His Love Endures Forever

Psalm 118:1, Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever! Often at funerals, whether we attend one ourselves or watch one on a fictional TV show, the minister will say something like this, “He will live on in the memory of his friends and family.” How depressing it…

Where is God in America?

America has been rapidly falling into moral depravity for several decades, especially of late. Frustrated with all the injustice going on within our country, today I asked myself, “Where is God in the midst of all this corruption?” And immediately God reminded me where we can find Him: in the Church.

The Christian’s Comfort in Death

Beatitudes: Blessed Are Those Who Mourn

Matthew 5:4, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Last time, Jesus said the poor in spirit are blessed because the kingdom of Heaven is theirs. Now He says people who mourn are blessed because they will be comforted. When we grieve, others grieve with us. We receive comfort from those who have…
