Good Morning everyone
In my daily devotions this morning I was moved to ask you, who post and read in this forum this question.
What part of your life have you noticed is being sacrificed in order for you to put all the time you do on the internet? Is it your family time, or your prayer time, how about your devotional time between you and God? Which is it that you have put aside so that you can spend hours upon hours on the internet surfing, chatting, and posting endlessly?
In this day and age, people are still splitting theological hairs over the question "Who is Jesus?"
Some say Jesus was a great this or that. "He was a great teacher." "He was a great prophet". "He was the greatest moral person who ever lived."
Yes, Jesus was the greatest teacher and preacher the world has ever known. But He is more than that.
Jesus is the Husband to the bride
He is the Friend to the friendless
He is the Physician to the sick
"If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Psalm 11:3
Just as there are foundations that are dug and laid for buildings, so there are spiritual foundations upon which we can build a stable spiritual life. If our foundations are destroyed, or if we try to build our lives upon an incomplete foundation, to that degree we compromise our ability to stand during life's storms.
I've known many people who could prophesy or pray for the sick
In the forum there is a thread asking if it is right for a Christian to be charitable during Christmas. I want to tackle this subject here in my blog. To begin, a verse that will set the stage during this season we call Christmas
"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men" (Luke 2:13-14).
Christmas is a very important time of year. It's
"Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:10-11).
St. Nicholas should be an inspiration to us all. He was a godly man whose reputation for giving to people caused him to be a revered example of what compassion and giving are all about. He was not a jolly, fat man who climbed down chimneys and he didn't have flying reindeer!
