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.

Flourishing and Growing Luxuriantly

By On March 13, 2018

Flourishing and leafing. It sure sounds like life! There’s something refreshing and very alive about a plant-stalk budding and breaking out into leaves. It may have just been a stem and stalk for quite a while; but then, a few little tender leaves break out of buds, followed, perhaps, by some blossoms appearing. For those with green thumbs – this…

Applying the Salt Today

By On March 6, 2018

One recent study estimates that 2.3 million people around the world die every year because of too much salt. Research says adults in North America ingest, on average, nearly 4,000 mg of sodium every day. That far exceeds the recommended upper limit of 2,400 mg of salt daily. But really, your daily salt intake is not the primary focus of…

The Galatian Lists

By On February 27, 2018

Have you ever been excited over seeing your name on a special list – such as a High School Honours List or maybe the Dean’s List at university? Do you think billionaires get excited when their name appears in Forbes annual listing of billionaires? How does an author feel when they see their name on the Best Seller’s List? When…

Showcasing Amazing Grace

By On February 20, 2018

Most who came through her doors were lacking morally pure intentions. Her dark business was prostitution and her life revolved around this trade. Day after day she sold herself to men who sacrificed their character and jeopardized their reputation for a moment of sinful pleasure. Sheepishly, with guilt, her clients left her house with their heads down, trying not to…

What’s it Like Being a Priest?

By On February 13, 2018

No, you haven’t even attended, let alone graduated from a seminary. You haven’t done the eight years of study required after high school. You haven’t studied philosophy, nor have you taken courses in dogmatic, moral and pastoral theology. You may know very little about church history or canon law and even less about homiletics. You have never officiated at a…

Christian, Grow Up!

By On February 6, 2018

Have you ever felt like telling someone: “Give me a break! Don’t be so infantile. Smarten up. Would you please grow up!”  We usually issue such a snarky scolding out of exasperation, in the energy of our wicked flesh. But, really – are you frustrated or annoyed with someone’s behaviour or attitude? Sometimes what we see in others, we fail…

The Storm Calmer

By On January 30, 2018

Have you heard of storm-chasers? They are people who travel thousands of kilometers hoping to witness a bad storm. The thrill of their life is to see a violent weather storm. Hurricanes, lightening storms, and even hailstorms are exciting for them; but the most thrilling storm of all is the destructive tornado. It is every storm-chaser’s dream. Storm-chasers will camp-out…

On the Platter!

By On January 23, 2018

Have you ever caved into pressure and acted against your better judgment? You didn’t expect to actually do it or go there or get involved; but, in the heat of the moment, you gave in.  Now you have regrets and a bad conscience! Even though you didn’t deliberately set clear boundaries for yourself, you figured you’d be able to handle…

Who’s Reigning in Your Life in 2018?

By On January 16, 2018

Discontented Jew: “Everybody else has one. It’s cool. They get to see their king riding the palace chariot in parades. I bet the local yokels feel good when they see their king walking on the royal red carpet, with the scepter in his hand and that big crown on his head. I imagine I would get goosebumps seeing our king…

Ready to Die

By On January 9, 2018

The pleading was strong. The pressure was intense. Their tears said it all. Those who loved and respected the Apostle Paul did not want him to travel to Jerusalem. They knew it would probably be the beginning of the end for him. Even his companions, like Luke, travelling with him, tried to dissuade him from going to Jerusalem. Then Paul…
