  • The writer of Hebrews refers back to the Old Testament scripture many times, showing that Christ truly was the fulfillment of the promises found there.
    Jesus Christ, as the son of God, is superior to all things and all religions, and faith in him alone is sufficient for a victorious Christian life.
    Hebrews has sometimes been called a miniature bible in that it begins with God (see Genesis 1:1) and ends with the heavenly Jerusalem (see Revelation 21), with Christ in between.

  • Do you think we should share our faith? Why? In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus gave the disciples something called, “The great commission.”
    And Jesus came and spoke unto them saying, “All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

  • “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ” (Ephesians 2:4-5).
    This past weekend many people observed Easter Sunday with everything from sunrise worship services and new spring clothes to colored eggs and chocolate bunnies.  While the holiday has become another American excuse to spend money, it still marks the most significant event in all human history—the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

  • The walls and floor are littered with graffiti.
    The writings proclaim everything from a love a of heroin to a love of a God.
    The room has a stale smell of hopelessness and despair.
    But for five hours every Sunday night that changes.
    Instead it is filled with a message of faith and deliverance.

  •  Several years ago I found this recipe for Easter Story cookies in a Nature Living Magazine, and decided to share it again with you readers.

    We live in a world where too many children only have a secular view of Easter. Our children need to be taught that Easter is not about colored eggs and Easter bunnies, or spring break. It is about an empty tomb and a risen Christ.

  •  I borrowed the headline from a wonderful Easter play or Cantata I saw several years ago. It was fantastic. There was so much love and devoted faithfulness by everyone who participated, it was so encouraging.

    If you would read Matthew 23-25, you will read of the last sermons Jesus preached.

    So much happened the last week of Jesus life on Earth, I can share a little of it, but you should read it in its entirety. 

  •  “Now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.   Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,  and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him” (Colossians 3:8-10).

    With its nose lined up on the white centerline, everything is ready. 

    “Downtown traffic. 757 Sierra Yankee. Departing runway 26, downtown traffic,” says the pilot.

    The engine begins to roar. It speeds down the runway. Then suddenly—lift off. 

    The climb begins.

    Once at 3,500 feet, everything is quiet. Off in the distance, are the towering Great Smoky Mountains.
