Be Holy…

Be Holy… Do we live holy lives? Are we walking in the full knowledge and light of Jesus Christ? Is it possible to achieve such a lofty height? When the devil invades our mind and we are triggered by one of a million, trillion things that happen around us we step out, maybe just for a nanosecond, we step out of the holiness of God. This is the difference between us flesh dwellers and Jesus Christ. While Jesus did walk among us, as man, He remained perfect, we, on the…

The Blind Made To See…

The Blind Made To See… Our wicked ways keep us from seeing the Truth, the Way and the Life. We are blinded by many things, many distractions the devil makes for us. We are so blind that our vision begins to flatter and we no longer see anything of value or worth. We see the sons and daughters of God as nothing more than cannon fodder, whores and tools or drug addicts, drunks, losers and a host of other devil inspired names. It doesn’t have to be this way. We…

It Is Always There…

It Is Always There… How many people have we seen suffering with addiction? Was it TV, exercise, chocolate, pornography, sex, work, food, sleep, alcohol, pets, cars, sports / football, drugs and the list goes on and on. How many people? We as followers of Jesus Christ are responsible for pointing this out. We are responsible for bringing this to their attention. We are responsible for loving them until they can love themselves. We are responsible for showing them how Jesus Christ has brought us back from the edge and given…

Our Changed Lives…

Our Changed Lives… Our tongue, the smallest member of the body, is the most reckless and the member that is most difficult to control. Our hands and feet are not difficult to control and, in comparison to our tongue, do little damage in our day-to-day movements. When our mind is not on God, which makes our heart to harden a little, then the tongue has no means of sounding like Jesus. If we don’t sound like Jesus how would people around us know we are followers. Sure the works we…

Not Lacking In Any Gift…

Not Lacking In Any Gift… We are children of God. The followers of Jesus Christ have been given the greatest gift anyone could ever receive. It was freely given and we, as Ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven should freely give. The gift of mercy, grace and salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ, is not something we earned or that we even deserve, it just is. We should share these gifts with all we come in contact. We should pass them along and teach others about these gifts that…

Joy Made Full…

Joy Made Full… The branch of the vine that’s who we are. We are not the vine but the branch. When we accept this position life is much easier. We are not in charge and we can never be in charge. Once we accept the Lord, Jesus Christ, as our savior, we immediately give up the “front seat” and move to the rear. He, Jesus Christ, is in charge and gives us what we need. As the vine, and not the branch, we are dependent upon the branch for the…

Black Walnuts…Free Fruit From Heaven

Black Walnuts…Free Fruit From Heaven When we discuss harvesting what does that look like to most people? If a person has ever harvested black walnuts it becomes ever so clear, in short order, that while the fruit is “free” and easily accessible it involves real work to get the blessing of the “meat” of the nut. After studying several videos and how others are harvesting their black walnuts it is time to give it a try. This is no different than going into the field, as an Ambassador of the…

No Honor From Men…

No Honor From Men… Praying in public, like at a restaurant before a meal, has always been in question. While it is a practice that has recently been incorporated into daily life, it is still a bit uncomfortable. Having other witness prayer, in public, seems to be two-edged sword. On the one hand it glorifies God and blesses the food to His service. Then again, others around may see it as something other than it’s intention – nothing more than blessing the food. Others may see it as “boasting” or…

We Ask With Expectation…

We Ask With Expectation… Father God, as we lift Your name above all names and place You above our lives and all of the earth we thank You for renewing our mercies every morning. Father God, it is You who loved us first and it is You that calls us by name. We sing Your praises and walk in the Light that shines from Heaven and Lights all the earth. Father God, it is Your Word that fills our souls, that fills our heart and sustains our life. Father God,…

Put Out Into The Deep…

Put Out Into The Deep… When we are separated from God He always knows. God sees our heart not our flesh. God sees who we are, not who we think we are. When we sit in the church pew, God knows who is sitting there. God knows if we are plugged into the Word or if we are waiting to get to Cracker Barrel or the game or the yard work or whatever is keeping us from Him and His Word. He knows it. Now it happened that while the…
