Save yourself by stop living in denial

Everyone has equal access to God

Before the Memorial Day observance the other day at the local city park, some locals were talking about rain, since that day's forecast had called for it. Someone jokingly stated that it was part of my responsibility to make sure that it waited to come until the event was finished since I had the connection with God, who controls the weather.

Enjoy the now as much as the future

Do you ever approach an event both excited that it is coming but also with a sense of dread? You can't wait for it to begin, but then you definitely are ready when it is over?

Become truly free with law of God

"Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded, but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? Then is the offence of the cross ceased. I would they were even cut off which trouble you. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use ...

Thoughts, behavior can be conquered

Have you ever asked yourself, "Who would I like to become?" What people or events in life have hindered your reaching that goal? To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.

God can help you change for the better

Listen to right one for eternal life

Many still believe the lie of Satan today; they fail to see that sin separates man from God (Isaiah 59:1-2). They fail to understand that when they give in to their desires to do wrong things, they - not God - are causing the problem.

Don't have a disappointing destination

Sunday afternoon, I was watching a football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. I'm not a fan of either team; the only reason I was watching it was that it was the playoffs.

Use your mind to honor God

I like books. I dearly love to read. When I was a young boy my mom took me to the local library every week. I checked out all kinds of books - mystery, sports, biography and others.

Plow-burning faith can change the world

"So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with 12 yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. 'Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,' he said, 'and then I will come with you.' 'Go back,' Elijah replied. 'What have I done to you?' So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and ...
