Do I Really Have to Read My Bible Everyday?

By on Dec 14, 2017

  Do you have to breathe every day?   Haha, snarky comments aside, it is extremely important for us Christians to be meditating on Scripture as much as we possibly can. And yes, if you profess to believe in Jesus Christ, that includes you.   I’ve been in church a long time. Not just as a Sunday attendee, but as someone who loved going to church even when there was no service. Yet, even I hardly ever opened my Bible outside of church services. I thought that being in the church building was enough to cover that lacking part of my Christian life. In reality, I didn’t really...

All of Creation – The Greater and Lesser Lights

By on Dec 12, 2017

    14And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16And God made the two great lights–the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night–and the stars. 17And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18to rule over the day and over the nights, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw...

Praise in a Not So Silent Place

By on Dec 7, 2017

  “Having received this order, [the jailer] put [Paul and Silas] into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were unfastened.” – Acts 16:24-26, ESV   To say praise is important in the Bible would be a great understatement. If you need convincing, just read through the book of...

All of Creation – The Heavens and The Earth

By on Dec 2, 2017

  “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” -Genesis 1:1 So for our first little segment on Creation, I’d like to take a look at the beginning of it all: The Heavens and the Earth. More specifically, space: The Final Frontier. The story begins: A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away. Just kidding. Well it was a long time ago, but perhaps not in a galaxy far far away. Basically, the story begins with God. Nothing else. Literally, nothing else.   But you might be asking, “How does that even work? If there was nothing, how was there God?” I don’t know. I...

We Got Trust Issues

By on Nov 30, 2017

  A lot of people have trust issues. Personally, my trust issues mostly come from a situation where another person hurt me. I had trusted them, they ultimately found a way to hurt me, and I became closed off to, not only them, but also to other people. I’m sure this issue isn’t just something I deal with, but a lot of people in the church do the same. It’s easy to observe this when I’m teaching my high school students. I ask them to share something as simple as a prayer request, and I just see them look around, avoiding the question or saying something surface-level like, “I need help...

Does Dating Mean I Get More Privileges?

By on Nov 28, 2017

  Dating. An invention that was created during the 1900s for a man to get to know a woman whom they fancied on an intellectual and emotional level. Believe it or not, when dating first came about, the girl and the boy would get to know each other in the presence of their parents! I’m pretty sure if I were to have a date with a girl in front of my parents, there wouldn’t be a second date. Fast forward a 100 years, it’s safe to say that this invention has drastically changed, and I’m not entirely sure if it’s for the better. Our society has made a rather clear definition of what it means...
