Refuse to be Distracted

Written by Kemi Searcy

 

There is a billboard between my house and my place of work that reads, “Don’t drive distracted.” I have to admit that the billboard reminds me of what happened a few years back. I was driving to meet a friend for lunch one sunny day when I suddenly remembered an important phone call I had forgotten to make. I immediately stretched to reach my back seat where I had left my cell phone. I took my eyes off the road for just a few seconds. Immediately I heard a loud bang; I had crashed into the car in front of me. My truck was bashed in, and the car I hit badly damaged. Thank God no one was hurt physically, but the damage to my wallet was ginormous.

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.

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?

    Sipping Saltwater

    by Steve Hoppe

     

    Is there any sin we commit more but admit less than the sin of idolatry? As people who have knowingly and willingly deserted the one true God, we turn our hearts this way and that to find the satisfaction we are meant to find in him alone. We try first one thing and then the other yet never find our thirst assuaged. It is not until we rest in Him that we find true rest. It is not until we are satisfied in him that we find true satisfaction. Idolatry is the curse of all mankind.

Faith at Work

  • Dr. Den Trumbull, Pediatrician, Pediatric Healthcare

    RRJ:  You grew up knowing who Jesus was, but as a teen you say you saw Him in a different light.  What would you say brought you to this awareness?

     

    Dr. Trumbull:  Although I knew about Jesus, I didn’t know him personally.  In high school, I attended a summer camp with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and heard the late Dallas Cowboys Football Coach Tom Landry speak about his relationship with Christ.  It was then that I realized my sinful nature and my need for a Savior.
