With the recent losses of those we love in our church family, we long even more for “a beautiful place called Heaven.”
Walking in the steps of Jesus should be a constant reminder of the depth of our blessings and the height of our opportunities as a special congregation of the Lord’s people.
We have no choice about making choices, every single day! The choices we make and how we make them will set the course for our life here, and for our life to come.
This is the theme for the thirty-seventh year of Horizons based on the experience of Paul in Thessalonica, Greece during the second missionary journey. As the apostles “turned the world upside down” with the gospel message, so are we to confront our lost world with the lifesaving news that Jesus is Savior and Lord!
On Father’s Day, we are reminded of the godly qualities our heavenly Father possesses, and the same qualities we are to pursue in every life setting, beginning in our homes.
In giving His disciples the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus provides an example of how to faithfully and effectively speak to our Heavenly Father, with the assurance He knows and hears us.
Before giving His disciples the model prayer, Jesus provided four principles for prayer according to the will of God.
Why do some who have obeyed the gospel eventually leave the church? In most cases, it is not an abrupt giving up on the life of faith, but a gradual drifting away from the Lord and His church.
Some do not appreciate the Old Testament as they should, but think what we would be missing without it: the Creation, the Flood, the Ten Commandments and Psalm 23, to name just a few. Jesus and the New Testament writers relied heavily on the Old Testament, and so must we.
There is a reason the Old Testament book of Psalms has been described as “man’s cry addressed to God.” It speaks to our greatest fears and calls for our even greater faith.
