  • COLUMN: America's hope rests with God

    Things don’t sound so good in America. I doubt it will get any better without divine intervention. Recently I read an article about a typical day in America: 5,962 couples marry and 2,986 divorce; drunk drivers do $18 million worth of damage; 90 million cans of beer are consumed; 2,740 teenagers get pregnant; 63,288 cars crash killing 129 people; and 3,231 women have an abortion. Would you agree things don’t sound so good?

  • COLUMN: You can be redeemed and so happy in Jesus

    A little boy made a beautiful boat, which he loved very much. He was very sad when someone stole his boat, but sometime later he saw it downtown in a pawnshop window. 

    He rushed in and said to the shop owner, “That is my boat.” 

    The shop owner replied, “No, it is mine, I bought it.” 

    The boy said, “Yes, but I made it.” 

    “For $10 you can have it,” said the store owner.

  • COLUMN: God wants each generation to renew their faith

    That all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the Lord, that it is might, that you may fear the Lord your God forever. Joshua 4:24

    The phrase, “The hand of the Lord,” refers to God’s strength and power. The hand is a means by which work is accomplished and implies strength and power.

  • COLUMN: Tell your descendants about God

    What stories Moses had to tell!

    Moses witnessed events few people would ever see. God instructed Moses to tell his descendants about the miraculous experiences with Pharoah. (Exodus 10:2).

    As God was speaking to the Israelites he commanded that his laws for living be passed on from parents to children. Religious education is important. It helps each generation obey God and set their hope upon him. God commanded the fathers to make known to their children the praises of the Lord and his strength and the wonderful works he has done.

  • COLUMN: God's grace is amazing

    John Newton (1725-1807) wrote the words to the hymn “Amazing Grace.” God’s grace reached down and touched Newton, a slave trader, and saved his soul. Read the words of the hymn to see how the Lord saved Newton.

    Through the years many others have been pulled from a sinful life and had their feet placed on the solid rock. God’s amazing grace comes through Jesus Christ (John 1:17) and opens the door to God. When you have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ things happen which results in eternal changes.

    Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it is springs the issue of life. Proverbs 4:23

    Behind everything you do, there’s a thought. So if you want to change your life, you have to change your thinking.
