  • Hospitality

    You are instructed in Romans 12:13 to be “given to hospitality.”  That implies that you should be known as a hospitable person.  What is hospitality?  It literally means to have a love of strangers.  Hebrews 13:2 “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”  In other words, don’t […]

  • Bless and Do Not Curse

    When we spend time around fellow Christians, we should be treating each other with Christian love.  We should be kind, courteous, considerate and caring for one another.  However, when we are around people of the world, they can be rude, selfish, boastful, inconsiderate and even hateful; they may cut in front of you, hurt you, […]

  • Pleasing God

    Jesus always worked to please His Father.  John 8:29 “And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.”  When He was on the mountain of transfiguration, Matthew 17:5b “a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of […]

  • Subject To The Government

    As a Christian, you are a member of the Kingdom of Heaven.  There are righteous rules and commands that you follow.  The Kingdom is ruled by our Holy God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  They are righteous, loving, merciful and all wise and they rule with justice.  Since you live in the world, you are […]

  • The Word In You

    The Bible is an amazing resource.  We understand that it is the word of God.  The Bible tells us about God and His characteristics, about His mighty works, about His dealing with mankind, about His righteousness and holiness, about His love for mankind and His plan of salvation, about His plan for what will happen […]

  • Deny Yourself

    Jesus tells us what is required to be His disciple. Matthew 16:24-25 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake […]

  • Worry

    Are you sometimes a worrier?  Maybe you can’t sleep because of the problems you are thinking about.  Maybe you have stomach problems or headaches or pains in your chest because you are stressed by your problems.  Maybe you don’t know how you are going to pay all your bills.  Maybe you worry about your children, […]

  • Saved

    Matthew 8:23-27 “Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, ‘Lord, save us! We are perishing!’ But He said to […]

  • The Holy Spirit Within

    As Christians, we are given the Spirit of God to live within us.  Romans 8:9 “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.”  I believe that all true Christians […]

  • Confessing Sin

    God, through Samuel, commanded King Saul to destroy the Amalekite people. 1 Samuel 15:3; 13-15; 19-23 “Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.” Saul attacked the Amalekites and destroyed […]
