The Wonder of God’s Love

Romans 5:8 “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Isn’t it amazing that the God over all creation would look down on people that disobey Him and say, “Those are my people…I am willing to send my Son to die for them.”  Yet, that is exactly what God has done for you and for me. I have known Jesus as my Lord and Savior for as long as I can remember.  My mother led me to Christ when I was 5 years old which was my earliest memory as a child.  But the … [Read more...]

The Importance Of Showing Love To Others In The Life Of A Christian

1Thessalonians 3:12 “And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you.” Recently I was reading from 1st Thessalonians and I came across this verse that really made me stop and think.  It says, “may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you.(1Th. 3:12).”  Paul’s words almost seem like a prayer of commitment and dedication.  Often times we read a passage of Scripture or sing a praise song where we … [Read more...]

How To Overcome Temptation

James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” There is always a way out.  Sometimes it may feel like we have no way out of situations but God never allows us to be boxed in.  He always provides a way to resist temptations that Satan puts in our path.  You may sometimes feel that a temptation is too overpowering for you to bear, but that’s a lie from Satan. God will not permit any temptation that you could not overcome. However, you must do your par … [Read more...]

Are You a Disciple of Jesus?

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God  The topic of discipleship and building relationships is one that is always close to my heart.  Making disciples was very important to Jesus as was evidenced by His example during His earthly ministry.  Jesus poured His life into 12 ordinary men and showed them what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  One of my favorite books on discipleship is “The Cost of Discipleship” which is written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  I had read th … [Read more...]
