THE GHOST of CHRISTMAS

The story of Christmas appears to get camouflaged by all the fanfare and the trappings such as Santa Claus, Christmas trees, gifts and commercialism. Oh, but, there are so many good movies just to name a few such as ‘The Miracle on 34th Street’. The Ghost of Christmas is not Ebenezer Scrooge or some fairyContinue reading “THE GHOST of CHRISTMAS”

Be Everything God has Called You To Be

God wants you to be and to use you and your personality just as you are. He wants to use your talents and giftings for His purposes and for His glory not yours nor a church. God is to be glorified.

I find that in our world of independence and individualism we tend take pride in trying to figure things out ourselves, or we try to get healed on our own.For someContinue reading “It’s OK to Ask for Help!”

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED

This license plate says it all, “HEALED”.Only God knows the suffering they may have endured in the past but excited to tell the world. Jesus became our wounded healer who suffered and died on the cross. Isaiah prophesied 700 years prior that Christ would be crucified for the sins of the whole world. Jesus notContinue reading “BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED”

Be Alert and Watchful

Spritual battles and the power of temptation are real in our lives. One of the big differences of increased warfare is when we pursue God for truth with passion. Why is that? The enemy is a deceiver and the father of lies. “For you are the children of your father the devil, and you loveContinue reading “Be Alert and Watchful”
