The Atonement of Christ is the key to who we are as followers of Christ - Sin puts us at war with God, but God, knowing that we could do nothing about it sent His Son to be our Atonement!

    “Personal Sin”
    "Personal Sin"--Over the last two weeks we have looked at what We Believe about sin - Sin has been part of humanity's existence since the beginning and yet the miracle is that God has been at work throughout history to deal with this issue.

    While sin isn't an easy topic to discuss in this day and time, it is relevant to the world that we live in.  Listen to this take on Original Sin as we continue to discuss what "We Believe!"

The Holy Spirit and Power

I am struck once again by the power of God.  I am amazed at the fact that God chooses to work in my life – me – someone who is so full of “so little.”  I am amazed that God uses me.  I am overwhelmed when He works in me, with me, and maybe more than anything else through me.  God showed me again yesterday how much He loves me and that the dreams that He has put into my life are SO VERY DEPENDENT UPON HIM AND NOT ME!  I get into trouble when I forget that and when I get “stuck” in my abilities; my resources; my plans.  God says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'”  Jeremiah 29:11.  Now when it is “me” interpreting that I look at and LOVE the word “prosper” and I forget that God’s idea of “prosper” is to bless me with His presence and use His power to work through me, rather than to make my life a bed of roses; He isn’t here to make my day better or to take away all of my problems; He is here to use me to touch others and make an eternal difference through my obedience and willingness in the lives of others.  His plans are the best and when I listen to Him and trust Him regardless of what I might feel, then watch out, God is about to do something incredible.  Let me share a simple example that happened this morning.



I don’t have much to say this morning, but I am saddened by what has happened over the last few hours that affect our nation and affects our community here in Lincoln County.  An upstanding member of our community and his son were both killed in a private airplane crash last night here at Sierra Blanca airport.  This following the death of another member of our community, a young man in his 30’s who died of an apparent heart attack last week.  Then news out of Washington D.C. this morning that a lone gunman shot at and hit at least 3 people who were out on a baseball field practicing for a friendly game of ball between Republicans and Democrats.  It would be foolish to hypothesize about the reasons for the shooting because we know almost nothing, only the name of the shooter, and yet already on Facebook I’ve seen someone post, blaming one organization, not knowing anything about this.  And all the while the levels of anger, hatred, vile words being thrown around and used to denigrate people who don’t think, act or speak like we think, feeling that we somehow have the right to treat fellow human beings with such disrespect.  I an saddened by what we have come to accept and especially by those who call themselves followers of Christ!


As Fair as the Moon

Last night just before we went to bed we took the dog out for a walk.  We had planned to do it earlier in the evening and walk around our circle, but the rain was cascading down at that point and we didn’t dare to venture out, not just  because of the rain, but because of the lightening as well.  Anyway, when we took the dog out to walk before he went into his kennel for the night, I noticed immediately how bright it was outside.  The moon was bright and brilliant last night and when we got away from the lights that line our driveway the moon illuminated the landscape beautifully.  I woke up once during the night and the light of the moon was shining on the floor beside my bed.  It is amazing how bright the light of the moon is in the darkness.  But what is more amazing to me than that is “why” the moon is so bright!
