Mind your Mind – Daily Devotions with Jon Dyer – Christian Article

Since today is world thinking day, I thought I would write a small article on the importance of guarding our minds. Paul tells us in Romans 7:23 “But I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.” The mind is a battlefield, and we must “let His (Jesus) peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ…

Take The Time To Rest… – Healthy Mind Ministry – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); We live in a busy world that makes you feel irresponsible if you take a day off to rest. Our work week has consumed Sundays to make the non-stop selling of goods more important than what is actually “good” for us. Remember when we were younger and we were exploding with energy, that as we have grown older we often reflect on fondly, wondering where that energy went. It is no coincidence that as…

The Christian life is not about a set of religious rituals and going through the motions each Sunday. Instead, walking with Jesus is all about relationship. When we become a follower of Jesus, growing that relationship with Christ is the most important spiritual endeavor for us to pursue. All relationships have one ingredient that inspires growth – TIME.

What My Toddler Taught Me about Being a Fussy Eater! (Spiritually Speaking) – Christian Article

Do you know a fussy eater?  Maybe you are one. I couldn’t wait until my son, Timothy, was old enough to start eating solid food—even if solid food consisted of sloppy baby rice. Prior to that moment, I had endured months of him staring into my mouth every time I ate. He would look at me in such a way to show what he was thinking, “Why can’t I have some?” His big, brown eyes never failed to make me…

Pure Being vs. Divine Lordship – Christian Article

God’s transcendence is beyond our power to imagine it. But even to make that statement we must have in our minds some idea of what the term transcendence means and how it might apply to God.

Indeed, it appears to be part of the meaning of the very word God that he transcends…
