Celebrating Palm Sunday 2020

Luke 19:28-40 (JB Phillips Translation) 29-31 Then as he was approaching Bethphage and Bethany, near the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent off two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the village just ahead of you, and there you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet ridden. Untie it…

Courage. It is hard to come by these days. Often, it is mistaken as the absence of fear, but it is actually doing the right thing while being afraid. As a Christian, I often turn to the Bible to help me find inspiration when I feel I lack courage. In no particular order, here are…

How Billy Graham Inspired Me

It was a chilly night in October. Halloween was fast approaching in the year 2002, but that did not stop my church youth group from heading to the Texas Stadium in Dallas-Forth Worth. We had all had a delicious meal on the van ride over and we waited in a seemingly endless line before finally finding…

When Kindness Does Not Disarm

James 1:2-4 – 2 Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing. (HCSB) I once heard a story about a sales associate at a small corner shop.…

Back To The Bible

I was looking for a new book at my local bookstore, as rare as those are becoming, and I came across the section that had Bible. Wow, there are so many choices.  You want a King James Version Bible? How about New King James Version? NIV? ESV? HCSB? Philips? Man, it is not just the…

Christian Inspiration: Grace

I am going to start with the most well known Bible verse in the United States of America.  John 3:16- For God so loved the world that He gave His holy unique Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. This is a perfect example of grace. What is grace,…

Resurrection Sunday 2016: I believe

Some Christians call it Easter and others call it Resurrection Sunday. I personally call it Resurrection Sunday, but I honestly do not care that some folks made it to coincide with spring.  That being said, yes, I do believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, that He lived, He was crucified, dead, and…

10 Scriptures For Faith

Faith. It is standing for something because you know it is right. It is having a belief, sometimes going against popular opinion, because you know it is the right thing. The Bible rates faith among the big three: faith, hope, and love. What does the Bible say about it. Actually, if you are Christians with…

10 Scriptures For Joy

When I am feeling troubled or down, I do not feel like rejoicing. However, the Bible says that the Joy of the Lord is my strength. How does that work? It is not to pretend or be fake, but to find joy in being a Christian, knowing that our life is under God’s protective eye.…

10 Scriptures About Righteousness

What is the definition of righteousness? According to the dictionary, the definition is “the quality of being morally right or justifiable.” Living a moral life is incredibly important and God has mandated humanity to live in an upright righteous manner. How do we do this? It can be hard. Here are 10 Scriptures About Righteousness: If…

10 Scriptures About Forgiveness

When someone lets you down, I find that the Holy Bible has a lot to say about forgiveness. Yes, it is difficult, but it is important to help your own life heal. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ tells us that forgiveness restores the standard of relationship so the unforgiveness does not turn into bitterness.…

Redeeming the Rapture Part 1: Fear and Faith

I touched on Eschatology (the study of the End Times) a little bit in my last last article. With this resurgence of the partial preterist belief (those who believe the End Times have started, slowly), I have also noticed that their dialogue is a little bit condescending and dishonoring toward Futurists (those who believe that…

Now that the world hasn’t ended…

36 “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows — neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son — except the Father only. 37 As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. 38 For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah boarded the…

10 Scriptures About Hope

Hope. It is tough to come by these days. Often, it seems like it out of reach, but it is actually right there, sometimes just within view, but it always present. As a Christian, I often turn to the Bible to help me find inspiration when I feel I lack hope. In no particular order,…
