The Love Not the World Side of Loving the Lord with All Our Heart

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 – It was often easier for the Children of Israel to recognize and fear the Lord than it was for them to remember to love him. Matthew 22:35 – This command of love for God and others will never be demoted. This first commandment is still the first. It supersedes doctrinal differences. It […]

Reading and Living by the Book

Psalm 1:2, Joshua 1:7-9 – What are we thinking about as we go about our days? Do we constantly reflect on Biblical truth and its principles? Many Christian people are in a rut, there is no or little joy in their Christian journey. Could it be that we are “doing it wrong” and have been […]

A Call to be Saints

What is a saint? Are you and I saints? Isaiah 6:1-7 – Even our greatest efforts fall far short of God’s Holy and perfect standard. Deuteronomy 10:12-13 – A summary of God’s will and desire for his people. God expects the same of us today. At times it seems as if those who call themselves […]

After God’s Own Heart

The heart is very important. It is the seat of our thoughts and attentions and attitudes. Above all things, guard your heart. The heart of a man (or a woman) is very important. Our heart makes us who we really are. God knows our hearts. He knows our hearts completely. What God sees in our hearts should matter to us. What kind of heart pleases God? David was described as a “man after God’s own heart.”

The Water of Life

Our bodies need water. Water is a solvent, which means that it dissolves other things, in our body this means that water carries all kinds of things to all parts of our body. A healthy body needs to have a correct balance of water inside and outside of each cell. Our bodies are largely water… we can live without food for a long time, but we can’t live without water.

The Role of a Parent

It is much easier to begin planting and watering when children are younger. Teaching our children is something that begins at a very early age. Every home has to deal with difficult things. How parents respond and how they deal with that can be a real testimony to their children. There is a spiritual battle going on. Each of us are being attacked.

Part of the Kingdom of God

Can you imagine a place where God’s character is the law? Can you imagine the perfection… perfect love, nothing out of place, selfishness is so unheard of that every action is motivated by selfless concern for another, perfect holiness, a sin free place. A place where God’s spirit is the atmosphere. This place of course fits the definition of heaven perfectly.

Thanksgiving 1456 BC

It is good to step back and remember what all God has done for us.

This week during our thanksgiving celebration we are remembering the goodness of God to us. As Christians we have a lot of extra things that we are and can be thankful for. Above all we have Jesus and all that he has done for us. Moses here is leading the children of Israel…
