  • Disappointment can be a blessing in disguise

    By Brian Owens

    Faith columnist

    I had accepted that my child would have Down syndrome, decided there was nothing in the world that could change my love for him. I had loved him from the moment I knew I was pregnant with him. Did I love him unconditionally? I did. But still. The pain was there.”

  • Don’t fly from faith when anxious; fight for faith

    Anxiety is a dark companion. The Apostle Paul, writing to Roman Christians about his struggles in living the Christian life says, “When I want to do right, evil lies close at hand” (Romans 7:21). While this refers specifically to the sin nature that is still present in every child of God, one common manifestation of this is anxiety and worry. For most people anxiety is close at hand, lurking in the shadows. It is easily provoked, and with much difficulty is it dealt with.

  • True hope built on Jesus’ name, not Christian acts

    Nineteenth century British Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon shared the following story: A boy in the streets, selling mince pies, kept crying “hot mince pies!” A gentleman bought one and found it to be quite cold. “Boy,” he said, “why do you call these pies hot?” The boy retorted “That’s the name they go by, sir!”

  • Give Jesus all the credit for life-changing salvation

    There is an old saying that goes “the proof is in the pudding.”
    Likewise, the Bible says in 1 John 2:3, “And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.” For example, if I claim to be a skilled athlete and when it comes to the game of basketball I can dominate the court, what is going to prove my claim? My ability (or inability) to play the game of basketball is going to validate or disqualify my claim to be a very skilled basketball player.
