Are we taking care?

With our physical bodies we realize they need care. When we become dirty we wash, if we are injured or sick we seek medical attention to take care of the problem.

April an important time for Christians

It is April and for those of us who are Christians this is a very important time in the church calendar. Lent is almost over. Holy week has begun and soon we will celebrate Easter. Easter is that time when we remember the one thing that set our faith far above all others religions. Christians have a risen savior who is the son of the living God. Luke 24: 1- 12 records the event as follows:

As Easter approaches, what will you do with this one called Christ?

This next Sunday we celebrate what is traditionally known as Palm Sunday. This commemorates the time in scripture where just a few days before Christ's crucifixion he was seen riding a donkey through Jerusalem with the crowds wanting to crown him as king. Many threw their outer garments and palm branches on the ground in front of him signifying their willingness to submit to his authority and to acknowledge him as their leader sent from God the Father. They shouted words of praise and adoration. Many were there that day because they wanted to be part of the crowd ...

More on the importance and weight of words

Last week we talked about the importance of words. We need to be aware of how we use words. They are both able to build up and to tear down.

Consecration

II Corinthians 5:14, 15: "For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."

Close, but not close enough

God has always had a plan for us

God has always had a plan for mankind. When He created the earth he did so in such a fashion that the world was ready for man to inhabit. Later when man sinned God had a plan to save man.

Sometimes we make things harder than they are

This past Sunday we showed the movie, "Facing the giants." In preparation for this movie we had to hook up the DVD player and run it through the LCD projector which should have been a simple task. We could get the sound but no picture thinking the whole time that we had everything hooked up right.

Let the sun (Son) shine in

The place where I live has a whole bunch of trees in the yard. When we first moved in we had satellite television installed but a couple of years ago the experts said that we could no longer get a signal because of too many tree branches in the way (it's a miracle that we ever did receive a signal). The trees have also caused some problems. I planted some small citrus trees and some blueberry bushes but am having problems getting them to grow because of one key problem; the sun cannot get through. I have taken out ...

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).

Talk with, listen to the Father

One of the leading causes of divorce (or any other disagreement or estrangement) is the lack of communication.

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.

Use your gifts to help the church, glorify God

What are your expectations of Jesus?

When Jesus came to Earth over 2,000 years ago, people had different expectations of him - if, indeed, he was who he said he was, the Messiah.

Do maintenance every day as part of Christian life

A little over eight years ago, my wife and I built our first house together. Over the past couple of years, we have been repainting the interior walls and have replaced carpeting, and now are replacing door jambs and repainting exterior doors.
