Doubting God

by Chris Grimbilas

Man has been doubting God since virtually the beginning of time. Take a look at the brief conversation between Eve and the serpent. Genesis 3:1-4 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall […]

The Benefits of Accepting Christ

by Chris Grimbilas

Romans 5:1-2 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” To be justified by faith means we have accepted the sacrifice of Christ on the […]

Faith that is big enough

by Chris Grimbilas

It is the Christmas season. Let’s thin about that for the moment. The virgin birth of Christ is one of the cardinal doctrines of our faith. If we do not have a virgin birth, we cannot have a sinless Saviour. Yet how can we have a virgin birth? Humanly speaking, it is impossible. In fact, […]

There is more here than prophecy

by Chris Grimbilas

When most people talk about Daniel chapter 9, they talk about the great prophecy of the 70 weeks at the end of the chapter. How did Daniel get to the point where the Lord opened up that prophecy to him? It was the start of the chapter! Daniel is doing that which got him thrown […]

I have a lot of reasons to praise the Lord

by Chris Grimbilas

I have a lot of reasons to praise the Lord. I can start with my salvation. I accepted Christ as my personal Saviour on June 21, 1984. I can keep going with the fact that I have been married to the same wonderful woman for over 30 years. Together, we have been blessed with five […]

Brought, Bound, and Strengthened

by Chris Grimbilas

God deals with His people. Throughout the history of Israel, God chastised the nation in order to pull them back in His direction. Yet, God doesn’t deal with His people out of unkindness. He deals with them as a loving, caring shepherd who wants the sheep back in the fold. This is a New Testament […]

God Knows Me

by Chris Grimbilas

As I read Psalm 139 today, I came up with one inescapable truth. God know me. Here is the thing. I want God to know me. Why would I say that? To be honest, I don’t have a lot of choice n the matter. Consider what the Bible says, in fact, how verse one begins. […]

Someone After God’s Own Heart

by Chris Grimbilas

It has been properly noted that, for all his faults, David was a man after God’s own heart. Yet, David’s life was often a disaster.  He committed adultery and murder.  His sons murdered one another.  One son raped one daughter. His son Absalom led a rebellion against him. He had a baby that died.  All […]

A 1 Chronicles 16:9 Night

by Chris Grimbilas

Last night, we had a 1 Chronicles 16:9 night at church.  It was amazing.  What does that mean?  Well, my Bible reading this morning included 1 Chronicles 16. As I read verses 8-12, it dawned on me that this is what we had last night at church. We moved our mid-week service to Tuesday this […]
