The Virgin Birth of Christ

Isaiah 7:14 – Luke 1:26-38 Many people seem confused about various religious teachings and beliefs. Even among those who claim to be Christians, there are some who have difficulty understanding who Jesus is. I have been asked questions such as: How can Jesus, a human, be God? Wasn’t Jesus born a human being? How can […]

“The Lord Had Left Him”

Judges 16:17-21 There are many tragic events recorded in the Bible, but there is hardly a statement as tragic as these words in the book of Judges about Samson: “But he did not know that the  Lord  had  left him.” (Judges 16:20) Is there anything more pitiful than a person who does not know his […]

The Christian Home

Ephesians 5:19-6:4 What is a Christian family or home? To the average person, these terms do not mean much more than that a family belongs to, or identifies with, the Christian religion. The family is under attack today. For many today, “home” no longer signifies a place of love, peace, safety, training, learning and growing. […]

Don’t Ignore the Warning Signs!

2 Timothy 4:1-18 Just about anywhere you go,  you will come across some kind of warning, whether in the form of symbols, lights, barriers or announcements. It seems we are controlled and governed by warnings, from parents, the police, governments, doctors, employers and so on. You would think all these warnings would have made our […]

Although Christ’s birth, youth and ministry were very unusual to those who were watching Him and His followers, His last days and hours on earth were beyond […]

Spiritual Growth Is a Choice

2 Thessalonians 1:1-4; 2 Peter 3:14-18 Our house is full of plants. Even as a child, I loved plants and enjoyed taking care of them and watching them grow. It’s important to note that their growth was a natural one. The plants did not choose to grow (or to not grow) or what kind of […]

Are You Missing The Point?

Colossians 3:1-17 In Colossians 3, Paul reminds Christians about their resolution—their commitment—to follow Christ. Verses 1 and 2 say: “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” In other […]

Accountability Time

Matthew 25:14-30 As a local church and ministry, we are accountable to all those who trust us with their gifts of money, time and help. Yet we are accountable to an even higher authority: God. Organizations are accountable to their members and shareholders. They must look at their investments, to see whether they had profits […]
