Why Do You Go To Church? 9/12/2023

Send to Kindle

by Robin McKinley

Is going to church with the wrong motive right or wrong? The answer should be pretty simple. Here goes, it all depends. Maybe we should ask, it all depends on what? What reasons do you have for attending church?

Let us meet together inside the Temple of God and bolt the doors shut. Your enemies are coming to kill you tonight.   Nehemiah 6:10

In my teenage years, I attended Tuesday night Praise and Prayer services. I initially went for the wrong reason. What was my motive? I wanted to see a girl. That motive changed, however, because I received Christ as my Savior at one of those meetings. So, what began as a wrong motive led to going for the right reason.

A practicing witch began attending the Sunday morning services in one of our neighboring churches. Her intention involved casting a curse on that church. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, she became liberated from witchcraft and started serving the Lord. Another wrong motive turned right.

In the case of Nehemiah in today’s chapter, he was asked to do something contrary to God’s command.  Nehemiah considered running from his enemies and hiding in the temple a sin against God. In his case, entering the house of the Lord with the wrong motive was wrong.

I have seen movies where people have secluded themselves in a church, calling it sanctuary. I guess it makes for good television, but we don’t receive sanctuary from a building; we receive it in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

For the most part, going to church with wrong motives can be made right. There are, however, times when people have entered them to kill, steal, and destroy. Fortunately, there is forgiveness for folks who enter with these types of motives if they repent of their actions. 

The Right Reasons for Attending Church 

The right reasons for attending church consist of the following; 

  • Worship God, 
  • Fellowship with other Christians and 
  • To grow to become an effective disciple of Jesus. 

Much of our work as Christians should happen outside of the church building. Thus requiring our Christianity to become an obvious part of our daily lives, including when we are at work, with friends and family, and with everyone else we come in contact with.

I trust that you enter your church building regularly with the proper motives. I can’t emphasize enough that those motives are to worship God, fellowship with other Christians, and grow to become effective disciples of Jesus. 

We Are The Church 

Of course, a building is only a building. The Bible says, however, that we make up God’s holy temple.

Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.  We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Ephesians 2:20-21

Let’s close with these motivating and encouraging words from the writer of the Book of Hebrews.

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25

Lord, help us keep our motives pure inside and outside the church. Also, keep us safe, especially when we gather together in church to worship you.

CrossReads Weekly Devotional: Remembering 9/11 9/11/2023

Send to Kindle


by Rebekah Beene

I remember the morning of 9/11. I was getting ready for work and was watching the news. Of course I thought what a terrible tragic accident that a plane crashed into a building. And then on the way to work I heard on the radio that another accident happened the same way.

I was very sick to my stomach. This was planned. America was under attack. And more tragedy occurred. The final of the four planes crashed after heroic measures to stop the intended destination. I don’t know about y’all, but it brings tears to my eyes 20 years later as I remember how I felt then and how I still feel now.

Oh beloved, I hear the Lord speaking. He is not the author of evil, nor did He coordinate those heinous attacks. There is one mastermind behind all evil and he is known. His name is satan. And he is real. And he uses whoever he can, to do whatever he can to kill, steal and destroy. Unfortunately he looks like a winner at times like 9/11. He is not.

You beloved, are unfortunately as under attack as our beloved country was that day. Although we haven’t seemed to be able to wipe out the evil terrorist groups that took credit for the heinous crime against our nation, God will one day wipe out all evil forever.

In the meantime, God wants you to know two things: You are not without defense. And you cannot pacify the enemy. Your only defense to the attacks of the enemy, satan, is to stand on the Word of God. As you learn to believe what God’s Word says, you will find strength and courage beyond human means. You can’t win any battle by giving in to the whims of evil. But you are automatically the ultimate winner when you resist the devil in the power of Holy Spirit. Yes, you have had harsh battles, heinous things that have happened along the way. Some of you are still grieving the losses. Grief is not a short momentary issue. But it doesn’t have to rule your life. God says this morning to stand up, shake off the evil notion that you are victimized forever. He says to rise up and pray. Rise up and praise. Rise up and live this day as though you are indeed the winner in Christ that you are. It’s not easy, but it gets easier as you lean on the Lord.

