Relationships and Community

It would appear that a number of Christians have no idea that the Church – the fellowship of believers – is about relationships. A number of current examples come to mind.  Just the other day a young man who has travelled with me overseas and worked with me in my own country wrote a text […]

Christmas Music

It is an interesting time of the year when many secular radio stations begin to play an occasional Christmas song. And, the closer we get to December 25th the more the music is oriented towards Christmas until often in the last week all music played has a Christmas theme.  In the midst of Christmas music […]

Let Me Teach You

Jesus said an amazing thing in Matthew 11:28-30. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and […]

The Christmas Hypocrites

It is almost the start of December, the month we celebrate Christmas as North American believers.

Whoever…

John 3:16 states: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” “Whoever” unrolls the welcome mat of heaven to humanity.  “Whoever” invites the world to God. Jesus could have so easily narrowed the scope, changing “whoever” to whatever. “Whatever […]

Jesus…

I have not written a blog in a few days … I try not to write just for the sake of writing but to write when I have something to say and want to share. Thus last month I missed three days writing a blog and four this month. Breaking routine.? Yes! Allowing more time […]

Sometimes I Miss the Obvious There is an annoying advertisement on television for hotels.com which features a character called “Captain Obvious” He has been around since 2014 and is becoming fairly famous through his somewhat obvious comments in ads for his company Thus his name Captain Obvious Makes you wonder about comments you hear and […]
