Wise people speak sparsely.

He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. (Proverbs 17:27 KJV)

The spirit and demeanor in which things are done is of the utmost importance.  A person can have a lot of things to say but say little or nothing that is useful in uplifting and forwarding the work of God.  Others use words sparingly with an attitude of meekness and lowliness that exhibit spiritual qualities mirrored ...

Do you keep the circle of blessing turning towards others?

I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me. I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. (Acts 20:33-35 KJV)

Paul ...

God’s light shines brightly through darkness and evil.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 KJV)

No man or spiritual force will ever surpass or snuff out the supernatural power of God, or stick closer to us through any storms of life.  God’s immense love for mankind, despite our sin nature, sent His only Son to die upon the cross for the entire sin debt of all ...

There is joy in Heaven for every lost sinner quickened spiritually alive.

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. (Luke 15:7 KJV)

On this day of Thanksgiving we give thanks to unto God; first and foremost, for His great mercy and grace of which none of us naturally deserve.  If we got what we deserved all mankind would be ...

What do you count as dung in light of Christ?

But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, ...

Who do you exalt in your life?

The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted. (Psalms 18:46 KJV)

“The Lord liveth…” not the Lord lived or will live but He liveth.  This scripture verse emphatically states the present tense.  This was the truth in the time this verse was written by David and is truth for today as well.  God was alive at the beginning of time and will live forever ...

Do you have spiritual momentum?

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV)

Paul readily admits he has not yet arrived.  He sees himself clearly as a man who committed great sin which was in enmity to the things ...

Do you heed godly wisdom?

I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. (Proverbs 4:11-12 KJV)

We often like to use excuses such as “I didn’t know…. Or I do not know how…” but God clearly emphasizes in this scripture verse that he has taught us in the way of wisdom.  He freely gives mankind ...

Twenty One Interesting Questions

Twenty One Interesting Questions From John Wesley:

Here is one set of nearly two dozen questions similar to what John Wesley gave to members of his discipleship groups more than 200 years ago.

The questions have their origin in the spiritual accountability group started by Wesley when he was a student at Oxford — a group that detractors called “The Holy Club.”

  1. Am I consciously or unconsciously creating the impression that I am better than I really am? In other words, am I a hypocrite?
  2. Do ...

Seek Ye The Lord


The devil has little to fear prowling around seeking individuals he can overwhelm, confound, and bury in doubt and fear. Many are living a rushed existence, struggling to provide for their family, living defeated lives, lacking hope, seeking love, consumed with anger, worrying about the state of our nation, and drowning in heaps of stress.

Prayerless churches, prayerless bible studies, prayerless homes, and prayerless schools. The devil is having a heyday in our prayerless and powerless nation. We have ...
