching self-love.
  • Destined with Greatness

    He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us." —2 Corinthians 1:4

    To Know His Will

    I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. —Romans 12:1-2
  • True Disciples

    "These who have turned the world upside down have come here too." —Acts 17:6

    The Pursuit of Pleasure

    You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. —Psalm 16:11
