  • Laboratory tests play an important role in your health care. One reason lab tests are done is to screen for diseases or risks for developing a specific disease or condition. For example, a leading risk factor for heart disease is having elevated cholesterol levels. It is important to not only know your cholesterol levels, but to understand the results and the factors that can affect the results and what you can do to improve them. Understanding your condition can give you confidence to improve or maintain your current health status. 

  • It’s hard to believe, but flu season is just around the corner. The best way to prevent or lessen the severity of the flu is to get vaccinated every fall. Flu vaccination usually begins in September, or as soon as vaccine becomes available. Last year, a new and different flu virus (called 2009 H1N1) spread worldwide causing the first flu pandemic in over 40 years.

  • As we study the book of Job, we find he is a man singled out by God himself as blameless and upright.

    God allowed Satan to attack Job. In one day, Job lost his family and his wealth. Then Satan afflicted Job with agonizing open sores, but Job remained faithful.

    When three of his friends came to visit, Job told them he wished he had died at birth. They tried to convince him he was being punished because of some hidden sin, but Job was clear there was no hidden sin.

  • God answers prayer, but James says effective praying meets certain conditions.The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results. (James 5:16 NLT)

    The first condition of an effective prayer is a righteous life. Prayer is the privilege of every Christian, but James suggests that there is a correlation between the condition of our lives and the effectiveness of our prayers. We are instructed to pray in Jesus’ name (John 14:13), which means to have an obedient life and a clean heart.
