  • A pattern for sucess

    When we want to learn about success, we try to find someone who has done it.  We had rather have a model of success than a manual of success.   

    Next to the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul is the best model for successful Christian living we can find.  Paul was an incredible man who lived life to the full and made his life count.  He encouraged the Philippians to “pattern their lives after his” (3:17).

  • God's Desire for you

    God is in the life changing business. He takes a life that is bent and straightens it; a shattered one and puts it together again and a dirty one and cleans it.

    There are two basic opinions as to how God changes a life. One is the passive approach where God does it all. The other opinion is the activist approach where it is all up to us. But I think it is a combination of the two where we  both have a part.

  • Every Christian’s Desire

    God’s will for every Christian is that we grow spiritually.  The writer of Hebrews challenges us, “... let us ... go on to maturity” (6:1).  God wants us to be like His Son. As Christians our standard for measuring our growth is not another Christian, but the Word of God.

    Life means problems; therefore, we spend much of our days facing and solving problems in the right attitude.  As long as we remain in this body we will face problems.

  • Handling Temptation

    Man’s oldest problem is temptation.  Adam and Eve were the first to be tempted in the Garden of Eden, but we know that everyone eventually faces temptation.

    Temptations are designed by Satan to cause us to sin.  How can we say “no” to temptation, when we want to say “yes”?  The answer to that question is of interest to us all.

  • Let’s eat grandma

    The last time we visited the church we like, the pastor’s message was titled, “Let’s Eat Grandma — the Importance of Punctuation.”

    My first reaction was, “Hmmm. Punctuation? Really?” He spoke about commas.

    I’m a word person and I know a little bit about grammar and punctuation, but not much. And commas always throw me off.

  • The way to good days in 2016

    The Apostle Peter says, “Whoever would love life and see good days must …” (1Peter 3:10-12). Peter goes ahead to tell us some things that we must do to see these good days. These are fascinating verses as we enter a new year for all of us would like good days in 2016.
