Happy Resurrection Day

Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Easter is a very wonderful time of rejoicing for Christians because the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus are fundamental beliefs. The very fact the Christ died as a ransom for our sins gives us reason to reflect and rejoice during this season. However, when we remember that God raised Him from the dead so that we could be saved, we should explode with joy and be exceedingly glad.

Women's retreat chance for praise, fellowship

The idea of getting away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life is always exciting. But spending a few days on St. Simons Island for a Christian retreat is both exciting and inspirational.

Thoughts inspired by Palm Sunday

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. Just to remind you, Palm Sunday celebrates the day that Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem to great fanfare and a wonderful reception. The people lined the streets to welcome the Lord. They threw their coats and palm branches on the ground before Him, providing a sort of "red carpet" for His entrance.

Will you be shielded from the fire?

The other day I was raking my yard and was burning the debris in my usual burn pile. My little granddaughter, who is about a year and a half old, went running towards the fire. I think she was just amazed at the colorful sight and never really got that close. As I watched I noticed her four year old brother coming out of nowhere, standing between her and the fire with his arms open telling her to stay back. For you that are freaking out about now, I was standing close enough to intervene if necessary.

Second part of a look at marriage

To help us in fulfilling your responsibilities as man and wife God has given rules to live by. "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing ...

Commit to putting God first in your life

Is your life too busy? I would imagine that a number of readers would immediately say, "Yes, no doubt." We certainly have a way of filling up the hours in every day, do we not? I recently finished reading a book entitled "Simple Life."

Celebrate true meaning of Easter

What do you think of when you think of Easter? We need to understand that there is a secular celebration as well as a spiritual one. I don't think there is a problem with celebrating both as long as we don't somehow mingle them together. On the secular side we have the Easter bunny, coloring and finding eggs,special decorations and of course candy. On the spiritual side there is of course the celebration of our risen Savior Jesus Christ with special services and events that day and the preceeding week. What we need to understand is that ...

A look at marriage

Marriage is a blessing given to mankind by God. "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for ...

Our children need to know God

I understand this is not the type of article some people like to read. However, when we think about the state of affairs concerning our children, I believe it is necessary. Too many of our children are headed in the wrong direction. I'm grateful for all the children who are on track and doing well, but for those who are falling by the wayside, I think this is good advice.

Spring is time of coming alive

I believe spring is finally here; the temperature is rising and the birds are singing. This is my favorite time of the year mainly because there is this feeling of coming alive. Another reason I like it is because of Easter; where we celebrate a Savior coming alive after He was killed and buried for three days. The significance of this is that He now sits at God the Father's side offering forgiveness and a new life for all who will put their lives in His hands. Jesus Christ died so that those who are depressed, lonely, hurting and ...

The disappearance of dominion thinking in the Christian climate change debate

In the beginning, religious leaders put little energy into biblical teachings about the environment. It was enough to know that God created an earth rich in resources and formed humans in his image to enjoy it.

Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie." It serves as a chilling reminder of the realities of war — a war that remains an afterthought for many Americans who weren't directly involved in the action — and the hurtful feelings many Americans still hold towards Islam.
