Behind the MASK! Is that you?

Christians ought not have to wear a mask to be in the world. If you are ashamed of Christ, He will be ashamed of you. We are called out of the world to go back into the world as the children of God. There is no need for a long robe or a long sad face. There is no need to pretend and there is no reason to lie. You are still you, but with a different way of seeing things and a new way of thinking. When you refuse to let the world go, then you want to put on the mas...

When you have the peace of God in your life; sleep is sweet. The trials of life will not defeat you when you are in Christ the Lord. Without peace the world would be in total chaos. It is the love of God that gives this world balance. Without love we would all be barbarians and hatred would rule the world. Bloodshed would have no end and life as we know it would cease. There is a TWO-WAY STREET that goes through the valley, one road leads to eternal life and...

When you understand the word STAY, you must realize that it means to continue. No matter what you must be committed to not being moved. One of our biggest problems is staying power; any little thing can shake our faith. The real problem is when you do not have a SOURCE that you can depend on. Most people rely on resources and the sad thing about resources, they run out and they dry up. When I say stay connected to the vine, I’m saying sti...

What do you give someone who has everything? No matter how much we get we are never satisfied. Discontentment is a reproducing seed that starts in the heart. Arrogance, conceit, and anxiety are the ways of discontentment. The saying, “I can’t get no satisfaction” describes most of our personalities. The more we get the more we want. The desires of the heart are greater than we will ever become. When you are cons...

The freedom that we enjoy daily comes not without a price.  The people that serve in the military, law enforcement, health care and many others, make a sacrifice for our safety.  We often take for granted the freedom that we have.  Many people would like to have the security of knowing that they are protected by Constitutional Rights.  These rights come at a cost most of us are not willing to pay.  Your right to vote cost many people their...
