  • To the Young: Pick up the Pace

    The youth of today encounter many challenges and have many blessings that previous generations did not. My heart enjoys fond memories of my youth, but also hurts to remember the foolishness of my own youthful actions and attitudes. I am burdened for the young, that they learn God’s lessons the easy way through the Word and not through the painful lessons of life. Here are some observations and truths from Psalm 71.

  • A Pull in Two Directions

    Did you ever play with a magnet when you were growing up?  It was fascinating what you could do with them.  Now we have the side of our refrigerator covered with magnetic pictures of family, friends and reminders.

  • The Command to Gather Together

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    A growing trend within the Christian culture is the abandonment of the local church. Fewer believers are committing to a local church as a member and most of them find reasons not to regularly attend. Recently, a study revealed that individuals who do not regularly attend church but claim to be believers state reasons such as:

    1. I need down time

    2. There are no good churches nearby

    3. The needs of my family are not met

    4. They feel that it is nothing but routine

  • Searching for Happiness

    Solomon became involved in a search for happiness that has gone on since the beginning of time.  Ecclesiastes 12 is the conclusion of a long hard battle.  King Solomon was trying to discover the meaning of life.  He wanted to be happy.

    King Solomon didn’t want to miss out on anything.  He wanted to know how he could be happy without hurting himself or someone else.  He looked for happiness in things, but he concluded by finding happiness in God.

  • To the Middle-aged: Press forward, slow and steady

    By Jonathan Carl
    Guest Columnist

    Although many consider me to be young, I consider myself to be middle aged at 37, and I’m okay with that (see Psalm 90:10). I love seeing what God is doing among my age group, but I also am concerned by many things I see. Here are some observations and truths from Psalm 71.

    Psalm 71:6 “Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.”

  • So precious is Jesus

    The old hymn says, “He is so precious to me.”  In 2 Peter 2, Jesus is referred to as a living stone, a chosen stone, and a precious stone.

    There are two kinds of knowledge — things learned from what we hear and read and then knowledge from actual experience.  Peter speaks out of experience when he says, “Jesus is so precious to me.”

  • A Gospel Saturated Church

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

     

    Luke 24:32-35 – They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven and those who were gathered together, saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of bread.
