  • Being obedient with the Word

    Biblical engagement is critical for the personal development of the believer. It is impossible for a follower of Christ to be faithfully walking in the Lord if the individual does not know the ways of the Lord. Unfortunately, a recent survey indicated that only 14% of adults in our country read the Bible daily and that only another 14% read it several times a week. As followers of Christ, we are called to know the Word, live the Word, share the Word, and teach the Word. In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus declares:

  • Live Wisely

    Jesus made a most interesting statement in Luke 12:15 (NLT) when He said, “Real life is not measured by how much we own.” He made this assessment after being asked to help settle a family dispute on dividing a family estate. In response, Jesus gave a parable about a rich farmer. He dealt with greed and covetousness, and concluded by calling the farmer a “fool.” Why?

  • Stand in Awe

    By Jonathan Carl

    I love fireworks. I love how they capture my attention and overwhelm my senses with their spectacular rainbow starbursts. When fireworks light up the sky, I stop and marvel at their beauty and power.

  • Walking Tall for Jesus

    In 1964, Buford Pusser was elected sheriff of McNairy County, which is located on the Mississippi-Tennessee state line. He set about to clean up the corruption in his home county which he dearly loved. His mantra was “Walk Tall and carry a big stick.”

    A movie was made about the sheriff’s efforts in cleaning up his county. The movie was entitled, “Walking Tall.” This term stands for anyone who goes against the grain, who seeks to make a difference and goes against the tide of society.

  • Embrace your weaknesses, fear your strengths

    By Dr. Paul D. Richey

    Let’s be honest for a moment. No one likes to be described as weak, feeble, or frail. Rather, people long for descriptive terms like resilient, strong, and durable. Individuals desire to believe in their own strength to conquer life and overcome obstacles. The truth is that life in Christ should be counter to this. Believers should embrace their weaknesses and trust the strength of the Lord. One should fear the threat of living independently in our limited, fleshly strength. The Psalmist writes in Psalm 20:7-8:

  • Steps to Contentment

    Many people seem to find no satisfaction in life and they walk around in discontent lacking fulfillment. Paul stands in stark contrast to these when he gives his testimony in Philippians 4:11-19.

    Paul writes from terrible conditions being in prison, yet he said he was content even in this situation. He said, contentment is learned.  The situations of life are a schoolhouse to learn contentment, but some never learn and thus their lives are unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and unhappy.

  • Christian Risk

    By Jonathan Carl

    Guest Columnist

    Americans live in the midst of a society that seeks to avoid and minimize risk. This includes health, home, auto insurance, warranties, refunds, licensing, bonding, ratings and reviews. People who are risk takers seem out of place among us and may be referred to as crazy, stupid, or adrenaline junkies. Yet, when the reward seems great enough, we may begin to consider taking risks we might not otherwise take.
