John 20:29 (NIV) - Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
I think that John 20:29 can be thought of as the basis for the entire Christian church on earth, because it talks about the faith and blessedness of anyone who believes in Christ without having seen him. God has forbidden us to make images of him, and of course there are no photos or

What Does God Treasure?

Posted 10-01-2014 at 07:55 AM by snowduck

Deuteronomy 7:6 (NIV) - For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. - The prophet Moses is generally regarded as the author of the book of Deuteronomy in the old testament of the Bible. Written shortly before his death about 1406 B.C. he summarizes God's laws and reminds the Israelites that they are chosen by God as his treasured possession. The Israelites probably didn't...

How Long Is An Age?

Posted 09-04-2014 at 01:56 PM by snowduck

Ephesians 2:7 (NIV) - ... in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. - Concerned with how long ago Christ was here some people may say "why is God taking so long to come back, shouldn't he have been here by now?" And some have undoubtedly fallen away from the Christian faith thinking he's not coming or are tired of being made fun of and considered behind the times by some. But Christ tells us in...

Attitude Is Everything

Posted 08-05-2014 at 08:39 AM by snowduck

Luke 18:9-14 (NIV) To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even...

Real riches

Posted 07-02-2014 at 10:58 AM by snowduck

Proverbs 16:16 (NIV) - How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver. - We all know we can't pay any bills with wisdom or buy anything with it, but the Bible says it is better to have than gold. It's hard for us to believe this, and that's why trust in God is so important, he will always take care of us even if we don't agree with his methods. Being rich is fine but wisdom should come first. God was so pleased that King Solomon asked him for wisdom (after offering him...
