Back to the basics

On the first day of the Green Bay Packers football team training camp in 1961, the team arrived to start a brand-new season after losing the championship the year before. Their famous coach, Vince Lombardi, shocked the team as he started with the most elemental statement. “Gentlemen,” he said, holding a pigskin in his right hand, [...]

Great joy and much hope

A child sleeping in an obscure manger in Bethlehem was actually a king in disguise.  And this king, our king, now rules both in heaven and in our lives here on earth. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord this Christmas season, may the radiance of Christ fill your heart, may his love warm your family, [...]

The Bible is God’s personal love letter to us. From it, He speaks to us, directs us and molds us for His purposes and plans. In every generation, the Bible has been viewed as a source to understand the world we live in and the reason for our existence. True followers of Jesus read the [...]

Giving up our right to understand

Jesus once said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you…Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27). Peace is the result of trusting God completely. The Bible also tells us that God’s peace surpasses human comprehension (Phil. 4:7). When we give up our right to [...]

God’s Word never changes.

God’s Word never changes. However, the area in which we need guidance may not be specifically addressed in Scripture. For example, we may need to know the answers to some of the following questions: What is the Lord’s plan for my career? Whom should I marry? Do I need to consider further training? Where should [...]
