People look to the future with uncertainty. Many try to avoid the thought that one day they will get older and finally die. A law professor in a university, who was a believer, had a young law student in his office who was full of life and excitement about the “bright” future that he would have in his career as a lawyer.Continue Reading
What is God’s plan for your marriage? To give you days of heaven on earth! Our marriage should be so beautiful, so harmonious that it radiates the glory of God. When people see us they should glorify God and recognize that this relationship is as it is because it is standing on the Rock Jesus Christ. What is God’s plan for your marriage? To give you days of heaven on earth!
My life had become unbearable, not only affecting me but also everybody around me. It is not an exaggeration to say that I was just a ‘moving problem’. My parents were terrified and my brothers absolutely embarrassed because they did not know what to do to help me. All the problems started during my early adolescence. When the Turkish invasion took place in Cyprus in July 1974, I was 14 years old. Though our house was very close to the cemetery, I did not have any problem with it whatsoever. In fact, when I was very young, I even used to play with my friends in or around the cemetery and considered it quite normal.Continue Reading
Viaţa mea era într-adevăr insuportabilă, nu numai faţă de mine dar şi de ceilalţi din jurul meu, de cei apropiaţi şi ceilalţi cunoscuţi!

The Fear of the Lord is what is missing and the presence of God. (Proverbs 9:10) The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [is] understanding.

(Proverbs 15:33) The fear of the LORD [is] the instruction of wisdom; and before honour [is] humility. (Proverbs 9:11) For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. Whatever does not have the fear of the Lord in it is unwise and foolish, temporary and vain; it is doomed to fail.Continue Reading
“I fell out of love with him, I don’t love him anymore…there’s nothing I can do about it, it just happened, the passion is gone!” People feel that they fall out of love as quickly as they fall in. Most people think that love and passion are things that “just happen” if you are “lucky”, and you don’t have any control over them. That’s a very common misconception and one of the most common reasons for marriages falling apart and Christians backsliding. Nothing could be farther from the truth however.Continue Reading
In the gospel of Luke 6:46-49 there is a parable of two men who built their house (one on the sand and the other on the rock) and immediately the storms came. Both men heard the word but one man’s house fell. The reason was because the foundation was not solid. He built on the sand. And in our lives to one degree or another we have learned that the foundation is the most important part of the building. In the case of believers that foundation is on the Rock.Continue Reading