God loves you and He’s for you. Always. Whatever is happening to you today, you can rest in His promises and stand on His Word. And you can live in the Light of His never ending mercy, grace and Agape love.

Proverbs 15:26 Evil plans are an abomination to the Lord…

Psalm 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life. You stretch out Your hand against the anger of my foes; with Your right hand You save me.

1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Ephesians 6:12-13 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.

News From Nashville & Beyond 9/8/2023

Send to Kindle

by Staci Stallings

Transcribed from a television interview with “The Music Plays… World Tour” featuring opening solo artist Kalin Lane and headliner Ashton Raines, both accompanied by their wives, Beth Raines and Danae Lane.)

NFNB:  First of all, welcome to you all.  Thanks for sitting down with us.

Ashton:  Thank you for having us.

NFNB:  Let’s start with what it’s like to be on a world tour.  What cities?  What are the crowds like?

Kalin:  Well, for me it’s been an absolute dream come true.  I mean, getting invited to be here with Ashton who, let’s face it is the King of Country music right now.  Standing on that stage every night, hearing the fans singing my songs, cheering, in all these different countries…. it’s truly amazing.

Ashton:  I have to agree.  I stand down there as Kalin’s playing, and there’s just this incredible energy that sweeps through the whole place, no matter if we’re playing for 20,000 or 60,000.  To hear those fans, to get to connect with them.  It’s what I came here to do, it’s why I started singing in the first place, and to get to do it night after night has been such a blessing.

NFNB:  How’s it been working together?  The two of you play country music, but it’s really not quite the same kind of country.

Ashton (laughing): Yeah. I could never pull off the hair!  (Reaches over and ruffles Kalin’s famously stringy blond mane then shrugs.)  But it works, you know?  I play the more traditional stuff, Kalin rocks the house, it works.

Kalin:  I have to agree. I think it’s really come together because we’re not two performers who happen to get on the same stage every night.  We really understand each other and respect each other for what life has thrown at us and the hard knocks it’s taken for us to be able to play from the heart so to speak.  So it doesn’t matter that Ashton plays the acoustic and piano, and I’ve got more electric and keyboards to my style of music because I think deep down we both really see that we’re doing what we love to do, making the kind of music we love to make.  When you do that, somehow the synthesis of what comes out of it just works even if on the outside it doesn’t look like it should.

NFNB:  You mentioned what life has thrown at you.  Would you call the road to get here bumpy or smooth?

(Ashton looks at Beth who smiles back, and Kalin grins at Danae who brushes her brown locks from her forehead and shakes her head with a soft laugh.)

All:  Bumpy.


Ashton:  Definitely bumpy.  (Beth nods, her eyes filled with respect and love as she looks at her husband, and the two of them share a moment.  When he turns back to the camera, Ashton seems to drift into another world.)  After my first wife died of cancer, there was a long stretch in there that honestly I didn’t even want to be here.  I mean here as in making music here, but even here as in on the planet.  Then one night I wound up in this little diner in the middle of nowhere (He looks over to Beth.)  And an angel from Heaven pulled me back and gave me a reason to keep on living.  (As if no one else is watching, he leans over and kisses her softly.)  Thank you, Babe (he whispers so the camera barely catches the words even as he takes her hand and kisses it as well. Then, without letting her go, he turns back.)  To be real honest, I’m not even sure I’d be here without her.

NFNB:  So Beth, what was it like?  I mean, he is the Ashton Raines.  It’s like every girl’s dream to have the king of music to walk in and sweep you off your feet.  That must have been surreal.

(They glance at each other.)

Beth:  Well, to be honest with you, I didn’t even know who he was that night.

NFNB:  You didn’t?

Beth:  No, really I didn’t. It’s a long story, but let’s just say I fell in love with a man, not a music star.

NFNB:  Okay.  Well… (Turning to the other couple.) Kalin, you also said bumpy.  Now we know a little about your career’s early fits and starts what with having to go back to your home country the first time around.  What was that like?

