following Christ

There is a question that has been asked for generations, from young and old, ‘How do you know? You say this is the way it goes, but how do you know?’ Some will tell you that the answer to the question is this…but how do they know? Even the jury needs to know for sure …

Hands Full of Clay…May 3rd

how deep the father's love

Have you ever watched a child with a fresh ball of Play-Doh? They’ll squish it in their fingers, roll it into logs and pat it into pancakes. For hours they’ll create shapes and mold images from their imagination. Perhaps it’s no wonder that we are creative from such an early age since we’ve been molded by our …

Mary’s Song…Luke 1

Mary's song

Do we realize how powerful our words can be? We hear the saying a lot, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me…” But in all honesty, that is not true, and I speak from experience. The words that we speak on a daily basis can either bring someone’s spirit …

Can a Christian Be a Thinking Person?…Oct. 19th

Thinking mind

It was written in 1929 by Ernest Hemingway in the novel, A Farewell to Arms. A simple sentence that haunts mankind, “All thinking men are atheists.” The secular world would have you believe that faith in God is weakness and scientific ignorance.  In a world that speaks with disdain toward God and elation toward self, …

In the last book of the Old Testament, Malachi the prophet addresses sin in the priesthood. In their sacrifices, they were offering up ‘defiled food.’ By law, a pure animal was required, but instead they were giving God the blind, the sick and the lame. Their sacrifices were useless (vs 10). But what about us …

Spiritual Understanding in a Material World

A recent email from one of our ministers at Waterview church of Christ caught my eye and I felt it appropriate to share it with you. Consider your ‘faith in Christ,’ what exactly does that mean? Is your faith something you can hold on to? By definition, the word faith means; “Belief that does not …

Tax Relief

tax forms

What a great feeling we have when we finally fulfill our civic duty and file our annual income taxes. Is this a great time of year or what? Maybe not so much, but don’t forget Romans 13:7; “Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear …

Mary Did You Know?

Few Christmas songs have been written in the last decade that compare with this stirring, poetic masterpiece from the pen of Mark Lowry.  Written as though interviewing Mary, the mother of Jesus, Mark took a very unique perspective in creating this popular Christmas song.  As if he were the reporter writing a story on Jesus, …
