In the arms of the Father

The gift paid in full

Move forward in faith, not by feelings

Freely you have received

Faith such as this

From Bethlehem to your heart

For nothing is impossible with God

Born humbly and among plain folks

Surprise Forgiveness

We reap what we sow

I’m sure we have all heard that expression, “We reap what we sow.” And it’s usually in regard to having bad things happen, because of bad behavior. But it actually applies to all things in life.

If a farmer scrimps on seed, he will get a poor crop. But if he plants his seed generously, it will produce a good crop.

In the Bible, Paul teaches about giving back to God through our tithes and offerings. In 2 Corinthians 9:6-8, Paul writes, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each person should give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

When we sow generously into the field of God, we reap a harvest of blessings, from God. When people tithe in church, that’s giving ten percent, the church will ...

In the arms of the Father

How great is the love of God for His children? How deeply does His heart break for those who don’t believe and want nothing to do with Him?

When we look upon a field of beautiful flowers, or across a majestic mountain range, and realize it is a part of God’s creation, it is awe inspiring.

To touch the soft fur of a puppy, or to feel winter snowflakes tickling your face, is a reminder of how tender God’s love is for us.

God’s love is also stronger than anything we can imagine, and when we look at all the beauty He has created, we need to know that everything He created was for us.

Ephesians 1:4 says, “For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world.” He created the world and everything in it for us to enjoy and have dominion over, in other words take care of.

How great is the Love of God, for us? Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am convinced that neither death ...

Giving gifts of love

The gift paid in full

Do you ever look back at your life before you came to know Jesus? What a huge difference, and it is through that difference that people can see Jesus in us.

The Bible tells us that we are being transformed into the likeness of Christ with ever increasing glory. That means that after we become Christ’s, we can continue to become like Him in Him. But we don’t grow in Jesus on our own; we need God’s involvement in our lives. However, God will never push himself on us. We need to want His help.

Matthew 7:7 says; “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” This life we live as believers is a free gift from God, paid for in full by Jesus, but we need to want it bad enough to claim it. If someone gives you a gift and sets it on the table in front of you, it is never really yours unless you pick it up and receive it.

Jesus told Nicodemus, that he needed to be born again, to receive salvation. The problem is that we don’t become born again by just sitting in a pew; we become born again by asking Jesus to forgive our sins and taking hold of His free gift ...
