But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 ESV An old country preacher was challenged by a highly educated agnostic.

Indeed, the movement against racism and discrimination that started after the death of George Floyd  ..

Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 Those of us who are parents know how difficult it is for small kids to be still. One of the worst punishments you can administer to smaller children is making them stand in the corner for a long time. Children want to move about. They have to expand all that youthful energy.  ..

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ. Ephesians 4:15 There is undoubtedly much frustration among the masses. Years of socio-economic marginalization have led to an explosion of emotions that undermine the just cause for people protesting the death of George Floyd and many other African Americans.

During that long period, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God. God heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them. Exodus 2:23-25 The unrest that has unfolded throughout many cities  ..

Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone. Zechariah 10:1 NIV There is something majestic about rain. It is unpredictable and indispensable for sustaining all life forms. Rain can be soothing in its outburst, yet devastating in its ferocity. It is one of the essential elemen ..

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 I read a story this morning about the lead singer of a Christian band who wrote a letter to say that he no longer believes in God. This man grew up in a Christian home, and his father was a pastor. He said that though his Christian faith has defined his life, he now realizes that God does not exist. The other members of ..
