God provides a peacemaking prototype
Cain murdered Abel out of anger. Joseph's brothers threw him in a pit and sold him as a slave out of jealousy. Jacob fled from Esau out of fear. Judas Iscariot hung himself out of guilt and shame. Scriptures pages are full of examples of people handling conflict poorly for the same...

Seeing in the light reveals spiritual truth
Woody Allen quipped, "I'm afraid of the dark and suspicious of the light." Maybe you've rolled over a rock or log that had been laying on the ground for a long time and seen the assortment of critters scatter from under their earthy habitat, scurrying in a panic-stricken frenzy...

Message from heaven is repentance
If you were to hear a message from heaven, what would you expect it to say? Would it say, "Love!" or "Go to church!" or "You're doing great!" or "Behave"? A lot of people have different opinions of the message our society needs, but the message God sent through John the Baptist...

Eternal truths in a post-modern world
Have you ever wondered if there is an answer to life? Have you ever pondered where that key to making life 'work' could be found? What makes a life a success or failure? Is success a formula made of bank account numbers? Is it just surviving any given day? Is life 'working' when you...

How Many Ways to the Father?
If you were to take a road trip to Canada, which route would you take? I've heard people describe their plan on getting to heaven like a road trip to Canada: there's this large destination, and as long as you keep north, you can't go wrong. You can pick your route according to...

Following God as a way of life
Psalm 119:113-120 describes two 'ways of life:' those who live their lives in accordance with what they read in God's word, and those that reject God's principles and laws in favor of their own sinful preferences.

God shows up for those who look to him
"I lift up my eyes to the hills — where does my help come from?" Psalm 121:1 People expect different things from God. Some view him as a magic lamp to rub when they need a genie; some hang a cross from their keychain for good luck like a rabbit's foot, others never talk to...

Jesus claimed to be the Christ, the Son of God, but people didn't scoff at him. They didn't all accept his claims of deity but Jesus teachings and miracles were SO powerful that the people were asking, who Is this? Is he Elijah? Is he Moses? Is he a special prophet? Is he the Christ,...

God’s Not Dead movie review
Jake Heppner, Southbrook Baptist Church God's Not Dead was one of the most enjoyable and inspirational Christian movies my family has ever seen. I'm no credible critic of lighting, script or acting, but if you see this movie you'll appreciate recognizable actors, quality filming...
