A Beautiful Journey - Walking through the Bible in a Year

"As I finished the last chapter of Revelation this morning...I was reminded that my journey through the Bible this year is just like my journey through life as a Christian: There will always be the easy times when I sail through and enjoy being a child of God and then there will be the tough times when it becomes so hard."

Ambassadors of Christ

The church is Christ’s embassy, an oasis where Jesus reigns supreme. Everything we do as a body we do to protect and build up the embassy.

“We are Christ’s ambassadors. God is using us to speak to you: we beg you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, receive the love he offers you—be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20 (TLB)

More than Volunteers - Quiet Time Thoughts

My son and I went downtown to a shelter last month with a bin of winter coats, gloves and hats to pass out. We expected to find a regular group of men and a couple women lingering outside the shelter, where we regularly hand out bars of soap, coats and gloves. This Saturday, there was only one man out in the cold - a regular from the shelter named Richy. I asked him "Where is everybody today?"

Purim - The Upside Down Holiday from the Book of Esther

If you were not aware – this Sunday commemorates a special day on the Jewish Calendar known as Purim! In a world of blizzards, earthquakes, and Tsunami’ s, it’ s always good to reflect on God's promises and protection of his people. This year, March 20-21, 2011, Jews around the world will celebrate two days of joyful activities and reminders of God's faithfulness in preserving their people. For several reasons all disciples, Jewish and Gentile, would do well to recognize and celebrate this popular Jewish holiday.
