God Delight’s In You

That’s right you read the title of my blog right. God does in fact delight in you. I know sometimes it’s hard to imagine or comprehend but He does.

This post has been inspired by a video I watched from Steven Bancarz about this very subject.

I actually planned on writing with a much more serious tone this week on an entirely different subject but God had different plans. I want you to watch this video, I know its 30 minutes but it is worth it.

It’s incredible when you think about it, truly it is. It’s message I needed to hear right now going into this week.

Here is a link to some Bible verses that helped me today.

Yes God Wants You In Church

Throwback Thursday Post from just last year but I decided to share it because of the importance of the topic.

In just a year I have gotten heavily involved in my church and it really has been a huge blessing.

Also here is a video to add to the blog entry.

The Good Word

I see a lot of people point out reasons they don’t go to church and criticize the problems at churches. They say things like, “The Church isn’t a building, I am the church.”

While there is truth to that the Bible is clear God wants us to go to an actual church building. Because He wants us to have fellowship for the benefit of ourselves and those around us.

Churches also provide services to the community, they feed the hungry, clothe those who are without, provide financial support to people in need, not to mention many, many other things.

There is a huge benefit to churches in the world.

Satan is the accuser, he is the one putting these thoughts of the negative sides of some churches in your heads.

He wants you weakened, he wants the church weakened because he knows he has no power over a church truly…

It Always Comes Back to Jesus

Throwback Thursday Post From July 2020

The Good Word

In the three faiths of Abraham there is one major difference and that is Jesus.

The Jews reject Jesus as their Messiah.

The Muslims reject Jesus as the Son of God.

We Christians believe Jesus to be who He says He is.

That’s the difference.

We believe Him. We do not reject what He said like many Jews do. We don’t believe the words of men from hundreds of years after Jesus left the Earth and returned to the Father.

We believe Jesus Himself and the writings of those who knew Him.

He is the Son of God because He says He is.

He is God because He says He is.

Before Abraham Was, I Am

“48 The Jews answered him, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?” 49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and…

Something Simple But Serious To Think About

Many people make their Christianity a part of who they’re it is one of their personality traits, something they label themselves as.

This is the incorrect way of Christian life. Your Christianity at that point becomes just another thing about you and not about God and how He molds you.

The correct way of Christian life is that every part of you reflects your Christianity, your personality traits, character traits, what you do and who you’re is because of your Christian faith.

Let everything about you be the way that is because you’re a Christian.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris

New Year, New Life with God

Throwback Thursday New Year’s Post from 2019

The Good Word

Happy New Year everyone!

It is a New Year that means for many it’s a new opportunity to change their lives. We hype this time of the year up as if it is magical but in reality many fail in their resolutions. I stopped doing New Year’s resolutions as I always failed them and it made the New Year very stressful. They’re just not for me, if they are for you then great, I wish you luck and I’ll be praying for you.

Many may mock you but it is because they’re stuck in their ways and wish they could change.

The truth is though, you all out there can be successful in change, even the ones that scoff and mock. Just because you failed in the past doesn’t mean you will fail today.

The best first step is to go to God.

With God He can make all things…

New Year 2022

It’s a new year and it is also a snow day in my town. We don’t get many snow days anymore where I live. Nice to have a big one especially since the Christmas decorations are still out.

Any who, I hope everyone had a nice week now it’s time to focus on the topic at hand.

One of the common themes of my blog is “The World vs. God”. With the new year being here the world is trying to set goals and resolutions for 2022. It’s all about how to make you better and make your life better. Many make these goals and fail quickly, leading to them having the same new goals and resolutions the following year.

I wrote before that you don’t need a new year just a new moment with God.

And that’s true, furthermore though God makes all things new and He can make you new as well. If we focus on Him, trust in Him and submit to Him than “our goals” can instead become about becoming the person God wants us to be instead of the person we want to be.

Have a Blessed Year,
Chris

PS-The blog I just wrote was directed at believers but the truth is if you’re out there reading this and our not a Christian, I want to tell you something even better than a new life from goals and resolutions.

I want to tell you about the new life and only true new life which can be found in Jesus Christ.

The truth is nothing in or on this world can truly make you a new person, you will always have your past and no matter what you do you cannot fully make up for sins and transgressions.

The only hope you have to a truly new life and new beginning is if you give your life to Jesus Christ.

He died for your sins and then rose from the dead so whoever believes in Him can have eternal life. Surrender your life and have faith in God, for it is your only way to be saved and to be truly a new person.

Monday – Isaiah 43:1-7

Tuesday – Psalm 29

Wednesday – Acts 8:14-17

Thursday – Luke 3:15-17, 21-22 

Who, What, Where, When and Why

Throwback Thursday Post from 2019

The Good Word

Do you remember in school being taught the 5 W’s? That when you’re studying anything you should understand the Who, What, Where, When and Why of the topic?

These crucial questions should be answered when researching anything, yet how often do we forget to do this in our walk with the Lord? How often do we read a Bible verse than use it in conversation or even to try to win an argument but really have never studied the verse or in some cases even read the entire chapter?

It is crucial to understand who the Bible was referencing or what the story was about, why it was occurring or why God said or did what He did, to know what the context of what you’re reading is, know where this part of the Bible took place and when. Know every detail about what is going on.

Remember the Bible…

Bonus In The Christmas Series: 12 Days of Christmas

First off, I just want to say I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

Many people end their Christmas celebrating right after Christmas or at the latest New Year’s Day.

However traditionally Christmas is just starting on Christmas Day.

It is the first day of 12 days of Christmas with the final day being the Eve of the Epiphany.

Now I always make it clear, I am not an expert on the Bible or Church history. I write about things as I learn them.

So rather than me explaining some of the important post-Christmas dates. I am going to provide some links to some articles from a site called “Why Christmas”.

Have a Blessed Week and Happy New Year!
Chris
