On March 29, 2020 my husband and I found out that we will be having a new addition to our family. Our local hospital confirmed that we have a baby on the way! Although this news came as a shock to us, we are equally as excited to meet our little one in several months. This news serves as a recollection for us that even in uncertainty, God is the certain counterpart. He is worthy to be praised. This post will encompass the important role parents play in planting the seed of salvation and why it is more valuable to focus on the eternal security of their children.
The tale of the Good Samaritan has been a Bible story many can quote or point out specific details. It is a parable Jesus used in response to a lawyer that had questioned Him about salvation and the law in Luke 10:25-37. What is the moral of this story and how does it apply to today, especially in the wake of the coronavirus? Both of these questions will be answered in this article.
You've read part one several months ago about five truths and lies about the Christian faith. Part 2 has arrived after much observation in the secular circle. As the Coronavirus still continues to spread and more people are evaluating their lives, there is an opportunity to hush lies about the Christian faith. Even though the virus is God's judgment on a fallen world, He has also permitted an open door to spread the news of salvation and what better time as now? This post will continue where part one left off a few months ago and expound about more myths and truths of the Christian faith.
God allows several trials to come upon His people and the earth and has been since the beginning of time. He allows trials to be discipline or to develop perseverance in His people. With the outbreak of the Coronavirus (or COVID-19), there are no new perils for the eternal God. All suffering He endured on earth and is familiar with every heartache. Some trials will be judgment while others are meant for testing. This post will cover Isaiah 43:2-3 with an introduction of the Gospel at the end.
God's right to rule is actually seen by His creation of the earth and other planets, space, animals, and humans in Genesis 1-2. This shows his eternal right to rule. Christ's genealogy through the Tribe of Judah shows His right as an heir due to familial ties. Jesus is a formal name, whereas Christ is a title bestowed upon Him, meaning "appointed one."
