Living Sacrifice

Romans 12:1-2 says,"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."

Discipline makes a difference

As a child, the fear of being caught breaking a rule was more inherent to me as morality. When I was faced with an opportunity to make a bad decision, the thought running through my mind was "what if dad found out".

Praying Means Paying Attention

I just completed a four year term on Oxford's city council. It was something I never thought I would do. My name is Lyn Pace, and I'm an ordained United Methodist minister from South Carolina and college chaplain at Oxford College of Emory University.

Stop holding on to your hurt and pride

Sometimes when I preach, I will write a sermon and never use it. God will change what I preach about at, what seems like, the last minute. This article is very much in that category. I had an article about Pontius Pilate and his role in the crucifixion. I thought it was a good article, a nice follow up to the Easter message. Apparently, it wasn't what I needed to write about. Maybe you will read it in the future, maybe you won't. I just want you to know where this is coming from. I want you know ...

Be a disciple

The disciples may not have comprehended much of what Jesus was saying around the table during the last Passover meal together, but they heard one thing and were, according to Mark's gospel, very grieved by it: "But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table." (Lk 22:21)

Potential House speaker speaks

According to Gallup, only 14 percent of Americans approve of the way Congress is handling its job. Does the problem lie within the issues or the process?

What's really important?

Think about it: your house is on fire, what do you take? You experience a tornado and when you return to the devastation; do you think you have a new sense of value for things?

“The Jesus I know…” finish the thought.

Would you say, He is kind, gentle, loving, forgiving, full of grace?"

We can do something…

My brothers and sisters, what good is it if people say they have faith but do nothing to show it? Claiming to have faith can't save anyone, can it? Imagine a brother or sister who is naked and never has enough food to eat. What if one of you said, "Go in peace! Stay warm! Have a nice meal!? " What good is it if you don't actually give them what their body needs? In the same way, faith is dead when it doesn't result in faithful activity. James 2:14-17 Common English Bible
