The word church along with its plural form churches is found more than 100 times in the New Testament, and every time excepting 1, in Acts 19:37, it comes from the same Greek word, Ekklesia, which means “a calling out”. It can apply to a meeting or congregation, but it is not a denomination or […]

Christmas Light

Christmas Light

The coming of Jesus into the world was the full manifestation of God’s love for us, and the introduction of light and life into a world filled with darkness and death, insomuch that “in Him is no darkness at all” 1 John 1:5. Light surrounded His birth; it was in the darkness of night that […]

Three Things God Desires For Us

The Beauty Of The Flowers

The Beauty Of The Flowers

An old song says, “Give me the roses while I live, trying to cheer me on; useless the flowers that you give after the soul is gone.” As we walk the “road of life” we are given the opportunity to be as a sweet perfume emanating the fragrance of Christ, and like the flowers that […]

2 Corinthians 13:11 says we should become complete (in Christ), experience (His) comfort, be like-minded with other believers, and live in peace, and concludes with the promise that “the God of love and peace will be with you.” It was in John 14:23 that Jesus made the statement that those who love Him and keep […]

God’s Love Revealed Through His Word

God’s love is declared to us in one of the most classic verses in the Bible, John 3:16, which says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” Love is very costly; love sacrifices everything for its object. God’s love for us is a sacrificial love that caused Him to […]
