  • Ascension 2016

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on May 9, 2016
     | 1,904 views

    The description of the ascension of Jesus to heaven is an interesting one. It shows us how consumed we may be with the world and its values instead of being consumed with the Kingdom of God and the mission which Jesus gave to us.

    This coming Thursday is the day that some churches celebrate as Ascension Day because we know that Jesus appeared among His disciples for forty days after His resurrection and then He ascended into heaven. Normally we would celebrate the ascension of Jesus into heaven on the Sunday after ...read more

    Successful Christians produce fruit by staying connected...abiding in Jesus.

    I gleaned this from a book by RC Sproul by the same title "12 Promises Christians struggle with". The question is Do we believe God or Not?

    He Overcame John 16:33ff One of the main reasons we have a problems accepting the promises of God is SIN. Sin comes so naturally to us that our default position is not to believe God. Adam and Eve failed to believe God, when the Father of lies told them “You will surely not die, ...read more

    This life is nothing like a fairy tale where we live happily ever after. Life is a constant challenge, and we fare better at it if we embrace some realistic realizations, some of which seem slightly cynical and ironic.

The dictionary defines a cynic as, “a person who believes that people are motivated purely by self-interest rather than acting for honorable or unselfish reasons.” 2.
