  • COLUMN: Simple rules to live by

     But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses, the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God; to walk in all his ways; to obey his commands; to hold fast to him; and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul. Joshua 22:5

    This verse gives us clear guidelines or specific actions for a Christian lifestyle:

  • COLUMN: Trust God, reduce worry

     Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear ... Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Matthew 6:25a, 27

    I try not to worry ... I really do. I try to turn all potential worries over to the Lord, because I know that he can handle them, he sees the big picture and he wants what's best for me. 

    But … we all can't help but be concerned about certain things that come into our lives.

  • COLUMN: Our mission is to 'go and tell' the gospel

     Richard Sharp said, “We can never turn the world upside down until we’ve turned the church inside out.”

    The people observed the early church in the book of Acts and said, "These men who have upset the world have come here also" (17:6). The early church had just a handful of people, no buildings and no budget, nothing except a zeal for the Lord. How did they turn the world upside down? Because they turned the church inside out.

  • COLUMN: Believe and obey the gospel

     A preacher once said, “My people believe the Gospel, but many of them don’t behave the Gospel.”

    Admiring truth is not enough. Doctrine and duty ought to go side by side. Belief and behavior should never be separated. Our lives must match our profession if we are to make an impression upon a lost world in our day.

    Every great doctrine of the Bible makes a practical demand upon our lives. If we say we believe the doctrines, then we need to obey them. Consider a few doctrines and the demands they bring with them.

  • COLUMN: Learn to be content with God's help

     Contentment is learned. It does not come instantaneously. The situations of life are the schoolhouse for learning contentment. 

    But some people never learn to be contented and the result is their lives are unfulfilled, unsatisfied and unhappy.

    The Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:11-19 gives four insights into contentment.  First, Paul says learn not to compare yourself to others.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Be gentle in your speech

     Do not speak evil of one another brethren. (James 4:11)

    “Do not speak evil” covers more than slander, extending to any form of speaking against someone, including truth, if it is delivered in a harsh and unkind way.  Speech is evil when it is motivated by the desire to harm others or to exalt oneself. 

    Sin cannot be understood or described without reference to self-centeredness. “The flesh” is self-focused.  Carnality is self-expression in behalf of a person’s own interests.
