Looking at the 3rd chapter of Luke, a contemporary application of the prophecy fulfilled in the ministry of John the Baptist struck me. Verses 4-6 read,
“As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,
‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness:… Continue

The Scripture I want to look at in this blog actually addresses only men. However, I believe ladies can read over our shoulders and get a firm grasp on some things that we need God to do in our marriages. My experience is that ladies are much better at doing that than men.
The verse is 1 Peter 3:7.
“Likewise, husbands, live with your… Continue

Is it possible that Thanksgiving is more than a holiday – more than turkey, football, family, etc? For many years, people of faith have used the acronym, ACTS as a guide for prayer – “A” being for adoration; “C” being for confession; and “S” being for supplication. The “T” in that acronym stands for Thanksgiving – as demonstrated in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” and in 1 Timothy 2:1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that… Continue

Pray for workers on the ground who are celebrating the holidays away from dear family and friends. Pray that the Lord would be near to them and fill their hearts with gratitude and joy despite the longing to be home and/or with loved ones during the holiday season.
Pray for opportunities for believers across the city to invite cousin friends to join in on their Thanksgiving meal. Pray that believers would be intentional and bold in sharing their thanks for what God has done in their… Continue

What a joy it is to have that precious little grandchild come running into your arms with hugs and kisses. The six-year-old calling to tell you she lost her first tooth or your seven-year-old grandson excited about making his first goal in his soccer game.
In addition to senior discounts, grandchildren are one of the rewards of growing older. Mary H.… Continue

As a devoted Muslim, Ibrahim was always ready to defend the Quran. So, when a man walked into his small store in Yemen one day in 1997 and asked him a startling question — “Have you ever read the Bible?” — he proudly told the man that he believed the Bible was full of error and distortion.
At the end of their conversation, the man gave Ibrahim a New Testament and urged him to read it for himself.…

I have said, I want to be clear headed enough that I am still able to pray for people around me, even when I am completely disabled physically. But many of you will identify with something that has been happening to me. I will be talking about something that interests me and won't remember the name of someone I have read and respected for years. Or I will step out into our garage, but won't remember why I am there. Last week someone… Continue

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord
I am sending this message after receiving a revelation from the Lord to start a 3 days fasting (The Esther Fast) regarding the situation in Lebanon. To know more about the 2019 Lebanese protests please read here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Lebanese_protests

I took my pastor to lunch recently, celebrating Pastor Appreciation Month. In the course of the conversation, I asked him how he felt the specific call of God to be a pastor, since he had previously been a Student Minister and a Church Starter. His answer was similar to mine – an early call to vocational ministry, made specific in time. I had taken a “Pastor Appreciation” survey on social media, assuming that pastors would want their church members to pray for them. I asked, "What should be… Continue

2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

- Repentance is more concerned with what changes inside than outside:
- Begins with a response to the Holy Spirit (often sensed by feeling sorrow or grief over our sin)
- But must be ore than that emotional response; our sadness must produce a cleansed, pure "heart"
- ...and that must produce a change of mind (think differently; Romans 12:2)
- If we confess our sins is more than saying "sorry"
- We must…

Several years ago, when the LORD was encouraging and training myself and my church in prayer, He spoke to me in my prayer time before Services on Sunday morning. In that prayer time He directed me to ask our membership, during the invitation, to list the names of the friends and family members whom they knew to be lost on a tablet of paper I had placed on the LORD’s Table.
My instructions to the church were to print first and last names legibly. It wasn’t long before the people had…
