New Year’s Spirituality: Be the Best You Can Be! (Mt.5:48)

Teresa O'Driscoll

Recently, I was reminded of how the Holy Spirit works within me, as I made my way along a frosty country footpath thinking of New Year's resolutions. Last year one of my resolutions was to make this regular walk. However, thanks to the Holy Spirit, soon spiritual benefits were added to physical as I inevitably pray as I go. This day it was Psalm 23 “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green...

Jesus Christ Is "More Than A Story"

DeBorrah K Ogans

Recently I’ve been spending quite a bit of time pondering what the world thinks of Jesus Christ. Just who does the world think he is ? At Christmas and Easter we see the world celebrate these days if they are just “social activities”. Parties, giving gifts, drinking etc. Some may even take a moment to think about the stories that surround these days, although often mixing Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny with the...

Understanding The Law Of Tithing

Ngozi Nwoke

What is tithing? Are we to tithe in this present dispensation? These and many more are the questions bugging the hearts of many Christians. And this article is aimed at answering these questions and throwing some light on this spiritual law of tithing. And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S. It is holy to the LORD. And concerning the tithe of the herd or of the...

Yielding to God While Wielding Your Faith

Amy Walker

Have you ever found yourself in prayer withholding requests from God because you believed it was off-limits? Maybe you thought that God couldn't’t be bothered with it. Perhaps you had made the request so many times before without result that you figure God is determined to ignore you on that point. You may think the issue is too big, too small, too complicated, too overwhelming or too unworthy. Could it be that you have not...

Joshua ben Joseph

Richard Revelstoke

Joshua ben Joseph was a very remarkable man. Born into a working class family, he came from the village of Nazareth whose liberal-leaning residents gave rise to the saying, can any good come out of Nazareth? The religious leaders saw Nazareth as a morally loose and unruly town. Nazareth was a tiny place nestled in a small valley surrounded by low hills, a place of such little consequence that it is hardly mentioned in historical...

Praying for Revival

Marijo Phelps

The following are things the Lord has laid on my heart (for prayer) regarding revival in our Body of Believers @ Dayspring Christian Fellowship. We are to worship Father, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit not the gifts of the Spirit (I do not think we do) but we may certainly ask for and desire the gifts. 1 Corinthians 14 Gifts of Prophecy and Tongues 1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire...

Why 25 December??

Bart

I would think that most Christians know Jesus was not born on 25 December. Reading about the birth of Jesus from Luke 2:1-8 along with doing a little historical research we find that the taxation ordered by Caesar Augustus would have been given sometime after harvest and before the rainy season prior to winter. This would place the birth of Jesus around August/September. To cut down the length of this article I will spare you the...

I was ALMOST perfect! How are you?

Jim Reynolds

"Our sufficiency is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant -- 2 Cor. 3:5. In Greek, the words translated "sufficiency" and "competent" are from the same root. Our qualifications to be "ministers of the new covenant" are met by God. This begins to answer our seemingly ever present fear of failure. We do not become sufficient because of our efforts. God makes us...

Israel's History at a Glance

Lance Ponder

Someone recently asked me in an email if Israel existed at the time of Jesus. This is a very interesting question because the answer is, technically... no. Since I wasn't sure why this person was asking it seemed that a brief history and explanation was in order. I thought this might make an interesting post here since my experience is that many people don't really understand the flow of Israel's history very well. It is...
