Finding Safety in God’s Presence

It seems our current culture, the society or the world in which we live is full of fear. People are worried about everything from Ebola epidemics to identity theft to ISIS attacks to open borders. What’s the answer? I think we can look at 2 Chronicles 7:14. It says, “If my people, who are called […] Continue reading…

Understanding God’s Nature

God is speaking in Isaiah 57:15, “For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” He’s […] Continue reading…

Managing Your Memories and Guarding Your Heart

Ask the Holy Spirit to direct you to thoughts that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous, and praiseworthy. Take every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:4, 5), and if it is dark, lonely, bitter, or hurtful, throw it out! Those thoughts are of no use to you.

Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

We need to let perfect love have its way in our hearts. We need to allow that perfect love to send the terror and turmoil we sometimes feel straight back to hell from where it came.   I was talking to a man one Sunday after first service. He’s a really good and wonderful guy. […] Continue reading…

YOU Are Highly Favored

In Ephesians 1:6 the Apostle Paul said that God has highly favored you in Christ. The verse reads, “to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” The Common English Bible translates it this way, “and to honor his glorious grace that he has given to […] Continue reading…

New Year God’s Way—Hopeful Waiting for Restoration

I’ve shared over my last few posts that celebrating New Year God’s way should be different from what we normally do. New Year God’s way should be about a spiritual rousing. We should hear His trumpet blast and awaken from any spiritual complacency into repentance. It should be a time of awe-filled remembrance as we […] Continue reading…

What is Really Important?

Has our nation gone crazy? I don’t know how many of you saw what happened recently when Nike introduced their latest Air Jordan, but it was crazy. People getting pepper sprayed and creating mob-line scenes—over a tennis shoe? When I see something like that, it really shows me how society has lots its mind about […] Continue reading…

God With Us — He Never Forgets

An angel visits a carpenter named Joseph and explains to him the birth of his son. The angel quotes Isaiah 7:14 and says, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call  His name Immanuel, which is God with us.” (Matthew 1:23). God with us. Sometimes the Christmas season […] Continue reading…

Submitting to One Another

In my last post, I defined submission as: Voluntarily giving in to one another. When we give ourselves to one another, we will know a peace, a harmony, and a unity that the world just doesn’t understand. Unfortunately, submission isn’t something that we can just make happen. It’s not going to work in five minutes […] Continue reading…

Free From Condemnation

Condemnation is being declared guilty because you have broken the law of God and are deserving of the penalty of spiritual death.  It is the breaking of God’s law that makes you feel guilty. Then, because of that guilt, and because God is just, it means that you are deserving of death for breaking the […] Continue reading…
