What would it take for us to truly believe?

Post Image

When the celebration of incarnation and the holy week come around, I cannot help but wonder what the general population thinks about the spiritual significance of these events. I realize that Christians are more involved with these holidays because of their personal connection with Jesus Christ, but we must also admit there are many different […]

Billy Graham: An ordinary man with an extraordinary mission

Post Image

 Like many of you, I’m very sad about Billy Graham passing away. Those who are younger will probably not have the familiar connection with him like some of us older folks have, but nonetheless, I’m sure his books and recordings will continue having a beneficial impact on future generations.

Forgive yourself instead of weeping over lost chances

Post Image

Someone said, “Our lives are defined by opportunities, including the ones we miss. Let us not weep over chances we have missed, but rather for the ones we did not take.” When I look back over my life, I can see where I’ve made plenty of mistakes and I’ve missed out on some wonderful opportunities.

Post Image

It’s hard to believe that 2017 is history. We have many things to be thankful for along with events and situations that brought sorrow, pain and disappointment. Forest Gump’s mom said, “life is like a box of chocolates” as we never know what we are going to get. We are not only unaware of what […]

A brand-new year is here, and I am excited to see what the Lord has for us! Keeping Christ at the center of our thoughts takes a great deal of discipline and determination, but so does everything else we really care about. It comes down to how serious we are about knowing God and how […]

Let every heart prepare Him room

Post Image

The author of this story is unknown and has been told by many people throughout the years. The gentleman whom I’m going to introduce was not a Scrooge, but a kind, decent man and generous to his family and upright in his dealings with other people. He just could not understand how or why Jesus […]
