DEVOTION: One New Man

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:13 NKJV There is much division in the world today. And sadly, the same kind of division has come into the Church. That should not be so. In Christ, we are all one; Jew... Continue Reading →

DEVOTION: Incline Your Ear

My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Proverbs 4:20 NKJV This verse and much of Proverbs talks about the Word of God, the Bible.

DEVOTION: Be Still

"Be still, and know I am God."Isaiah 46:10a I don't know about you, but when I go to bed at night, I can never get my mind to stop.

Profile of a False Teacher (Jude 1:9-13)

Have you ever looked at someone and just knew something was off? When you found out what did the thought of I KNEW IT! Come out of your mouth embarrassingly.

Contending for The Faith (Jude 1:1-3)

When I look at America today, it is shocking to see what is going on in our nation. From the promotion of things of the vilest sort to corruption in all levels of leadership, the state of the government can seem hopeless. But this post is not about that. As shocking as the state of... Continue Reading →

A Novel Without A Main Character, A Book Without THE Message

Have you ever read or heard something that was so thought-provoking it was on your mind for days, weeks, or even months? That was me several years ago when I read several books by various authors. A repeated theme was rethinking Christianity; in these books, they invited the reader into conversations, which challenged Christians to... Continue Reading →

Supporting Weary Saints And Saving Sinners (James 5:13-20)

As we come to the end of James’s letter, it is essential to review the entire chapter to rightly understand the last eight verses in the correct context. James chapter one deals with handling trials and temptations and the importance of doing what the Scripture says, not merely listening to it. Chapter two warns against... Continue Reading →

Should We Celebrate Pride?

 "Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18 ESV Pride and haughtiness are characteristics of the age we live in; being proud is seen as a good thing, yet the Bible repeatedly condemns pride (Prov. 11:2, Js. 4:6, 1 Jn. 2:16, Prov. 16:5).
