Jesus -your antidote for sadness

Jesus -your antidote for sadness
Are you sad? Have you been sad lately? Do you ever have those days or those times when you just feel sad and you are not sure why? Sadness is a terrible feeling. To be genuinely and really sad is a debilitating thing. It prevents you from thinking straight and it affects your relationships. Jesus ...

Racist? Prejudiced? Christian?

Racist? Prejudiced? Christian?
After writing about pride yesterday, I must surely follow it with prejudice. Jane Austin would be proud. Christians are not immune to prejudice. In fact we are no more immune to any social condition sadly enough. That is because we have not yet cast off the flesh man. If any man is in Christ he ...

Getting your pride under control

Getting your pride under control
Everyone needs a little pride because without self-pride we would simply not care. But we are warned multiple times throughout the Old and New Testaments that pride is a dangerous thing to have. You don’t have to look any further than James 4:6 where we are told that God resists or opposes the proud. I ...

Purity over Lust

Purity over Lust
By the time we reach our teenage years, God made us to be full-blooded, hormone raging teenagers. The urge to become sexually active is very strong. In today’s modern world, people look at you strangely if you are not having sex by 17, rather than the other way. How crazy have things become? The truth is ...

God and Romance

God and Romance
If you do not feel loved, then you need to go and read the book in the Bible called the Song of Solomon or the Song of Songs. This book is a poem that was written by King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived. Solomon also wrote the book of Proverbs, and there is ...

Are you and God friends?

In writing about being friends with God, I came across a piece from Christianitytoday which I thought was worth sharing with you all, under the Title “Eight steps to a better friendship with God”. I have abbreviated it slightly. “Where’s Angela?” I asked. The rest of our family was slumped on the living room couch. ...

Love in many flavors

Love in many flavors
Today I come to the different types of LOVE. There are four different types of love in the Bible that speak of divine love, brotherly love, family love and romantic love. I hope over the next few days to help you discover what love really means, and how you can follow Jesus Christ’s command to ...

Lonely Christians 5

Lonely Christians
When God made the world He saw that everything was good.  When he made man He was pleased and said that it was good. But the only time God looked at His creation and decided He could improve it, was when he saw that Adam was lonely, and he needed a companion. For this reason ...
