In Bright Moments & In Trouble

Unless we form the habit of going to the Bible in bright moments as well as in trouble, we cannot fully respond to its consolations because we lack equilibrium between light and darkness.

Accurately Handling the Word of Truth

What is important? If you have a personal relationship with Christ, you have a wonderful blessing in this life and that is to get to know Jesus better and share Him with others! We get to know the person of Christ through the study of His Word. We get to know the character of God through the study of His Word.

Bible Study.  So how do we go about studying the Word of God so that we may handle it accurately? First, while it maybe obvious, we must take the time to read the Word of God. Watch Dr. Woodrow Kroll as he speaks about What's the Best Way to Study the Bible?

Are you willing to settle? When you come across a passage of Scripture that seems baffling to you or appears to conflict with another passage of Scripture, do you investigate further or do you settle? It is important that we not settle but that we 'contend' for the Word and love God "with all of our heart(s), soul(s) and mind(s)." Some resources you can use for this purpose are Biblical Commentaries some of which you can access for free on BibleGateway.com.

Let Your Study in the Word of God 
Increase your Love for God.

Common Ground: The Road Less Traveled

The Presence of God. Ruth and Naomi found themselves in very trying circumstances after each suffered the loss of a husband and the inescapable grief that accompanies death. Scripture gives us a snapshot into their lives and we get a glimpse of the strong bond of friendship that took place between Ruth and Naomi. Was it the deep sense ofgrief that brought these two women together in a way they had never experienced before? Perhaps these women were drawn to each other because they knew they were “alone” in the world. More importantly, the presence of God is evident by Ruth's response to her mother-in-law. Ruth reminds us and reminded Naomi of God's presence.
The presence of God is the bond that unites our hearts as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Mutual Commitment. Naomi urged Ruth to go home to her mother in Moab hoping that Ruth would find another husband. Ruth refused to leave Naomi; she was committed to Naomi and committed to serving Nao…

The Hope of Christmas ~ The Heart of God

Behold, The virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name "Immanuel," which translated means,  "God With Us."  Matthew 1:23
God With Us. God is not far away from us but with us, desiring to be close, so close that He sent His Son in the form of a man to be "with us."  An act of humility and an act of love directly from the God of the universe. We did not beg for His attention nor did we attempt to ingratiate ourselves into His good graces. God initiated contact with us, with all of the human race. (Philippians 2:8) He entered the sinful world we chose to be part of without reservation, knowing His entrance into this world, would inevitably mean suffering. The God of the universe, perfect in every way, entered this world willingly, knowing He would suffer greatly for me and for you.

Close Calls

For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the Lord our God whenever we call on Him? Deuteronomy 4:7
Sound of the fury or two terriers. There was a time when we had two terriers who were not always fond of each other. Though they were small, they were feisty. I was walking through the kitchen one day when the one terrier upon seeing the other, decided that this was her time to shine and leave her mark. The pearly whites of her teeth began to gleam as she lifted her lip in utter disdain and latched on to her "companion" and would not let go. The usual verbal threats masked in the growling and snarling were not part of this fight; however, the sheer determination to defeat the opponent and win were certain. To say that I was concerned was an understatement. After quite a while of trying to pry the dogs apart and loosen the clenched teeth without success, I finally blurted out, "Jesus, help us!" It was at this exact moment that the one dog release…
