Jesus is…

“Did God actually say?” That is the question that brought the fall of man, and it is the same question that causes us to doubt the Word of God today. But as much as the enemy causes people to question what the Bible says, a little while after his initial question, God told him that... Continue Reading →

DEVOTION: The Blood of Jesus

I woke up at five this morning, and had thoughts of the blood of Jesus. It seemed unusual to me, to be thinking specifically about the blood of Jesus so early in the morning. My next thought was, I should read Spurgeon's book on the power of the blood today. I got my phone and... Continue Reading →

How’s Your Relationship?

A relationship with Jesus is common vernacular in the church today. It is such a common phrase you probably do not give much thought to it. But have you ever stopped to ponder the meaning of the phrase? We all know the implication behind the phrase is salvation. After that, it is about what living... Continue Reading →

Resurrection Reflection

Matthew 28:1-8 NKJV “Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and... Continue Reading →

HE IS RISEN

HE HAS RISEN INDEED! "He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay."Matthew 28:6 NKJV I woke up this morning to the sound of many birds chirping outside my widow. The sound of birds, singing the glory of His resurrection, I thought to myself. This... Continue Reading →

Good Friday

When I was a kid my church did an Easter play every year and every year I cried during the crucifixion. When the movie Jesus of Nazareth came out I cried watching them whip Jesus and when the Passion of the Christ came out I saw it in a theater. Watching the Passion of the... Continue Reading →

Morning Devotion: Redeemed

"Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy," Psalm 107:2 NKJV Redemption is a beautiful thing. We are undeserving, yet, God sent His son to die on the cross to atone for our sins that we would be forgiven and spend eternity with Him. Titus... Continue Reading →

Morning Devotion: Triumph

"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." II Corinthians 2:14 NKJV What an amazing promise.

Christ, the Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand. The words of the hymn by Edward Mote began playing in... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Finished

"It is finished!" John 19:30 NKJV It is finished! Three of the most powerful words in all of Scripture. What was finished? The work of redemption that Jesus came to do. Man's separation from God. The Sacrificial system. The power of death, hell and the grave. When we think about those three words, there is... Continue Reading →

Morning Devotion: Reconciled

"For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life." Romans 5:10 NKJV To be reconciled to God means to go from being His enemy to His friend (Vine's Expository Dictionary). If you look up the... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Know

"Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Heart

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life. He who despises the word will be destroyed, But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded." Proverbs 13:12‭-‬13 NKJV Those are not verses you typically find on a coffee cup or in a journal but they really... Continue Reading →

Evening Devotion: Jesus

"The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:" Matthew 1:1 NKJV The Hebrew Bible ends with the books of Chronicles. The books that tell the history of Israel.

True Worship

A familiar story in the gospel of John is Jesus's encounter with the woman at the well. What's interesting is the topic she brings up once she perceives that Jesus is a prophet. John 4:19-26 NKJV “The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain,... Continue Reading →
