Glorifying God By Our Good Deeds
by Terry Broome

There is a clear message coming out of the New Testament that we are to be a people who glorify God in everything we say and everything we do. Colossians 3:17 comes to mind as one such citation that “… whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”

A New Year’s Resolution
by Terry Broome

Time is moving ever so quickly and we’re reminded of the words of James in the New Testament: “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14).

The people sitting next to the mother gave her a knowing smile and the mother, evidently quite embarrassed, turned to her son and whispered, “Don’t take it so seriously!”

Obtaining The Prize
by Terry Broome

In 1Cor 9:24-27, Paul alludes to the ancient Grecian games through the image of athletes running in a race, fighting as a boxer, and competing for a prize. He observes that there are principles common to both athletes and Christians. We all are in need of motivation, self-control, and exercise. These are necessary in order to “obtain” the prize.
