Watching Your Thoughts But that didn’t bother her. She turned to even greater prostitution, remembering her youth when she was a prostitute in Egypt.

Thanking God for His Goodness The scene opens with 70 (maybe 72) disciples from Jesus who have come back from a trip. They have witnessed God work tremendous miracles in their journey. They said that they say demons submit to the power of Jesus. They had gone out and preached that the cities should repent and follow God (Mark 6:10-13). So in the name of Jesus, they saw God work tremendous miracles and powerful events. People were healed from sickness… Read more

Looking Forward Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV) We have come to a new year – 2006. I don’t know about you, but for me, a new year is a time in which I think about making… Read more

What Should We Do for Christmas? On Christmas Eve, we may all come together and prepare for the “Big Day”. The “Big Day” of course is Christmas, a holiday we have been preparing for since October. We know that on Christmas, we go to church, we visit family, we share a big meal, and we exchange gifts. This is what all of our busyness is all about. We are intent on “getting everything done” by Christmas. We are going to… Read more

Life of Grace and Life of Islam More Differences between Christianity and Islam (Galatians 4:21-5:1) Some of you would like to be under the rule of the Law of Moses.

Is He Your King? Is He Your King? ““You are a king then?” Pilate asked. “You say that I’m a king,” Jesus replied. “I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.” “What is truth?” said Pilate. After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again and told them, “I find no grounds for charging Him.” (John… Read more

Bring People Out of the Darkness “Then Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”” (John 8:12, HCSB) We have two ways of relating with people.

  Keeping Sheep ““I am the good shepherd. I know My own sheep, and they know Me,” (John 10:14, HCSB) My family and I keep cows on our ranch in Missouri.

The reason for this is because many times, when a rancher handles hundreds of cows, a couple of cows will get lost. Or perhaps… Read more