Kalin:  Rough.  Really, really rough.  To be honest with you, that first time I let the fame and the money and the adulation of all the people around me go straight to my head.  I fell in with a lifestyle I thought was great at first, but it caught up with me real fast.  When I lost everything–the dream, my meal ticket in Nashville and almost my life–I thought it was all over, you know?  Back then, there was no way I could have seen the amazing grace God was waiting to give me and the joy and the mercy and the grace He gives me every day now.  Getting to be here now, like this, with the Raines family, and my beautiful wife. (He turns to Danae and smiles.  She smiles back.)  I’m telling you it’s more than a dream come true.  In fact, it’s the reason I sing “Lucky” every night out there on stage.

That line about, “And it’s not fate, it’s not luck, it’s a gift from God above, that I found you, you found me, and we found love”?  Those aren’t just nice, pretty words. I really believe that, you know?  Because if it was not for God and the love of this wonderful, strong woman sitting next to me, I can almost guarantee I would not be sitting here today.  It’s more grace and love than I’ve ever deserved or imagined, I’ll tell you that.

NFNB:  Well, it’s almost time to wrap this up.  Closing thoughts, anyone?

Ashton:  The tour’s been amazing.  The fans, the cities, the experiences.  All out amazing.

Kalin:  Come out and see the show!

NFNB:  That’s it for now from News from Nashville & Beyond.  Now back to you in the studio.

Eubeltic Descent

Eubeltic Realm, Book One: a search for identity

Your soul will remember…
As a woman who wasn’t born to wealth or privilege, Abigaia has mastered the art of thievery. And she’s come to hate it. Not only is she plagued by guilt, but her shadowed upbringing and silent ways cause most of her town to question her sanity.

Yet, Abigaia’s eccentric father always taught her to be proud of her heritage. Her ancestry lies across the sea, in a prominent realm she’s read about but has never seen.

The man who desires Abigaia’s hand in marriage doesn’t share her hope of seeing the Eubeltic Realm. But disaster erupts in their path, and Abigaia’s dream may have a greater purpose—if that famed domain of her ancestors is now in crucial need of her.

The Eubeltic Realm series is best read in order. While this historical fantasy book does not have magical elements, the story is set in a completely fictional world.

Faith’s Checkbook: Coming In; Going Out 9/5/2023

Send to Kindle


by C. H. Spurgeon

“Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out”   (Deuteronomy 28:6).

The blessings of the law are not canceled. Jesus confirmed the promise when He bore the penalty. If I keep the commands of my LORD, I may appropriate this promise without question. This day I will come in to my house without fear of evil tidings, and I will come in to my closet expecting to hear good news from my LORD. I will not be afraid to come in unto myself by self-examination, nor to come in to my affairs by a diligent inspection of my business. I have a good deal of work to do indoors, within my own soul; oh, for a blessing upon it all, the blessing of the LORD Jesus, who has promised to abide with me. I must also go out. Timidity makes me wish that I could stay within doors and never go into the sinful world again. But I must go out in my calling, and I must go out that I may be helpful to my brethren and useful to the ungodly. I must be a defender of the faith and an assailant of evil. Oh, for a blessing upon my going out this day! LORD, let me go where Thou leadest, on Thy errands, under Thy command, and in the power of Thy Spirit. LORD Jesus, turn in with me and be my guest; and then walk out with me and cause my heart to burn while You speak with me by the way.

CrossReads Weekly Devotional: When the Storms Come 9/4/2023

Send to Kindle


by Precarious Yates

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

NIV 27-24:7 Matthew

The Father loves us so much that He gave us an anchor: the Rock of ages upon which we can build our lives. Jesus tells us the benefits of building our lives upon this Rock. Jesus is Christ, the Messiah, our Savior, and He is the ROCK we build the Church on and our lives on.

He also, in His love, warns us what happens when we do not build our lives on His promises, His teachings and His Word.

This parable from Jesus, about building our house upon the ROCK, teaches us that storms of life do hit us regardless of whether we are righteous or not. Hurricane Idalia didn’t pause its fury for the righteous. Just so, life’s storms come no matter what. Jesus teaches us how to weather the storms.

In the first century, teachings circulated that equated terrible events with God’s wrath. Jesus wanted to assure us that God still loves us no matter the circumstances, and we can anchor ourselves into His love to weather the storms.

