Why is it that those that know the most and have the most are the most gloomy? The irony is that God does not say that we should avoid knowledge and wealth. He does say that we should worship God alone and not worship false gods like intellect and wealth.
What follows is an article I read this week that I cannot summarize. It is a must read if you have children under age 34 who have become non-believers. This hits home because I am painfully aware of the problem personally and the article gives me a bit of comfort knowing my kids are not that unusual. Read it and continue your prayers for our children.
Jesus spent an enormous amount of His time praying to the Father. He said that His mission on earth was to please His Father. We are also here to please the Father…in everything that we do and say, in every moment of every day.
Scripture makes it clear that God predestined all who are saved. That may make you feel uncomfortable and uneasy...
Recent statistics claim that the average income in America is $65,000. Yet there is more discontent in America today than during the Great Depression of the 30’s! Pretty hard to believe when you see a low unemployment and the booming economy of the U.S. Why?
You may have noticed that I have been posing questions for weeks that you need to ask yourself in order for you to be aware of the answers to tough questions kids ask us…even the older kids. These questions mark the core of a Godly Christian Legacy. Underlying all the questions is the reality of God’s love for us and what that means. Through that love, God frees us.
One of the greatest barriers to understanding the love of Jesus is shame.
Matthew says that you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer if you believe. 1 John 5 says that if you ask anything according to His will He hears us. So, in praying for one another, we are simply to pray in faith says the Bible. “But the true question,” says Alister Begg, “is faith in what?”
I know, this is an offensive statement/question to most Christians, but it is what many of our children believe.
You might want to call compassion the “wallpaper of Jesus’ soul” and the “contour of His heart”. Living the life in the Spirit that we share with our children is the most important Legacy we can leave, but explaining it is not easy.
