Tourist or Follower

The Apostle Paul explains to a young follower of Jesus named Timothy, “the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others”. 2 Timothy 2:2 In other words, what we believe about Jesus MUST be shared with others.  True followers […]

Plow Through

I recently heard the song “If You’re Going Through Hell” by Rodney Atkins and like I always say, there is a devotion in everything; this song is no exception. We all have times where we feel like we are going through hell in one shape or form. Things just keep happening to us, one after […]

Great Blessings

A portion of Luke 12:15 explains, “Life does not consist in an abundance of possessions”.  While Jesus was teaching in a poor community one day, a man decided to interrupt the spiritual teaching and ask Jesus to make a moral, if not a legal, ruling in his family dispute centered around an inheritance.

Surrender

Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. Why is money such a delicate topic inside the Church? Friends, I do not think we need to view our faith and our money in a divorced way. If we boil down all our concerns, what I believe is possibly the […]
