  • Forgive Others

    Have you ever had trouble forgiving someone?  I have.  When I begin to think back on the harm I experience by their actions or hurtful words, the feelings of resentment can come flooding back.  The hurt may be because of the physical or emotional harm that was received.  It could be the lies that they […]

  • Bless The Lord, O My Soul

    David wrote Psalm 103; it is truly a most beautiful psalm.  It reminds us of the wonderful God that we have.  I wish to encourage you with this psalm. Verse 1: “Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name.” David here calls upon his soul and all […]

  • God’s Grace

    It is impossible to save ourselves.  Without God’s grace, none of us are saved.  Ephesians 2:4-5 “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).”  You should worship […]

  • Patient In Trials

    Every one of us faces trials and tribulations.  That is part of life and part of being a Christian.  The trials may be physical, such as financial problems or health issues.  They may be relationship trials in dealing with difficult people.  They may be spiritual trials such as the consequences of sin or the falling […]

  • Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

    Jesus was nearing the end of His earthly ministry.  Matthew 20:17-19 “Now Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, ‘Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will […]

  • A Life To The Praise And Glory Of God

    The apostle Paul prayed the following prayer for those at Philippi.  Philippians 1:9-11 “And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled […]

  • Ministering to the Saints

    Every one of us has received help from other people.  You have received help from your parents, your instructors, your friends and perhaps many other people.  You have even received help from God and Christ.   Romans 5:6-8 “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for […]

  • Fear of Death

    When you were young, it probably seemed like you would live forever.  People rarely think about dying when they are young and healthy.  But when you grow older or have a serious disease such as cancer, you realize that life is short.  When a friend or loved one passes, you are reminded that you also […]

  • Worthy Conduct

    Sometimes we see people in positions of authority that do things that are inappropriate for the positions that they hold.  Maybe it is a government official that accepts bribes or spends public funds for his own benefit.  Maybe it is a police officer who violates the law.  Maybe it is a teacher that has an […]

  • Pursue Peace

    Jesus said in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”  As a child of God, you should be a peacemaker.  That means that you seek to live at peace with others and work to resolve conflicts between your neighbors, family members, and fellow Christians.  The opposite of a […]
