  • COLUMN: God is with us, 24-7

    Every hour of every day, or as many say 24-7, was the experience of Enoch.  Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5:21-24). He was always with God. In Psalm 73:23 the Psalmist speaks of always being in God’s presence. He believed, “It is good to be near God.”

    How do we walk with God continually through the day? We must invite God into our lives 24-7.

    To always be with God means we are held in God’s hands.  

  • COLUMN: 'Holy anger' is not the same as hatred

    What causes hatred?  

    Hatred comes from following our own sinful desires (Galatians 5:19-23).

    Is hating ever appropriate for God’s people? We see throughout Scripture that numerous situations elicited God’s hatred: idolatry among his people, injustice, oppression of the weak and poor, abuse of the marriage covenant and the dishonoring of his own name.  

  • COLUMN: God is with us all the way

    God gives many wonderful promises in his word.  There is God’s promise of love (John 3:16), forgiveness (1 John 1:9), salvation (Ephesians 2:8), everlasting life (John 10:28), answered prayer (1 John 5:14-15), and many, many others – about 7,000 promises. Many of those promises guide and encourage us. While the world and circumstances may change, God’s word never changes.

  • Remember and give thanks for freedom

    Memorial Day is an attempt to remember and say “Thanks” to those who gave their best so that we could continue to enjoy our freedoms.
    Our present commemoration of this day came out of the Civil War when in 1865 some ladies in Vicksburg, Miss., chose May 30 as a day to place flowers on the graves of their war dead. This soon spread North and South and came to be known as “Decoration Day.” Finally, it was called “Memorial Day” to honor the fallen of all our nation’s wars who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

  • Sickness and sin began with Adam and Eve

    Physical illness and death are a result of the Fall, when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3).
    Throughout the Old and New Testaments, individuals prayed for healing. The gospels record 41 distinct healings as well as others that are mentioned generally. God at times healed directly, sometimes through a prophet, an apostle, or an ordinary believer (Acts 8:58).
