  • TOUCHPOINTS: A true friend is loyal - always

    True friendship requires loyalty during all kinds of times. 

    There is a vast difference between knowing someone well and being a true friend.  When loyalty is present a relationship is secure and solid. When it is not, we live in insecurity and fear. 

    As a loyal person we say, “It doesn't matter what happens around us or between us there is nothing that can make me turn my back on you.”

    I Corinthians 13:7 says: “Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

  • COLUMN: One good deed deserves another

    "One good deed deserves another." We have heard this all of our lives.

  • COLUMN: Greater awareness follows real encounter with God

    Woe is me! For I am undone. Because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Hosts. Isaiah 6:5

    After a successful crusade someone asked Billy Graham, “Is this revival?”

    “No,” he replied. “When revival comes, we’ll see two things we haven’t seen yet: A fresh sense of God’s holiness; and a heightened awareness of our own sin and carnality.”

  • COLUMN: Real love is from God

  • COLUMN: Come out of hiding and start living

    When God called to Adam, “Where are you,” he replied, ‘I hid. I was afraid.’ Genesis 3:10

    Is fear causing you to hide from somebody? A boss? A husband or wife? A touchy co-worker? A strong-willed child?

    When God called to Adam, “Where are you,” he replied “I hid. I was afraid.” And we’ve all been hiding ever since.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Blessings come from God

    Today we don't hear much talk about blessing others, but in Bible times it was a vital part of their lives. 

    God was recognized as the ultimate source of the blessing and the person blessed would walk with the Lord and receive his benefits. Blessing from God comes to those who trust and obey him. 

    He has given us far more than we can possibly realize. Having a relationship with him, and being able to talk to him is a blessing in itself. Our God is the living God through whom all blessings flow. 

  • Grumbling and grouching are displeasing to God

    Grumbling!

    We all do it. You name it and we grumble about it. Our favorite subject is the weather. But it is a sin to grumble against God.

    The Apostle Paul told the Philippians Christians to “do all things without grumbling or disputing” (3:14). He was thinking of the children of Israel when they left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land. He said in I Corinthians they grumbled and were destroyed.

    God is displeased when His children grumble. Why?

  • COLUMN: God wants us to love the unlovable

    An actor was playing the part of Christ in an outdoor drama in the Ozarks. He was carrying the cross up the hill when a tourist began heckling him. Finally, the actor playing Christ laid his cross down and went over and punched out the heckler.

    The director said, “I know he was a pest, but we can't have the person playing Christ doing this, because Christ did not retaliate. If you do his again, you are fired.”

  • COLUMN: Be glad in the Lord and shout for joy

    But now I come to you and these things I speak in the world that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. John 17:13

    Did you know that worry-warts usually have a higher than average IQ? But they also tend to have a bad case of the “what-ifs.”

    “What if I wreck the car … or get sick … or lose my job … or don’t measure up to the challenge?”’

    Now most of this stuff never actually happens but the fear of it overwhelms them and prevents them from living life now.
