You're Under No Obligation

 

Q.Our son is about to graduate from law school. He took out a loan to cover the cost, but we’ve always been debt-free and have been paying on it to help him out while he finishes his studies. The balance on the loan right now is around $30,000. He has a job waiting for him after he graduates, so we’re thinking about telling him it will be his responsibility to finish paying off the loan at that point. Is that wrong?

Hope and the Angel Gabriel

Written by Rebecca Rose Morris

Four days before Christmas, I found myself at the Montgomery Humane Society adopting a beautiful little black puppy. 

I was finally ready after losing my beloved 11-year-old shelter dog to cancer last year. He was named Clarence, after the guardian angel inIt’s a Wonderful Life, because I truly believe that he was a gift from God to give me hope and comfort during an extremely difficult time in my life.

The Importance of Lineage

Written by Bob Crittendon

During my Advent series, 25: A Christ-mas Adventure,we walked through Scriptures that focused on reasons why we can worship Jesus.  One area concentrated on some of the prophecies written about the coming of Jesus.  The Bible says that He would be born of virgin, in the city of Bethlehem, from the tribe of Judah.

 

We get a clear picture of the lineage of Jesus from the Old Testament. It has been said that Jesus fulfilled over 300 prophecies written about Him. We can have certainty that He is our Messiah and, as Scripture foretold his first coming, so we can trust the Bible’s reliability on His second.

Are You Being Useful?

Written by Kemi Searcy

I eagerly am anticipating the good things 2018 has in store. January is often the time of reflection where we make resolutions. We may promise to improve the quality of our lives by eating right, exercising, stopping being grumpy mothers and wives, cutting off credit cards, seeking further education, etc.  All of these are excellent resolutions. We should want to be the best we can, striving to achieve levels of success in our lives.

RRJ:  Was there a specific moment in your life where you understood Jesus as Savior and Lord, or did that happen gradually?

 

Keon:  I was raised in church because my mom was a Christian and pianist at five different churches in Mississippi. (Back then, church was only open one Sunday a month.)

I was baptized at an early age, but it wasn’t until I was 17 and my friends invited me to their youth retreat called DiscipleNow, hosted by First Baptist Church, that I truly believed. The youth minister, Troy Amster, gave an invitation. During that moment I felt God’s presence like never before. I accepted Him in my heart and that’s when I drew closer to Him. I received Him as my Father, Savior and Lord.

A Bumping Noise

Written by Sam Whatley

 

One day my wife, Debi, and I were startled by a bumping noise coming from somewhere behind the clothes dryer. The noise would make repetitive bumps and then stop for a time and start back. I pulled the dryer out from the wall and disconnected the cord from the outlet.

    Essentialism

    by Greg McKeown

     

    Life is complicated. Life is full of responsibilities and opportunities, planned duties and serendipitous possibilities. There is so much we could do, but so little we can do. Many of us battle our whole lives to focus on those few, significant items that we should do must do, and yet so few of us ever feel like we are even nearly succeeding.
