Romans 5:3-5 When Life’s A Rusty Bucket

Hello Family!

Does life go swimmingly well for you? Or, are there times when you feel like your life is like a rusty bucket. It corrodes, becomes weaker, rusts, and has holes in it?

Everyone’s life is like a rusty bucket. There’s no escape. We all have to go through sufferings and pain in this world–including the Christian. Is there a purpose for this? Are we alone in our rusty buckets?

Ruth 1 Bethlehem; It’s Not Just For Christmas

Hi Family! I absolutely LOVE fall! And fall means that Christmas is not too far away. In fact, stores are beginning to display their Christmas wares.

Christmas mean Bethlehem. Christ Jesus is the REAL reason for the season. Yet, Bethlehem isn’t just for Christmas. Bethlehem is available all year round!

Psalm 119:83 Do You Ever Feel Like a Wineskin?

Hello Family!

This week we’re looking at —– Wine! Well, sort of. King David writes in Psalm 119:83 that he feels like a wineskin. That’s weird. But it has to do with the way the ancients used to make wine.

As Christians we still feel the heat and smoke from a culture that really doesn’t understand the One True God. When the Christian stands on God’s word and commandments, His statutes and His promises, then the Christian is going to be in the heat and smoke of things. When this happens the Christian continues in prayer, which is usually the first casualty when suffering occurs.
