"The Wonderful Counselor"

Isaiah 9:6



One of the tasks that confront every parent is the job of coming up with a name for their new baby. I remember that struggle. Some names are immediately dismissed because they don't sound right. Some names are dismissed because you associate them with certain people who are weird, people you don't like, or because the names have certain stereotypes that go with them.

The "Put Off - Put On" Dynamic.

The "Put Off - Put On" Dynamic.


. Christians often fail to change because they try to change solely by breaking bad habits. However, change that lasts will not take place until one replaces the bad habit with a godly habit. Ephesians 4:22-24 explains this as the "Principle of Replacement." This process of change is described in the Bible by the terms Put-Off, Renew, and Put-On. Christians are to Put Off the old sinful way of life, renew their mind with Biblical truth, and P...

Making Disappoinments Work for You

Let's face it- disappointments are rough. They hurt. I have had my share lately. Several big things I had hoped for have turned out for the worse. What is hardest is that they are stiuations in which people have let me down or betrayed me. Friendships lost. Associations ended. And not by my own choice.
