He knew what was just and right and the harder decision would have been to go against that and live with his conflicted conscience.
We are weak. We are all weak in some area that we think we are confident, and in a moments glimpse we can sin in a way that will cause our hearts to grieve.
“Love each other”....WHAT?! That was Jon’s last voicemail to his best friend, Eddie, who was having an affair with his wife, before Jon committed suicide in the new ABC series A Million Little Things? A blessing to continue on in a relationship that was breaking every promise he and his wife had made in their…
This is it. The end of one era and the beginning of a new one. Jesus has completed His work of redemption here on earth, and now it is time for His disciples to take the lead in teaching the nations under His authority.
“Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place.” Luke 21:32 This generation....Jesus uses this phrase multiple times in His teachings. "This generation is a wicked generation; it seeks for a sign, and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah.” Luke 11:29…
It’s interesting how men become what they criticize when it suits their purpose; how they can rationalize that it’s okay for them to do it but not someone else.
What would it be like to not believe in an afterlife? To Believe that when you die that is it? Not to believe that there is a resurrection of the soul to something greater (or worse)?
When someone you have looked up to, loved, and respected has been revealed in living in the depths of sin, what will you put on?
I try hard not to be that, One slip of the tongue, I become it. Thoughtlessly I spoke, About a situation, I don’t really know. It opens up doors, Speculations of the heart, Unwarranted, unnecessary. I’m a contributor, In producing animosity, That destroys peace. I repent where I’ve ruined, My example before men, By my…

LUCKY!!! That’s all I can think of when I think about these women.
You think you got it all together, With all your “perfect” works; Tithing and fasting you brag, In your heart arrogance lurks. Don’t point the finger as if, You have no guilt of your own; Putting down that tax collector, You’re true colors you have shone. Look to him who barely lifts, His eyes as…
That deceiver. Is that what He is? In spite of every miracle performed, every prophesy fulfilled, the earth quake that split rocks, the veil of the temple being torn — Jesus is still a deceiver to them.
There’s a side of me that I don’t like and am working hard at overcoming. It’s that side that loves the praise of men as if I am something great.
He did it. He made it till the end. He fulfilled the purpose for which He was born — to yield up His spirit in a shameful way.
She was the one. The only one that understood the magnitude of my struggles. The depth of pain it caused to the extent of hope it drew out. She was my sweet sister, mother in the faith, and inspiring friend — Deb. Deb related to me on a level that no one else had. Being…
A rich master entrusted his money, To a manager who squandered; Confronted the manager acted, On a plan that he pondered. He needed protection, From being put to shame, So he keenly made deals, Indebted to him people became. The master was pleased, At the shrewdness of this man; His threats had lit a fire,…
We raise our kids — teaching them continually — spending hours and hours of godly instruction — hoping that they will follow God and not the world. However, in the end it is their choice.
