God’s Good News!

When you have good news, whom do you share it with? Family, friends, co-workers and, in some cases, church members? Who were told about the soon birth of the Messiah? The people of Nazareth, the city Joseph and Mary were from? No. As far as their community was concerned Joseph was the father. The religious …

The Face of Jesus

I remember how I felt when I gazed down into the little face of my newborn son over 13 years ago. No words can accurately describe the love which stirred inside me. I think of how Mary and wonder how she felt when she looked upon the face of Jesus. Did she see the face …

Fear and Wisdom

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom - Psalm 111:10 What does it mean to "fear" the Lord? Does it mean to be terrified of Him? No. It means to be in reverence of Him (to have and show the utmost respect) and who wouldn't be once they come to know Him? The psalmist actually gives us some …

We Cannot Keep Silent

“For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20, NKJV). When you have good news, do you keep it to yourself or are you just bursting to share it with others? It's the same thing when it comes to the Gospel. We are to tell others about what we have …

Good News, Finally

"I have good news for you, Kira. You're pregnant." Kira sat there looking stunned. Tears welled in her eyes. Finally, she had heard the words she had always longed to hear. Finally, God had answered her prayers. She couldn't wait to tell Joel the exciting news. "Wow," was all she could say at the moment. …

God is not a Man that He should lie. Jesus promised that He will come again and He will." "If that is true, why …

All Things to All People

"If the Bible were a wine, it would be Chardonnay." Her eyebrows rose. "Chardonnay?" "Yes, the Chardonnay of Truth," he said as he raised the glass and took a sip. "Why Chardonnay?" she asked. "Like Chardonnay, the Bible can be all things to all people. It can be a source of hope for some, comfort …

Misguided Service

I was reading my Sabbath school quarterly on my phone one afternoon and there was a section which talked about misguided service.  Many of us tend to let our service for Jesus getin the way of our relationship with Him.  We are so busy feeding people, ministering to them, witnessing to them that we don't …

God Takes Care of His People

Whenever one of us is in trouble, God intercedes.  He takes care of us.  The psalmist testifies, "Who will protect me from the wicked?  Who will stand up for me against evildoers?  Unless the Lord had helped me, I would soon have died.  I cried out, 'I'm slipping!' and Your unfailing love, O Lord supported …

Rejoice!

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay - Matthew 28:6 This morning I read three Gospel accounts of the resurrection of Jesus. The empty tomb meant that Jesus had risen as He had said He would. We can always trust in His Word and …
