Remember the meaning of Easter, 'Jesus is alive'

It is the day before Easter. Think what it must have been like almost 2000 years ago on that day – before the first Easter.

The will, seen in Father and Son

Jesus freely chose to die. No wonder that a current internet site asks rhetorically if He were not complicit in His own death?

There is a standard in religion (part 2)

Last week we saw the need for a standard to be followed in religion. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (II Tim. 3:16,17). Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (II Peter 1:20,21).

What is truth?

In the book of John before Jesus was crucified he had been sent to Pilate, the Roman governor. This Pilate had the responsibility of either releasing Jesus or handing him over to be crucified. Jesus told Pilate that he had came into the world to testify to the truth and that everyone on the side of truth listens to him. At this Pilate asked this aged old question, "What is truth?"

There is a standard, part 1

While doing some mission work on the Island of Grenada some years back, I was asked by a gentleman, "Why there are so many different beliefs in the world?" That was and is a good question.

No to alcohol on Sundays, and every day in between

There has been a lot of debate recently concerning the topic of alcohol, especially the change of the law regarding the selling of it on Sunday in restaurants. I do not see a difference between serving it on Sunday verses on Monday, Tuesday etc.

Is there a God? (part 2)

Last week I posed two questions: Is there a God?, and If so, what is He like?

Know God

There was a little girl busy at work, surrounded by crayons, markers and paper. When her mom asked what she was doing she said, "I'm drawing a picture of God." Her mom replied, "But, sweetheart, no one knows what God looks like." Quickly the little one responded, "That's because I haven't finished my picture yet."

A tribute to Jimmy Burnsed

We read in the scripture where Jesus confronted people and asked them to become His followers and there were some who did. He exemplified what it meant to be obedient to God the Father. His disciples were to do the same as well as follow Him in His mission to bring salvation to the lost.

Are we forgiving servants? (2)

Last week we looked at a parable Jesus used to teach about forgiveness. The unforgiving servant was delivered to the tormentors. Jesus said, "So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses" (Matt. 18:35).

Reflections after the passing of a good friend

The word came to us last weekend. A good friend, 47-years-old, died of cancer. My wife, Tina, had worked closely with Brenda to start a weekday preschool program in our church in Indiana. Brenda had become director when we moved. We visited the church last June, and Brenda gave Tina a tour of the new preschool facilities. They were both so excited.

Diagnosed with eternal life

This last Saturday evening I ended up going to "Urgent One" with a swollen and very sore throat.

Are we forgiving servants? (1)

We need 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.

God always offers second chances

I was only in the house for two or three minutes. But by the time I returned to my back porch flames and smoke were pouring from the grill. The house was never in any danger. But the steaks were ruined. Burned to a crisp. Even the dog looked the other way.

The leggings debate is a problem for men, too

This week, a Christian mother decided to give up leggings because she didn’t want any unwanted advances from lustful men who saw her in the tight-fitting clothing, which I wrote about Tuesday.

Keep pressing on to the goal

Paul was a man who sought to do what God wanted him to do, no matter the cost. He tried to live in a manner that brought glory to God, and pointed people to Jesus.

Pastors set goals for coming year

A new year means planning, new expectations and setting goals.

Thoughts, behavior can be conquered

Have you ever asked yourself, "Who would I like to become?" What people or events in life have hindered your reaching that goal? To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.

Not knowing what's ahead

I went to a conference last week in Florida and when traveling home on Interstate 95, I noticed some flashing lights to my left in the oncoming lanes.

I'm still getting used to my new computer. It is a Mac as opposed to a PC; those letters mean something to some of you.

Listen to right one for eternal life

Many still believe the lie of Satan today; they fail to see that sin separates man from God (Isaiah 59:1-2). They fail to understand that when they give in to their desires to do wrong things, they - not God - are causing the problem.

One more time around the moutain

At the beginning of a new year, many resolutions are made. If someone could find a way to fine or charge people for broken resolutions, they would quickly become very wealthy.

Don't have a disappointing destination

Sunday afternoon, I was watching a football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. I'm not a fan of either team; the only reason I was watching it was that it was the playoffs.

God has spoken to mankind throughout ages

"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds" - Hebrews 1:1-2
