God’s Weed Control

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Weed control is a fact of life if you own a yard, a garden, landscape beds and even potted plants outdoors.  They make this product called Roundup that you can spray on weeds anywhere and it kills them. Well, it kills everything.  Walking in my neighborhood, I know the rookie yard owners because their green lawn is spotted with brown, …

Side Effects of Jesus

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

I think TV commercials for prescription drugs are so amusing. The visuals you watch present one story—usually a positive, peppy person living a happy, healthy life with sunny skies and smiley pets.  Meanwhile the narrator talking during the commercial is racing through a list of nasty side effects that nobody in their right mind would ever want to experience.  “Wait. …

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Can You Know for Sure?

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Can you know for sure that you’ll spend eternity in heaven?  Many people are puzzled by that question. So what do you think?  We’re all sinners. Heaven is holy. We know that Jesus saves. We know that we are weak.  Jesus tells us about some folks who apparently know for sure, and then get disappointed when on Judgment Day they …

Clear. “Yes, the Bible says it right here!” For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Friends

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

It seems unfair. Impossible really. 19 directives from God about being a friend. Packed into 8 verses from the book of Romans, chapter 12, verses 9-16. And we’ve violated them all. We’re not the kind of friends we hoped we could be, or that God wants us to be. But nothing is impossible with God. If we cannot be the …
