Deacon Bruce McElrath's Blog-Living as Children of Light

Living as Children of Light
People should be able to see a difference between Christians and non-Christians because of the way Christians live. We are to live full of life (Ephesians 5:8). We are to leave behind the old life of sin, since we are followers of Jesus.
Living the Christian life is a process. Although we have a new nature, we don’t automatically think all good thoughts and express all right attitudes when we become new people in Jesus. But if we keep listening to God, we will be changing all the time.

what He wants to teach. This involves several important factors: (1) silent reflection

on what God wants, (2) repentant humility, (3) self-control in the face of adversity,

UNITY THROUGH HUMILTY

Unity through Humilty
My sisters and brothers many people – even Christians – live only to make a good impression on others or to please themselves. But selfishness brings discord.
When we work together, caring for the problems of others as if they were our problems, we demonstrate Jesus’ example of putting others first, and we experience unity. Don’t be so concerned about making a good impression or meeting your own needs that you strain relationships in God’s family.

WE MUST SEEK GOD, HE IS WAITING

We must seek God, He is waiting!
Do you remember how you felt when you were very young and your birthday approached? You were excited and anxious. You knew you certainly receive gifts and other special treats. But some things would be a surprise. Birthdays combine assurance and anticipation, and so do faith! Faith is the conviction based on past experience that God’s new and fresh surprises will surely be ours.

Women in the Bible

Naming the 333 women in the Bible
While some biblical women are nameless and silent figures, others are movers and shakers in their own rights.

ARTICLE YOUR FAITH
The Catholic canon of the Bible contains 73 books. Three of them bear women’s names: Ruth, Judith, and Esther. These three texts also make the actions of women their central concern.
