  • Here’s how a relationship with Christ gives new life

    By Larry Coleman

    Faith Columnist

    We should realize based on our definition of faith that true Christianity is not a religion. The creator didn’t initiate a religion when he breathed his life into the first man. That is why the “ian” at the end of the word Christian is so important to understand.

    It means to be characterized by, in this case a person Christ.

    If you call yourself a Christian you are telling others that you are not religious, but that you have a living relationship with a person.

  • Make it God’s best year in your life

    Happy New Year! There is something special about the beginning of a new year and all the possibilities it contains.

    Many will make resolutions for weight loss, better budgeting of money, opening their own business, going back to school, or finally cleaning out that one closet that plagues the entire house. However, of all the things on our proverbial list to accomplish, I pray a better relationship with Christ, takes priority.

  • God provides us equipment for our fights in life

    My father used to be a kickboxer. To this day, I can still remember him sparring.

    While wearing his giant red boxing gloves, suited up in his matching leather padded gear, he would stand there taking hit upon hit. I can recall the times when he would squint his brow and grit his teeth onto his mouth guard as his body was being struck. My father was invincible, strong; he was and still is my protector.

  • True Christian life is based on identity

    By Larry Coleman

    Faith columnist

    By this time several things should be surfacing in your consideration.

    The first being that true biblical faith has to be placed in a person – Jesus the Christ. Secondly, it is what he does in and through you, not what you do for him on his behalf that is significant.

  • Distraction is deeper than you think

    Distraction, a popular word used in sermons and Bible study lessons as it relates to our purpose and destiny, has a much deeper meaning than you may think.

    I have always heard this word used to describe the actions of individuals who have lost focus or in some way had their attention diverted to something they shouldn’t. However, a few years ago, I took time to really look at this word and upon further study, came away with a slightly different take on its popular usage.
