The Moment of Truth

Today’s post cones from Ian Coate of FreeChristianIllustrations.com

We have been watching athletes run their races in the Olympics Games.  As Christians, we also have a race set before us.

Athletes train for years to prepare for a race. Then, in a matter of seconds, it’s all over, with those many years of preparation condensed to a single moment of truth. If an athlete is victorious, they have proven to self and spectators, the years of effort have not been wasted. Continue reading

Back to School – Lets Boost Their Communication Skills

Communication Skills For Back to School Time

Children today are a lot different from when we grew up. Technological advances have played a major role in how children are spending their time these days. Do you find your children coming home from school to surf the Internet, watch television, play video games, or texting on the cell phone? While these forms of entertainment do have their time and place, we as parents should encourage our children to read a book, do some coloring or write in a journal about their day instead. Technology is a great tool but without the right platform, it can become a passive means of escape. A child’s written; verbal and social skills can suffer greatly as well, if the issue is not addressed.

Facing The Ghost Of Our The Past (Genesis 33)

Jacob faces the ghost of his past (Genesis 32-33)

And Jacob said, “O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac…Please deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I fear him, that he may come and attack me, the mothers with the children. (Genesis 32:9, 11)

Jacob and Esau

After more than 14 years of separation from his hometown, his parents, friends, and quick disappearance from the sight of his angry brother, Jacob was now claiming his freedom for almost two decades of laborious service under Laban’s tricky hands. Nonetheless, because of God’s faithful provision and protection, Jacob was able to rise from rags to riches, from a mere wanderer into a successful leader of a rising generation – the 12 tribes of Israel.Continue reading

Finding Time To Pray

Do You Have Time To Pray?

People use all kind of excuses in order to not pray. Some of the most common excuses are, “I don’t know how to pray”,”How do I know God is really listening?”,”I feel self-conscious when praying”, and ”I just don’t have the time to pray!”. Do any of these sound familiar to you? Prayer plays a vital role in our relationship with the Heavenly Father. When we make excuses not to pray we are telling God He is not important to us.Continue reading

Principles of Productive Life

The Christian life is a productive life

Our life is rooted in the redemptive work of the hands of God through Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
productive life

The Lord then expects fruits from our lives. He wants our life to be productive due to the indwelling presence of His Spirit in us (Galatians 5:22-23) and because of our pledge to serve Him as our God. Yet, because of our lack of discipline and focus, we become barren and stagnant bystanders not only in our relationship and service to God but to others and to our community as well. It is important then to be reminded that as Christians, the Lord called us to be “lights” and “salts” of the earth. In other words, He wants our life to be beneficial; that just as He offered His life for our salvation and blessing we would also dedicate our lives to productive purposes that will glorify Him, bless others, and benefit our society.Continue reading

Beneficial Drugs

Drugs Can Be Both Beneficial or Harmful

Today’s post cones from Ian Coate of FreeChristianIllustrations.com

When we hear the word ‘drugs’, it conjures all sorts of images – probably most of those images are negative.

bd
Drugs get a bad name from the damage caused when misused and abused. However, the primary purpose of drugs is to be beneficial to mankind. In medicine, they are useful in many processes of healing and have relieved a great deal of suffering.
It is ironic, then, that many have benefited from using drugs, while others have destroyed their lives because of them.Continue reading

What is Love?

what is love

Love by description would be to have an intense perception of strong emotions or feelings.

what is love

This explanation is dependent on one’s own feelings, but love as God intended it’s a choice, it’s an action word. It’s certainly not an emotion or feeling which you want to accept or prevent but love is the basis of our way of life as Christian believers as well as the foundation of our human relationships through Christ Jesus.Continue reading

Who Is God?

who is god

Who is God is a question that will produce numerous answers, as God means many things to many people.

who is god

Jesus once asked his disciples that same question that what do people called him, and they were able to tell Him people’s different opinion about His person and ministry. Some called Him Elijah, some called him one of the prophets, and so on, but all of them were wrong.

Jesus was not perturbed by what people outside the circle of His disciples will call Him, after all they have limited access to Him, but he turned and asked His disciples, what they called Him. Peter answered that He is the Messiah Mark 8:29, the son of the living God, to which Jesus answered that it was His father that revealed that to him and not blood and flesh.Continue reading

Forgiveness Why You Need To Forgive

Why We Need to Forgive at All Times

Forgiveness is one of the major conditions for answered prayers, it is so important that it appears in the Lord’s prayer as a condition that we have to meet for us to earn forgiveness from God, but it is unfortunate that as important as forgiveness is many Christians still go about harboring hatred, malice, and unforgiving spirit against others, many just believe that the situation that made them not to forgive others Is different from what the bible is talking about, and that God should understand why they cannot forgive.Continue reading
