Easter is About Love

Easter is About Love Colossians 3:13-14 says “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which bind them all together in perfect unity.” God commands us to forgive others and love them, whether they deserve […]

What Does it Mean When I Say I’m A Christian?

Being a Christian means I carry the name of my Savior Jesus Christ whose birth we celebrate in December. He saved me, but what did He save me from? An eternity without Him. Being a Christian doesn’t mean following a set of rules or rituals. It doesn’t require us to do a certain number of […]

What Were You Thinking?

What Were You Thinking? James 4:7 says “Submit yourselves therefore to God.” Our choices, our words, our activities, our relationships. (I’m still working on all of this.) But for me thoughts are the hardest to surrender to the Lord. The Bible offers help. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is […]

Trusting in God Despite Our Circumstances

Trusting in God Despite the Circumstances Habakkuk 3:17-19 is one of my favorite scriptures. The verses depict the prophet’s faith in the Lord despite his material circumstances. I think it would be interesting to put this into modern day language. Here’s the original. Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

Church Marina Bromley, Marina’s Kitchen Table Living in this area I’ve met many people with their own ideas of where they can go to “meet God” on the Sabbath, whether it’s […]

Protection From the Enemy

The enemy isn’t a topic we Christians like to think about. Including me. I know the forces of darkness are out there somewhere, but I choose to center on God and His unfailing love and power. But sometimes, unfortunately, we encounter the enemy or his demons. At times indirectly—like observing his influence in our world. […]
