The Necessity of Evangelism

Doing real evangelism in a contemporary world demands a correct biblical understanding of the process of evangelism and awareness to the Christian’s responsibility to evangelize.  Relying on pastors, church staff, or a select few to do the work of evangelism will no longer suffice when proper understanding is realized. McRaney states, “When we trust Christ, we become servants and ambassadors of the King, which implies that all of us are to share His message … Evangelism is a command, not just a gift for a select few.  Biblically the evangelist was given to the church as a position, role, office, or function, but evangelism is not just for a select few.” Read more…

Rejection is Powerful

Rejection is one of the most powerful weapons against us however, 99.9% of the time it is self-inflicted!

We have all been rejected few times in our lives, especially by the people we love and trust most. Our parents reject us in our mind when they utter their first “NO” as in our mind they get more liberal to say no the more they use it but this causes us to have the rejection spirit that leads to anger, unforgiveness, resentment, hatred,  etc. Read more…



Look Beyond the Dark

Life seems to be plunged into deep, dark despair. Constant anger, criticism, hateful speech – it is enough to press one into isolation. But when one views life through the lens of the life giver. The way is made clear, the truth shines as bright as the noon day sun and life becomes vibrant.
 
The source of life is Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God. He gave Himself to bring light to the darkness, hope to the hopeless, peace to the anxious and holiness to
the broken. Read more…


Confusion Breeds Discontent

Confusion is a state of mind brought on by uncertainty, relativism, egocentrism, and fear. When one has no foundation which is immutable, no truth which is transcendent, and no standard that does not vacillate the only logical conclusion – confusion.
 
Proverbs 3:5-6 Gives you all you need to be clear eyed. “Trust in the LORD, with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” Read more…


What this Day Means to Americans

Freedom is a beautiful thing. It is defined as a state of being free, the absence of necessity, constraint in choices or actions. It is freedom from the power of another person, organization, state or nation. It is to have all our options open to us in thought, belief and speech, allowing boldness of action and execution in life.


You are Called to Soar

We are empowered by the breath of God to rise on winds of faith soaring about life’s storms. We are eagles who use adversity to triumph as God’s Spirit updrafts us to the calming presence of His Son.
 
Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”. Read more…


There is Hope

Though life may seem hopeless, you wake as dark as midnight and sorrow overflows you like a rogue wave. Remember there is one who is the fountain head of hope, the light that penetrates the darkest night and is the commander of the waves of life that speaks peace be still.
 
That one is, Jesus the God who became man that He may know what we experience and is touched by our dilemmas. He does not just commiserates, but knows intimately what we experience.


When You Do Not Understand, Trust

Proverbs 3:5-7 (MSG) Says, “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your bones will vibrate with life!”
Confusion comes from lack of knowledge and the inability to interpret knowledge

Are we seeking God for US or For HIM?

One of the misconceptions of the scripture is that the Lord Knows where I am. If He wants to Bless me He knows where to Find me. 

Throughout the Word, we find words like these;

Find Me; Proverbs 8:17 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.”

Look for Me; Job 11:7 “Can you find out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limit of the Almighty?”


Standing Alone

We have all been created by God with an innate desire to connect with Him and to be part of something larger than ourselves. Often, this Holy yearning leads us to try and acquire that sense of belonging by fitting in with others and by seeking approval. These are substitutes and barriers to true belonging. Often, we search for acceptance and approval by friends and family rather than seeking His Face and walk according to His commands.
