From a mother's heart

"Three days later Mary, the mother of Jesus, was at a wedding feast in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus and his disciples had also been invited and were there. When the wine was all gone, Mary said to Jesus, "They don't have any more wine." Jesus replied, "Mother, my time hasn't yet come: You must not tell me what to do." Mary then said to the servants, "Do whatever Jesus tells you to do." John 2:1-5 (Contemporary English Version)

A clear and present reminder

Just a Thought: God's Word, prophetic or otherwise, is a clear and present reminder to us that He has all things under control. He has a plan both for our lives and all of eternity. There is to be a balance between knowing and studying what will one day happen with what we ought to do about today.

Precious moments

We have all seen them, those precious moments when a soldier surprises his wife or kids with a special unannounced visit home. How touching they are to see the emotion and joy that overcomes those who have been waiting so long for a glimpse, a touch and some time with their loved ones from whom they have been apart.

The good shepherd

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are ...

The good shepherd

Jesus said: I tell you for certain that I am the gate for the sheep. Everyone who came before me was a thief or a robber, and the sheep did not listen to any of them. I am the gate. All who come in through me will be saved. Through me they will come and go and find pasture. A thief comes only to rob, kill, and destroy. I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest. I am the good shepherd, and the good shepherd gives up his life for his sheep

Peace, be still ...

Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

Where is your heart today?

Where is your heart? When we say the pledge to the flag of the United States, we place our hand over our heart on the left side of our chest, is that where our heart is?

J. McCoy: Pass it on ...

Along the coast line of the Sea of Galilee lies a little stop in the road community in the middle of a very green farm area, called Kibbutz Ginosar. We stop to see the 2,000-year-old boat at the museum, but outside, like an overlooked simple lace collar on a beautiful dress, the mosaic benches line the sculptured lawn, making a welcoming place for people to sit as they soak in the fresh air and sunshine. A kibbutz is a place of growing, a farming area that sustains the people of the area. This is not the only kibbutz in ...

What is God seeing when he looks at you

Jesus gives six "woes" in Luke 11, I wonder if any of them would cause us to say, "Woe is me?"

Telling your story: a Christian duty

Beside the Sea of Galilee and up from Tiberias lies the Kibbutz Ginosar. A kibbutz is an area in Israel rich in farmland and vegetation. Kibbutz communities rely on agriculture for their income, and much of the area's fruits and vegetables come from these communities. The Kibbutz Ginosar is also known as the place for the "resurrection" of a 2000 year old fishing vessel which dates back to the first century. Known as the "Jesus boat," this boat was probably in use for many decades on the Sea of Galilee, and was the kind of boat that Jesus and ...

Grace Notes: "I told you so"

As childish as it sounds, you hear that refrain repeatedly in the Passion History, the story of Jesus' suffering and death that takes center stage during Lent.

About Faith: The gift of encouragement

A friend returned from a mission trip to Central America with a renewed sense of excitement about doing God's work. "I went down there to help other people," she said, "but I didn't expect that they would help me. I thought I had something to give, but what I got back was so much more."

About Faith: The strength to let go

As a child, I used to play a game of endurance with my friends. On the school playground, we would all hang from the bars of a "horizontal ladder" and see who could hang on the longest. Eventually, our hands would get tired, and one by one, we would drop to the ground. Last one hanging wins.

Grace Notes: This changes things! Part III

For the last two weeks now, we've been talking about the difference the Word of God makes in our hearts. It gives us the strength to face the storms of life, putting them all in the perspective of the eternity God has in store for us. Now, think about this. Those same promises are for everyone - and God wants to use you to share them.

About Faith: Liberal or Conservative?

In recent weeks, much space in the Religion section has been given to the subject of whether Jesus was a conservative or a liberal, and I feel compelled to add my two humble cents.

Yarbrough: Junior’s presidential pondering

Grace Notes: This changes things! Part II

No matter who you are, storms will come in your life. But as Jesus preaches in his Sermon on the Mount, he makes it clear that with his word, we handle those storms better. And the more we are in the word, the more firmly entrenched we become so we can hide from the storms in those offers and promises of God.

Dees: Was Jesus a Liberal?

One of the phrases that you will hear from time to time in the news media is, "Jesus was a liberal," meaning that Jesus was left winged in his political thought. Many political pundits will say that when one reads the New Testament, it is obvious that Jesus was socialistic in his thinking, and that if he walked the earth today, he would surely be among those on the political left.

Scharf: Do Not Worry!

"Is this stuff going on in Egypt a sign of the end of the world?" "If I lose my job, we'll never make it." "I'm worried that we'll lose our house." "What does all this mean for our kids?" "I can't take one more loss. I'll lose my mind!"
