Who is God to you?

Posted on February 11, 2021 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Do you know God for yourself? Your answer could determine the outcome of your future. Your concept of God and how you feel about Him will make a difference in how you see and do things. So many of us are guilty of standing on someone else's belief. Your faith in God is what you should believe. You must get to know God for yourself. You can develop a personal relationship and when you learn how to walk with God, it becomes a fellowship. To KNOW God is to KNOW PEACE, but w...

The Work of a Disciple

St. Mark 16:15-16

There are three aspects of Christian Work.

Commission - You are CHOSEN

Mission - To go is your CHOICE

Power - Empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said, "You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you." The call of Christ is first to come To Him for SALVATION and then there is a call to Come AFTER Him...

The Gift that keeps on GIVING

Posted on January 5, 2021 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Did you ever like something so much till you couldn't get enough? It seems that no matter how much love you get, it's never enough. I have found out that sacrificial love is the greatest of all. When you give from your heart to someone who's undeserving, it is rewarding. In life, we are all seekers for something; that one thing is love. Nothing can take the place of unconditional love. God has shown great love and compassion toward mankind. In that, He has given ...

Stand your Ground

Posted on December 5, 2020 at 9:55 PM Comments comments (3)

In the bible (KJV), I Corinthians 15:58, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." When the Word of God tells us to be steadfast and unmoveable, we are to take a stand. We want to stand for that which is right and at all cost. We must take a stand against sin and the destruction that it causes to our lives. Life is not perfect; active sin can ca...

The Power of SILENCE

Posted on November 20, 2020 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Knowing when to speak and when to keep quiet is priceless. So many people have paid the ultimate price for not keeping their mouths shut; they lost their lives. The power of life and death is in the tongue. In the bible, James chapter 3, says the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity and it defiles the whole body. 3:7-8 "For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of the things of the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man can ...

Safe in the Lord's Hand

Posted on October 30, 2020 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (2)

In the time of a pandemic, we all want to be safe. We also encourage others to be safe. With danger on every side, we should be cautious of WHO we hang out with and WHERE we hang out. Sometimes we only get ONE CHANCE to make the best decision. The best decision is not always the RIGHT decision. When you make the right decision, you can rest. You don't have to worry about the outcome. In the bible, St. John 10:27-29, Jesus gives ASSURANCE to all believers t...

Are you ASKING God the RIGHT question?

Posted on October 16, 2020 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)

You shouldn't question God because He knows what's best for you, but it is alright to ask God a question. Are you asking God WHY when you should be asking God HOW? We often worry about things that we have no control over. Sometimes problems are more than we can handle. We have divine help that's available to all believers. Trusting God is first and foremost. Standing on FAITH is believing that God can perform what He said He would do. When trouble arises,...

Making a Change for a Better Life

Posted on September 26, 2020 at 7:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Making a change is necessary for progress. Without change, we would not experience life in total bliss. The seasons would not be independent. Time brings a change that everyone must accept; nothing goes unchanged. Prayer is the beginning of a new way of living. When you pray, you can look for a change. Prayer does not change things. But it does change the people that pray. There are two types of changes you can expect in life. TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE or a TRANSACTIONAL CHANGE. ...

Can you Walk on Water?

Posted on September 12, 2020 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Most people could answer this question with one word. NO would be the response you would get. Then they would have a question for you. Are you crazy? Walking on water is not impossible. I have been studying the teaching of Jesus Christ for over forty years. He taught His disciples things that He did was not impossible for them as well. You may say that you should learn to swim and not worry about walking on water. If you can swim, there would be no need to walking on wat...
