Henderson’s Unsatisfying Goal April 6, 2020

It has been called “the sports moment of the century” It happened on September 28th 1972 when hockey player Paul Henderson scored for Team Canada against the powerhouse Team Russia. One would think this kind of achievement would have brought real fulfillment and happiness to Henderson, but it did not. He said later, “It was only after I gave my life to the Lord Jesus Christ and started living for Him that I found inner peace and tranquility…Being a Christian is vibrant, exciting and gives purpose and meaning to life.” The Bible promises this to all who sincerely acknowledge their fallen spiritual condition and invite Christ into their lives. Paul the Apostle was inspired to describe this transformation with the words “…being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The Book of Life April 3, 2020

“The Book of Life, a 2014 computer animated film, presents a story line that sweeps us into a fantastic presentation of three worlds, the land of the remembered, the land of the forgotten and the land of the living. The film probably gets its title from the Bible, which makes several references to “the book of life”. For example, one passage in the Book of Revelation, speaking of the city of God, Heaven, says, “Nothing impure will enter it nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the “Lamb’s Book of life.” We are told that “all have sinned”, and Jesus gave His life in our place. So when we ask Him for forgiveness and believe in Him, we become “children of God” and our names are then written in the “Book of Life.” I hope you’ll think about that today

True Gratitude April 2, 2020

“The most important factor in life is whether one takes life for granted or with gratitude.” Those are the words of one of the most original thinkers of the early twentieth century- G.K. Chesterton, a novelist, poet, critic and essayist. These are words of wisdom from a wise thoughtful man. We have so many things for which to be grateful. Our health, the beauty all around us, provision for our needs, friends, families, and more. But while we are giving thanks, let’s not forget our dear Heavenly Father, Who has given us the best gift of all- His Son, Jesus. John emphasized this in His gospel, writing, “…God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” And Paul encouraged people of his day with the words, “thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.” Indeed, gratitude is the best attitude.

Fake News April 1, 2020

“Falsehoods are being spread by people who want to get the most clicks, not the most truth.” Those are the words of Apple’s Chief Executive, Tim Cook. And it’s true, “fake news” is becoming a major problem in communication circles today. By contrast, how reassuring to know that God’s inspired Word, the Bible has stood the test of time. The Psalmist, referring to God the Father, “the entirety of Your Word is truth and everyone of Your righteous judgments endures forever.” Much is said in the Bible about truth, such as Jesus’ words, “you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free Jesus words reveal Who He is- the only way to heaven. He reminds us all, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Real Compassion March 31, 2020

This is a true story. The two women had never met. Recovering from surgery in a Maritime hospital, both experienced significant pain. Linda and Jane (not their real names.) were having a very bad night. In the wee hours of the morning, Linda felt a refreshing cool washcloth on her hot forehead. Opening her eyes, she saw her roommate, Jane, herself in pain, standing by her bed. Then Jane took Linda’s hand and prayed with her. In her suffering, Linda was deeply moved, as Jane exemplified Her Saviour. In doing so, she illustrated in Matthew’s gospel, “When He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them. And Paul wrote, “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. The caring “Janes” of this world are a blessing. But only the caring Saviour is able to change our lives.

Poor Rich Men and Women March 30, 2020

Jeff Bezos , believed to be one of the richest man in the world, recently purchased a large estate for 165 Million dollars. Cecil Rhodes, who lived from 1853 to 1902 was probably one of the world’s richest men of his day. A friend, General William Booth, Founder of the Salvation Army, once asked him- “Rhodes, are you a happy man?” “Me happy? Good heavens no.” Rhodes had discovered that rich men can be very poor. Jesus once rhetorically asked- “What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul? Are we ready to meet our Maker? We can be, because while “all have sinned” and “there is none righteous, no not one”, it is also true that “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ through Jesus Christ our Lord” for those who sincerely ask.

Scientific Facts March 27, 2020

Science is much revered in our day. Sometimes though, what passes as scientific fact is not fact at all. For example, the mythical Piltdown man, once embraced by scientists as the missing link between men and monkeys, is now known to be a hoax. Then there was the embarrassing Chicken-Dinosaur discovery in China in 1999, trumpeted as proof that birds evolved from dinosaurs. Later it too was proven to be a hoax, made up by a Chinese farmer. Even scientists, it seems, can be fooled. It is reported that Albert Einstein once said, “Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the universe.” John Milton said, “The end of all learning is to know God.” And Jesus our Lord, said, “You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. He also said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
