Joy In The Midst of Your Night Season

Have you ever felt like giving up, throwing in the towel?  Have you ever felt like every time you turn around,  something else is broken or late, or something is wrong with something or somebody in your life?  Have you ever laid in the bed at night and your problems have gotten so bad that

Walk The Talk

There was an article some time ago that talked about a religious  experience that a person had as well as a subsequent conversion experience.  It made you want to shout as you read the account! However reading an article about someone is one thing, but more important when viewing a person’s life, there should be

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Many Bible scholars believe that the error of Gnosticism (knowledge) is at the forefront of many of the New Testament writer’s agenda.    Regardless of the title of the error, one thing becomes patently obvious to the reader – it is not merely what we say – but what we do.

The Obedience of the Confession

There is no doubt that great importance is placed on what we say and the scriptures will bear this out: Prov 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue . . .” Matt 12:37, “For by thy words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.” Rom 10:10,

Believing & Behavior

So often, there is a huge disparity between what we say, & what we actually do. The Bible makes the connection or links “believing” to “behavior.” The two appear to be inseparable. When we try to divorce these two terms (as they relate to Christianity), what we end up with is a mixture of truth

Money Has Never Yet Made Anyone Rich

Wealth cannot by contentment. Money can buy medicine, but not health. Money can buy a house, but not a home. It can buy companionship, but not friends. Money can buy entertainment, but not happiness. It can buy a bed, but not sleep. Money can buy a crucifix, but not a Savior. It can buy the

Being Rich Is Not Wrong

It is not wrong to be rich. We must be careful that our urge to be rich does not result in our trampling down the moral fences that we might not otherwise trespass. We probably know people who got so caught up in the pursuit of wealth, that they defied their own conscience and got

More On Money

Think of a screwdriver, I can put it to good or evil use. I can use it to assemble a bike for one of my grandchildren or tighten a screw on my mother’s storm door or I could use it as a weapon and turn it on someone. I could walk out into the parking

Money Is Not The Problem

The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Please note that money is not the problem, but the LOVE of money itself. That is why so many folk are haters, they don’t understand money. Money itself isn’t evil – its merely a tool with which we are able to do things.

Contentment Is Not A Feeling

You may ask, what about this feeling that I have? You say, “I don’t feel content.” We only become discontent when we want MORE than food and shelter or when we want OTHER food and shelter than what we have. The problem is that we often look for contentment and satisfaction in our circumstances rather

Do Your Part

God has promised to take care of the necessities of our lives and of course we need to be diligent in applying ourselves to the means of provision that He has given — do your job well! God gave it to you. Take good care of your family, they are from God. But also know

True Contentment

A Christian’s contentment is found by finding satisfaction in what Christ provides. No more no less. It’s the confidence in the love, wisdom, and power of God. It’s the result of faith that when Jesus said, “it is finished,” it was finished indeed. So when we are content, we are at peace because we rely

Godliness

Have you ever thought about what godliness is? Godliness is a word that comes to us out of ancient religion and means to be devoted. It referred to people who were genuinely devoted to God, and not merely going through the motions of religion because that’s what is expected. In the Bible, godliness is an

True Worship

True worship of God should be a life changing experience.  Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “if Socrates would enter the room we should rise and do him honor, but if Jesus Christ came into the room we should fall down on our knees and worship him.”  That’s the kind of life change that real worship evokes.  

Your Life Is Not Defined By Your Past

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 are flawed.  They all stumbled and fell short.  Everyman and woman listed in Hebrews 11 sinned at some point in their lives (some
