Eric Metaxas Endorses God’s Story

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Eric Metaxas says of God’s Story in 66 Verses, “Here at BreakPoint and the Colson Center, we’ve been preaching about the need to communicate with our culture not only through facts and arguments, but also through stories, and that’s what Stan has pulled off in God’s Story in 66 Verses. It leads you through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, by focusing on verses that help you grasp what each book is about, and what the Bible as a whole is about.” Click on the link to hear him.

Obligation

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Barack Obama’s nominee for attorney general, supporting the president’s amnesty for illegals end-run around Congrress, says there is both “a right and an obligation to work” for anyone in this country. That will be news to the president, who gutted welfare reform and has overseen an explosion of people on welfare and the decline of the labor-force participation rate to historic lows.

When Jesus Says, ‘Don’t Follow Me’

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

By Jeff Strong

This year as I read and prayed through the Christmas story again and again, one dimension that I’d never noticed before caught my attention. The second chapters of both Luke’s and Matthew’s gospels reveal a theme of post-Christmas returning. After their respective epiphanies, we read that both the Magi and the shepherds returned. Returned to what? They returned to their vocations and their normal, everyday lives.

Living in the Bible

God’s Story: “Using It in Our Sunday School Class”

Monday, January 26th, 2015

By Edie Carter

If you didn’t grow up in church, it can be difficult to “catch up” on the Bible and all of its stories. Starting church as an adult can be intimidating. You don’t know the lingo. You don’t understand all the parables. You haven’t been memorizing verses your whole life. Even the songs are new. Although I went to church on and off my whole life, when Hubby and I really gave ourselves over to the Lord and started attending church every week, I felt behind. No one said anything, of course, but I so wanted to be familiar with the Bible and every word inside of it.

Barack Obama is really, really smart. I know, because he told me so during his State of the Union address.

It’s not PC to question the president’s intelligence. Maybe we should just question his sanity.

Deflategate

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

1. If deflating the footballs below the league minimum was no big deal that conveyed no unfair competitive advantage, then why did Tom Brady and the Patriots do it?

2. Sure, deflated footballs were not the difference in the conference championship game, which the Pats won 45-7. But do you really think this was the one and only time that the Patriots–who have a history of circumventing the rules–have done it? They played lots of close games where cheating could have made the difference.

3. “Everybody does it” is not a valid excuse, especially since “everybody” assuredly does not do it. Why do you think Don Shula called the New England coach Bill “Beli-cheat”?

4. Patriots supporters are complaining that the team is now in a no-win situation. If New England wins the Super Bowl, people will say it cheated; if it loses, they will say it lost because it wasn’t able to cheat. Too bad. Maybe that conundrum is a good reason not to cheat in the first place.

Lavished

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Merriam-Webster defines “lavish” thusly: “giving or using a large amount of something” and “having a very rich and expensive quality.” When someone lavishes something on you, it’s a good and generous thing.

This morning I read this in Ephesians 1:7-8: “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight” (emphasis added).

God has “lavished” upon His people “the riches of His grace.” Do you feel God’s lavishing in your life? Be thankful.
