Use Wisdom

Welcome!

In everything we do, we ought to use wisdom. This is something that comes from up above and is useful in every part of our life. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, meaning that God is the keeper of wisdom and he will give it to them who seek Him for it.

Scripture says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.” James 1:5

Independence Day

Welcome!

This weekend our nation is celebrating its Independence Day. This holiday is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, baseball games, reunions, and more. We do this to remind ourselves what it took to receive these freedoms and the sacrifices it takes for us to continue to enjoy them.

By His death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus Christ gave to the entire world an independence from the bondage of sin.

Romans 5:8 says “But God commanded his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Thanks be to God for Spiritual Independence, He set  us free and made us free indeed!

The Privilege of Sacrifice

Welcome

We live in a world today where most people believe that they are entitled or privileged, meaning that they can do and receive whatever they want.

The message that Jesus preached was not entitlement or privilege, but, that of sacrifice and self denial, which is not a popular message for today. Jesus said

“If any man will come after me. Let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23

If we want Jesus to be the center of our life, then we must make him the center of our life. He will not take any place except first place.

Oh for His Mercy!

Welcome

How often is it that you need the mercy of God?

If we honestly examine ourselves we will find out that we need His mercy more often than we think. Mercy is not for those who are innocent, but for it is for those who make mistakes, and for those who have missed the mark, that is who mercy is for!

Luke 18:9-14 Tells the story of two men who go up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisse the other a publican. At the conclusion of their prayers only one left the temple righteous in the eyes of God. The Publican humbled himself in repentance asking God to forgive him of all his sins. He found out that he could not trust himself or anyone else but God. Just as the publican experienced the mercies of God so can we, through humility and repentance.

The Day of Pentecost!

Welcome

Jesus told His disciples to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Holy Spirit. After Jesus ascended to heaven, His disciples went to the upper room and on the day of Pentecost while they were praying the Holy Spirit came and they were all filled with the Spirit and spoke in  tongues and prophesied.

When the crowd heard and saw the Spirit in action, they were convicted to the point of asking, “What do do we do?”

Then Peter said unto them, “Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Acts 2:38)

The day of Pentecost is the birthday of the New Testament church. On this day we take the time to remember and celebrate this great occasion, when the Lord fulfilled His promise and poured out His Spirit for all. He has made a way for you too, if we follow His instructions, wait, and be willing to receive. The Holy Spirit is for you!

A New Day

Welcome

The Lord has given each of us another day, and this is truly a blessing. With this day comes the opportunity to learn, grow, and change. Each day we have a choice to become more Christ like in our personality, attitude, and actions. Use today as a day to become a new and better person in Christ Jesus, However, this is not done by intellect or skill but by becoming a new creation in Him.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away, all things become new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

Live and be a Blessing!

Welcome

May 10th is Mother’s day. It is a day we have set aside in order to show our mothers how much we love and appreciate them. This is a day for giving flowers, cards and candy to the sweetest woman we know, our mom. We can’t repay you for the nine months of pregnancy, the labor pains, diaper changes, meals prepared, first aid, taxi rides, corrections, counseling sessions, instructions, hugs, and all the prayers prayed for us but we can begin with showing you in our own special way how truly grateful we are.

May the Lord give us the wisdom to behave the way you taught us; to be responsible for our actions, to clean up behind ourselves, to close what we have opened, to pick up what we have dropped, to not get on your nerves or disappoint you, and to be there for you in your time of need like you were there for us in our time of need. Mother’s you mean the world to us  and we celebrate you on your own special day.  Happy Mothers Day to you.

The bible says,

“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them a.” (Proverbs 31:29 NIV)
