  As believers, we must never allow our faith in Christ and serving Him cross over to self righteousness or haughtiness. A nose in the air does not reflect the love of Christ. We must remember that any righteousness we have is on loan from Jesus. It’s all about Him. “But when the kindness and […]

  God’s perception of leadership is much different than man’s. It’s not the person who communicates best, performs best or even the one with the most charisma. God sees a true leader as the one who serves best. “The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever […]

  “Humility is not thinking less of yourself. It is thinking of yourself less.” C.S. Lewis I woke up very early this morning with the words “stand firm” going over and over in my mind. The enemy wants to take us down, destroy our families, rob of us of joy and diminish our influence. Peter […]

  Anger. Fear. Negativism.  Hate. Deceit. Obviously, I’m talking about the presidential election. Of course, we should perform our civic duty, vote our conscious and pray for who we should vote for. What we should not do is allow the negativity to steal our joy and prevent us from pleasing God. The author of Hebrews reminds […]

  The questions are valid.  Can I really love those who persecute me? Can I really learn to be more like Jesus? Am I worthy to call myself a follower of Christ? The answers are yes, yes and yes…and yes to a hundred other doubts you may have about yourself. You can because you are “equipped.” […]
