I Believe

I believe in the God the Father, maker of Heaven and Earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died, and was buried.
On the third day, He rose from the dead,
He ascended into Heaven,
and He sits at the right hand of God the Father, Almighty.
From there, He will judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the universal Church,
The fellowship of believers, the forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body, and everlasting life.
I also believe...

Dead or Alive

As we enter the season of Lent, the temptation is to treat it as a well-worn book--one to which we already know the ending. Indeed, we can quote most of it by the memories of year after year of thematic bible readings and preaching. So, as Christians, we already know the ending. We know that our Savior rose from the dead and is very much alive. I would like to pose a different question--one that I will be exploring in my own life this Lent. Am I alive?

A Mom's Lesson

My little boy would snuggle up in my lap for comfort while I breathed in his sweet little boy smell. Moments like these, though frequent, were fleeting. All too soon, he would slide down off my knee and explore the world around us...but he would always come back to the familiar, loving, and comforting embrace that was Mommy.

Beginning a New Chapter

Do not ever let the devil tell you that you can't accomplish what God has called you to do because you're not worthy and you're going to fail. Through Christ, you can do anything because He is worthy and His love never fails!