Stories are powerful, and Jesus knew the power of storytelling. Stories help each person tap into the deeper meaning of spiritual life and understanding. Stories contain metaphors, which are the greatest common denominators that speak to the soul and spirit of a person. Our souls are made up of mind, will, and emotion. Our spirits, when they’ve been awaken by the Lord through salvation, are the seats of

conscience, wisdom, and communion. Jesus’ parables touch the soul, but they go beyond that. Jesus’ parables incorporated images and metaphors that bypass language and enter into a realm of pure wisdom, conscience and communion—beckoning our spirits to awaken to truth. This truth is Jesus Christ, and all the promises in the Bible are yes and amen through Him.

I’m not a builder or a carpenter, but I have played with LEGOs, and I know from this how important a solid foundation can be. And I know that it requires a whole lot more insurance to cover a house built on a beach or a flood plain than it does to cover a house built on a hilltop. Winds might blow off some shingles on a hilltop house, and waters may reach the porch, but winds and waves will demolish a house on the sand. I’ve even seen videos of beach houses carried out to sea during a hurricane. In the same way, the current weather conditions in society, with all the descent into lawlessness, it’s like a hurricane. Churches and denominations will continue to split. Families split over issues in the news or over politics. Wars will come. Conflicts will erupt. The waves will pound. The winds will beat against the house. People will be tossed to and fro by the winds and waves, or they will be anchored in Christ and His love and have peace in the center of it. May we find ourselves anchored in the peace of Christ which passes all understanding. Amen!

In The Middle of a Mess 9/1/2023

Send to Kindle

by Staci Stallings

As authors, we’re told not to react to reviews—at least not directly, out loud or in print.  And ultimately that’s probably good advice because a critical review often feels like someone is attacking one of our children.  While I don’t respond to critical reviews, I can’t help but think through how I would respond if I either had the chance or didn’t have quite so much self-control.

That’s where I found myself when I read a recent critical review of one of my most reviewed books.

I can’t speak for every author, but I know, for me, critical reviews come in one of four “flavors”:

  • It’s too preachy.
  • It’s not preachy enough.
  • It’s got a lot of typos and it’s badly written.
  • It’s supposed to be a Christian book, but these characters don’t act very Christian.

I’m going to leave the first two alone because they are mutually exclusive if you are going on anything other than strict opinion, and I can’t argue you out of your opinion.  I’m going to let the third one be because Amazon recently wrote to inform me that I had an extra space in one of my books that needed to be removed because someone complained. (No, I’m not kidding about that.) If readers are going to get that picky, I’m giving up on trying to please them. Not to even mention the ones who have written to complain about my spelling and grammar—and misspelled “spelling and grammar” in the one-sentence review! (Not kidding about that one either.)

Anyway, this particular critical review focused on #4—that the situation the characters were in was “not very Christian.”  As I drove after reading it (one of the times I tend to think things through best), I “argued” with the person, trying to explain that I don’t write Christian situations where everybody acts perfectly and always acts (except for the villain) in perfect Christian fashion.

I further pointed out to this nonexistent person that when I write, the thing that attracts me to a story is that the characters are in a mess. If they aren’t in a mess, what’s the point of trying to sort the mess out?  Then I had a revelation!

The stories I write start out with a mess, and I pose the question, “What if I dropped God In the middle of this mess and let Him work?  What would happen?  What miracles might come from it? What lessons would I learn through it?”

99 Cents or Kindle Unlimited

As I contemplated this question, I realized that that’s exactly my overriding philosophy in writing what I write, how I write it.  There’s a mess, and a character gets injected into the mess who brings God with them.  Untangling things is often rather difficult, but I’ve learned so much from doing this.

So, for example, what if you’ve got a guy whose family is rich, but he’s hurting because his mom died when he was really young and no one ever helped him through that pain and grief? Now he’s engaged to a woman who is using him to get to his family’s money and because he has the right name. He’s not in love with her, but he’s stuck and headed at breakneck speed toward a life he already hates.

That’s a pretty good mess, right?

Okay, so what if we take a young woman who gets a job with his family. She’s on the innocent side, barely surviving financially, but she has learned to cling to God.  If you give him, through her, the option of God, what would happen?
