Freedom In Christ

Freedom has different meanings for different people. For the teenager, freedom is represented by that first car. For the prisoner, freedom is the ability to come and go as he pleases. For the American, freedom means living life in any way he chooses. But even within those few examples there might be people who disagree […]

Christmas is one of the most celebrated events in the entire world. There just seems to be something about this holiday that causes people to be in a good mood. You see a side of people during Christmas that you may not normally see. Wherever you go people are festive and cheerful. It really seems […]

The Struggle is Real

Every once in a while I like to write about the topic of discipleship. I don’t do it to badger or belittle anyone, but I simply do it as a reminder to all of us of what it really means to be a Christian. Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the production and lights, […]

The Minor Prophets: Malachi

One of the primary things that we desire as humans is respect. As a matter of fact, a decent human civilization cannot be built without respect for one another. We are seeing this in the news daily. It seems as if people have lost the ability to respect a differing opinion, and it is causing […]

The Minor Prophets: Zechariah

Have you ever wished that you could see the future? I’m not talking about looking through a crystal ball or reading palms, but rather seeing when things were going to happen, how they were going to happen, and what the result of all of that would be. We often become so concerned about the present […]

The Minor Prophets: Haggai

It is so easy to become distracted. Most of us have goals and plans in mind, but it is usually when we begin to focus on those goals that distractions come into view. You know what I mean. You sit down to work on a project, and all of a sudden your favorite tv show […]

The Minor Prophets: Zephaniah

The Day of the Lord. Sounds ominous, doesn’t it? No minor prophet mentions this event more than Zephaniah, and for good reason. Zephaniah prophesied in Jerusalem during a time when the nation of Judah was in rebellion against the Lord. Judgment was delayed, but it was definitely on its way. We know more about Zephaniah […]

The Minor prophets: Habakkuk

Have you ever looked at the world around you and wondered what was going on? More than that, have you ever wondered how God could possibly allow some things to happen? I would dare say that over the last couple years every single one of us have had thoughts like these. If you have then […]

The Minor prophets: nahum

My favorite genre of books or movies is action. There is nothing quite like the intensity of watching an action scene unfold before your eyes. If you are also a fan of the action genre then the book of Nahum is for you. No doubt, the mention of “action” in relation to the Bible is […]

The Minor Prophets: Micah

Rich with information. That is probably the most accurate description for the book of Micah. From the very beginning of the book the prophet gives us plenty of information. He even tells us exactly when he prophesied, which was during the successive reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah in the kingdom of Judah. Each chapter […]
