The other day I was raking my yard and was burning the debris in my usual burn pile. My little granddaughter, who is about a year and a half old, went running towards the fire. I think she was just amazed at the colorful sight and never really got that close. As I watched I noticed her four year old brother coming out of nowhere, standing between her and the fire with his arms open telling her to stay back. For you that are freaking out about now, I was standing close enough to intervene if necessary.

To help us in fulfilling your responsibilities as man and wife God has given rules to live by. "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing ...

Is your life too busy? I would imagine that a number of readers would immediately say, "Yes, no doubt." We certainly have a way of filling up the hours in every day, do we not? I recently finished reading a book entitled "Simple Life."
What do you think of when you think of Easter? We need to understand that there is a secular celebration as well as a spiritual one. I don't think there is a problem with celebrating both as long as we don't somehow mingle them together. On the secular side we have the Easter bunny, coloring and finding eggs,special decorations and of course candy. On the spiritual side there is of course the celebration of our risen Savior Jesus Christ with special services and events that day and the preceeding week. What we need to understand is that ...
Marriage is a blessing given to mankind by God. "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for ...
Dr. Joseph Rayman and Dr. Peggy Rayman, a husband-and-wife team, are passionate about their mission. The couple says they are inspired by the scripture of Matthew 28:19 to take the Gospel into African countries and train others to spread the word.
I understand this is not the type of article some people like to read. However, when we think about the state of affairs concerning our children, I believe it is necessary. Too many of our children are headed in the wrong direction. I'm grateful for all the children who are on track and doing well, but for those who are falling by the wayside, I think this is good advice.
I believe spring is finally here; the temperature is rising and the birds are singing. This is my favorite time of the year mainly because there is this feeling of coming alive. Another reason I like it is because of Easter; where we celebrate a Savior coming alive after He was killed and buried for three days. The significance of this is that He now sits at God the Father's side offering forgiveness and a new life for all who will put their lives in His hands. Jesus Christ died so that those who are depressed, lonely, hurting and ...

Recorded in Genesis 5:24 are the words, "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." People down through the years have read these words and asked the question, "How can I walk this way?" As in all things religious we must look into the word of God to find the answer to our question.
Yes, it's that time again, when people are running over each other to get a gift for a friend or love one.
You are the sum total of every decision you have ever made - good, bad or indifferent. Neither God nor the devil can be blamed for where you are in life. You are where you are and have what you have because of your decisions.

More people think about Jesus this time of year than at any other. You hear people say "He is the reason for the season." The thing is he is the reason for all the seasons.
This holiday season is my most favorite time of the year. Thanksgiving Day has come and gone, but not in our hearts, for we always give thanks for so much.
Each Sunday in December, including Christmas Eve, candles are lit in celebration of Advent. This past Sunday was the first day when only one candle was lit.
Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? I remember receiving a phone call from my mom many years ago. It was sometime in August, just before school was to start. We were about three minutes into the conversation when she said to me in a very excited tone, "I've finished my Christmas shopping!"
The Bible tells us many things about Jesus.
The new pastor in town is excited to be in the area.
Psalm 100 is the song of a thankful heart, a command to worship and serve this God, who made us by entering into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. These praises unto God must be sung from our lips and from the depths of our souls. We must praise the Lord in the place recognized by the world as His court and also within the gates of our secret lives. If there is no praise for our God, then surely our song will not be accepted.
If we think about it, there are many reasons we could come up with to give thanks.
I trust that your Thanksgiving was a good time. Some of you have sped by Thanksgiving and spent Friday in the stores. Others may not read this article until they have visited even more stores today.
What do we know about Jesus? Some only know that he was the son of God, others that he died on a cross to save man.
