Only one way leads to Heaven

We all have ways of doing things. As human beings, created in the image of God and given the ability to make choices, sometimes we disagree. God gives us this license when it comes to earthly things.

Remember to stay focused on Jesus

It is very easy during this time of the year to lose focus on what is important. With the pressure of society, family and friends, sometimes we find ourselves caught in a whirlwind of wants, requests and desires that blur the vision that was so clearly mapped out for us just a few months earlier.

Who is it you're giving thanks to?

At this time of year, we hear a lot about the things we should be thankful for, such as family, good health, financial resources and the things we need that they buy. It is important to give thanks for the blessings of life that we receive. But there is another question that needs to be answered: Who is the recipient of our thanks?

Live by the message from Heaven

The God of creation did not just create man and leave him to his own devices. God speaks to man so man can know what God desires of him. The way God speaks to man has changed thorough the centuries of time.

Do you listen to what God says?

Many years ago, my wife and I moved away to New Orleans to go to school. We were both in our early 20s, having been married only a year and a half. We were scared and excited, all at the same time. I imagine that our parents (both sets) were more frightened than excited.

Always love thy neighbor as thyself

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" (Matt. 22:36-40).

What happened to sin

It is really interesting that the media's No. 1 story the other day was about Prince William and Katie Middleton's engagement. You couldn't find an outlet that wasn't covering this story, as if it was so important.

Take time to give thanks

We are now entering the holiday season, which traditionally kicks off when we celebrate Thanksgiving. I feel we should remind ourselves of the importance of this time of giving thanks. Living in the United States is one of the most blessed opportunities anyone can experience. As we observe and enjoy the benefits of this great nation, we can only say thanks to the one who provides us with such bountiful blessings.

Do you want to follow God or follow idols?

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Against such, there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another" (Galatians 5:13-25).

We must be forgiving servants in obeying God

Mankind needs to thank God for the fact that Jesus came to Earth, died at Calvary and rose again the third day. Without the blood of Christ, no man could be saved from sin. The debt of sin is too great for man to repay, but Christ paid the debt for all men.
