Celebrating God's Word

Written by Bob Crittendon

Over 400 years ago, a group of theologians gathered at the request of King James I of England to craft an English translation of the Bible that would be available on a widespread basis. The King James Version has become one of the most influential books of all time, containing the truth of the Scriptures, and also certain phrases which have become part of the common English language. This year, we celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the culmination of that 7-year process to translate the Scriptures, resulting in what we know as the King James Bible, in 1611.

Comparing Yourself to Others

Written by Brenda Payne

Where do you feel insecure? How do you derive confidence? What do you use to measure yourself? Where do you find your value? Do you compare yourself to your mom, sister, co-worker or best friend? If so, how do you compare? As women, we tend to measure ourselves against each other. We examine and take note of our similarities and differences on a daily basis and in a myriad of areas. Think about a few areas where women tend to compare themselves to others.

Pastor's Perspective: 33 Years

Written by Vaughn Stafford

I had a friend challenge me the other day to consider doing “multiplication ministry” rather than “addition ministry.”  I will confess, between you and me, that I want the world to know Jesus and pray everyday that God will give me the opportunity to share His love with someone in a transformational way.  That zeal is wonderful, but I sometimes feel frustrated that I can’t be in more than one place at a time.  There are so many people, so many hurts and so many opportunities that no one person can touch everyone, at least not directly (unless you are Jesus)!

    Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture

    by David Murray

     

    There’s no doubt that life is difficult. We are finite creatures who encounter an infinite number of opportunities. This forces us to make constant decisions between better and best, between the millions of things we could do and the few we actually should do.

Faith at Work

  • Laura Dockery, Owner, LDD Consulting Art and Decor

    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.
