The Responsibility of True Riches • Luke 16:10-13

The Responsibility of True Riches • Luke 16:10-13

You may have heard the phrase, “money makes the world go round.” In some sense, this is true. It seems that to get ahead in life, and to get things done in this world, you need money. There are things that are more valuable than money though, like your time and your health. You can’t […]

Turn From Wickedness and Live • Ezekiel 18:21-32

Turn From Wickedness and Live • Ezekiel 18:21-32

Can God ever forgive me despite all the wicked and evil things which I have done? This is a trustworthy saying, worthy of full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners and to save even the worst of sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). The LORD God takes no pleasure in seeing wicked people die. God […]

God Loves You, Mom! • Proverbs 23:22, 25

God Loves You, Mom! • Proverbs 23:22, 25

Do not despise your mother, and let your mother be glad and rejoice. Does this describe our attitudes toward our mothers? The Bible tells us mothers are to be honored and not despised. Mom won’t always be around, so while we still can, let’s live like Jesus. Honor her. Love her. Take care of her. […]

The Supreme Being • Revelation 19:16

The Supreme Being • Revelation 19:16

“And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, ‘KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS’” Strong and powerful people or objects put a certain amount of trust and faith in our hearts and minds. When a really good team is playing against a really bad team, there is rarely any […]

Entrusted to Him • 2 Timothy 1:12

Entrusted to Him • 2 Timothy 1:12

To entrust means you no longer make the decisions, you no longer run things, someone else does. We talk about “entrusting” things to people but we micromanage. That’s okay, in certain situations it works just fine, not with the Lord though. It’s all or nothing with Him. Do you call the shots for your kids […]

Test and Teaching • Judges 3:1-6

Test and Teaching • Judges 3:1-6

We tend to hate resistance and opposition. Technology has raised the bar on our expectations so high that our culture is too impatient to cope with the confinements of restriction. We say and think things like, “It takes too much time! Why is this being intentionally being made difficult?!” It’s not because there’s urgency to […]

A Sufficient Power Source • Acts 8:14-16

“They sent them Peter & John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. For He had not yet fallen upon any of them.…” Whenever we purchase a phone they usually come with a few accessories, none as important as the power cable. Same is true when we come […]

What Are You Doing About It? • Deuteronomy 6

What Are You Doing About It? • Deuteronomy 6

I’m still thinking about the Men’s Conference. We go to conferences and retreats and so quickly forget what we heard. What’s the last thing God spoke to you? What are you doing with it? In Deuteronomy 6, the Lord told the Israelites that they were to teach His commandments to their children, when they sat […]

He Must Be Regarded As Holy • Leviticus 10:3

He Must Be Regarded As Holy • Leviticus 10:3

A great work of God was taking place in the nation of Israel as Aaron and his sons were consecrated for ministry. God’s presence filled the tabernacle and God Himself lit the fire on the altar, consuming the burnt offering. God was showing the nation that He accepted their commitment and dedication to Him. But […]

Listen up! Pay Attention! • Matthew 13:15-16

Listen up! Pay Attention! • Matthew 13:15-16

Since we have two ears and one mouth, we should devote less time to talking and twice as much time to listening. We ought to prioritize to spend time praying, reading, hearing and sharing God’s Word. Thereby our faith increases. Jesus says, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Few have “ears to […]
