Teachable Moments

2 Timothy 2:22 (KJB)   Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Timothy, Paul’s friend and brother in Christ was a young respectable man.  The Bible tells us his mother Lois and his grandma Eunice (2 Timothy 1:5) raised Timothy up in great faith in God.

Paul was using a “teachable moment” with Timothy for highlighting the importance of fleeing wicked lusts which naturally rage ...

Be Still

Psalm 46:10 (KJB)   Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Being quiet and patient in times of trials and troubles are not traits that come naturally for mankind.  It takes a work of God in the heart to give a person a soft and still spirit.  Especially to find a quiet peace in the heart of man struggling during frustrating circumstances at work ...

Ruined Relationships

April 14th, 2017

Ruined Relationships

Micah 7:6 (KJB)   For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.

Family values, tradition, and loyalty are often found to be weak and broken.  Many injured relationships are not able to stand the test of time and circumstances found at work in this world.

A Peaceful Countenance

A Peaceful Countenance

Matthew 5:9 (KJB)   Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Peace and blessings go hand in hand with having possession of a personal relationship with God.

Without God mankind, will not find lasting peace or blessings.  Or will not desire for entertaining peace with others in this world.  Not only are children of God eternally blessed but they have an internal desire for peace.

It is fitting that the man and woman of ...

October 27th, 2016

Does Your Life Have These Perpetual and Pleasing Ingredients?

Hebrews 12:14 (KJB)   Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

These two ingredients, peace and holiness, are often found to be absent, or at least greatly diminished in the lives of many professing Christians today.

Peace and holiness, or having “spiritual zest,” is a crucial element in living a new spiritual life.  These spiritual components come only through possessing a personal relationship with God.  ...

Paul Was Spiritually at Ease

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. (2 Corinthians 4:8-10 KJV)

Trouble looms all around us.  It is easy to lose hope shifting our view to peer intently upon dark storm clouds ...

Armed with His Sword

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. (Matthew 10:34 KJV)

God did not send Jesus Christ to visit this world and travel around site seeing through many beautiful areas found in this world.

Jesus Christ did not come to this world for the purpose of taking a vacation.

God sent His Son with ...

R.I.P. or Rest in Peace is a Common Expression


Romans 8:35-39 (KJB)   Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, ...

June 19th, 2016

Genuine Joy, Peace, and Hope Only Come from God

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15:13 KJV)

Hope and faith bundled with joy are essential in living Christ-like.  Being down in the dumps or “out of sorts” is not a place for professing Christians to dwell.  Gloominess should be only a temporary situation, or short-lived spiritual season in ...

Take Up Your Cross December 5th 2015

December 5th 2015

Do you have a down payment of eternal peace and contentment while sojourning in this world?

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. (Romans 8:6-7 KJV)

To be carnally minded is to focus upon earthly things in this life rather than upon the eternal things of God.  ...
