When we go through struggles and bad times in life, we are anything but joyful. Many of us become overwhelmed with stress and hardship when we endure those unbearable trials.

The concept of Christianity is spreading across the globe. While a few of those who hear the message will try to live Godly lives, most of them will never pursue a relationship with Jesus. Others will focus on the blessings and make it their purpose in life to claim them all. The message is changing to … Continue reading The Essence of our Hope
It seems, at times, that the hardest thing for some believers to admit in this world is that they are Christians. We tend to label ourselves by our career or our social status, just as we label others by their skin color, culture, or profession. Too often, we eliminate our “Christian” identity on our social … Continue reading Identity Crisis
Throughout life, we receive many different kinds of gifts. Some are very useful, others are novelty and interesting, and some meet our current needs.

God tells us to love everyone regardless of culture, status or lifestyle because His Spirit lives in us and God loves everyone—so we need to love everyone, as well.

There is a universal religion spreading across the globe that denies the Holiness of God so it can pursue a more accepted concept of salvation.

Many people claim to be Christians but few ever talk about their faith. They will go to church, pay tithes and even attend social events with other Christians, but outside of the church building, they keep their Christianity to themselves. We are children of God and Jesus is our Savior, and we should not care … Continue reading I Am NOT Ashamed!
It’s an old saying that's been used to cover many diverse situations, but it’s a fact that can't be refuted: we canNOT buy love. We can impress, persuade, convince, influence, deceive, flatter, fake, assume, and sell the concept of love, but no one can buy the heart's unconditional commitment. Only ONE person in the world's history has ever truly loved … Continue reading You Can’t Buy Love
Many Christians suffer from some kind of disability that keeps them in a constant state of discomfort, ill-appearance, and/or pain. It’s not easy to get out and be a blessing to others when we can’t see beyond the entrapment of our own infirmity. But if we love God, we need to look beyond our disability and see His love for … Continue reading Looking Beyond a Disability
Many Christians accept Jesus as their Savior, but neglect to make Him their Lord. The reason there are so many doctrines is that they don't obey God, but we don't have a choice; we must obey Him. Why? Because God said so! Most believers refer to Jesus as “Lord”, but do they really know what … Continue reading Because God Said So!
Modern-day “Christianity” says there are several ways to get to Heaven and that we must each find which one is best for us. Universal religion says that we are all automatically saved so we can just live in sin and enjoy life. However, the Bible says there is only ONE way to get to … Continue reading Letting Ignorance Rule
This New Age Society is bold and aggressive because people don't want to be ruled by the old laws (of God) anymore. Now they are free to enjoy a life of sin and not be condemned for their choice of idolatry and immorality. Perhaps the greatest tragedy in this legalized Godless society, though, is … Continue reading Itching Ears
Never before in our lifetime has the issue of “hate” been as globally relevant as it is today. It seems that as Christians, whatever we say in defense of God’s law or His sovereignty is interpreted as “hate”. Sadly, many Christians have chosen to stay quiet because of their fear of spreading hate. The world is … Continue reading Spreading Hate
There is a big difference between Joy and Happiness, and too often we confuse them. Happiness is a temporal state of the mind; joy is a permanent condition of the heart. Happiness is the result of our emotions being satisfied; joy is the everlasting imprint on our heart that gives us strength. We may go … Continue reading Joy Comes in the Morning
People across the globe are proclaiming that God is love and that there is no hell because a loving God would never send His children there.

The Old Testament believers looked for the Messiah to come and save them from their sins. They sacrificed animals at the altar in reference to the ultimate sacrifice: Christ Jesus. The shed blood of the animals didn’t take away their sins and they knew that. Their focus was on Messiah who would come and be … Continue reading Formula for Salvation
Many people don’t surrender their lives to Jesus because they don’t have any idea who He really is. They’ve heard of His name, but it doesn’t mean anything to them and so they chalk Him up as a religious figure that they don’t care about. They don’t realize that they are sinners in need of … Continue reading Friend or Foe?
Life is changing, and if you are old enough to look back 30 or 40 years, you can see the dubious transformation of people’s attitudes and values just by observing how they live. We were once a God-fearing nation; now we're watching a changing of the gods. All lives used to matter when God was present … Continue reading Changing of the Gods
Many people enjoy giving gifts or helping others in need. Some give large, notable amounts of funds while others give small and discreet gifts.

As believers, our giving must be from … Continue reading What IS My Motive?
The world is watching us with beady eyes. It might even know our walk with God better than we do, especially if we don’t practice what we preach. It can spot hypocrisy a mile away and knows the ones who are true from those who just want to sit on the fence and reap the … Continue reading The Sponge
As we look around, it’s evident that the world system is falling apart, and it’s hard to see if God has any control over things anymore. Laws are changed to benefit the rich and sinful and to destroy the poor and innocent. Hatred has become a serious global issue and is inflicting death and destruction … Continue reading God’s Calling…it’s for YOU!
People often like to put “things” off until tomorrow. As far as time goes on this earth, tomorrow never comes, so their thinking is in line with this world’s clock. Yet, what many don’t realize is that time is a measure of earth, not of eternity, and it's running out. The tomorrow that lies ahead for those … Continue reading Don’t be Fooled: Tomorrow Will Come!
People tend to judge their own sin according to their own ideas. Some feel that their sin is too great so they won’t ask God to forgive them because they don’t believe that He can or will. Others assume that they are good because they haven’t done anything bad that they’re aware of; they go to … Continue reading Jesus is Able!
Many people pray and expect to hear an audible voice or see a flash of light or something in the miraculous that says God is there and He's listening. Unfortunately, though, God does speak but they are missing His voice because they are not looking for Him where He can be found. As believers, we know where … Continue reading Where are You, God?
As we reach the various ages in life, we’re compelled to look back and see what we’ve accomplished according to the milestones of today’s world.
