  • 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.

Sept. 6, 2010 - "Do It Heartily, as to the Lord"

By Ken Horn

This has been a life verse for me. “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23, NKJV).

There have been times in my life when I did not excel because I did not give it my all. There are also times that I didn’t do too well simply because I was doing it for myself, not Jesus.

This verse will cure a multitude of sins. Christians can even do God’s work selfishly, for their own glory or even out of a sense of obligation to someone else.

As I get older I realize I need to pour every ounce of energy into everything. This means that even in the “nonreligious” things you need to do them as unto Jesus. This soon eliminates some things. If it can’t be done as unto Him, it shouldn’t be done.

Recreation, time with friends and family — all of these things can be done as unto the Lord, just as much as the more spiritual things.

The key is, we need to give everything our all — and do it for Jesus.
