The Reason

Posted 04-29-2014 at 11:07 AM by snowduck

Isaiah 64:6 (NIV) - We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. - I think that all to often today we hear of the need for Jesus Christ and though it does come up, it seems to me we don't hear why we need him enough. And I think the why is crucial for churches trying to reach the non-Christian. I think it's only natural for non-Christians...

The Die-hards

Posted 04-01-2014 at 12:28 PM by snowduck

Matthew 10:22 - You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved - This scripture verse is short, but I think it packs a big message. While the first part of it tells us what we can expect from the world for following Christ, the second part seems to imply that some who follow him will fall away. I wonder if that will be the rebellion told about in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until...

”Luke 7:22 (NIV) - So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. -
John the Baptist heard that Jesus Christ was working nearby where he was working and wanted to know if he was the messiah (from Hebrew mashiah, “anointed”) whose coming was foretold in the scriptures, "the genuine

A New Beginning

Posted 12-31-2013 at 09:38 AM by snowduck

(A repost of my blog from Jan. 2012) 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...
