Sewing and Reaping Eternal Rewards

When I was a young girl, I remember visiting my grandma who did most of her sewing on an old Singer pedal machine because it was what she grew up with. In her day electricity wasn’t afforded for every home, so it was the peddle machine or sewing by hand. It was pure entertainment for me to sit on the floor and help her by pushing the foot-pedal up and down as fast as my...

Thankful

Jesus told a story about the time He was traveling along the border of Samaria and Galilee. “Ten men who had leprosy met Him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’ When He saw them, He said, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went, they were cleansed.” (Luke 17:12–14)You’d expect the entire group of ten to turn back and thank the Lord, but only one did.

What about us?” Jesus told him that “in the renewal of all things” (a reference to the Messianic Age with new heavens and a new earth), the twelve disciples would be well compensated with remarkable privileges. “But”, Jesus said, “many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.” (Matthew 19:30)....

Why Do Christians Suffer?

Many of our brothers and sisters in India are facing persecution at the hands of those who believe following Christ is a political statement that is an affront to the Hinduism of their nation. Our partners haven’t faced bodily harm, but they have felt the climate of their nation cool towards Christianity. Why does God allow His children to suffer, sometimes starvation and sickness, or other times, persecution? The Bible reveals at least three reasons why God’s children suffer.ONE: SATAN - Those who haven’t yet given their hearts to Christ tend to blame God for all the bad stuff in...
