    Jesus Christ is perfect in so many ways. Peter explains to us how He is the only example we should follow.

    A couple with especially irregular church attendance had been asked by their preacher to host a visiting minister for lunch. The couple obliged and put together a very special meal for the guest preacher. When they all sat down to eat, their little boy, who was accustomed to diving right in, ...read more

    Some Christians seem to have more confidence in the security of their homes than they do the security God has promised. Consider these three areas in which we can rest assured of God’s security.

    What kind of security do you have in your home? Do you have any at all? It might just be something as simple as a dead-bolt lock. Or, maybe you have some of those motion-sensored lights that will turn on automatically if someone walks by it. Or, maybe you have a guard dog. Sometimes those ...read more

    By looking at how Nehemiah was able to keep the Jews’ spirits high while they rebuilt the wall of Jerusalem, we can gain some insight into how we, too, can keep from getting discouraged.

    SCRIPTURE READING: Psalm 46:1-3, 10-11 Have you ever known someone that you would say was an “eternal optimist?” Did they ever drive you crazy? Did you ever think, “Man, can’t you be upset about anything?” There aren’t too many people that you could file under that category. But, in ...read more

    The words we use don’t always have the effect we want. But, unfortunately, there are times when the words we use aren’t intended for noble purposes.

    During the course of his sermon, a preacher wanted to emphasize the brevity of life. He took a long pause, then said, “Every member of this church is going to die.” But, to his ultimate surprise, a man in the back row responded to this statement with a big smile. Well, the evangelist was ...read more

    I want us to look at what happens when God says no. Does that mean that God doesn’t care for us? Does it mean that He’s being cruel? Let’s take a look at a couple different times in scripture when God said no to his children’s prayers.

    WHEN GOD SAYS NO Barbara Kerby has written a humorous reflection about her first experience of driving. Barbara’s father took her to the high school parking lot for driving lessons. For this particular lesson, Barbara’s three-year-old sister rode along in the backseat. While trying to negotiate ...read more

    One of the ESPN channels I really like is ESPN Classic. The entire network is dedicated to showing broadcasts of games that have already been played. And, I really like watching some of those older games that are classic rivalries, or famous players from years ago. But, the best part about it ...read more

    December of 1914, a 67-year-old man watched as his life’s work was being burned to the ground. Adding insult to injury, his property was only insured for $238,000 - far less than the $2 million worth of damage. His twenty-four-year-old son, Charles, said, “My heart ached for him. He was ...read more
