How to Know God

It is such a great privilege to be able to personally know Almighty God. Just to think that God, the creator and ruler of everything even desires to have a personal relationship with us is amazing! What better relationship could we possibly find than the one He offers us? There is no better offer! Knowing …

Stop and Think!

I sometimes wonder if many people even stop and think about what they are reading when (if) they read the Bible. The entire Word of God is filled with important lessons, warnings, and yes – commandments. Take for example these verses: “Doing wrong is like a joke to a fool, but wisdom is pleasure to …

Peer Pressure

Over the course of most people’s lives, they make a LOT of choices and decisions due to peer pressure. They are afraid of what others might think about them or do if they don’t make the choice everyone else wants them to make. Sadly, if we look back at our lives, we can all think …

No Parking

I saw a video online recently that a building owner in downtown Dallas had posted. The owner had an old building in the downtown area with an alley behind it where there were a few parking spaces that were reserved for its customers and employees. The building was located just a block or two away …

Repentance

Too often in today’s world, people preach salvation without repentance. They argue that all we need to do is believe in Jesus, and forget that part of believing in Him leads us to repent of our sins and seek Him as our Saviour. True repentance involves a change of heart, it inevitably results in a …

Consuming Passion

I watched an American Pickers show on Amazon the other day. This guy had hundreds of motorcycles in over 3 different building, and thousands of spare parts and other items. He wouldn’t hardly part with anything, and he said “Motorcycles have always been my consuming passion in life!” This guy had spent thousands of dollars …

Amazing Grace!

The hymn Amazing Grace was written in 1779 by John Newton, who after years of living a wicked life found God’s grace and became a beliver in Jesus Christ. The first line of the old hymn goes like this “Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, That sav’d a wretch like me!”  John Newton knew how …

Fear God

The Bible mentions fearing God at least 300 times in different ways, such as “Fear the Lord” and “Fear God”.  So, does that mean that we are to be afraid of Him, like we would be afraid of a ferocious tiger running toward us?  Or does that mean that we just respect Him for Who He is? Let’s …

Priorities

Have you ever noticed that when you go into a grocery store, most of the items displayed around the cash register and on tables in the front are candy, pastries, donuts, etc.?  Now, there isn’t necessarily anything wrong with eating these things as long as they are not our main item of consumption.  However, if …

He’s Got It

During a long flight on a stormy night, an airplane encountered a lot of turbulance, lightning strikes, and was bouncing around in the sky.  All of the passengers were terrified.  They hung on to the seats, stared out the window at the storm around them, and some even cried.  However, there was one young lady …

Affections

I was watching an episode of American Pickers on the internet recently. One of the pickers found an old motorcycle sitting in the corner of a large building. The motorcycle was covered in dust and halfway hidden behind a lot of other junk. When he asked the owner if he would sell it, the owner …
