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.

I Am a Pleaser of Sorts

By On June 13, 2017

Perhaps you applaud yourself and say: “Well, you may be a pleaser but I certainly am not! I get frustrated with people with that kind of a personality – always wanting and always trying to be a pleaser. They must have many insecurities. As far as I can figure out, they try to earn people’s approval and acceptance by being…

“Please, Please, Let Us Give.”

By On June 6, 2017

“I want to give her the biggest diamond I can afford. I don’t really care if I have to work a hundred hours overtime to buy it. I love her like crazy and I want to give her the best engagement ring I can possibly buy.” It’s called love. “I want to give My very own Son – even though…

Apologetics – Your God or Theirs?

By On May 30, 2017

Some have a dim view of apologetics. Some feel it’s not necessary to engage in any defense or argument to prove the reality of God to doubters. They feel that those who don’t believe should just accept the Bible without asking any questions. Preachers, some say, should not waste their time trying to present the evidence that God is God…

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…

Interviewing the King about Real Joy

By On April 19, 2017

Question: “Your Majesty, can I interrupt you just for a second? You seem to be on a roll. I noticed you writing with a smile on your face. Are you making an entry in your journal?” Answer: “As a matter of fact, I am. I enjoy poetry. It allows me to record my deepest thoughts – the musings of my…

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…
