  • 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. ...

Feb. 23, 2011 - Forward in Faith

By Dorothy Rugg

“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.’ Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we shall live and also do this or that’” (James 4:13-15, NASB).

Time marches on, my friends, and the older I get the faster life goes by. When I was a little girl, the year 2000 seemed so far away. Now it is slipping ever farther into the past. It is so important that we make sure we are living our lives for God’s glory — loving Him, serving Him, putting our faith in Him, bringing hope to those who have no hope, being His hands extended to a world that needs the love of a Savior.

As we move further into 2011, may we all purpose in our hearts to draw near to God, to take time daily to seek His face, read His Word and make application of the Word into our lives. Let’s be encouragers to one another!

“But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:7-14).

May we all continually “press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
