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.

When Some One Important is Rooting for You!

By On August 8, 2017

When someone tells you, they are rooting for you, we assume they’re interested in our well-being and success. It’s a nice feeling to know that someone is rooting for you. Some of us may not have been athletically-inclined; so, we never felt the rush of having a bunch of people screaming: “Rah! Rah! Rah! Go, boy, Go!” How’s this for…

God’s Impossibility

By On August 1, 2017

“I can’t believe it. I heard her with my own two ears. I’m not dreaming. She looked me straight in the eyes and told me she never, not even once, went out with him. I figured I was her best friend and that she would always tell me the truth – no matter what. But I guess she let me…

Take the Heat. Tell the Truth.

By On July 25, 2017

Under pressure don’t bend or collapse. If you know it’s right, stick with it. Take the heat. Micaiah, son of Imla, a contemporary of Elijah, shows up for one recorded Bible episode. Unlike Elijah, who gets lots of ink, Micaiah only makes a brief debut in Scriptures; but what an impressive performance in 1 Kings 22! The story is retold…

Paul’s Heart vs My Heart

By On July 18, 2017

How’s your heart? In romance, sometimes it flutters. In sorrow, it is broken. In trials, it is anxious and often very heavy. In carefree or frivolous moments, it can be lighthearted. When good news arrives, it becomes a happy heart. In the face of disappointment or shabby treatment, it can be bitter. Selfishness is the product of a stingy heart….

Christian Living isn’t a Piece of Cake

By On July 11, 2017

How are things today? When you first trusted Christ, did you think life would magically become a ‘piece of cake’? Were you expecting the Christian life to be ‘a breeze’ or ‘fun in the sun’ or ‘a bed of roses’ or a ‘stroll through the park’? Have you ever taken a ‘lazy river’ ride in the summer, relaxing on a…

Enthusiasm in the Heart

By On July 4, 2017

Restoration is a wonderful thing.  The Old Testament story of King Hezekiah’s reign is loaded with lessons. You can read it in 2 Chronicles 29 – 32. The 25-year-old monarch had his head screwed on right when he came to the throne. He started with the doors of the Lord’s house that had been closed. How can people properly worship…

Paul’s Parting Shot

By On June 27, 2017

‘Paul’s Parting Shot’ is probably a poor caption for this Bible Bite and somewhat misleading. There’s a certain smugness we can hardly conceal when we ‘have the last word’ in a heated debate. We may even gloat over the way we ended a tense discussion – our big parting shot! “Well, my last word to him before he stormed out…

The Golden Scepter of Grace

By On June 20, 2017

It was urgent. The situation was bleak. A trusted but treacherous servant of the King of Persia had concocted a scheme to annihilate the Jews in the Persian Empire. Haman advised the King that the Jews were, in fact, a hidden but very real threat to him and his kingdom. Haman’s hidden motive was to eliminate Mordecai, the Jew, who…

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…
