  • Deceptive Looks

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Apr 17, 2018
     | 62 views

    INTRODUCTION There is a Chinese story of a farmer who used an old horse to till his fields. One day, the horse escaped into the hills and when the farmer's neighbors sympathized with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer replied, "Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?"

  • The Answer Is No!

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Apr 17, 2018
     | 36 views

    Jesus is too much a threat to Rome, to the Jewish religious authorities, and to the crowds. They all reject his words of life and his invitation to walk in God’s kingdom.

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Mar 13, 2018
     | 630 views

    Jesus receives the title, “King of the Jews,” but he declares that his kingdom is not of this world and it is a kingdom of truth.. If it is not of this world, then where is it? And, where can we find the truth? Is God’s kingdom confined to heaven, or does

  • From Words To Actions

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Mar 13, 2018
     | 996 views

    It is one thing for Jesus to say that he loves his disciples, but he puts these words into action when he washes their feet. At the same time, Jesus demonstrates to us that love needs to go beyond words and is seen in service.

    INTRODUCTION Love is in the air—or at least the airwaves. A majority of songs on the stations that I listen to are songs about love. I suspect that the same can be said about the songs and stations to which you listen. Love is a BIG force in our lives, yet as one song suggests, “There’s just too ...read more

    I want you to think back—back to your childhood. And there was a game that I am certain you’ve all played.

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Dec 27, 2017
     | 1,003 views

    Most nativity scenes portray a cute scene of a happy little family, & friendly visitors. That's the way we like to think of it, but it's hardly realistic. When we pause at the manger with this image, we maybe forget that this infant was born to die.

    Jesus, the true light, came into the world--but no one recognized Him for who He truly was, nor was He received. But for all who have received Him, we now go out as Lights in His name, that others would recognize Jesus in us and receive Him who is coming!

    In 1929, The Saturday Evening Post ran an article on Albert Einstein. It was an interview with this brilliant man.
