  • Sowing your seed in thorns, rock or soil?

    I was talking with a friend of mine who does some work for me from time to time this week and found out some really interesting information.
    I’ve known “Ritchie” for quite some time, yet never really knew a lot about him personally. Out of the blue he tells me how he has spent much of his young life in jail and even federal prison.
    I was taken aback about that, and certainly had to ask lots of questions.

    Alton Christian Church
    offers Easter Bible study
    Alton Christian Church will offer an “Easter Experience” six-week Bible study series beginning Feb. 24 from 6:30-8 p.m. lead by Gary Zeller.
    According to event organizers, “The ‘Easter Experience’ is a powerful series on the days leading up to Christ going to the cross to die for our sins and the impact it has made on our world today. Come out for this riveting dramatic storytelling by Kyle Idleman on cinematic screen and join us in small group discussion.”

  • God doesn’t care who comes in first

    Nowadays, all you hear and see on television is something related to politics. It’s an important topic indeed.
    So many yearn for the top spot of honor in our culture today. The whole idea of being popular and prestigious is appealing to most of us.
    However, the Bible tells us a lot about what God wants of us, and how being the most popular or being on top is of little value to God. Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon, who had all of the money, power and possessions a man could want.

  • Seeking God’s face without a formula

    Circle this date on your calendar: Feb. 15, “John Frum Day.”
    Celebrated on the remote South Pacific island of Tanna, on John Frum Day islanders dress up as American G.I.s, with “USA” painted in red on their bare chests and backs and march in perfect step with bamboo rifles on their shoulders.

  • Ignoring God didn’t work for pharaoh, and certainly won’t work for you

    It’s interesting how we often try to follow God’s rules on our terms, not his.
    How many times have we thought about trying to quit sinning, yet plan on doing it again?
    I know I have, and in my mind often think, “Well maybe next week or next month or later in life I will stop doing that.”
    The pharaoh of Egypt in the book of Exodus kept putting off God’s commands when he kept the children of Israel in slavery. God brought about plague after plague against the tyranny of the Egyptians.

  • Five hundred witnesses can’t be wrong

    I am often perplexed by those who do not believe the Bible is real or believe in Jesus.
    Hundreds of original manuscripts of the Bible exist today. Hundreds of eyewitnesses saw Jesus crucified and rise. These are the documented facts.
    The Bible is not some elaborate fable or book of thoughts. It is no less than the inspired word of God.  There have been many manipulations of what the Bible says by various religions, but its words are the same today as they were 2,000 years ago.

    According to event organizers, Shane and Shane are nationally known contemporary Christian artists. This duo has many popular songs out such as “Beauty For Ashes,” “Before The Throne,” “He is Exalted,” “Saved By Grace,” and many more.

  • In good times and bad, God is in control

    Have you experienced great loss in your life, like a death in the family or financial troubles?
    I am sure you have and have asked God, “Why me?”
    Personal suffering is part of life but as Christians, aren’t we just clay in the potter’s hands? Right now I know a lot of people are suffering, especially due to the economic situation locally and nationally.  I believe sometimes we go through bad circumstances to have a closer relationship with our creator.
