  1. Dinner. Sit by a lake or by a stream?
  2. Glad to see you back! I'm sorry you were hurt by your family. Please remember that you are loved and appreciated here! You are not alone...not everyone has family that stays in touch, including me. One of my friends (now passed away) once said we can't pick our family but we can pick our friends.
  3. Anyone seeing the humor in things lately? Please bestow upon us your funny stuff....
  4. I hope everyone takes the time to read the above.... it's hilarious! Thanks Neighbor! Tell them it has beavers or something....
  5. Agreeing with you in prayer. Btw, nice cat! Oops....sorry, nice dog!
  6. Another beautiful devotional reading. And like the author noted, we have not just rest, but God's rest. Truly a blessing.
  7. Train. Although I like both. Watch a mystery or a comedy?
  8. Continue believing through everything.

    Hi Guys

    Hi Jackie, welcome!
  12. Maybe you need a couple more posts....try that.
  13. That sounds really nice! Not sure what pikelets are though.... A New Zealand thing? Btw, have you met nzkev.... another New Zealand guy?
  14. Does anyone else ever reflect upon how love, peace and thankfulness go hand in hand? We have the peace of Christ in our hearts/lives, therefore we are able to extend love and forgiveness towards our neighbor, and even towards ourselves. Also, there is a thankfulness in the heart of one who is in Christ. Be thankful for what we have, even if it is little. There are always others who have it much worse. Look for the good things in our lives....seeing, walking, hearing....all blessings from the Lord. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15
  15. Naomi, there is nothing wrong with pressing on to knowing Christ more (sanctification/walking with Christ). However, there are some here that are teaching that works alongside of Christ save, and that one can lose salvation when one sins.. That teaching is what Sonshine was warning you about. Please remember.... I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain. Galatians 2:21 Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? Galatians 3:2-3
  16. I am not speaking of our human understanding of who Jesus is, or us knowing about Him intellectually when I talk of the foundation. The only foundation is Jesus Christ Himself....when the reality of Christ is in our hearts and lives, this is the most blessed thing. Upon Christ everything else is laid.
  17. Putting my statement here again....as you can see, I did not accuse you of not being born again. I spoke of people in general.

    Jesus prayed that Peter's faith fails not. Shows what is important to Christ, our faith in Him.
  19. I was not accusing you. I was addressing your statement meanng people in general.
  20. Amen. We have the imputed righteousness of Christ. He took our sins and gives us His righteousness. This is the basis of our faith. Of course, the Christian life is a walk as we are being sanctified throughout our lifetime. We are not saying to stay in one place. However, we are warning do not throw away our foundation of our faith and Salvation....which is Christ alone!! Do not place our works in the place of Christ....works will not save.
  21. And again, a person such as you describe above sounds as if they never really were born again. Some people just mouth words about "accepting Christ"....that doesn't save anyone. True repentance and faith from the heart will save, resulting in being born again.
