    He’s Alive!

        Dr. Seamands tells of a Muslim who became a Christian in Africa. “Some of his friends asked him, ‘Why have you become a Christian?’ He answered, ‘Well, its like this. Suppose you were going down the road and suddenly the road forked in two directions, and you didn’t know which way to go, and there at the fork in the road were two men, one dead and one alive--which one would you ask which way to go?’”

        Jesus taught his disciples in parables because these simple illustrations made a lasting impression. So, for instance, when he told this parable:

        “Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hillside and go in search of the stray? In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all.      
        Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.” (Matt. 18:12-14).

        Have you ever noticed that the Hebrew and Greek equivalent of our notion of “I’m sorry I apologize” is nowhere to be found in Scripture? Or have you ever noticed any story in the Bible that features some character or other going to someone and saying “I’m sorry I did that”? That’s because apologizing is meaningless. It changes nothing, it effects nothing and it restores nothing.

    How to get the power turned on

        The organ in a large church wouldn’t work one Sunday morning just before services were to begin. A member of the congregation happened to be an organ repairman, and he immediately went to work on the instrument during opening prayer, finding that if wasn’t plugged in. He quietly passed a note to the organist that read: “After prayer - the power will be on.”

  • Coffee With Christ

        We have been on a long journey studying and reflecting on prayer. I want to now ask a very guarded question, but a question that I think is very legitimate. Can we pray too much? Can we over pray something? I sometimes feel like we may. Now, I am not talking about our everyday quiet-time prayer with the Father, or our weekly corporate prayers to the Father with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Let us dig in a bit.

  • Operation Christmas Child Update

        With just 32 weeks until collection week begins, there have been some changes made by Samaritans Purse.
        Beginning this year two things will not be allowed to be mailed in shoeboxes are: Candy and Toothpaste.
        (This is due to customs. And if just one shoebox in a shipping container has those items above, the whole container (hundreds of shoeboxes) will be refused.) So please do not risk that for the sake of the children and the gospel being sent.
