In Israel’s Dead Sea nothing lives. The fresh, clean water from the Jordan River runs into it, but the water never leaves. The water becomes stagnant, lifeless, and useless. Far too many Christians are like the Dead Sea—they absorb all the love of our merciful Savior but never give out. Faith without works is dead faith—stagnant, lifeless, and useless.Read More
When God orchestrated the redemption of mankind, He went about it in a remarkable way. He did not release lightning bolts from the heavens, shake the ground with earthquakes nor did He assign a committee of angels to strategize the plan of salvation. God simply placed a Baby in the womb of a humble virgin and then He waited.Read More
When I begin to feel insignificant, I pick myself up with one of my favorite Bible verses. Romans 12:21 encourages us to not be overcome by evil, but to overcome evil with good. It is so easy to repay the bad things that people do – the insults, the criticisms, the rumors, and outright attacks – with our own brand of vengeance. But God says that vengeance belongs to Him... even when it’s tempting to take matters into our own hands!
Priorities determine what you do and don’t do, where you go and where you don’t go. If you are looking for the full and abundant life, it’s time to set proper priorities. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Where do you spend your time and energy? Where do you spend your money? This is where your priorities are focused.Read More
Have you heard the phrase; “the handwriting is on the wall?” The phrase comes from the Biblical story of Daniel, in which the prophet interprets some mysterious writings that the hand of God inscribed on the palace wall. In the early 18th century it became a phrase used to describe something that is inevitable… something that was destined to happen.Read More
So, what are you worried about? The Word tells us to be anxious for NOTHING! Yes, the world is full of stress and anxiety, chaos and budgets, bills and insanity. But GOD tells us to be anxious for what? Nothing!
Philippians 4:6-7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”Read More
Sooner or later, tragedy will strike the life of every human being. The phone will ring, or there will come a knock at the front door, and in a moment, the calm, peaceful life we have will become a raging storm. We will then face a crisis only the miracle power of God will see us through.Read More
As 2019 comes to a close, we have so many amazing things to be grateful for. As we reflect upon the goodness of the Lord, we are so grateful and humbled by the blessings and favor of the Lord that we have experienced this year. It seems like every day we hear of a life that was changed, and illness that was healed, a marriage that was restored. We are so honored to be able to take the unconditional love of Christ to every nation and to all generations.Read More
Christianity began with a song. When Christ was born in the manger, an angel went to a nearby field and announced the news to shepherds who were watching their flocks. “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men’ “ (Luke 2:13, 14).Read More
