Would You Do Service For Jesus Your King?

Would You Do Service For Jesus Your King? We often sing the song, “There’s Power in the Blood.” I love anointed and scriptural worship songs. Worship of the Lord should always include the truth and the praise for His goodness. The truth is that Our Heavenly Father sent His only begotten son to the earth in the form of a man to…

Working With God

Working With God Matthew 12:30 (NKJV) says, “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.” Humanity is, by and large, fickle. People have a tendency to be all for something one day, then when the wind shifts they are off on something else. As the church has grown away from the…

Quick & Painless

Quick & Painless We are blessed to live in a place with four beautifully distinct seasons of weather, which makes it easier to understand why the Lord used the illustration of seasons so often in His Word. Look at this familiar passage of scripture, Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.” Though there are…

Just Keep Going…

Just Keep Going… Don’t quit. Don’t give up. Just keep going. These are things we all need reminded of sometimes, even as Christians. Galatians 6:9 encourages us with this, “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” In other words, don’t get burned out or exhausted from trying…

Scattered & Faint

Scattered & Faint “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” Matthew 9:36 (NKJV) The devil always attacks the plan of God. As we see so often in scripture, he always gets to God’s people by deceiving them. The thing about deception is that unless you…

The Choices We Make

The Choices We Make “So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.’” (Acts 16:31) In a society where the popular mantra is, “do you,” often times the effects of that are forgotten. Sin is easy; it always was. It’s easier to give in to the flesh, and just do whatever it is…

Doers, Not Observers

Doers, Not Observers Have you ever watched some sort of competition or sporting event? Did you notice that even if you rooted for the winner, you didn’t receive the prize or get any accolades? The trophy is reserved for those who compete and win, not those who watch. I don’t ever want to do anything and not get the most I can…

Take a Closer Look

Take a Closer Look Recently my husband and I took a couple of our friends to an art museum for the first time. Art is something that is very near and dear to my heart, as I’ve been an artist my whole life and an art teacher for over 11 years. For me, when I walk through an art gallery I see…
