Just a thought: Lord, you take over

Isn't it true that we spend most of our time operating in our own strength and power? When was the last time you said, "Lord, You take over…" and wasn't it after you had given it your best and your best wasn't good enough to get it done. We often fall into the trap of thinking "This is what I do, and I will do it…Spiritual and impossible things are what God does and when I need help with those things I'll turn to Him." But just as it was for Peter, it is for ...

Rasmussen: Do not be afraid — this is expected

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim. Have you heard that name? On May 11th of this year she was convicted of apostasy and adultery. What had she done? Well, she was a Christian, having been raised by her Christian mom. But since her dad was a Muslim, even though he had been absent, since he was a Muslim – her being a Christian was apostasy. And then, she married a Christian and got pregnant. And since she was supposed to be a Muslim, and he wasn't a Muslim man, that's adultery. The Sudanese government gave her three days to reject the Christian ...

5 reasons we need camp meetings now more than ever

Each summer I do something odd by most American standards: I spend one week with my extended family, we sleep in a crowded cabin with no air conditioner and we go to worship services three times per day - alongside of hundreds of others - in an open air structure with a sawdust floor. The songs we sing were written long before I was born and the sermons last much longer than 15 to 18 minutes.

Ghanaian missionary staying in U.S. to start revival

Saul was an ordinary guy who went out to look for lost donkeys. He didn't have any expectations of being a king, nor did he set out to be king of Israel. All he wanted was to find his father's lost donkeys and go back home, but not only were the donkeys found, Saul ended up being king of Israel (1 Samuel 9:1-27; 10:1-24).

Just a thought: What will you do?

One of the greatest questions ever asked in response to hearing the Word of God… "What should we do then?" (Luke 3:10) To the believer who is already walking with God: Remember salvation is not turning over a new leaf, it is about living a new life. This affects all areas of your life - spouse, children, parents, work, giving and serving. Don't just talk about the benefits of salvation; live them. To those who are still in need of coming to Jesus - Repent! Turn from your sin and self efforts (Eph. 2:8,9) and trust in Jesus ...

Living ‘Under Grace’

"Sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14). Nearly 2000 years ago, Paul wrote that to Christians, to people he included with himself when he said, "We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life" (Romans 6:4-5).

Providence Christian School celebrates Reformation Day

Oct.31, 1517, was one of the turning points in world history, affecting not just church history, but the very course of civilization across the globe. On this day, Martin Luther, a German monk and university professor, nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenburg Church, in which he called for a return to the core teachings of Scripture (particularly as they pertain to salvation, grace and the authority of Scripture). Providence Christian School recognizes this historical event with a celebration of Reformation Day, held each year on Oct. 31 (or the Friday closest to the 31st).

Founded in 1897, the historic New Hope Baptist Church located on the corner of Brown and Ivy streets has been a beacon of hope, love, compassion and faith.

There’s always something you can do

At age 91, Covington resident Lovic Cyril Warren Jr. says in retrospect that his greatest accomplishment was preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. After his wife passed in 2003, Warren began to seek God's purpose for his golden years. When his eyesight weakened due to Macular Degeneration, Warren discontinued preaching and teaching Sunday School. He prayed this prayer, "Lord, I can't hear much better than I can see and I can't drive an automobile. You know how old I am - there must be something I can do for you."
