Bible Bites

Bible Bites are intended for the Christian believer – one who loves the Lord Jesus Christ. We didn’t always love Him. Every true Christian has a ‘past’ – a time in our lives when we kept Christ on the outside. What was the turn-around point in our lives? It was the moment we personally placed our trust in Jesus Christ to save us from our sins and to rescue us from a dark eternity. The Christian life starts with a moment of conversion, a salvation experience.

From that point forward, a genuine believer has an inner desire to please, honor and obey Christ each day of our lives. A Christian is not perfect, but we love, worship and live for One who is – Christ!

 

We all rely on food for strength and growth. Physically, if we don’t eat every day we become weak. A Christian must have spiritual food every day or we become weak spiritually. A Christian reads their Bible to be strengthened. It is a daily MUST if we are going to grow in Christ.

Bible Bites are just that – bites, small bites, once a week. We are glad you are reading the bites in this section of our website, but remember, they are not full meals. Think of them as little spiritual snacks between the Table Meals with your own Bible. Make sure your daily spiritual diet consists of reading your Bible and praying each day.

If you have any questions or comments, we would love to hear from you.

Having Doubts about God or Your Beliefs?

By On September 10, 2019

I wonder sometimes if I have just swallowed hook, line and sinker the set of beliefs with which I’ve been brought up. The more I’m exposed to larger circles and hear how others think, the more I wonder if what I believe could really be right and the exclusive truth. I’m almost embarrassed over how simply I see the world….

Pain for Gain

By On September 3, 2019

Have you ever grumbled to the Lord about things that are happening in your life? Someone else gets the promotion you expected to get. You sprain your ankle, ending your soccer season. The transmission goes in your car. Your favourite piece of technology was stolen. Your house deal falls through. A courtship is called off. Don’t just shrug your shoulders…

Dialoguing the Gospel

By On August 27, 2019

Do you find it easier to have a one-way conversation than a dialogue? Some overt introverts freeze during a free-flowing discussion or an exchange of ideas. They can stand up in a classroom and deliver a prepared presentation – a one-way monologue. But they become very uncomfortable when the monologue turns into a dialogue. The Apostle Paul was equipped to…

Love and Truth – Christian Fellowship

By On August 20, 2019

I just don’t see why you are such a stickler for details. Christianity is about love and if you keep insisting on those things, we’ll lose everyone. The writing is on the wall. People today just are not going to put up with all those technicalities. Before you know it, everyone will be walking out of here. Like, does it…

Sugar-coating Our Defeats

By On August 13, 2019

“Mike, it’s Brad calling about our accountability session coming up on Thursday. Let me know if you are still available. And just to remind you – you agreed to keep a journal for the two weeks listing all your victories and your defeats. Be sure to print-off a copy for me for our discussion.” Sometimes in our Christian experience, we…

Losing Jesus and the Enjoyment of His Presence

By On August 6, 2019

It must have been the longest and, by far, the worst three days of their lives. Thousands of people had left their towns and had converged on Jerusalem for the Passover Festival which was followed by the Festival of Unleavened Bread. For many of the country folk, it was a seven-day stay in the big bustling metropolis of Jerusalem. Joseph…

An Appetite to Please the Lord

By On July 30, 2019

It was a very important day. The old king had called a special meeting of all his royal officials, palace staff and diplomats. All the country’s VIPs were there. Speculation was probably rampant about whether the king himself would be well enough to address the delegates or if it would have to be a message delivered by an official on…

Happy Volunteers for Christ

By On July 23, 2019

“What time do you want me there? Really? I can’t believe it’s my turn to volunteer again. It just seems like I was there and did that last week. Volunteering three times a month is a bit much to expect of anyone. I’m finding it to be a real intrusion into my life. Sorry for the rant. I will take…

Court of Public Opinion

By On July 16, 2019

In a defiant moment, have you ever mocked the Court of Public Opinion, muttering to your friends or yourself: “I don’t really care what people think. If there’s nothing wrong with it, I’ll do it.”  Perhaps you’ve never diagnosed yourself as rebellious or suffering from the ‘selfishness syndrome’ but, if you heard someone outside of your circle of friends saying…

Bitter Jealousy and Selfish Ambition

By On July 9, 2019

“Just drop it, Elhanan. Some people get the breaks and you’re not one of them. Some people get all the fame, while others fight and win battles in obscurity. Get on with your life and stop living in the past. Jealousy will consume you. Give it up!” “… if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do…
