Grace is getting something we don't deserve. We accepted Jesus as Savior because God's grace drew us to Him. His grace pardoned our sins, cleansed our hearts, and filled us with His Spirit. We're now part of God's Kingdom where there's no sin or sickness, and though we won't experience the fullness of His grace … Continue reading Grace is All We Need

Don’t Suffer Alone
Many Christians suffer through their problems alone. God is ready to help, but they won't ask Him because they either don't want to "bother" Him or assume He won't help. We must study the Bible to know God and fill up with His knowledge and wisdom. We are His children, and when problems come (big … Continue reading Don’t Suffer Alone
We Are NOT Alone!

If You Need Something…Ask
The Bible is our instruction book for life, but we need to study it AND apply it to be productive Christians. The more we learn, the closer to God we get, but as with any relationship, it goes two ways! Jesus talks to us through His word, and we speak to Him through prayer. We … Continue reading If You Need Something…Ask
Why Our Faith Doesn’t Work
We often hear Christians say, "Have faith." But faith in who? In what? Many brag about their faith, quote selected Scriptures, and repeat the same prayer—but nothing happens. Initially, God gave us the faith to believe that He is God and to realize that we are sinners and need to accept Jesus as our Savior, … Continue reading Why Our Faith Doesn’t Work
Keep the Oil in My Lamp
If you were lost at night in a forest without a light, you wouldn't see the path because of the darkness. Likewise, even as Christians, we'll continue to stumble in the darkness unless we keep our lamps filled with oil! The Bible IS that oil! It fills our lamps and allows the Light to shine … Continue reading Keep the Oil in My Lamp
How to Stand in Faith

And the global disasters are … Continue reading Searching for a Happy Heart
Lies and Deceit
The devil runs this world, and lies and deception are his greatest tools. He is so cunning that he can trick a Christian easily through the lust of the flesh if the person doesn’t study the Scriptures to know God’s will, and doesn't walk in the love and the knowledge and the wisdom God. Lies … Continue reading Lies and Deceit

Don’t Get Caught in the Doorway

But this is really one doorway that you don’t want to get stuck in, especially if the door closes when you're not looking. It’s like standing … Continue reading Don’t Get Caught in the Doorway
Are You a Real Christian or a Wannebee?
There are many Christians who really don’t know if they’re saved or not. One of the biggest reasons for this is that they don’t study the Bible and have no idea who God really is or who Jesus is. They don’t understand grace and much of their limited knowledge of Him is lost in the … Continue reading Are You a Real Christian or a Wannebee?
Let Faith Arise!
Faith is not a virtue that we are born with or that we just inherit one day. It is something that we have to seek out and work at to keep. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we enter God’s world, and the hopes and dreams that it holds are endless. They … Continue reading Let Faith Arise!
