  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

Aug. 30, 2010 - Taking the Right Step

By Scott McChrystal

“Yet as surely as the Lord lives and as you live, there is only a step between me and death” (1 Samuel 20:3, NIV).

David's words spoken to Jonathan 3,000 years ago still hold true. The distance between life and death can be as short as a single step.

Soldiers know this — especially airborne soldiers. One step is the difference between the safety of the aircraft and the danger of floating hundreds of feet above the ground. The key to taking this step safely is being ready.

A friend of mine bought his first motorcycle. Later that day he was riding his new bike in his neighborhood when he suddenly lost control and crashed into an oncoming car. He died instantly. In his zeal to ride his new motorcycle, he had failed to prepare properly and lost his life as the result.

Physical death is certain, but where we spend eternity is not. Jesus Christ has conquered death and provided the way to eternal life. But where you spend eternity depends on taking the right step.

Jesus has promised to receive all who believe in Him into heaven to spend eternity with Him.

Are you ready? Have you taken the step to receive Him?
