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 […]

It’s official: Pastor Joseph Hovsepian is returning to Armenia this summer and his wife, Jessie, will be accompanying him on his sixth (her third) mission trip to their ancestral homeland. Please pray for them–and for those they will meet and minister to–as they prepare to travel. They will leave Montreal on August 19 and return […]

why go to church

Why go to church every Sunday?

A Christian wrote a letter to the editor of the newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me I can’t remember a single one […]


Do you attend a Bible study?

D.L. Moody once said: “I prayed for faith and thought that some day it would come down and strike me like lightning. But faith didn’t seem to come. One day I read in Romans that ‘faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.’ I had, up to this time, closed my Bible […]

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 […]



Matthew 27:27-54 For the next few minutes, I  invite you to disconnect yourself from worldly thoughts and join me while I follow Jesus Christ from a short distance. 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 […]
