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.

In MY Distress

By On June 25, 2019

Rarely do you get advance notice that trouble is about to strike. One day a person has plans and hopes but the next day everything is shattered. Today is so different from yesterday; a huge frightening freefall into an abyss of darkness. Their world has been abruptly turned upside down. Swirling around them are thick, dark clouds of despair. A…

Suffering Shame for His Name

By On June 18, 2019

There’s something wrong with this picture. They had just been thrashed with whips. There’s no reason to think the beatings were gentle and restrained. Skilled men with powerful arms whistled the whip through the air and it came down hard upon the backs of the apostles.  With threatening voices, they charged them to never ever mention the Name of Jesus…

Taking Studying to a Higher Level

By On June 11, 2019

What do geneticists, ornithologists, astronomers, physicists, zoologists, oceanographers, meteorologists, lepidopterists and microbiologists all have in common? What do microbes have in common with minerals? Or flitting butterflies with distant stars? Or tiny hummingbirds with tiny atoms? Or deep ocean floors with marsupial koalas? What’s the connection? God, the works of God and the study thereof. What do Calvary and the…

Altars that Alter

By On June 4, 2019

If someone asked you to take them to a place where you did ‘business’ with God, where would you take them? Are there any special geographical locations where you had a heart-to-heart with the Lord – one of those deep dialogues that will be remembered for a long time?  People who walk with God have treasured-turf and sacred spots where…

Satan’s Wow Show

By On May 28, 2019

Will our voices get hoarse singing at the non-stop eternal hymn sing around the Throne? Will we run out of hymns to sing? Who will be playing the harps? Will their thumbs get sore or will they take turns? According to 1 Corinthians 6 it seems like our eternity with Christ will be more – much more than one big hymn-sing. …

Take the Lead – Initiate Prayer with Your Friends

By On May 14, 2019

The King’s demand was bizarre. It’s hard enough to try to interpret a dream once you hear it, but King Nebuchadnezzar was adding a new twist to it all. “Not only do I want you to interpret my dream, I want you to remember it for me – because I’ve forgotten it. The content of the dream has escaped me completely. Think hard…

How Do You Look at People?

By On May 7, 2019

“Did you ask me what I’m staring at? Can’t you see! Those got to be the two luckiest guys in town. Just look at the bikes they’re driving. They get off their Harley-Davidson Roadsters and walked through the marina and then tore out into the harbour in a Fountain Powerboat 32 Thunder Cat. Incredible monster power! They’re so lucky. I’m…
