Why are you waiting?

Today's article is directed toward people who are not Christian. God is calling through the good news of Jesus of Nazareth to accept the gift of salvation. Therefore, I am inviting you to come to a Christian church to accept Jesus as your lord and savior. I really do pray that you will go to any of the more than 200 Christian churches in Liberty County. I know you would be welcome at any of them.

We can learn from others' mistakes

Paul wrote, "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope" (Rom. 15:4). There is much to be learned by the mistakes of others. Seeing what others have done and the consequences of their actions ought to lead us to want to be as faithful as possible to God.

Choose to do things God's way

Choose, on this day, who you will serve. Choose to become who God is through Jesus Christ. Many are called but few are chosen. God has lain before man life, death, blessings and curses. It is our choice to listen to and obey God's word. We choose to be chosen through our obedience and willingness to do what the Father tells us to do.

Be careful with your words

Mom always said, "Think before you speak." Dad used to say, "Son, you don't have to say everything you think." And in spite of all of that good advice, I have said more dumb things that I care to remember.

Passover: An ancient and modern celebration

In several weeks, the Jewish community from around the world will celebrate the commencement of Passover, one of the oldest of the Jewish festivals. The celebration is held to honor God and remember His deliverance of the Israelites from the Egyptian pharaoh after 400 years of slavery. Pharaoh refused to free the Israelites, and God sent ten plagues to humble the Egyptians. The term “Passover” derives from the last plague, the night the destroying angel “passed over” all the doors that had been coated with lamb’s blood, thereby protecting the first-born sons inside.
