INDEPENDENCE DAY

Today the 4th of July is Independence Day in the USA.  On this day we celebrate the day we became an independent nation.  The Founding Fathers of this Nation declared their independence from the King of England, not wanting to be any longer under the King’s rule.  That sort of thing has been going on for countless years, in that people want to be free to make their own choices and live as they choose.  We call it “freedom”.  But what is freedom, really?

IS THE GOSPEL YOU PREACH “GOOD NEWS”?

Whether we realize it or not, every Christian is a preacher of the Gospel.  Preaching the Gospel is not only done by speaking.  Our actions speak much louder than words, and if the life you live before others is not in line with the Word of God, then obviously you are not preaching the same Gospel that Christ Jesus preached.

MOBILE FORTRESS

If you were being attacked, you would feel much safer if you had a fortress around you, right?  In days of old, people built massive fortresses to protect them and their loved ones.  Some were so large they could encompass an entire community within their walls, and woe to anyone who dared to breach those walls to harm them. But a fortress had one serious drawback: you had to stay there in order to enjoy its protection.  You see, it just wasn’t possible to pick it up and carry it with you, so you were pretty much stuck in there.  What we really need is a mobile fortress….

JESUS IS COMING FOR HIS CHURCH

We often hear the phrase “Jesus is coming for His church”  But which church is He coming back for?  The one YOU belong to obviously, right? Well that depends if it is HIS church.  How exactly do we determine which church that will be?  Will He be coming for the people who attend the church with the highest steeple, or the biggest congregation? How about the group with the biggest coffee bar? Perhaps it will be the one with the most “prosperity”, whose members have as many jets as a hound dog has fleas? Continue Reading »

FEAR NOT !

If God is who He says He is, then why do those who profess to be His children have fear in their lives?  Maybe you haven’t given that much thought lately, but you really need to, because once that question is settled in your life, EVERYTHING changes. Continue Reading »

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Why is it that people delight in making even the simplest thing complicated?  Why, I believe if you gave engineers the task of making a square block, they could make a two thousand step operation out of it. And in doing so, there would be at least a thousand places where a defect could occur.  Let me give you a recent example. Continue Reading »

THE PRICE OF ANXIETY

Worry and anxiety are subjects that I have over 40 years of experience with, so that makes me an expert of sorts, doesn’t it?  However, admittedly my experience is somewhat out of date, because when I came to the LORD in 1993, He invited me to cast my cares upon Him, so I did.  Simple, huh?  Don’t you wish everything was this easy? Continue Reading »

HOW TO HAVE PEACE

Today’s article is for people who continually live under stress.  There are many things that rob our peace and cause frustration in our lives.  One of the big ones involves time,  Funny how everyone has 24 hours in their day, yet many say “they just don’t have enough time” to do all they need (or THINK) they need to do.  Have you noticed how time is speeding up?

NEVER GIVE UP!

The expression “never give up” is about as old as the hills, but it’s some of the best advice ever heard.  All of us face difficulties in our lives, and without doubt many times we have given up on something, or at least wanted to.  Today I’d like to talk about that. Continue Reading »

BY FAITH

We hear a great deal in the Bible about faith, and we know it is impossible to please God without faith.  But hearing about faith and actually acting upon it is an entirely different thing altogether.  It is written in Hebrews 10:38, Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Living by faith; exactly what does that mean?  Living by faith is not just an occasional thing, but a continual action that involves stepping continually into the unknown.  It’s like having three doors before you and having to choose only one. Each door has something entirely different behind it, and the doors are not labeled. One has a hungry lion behind it, one has everything you normally expect from life, and the other has a new adventure you’ve never been on or even thought of before. Now choose one… Continue Reading »
