Looking into a Mirror

You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness.(James 1:19-20)James warns us we should be careful of how we talk to others or about others. God expects us to be good listeners; not so much great speakers. I tease people sometimes that God gave us two ears and one mouth so we would listen twice as much as we speak.John answered, “Master, we sa...

God is Able

Often we do not comprehend the power of God or recognize his workings. His plan for mankind was foreordained even before the foundation of the world. (Eph.1) God is fully capable of carrying out his plan and uses man as a tool to accomplish his purpose. Phil. 2:13 tells us, “For it is God that works in you, both to will and to do his good pleasure.” God sent forth the gospel to the whole world in one generation, by using his saints for the task. (Mark 16:20) As we meditate on what...

Doorway into Thanks

Preachers, this commandment is for you

And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.

I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. Mal 2:1-2 KJVFor the priests lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger ...

How much do you trust God?

The great evangelical pastor A. W. Tozer shares this insight: “Most of us go through life praying a little, planning a little, jockeying for position, hoping but never being quite certain of anything, and always secretly afraid that we will miss the way. This is a tragic waste of truth and never gives rest to the heart. There is a better way. It is to repudiate our own wisdom and take instead the infinite wisdom of God. Our insistence upon seeing ahead is natural enough, but it is a rea...

False Teachers

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (I John 4:1) Even as John penned this epistle many centuries ago, there were already false teachers in the world, leading the people astray with their worldly teachings. The hearers, being worldly in their thoughts, gladly heard and followed these false prophets. (I John 4:5)

Change

Change is inevitable. It is the only constant. Each day moves us forward through the seasons – from the cold of winter to springtime’s flowers – to summer’s play and autumn’s leaves. The cycle then repeats itself, but it is never quite the same.Change for young people has energy. IP3G is ancient, iP5 is in use, and soon midnight camping at retailers will begin for those wishing to be the first to purchase iP6, the latest of technological miracles. Chan...

The enemies attack

Matthew 4:1-11When the devil attacks you He is not fighting you over your old man because your old man is not dangerous to him. He is fighting you over your new man. Any attack from the enemy is a clue that your enemy is convinced that you can achieve your destiny. Hell is sending you a signal that it doesn’t doubt what God has for you. Now what we need to understand is that an attack from the enemy is at the beginning of a new season in life that God is ready to mov...
