THE THIEF AND THE MONEY

                        The Pastor spoke about the day Mary took an expensive bottle of perfume and anointed the feet of Jesus. While he read from the Bible these verses really caught my attention, “But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, said ‘Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred … More THE THIEF AND THE MONEY

Learning Obedience

When we think about the earthly  life of Jesus we usually do not consider He needed to learn obedience because He was sinless, but Hebrews 5:8 says of our Lord, “Though He was a son, He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.” Why would one who is  sinless need to learn obedience?

Father Forgive

When Jesus was having the worst day of his life, He did not say woe is Me or feel sorry for Himself, but He said in Luke 23:34, “Father forgive them they know not what they do.” He could say this because if they really knew the ramifications of the things they do, they probably … More Father Forgive

God’s Will

Jesus was in God’s will, when He was led into the wilderness. Jesus was in God’s will, when He was tempted by the Devil. Jesus was in God’s will, when He picked Judas to be His disciple.

For instance, I have not noticed before in Luke 10:25-26, Jesus giving us yet another example of witnessing. “And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, ‘Teacher, what … More Hidden Nugget

Expect It

When you least expect it, expect it. As we become more familiar with the schemes of the devil we might get the attitude, “I got this!” We must not take a break but always be on the alert, watchful, because even though he is leaving you alone at this moment, he will be back. After … More Expect It

Anger Or Zeal?

I once had written correspondence with a person who had anger issues. He was trying hard to conquer his anger but could not get past the scriptures where Jesus overturned the money tables. He kept arguing that Jesus displayed anger, therefore it is acceptable. One thing he did not understand was the culture surrounding this … More Anger Or Zeal?

Commit

In this new year you would do good to reaffirm your commitment to Jesus and express your continued love for Him, much like when wedding vows are renewed. When a commitment is made to your spouse you are affirming that you give up all others for a life with them. Commitment to Jesus is saying … More Commit
