Jesus Wasn’t a Loner

Jesus Wasn’t A Loner Jesus wasn’t a loner. And God didn’t make mankind to be loners either. When God made Adam and placed him in the Garden of Eden, the Bible says He came and spoke with him. God made man to communicate. God gave us a voice and a personality for a reason. We’re humans. We’re carefully created, beautifully crafted in…

Waiting On God

Waiting On God Faith is such a wonderful thing we are given. It’s a blessing to be endued with the ability to have hope for more than we have right now, and have the confidence that while it seems as though we don’t have it currently, in time with patience it will happen. This is what Hebrews 11:1 tells us faith is.…

The Year of Double!

The Year of Double! Jeremiah 29:11 promises a plan for the lives of those who follow the Lord. He’s got a purpose for each one of us individually and for the body of Christ as a whole. It’s important to get His direction on things. One of the ways we will learn how to be led by the Spirit into the plans…

The Illusion Of Freedom

The Illusion Of Freedom Deuteronomy 30:19 (NKJV) says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” We live in a time when it’s an increasingly popular idea that the decision of a persons’s will or desire is…

The Deceived Church

The Deceived Church 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 (NKJV) says, “3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or…

You Make Or Break You

You Make or Break You God is not in control. He is not sitting on His throne with a remote control or puppet strings determining which way we turn, what we say, what we do, where we do it, etc. He isn’t a slave master. He isn’t a dictator. Psalm 115:16 writes, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the…

What’s Our Motive?

What’s Our Motive? I love the testimony from 2 Kings Chapter 4 of the faithful Shunammite woman. Her testimony demonstrates a heart condition worth aspiring towards. The Old Testament prophet Elisha would frequently travel through Shunem, a small town on the way to Mt. Carmel. You may recall that Mt. Carmel was significant for Elisha because his mentor, Elijah had defeated the…

Privilege Equals Responsibility

Privilege Equals Responsibility Privilege equals responsibility, or at least it ought to. Sometimes in society people get away with having privilege without responsibility, but that’s not a principle found in Scripture. 1 Corinthians 3:8 tells us that each will receive wages according to their labor and Galatians 6:5 tells us that each must bear his own load. We are responsible for and…
