Wake Up

And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us push aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.…

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

The Danger of Micromanaging Your Life

March 8, 2020 |

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. (Proverbs 16:9)  Have you ever gone on a trip with a group of your friends or family members? In my experience with those types of trips, there’s always one person in the group who has to micromanage every detail of the trip. This person’s…

Spiritual Sobriety

March 7, 2020 |

Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry…You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.

Do You Have Joy?

March 4, 2020 |

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. (Psalm 100:1-2)  There are times when I see people come to church on Sunday morning almost as if they are going to a funeral service. They are like that mother who constantly reprimands and scolds…

Counterfeit Joy

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)  Recently, I observed two men who had the same exact watch. As they compared their time pieces, one stated he paid $500…

Clothe Yourself with the Lord Jesus

March 2, 2020 |

Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. (Romans 13:14)  I once heard it said that when you become a follower of Jesus, you get a wardrobe change. You get rid of all your clothes that no longer fit you spiritually, and…

Let It Go

March 1, 2020 |

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit…
