Aggravatingly Inconvenient

Some good things are just untimely. It’s like getting a phone call when you’re checking out at the store, or getting a text while you’re at the dinner table. Or have you ever been in a hurry, but someone keeps dragging out a conversation....Keep Reading

Lesson Learned

One day Leslie noticed I was stressing out from responsibilities at home and work, so she graciously gave me a free pass and said, "I have everything covered here. Why don't you go somewhere by yourself, take your Bible and just take a break?" She was so wise. I needed that. I went to Bass Lake, sat down on the dock and began reading 1 Timothy. ...Keep Reading

This is a special day. Today I pass the baton, the torch of the pastoral care of the loving people of Wake Chapel Christian Church to Isaac Mooneyham. But I decided rather to pass a sword to him because the Word of God is the center of this church and his ministry. ...Keep Reading

An “X” on the Sidewalk

When my dad, a country preacher, took a church in the city, he was in the habit of helping needy people. They began knocking on our door almost every day. He gave them clothes, food and money. Their stories of need were convincing. Often, they would eat at our table and listen to our devotions. They even put an X on the sidewalk to let other “men of the road” know where to get a handout. My dad was such a “soft touch” that we often were pretty tight financially....Keep Reading

The Motherhood of God

“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you” (Isaiah 66:13) In these comforting words we see a very tender and compassionate image of our God. We’re used to thinking of God in the masculine sense. When teaching His disciples how to pray, Jesus told them to address God as “Our Father.” Yet here, God reveals that His nature is not limited to a small stereotypical viewpoint. God is much more profound than that. “God is spirit” (John 4:24), and likens Himself to many fatherly and motherly characteristics....Keep Reading

Awana students are being encouraged to learn scripture for many good reasons. Remembering God’s word strengthens our faith, shapes the way we view the world, helps us overcome temptation, and helps us detect wrongful thinking in the world, and opens a direct line of communication from God to us. Here are some interesting facts about the how the brain works, and how we can apply them to how we learn scripture....Keep Reading

Demon Possession

In Luke 8:26-39 we have an account of the confrontation between Jesus and a man with a “legion” of demons. Demons are angels who followed the Devil when he sinned against God. These are spirit beings who act in the world by inhabiting the bodies of humans and animals to work against God....Keep Reading
