A Church Lady Becomes a Christian

The things I did polluted the good I was doing.

A book¹ I once read quoted this verse, “Those who believe in the Son of God have a testimony of God in them.”² Our testimonies or stories are unique. God wants us to be intentional about sharing them. Mine is about how a church lady became a Christian. This may sound a bit backwards. At the same time, you may relate.

My Conviction on Marriage

I have decided to follow Jesus and speak up!

I have a sincere conviction that marriage is a covenant agreement between a man and a woman. This conviction is based on the Bible. I believe the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible and authoritative Word.

A Broken Window

When it was my turn I didn’t aim high enough

When the weather got warm the kids in my neighborhood used to play Ante Over. We would say “Annie-Annie Over” then throw a ball over the house. We used different balls but found a baseball worked the best because throwing over the house was quite a ways over.

God So Loved the World

A Beautiful Song!

God So Loved the World.
God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoso believeth, believeth in Him
should not perish, should not perish
but have everlasting life.

American Heritage | What is it?

A culture that cannot save

Before continuing on I would like to share what I learned from my readers. Last week’s post was whether America, in the true sense of the word, was ever a Christian nation. I concluded it was not.

You Matter to God

Your Father Dearly Loves You!

In my distress I send up prayers to God. When God answers my little, inadequate prayers I am always amazed. Compared to the grand scheme of things, my prayers are trivial and trite. God surely has more important things to do.

Untouched Hearts

More Sundays when I was a kid

On Sundays when I was kid, I would dress up in my Sunday best, go to church, sing praises to God, hear a great sermon and go home to a big Sunday dinner. When I grew up I continued the same practice. Plus I read the Bible, attended Bible study and sang in the choir.

In the Fullness of Time

More Sundays when I was a kid

When the fullness of time came,
God sent forth His Son,
born of a woman,
born under the Law,
so that He might redeem those
who were under the Law,
that we might receive
the adoption as sons.
Galatians 4:5 NASB

Who is on the Lord’s Side?

The enemy of our souls wants us busy doing good things

When are you going to make Jesus’ last command your first priority? This question came from a former pastor.¹ After 30 years I still find it challenging. The following is the last command Jesus gave to the disciples:

The Ultimate Hope

Humans are “hardwired” to seek something greater

Dear Friend — In a word our ultimate hope is Jesus. Maybe you don’t know Jesus, personally. Maybe you wonder why He is considered the ultimate hope, above all others. Or perhaps you do know Jesus and in your Continue reading “The Ultimate Hope”

Recently, there was an article in Christianity Today by the author of the book Gay Girl, Good God. (Jackie Hill Perry) After reading the article it is safe to say God saved Jackie out of the LGBT community. However, Continue reading “Has God stopped using us?”
