A Walk of Life

Psalm 1, Romans 12:21

Your walk of life is a choice.  It’s a place of decision, a choice of the will, a walk of obedience.  You and I are not to be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.  We must eliminate compromise!

Happy Birthing Person’s Day~

Selected Scriptures

We are living in changing times and many of the changes are destructive to the foundation of society.  One such change is how we identify God’s created order of mankind. In the beginning God said, “The woman will bring forth children.” That has not changed and will not change. Women bear children. Women become mothers. Follow the science. Better yet…FOLLOW GOD.

"Who is This?"

Have you ever had someone ask you about a person and they said, "Who is that?"  I'm sure that we all have experienced this question. As Jesus entered Jerusalem, there was great excitement and wonder about who this Jesus was.  The multitude of people on that day answered the question, but gave the wrong answer.  How would you answer thie question, "Who is this?"

The Mission of Edification

Selected Scriptures

We live in the midst of a culture that is tearing down the fabric of our society, our value system and even the mission of the church.  This “dog-eat-dog” mentality is tearing down others in an effort to somehow elevate self. As God’s people in this world, we have the opportunity to build up and edify one another both inside church and in society.

Knowing the Time of Christ’s Return

Selected Scriptures

We are just like the disciples, who were curious about the Lord’s return.  When the disciples asked Jesus concerning His return, He answered them, but He didn’t give them what they wanted to know; He gave them what they needed to know. What do we need to know about His coming as we live with expectancy?

Thankfully, there is one solution that solves all the spiritual problems we face and that is the Word of God!

Being Set Free

Matthew 6: 9-15

One of the greatest needs in the Christian’s life is to “walk in forgiveness.”  When we withhold forgiveness, it places us in bondage and cripples our spiritual life.  Unforgiveness provides Satan an opportunity in our lives that can rob and steal the joy of our salvation and hinder our relationship with God and others.

“Overcoming Temptation”

Matthew 4: 1-11

Temptation is a part of life, especially if we are living for the Lord.  Our enemy will try to attack and discourage us from glorifying God.  This should come as no surprise as Jesus was also tempted by the devil.  Thankfully, Christ shows us how we can overcome temptations and pass the test.

Selected Scriptures

We are living in a world that pushes and pulls us between light and darkness; between goodness and evil; between love and hate, and between creation and destruction.  Our problem isn’t just that we live in a sinful world, but that we live in a world of sinful people.  Our sin affects everything.  But Light, in the person of Jesus Christ, has come to overtake the darkness.

Luke 14: 25-35

 

 Our society generally does not breed strong commitment. The level of commitment seems to be governed by the thought, “What’s in it for me?” The self-fulfillment ethic seduces us to believe that we have no higher loyalty than one to ourselves.  In our scripture text, Jesus provides us with a different placement of our lives.
