Living for Christ

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17 ESV) This passage of Scripture reminds us that all of life as a Christian is to be lived under the authority of Jesus Christ. That means that our […]

The Word of God

The word of God is powerful and effective. It is sufficient to accomplish the will of God. It is effective for the purpose for which it has been sent to us. Do you believe that? 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that the Word of God is not only breathed out by him and is profitable for […]

Faithfulness

And she said, “See, your sister-in- law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in- law. But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you, go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall […]

The Body of Christ

Giving Thanks

November is one of my favorite months of the year. I remember anticipating the first New England snow fall when the warm autumn colors give way to the cool crisp glittering of snowy woodlands. The sledding hills bustled with industrious young people. The ski slopes thrived with their warm rustic lodges serving the best hot […]

God’s Faithfulness

I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O LORD. I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart; I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great […]
