The Deity of Jesus

Have you ever given up something for the benefit of someone else? Guys, maybe you wanted to watch the game but to keep the peace you went shopping or to a movie with your spouse? Or ladies, have you maybe wanted to sleep but you gave that up to take care of your family’s needs? We have all, at some point, given up something for the benefit of those we love, placing their needs or wants above our own. And, maybe even begrudgingly.. Yes, I’m sure there’s some of you, who have reminded those they have it up for, what a great sacrifice they’ve made, just for them! Often as leverage Come on, let’s be honest with each other, we’ve all done it!  Yes, I’ve been just as guilty as the next guy! No sense in denying it,  God knows the truth! And so does your spouse and family! I want to talk about the Deity of Christ, and what He sacrificed for us, the ones He loved. Our Lord Jesus emphasized that those who would be known as great in the Kingdom of God would be servants. It's o

Holier Than Thou? Unity in Church

We have all heard the phrase "Holier than thou." It's likely we have even encountered someone who is extremely opinionated or met someone who acts superior, believing their way is the right way, the only way. Maybe it was about a co-worker or boss. Or a member of the congregation, or even the pastor. Or maybe, just maybe, someone has even said this about you or I? Come on, let's all be honest with one another. I won't tell anyone, if.... you don't tell on me. haha It's ok to admit it, it doesn't make you or I, a bad person, it makes us human. Even as believers and followers of Christ, we're still human. We each have our own ideas and strong opinions. And it's ok to express them. But we cannot allow our ideas to become greater than God's plan, allowing our will to usurp the will of God. If there is to be unity in the body of Christ today, we must as individuals have an attitude of humility, cultivating a measured opinion of ourselv

God’s Love, Holy Spirit and the Church

Good Morning everyone, Love, it's a word we've all heard, we've all said. Love, one of the most over used words in the English language today. We’ve all heard others use it, freely, unemotionally, exclaiming I love that song, that outfit, those shoes. I love cake and ice cream. I love your hair. In fact, whether we admit or not, we have all likely even used those very same words ourselves. We’ve even used love towards people, I just love her. Or I absolutely love him. Words often used to describe one’s favorite actor or actress. Or perhaps the lead singer in their favorite band. We’ve all done it, including myself, at one time or another. Oh stop trying to act guiltless, you know you have too. But I ask you this, how can say we ‘love’ that person, without actually even knowing them or anything about them? What they’re like, their interests, personality. We can’t! The motivation behind God’s love for us, is when we see how much God loves us, we as servants,

If Jesus Is Calling - Do we Answer or Let It Go To Voicemail

Many people believe that Jesus' primary message was how to get to heaven after we die. But the wondrous works of Christ goes far beyond the incredible goal of saving an innumerable number of fallen humanity, but the total redemptive work of Christ is nothing less than redeeming God’s entire creation from the effects of sin. Paradise lost becomes Paradise regained.  As I have begun to take a deeper look at Jesus’ messages, it becomes clearer to me, He was teaching us, that everything must change. The ways in which we interact with one another, friends and family with whom we have conflict, the environment, people of other religions, our way of conducting business. Jesus was teaching us, to repent or rethink everything. While Jesus was teaching us the souls of humanity need saved, that was only a part of His message. The deeper message is, to me, that in order to save souls, we must also save the world. But let’s take even that a step further, we can’t save the world without


Have you ever known someone who claims one thing, yet demonstrates yet another? Come on, we have all seen it, whether a teacher, parent, co worker, and yes even a boss.   It often seems, they judge others by a different standard than their own conduct demonstrates. Perhaps, they don’t see it in themselves. Or maybe it’s because they think themselves above the law by which they judge others. We often see this in political arenas. The problem also exists in the church and among Christians. I know many of us, don’t like to admit or acknowledge it, but deep down, we know that it does. And it’s not a good look! I want to talk about our role as Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. To which a certain standard of conduct is expected, not only by others, but also from God. We have seen those who call themselves Christians, the ‘Holier than thou’ cr owd. They can quote Scripture, chapter and verse, as well as any teacher of the Gospel. And are quick to use it, to condemn others.

Peace - How Can We Have It Today?

It may appear in our world today that everything is going wrong. Poverty, disease, famine, religious tensions, political tensions, we have plenty to stress about.  Jesus told His disciples on the night of His betrayal, not to seek peace in our surroundings and circumstances but in Him. “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:2 Christ knew exactly what was coming in His own life, He also knows what is to come in ours. He wants us to have peace, in Him, no matter what is going on around us. In Him, we can have a peace, confidence and security that only comes from knowing the One to whom we go to in prayer. Regardless of our situation, we can obtain our in hearts and our minds guarded, by the ‘peace of God’, which surpasses all understanding. “He is our peace in the time of the storm.” “And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be w

Bible - The Source of Power

The Bible is the source of reconciliation and restoration! Emotional and physical healing. God’s Word does NOT return void. Isaiah 55:11 I’d like to speak candidly, I know that at one time or another, we have all been sick with a cold or flu, but that’s not what I’m speaking about here. And no, I don’t mean sick of your children pestering you for that newest ‘everybody else already has one except me’ video game either.  I’m speaking about an illness or disease. One that doctors aren’t certain about the outcome. Cancer, HIV, heart disease, diabetes and many other illnesses and diseases.  James 5:13-15 says “ Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray... Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up." It amazes me at the number of people, including a great many Christians, who will say “

Christians in the world

We live in a competitive society, competitiveness, in its proper form, can be healthy. But sometimes within it, is a ruthless drive to get ahead. Especially, ahead of the next guy, faster than the next guy, to have more than he has, better than his, and at times, stepping on him or over anyone that attempts to stand in our way.  For some, healthy competitiveness, becomes an obsession. In the information and technology age in which we live, social media, text and emails has become than ‘norm’, rather than social gatherings. Sadly, because of this ‘social interaction’ many people today, do not deep, meaningful and mutually satisfying relationships, When we place the focus our successes, our lives, our problems we lose sight of what being a follower of Christ is all about, others.  As Christians, our value and worth is in Jesus Christ, and the Word of God, not the self perpetuating values of this world, that devalues and depersonalizes others, seeing them only as too

Difficult Times and the Christian Life

We’ve all faced difficult times. Many may seem as there is no way we can overcome this one. And we cannot, not in our own strength. "You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied." 1 Samuel 17:45 And we’ve all heard the saying “ Hard times will either make you or break you.” Not true, if we know who we are in Christ. We are victors not victims, through Christ, who overcame the world. It’s impossible to get through this life unscathed, avoiding all form of stress and strife. Becoming a Christian does not exempt us from such things, as many teach today. In fact, it’s quite the opposite! Think of our struggles as an athletic opponent, do you really need to exert the same energy defeating an unworthy opponent, as you would a tough competitor? Of course not! Our adversary, Satan, doesn’t fight against those who are already his, but t

Pray For The Church of This Age

Many churches today, have substantially failed at preaching the Word of God, teaching sound doctrine. And in neglecting to share the full gospel of Christ, they have done a great injustice and disservice to the congregations of church.   “For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” 1 Corinthians 9:16 It is the responsibility of the leadership of the church to teach the whole gospel, even the parts that make the congregation squirm uncomfortably in their seats or that have been deemed irrelevant by many. None are qualified to select which books are considered to be ‘relevant!’ “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4 The Word of God is alwa
