The inspiration for this website came from a Scripture song I heard over 10 years ago at a ladies retreat:

Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
A word fitly spoken shall be,
Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
Let my life bring glory to thee.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Although some of the "stories" listed are made up, the Scriptural truths they illustrate are very real and can be of great benefit in a Christian's walk with the Lord and as illustrations for the lost.

It is my heart's desire that amongst the pages of this website, the Christian find words of encouragement and be spurred on to service for our Lord, and that seekers of the truth find Salvation in the timeless truths of God's Word for these troubled times.

The Contest

One day, a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way, and no longer needed God.

They chose one scientists to go and tell Him that they were done with Him.

The scientist walked up to God and said, "God, we've decided we no longer need You. We are to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so we're just going to go on without You."
God listened to the scientist very patiently and kindly, then said to him, "Well, how about we have a test– a man-making contest."

The scientist replied with an enthusiastic "Okay! Great!"
Then God said, "We are going to do this just like I did in the old days with Adam."
The scientist still said, "Sure! No problem!" He bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.

God looked at him and said, "No, no, no, you get your own dirt." 🙂

Man thinks he has come a long way in this life, but what he fails to remember is that God is the one who has made everything that exists. If you believe that God is the One Who created everything that exists, that God sent his only Son to die for your sins, and that God is the only one that can save you from that sin, then forward this to those you love.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 10: 9-11,13  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
