An Alternative to New Year's Resolutions

Posted by Rose Anderson on

Are you making any New Year's Resolutions? Do you usually make such resolutions? I used to make a few every year but I never told anyone what they were. The main reason for this was because I don't think I have ever kept a New Year's resolution past January. I don't actually know anyone who has...

So, are you ready for Christmas?

Ephesians 5 says, “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, (v. 16) making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” In this passage, the apostle Paul is addressing a specific church in a designated city in a historical period and in that context...

Fighting Pornography (And All Other Sin)

Posted by Buster Brown on

I just read Finally Free (Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace) by Heath Lambert (Zondervan, 2013).  The book deals with pornography specifically but in general makes a statement about fighting sin. He gives eight grace-based strategies for fighting for pornography. But he...

Casting Your Cares

Posted by Rose Anderson on

1 Peter 5:7  “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”  This sounds so simple.   Some things are easy to cast on Him.  Weekend plans.  Which new appliance to buy.  The weather.  Simple choices.  Minor disappointments. ...
