Stop Playing Church

by Suzanne Williams I wrote a scene the other day and heard the voices protesting it with every letter that I typed. “Don’t say that.” “Don’t go there.” It hit me afterward. So much of Christian writing has become about coddling Christians. It’s there to keep us in our glorified bubbles, untouched by […]

Gems From Pastor Jim by Pastor Jim Hughes

by Jim Hughes Ps. 119:51 The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your law. Pride comes before a fall. When pride rules, we become self-focused. We begin to think that we are God. We forget who we are and our place in life. The proud have […]

Prayer, Prayers, and Praying

by Rebekah Beene “Dear Lord, thank You for a beautiful day” is how my bedtime prayers always started. Then with my mom by my side we’d go through the take care of’s. “Take care of momma and daddy…” and on down the line throughout our family. You could say I’ve been praying for […]

The Spiritual Discipline of Fasting

by Charles Stanley Acts 13:1-3 Fasting has two important components. One is abstention, which eliminates distractions. The other is undivided attention on God, which allows connection with Him on a deeper level. Daniel was living under captivity in Babylon when he read God’s promise to free the Israelites after a certain period of […]

Nothing is too Hard

by L. G. Cowman “Is there anything too hard for Jehovah?” (Gen. 18:14). Here is God’s loving challenge to you and to me today. He wants us to think of the deepest, highest, worthiest desire and longing of our hearts, something which perhaps was our desire for ourselves or for someone dear to […]
