Read the Bible to discern God's voice

School is out in Bryan County. Graduation ceremonies will be held today for both Bryan County and Richmond Hill high schools. For many young men and women, today marks the completion of one task, but it's only the beginning of a brand-new phase of their lives. Excitement fills the air.

It looks worse than it is

"Jesus asked, "Do you finally believe? But the time is coming - indeed it's here now - when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone.

But take heart, because I have overcome the world" (John 16:31-33).

Where does your faith rest? Part 1

Where does your faith rest? In other words, why do you believe the things you believe about religion and why do you profess to be a part of a certain group?

Study God's word while you can

Our televisions and newspapers have been filled recently with stories of natural disasters around the world. Our hearts go out and our prayers go up to God for those who have been devastated by these happenings. It may take years for life to return to normal for many of these families.

A signature you'll wish you had

The other day I went to the bank to deposit my check and when I handed it to the teller she handed it right back. She let me know she could not deposit it because it didn't have a signature.

Commit to pray today and every day

Prayer is one of the most essential elements of a Christian's life. To think that we can speak with the God of creation is a mind-boggling thought. But it is the truth. God has invited us to speak to him regularly. Paul wrote, "Pray without ceasing." And so we know that prayer is essential.
