The Great Encounter
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21 Each of us helps to write the story of the human race every time we make a choice. Every single one of us is a part of this fascinating story. We either add to the dignity of our race by making choices that promote goodness, or we further degrade it by making those… Continue

What is a FRIEND Continue
Think about this for a minute....
If you happened to show up on my door step crying,
I would care!
If you called me and asked
Me to pick you up because something happened,
I would come!
If you had one day left
to live your life,
I would want to be part of
That last day!
If you needed a shoulder
to cry on,
I would give you mine!
This is a test to see who…

I do not know the future,
I just live from day to day,
I do not know what problems
may pop up along the way.
I do know if I’ll be well
Or taken by some ill,
But one thing that I surely know
My Lord will keep me still
I do knot what burdens I may
be called upon to bear
I do not know how long I have
His precious love to share
I do not know the reasons
For things that happen… Continue

Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God

Cognitive Dissonance "Temptation is the pull of man's own evil thoughts and
wishes ... [that will] lead to evil actions."1
Did you ever stop to think that what the mind dwells
on the body acts on!
Consider, for example, how temptation works. A thought
comes to mind from seemingly nowhere--maybe from
ourselves or from the tempter. We choose (mostly
unconsciously) to harbour and dwell on… Continue

“Good Is The Enemy Of Great.”
“That’s what makes death so hard – unsatisfied curiosity” – Beryl Markham
Like Lewis and Clark, it would be deeply satisfying for me to climb into a boat, and head West saying, “we don’t know what we’ll find when we get there, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we get back."
I love adventure.
• I like eating at restaurants that I’ve never eaten at before.
• I like going places I’ve never been before.
• I will often take a… Continue

The Possessive Life
Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.
Whatever possessions we may acquire in this world, these were never meant to be anything more than tools to be used in the service of spiritual priorities. As mere "things," our possessions were intended to take their character from our character. But we tend to let the tail wag the dog. We attach so much significance to our things that they begin to define us and our character… Continue

Faith Appeals Continue
Some people think that when Christians are challenged, they should roll over and play dead--to “turn the other cheek” at all times. Oftentimes that’s exactly what we’re supposed to do as a way of submitting to one another and honoring those in authority over us.
But then there are other times when we, as followers of Christ, are…

Weep With Those Who Weep
"When Jesus saw her [Mary] weeping, and the Jews who
had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply
moved in spirit and troubled. 'Where have you laid him
[Lazarus]?' he asked. 'Come and see, Lord,' they
replied. Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, 'See how he

What Is Sin Anyhow? "Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, 'Did God really say, "You must not eat from any tree in the garden?"'"1 Most readers will be familiar with God's test to the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. God made it clear to them that they could eat of every tree in the Garden of Eden except for one particular tree. If they ate of this tree, they would die.2 To tempt them, Satan (appearing… Continue

Blessings of Unanswered Prayer
Jesus said, "If you, then, though you are evil, know
how to give good gifts to your children, how much more
will your Father [God] in heaven give good gifts to
those who ask him!."1
Terry Fitzgerald Sieck shared how she "was in the
habit of praying very specifically for what she
wanted. She told God in great detail about the kind of
job, the kind of husband, the kind of life… Continue

At Pearl Harbour, for example, 96% of those who received plasma, survived. After World War II Charles Drew was named director of the National Blood Bank Program, and devoted himself to teaching doctors at Howard University Medical… Continue

JOHN THREE SIXTEEN - THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD
TEXT - John 3:16
INTRO. - I believe this to be the greatest verse in all
the Bible. It is the best loved and best known verse.
There are only 25 words in this verse yet no other
single verse in all the Scriptures has been as blessed
in the salvation of so many souls. Martin Luther called
John 3:16 the miniature gospel. It has been called the
gospel in a… Continue

The Benefits of Baptism
1. In our present busy existence it is easy to forget the significance of believer’s baptism. Baptism is the outward manifestation of an internal spiritual reality. Whereas Paul’s conversion was completely initiated by Divine intervention, his baptism integrated him with the entire life of other members of the body of Christ.
Through Paul’s baptism he professed his death to sin through… Continue

No Person is Beyond God’s Grace
As we read through this familiar passage for many of us, listen or follow along in your Bibles or pew I want you to begin thinking about this question I will ask again at the end: is there anyone you know that you have thought, ‘this person is too far gone,’ or have written them off. Perhaps you have even subconsciously thought, even God can’t save this person or turn them… Continue
