Well Done

I hear it said quite often what people want to hear when standing before the throne is, “Well done My good and faithful servant.” This statement comes from the parable Jesus told of the talents in Matthew 25. The servants were told this after being praised for the choices they made. It is the same … More Well Done

God’s Compassion

I was driving behind a bus the other day and on the back was a slogan which said, “Life has a restart button.” I did not catch what company this was because I immediately thought of  Lamentations 3:22-23, “For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness.” I love the … More God’s Compassion

Daddy issues

We read in the Bible that God is a loving Father, Psalm 103:13 says, “Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.” But not everyone has had the greatest example of a loving father, which can hinder our relationship with God. Much like we are … More Daddy issues

Greater Scale

One of the more popular questions non-believers ask is, “Will God really send to hell people who have never heard about Jesus? What about the island never discovered, or the mentally disabled or the child?” We must always balance the character of God with the word of God. He is a loving God who judges … More Greater Scale

When I posted Abe’s Lesson on Febrary 15,2016, I stated that I know the teaching of today that it is a picture of God providing Jesus as a sacrifice for us. I should have also added of Abrahams faith being tested. I was in no way stating that this was not true, in fact I … More Abe’s Lesson 2

I know the commonly taught theory, the action is a picture of God providing Jesus … More Abe’s Lesson

Focus

Isn’t it annoying when you are trying to have a conversation with someone and they are looking at their phone? I noticed lately I am doing something similar to God. When I am singing worship songs I have noticed that I’m singing the words but at the same time I’m usually thinking about something else. … More Focus

Encouragement

“Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.” Like 22:43 During this time, Jesus was in agony over the decision to follow God’s will for his life. He asked his friends to pray for Him but they did not and fell asleep, furthering His anguish. Mark 14:37, “Then He came and found them … More Encouragement

Many Ways

Every year, in my last Church, I would have a valentine’s luncheon for the ladies of the church. The topic in which I would speak, was about God’s love. Each year I would pray that someone would be helped by my lesson, but I had not heard that any had. After the last one, later that … More Many Ways
