Originally written for the Illinois Family Institute, an organization worthy of your prayers and support.   by Rev. James M. McDonald There is no doubt about it, many of us are hoping that 2016 will bring real change.

Arming Ourselves with Holiness

Jan 26, 2016

As we continue in the Book of 1st Peter, we come to a place that again discusses suffering, but the focus changes from that which we suffer in the world to that which we suffer in the mind as temptation besets us.

Aug 30, 2015

Originally published in 2011 It is certainly an understatement to say that we live in a sex saturated society.

Not only are we rebels at heart, we are also those who have legitimate concerns about the direction of our nation. But, is this foreign to the Christian experience? Is the Word silent on this matter? Not at all. And what it has to...

Motivating Grace

Feb 22, 2015

After pondering a number of messages on who we are to be in Jesus (Titus 2:2-10), we now come to consider how we can live as the Lord directs – it is all about His grace, grace seen in the past, grace seen in the present, grace seen in the future.

And we are challenged to consider the text, how we are to “be” that which we often aren’t. God uses our faithful labors as a means of evangelism, proclaiming the reality that Jesus lives! The Witness...
