  • 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. ...

March 24, 2014 - God's Question

By Dave Kidd

"He answered one of them, 'Friend, I haven't been unfair! Didn't you agree to work all day for the usual wage? Take your money and go. I wanted to pay this last worker the same as you. Is it against the law for me to do what I want with my money? Should you be jealous because I am kind to others?' So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last" (Matthew 20:13-16, NLT).

I have always loved this parable. Not only does it show our Heavenly Father's heart, but it shows how patient He is, wanting to give the gift of salvation to whoever accepts it by accepting His Son, Jesus Christ, as Lord.

I don't know how you might respond when reading this parable, and I don't know where you are in life. However, I do know Jesus wants to have a relationship with you. God himself wants you to know Him. It doesn't matter if you're young, old, rich, poor or anywhere in between, Jesus is waiting for you to say yes to the question He's been asking: "I have loved you; will you love Me?"

Perhaps you don't believe you've ever heard the question. Believe me, you have. That nagging sense that something is missing in your life. The lack of contentment and fulfillment. The absence of joy during your day-to-day activities. These are all the voice of God's Holy Spirit asking you to commit your life to His loving care.

In Jesus' story, the workers who worked one hour received the same pay as those who worked all day. In the same way, anyone who accepts Christ, even late in life, enters into the same redemptive relationship with God as those who have loved and served God their whole life.

Answer Christ's question today! And do so with a resounding "Yes!"
