  • Time

    The older I get, the more I realize how quickly time passes by. There is never enough time in a day. Some days we wish would slow down to enjoy them more and other days we wish would fly by so that the suffering may pass by more quickly. Some past things we wish we could forget and some future things we wish we could know. Time matters and God has a lot to say about it!

    “yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (James 4:14)

  • God Bless Mothers

    This Sunday is a very important day in the life of our nation.  Mother’s Day was born in 1876 in a small Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia, when the nation was still mourning their Civil War dead. 

    Mrs. Anna Reeves Jarvis was teaching a Memorial Day lesson in her church.  She thought of mothers who had lost their sons in the war and prayed that one day there would be a “memorial” day for mothers.

  • A Faith That Destroys Walls

    On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed one of the most memorable statements of the 20th Century. President Reagan declared, “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberation. Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” This historic charge aided in the destruction of the Berlin Wall that occurred in November 1989.

  • The Devil at Work

    Back in the eternal age before the world began, God lived in heaven with all the angels around Him.  Satan was the highest angel, but his high position made him proud and he rebelled against God. 

    Pride cannot stand before God so he lost his high position and was cast out of heaven. Since being expelled he has been trying to defeat the purpose and work of God in every way he can.  He knows he can’t get at God directly so he attacks man, God’s creature.

  • How do you see Jesus

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    The work of Christ on the cross demands a response from individuals. Either one receives the message of the gospel authentically, receives the message in vain, or does nothing more than deny responsibility to receiving the gospel. Unfortunately, the pressures of the world often outweigh the call of the Lord to respond to His grace.

  • Weeping - With or Over?

    There are many beautiful and awe inspiring mountains ... the alps and the rockies among them.  One mountain we recently thought about leading up to Easter was the Mt. of Olives near Jerusalem.  When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, Luke 19:41 tells us, “And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it.”

  • Without Easter

    The average American, when asked about Easter, thinks about eggs, candy, bunnies, and decorations. Although there is nothing wrong with such traditions, sometimes we may miss the main point of the celebration. Easter is far more important than we realize. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if Easter Sunday never happened?

    What is the true meaning of Easter? First of all, we must understand the true meaning of Easter. Easter is a celebration of Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross in order to provide a way of salvation through the forgiving of sin.
