Faith will keep us marching forward

The Israelites were instructed to march once around Jericho for six days and seven times around on the seventh day. Then they were to shout and the city walls would fall. Some of the Israelites probably were questioning God in their minds and, at the same time, becoming tired and weary. I can't help but think that some may have been a little excited about what the outcome would be. Either way, they obeyed God and shouted out in faith and experienced God's miraculous intervention as they conquered Jericho. The walls fell as God had promised (Joshua 6 ...

New gender-neutral Bible draws critics

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In the old translation of the world's most popular Bible, John the Evangelist declares: "If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar."

Be content, thankful for what you have

In the book of 1 Timothy, we are told that if we have food and clothes, we need to be content. This idea is far from "the American dream," in which we strive to have all our wants as well as our needs met. For most of us to be satisfied we even dictate what kind of food we eat and what brand of clothes we wear.

Spiritual growth is in His hands

It is not yet officially spring, but we can see the signs. Flowers and trees are budding. Grass is greening up. And some of us have started to plant a few things in the garden. I have planted broccoli, onions, cabbage and potatoes. To date, everything looks good, except I have yet to see any evidence of potatoes.

Seek memories to bring God closer

Memories are an important part of life. Most people can remember their first ride on a bicycle, their first job or how it felt to drive for the first time with a license. There are memories of those who have passed away, stories they told, things they did.

Lent is a time of prayer, fasting

This week marks the beginning of the Lenten period. Lent is a 40-day span before Easter that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, which is the day before Easter.

Elijah said to them, "I am the only one of the Lord's prophets left, but Baal has four hundred and fifty prophets. Get two bulls for us.

Changing a region one soul at a time

"They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he ...
