  • TOUCHPOINTS: Don't make promises

    We should never make promises. Keeping a promise is the basic foundation for trust in any relationship.

    I believe we are all guilty of breaking a promise. Jesus said if you are a person of your word, you shouldn't need to strengthen your promise with a vow. Keeping your promises will establish your reputation as a person of your word.

     How many times have we said we would do something, and then not follow through?

  • COLUMN: What's your favorite Bible verse?

     There are many, many wonderful scriptures, but if you push me for one favorite, I suppose I would say Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

    What an outstanding statement. It calls for faith and trust on our part, and then we see that God enters into a covenant with us.

  • Love: More than words

     Love is more than words. It is courageous and a serving action. When another person consistently pays attention to our words, feelings and needs, we often develop and express a sense of love for that person.  

  • The Holy Spirit gives four reasons to shout

     We have read in church history about the Holy Spirit being so powerful and irresistible that he caused a Pentecost, or revival to break out. Worshippers were “slain in the spirit.” There was jumping, jerking and shaking of the body, while voices were raised in praise to God.

  • God is always watching you come and go

    As a child I was taught the scriptures. You could say my upbringing consisted of going to church. I lived a very sheltered life.  

    I’m so grateful to my parents that God was the main priority in our home. That is why I believe parents should teach their children in the ways of the Lord and do their best to live what they teach.

    I always knew God was watching everything I did, and hearing every word I spoke.  I was born again at the age of 11.

    “God carefully watches the goings on of all mankind.” (Job 34:21).

  • Find hope amid hopelessness

    Several years ago a U.S. Navy submarine sank off the coast of Massachusetts in a terrible storm. Rescue teams tried to rescue the trapped crew. Communication with the trapped crew was with dots and dashes of the Morse Code. After much effort to rescue the men inside the vessel the last message received from them was, “Is there any hope?”
