UNCONDITIONAL LOVE…

We live in a world of adversity, misrepresentation and total belligerence. The heart of man has been lied to, cheated on and otherwise treated with hatred and disrespect. We are given the command to be courteous and kind; or, as the Bible puts it, to “love one another” (John 15:12). All around us we see a world that is crying out, not for the wealth and power as one might expect; but, for love. Truly, the one thing that is missing, the one answer or solution to every problem or difficulty, is the quality of universal, unrestricted love. Love joins [Read More…]

LIFE IS MORE…

Life is about more than just making choices, it’s about where those choices are taking you and who those choices tend to prefer.  Will they lead you to greener pastures, or will they make your life one of bitterness and remorse? The freedom to choose can be considered a blessing,  but it can also become a curse.  Left alone you will most often do what is right, but when the tempter is parked at your door, will you choose to follow him instead of doing what is righteous and good? God has given you the ability to know right from [Read More…]

TRUE WISDOM COMES FROM GOD…

True wisdom comes from God… Everyone should learn to think for themselves. Whether it is accidental or intentional, the absence of knowledge will generally lead to foolish thought or action. Showing misjudgment or stupidity out of a genuine lack of knowledge or personal ignorance is somehow understandable, while foolish actions derived from allegiance to an unrighteous cause, be they for recognition or financial profit, should never be considered moral or justifiable. Selling your soul for any cause or reason that is not Godly can never be considered judicious. The elimination of sound doctrine or reason must always be considered the [Read More…]

THE SIGNIFICANCE OR IMPORTANCE OF THE TRUTH…

The significance or importance of the truth. Reality: When the truth of God and His Word are diminished, we die. Every truth that is honest and pure was established before the creation of man. The truth did not evolve or mature, like man; it is the central thought and action of its Creator, almighty God. “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17). Every truth has originated from the same entity or source, GOD! God is the One that gives the truth its authority and purpose. If we choose to live abundant lives, we must be obedient [Read More…]

ALWAYS DOING WHAT IS PROFITABLE…

  Interesting Concept … Even though I must be busy in my service to the Lord, if I am to accomplish His will in my life, I must learn to wait upon Him.  My every thought and motivation must come from Him. “And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:3-4). The difficulties in life come from [Read More…]

JESUS IS THE ANSWER…

  One would think that problems come before solutions; but, after a moment’s reflection, that may not be the case. When we think about life, from the very beginning we are sure to think about our problems. “Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward” (Job 5:7). Life in and of itself is never simple and easy; and, we as mortal beings do not make things any easier. Coming up with solutions to our problems, many times, only seems to leave us more perplexed and dumbfounded; we create more problems than we solve. The only solution that [Read More…]

SECURITY, WHAT IS IT…

Security, what is it? Where does it come from? Recently I was given the opportunity to enter the Publisher Clearing House $5,000.00 a week lottery. Having a lot of instances where I could put that money to good use, I was thinking how nice it would be to win such a contest.  It seems that there is never enough money to go around and that there are more causes than cures. The house is in need of repairs; and, the family is in want of what they consider, the necessities of life. The church warrants my financial assistance; and it [Read More…]

THE ANSWER WOULD BE THE SAME…

  Whether I am saved and I tell the world about its wonderful God, the One who created it all; or, being lost, I warn them about my empty, unfulfilled life, my recommendation would be the same. Whether I am saved or lost, He is still the best option. Trusting in Him gives my soul true meaning and purpose; it gives me eternal prosperity and the blessed hope of a better day.  Without Him I was full of doubt and despair, I was alone and afraid. I had no peace or security, nothing to hold on to, nothing good to [Read More…]

BOUGHT WITH A PRICE…

BOUGHT WITH A PRICE… Bought With a Price … When I think about this world and all that it means in the life of mankind, how it promises to reward all those who are willing to heed its call, to fall down and worship; I am left in a quandary. What am I to do, and where am I to go? The promise of complete fulfillment and pleasure are alluring, they seem to be the best of what life has to offer. “Again, the devil take-eth him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of [Read More…]
