  • The Wise Men Came and Were Never the Same

    As we are walking through the Christmas season, it is imperative that each of us take a moment and breathe. If your schedule is anything like mine, then you are probably booked with special events, family functions, and just the chaos of attending to every need around you. This type of schedule attacks our ability to maintain focus on the reason that we celebrate this season, Jesus.

  • His Name is Wonderful

    Bible names meant something -- Peter meant rock, Jesus meant Savior, Jacob meant supplanter.  Jesus is given at least 212 names in the Bible --   Lamb, Lion, Lily of the valley, and many others.  Isaiah sums up how he felt when he called Jesus “Wonderful”  in Isaiah 9:6-7.

  • Messages of the Manger

    One of our favorite Christmas carols is “Away in a Manger,” loved by young and old.  Have you ever wondered why Jesus was born in a smelly bed of hay and laid in an animal feeding trough?  In 1964 Leslie Flynn wrote of some great truths to be learned from Jesus’ birth in a stable.

  • May Our Hearts Burn
  • God Became Man

    During Advent Christians will be focusing on the coming of Christ — His first coming, but also His promise to return.  Many titles are given to Christ in the Bible.  “Emmanuel” is one of them, and it means “God with us.”

    Christmas is the miracle of God coming to earth to be with us.  He who made the universe came and lived on this planet.  The one who flung the stars into space came as a baby.  He retained His deity while assuming humanity.  God became man — the doctrine of the Incarnation.

  • Thankfulness

    By Jonathan Carl

    Do you remember the lines learned in childhood:  “Nobody loves me.  Everybody hates me, I’m going out and eat some worms.”

    Our tendency when things go wrong is to feel sorry for ourselves.  We become convinced that nobody cares.  We delight in nursing our hurts.  This is a symptom of self-centeredness.

  • The unchanging one

    God says of Himself in Malachi 3:6, “I the Lord do not change.”  In our world today we long for stability because we are surrounded by change.  To satisfy this longing I would point you to God who is the unchanging and eternal one. Observe some things the Bible tells us about God.
