I Am A Sinner
Luke 18:11-13 (KJB) The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me ...

Worry Does Not Assist Us in Standing Spiritually Tall
Matthew 6:27 (KJB) Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
The size and strength of our human stature is limited by our natural abilities and growth rate. There is no way a person can stretch himself into gaining or losing a few inches on his height. He can, however, change the size of his waist and weight through changes in his diet.
A spiritual stance cannot ... Continue Reading →

Faith Always Generates Works
James 2:14 (KJB) What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
Faith is both a simple as well as a complex spiritual thing. It is easy to place faith in the things of God for they are readily apparent and beautifully evidenced in the intimate details painted within the natural framework of nature’s landscape.
Where it gets more spiritually complicated is where the “rubber ... Continue Reading →

Tongue Tied Truth
Romans 11:6 (KJB) And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
The words of this seemingly “tongue tied” scripture verse might make your head spin! However, unraveling this truth contained in scripture reveals the greatness and eternal nature of God’s amazing grace.
God’s grace is free (Ephesians 8-10).
God’s grace is available ... Continue Reading →
God’s Presence moves from Our Hearts to Our Hands We, who are brothers and sisters in Christ, are the visible hands of God in this world. He has entrusted each of us with a lifetime “spiritual vocation” or job. This is not a suggestion or mere idea but a commandment for the child of God to invest his or her life sowing seeds of His gospel message. A divinely designated spiritual career is much more important than any other occupation ... Continue Reading →
