Not Defined By One Black Mark

Too often we let one black mark against a man define his entire life.  Sometimes we even look at ourselves that way, but God doesn’t!  Every one of the heroes in Scripture was flawed.  They all stumbled and fell short.  Every man and woman listed in Hebrews 11 sinned (and some blew it royally) at

Building The Kingdom of God

Our job as Christians is to bring other people into the family of God in order that the Kingdom of God on earth will come to pass. We are God’s ambassadors for Kingdom building. We have been given our orders through The Great Commission. (Matt 28:19-20)

God Is Looking For A Demonstration

As we begin this week, let’s make a commitment to go beyond talking about how much we love the Lord and show it by demonstrating good stewardship.  Everybody wants the favor of God to fall on them, but few are willing to make the commitment of obedience to His way.

Joy Comes In The Morning

Christians should be the most joyous people on the face of the earth.  Why?  Because we are God’s children.  He has given His children the family instruction manual (the Bible) and in that manual, it tells us that even though we mess up, when we repent, “the Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger
