Bible Bites

Bible Bites are intended for the Christian believer – one who 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.

Negative Influences in Our Lives

By On October 9, 2018

Others had impotent gods who were powerless to intervene. But these people had the only true and mighty God as their God. They had seen displays of His mighty power. When they were slaves in a foreign land He delivered them. When the Red Sea became an obstacle, their God simply cut a path through the waters, so they could…

Satan’s Bottom Line

By On October 2, 2018

Negotiations often reach a stage where one party becomes frustrated with the games being played. Someone eventually blurts out:  “Okay, give us your bottom line. What is the absolute minimum you want out of all this?”  That question wasn’t asked in Matthew 4, but had it been asked, the answer couldn’t have been clearer. In 2018, every Christian needs to know…

Behind-the-Scenes God

By On September 25, 2018

Do a word-search for ‘God’ in the book of Esther. Try searching for the word ‘Jehovah’ or ‘Lord’ in the little book. Your results will be zero. The word ‘God’ is nowhere to be found, yet God is everywhere in the book. There are events and circumstances recorded in the Bible where God is unmistakably present. You can’t miss Him…

Desensitized Believer

By On September 18, 2018

I’m almost embarrassed over spending so much of my life thinking that way. All that stuff seems so petty now. Once I thought those things were fundamental and important to God. I guess I’ve been liberated in my thinking. Set free! God has bigger things to worry about, and so do I. I’m finished with the small stuff. Did Lot…

Don’t Rush to Tell Others

By On September 11, 2018

“Guess what? Here’s my plan. I’m so excited. I had this great idea an hour ago and I just know I want to follow through on it. It will mean some humongous changes and it will take a great deal of effort – hey, but I’m not a wimp. I can handle it.” Maybe you’re not a wimp. Perhaps you…

Fan the Flame

By On September 4, 2018

What flame are you fanning these days? Is it a flame that will burn for eternal profit or is the potential flame you are trying to fire-up something that will burn out relatively quickly? How have you been spending your energies lately? What has been consuming your thought life? What gets you out of bed each morning? Where does your…

Is Following Jesus an Easy Path?

By On August 28, 2018

If Christianity appeals to you because it promises you an easy path of prosperity and a smooth sail through life, then you have been taken in a scam. If you’ve come across religious or mega-church pulpit cheerleaders telling you to jump on the Jesus bandwagon and you’ll be in for one life-long blast of a good time – steer clear…

Nepotism Alert!

By On August 22, 2018

Did papa Samuel think to himself something like this? I’m old and I must soon pass on the torch. I want to pick out strong leaders for Israel. I can see no more capable and gifted men than my two dear sons. Goodness gracious, my sons are good! Joel and Abiah (Abijah) are tops in my books. My little boys have become…

Home Again!

By On August 14, 2018

“Naomi, dear – we have to leave this place. Trusting God is great in theory, but when the crops have failed, and the grass is turning brown and the wells are going dry, common sense tells you – it’s time to make a move. We must pack our bags and leave.” How did the conversation unfold between Elimelech and Naomi…

Who’s on Your Team? 

By On August 7, 2018

“It was a great game but really, I’m terrible at games. My brain just works too slowly. I don’t retain facts very well and I’m hopeless at quick recall. But I’m not a solo-player. The other team would have slaughtered us, had Sam not been on our side. He’s amazing. We had the best! He’s a walking encyclopedia and faster…
