I Am Not Ashamed

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the Gospel the righteousness of God is revealed–a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith. (Romans 1:16-17)

Let Nothing Turn Me Around

And He said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why for Christ’s sake I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Who Will You Serve?

But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. Then the people answered, ‘Far be it from us to forsake the LORD to serve gods!'” (Joshua 24:15-16)

The Mercy of God

“All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4-5)

Spiritual Boxing As Heavy Weight Christians

A Beautiful Necessary Distraction

“As a nation, out of this terrible tragedy, God has visited grace upon us, for He has allowed us to see where we’ve been blind. He has given us the chance, where we’ve been lost, to find our best selves. We may not have earned it, this grace, with our rancor and complacency and short-sightedness and fear of each other—but we got it all the same.” – Barack Obama

Tainted Tongue: Gossipers

“Thus, they bring judgment on themselves because they have broken their first pledge. Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense saying things they out not to” (1 Timothy 5:12-13).

Rooted and Grounded in God’s Word?

“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on His laws day and night. That person is like a tree planted by steams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatsoever they do prosper. Not so the wicked! They are chaff that the wind blows away.” (Psalm 1:1-4)

Exercise of Hope

Sister Copeland, one of my spiritual mothers, sent this prayer title ‘Exercise of Hope’ to me on July 26, 2021. God, you make everything better—even waiting. Outside your influence, I grow inpatient, sometimes even second-guessing good decision when I have to wait for an answer prayer.

If We Remain Silent Stones Will Cry Out

Wickedness in our corrupt society should not prevent us from sharing the Gospel of Jesus. Sadly, some have walked away from serving and from an authentic worship to God; and others have chosen to remain silent despite Matthew 28:19-20.

Interior Designing the Temple

Our lives constantly change to adapt to living in an ungodly world with ungodly laws enacted by ungodly politicians and supported by wolves in sheep’s clothing. Regardless, converted Christians’ minds should always evolve to stay within the parameter of the word of God.

“Etiquette Tips” for Christian Facebook Users

Written By Emily Post

Don’t gossip. The rules of the tongue apply to the keyboard as well. Give care that what you say is true as well as helpful. If James were to write James 3:6 today, it might read as follows, “And the keyboard is a fire, a world of iniquity…”. Lying, gossiping, stating as truth what we do not know to be true, etc. are as wrong on Facebook as they are when speaking to another face to face.

Spiritual Pruning, Dare To Be Different

“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had not root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop-a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.” (Matthew 13:3-9)

True Beauty

Our thoughts on the definition of “True Beauty” is not important since GOD is the ultimate authority on this subject matter. His thoughts supersede ours as stated in Isaiah 55:8-9, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
