Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God?

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), an evangelist from the early 1700′s helped lead revival in early colonial America. “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was the title of a famous sermon he delivered on July 8th 1741. Only four days after the 4th of July. Oops, sorry they had not invented Independence Day yet. That Continue Reading…

Perfect Butterflies

I was just returning from a Men’s Group Hot Dog Club and this butterfly was sitting on the bushes. Well I grabbed my cell phone and snapped a shot. I was hit by the beauty and delicacy and the detail of this creation. Then my mind went to Romans 12:1-2 where Paul wrote “do not Continue Reading…

My Life As A Sailboat

Get ready…this is a long one. But it’s worth the time if you tend to let your emotions run wild like I sometimes do! The logo that my husband and I chose for our ministry, The Reality Group, is a sailboat. We chose that because it’s a perfect picture of how we feel about serving Continue Reading…

Standing in Victory

  But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. John 21:4 (NASB)   It was Sunday morning and she would normally be in church. But not this Sunday. She was mad at God and tired of pretending to be the perfect Continue Reading…

The comma of grace.

As I’ve written about before, one Easter I got into a bit of a yelling match with a guy in a visor at an Easter egg hunt. The whole thing was exactly how Jesus imagined us honoring that day. We were at my in-laws country club, which always makes me feel a little weird. We’re Continue Reading…

The Virtue of Gratitude

In our modern, hectic society, what once was looked upon as the rule has, woefully, become the exception.  Manners, once, were second-natured.  Today, we look upon an act of kindness, a “second-mile” deed as out of the ordinary or exceptional in nature.    How can it be that in only a generation an act of kindness Continue Reading…

Finishing the Race by Grace

The other day, while reading my Bible, I came across a sentence that made me stop and think. It said, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him” (Colossians 2:6). I began to think back to the day when I first became a believer, when I first began running this Continue Reading…

Easter Made the Difference (part 2 of 2)

Edited by: Roxane Day In the last article (part 1 of 2), we saw how God countermanded his statement, “You are dead in your sins,” to the glorious new statement of your condition, “You are alive in Christ!” Jesus had to teach that it was impossible for them (and us) to merit eternal life by Continue Reading…

Easter Made the Difference (part 1 of 2)

Edited by: Roxane Day God is the Supreme Authority, Commander in Chief, the One who gets to make the rules—or break them—as the case may dictate. He even has the prerogative of countermanding His previous commands. For example: His most dramatic, gracious change for Believers was changing the declaration of fact, “You’re dead in your Continue Reading…
