Myth-Busters

Myth-busters How many wise men brought Baby Jesus gifts? If your answer was three, that would be consistent with tradition, but not The Bible. While the magi did bring three gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh (Matthew 2: 11), The Bible doesn’t actually say how many people were involved in delivering them. One thing I love and respect about my father and his preaching habits: he never expects anyone to take his word for anything he says, behind a pulpit or otherwise.

While there is a supernatural change, it resides in our hearts, and just as James suggested, those around us should see it in our lifestyle. “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” (James 2: 26 NIV) But is it possible to be perfect? Once we have accepted Christ …

Grow, Mature, Pass It On

  Six steps to finding God when you’re living with a crisis Step 6  Grow, Mature, Pass it On As we close out this series, I’d like to review the previous steps briefly. When we are in the midst of a time of crisis, intense grief, or a long-term trial, we may lose the sense of feeling God’s presence. Calming our mind is the first step in preparing to seek him. In Step 2, we discussed how unconfessed sin can block our sense of reciprocal communication, being heard and hearing God’s response to our prayers. It’s also important to keep …
