The Gift of Death

The Gift of Death Genesis 3:24: So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. Death is a hard thing for many to understand. If there is a God, how could a loving God allow death?…

Nothing New

Nothing New Genesis 1:31-2:1 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Get Wisdom

Get Wisdom Proverbs 4:7 says, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom, and in all your getting, get understanding.” Lately, I’ve found myself studying the wisdom scriptures found in the book of Proverbs and boy oh boy is this book wise!

The Privilege of Knowing Jesus

The Privilege of Knowing Jesus We’ve all seen or been involved in relationships where someone has been taken for granted, whether it was us or someone else.

Have It Now

Have It Now Hebrews 6:11-12 (NKJV) And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

The Rich Get Richer

The Rich Get Richer Matthew 13:12 (NKJV) says, “For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.” It’s scriptural! I heard a man in a coffee shop say, “That’s the way of the world, the rich get richer.” Well actually that’s the…

Greatest Deliverance

The Greatest Deliverance Colossians 1:13-14 (NKJV) He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
