Does God have a special interest in the lives of His children?

Randy wrote on his blog, “Christ watches closely what transpires on Earth, especially in the lives of God’s people."

A reader responded: "Why especially in the lives of God's people? Does He not closely watch the lives of the non-believers? I'm sure that He does. We are all sinners alike. No one sinner is more beloved than the other. It seems that wording has placed a separation between non-believers and believers.”

What about same-sex married couples adopting?

First of all, as Christians we should be supporting and adopting needy children at home and abroad. We’re called to love our neighbor, and the most loving thing we can do for a child in need is placing them in a godly family where they will hear the gospel, grow in knowledge of God and His word, and experience unconditional love and support.

Will our reception into Heaven be different depending on how we have lived our life on earth?

Question from a reader:

In your book Edge of Eternity, the Christian woman who lived for self rather than for the King, upon entering Charis did not get any private time with the King. Is this the kind of reception the carnal Christian receives in Heaven? Will the King simply demand they appear before Him, kneel while He's talking, and spell out His disappointment with them, saying they could have been and could have done so much more, but all they've done was accept the Gift, so "go ahead and come in"... no welcoming party, no reception, no reward?

The Crowded Kindnesses of God

FoxgloveAlexander Maclaren advised, “Seek to cultivate a buoyant, joyous sense of the crowded kindnesses of God in your daily life.”

On Manna and Personal Sabbaths

The scattering of manna in the wilderness happened 6 days a week. On the 7th, just as in creation, God rested and so did the Israelites—at least the obedient ones. Those who went out to gather manna on the Sabbath disappointed themselves and God.

Studying the Bible with S.O.A.P.

Question from a reader:

I am a correspondent for older children sponsored by a Christian organization. I want to send them Bible study techniques, but most likely the vast majority of my kids have NO access to anything but their Bible—no concordances, dictionaries, etc. Do you have some tips to give the kids on studying the Bible during their own quiet time?

The Sin of Gluttony, and a Reminder of What We Really Hunger for

ForkScripture often describes our longing for God as a deep hunger or thirst. Hunger and thirst are basic drives in our bodies, and there is also a hunger and thirst of the soul. This fallen world, including food and drink, can never ultimately and fully satisfy our fallen selves.

Is it okay to be untruthful with someone who has dementia?

Question from a reader:

A friend’s wife has dementia and is constantly forgetting how many sodas she has had (she has a rule that she will not drink more than two a day). He feels guilty about lying to her and is struggling with the moral ethic of his actions. Is it okay to be untruthful with someone who has dementia?

Comfort, Hope and Encouragement from God

IceSome days no one but God has the right words. Nothing I can say stacks up against what follows. Read, believe and thank God that even when we don’t sense His presence, He’s with us and at work in a thousand ways we can’t see.
