Husbands and wives, when you were dating you wanted to find out everything you could about your significant other. You would give them presents wrapped in their favorite color, jewelry in their favorite color metal, and maybe bring them their favorite treat. There was no bounds, and you prioritized that person over everything—work, school, family (just ask them!).

While Jesus does not want to be your boyfriend or girlfriend, He demands that kind of passion—that He is the center of your life and that you will seek Him and His glory first and foremost. That you will repent of your sin, turn and follow Him wherever that leads.

May I encourage you—spend time in God’s Word, and as you do, look at it like that love that you had (and hopefully still have!) for your spouse. Look for ways that you can please Him, and don’t let the culture, what others may think, etc. get between you and giving praise and glory to your Savior.

Don’t get trapped in the lies of the world, that this is the best that it’s been. This world is not our home, and the best is yet to come.

I know, the holidays are over.  Because of my schedule and the changes that are going on in my family’s life over the past month since I was told that I had to find new employment, I’ve been a pretty delinquent blogger.  That couldn’t stop me, however, from noticing this great post by Christa Taylor at Empowered Traditionalist, and from wanting to take part.

So, pardon my lateness.

Church Aisle Header Another holiday season has come, and one thing is certain—we’ve all had a lot to eat.  I’m not sure where the tradition came from, but what I am certain is that this is not just the season for presents and good cheer, it’s also the season to make exotic dishes in the hopes that family will eat them.

She is sleeping with her boyfriend, left the church because they were going to discipline her, should they follow through with the public announcement?

That is the situation a church in Florida found itself in this past week as a woman in the church first confessed to a woman in her Bible Study that she was in an immoral affair, and then (ironically) tried to stop that church from declaring what she did was a sin.

So said the scrawling on the bathroom stall I found myself in Monday morning.  Now, I guess I could have taken it as a warning, and left immediately, but instead I found myself reflecting on the fact that we’re all mortal, and we all have a short time on Earth to make an impact.
