Which Is Your Reasonable Service…

Which Is Your Reasonable Service… Prayers are powerful. Prayers are one of the greatest tools, greatest weapons and greatest gifts from God. When we pray life changes. When we pray people look different. When we pray chores become effortless. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. ~ Romans 12:1 KJB We give our lives to God, in the name of Jesus Christ. When we commit ourselves to God, to Jesus…

And They Took Of The Fruit Of The Land…

And They Took Of The Fruit Of The Land… We listen for God’s Word, God’s voice and when it comes, a lot of the time, we act like it’s not true or accurate or that it is somehow lacking. Why do we readily accept lies from the devil, when he attacks us in our mind, our heart or even in our hand, but we struggle to believe the Truth from God? That is a mystery that keeps a lot of our friends and family in bondage. And they took of…

Choose You This Day…

Choose You This Day… Our Creator, God in Heaven, sent us His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from ourselves. Who among us is willing to tell others of this Good News? Is this not one of the main tenants of being a follower, a believer in Jesus Christ? Why is this such a challenge for most of us? Could it be that we are approaching people in a way that shuts them down or doesn’t allow them to hear what is being said? If we approach…

Died In His Own Sin…

Died In His Own Sin… When does one receive an inheritance from our parents, our Mom and Dad? Would our Mom be responsible for delivering an inheritance to us in the absence of our Dad? What does an inheritance mean at this time in history? For most of us, in the Western “developed” world, we think of an inheritance in terms of money, in rare occasions we think of it in terms of land, a farm or some other more meaningful, larger estate type inheritance. In the days of before…

Here Now, Ye Rebels…

Here Now, Ye Rebels… Giving Thanks, honor and glory to the Lord, our God, is not asking too much, is it? To simply remember the things that happen from the hands of this vessel, we do not do. Our Father, Our God, the Great I Am causes them to happen and we are to remember and give Him the praise, the honor and the glory for such abundance, for joy and for life itself. When we don’t give the Lord, through the name of Jesus Christ, the praise and we…

Come Out Ye Three…

Come Out Ye Three… Our God is a loving, caring, generous God. Our God is also a God who demands respect, honor and our undivided devotion, love and obedience. It’s the undivided part that gets a lot of us in trouble and where we find ourselves knee-deep in sin. When we look away from God, when we begin doing things, creating things and going places of our own accord, this is when we get into trouble and our God can become angry. If your Mom and/or your Dad tell you,…

To Come Near Unto Him…

To Come Near Unto Him… What is the cause of our complaints against the Lord, our God? Is it our actions or is it the commands of the Lord? When we turn our back on the Lords commands are we not living in sin? The greatest commandment of all was appointed by Jesus Christ. One of the most important aspects of this commandment is thus…”On these two commandments hang all the laws and the prophets.” Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt…

I Will Not Cast Them Away…

I Will Not Cast Them Away… As we walk through our days we sometimes get off course, forget that we are serving a loving, caring and deeply kind God. Our God loves us, wants the absolute best for us and wants us to do our best to live a sin free life. We will never be sin free, however, we don’t have to stay in sin and we should never, ever forget to repent and confess of our sins. If we lie to our parents for breaking a prized heirloom…

Concerning This Thing I Pleaded…

Concerning This Thing I Pleaded… We usually see God’s hand in our life in the rearview mirror. It is only in a review of our circumstances we can see what God has done for us. What we see, at the time, as pain is usually nothing more than a thorn in our side. Yes, it is uncomfortable, embarrassing and sometimes there is actual, physical pain, but once we get to the other side we see how God has made our path brighter, straighter and drawn us closer to Him. Concerning…

Atonement For Your Souls…

Atonement For Your Souls… When God looks at us, God sees Jesus Christ. Those that are saved by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Only Son of God, we are set free because of the atonement made by Jesus Christ on our behalf. Our sins are not hidden from God, but they are covered, cleansed, by the blood of Jesus Christ. We can see that God put all this in place long before Jesus was born, long before He lived and long before Jesus was crucified and resurrected. For the…
