Children of God

It is amazing, both in the Old Testament as well as the New, how many times followers of God are referred to as "Children of God." The Apostle Paul even calls new Christians "babes" or "infants."

How to walk with God (part 2)

Last week we started looking at the topic, "how to walk with God," we now continue those thoughts. God does not ask us to do the things He asked the Patriarchs to do, nor the things that were required of those under the Law of Moses. We are told to do the things that are right or necessary for us to be saved. All three time periods mesh together (Gal. 3:16 – 29).

Rain and spirituality

In the last month or so we have received quite a bit of rainfall; raining almost every day this week alone. Not long ago it was reported that we were several inches below normal for the year and believe it or not some local areas still are a little behind. (Definitely not my area.) As I listen to others talk, it seems that they understand that we need rain but they only want it when it will be convenient to their schedule.

'I want all to go'

Last year was the first year that all my family did not get to go home for the holidays. Oh I knew one day it would happen with everyone growing up and getting jobs, but still it just did not seem right to know that all my family would not be with me. In fact it made me sad.

Some good advice

One of the things I remember my father always saying to me was "unloaded guns kill a lot of people." I used to argue with him telling him that it is impossible for an unloaded gun to kill anyone since it was unloaded. He would respond with, "you know what I mean," and I did. For what he was really saying is that guns, which were supposedly empty, killed people because when they presume it so they tend to be more careless about them. I recently was putting a gun back in the cabinet and thought I remembered unloading it ...

‘I thought I saw a snake’

Tweety bird was alarmed every time she saw Sylvester the cat around her cage and said those famous words, "I tot I saw a puttycat." Well the other day as I was taking a 5 mile walk down the road and I suddenly noticed something just off of the pavement that looked like a snake. The color was right and the shape was curved just like a snake crawling across the ground. My first response was to jump away from this sight to get to a place where I could check it out. At a closer look I soon realized ...

Lessons from Vick

In the last few months Michael Vick, the Atlanta Falcons star quarterback, has gone from a sports hero to a distaste in many people's mouths. He had been accused of participating in the horrible sport of dog fighting. At first he denied that he was involved at all but recently has agreed to pleading guilty.

This leads me to my first point; there are many who deny that they have sinned and are in need of help and forgiveness. In the Christian faith this help comes in the form of a Savior, Jesus Christ, who came not only to ...

Don't settle for less with the Lord

The day after Thanksgiving, we began our Christmas decorating. It always is my job to get everything down from the attic, put the tree up and put lights on it. My wife does most of the rest. I put a few decorations near the top, including "the topper." Any outside decorations usually are my responsibilities, too.

Life can be ultimate carnival ride

If you are a fan either of the Bulldogs or the Yellow Jackets, you rode that coaster hard last Saturday. In all of my years of watching football (or any other sport), I do not remember a time when a game has swung back and forth like that. Even a basketball game with a one-point difference doesn't feel like that.
