Laid Hands on Them…

Laid Hands on Them… Fellowship is amazing. We are made, in the eyes of God, to be with one another. We are intended to be with God, in His presence, with His children. Don’t think for a moment the evil-doers don’t know and fully understand this aspect of the Truth, they do. There is little else that can bring us together better than being together in His presence. There is little else that can strengthen our faith, our love and provide us the platform of repentance, that leads to redemption,…

He First Loved Us…

He First Loved Us… Who is kind, who loved us first and only wants the best for us. That doesn’t mean that life will be a bowl of marshmallows and ambrosia, no it means that He loves us and we are to depend upon Him for all. Recently, there was a podcast where the host explained that if you wanted to know if Jesus was real you had to follow Him. Well, not too many of us actually follow His Word, follow His actions nor do we even respond when…

Be Bold…

Be Bold… What do we fear, aside from everything? Why do we fear everything in our path? Is this life what it appears to be or are we on a journey from the point of conception to the end of time? Reaching the point of disgust with fear is what some refer to as “rock bottom”. When one has had enough of fear they turn away. The sad part is, the deep, dark fear is often replaced with a more subtle form of fear. Fear of the future and guilt…

Relationship With…

Relationship With… Most all of us, with few exceptions, have very deep, meaningful relationships that allow us to “let our hair down”, speak in ways that we normally don’t speak in “polite company” or any company at all. Some, once again very few, are so comfortable with people and their relationship with God they are the exact same in the most intimate of moments with their bestest as with someone they just met. Having spent the last couple of months studying the first few chapters of Acts it appears the…

Remission of Sins…

Remission of Sins… As the days go by and we either move closer to God or further from God, He never changes; He never leaves us. We can study His Word, we can breathe in His Word and we can do our level best to reflect His Light and we will be judged by Him for He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. With few exceptions during the dark years nothing of this was ever a thought. Getting closer to God was…

Follow Without Question…

Follow Without Question… Simon, would be known as Peter, followed Jesus Christ without question. Simon, while he was stubborn and hard-headed, always followed Jesus as soon as the Word was uttered. Simon / Peter dropped what he was doing and acted immediately. When we are first introduced to Simon, who would be named Peter, he simply did what Jesus Christ spoke to him. And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were…

Prayer Life…

Prayer Life… You don’t know what you’ve got, ’til it’s gone. Or said another way…You don’t get thirsty ’til the well runs dry. Not sure who originally uttered these words but they sure are true. This is how we slip back into living a sinful life. We miss a day of prayer, that becomes two or we miss a day of spending time with Jesus, the Father and asking for guidance from the Holy Spirit and the next you know…the heart darkens, the spirit is left empty and the mind…

Losing Connection…

Losing Connection… When we lose connection with the Lord, our Savior Jesus Christ our heart, spirit and mind begin to wander off. They beginning acting as if they know something when, in fact, we learn very quickly we know nothing. There could be words that manifest in our mind that have been spoken in our presence nor have they been part of any thought process. This doesn’t mean it can’t and won’t appear. The enemy is always prowling around and looking for cracks to infiltrate and when our prayer life…
