9 Things that won’t get you to Heaven

Christianity is confusing sometimes. The message is often convoluted or contradictory. One church says this. Another says that. It causes a lack of assurance in God and His word. It creates inner conflict about what is right. I remember listening to a popular evangelist who invited people to come to Jesus just as you are.Continue reading “9 Things that won’t get you to Heaven”

Then What?

The older you get the faster life seems to go. Even if you live to be a hundred, that’s a blink in comparison to eternity. Years ago I listened to a preacher tell a story about a conversation he had with a high school student. He started by asking the young man what he wasContinue reading “Then What?”

How are You Spending your Time?

I remember walking with a friend at a local park on a beautiful spring day.  A man on a motorcycle rode by us on the entrance road. He promptly made a U-turn and exited the park.

The Release of a Murderer

Barabbas sat in prison. He was notorious for rebellion and murder in the city of Jerusalem (Luke 23:25). He waited for the day of his crucifixion for his crimes. His sentence was just.

When they turned on the water, “a once quiet house suddenly seemed alive”. He said, “It amazed me that the house could transformContinue reading “Water is Life!”

How do You Survive a Snakebite?

Few people like snakes. I don’t. So no wonder when God had enough of Israel’s constant complaining He sent serpents among them. They had grumbled about many things in their journey in the wilderness. They had failed to trust God. Now finally the Lord had reached His limitations with their complaining. He sent fiery serpentsContinue reading “How do You Survive a Snakebite?”

Once a Child; Always a Child?

I often misunderstood the Bible when I failed to distinguish between ‘relationship’ and ‘fellowship’. This can lead to some huge misunderstandings which result in the way you live. If you are a Christian and live in the fear of God’s punishment, you may be making the same error. A relationship with God is established theContinue reading “Once a Child; Always a Child?”
