The Kilo has Changed! April 22, 2019

In November 2018, scientists from over 60 countries approved a new definition for the kilogram. Since the 19th century, the definition of the kilo was based on a physical object, a cylinder in Sevres France, which weighed exactly one kilo. Scientists now redefine the kilogram by tying it to something called Planck’s constant, the smallest possible unity of energy. This will apply to research that depends on meticulous measurement. Though earthly standards may change, the standard of truth as given in the Bible does not change, because God stated, “I am the Lord I change not.” Truth is absolute, not relative. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”

Jesus is Alive! April 19, 2019

Dr. Simon Greenleaf was the Royal Professor of Law at Harvard University. He was one of the greatest legal minds that ever lived. He wrote the famous legal volume, “A Treatise on the Law of Evidence.” He was also an atheist and believed the resurrection of Christ was a hoax, so he decided to expose what he called the “myth of the Resurrection.” But after thoroughly examining the evidence for the resurrection, Dr. Greenleaf came to the exact opposite conclusion! He wrote, “according to the jurisdiction of legal evidence the resurrection of Jesus Christ was the best supported event in all of history!” As the angel said to the disciples who were seeking Christ’s body, “You seek Jesus Who was crucified. He is not here. He has risen.”

The Greatest Lighthouse April 17, 2019

Many Maritime lighthouses have been preserved and will continue to be a part of our future as well as part of our past. They have saved many from shipwreck. Just as lighthouses dispel darkness and give guidance, Jesus, the Light of the world, assures us that anyone who follows Him will not walk in darkness. John’s gospel records Jesus’ own words, “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in me should not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John was also inspired to write “But as many as received Him, (Christ), to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

An act of Grace! April 15, 2019

In Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, a man saw a meterman nearing another person’s parked car with an expired meter. He sprinted ahead and popped some money into the meter. It was his good deed for the day. This act was seen by some as a picture of the biblical teaching of law and grace. Because we have all broken God’s law, and since “the wages of sin is death”, His holiness demands a response on our part. But we are incapable of satisfying God’s justice. Thankfully, the love of the heavenly Father provides that satisfaction. John chapter three, verse 16 tells us how: “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus explained, that He had come that we might have life…”

Communication April 12, 2019

“We communicate via text messages and e-mails, gas up with credit cards, make deposits online and buy over the internet. We can go through a day and never say “hello” to anyone. These are the words of author Max Lucado in his book “Outlive Your Life.” Without doubt, technology is important in our relationships, but we must also remember to talk to the most important Person in the world, our Maker. Happily, we are not put on hold when we call Him. He invites us to “call unto me and I will answer you.” When we ask the good Lord for forgiveness and desire to become His children, we only need this simple prayer—“God, be merciful to me a sinner.” When we sincerely pray that prayer, He has promised, “Whoever comes to me I will never cast out.”

Wanting the Father Near April 10, 2019

A little boy loved his father very much and was sad when he was away from home. One day as he looked at his Dad’s picture, he said, “Mommy, I wish Daddy would come out of that picture frame.” And sometimes when life overwhelms us and we feel sad and lonely, we wish that our Heavenly Father was near at hand. Thankfully, He has promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” At such times we can also draw comfort from promises written in the Bible, God’s inspired Word, assuring us that the Heavenly Father, is “a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” One beautiful gospel song asks, “Is your burden heavy as you bear it all alone? Then answers, “Reach out to Jesus, He’s reaching out to you.”

Promises, Promises, Promises April 8, 2019

There will be a federal election this year. We will be bombarded with lots of promises concerning infrastructure, education and health care. Unfortunately, many of those promises will not be kept. Not so with our Heavenly Father. The Psalmist declares, “The Lord is faithful to all His promises.” And Joshua, was inspired by God to add, “Not a word has failed of any good thing which the Lord has spoken.” Many of His promises concern the next life. Paul, in the book of Romans wrote, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”
