  • COLUMN: Guilty conscience can lead us back to God

     If a Christian does wrong, it is good that he feels guilty for it shows the Holy Spirit is at work in his life. Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “… he will convict the world of its sin.”(John 16:8).

    Guilt plays a big part in confession. When the prophet Nathan confronted King David about his sin, the king confessed to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord" (II Samuel 12:13). Guilt is like a warning light on the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong.

    When God shows us our wrong, how do we handle the guilt?

  • TOUCHPOINTS: God will never fail us

     Life sometimes brings unpleasant circumstances our way. At times, we will all feel cheated, angry and frustrated. 

    Emotions like these are natural, but we can't hold on to these feelings and have contentment in our life. Bitterness will take the place of peace and contentment. 

  • COLUMN: Paul learned the secret of being content

    Many people seem to find no satisfaction in life and thus walk around in discontent lacking fulfillment.

    Paul stands in stark contrast to these when he gives his testimony in Philippians 4:11-19.

    Paul writes from terrible conditions being in prison, yet he said he was content even in this situation.

    He said, contentment is learned. The situations of life are a school house to learn contentment, but some never learn and thus their lives are unfulfilled, unsatisfied and

    unhappy.

    Paul gives four insights on how to learn contentment.

  • COLUMN: Shut my mouth, please

     If I were God, I would’ve made people with delay devices on their mouths or a filter of some kind.

    For example, when your brain wants to say, “Poodles aren’t real dogs,” before it comes out of your mouth the delay device would kick in and send you a message: “Really? Is that really what you want to say in front of this group of people who may or may not include poodle owners?”

  • COLUMN: Take steps toward stress-free living

     We would all agree that we are living in stressful times. The threat of terrorism added to living in this technical age results in stress on every side. Many people endure life with many others living a joyous life.

    Paul’s words to the Philippians give us some steps for managing stress and having joy in our lives (4:4-8). ”Rejoice in the Lord always” (4:4).

    Is this possible? Listen to Paul’s strategy.
