Bring It On

2 Corinthians 12:10 - I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong - Like a lot of the Bible this verse says something totally opposite of what "the world" teaches. The author the Apostle Paul doesn't seem to be making any sense here. When the Lord chose Paul as an apostle, a servant of the Lord named Ananias questioned God's choosing of him, because prior to becoming a Christian Paul was known for persecuting...

Take Out The Trash

Posted 03-01-2012 at 08:46 PM by snowduck

1 Peter 5:7 - Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.- 1 Peter was written by the Apostle Peter, one of Christ's original disciples to Christians in the northern provinces of Asia Minor to encourage them during a persecution. In 5:7 Peter invites them to "take out the trash" by putting ALL their troubles, concerns and worries on Jesus Christ and letting him take care of them. And it's no different today. We all have "trash" we'd like to get rid of, and Jesus will...

Big Plans

Posted 01-30-2012 at 11:38 AM by snowduck
Updated 01-30-2012 at 12:24 PM by snowduck

Proverbs 19:21- Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.- This happens to us all, we plan something but things come out differently. When this happens it might be because God has something else in mind for us. We may not agree with him and think that our idea is better, but he will always have his way. He made the plan to save us from all our sins by sending his son Jesus to "give his life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45.) at the time of Adam...

A New Beginning

Posted 01-03-2012 at 09:50 AM by snowduck
Updated 01-03-2012 at 10:07 AM by snowduck

2 Corinthians 5:17 - 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,"...

Merry Christmas

Posted 12-01-2011 at 06:46 AM by snowduck

With the approach of Christmas we will probably be hearing from Christians who like to tell us that it's displeasing to God for us to celebrate Christmas for one reason or another. These people may have good intentions, but they remind me of what the Apostle Paul wrote about some of the Israelites of his day in Romans 10:2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. The Bible makes it clear that we are free to celebrate Christmas (or any other day,) or...
