• Knowing God's will requires a renewed mind

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    Time after time I have been asked to help individuals decipher the will of God for their lives. Each occurrence allowed me to emphasize that no earthly individual can determine or decipher for another individual what God’s will is. Rather, it is imperative that we understand that God has revealed to us in His Word key components to distinguishing His will for life. In Romans 12:1-2 the Apostle Paul gives three important keys to determining what God desires for your life.

    The Celebration of The Nativity

  • In a moment

    We are all familiar with the process of change.  In the physical world we are witnesses to the process right now especially in the changing of seasons.

    Green leaves have changed color and are falling from the trees.  Fields once green with corn and beans have been harvested leaving the land bare.

    Physically, we are aware of change --- out, up,  bigger around, you name it.  I’m really wasting time and space trying to convince you of something so evident everywhere.

  • Pray for your President

    By Jonathan Carl

    Guest Columnist

    I’m writing this several days before the election, but by the time this column makes it to print and is being read, we should know who our next President of the United States will be. President Clinton? President Trump? A third party candidate?

  • Which love do you choose?

    Everyone faces a constant battle of which love will they choose? Though there are many dimensions of love, there are two main loves that we must consider. First, do we choose the love that is self-centric, self-promoting, and based in the flesh or do we choose the love of the heavenly Father which is characterized as unconditional, sacrificial, and holy. The Apostle John speaks to this in 1 John 2:15-17.

  • The Glorious Cross

    Glorious!  I would certainly use this word describing the cross.  And yet, in itself the cross was not glorious.  It was an instrument of torture and shame.  The Jew said:  “Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.”  Cicero said, “Far be the cross, not only from the eyes and ears, but even from the thoughts of the Roman citizen.”

    Revival at Munfordville Separate Baptist Church

  • Enroll in Christ’s School

    From the cradle to the grave we are learners.  We have many teachers along the way, which include experience, example, sorrow, communion with God, and fellowship with the great people of the world.  Christ is the Master Teacher of all ages.  He knows more about the stars than the greatest astronomer, and more about the body than the greatest physician.  This great Teacher invites us to learn from Him (Matthew 11:29).

  • Enemies

    Have you ever been deeply hurt by someone? Felt your trust violated? Been betrayed?

    Can’t I just get even?

    Sometimes our initial response is to fight back. Or to plot how to get revenge. Sometimes we do this with our stares, our words, or our actions. But God says vengeance belongs to Him and warns us not to seek vengeance on our own.

    “Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.” Romans 12:17
