Joy to The World!

“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people,” Luke 2:10 KJV  These words were spoken on the very first Christmas. The message the angel brought was a joyful one. This verse precludes, “For unto you is born this dayContinue reading “Joy to The World!”

GIVE ME THAT OLD TIME RELIGION!

I live in the Atlanta area, kind of smack in the middle of the “Bible belt.” This long standing nickname would lead most to believe that Christianity is the most prevalent religion in these parts. It’s not. The most prevalent religion around here is football. I rarely see Christians rally together or cheer on one anotherContinue reading “GIVE ME THAT OLD TIME RELIGION!”

Are You My Brother?

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also. 1 John 4:20-21 NKJV  WhenContinue reading “Are You My Brother?”

New Year, New You?

With only a few days into the New Year many “resolutions” have been made. And broken. The stamina required for significant change looms far too large for many. Athletes conquer their challenges with the help of a coach. Students achieve academic goals with help from parents and teachers. But what about the rest of us?Continue reading “New Year, New You?”

Keep the Faith!

“When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!” And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes,Continue reading “Keep the Faith!”

Trash Day!

In my household of mostly men, the responsibility lies on them to take out the trash. Unfortunately, I am the only one with a nose sensitive enough to detect whatever is rotting before anyone else does. I am very aware that if the trash is not taken out, the entire house will stink very soon.Continue reading “Trash Day!”

Grace Under Fire

“And God [is] able to make all grace abound to you, that you always having all sufficiency in all [things], may have an abundance for every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV Often when we seek God or commit to study His Word, we may find our pursuit seems to open us up to chaos. As we make spiritualContinue reading “Grace Under Fire”

Closed for Renovations

 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”  1 Corinthians 3:16 The passage of time, storms, and decay will take a toll on nearly every structure man can build.  Even as temples of God, we are no different. Fortunately a carpenter’s “son,” canContinue reading “Closed for Renovations”

Peace and Joy!

 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” John 14:27 NKJV Jesus came not just as our Savior, but that we may have peace now on this earth. It is amazing howContinue reading “Peace and Joy!”

Soar!

Unlike this butterfly struggling against the breeze, I spotted a hawk soaring high on those same winds. Hawks trust the breezes to lift them higher. No GPS or google maps, they just stretch their wings and go! The higher we want to go, the more we must trust God to take us there. Small things weContinue reading “Soar!”
