  • TOUCHPOINTS: Don't let sin control you

    Do not let sin control the way you live.

    Could it be to some that they believe a certain sin is OK as long as no one knows about it? You may
    believe if it is kept secret or private no one will ever know what you are hiding. Sin attacks the will and the soul, here and there, until we are deadened to what it is doing in our lives.

  • COLUMN: Make your ambition to please God

     When we want to learn about success, we try to find someone who has done it. We had rather have a model of success than a manual of success.  

    Next to the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul is the best model for successful Christian living we can find. Paul was an incredible man who lived life to the full and made his life count. He encouraged the Philippians to “pattern their lives after his” (3:17).

    In Philippians 3:12-14 Paul gives four keys to successful Christian living. First, face your shortcomings. Take an inventory of your life.

  • Christians are part of God’s family, working together

    We live in a world where a lot of emphasis is placed on possessions and popularity. The world wants to know how much money we have, how famous we are and how much power we have?
    But God asks questions like: Are you holy? Are you seeking to follow me? Are you striving to be a godly person?
    God is interested in your character and your holiness. So our question is: What kind of godly character is God seeking in a person?

  • TOUCHPOINTS: God provides material blessings for our enjoyment

    Scripture clearly teaches that God intends human life to include physical, emotional, and spiritual pleasure. But the Bible warns against the pursuit of certain pleasures: gluttony, extra-marital relations and drinking unto drunkenness, because they are sinful and ultimately produce great pain.

    Although the pleasures of life are not necessarily evil, neither do they bring ultimate meaning to life. Spiritual growth can be choked out by the pursuit of the pleasure of life. 

  • COLUMN: God is in the life-changing business

    God is in the life-changing business. He takes a life that is bent and straightens it; a shattered one and puts it together again; and a dirty one and cleans it.

    There are two basic opinions as to how God changes a life.

    One is the passive approach where God does it all. The other opinion is the activist approach where it is all up to us. But I think it is a combination of the two where we both have a part.

  • COLUMN: Troubles turn us better or bitter

     Have you heard that troubles will make you bitter or better? We decide which it will be. Blessings and difficulties come to us all. How we respond to the things that come into our lives is very important. Our response will reveal our character. We can all smile in the sunshine, but trouble reveals our true inner self.
