Take One Day at a Time…

Take one day at a time.Consider what God has done: Who can straighten  what he has made crooked? When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future. Ecclesiastes 7:13-14

Since no one knows the future, who can tell someone else what is to come? As no one has power over the wind to contain it, so no one has power over the

LORD spoke out of the storm

The first part of the book of Job we find God talking to Satan. God shows Satan there is no one like Job who is blameless and upright. So, God gives Satan permission to test Job without killing him. Satan then, takes from Job all his wealth from camels, donkeys, oxen, servants, and children. In all these things Job did not sin. Eventually the Lord allows Satan to touch the skin of Job; with painful sores from the top of

I currently lead a small group of men and women every Saturday night at 8 pm from my home. In my personal and observational experience, everyone places bias expectations on God’s Word when studied.  As an early Christian it may be for answers and guidance. As a Christian with a few miles under our belt it may be to find

Eyes That See…

Eyes that seeHe (God) said, “Go and tell this people: “‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’ Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed (saved).” Isaiah 6:9-10

Jesus said,  For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with

Does your church teach this?

As I was reading an article the other day, I came across the teachings of a particular church. Here is what the author said:

My only view of life outside (my church) was that it was an orgy of sin. That absolutely everyone was bound for eternal damnation … The bottom line is that they think they, and only they, are God’s servants. God put them on this Earth to spread the Gospel … I thought I was one of the few people

OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN

PART 1: “OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME” (Matthew 6:9)

We come to the first part of Christ’s instruction to His disciples and audience about prayer.  Let us review little bit about the previous text to get the context to lead us on our study.  In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus Christ is teaching his disciples and many people about wrong and right motives of giving, fasting, prayer, etc.  The common denominator among these three subjects is doing the

God is Our Strength…

God is our strengthPaul writes, Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. 

Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three

Successful as a christian

What is being successful? How can we be successful? Isn’t that what all of us want? Don’t we all want to be happy and satisfied with what we reached in our lives? Yes we do! We want to be successful, happy and satisfied. But what does God say at this particular matter?

In Proverbs 16:3 the Bible says, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” So basically you are saying we can do anything praise God for

Our Time on Earth…

Our Time on EarthA person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment? To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, Ecclesiastes 2:24-26a

Wisdom makes one wise person more powerful than ten rulers in a city. Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what

Victory in Christ Jesus

Victory in Christ JesusSee what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him (Jesus)Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see
