The origin of the messiah is fascinating. His life, death and resurrection from the cross has perplexed humanity for centuries. I’ve read through the gospels a few times, yet this year I figured something out which I hadn’t realized before. The first person to hear about Jesus was his earthly mother Mary. Mary was no Taylor Swift. She was merely a child whose life was meant to be average. Mary grew up in a small town called Nazareth within Galilee. Like many young women in her day, Mary’s future was pretty much chosen for her. Her parents decided she’d merry … Continue reading Resolution Within the Nativity Story

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1st Corinthians 13:4-7 Since it’s Valentine’s Day or better yet the “Week of Love” A group of children at a local elementary school were asked what they thought love is. One boy said that love is difficult to explain. He’s exactly right. … Continue reading What is Love?
This passed week I have been studying the book of Esther. I’m looking to study certain aspects of the Bible one on one instead of just scrolling along. As Christian’s we should have a firm understanding of scripture and how God can perform many miracles. The book of Esther is from the Old Testament. An interesting fact from the book of Esther is that God is never mentioned. In addition, I also have a cousin named Esther which is cool. It covers the life of Esther who was a Jewish Queen in the time of the Achaemenid Empire which was the very first Persian Empire. … Continue reading Esther- How God Works Silently in Our Lives
For the last few months I’ve been, reading each book from the New Testament, starting with Matthew. Right now I’m on First Thessalonian’s. Whenever I read from my Bible I come across a certain verse which sticks out from the rest of the text. The verse will stick to my memory for a few weeks. While reading the Bible I enjoy researching the verse and figure out what God is, trying to tell me. There is more than one message to each verse. I also, enjoying blogging about Bible verses cause it’s a way to connect with fellow Christ followers and see … Continue reading 1st Thessalonians 5-11
