Triumph in Tragedy | Devotional by Max Lucado – Christian Article

Please open your Bible and read John 20:1-10 What do you say we have a chat about grave-clothes? Sound like fun? Sound like a cheery topic? Hardly. Make a list of depressing subjects, and burial garments is somewhere between IRS audits and long-term dental care. No one likes grave-clothes. No one discusses grave-clothes. Have you ever spiced up dinner-table chat with the question, “What are you planning to wear in your casket?” Most folks don’t discuss grave-clothes. The apostle John,…

Easter Devotional by Alec Niemi – Christian Article

The word “Hosanna” is used to express adoration, praise or joy. In the original Rabbinical Hebrew it is interpreted to mean ‘save, we pray’. As we read part of the Easter story we are reminded that as Jesus was entering Jerusalem, “a very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son…

Poured Out Like Water | Easter Devotional by Charles Spurgeon – Christian Article

“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint.” Psalm 22:14 Did heaven or Earth ever witness a sadder spectacle? In soul and body, our Lord felt Himself to be weak as water poured out on the ground. Placing of the cross in its socket shook Him with great violence, strained all His ligaments, pained every nerve, and more or less dislocated His bones. Burdened with His own weight, the glorious sufferer felt the strain…

God’s Blessings | Devotional by Alec Niemi – Christian Article

As a Pastor I quite often get requests to bless many things including homes, babies, jobs and even a child’s kitten once. From a Biblical perspective a blessing is an indication or a mark of God’s relationship with an individual or a select group of people. When a person or group is blessed it is receiving God’s grace upon them. When I do a prayer of blessing I always pray for the individual, be it in of the home, the…

What Matters to You Matters to God – Christian Article

The first miracle of Jesus was at a wedding—no small event.  For several days, there was gift-giving, speech making, food-eating, and wine-drinking.   Hospitality was a sacred duty  The absence of wine was a social embarrassment.  Mary asks her son to help, and he tells her that his “time has not yet come.” But he changed his plan to meet the needs of his friends. This miracle tells us that what matters to you matters to God. You are his child.…

The Trustworthy Character of God – Christian Article

Today, it is more…

When Average Men Follow Christ – Christian Article

Keep These Things and Ponder Them in Your Heart – Christian Article

“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19 (KJV) Mary, mother of our Lord Jesus, is noted in Scripture as loving God in at least three ways: Her memory (she “kept all these things“), her affections (she kept them “in her heart“), and her intellect (she “pondered them“). Her memory, affection, and understanding were all intently fascinated with the things which she heard. Friend, remember what you know about Jesus, and what He has…

The God Who Comforts | Devotional by Charles Stanley – Christian Article

Read: 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 Look up comfort in a dictionary and you’ll find a definition like “something that promotes a state of ease or provides freedom from pain and anxiety.” But according to God’s Word, when consolation is needed, the only true solution is the indwelling Holy Spirit. In Greek, He is called parakletos, which means “he who stands at one’s side; he who comes to one’s aid.” Believers don’t have to rely on outward remedies or distractions to ease…

Christ, Our Life | Devotional by Francis Frangipane – Christian Article

For many, Christianity is simply the religion into which they were born. For others, although Jesus is truly their Savior, their relationship with Him is hardly more than a history lesson, a study of what He did in the past. For those who truly love Him, however, Christ is Savior and more: He is their very life (Colossians 3:4). When Jesus is your life you cannot go on without Him. There is a story of a young man who, in…
