Where is God in your life? Part 2

When it comes to our salvation, we need to remember to put God first. There are some hard things to understand in the Bible, but how to be saved is not one of them.

God's joy is our strength

One of my favorite scriptures is Romans 8:28, which says, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Some beauty is well worth the wait

There are not too many things more beautiful than the colors of spring – anything from flowering trees to flowering bushes to flowering plants. My favorite is the azaleas, which are about in full bloom.

Christians should think as the Lord does

What place have you given God?

As Jesus was concluding what has become known as the "Sermon on the Mount," he said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matt. 6:33, 34).

Area ushers are a committed crowd

God cares for man

With the natural disasters that happen in the world, some want to say God does not care for mankind. This is far from the truth. The natural disasters that happen are just that – things of nature. They have happened down through the ages. To those who are involved in the disasters, our prayers go up to God that they soon will be able to go about their normal lives.

New gender-neutral Bible draws critics

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In the old translation of the world's most popular Bible, John the Evangelist declares: "If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar." Make that "brother or sister" in a new translation that includes more gender-neutral language and is drawing criticism from some conservatives who argue the changes can alter the theological message.

Faith will keep us marching forward

The Israelites were instructed to march once around Jericho for six days and seven times around on the seventh day. Then they were to shout and the city walls would fall. Some of the Israelites probably were questioning God in their minds and, at the same time, becoming tired and weary. I can't help but think that some may have been a little excited about what the outcome would be. Either way, they obeyed God and shouted out in faith and experienced God's miraculous intervention as they conquered Jericho. The walls fell as God had promised (Joshua 6 ...

Seek memories to bring God closer

Memories are an important part of life. Most people can remember their first ride on a bicycle, their first job or how it felt to drive for the first time with a license. There are memories of those who have passed away, stories they told, things they did.

Spiritual growth is in His hands

It is not yet officially spring, but we can see the signs. Flowers and trees are budding. Grass is greening up. And some of us have started to plant a few things in the garden. I have planted broccoli, onions, cabbage and potatoes. To date, everything looks good, except I have yet to see any evidence of potatoes.

Do you want to follow God or follow idols?

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Against such, there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another" (Galatians 5:13-25).

We must be forgiving servants in obeying God

Mankind needs to thank God for the fact that Jesus came to Earth, died at Calvary and rose again the third day. Without the blood of Christ, no man could be saved from sin. The debt of sin is too great for man to repay, but Christ paid the debt for all men.
