  • Put in, take out

    Jesus attended a wedding in Cana.  His mother and disciples were also present.  A wedding was an event where most of the community took part.  The wedding feast and ceremony were usually held the same evening.  The couple was escorted through the streets to their home with as many as possible participating.  The wedding couple instead of going on a honeymoon would have open house for a week and entertain in their wedding clothes.

  • Hatred, bitterness

    Have you ever noticed how much hatred and bitterness fills our world? How easy it is to hold onto anger and resentment? Oftentimes I think we feel ourselves more forgiving than we really are. I recently looked up the definitions for some of these terms, and here is what I found:

    Forgive - to stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake; to cancel (a debt)

    Hate - to feel intense or passionate dislike

    Bitterness - anger and disappointment at being treated unfairly; resentment

  • Powers of Life

    Dwight L. Moody was asked to conduct a funeral service.  Since this was his first, he went to the Bible to observe what Christ did in His earthly ministry.  He found that Christ broke up every funeral He ever attended.

    One day Jesus was entering the city of Nain and met a funeral procession.  A widow’s son had just died and the burial group was on their way to the cemetery.  

  • The Necessity of Sowing

    We all enjoy the harvest. The celebration of fresh fruits and vegetables are a delight. Likewise, it is a delightful celebration when a spiritual harvest takes place. When the seed of the gospel takes root in the life of an unbeliever and he or she responds to the gospel and enters into a relationship with Jesus a harvest celebration commences. Unfortunately, we get so centered on the harvest that we forget that every harvest begins with the sowing of the seed. Where seed is not sown, the harvest will never occur and where the seed is sown, the harvest will happen.

  • The windows of Heaven

    A house without windows would not be very inviting.  Windows serve two functions ­— they let light in from the outside, and they allow us to view the beauty of the outside world.

    Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, an American-Swiss psychiatrist, a pioneer in near-death studies and author of the book, Death and Dying, said “People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.”
