Do we worship the Bible?

I know we often refer to the Scriptures as being holy, and I know we use them as we worship God, but is that the same as to worship the Bible? Continue

By this time last year, my Christmas tree was up and decorated, some presents were hidden away in a closet, and even though Carol’s cancer was back (my older sister) and she’d said it would be her last Christmas, I was feeling a little Christmasy inside. Little did I know that last year, it wouldn’t just be Carol’s last Christmas, but Jeff’s and Jerry’s, too (two of my older brothers). I don’t feel like celebrating anything this year. I tried making a few cards but lost interest in it. My tree…See More

There’s no getting rid of the stigma.

It’s said that people will turn to the church and to God first for help and answers to the problems of daily life (especially those who are experiencing mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression) because professional help is so expensive but they turn away from the church…

Through Him, I have been forgiven, declared righteous, and am precious in God's eyes.

The piece of text on the image said, "I'm not what I ought to be. I'm not what I wish to be. I'm not even what I hope to be. But by God's grace and Jesus' love I'm not what I used to be."



All of us do things or have things in our lives that God doesn't want. None of us live in sinless perfection, but does that mean we shouldn't talk about God or share the gospel of Christ until we do?



I want to please God with my life, but I know I fail in many ways. My failures don't mean… Continue

His death was in exchange for your life.

Have you ever examined yourself on the question of whether or not you turned to Christ out of fear for yourself, your eternal destiny, and what He can give you, or because you were truly sorry for the sinful life you've lived and what it cost Jesus to be your Redeemer, the One Who ransomed you, paid the price for your release from sin and its consequences and you love Him?



His death was in exchange for your life. "Through His blood" means by His death (Colossians… Continue

Well, somehow I made it through this Sunday morning's church service. Just kidding ...



The focus as usual was on God and exalting Him.



Love and thankfulness to God were apparent in those who participated in leading the service ... through the songs and communion, through prayer and the reading of the Scriptures.



Truly, for the time I'm there, they make it easy for me to remove my eyes from my own problems and focus on God.



This morning's Scripture… Continue

Can people love someone whatever is true about them?

Yes! by the renewing the mind.

The UN-renewed Mine!!

#1. An UN-renewed mine is always waging war against unbelief.

#2. Ever praying for faith, but never arriving.

#3. Talking unbelief, yet struggling to get faith,

#4. Confessing failure, at the same time, confessing faith in the Word, yet denying it in action,

#5. Trying to believe, yet never acting on the Word.

 This is the attributes of Love, "God's kind of love" that we are to have as a Christian.

1 Cor. 13:4-8 Amp. Affirmation

God is Love

Because I walk in love, and love lives in me

#1. I endure long

#2. I’m patient and kind,

#3. I’m never envious, nor do I boil over with jealously

#4. I’m never boastful or vainglorious

#5. I never display myself haughtily

#6. I’m not conceited, arrogant or inflated with pride

#7. I’m never rude, or unmannerly, and I never act unbecomingly

#8. I never insist on my own rights, or my own ways

#9. I am not self-seeking

#10. I’m never touchy, fretful, or resentful

#11. I take no account of an evil done to me

#12. I pay no attention to a suffered wrong

#13. I do not rejoice at injustice, and unrighteousness

#14 But I do rejoice when right and truth prevail

#15. I bear up under anything, and everything that comes

#16. I am ever ready to believe the best of everyone

#17. My hopes are fade-less under all circumstances

#18. I endure everything without weakening

#19. For the love in me never fails, never fades out, becomes obsolete, or comes to an end
