Ignoring Tornadoes

Written by Sam Whatley

Canadian Cecilia Wessels of Three Hills, Alberta was awakened from her nap on June 2, 2017, by her nine-year-old daughter warning her that something strange was in the sky. She went to the backyard to see a huge funnel cloud churning up dirt about a mile away. Picking up the camera, she snapped some photos of the tornado to send to her parents in South Africa. The photos showed something else. Her husband, Theunis, was in the backyard mowing the grass.

RRJ:  Growing up in a Christian home, you’ve known about Jesus for a long time, but when did you come to truly know Jesus?  

 

Laura:  I think this is a lifelong goal. Knowing Jesus is both simple and complex at the same time. I started really trying to learn more about Jesus and my faith in my late 20s. Many things have changed my perspective about my relationship with Christ: becoming a parent and truly understanding unconditional love; reading and studying about the life of Christ; doing personal inventory about my beliefs versus what the truth of the Bible says...these and many other things have brought me to the understanding that I know all I need to know-- that the gospel is a very simple message, but also understanding there truly is so much more to learn.

 

1 John 5:17: “All unrighteousness is sin.”

 

We live in a time when morals and values are no longer being determined by any fixed standard. Today’s morality is all about satisfying the desires of individuals based on their own fleshly yearnings. As our society sinks into this ever changing morass one wonders when will we hit bottom and things stabilize. Every bizarre behavior imaginable has an advocacy group pushing for its normalization and full acceptance. It seems that the more people involved in aberrant behavior and the louder they are about it that the only way to placate is to give them what they want. But what is wanted is not mere recognition but rather hearty approval of their behavior. Anything less is not tolerated and even deemed harmful and hateful.

Dave has Answers to Your Questions!

Written by Dave Ramsey

Skipping to the Altar

Q. My wife and I make good money, and our daughter’s college education is pretty much paid for through pre-paid tuition and scholarships. We just started your plan to get out of debt and take better control of our finances. When we get to Baby Step 5, which is saving for college, can we substitute that with saving for a wedding?

 

In a rush to find romantic love, we often find ourselves accentuating the good parts of our relationships while minimizing the bad. In hindsight, after the disaster, we often reflect and notice warning signs and feel stupid and vow that we’ll never be that person again. We look back and can clearly see how we were manipulated and hurt.   Then it happens…again.  As a therapist, I talk to many women and men who hope to not repeat the past.

Celebrating the Holy Spirit

Written by Kemi Searcy

I sat on my bed on the morning of June 5th, reminiscing on the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit during our church service the previous day. I felt the sensations of joy, love, and peace wrapped around me like a thick warm blanket, with the comforting weight of His glory. The worship experience was in itself really awesome as we sang, worshiped, and expressed adoration to the one true God. I could see the glory of the Lord on people’s faces, as tears ran down many cheeks.  It didn’t surprise me to see such an incredible level of glory, because the Holy Spirit has always graced us with His presence.
