A Deadly Snare

We live in a culture that is obsessed with sex. Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with images of scantily clad figures. You can barely turn on the television these days without coming across a program filled with sensuality or innuendo. God designed physical intimacy between husband and wife to be a beautiful thing within the proper boundary of marriage, but sin has a way of corrupting everything that the Lord intends for good. We see the destructive results all around us. Marriages have been destroyed, families have been torn apart, and young minds have been enslaved. God’s people must guard our hearts, because lust is a deadly snare.

If You Don’t Have Anything Good to Say…

Words are like a double-edged blade. They can accomplish great good, or unleash terrible evil. They can build up, or destroy. They can encourage, or crush a person’s spirit. Too often, we speak without thinking, blurting out anything and everything that enters our mind. Many friendships have been ruined because a thoughtless word was spoken.

Lazybones

What kind of worker are you? Are you industrious like the ant? Or do you have a difficult time getting motivated to roll out of bed on Monday morning? Have you ever called in sick, because you didn’t feel like going in that day? Have you pretended to be busy at your desk, while you were actually checking Facebook? Have you ever stretched your 15 minute break to a half hour? We all have days when we don’t feel like showing up, and we are tempted to ignore our responsibilities, but those lazy days can become a pattern, and a habit, and the way we approach life. When that happens, it creates problems for us and others.

1 John

Quite possibly one of the last books, in the New Testament, to be written, 1 John highlights the love of God shining forth in this world through His Son, Jesus Christ. Love is not merely an activity that He does, but God is love and proved it at the cross.

Choose Your Friends Wisely

The book of Proverbs gives us wise counsel on the kinds of friends we should seek, and the sort of crowd we ought to avoid, if we want to live godly lives. Whether we know it or not, our friends will influence the kind of person we will be, so choose wisely!

The King Who Cleaned House

During the reign of King Ahaz, the temple in Jerusalem had fallen into a state of disrepair. The sacred lamps were no longer burning, pagan idols littered the courtyards, eventually the doors were closed. When Hezekiah became king there was an urgent need for spiritual renewal. In 2 Chronicles 29:1-19 Hezekiah opened the doors of the temple, and cleaned house, bringing the people back to the Lord.
