Holy Spirit comes at Pentecost

"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them" Acts 1:2-4 (NIV).

Faith enables us to serve God

I once spoke with a young lady who felt like she was at the end of her rope. Things weren't working out; the children were acting up; her finances were in disarray. Though she was a Christian, she couldn't help but wonder where God was in the midst of all this.

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. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me. I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world" (John 16:31-33).

It is good to be free

Religious freedom has changed its identity over the years. One could believe that religious freedom started when our nation's founders separated from the mother country and established a nation where people were free to worship God in their own way. Biblical freedom, however, is obtained when a person accepts and receives Jesus Christ as their personal savior - when a person is born again.

Pastors set goals for coming year

A new year means planning, new expectations and setting goals.

January 28, 2015 | By Edith Anderson Correspondent | Faith


Thoughts, behavior can be conquered

Have you ever asked yourself, "Who would I like to become?" What people or events in life have hindered your reaching that goal? To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.

Plow-burning faith can change the world

"So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with 12 yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. 'Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,' he said, 'and then I will come with you.' 'Go back,' Elijah replied. 'What have I done to you?' So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and ...
