Empowered to Break Free: Freedom from Sin through Christ
by Delman Coates on August 26th, 2023
“For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.” - Romans 6:14 One of the most liberating truths we can embrace as believers is that God has given us the power to be set free from sin. Through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, we have been redeemed from the bondage of sin and empowered to live in freedom. Sin, with its deceptive allure, can often make ...
Waiting on YOU
by Delman Coates on March 28th, 2023
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” - 2 Peter 3:9 Yesterday, we discussed how God is never too slow. He is still working on your situation. However, sometimes we are the reason for the delay in our change of circumstances. 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slow t...

“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” - 1 John 4:4 What's the risk? Before making decisions, we often like to consider this question. Most people do not like taking risks if there is a chance they could lose something. Whether it is their time, their money, or something else, people just don’t like to risk anything...
Greater Than Us
by Delman Coates on January 19th, 2023
“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” - 1 John 4:4 You have a story to tell. It does not matter who you are, where you come from, or what experiences you have gone through. All of us have a story to tell. And as believers, that story is our testimony. It is the story God wants us to share with others in order to im...

“‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’” - Isaiah 55:8-9As we continue to look at the story of Abram in Genesis 15, we are fixated on a man who is waiting on God to deliver His promise. Perhaps you can relate? Maybe God has given y...

“And we know that in all things God works for the god of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28We have spent the last few days talking about the help that is on its way. No matter where you find yourself in life, through the toughest of times and hardest of circumstances, if you are a believer, you can rejoice; help is on the way. This is a promise God gi...

But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” - 1 Corinthians 10:13If you have followed our devotions the last few days, you are likely very encouraged!

“You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” - Ephesians 4:22-24If you want to turn your weaknesses, your Achilles heel, or the thorn in your side into a strength, you must put...
Beat Off The Bugs

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” - John 1:5 As believers, you and I should be under the influence of the Spirit so that we can be a light in dark spaces. I remember driving up to my home one night and noticing one of the lights in the front of my home was not working. The next evening, remembering to replace it, I went out to change the light. To my asto...

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5) I learned a lot about sports from my father. He was my baseball coach when I was younger. It afforded me an opportunity to be tutored and trained in the game by the man who was my first role model and teacher in life. My father was not just my coach in baseball; he was, and is, an avid sports fan. He...

But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. – Isaiah 64:8 As a recent collector of art, I have come across the work of an artist by the name of Purvis Young. Young is a self-taught, urban impressionist from Miami’s Overtown neighborhood whose work is often a blend of collage and painting. He utilizes discarded objects, oftentimes...
