In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.

Marty Machowski.  Don’t Blame the Mud: Only Jesus Makes Us Clean.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth Press, May 27th, 2019. 32 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Are you looking for a good children’s book that talk about the subject of sin and forgiveness of sins biblically?  This children’s book really did a good job giving an analogy of sin being compared to mud and also talked directly about the issue of sin, guilt and Christ and the Gospel.  Yet the author told this story in a way that kids would relate and certainly my daughters felt they could identify with the main character Max.

Establish the need: We can go over many things that Christians are to do and to become that sometimes it can feel overwhelming.  One might wonder: Can I as a Christian really change?

Purpose: In this session we will consider five truths that should give Christians hope for godly change so that we would continue to fight sin and pursue the Christian life.

    1. Hope for change #1: You are a new creation
    2. Hope for change #2: You are given a new heart
    3. Hope for change #3: You are being sanctified by the Holy Spirit
    4. Hope for change #4: Your circumstances is being used by God to make you like Jesus
    5. Hope for change #5: You will be perfectly sanctified one day

Note: Previously I have posted “” and I plan on working on a new devotional series from time to time on our blog that focuses on verses from the four Gospel where we will make observations from the Greek but also draw out applications for our lives.  This post will kick it off so stay tune!

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading yesterday, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 1:24.  Here is my translation:

“ἐγερθεὶς δὲ ὁ Ἰωσὴφ ἀπὸ τοῦ ὕπνου ἐποίησεν ὡς προσέταξεν αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου
But Joseph arising from the sleep he did as  the angel of the Lord commanded

καὶ παρέλαβεν τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ, ”
and took his wife

Here are some observations:

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.

Ken Ham and Cindy Malott. Answers Book for Kids Volume 5: Space and Astronomy.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, September 27th 2013. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Looking for a book on space for young kids that’s written from a Christian worldview? This volume in the Answers Book for Kids series by Ken Ham is on the topic of space and astronomy!  My kids really liked this and when I asked them to describe the book in one word they said “Cool,” “Fun” and “Awesome.”  One of my daughters enjoyed the discussion about the Black Hole which was new to them while another said they enjoyed the illustration.

This is a study outline based upon Matthew 5:6

This is a serious and important post.

One of the most frightening passage from the Bible is what Jesus said:

Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [n]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

(Matthew 7:22-23)

The consequences of being a false Christian has too much at stake for eternity.

You want to make sure you really are a Christian.  You want to make sure you genuinely will be going to heaven.  Of course going to heaven is not by our own works, but the works of Christ.  But you got to have genuine trust in Christ’s person and work.  You need to be rooted in Christ.

How do you know you are rooted in Christ?  Here’s a biblical diagnostic spiritual DNA test.
