Maybe you have either heard it said or implied that people don’t attend church because it's full of hypocrites. Ignoring that claim for the moment, let’s try to answer the question, “What is a hypocrite?”

The things this generation takes for granted; previous generations would have found magical. Can you imagine what Caroline Ingalls (of Little House on the Prairie) would have thought of microwave ovens?

God, the creator of the universe, has given all people the best gift ever, CHRISTMAS! If there were no Christmas, there would be absolutely nothing. The light of the world came at Christmas, and my prayer is that you know Him personally.

As I think about the question, “What does faith look like in 2020?”, I have to say, “It ought to look like faith at any other time in life.” I know that our humanity gets in the way of our faith but it really shouldn’t.

So far, we have seen that developing Christian character begins with consecration. God sets us apart and we set ourselves apart for God. Next, because we have set our lives apart for God, we choose to cooperate with what He is doing in our lives.

Last time I shared that Christian character is developing the characteristics ofJesus. His was the only perfect life. The best of us throughout history have had character flaws—except Jesus. So, when Jesus saves us, He saves us completely—body, mind, and spirit. Our salvation has three tenses. When we are born again, our sins are forgiven.

It seems like I hear a lot of talk about the value of character. Whether in conversations, on TV, or in print, over the last few years, people seem to talk much about character. However, in observing our society, I can’t always tell that the talk is resulting in positive change for our culture. In addition, the definition of character is not consistent between those who tout its worth. Why the difference?

It is the day after Christmas, and I have noticed people already packing away the decorations. It reminds me of when I was a little boy, and our family had packed up all the Christmas decorations and returned them to the attic for storage.

The wonder of children at Christmas is legendary. For weeks the anticipation has been growing. Christmas baking, parties, and decorations have all whetted the appetite for the big event. Wherever they go, children see bright lights and colorful displays of candy canes, Santa Claus, and holiday greetings. But Christmas is so much more...

Never misjudge the significance of the little baby named Jesus. He is King of kings and Lord of Lords. Our eternity depends on Him.

Let everyday be thanksgiving! On Thursday, or Friday of this week, as you celebrate with family and friends, pause, reflect, and have a heart of Thanksgiving for God and His mercy, grace, blessings. Make sure your kids and family understand that we should be thankful for all that God has done and continues to do for us.

Why is discipleship important? It is important because Jesus commanded it. It is important because we need to be prepared to deal with a hostile culture. It is important because those who loveJesus need to be equipped. Discipleship matters.

Theology is one of those words, like doctrine, that seems elusive to most Christians. It is one of those subjects that pastors study in seminary. Right? Yes and no. Seminary students do get a healthy dose of all things theological, but theology should never be limited to the “professionals.” “Theology,” pure and simple, means the study of God. How can anyone ever understand God?

I have to continually lean on my life verse here Proverbs 3:5&6. I think the thing that is most meaningful or appropriately directive in this verse is that the point is made that we will not “understand” many things in life. The first thing we attempt to do in times that seem somewhat confusing or “against what we had planned” is to try to make sense of them.

When answering the question, “How to deal with pride?”, I am reminded that pride can be good, or bad. I believe it is good to take pride in your work. Be proud of your kids when they work hard and earn a good grade, but be careful not to let pride go to your head.
