What do we know about Jesus? What does Scripture say? Historical writings by Tacitus and Josephus validate His existence. Historians called the followers of Jesus, Christians. They believed, as we do, Jesus was the Son of God in flesh. http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/jesus-historical-jesus/did-jesus-exist/ As believers, we recognize the Bible as the inspired Word of God.  It is a historic record of the Hebrew/Jewish people’s history with God, the life and teachings of Jesus, and the beginning of the …

The Bible tells us we are aliens and strangers in this world. This is a reminder to all Christians that heaven is our eternal home. The Greek translation for alien is a sojourner, stranger, and foreigner. A foreigner is one who lives in a place without the right of citizenship. Our citizenship is with God and in the heavenly realm. “Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wave …

The Promise of Spring

  Years ago, I lived in Arizona. I never adapted to the climate and I cannot understand the “desert rats” that adore the 118-degree weather. I hated the heat and missed the beauty of tall oak and maple trees. I was born in Michigan and for sixteen years I enjoyed and welcomed each distinct season, especially spring. Arizona seemed to have only two seasons: Summer and winter. And in my mind, the winters were just …

The Bible never explicitly says that worry is sinful, however, we can conclude this based on Scripture. Most worry, or anxiety, is a failure to trust God. The fact that God sent His only son to die for our sins, in order to restore fellowship between Creator and His creation, is proof of His powerful love for mankind. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in …

We Were Like Animals

2/6/2017 I also thought about the human condition–how God proves to people that they are like animals.                     [Ecclesiastes 3:18; NLT] My adventure in prayer last night could be called, “I slept while my spirit meditated.” Several days ago my wife and I had a couple over for supper, and after eating some of the best lasagna I’ve ever put in my mouth, we sat down …

  An archer must pull back his arrow to make it fly. Before releasing the shaft, it should touch the bowman’s face. With proper aim, the arrow will hit its mark. If God is our archer, we then, are His arrows. And even though His quiver if filled beyond our knowing, every shot is carefully planned before it is lovingly released. When positioned in His mighty bow, we will experience the confusion and pain of …

Alone With God

There are several stories in the Bible where God calls one of His chosen into a place of solitude and seclusion. The apostle Paul, who has one of the greatest conversion stories in the Word of God, was led into the desert for three years. During that time the Holy Spirit instructed him in the ways of God. Saul, later known as Paul, had persecuted Christians with near fanaticism until his conversion along the Damascus …

Obstacles

Most of us have had an occasion where an unexpected trial or obstacle has knocked us flat, interrupting everyday plans and routines. And when a stumbling block appears out-of-the-blue, a bucket full of emotions is sure to follow. Since God created us with the capacity to express our true feelings, we should do so. God values honest communication. But once we have vented our frustration, fear, anger, and confusion over the obstacle, we must pause …
