Bible Bites

A Christian believer loves the Lord Jesus Christ. We didn’t always love Him. Every true Christian has a ‘past’ – a time in our lives when we kept Christ on the outside. What was the turn-around point in our lives? It was the moment we personally placed our trust in Jesus Christ to save us from our sins and to rescue us from a dark eternity. The Christian life starts with a moment of conversion, a salvation experience.

From that point forward, a genuine believer has an inner desire to please, honor and obey Christ each day of our lives. A Christian is not perfect, but we love, worship and live for One who is – Christ!

We all rely on food for strength and growth. Physically, if we don’t eat every day we become weak. A Christian must have spiritual food every day or we become weak spiritually. A Christian reads their Bible to be strengthened. It is a daily MUST if we are going to grow in Christ.

Bible Bites are just that – bites, small bites, once a week. We are glad you are reading the bites in this section of our website, but remember, they are not full meals. Think of them as little spiritual snacks between the Table Meals with your own Bible. Make sure your daily spiritual diet consists of reading your Bible and praying each day.

If you have any questions or comments, we would love to hear from you.

Hating a Christian

By On May 23, 2017

Ouch! Hate is a very strong word. Tone it down a bit. Try: ‘disliking your brother’. Or even ‘take him or leave him’ – a feeling of mere ambivalence towards your Christian brother. Wouldn’t that be better than that awful word ‘hate’? The trouble is – nothing less than loving our brother or sister in Christ is acceptable to God….

Threats or Opportunities?

By On May 16, 2017

Have you ever wondered how people could look at the same thing but see something totally different? Why do weather forecasters tell you there’s a 30% chance of rain tomorrow? Why don’t they say a 70% chance of radiant sunshine? Twelve influential men were selected to conduct a SWOT analysis of the new territory to be inhabited. They were assigned…

Purpose Driven Christian

By On May 9, 2017

Have you ever sighed and said: “What’s the use? Why bother? What’s the purpose? What good will it do anyway?”  Most of us have been there at some point. It’s not exactly a high time on our journey home to Heaven. You wouldn’t call them great days or bright ones either. Maybe you’re there today. When we lose our sense…

Feeling the Wind is One Thing

By On April 25, 2017

How could you not feel it! The gale is so strong – it seems to be hurricane force. It’s taking every ounce of energy you have, to keep on walking. In fact, it seems the sheer velocity of the wind is pushing you backwards, as you try to step forward! It is exhausting. What’s happening? Why are you feeling this…

Failing Again:  The Struggle with Repeat Sins

By On April 11, 2017

Sometimes we cry to the Lord and say: “With Your help I will never do that again.”  Sadly, we end up repeating the same sin and find ourselves confessing the failure to the Lord again with the same resolve: “Lord, I am truly sorry. Help me to glorify Your Name and not dishonor it openly or secretly.”  Sometimes the cycle…

Glad to Have a Christian Onboard

By On April 10, 2017

The people in the lunch room are annoyed with you because they want to tell a dirty joke and you’re sitting right there. Your presence makes them uncomfortable and awkward. On another occasion, something happened that upset them. They wanted to scream out or as a minimum, mutter a string of swear words, but you were close by and they…

Self Mastery

By On April 4, 2017

 Ah, I don’t feel like it today. I think I’ll laze around and do not much of anything. I can’t be bothered. You may call me a slacker but really, I find it takes too much effort. It’s easier just to chill and do your own thing. Maybe I give-in to myself too much.” Achievements and success rarely fall into…
