A New Beginning

Posted 01-03-2019 at 10:14 AM by snowduck

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - A new year is often viewed as a new beginning, and we can think of ourselves as having a new beginning if we have come to Christ. The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Corinthians about 55 a.d. probably when he was in Macedonia, and in 5:17 notice that Paul says "has come," "has gone" and "is here," he never uses the words "might come," might be...

Gone Fishing

Posted 09-05-2018 at 09:08 AM by snowduck

Matthew 4:19 -“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” - When Christ picked out his disciples he chose a few who were fisherman, and made a simple analogy about them. He told them that they would be sent out to fish for people. That was a good analogy because that is basically what the people who spread the gospel do. When someone is "caught" by Christ it simply means that they accept him as their only lord and savior and will obey his commands....

Doing Good

Posted 08-08-2018 at 10:40 AM by snowduck

Galatians 6:10 -Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.- It's common for us to do good for people we know and help them if we can, and we may even help and do good for the occasional stranger. We are told here that when we have the opportunity we should do good to everyone. But how often (myself included) have we ignored someone who needed good or help because we were pressed for time or it wasn't our problem or...

The List (Reposted from 2010)

Posted 07-02-2018 at 08:32 AM by snowduck

1 Timothy 1:15 - This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" - and I am the worst of them! This Bible verse makes me think of a list that contains the names of everyone (sinful man) who will live, now lives, or has ever lived on the earth, and mine is the very first name on the list, because I should regard myself as the worst sinner of all. We can all think of someone that we think is worse than ourselves and we all like...

The Right Stuff

Posted 06-01-2018 at 08:21 AM by snowduck

Titus 2:1 - You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine. - Remember the movie "The Right Stuff"? That's what we all need. We like our churches, we have friends there and may have been going there for years and might even help run it and maintain it. We should be going there to hear God's word and worship him, if not our church has become a social club, no matter what we call it. As Christ says in Luke 14:34 - “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness,...
