Cummings and what Jesus says about cover ups… – Christian Article

Have you ever tried to cover up – to shift the blame, to wriggle your way out – when someone discovers you’ve done something wrong? Well, if you were ever a five year old then the answer to that question is YES! We all have. But, as we grow up, we discover that it’s always better in the end to own up to our mistakes and take the rap. Cover ups have a tendency to lead to more and more…

Our backyard is terraced, so when we went to the second layer he started to cry.

Knocking on Heaven’s Door | Thoughts about God by Allan Mitchell – Christian Article

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”  Luke 11:9-10 Do you believe God answers prayer? For many Christ-followers, this question produces anxiety because they feel that Heaven’s response is sometimes uncertain. That can evoke searching, serious questions. If I…

Has Flattening the Curve Flattened You? – Christian Article

We all want to do our part to be responsible citizens and do what we can to flatten the curve during this world wide pandemic. We have willingly distanced and washed our hands.

Comments get voiced that reveal discouragement,  and even hopelessness for tomorrow. We question how to get through to the other…

“He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm“. Mark 4:39 As our boat pulled away from Tiberius headed for Capernaum on the North end of the Sea of Galilee, it was a clear, calm and sunny way.

Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray Team Up to Look at Jesus – Christian Article

Review: Seeing Jesus from The East: A Fresh Look at History’s Most Influential Person by Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray (Zondervan, 2020) One of the challenges when multiple authors combine to cover a particular topic — especially when the individual chapters were not written collaboratively — is that that there is often nothing which unifies the book as a whole. When I started reading Seeing Jesus From the East, I resigned myself to reading it as a collection of nine…

First Shall be Last, Last Shall be First, Jesus – Christian Article

Tweet What does Jesus mean by saying, “The last shall be first and the first shall be last ?” Children of Promise During Jesus’ earthly ministry, the children of promise, or the children of Abraham, already considered themselves part of the coming kingdom. The Jews thought it was by Abraham that they would be saved, being the “children of promise” (Rom 9:8), and the Apostle Paul even acknowledges them as “brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise” (Gal 4:28), but…

Why we struggle to believe who Jesus is… – Christian Article

There’s a wonderful section in Luke’s gospel where Jesus is on the road with his disciples from Galilee to Jerusalem. And Jesus takes the opportunity to do a lot of teaching though parables and stories. So that his disciples understand who he is and what the Kingdom of God is and how they can help to bring in this kingdom. Just before they arrive at Jerusalem – where Jesus knows he will be arrested and executed – Jesus tells his…

Love Much – Liz Petruzzi – Christian Article

Jesus said to the woman, “Because you believed, you are saved from your sins. Go in peace.” –Luke 7:50 It was an invitation of public statement. A Pharisee, respected religious leader, asked Jesus to eat with him so He went. It wasn’t really to honor Jesus. There was an agenda – the Bible doesn’t say but when I read the story, it becomes apparent the Pharisee wasn’t about knowing Jesus. He didn’t want to sit at the Master’s feet. He…

Gary Habermas: Easily the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was – Christian Article

  Very early, I realized that if Jesus was raised from the dead in time-space history, then this would easily be the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was. But at that time, I knew neither the evidence for the resurrection nor any strong reasons for concluding that Jesus thought of himself as Deity. Only years later, after 18 books on this subject along with debates and dialogues with some of the brightest minds around, did I…

The Problem with Unresolved Guilt – Christian Article

What kind of person does unresolved guilt create? An anxious one, forever hiding, running, denying, pretending. As one man admitted, “I was always living a lie for fear someone might see me for who I really was and think less of me.  I hid behind my super spirituality but this lie was exhausting and anxiety producing.” Unresolved guilt will turn you into a miserable, weary, angry, fretful mess.  In a psalm David wrote after his affair with Bathsheba, the kind said, “When…

Angela Watkins Rivers: He has Risen – Luke 24:1-12 – Christian Article

The women brought spices to the tomb as we would bring flowers – as a sign of love and respect. Ordinarily a body was embalmed at burial and not a day and a half later, but Jesus died only a few hours before sun down on Friday. When the Sabbath began. By the time Joseph had received Pilate’s permission to take the body and had put it in his tomb, there was longer time for embalming. The women went home…
