Scriptural

Through the Eyes of God

Most believers have heard of the phrase: “What would Jesus do?” There is even an acronym that we have adopted, WWJD that makes it quick. The point is to try to imagine what Jesus would do in any given situation that one faces in life. Since we believe Christ was the only human on earth…

When bad things happen

As you go through life you will notice that both good and bad things happen. No one is immune to the forces of life itself. Even with the best of planning you can’t predict exactly when or what life will unfold. But one thing is certain; you will have to find a way of dealing…

Faith, Hope & Love

I wanted to write about what hope means to us, but when I started reflecting upon a passage that Paul mentions to the Corinthians, faith, hope and love appear to be intertwined. They go together is an odd kind of way. “For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see…

Spiritual Warfare

There are many things in this life we must face that are unpleasant. Unfortunately when it rains, it rains on the righteous and the unrighteous.

The Good Shepherd

In John 10:27 Christ said: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” Unfortunately not all people, especially in modern times, can understand some of the examples that Christ used in His many sermons and lessons. This is because when He spoke among the people He used examples that were…

The Lord’s Prayer
