God’s Will

Have you ever heard someone say they were right in the will of God and it seemed to you that they weren’t?
I see it all the time. I don’t believe a person can be a purposefully sinning and be doing God’s will.
What is sin but to go against the will of God, Continue reading

The message you get when you meditate on God’s word

Last night at church I made the statement that all of the Bible is inspired by God and has a message and purpose for us.
I was challenged to find purpose in Josh 12.
I’ll admit that it is a bit difficult to keep your mind on what is being read and not drift off into some other thought. But then, that may prove my point.
Josh 12 says: Continue reading

Just Preach Jesus

I saw part of a video on Fb the other day. It was all about conspiracy and anti-this and anti-that. The statements are given as if they are fact without viable proof that they are.
There were no documents presented, no pictures, no quote; just talk about the things as if they were so. Continue reading

Kindred spirits in the ministry

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11 Continue reading

“These words of Mine..”

I don’t read too many religious or spiritual books; even those that claim to be Christian.
I’ll tell you why.
To me God’s word is truth; the whole truth; the entire truth we need to know when it comes to what God wants us to know about a relationship with Him. Continue reading

40 Year Forgiveness

…and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. Matt 6:12
I have debated on this particular Morning Thought; just how to word it. I come to the conclusion that transparency will be my method.
When I was very, very young my mother would babysit for a couple that had much older children; a boy and a girl. Continue reading

Planting a seed – Part 4

Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest. Ps 126:5-6
To wrap this up, let me say that if you are a Christian then you are to be planting a Godly seed of faith into the lives of those that need Jesus as Savior. Continue reading

Plant a seed – Part 3

It’s more important than your personal finances or family prosperity.
What is it?
It’s planting a seed of faith into the life of another person by sharing the Gospel message with them; by living that message before others every day.
Every day you and I are planting some kind of seed in the life of those around us. Continue reading

Planting a seed – Part 2

Last Saturday the mail arrived with 2 envelopes addressed to the church.
In one was a check for $100; the other had six $1 bills and the signatures of 8 people.
I was curious about that until I was told it’s “seed” money – it is sown in faith to produce a hundredfold or a hundred times more based on Mark 4:20 Continue reading

Planting a seed – Part 1

Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:2-4
This verse has taken on new meaning over the past week. Continue reading
