What kind of God is this?

I think about the love I have for my wife all the time, especially the feeling I have when I see her smile. The joy that comes over me when I am the source of that smile is overwhelming. Sometimes the hair on the back of my neck stands up when she walks into a room. It is easy to love someone this way, especially when you know that the love is reciprocal. I am sure there are some husbands who can identify with what I am saying.

Only one way leads to Heaven

We all have ways of doing things. As human beings, created in the image of God and given the ability to make choices, sometimes we disagree. God gives us this license when it comes to earthly things.

Remember to stay focused on Jesus

It is very easy during this time of the year to lose focus on what is important. With the pressure of society, family and friends, sometimes we find ourselves caught in a whirlwind of wants, requests and desires that blur the vision that was so clearly mapped out for us just a few months earlier.

Who is it you're giving thanks to?

At this time of year, we hear a lot about the things we should be thankful for, such as family, good health, financial resources and the things we need that they buy. It is important to give thanks for the blessings of life that we receive. But there is another question that needs to be answered: Who is the recipient of our thanks?

Live by the message from Heaven

The God of creation did not just create man and leave him to his own devices. God speaks to man so man can know what God desires of him. The way God speaks to man has changed thorough the centuries of time.

Do you listen to what God says?

Many years ago, my wife and I moved away to New Orleans to go to school. We were both in our early 20s, having been married only a year and a half. We were scared and excited, all at the same time. I imagine that our parents (both sets) were more frightened than excited.

Always love thy neighbor as thyself

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" (Matt. 22:36-40).

What happened to sin

It is really interesting that the media's No. 1 story the other day was about Prince William and Katie Middleton's engagement. You couldn't find an outlet that wasn't covering this story, as if it was so important.

Stone movers wanted by God

"Jesus said, 'Take ye away the stone.' Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, 'Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days.' Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, 'Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.' And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth.' And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin.

Come now, let us reason together: Part 2
