Faith Walk: Sowing and Reaping

God’s laws are immutable. They are not like the laws of our land. No governing body can change them. They cannot be “updated” or “improved.” When God has declared them they are forever unchangeable. One such law is the declaration of sowing and reaping. God’s word says, “Whatever one sows,...

Yeshua the Messiah – the Same Yesterday, Today and Forever

Philip found Natan’el and told him, “We’ve found the one that Moshe [Moses] wrote about in the Torah, also the Prophets — it’s Yeshua Ben-Yosef from Natzeret!” [John 1:45] The “Torah [Law] and the Prophets” was a title for the Old Testament before the New Testament was written. Philip understood...

Benefits of Being a Kingdom Company Part Three – Closer Relationship

The world is filled with marketplace Christians who are content with a shallow Christian presence in their business, afraid of the consequences of a more visible, deeper approach. On the other hand, almost all of us feel the nudging to be more visible and vocal with our Christianity in the...

You are already blessed!

We learn to walk in God’s will when we learn to see the blessings that God has given us and to be more thankful. ~ Heather Bixler. You are already blessed! How do I know that? Because God said so. Has already blessed us [provided us] with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. When? “Before the foundation of the world!” Before Genesis, before you were created, He had already accumulated all the blessings and benefits that He could provide to His children. He chose to do that, just as He chose you to be the recipient of His amazing goodness. Because God from the beginning chose you … (2 Thessalonians 2:13).

Offerings of Hope

As a child Thanksgiving was probably my least favorite holiday. It ranked behind Christmas, Halloween, and Easter because there were no presents or candy. It meant going to a relative’s house that I only saw once a year. It meant having to watch the Dallas Cowboys on TV. Like many things, I just didn’t get it. But Thanksgiving was not about me or what I received or did not receive.

Confessions of a “Good Christian Girl”—Countering Toxic Christianity

“Confessions of a good Christian girl”—these words came to mind when I sat with my songwriter friend Evangeline during our one-on-one catch-up. Over dinner, she shared the ups and downs she’s had in ministry, and it reminded me of my own experiences. It was refreshing to relate with each other as we traded stories of how we often started out with good intentions but would somehow end up burned out.

Be Watchful

Last Sunday of the Church Year (Trinity 27) After Jesus ascended into heaven, and Jesus’ disciples were still gazing into the sky where he departed, two angels appeared and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11) And from that moment on, the holy Christian Church on earth has been waiting with great anticipation for the return of our Lord Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead. This will be a joyful event. We will love his appearing (2 Tim. 4:8). He comes with redemption (Luke 21:28). He does not come to deal with us according to our sins, but to save those who eagerly wait for him (Hebrews 9:28).

Jesus Is Changing My Life

21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said.

Is this now the end of end times?

I think all of us Christian conservative believers now realize we've just about reached the end of the Biblically prophesied "end times." All worldly signs point to divine intervention in the separation of the wheat from the tares (Matthew 13:30) and God preparing to close the door of the ark on the world of evildoers and all they symbolize and represent.

Desiring God


“Find a piece of paper and something to write with.” With a smirk, my wife complied and braced herself for what might follow. The task was simple: Take ten minutes and write down as many names or descriptors of Christ as we could each recall. After ten minutes, we returned together with our lists. As we shared together, we began to worship as the Jewel of unending generations turned and turned and turned before our eyes of faith. Each name, worth a lifetime’s reflection.


Peter, really a coward before the cross because he denied his Lord, is now standing boldly and answers the critics’ attack of mockery in saying that the believers at Pentecost were drunk on new wine. Acts 2:14-15 states, “But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.”

Thankful for God's special love for children — all children

The Gospel reading in my devotions for Tuesday, November 23, was from Matthew 15:21-29, in which we hear about Jesus healing the daughter of a Canaanite woman in the area of Tyre and Sidon, northwest of the nation of Judea. Jesus’ act of power and mercy for the woman’s daughter did not come without some puzzling conversation, words which may shock us today. But, in the end Jesus praises the woman, and gives her good news. "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." As this account closes we are told the result of Jesus’ words, “And her daughter was healed from that very hour.” (Matthew 15:29) The devotional thought which followed this reading came from Martin Luther, who encouraged other children of God to have faith like this woman, to contend with God in prayer, to trust and act on our Lord’s promises. That is an important reminder. I personally seek to act in such faith.
