What is this thing we call love?

Today is Valentine’s Day. I thought I talk a little about this thing we call Love. We celebrate love in February, and it’s often referred to as the “month of love”.  The celebration climaxes on February 14th – Valentine’s Day. This day is dedicated to expressing affection and love between intimate companions. People around the world exchange cards, flowers, and gifts to …

Valentine’s Day

Next Wednesday is Valentine’s Day, the day we celebrate love. So, this week I’d like to talk a little on the subject of love.

I was thinking back many years ago, about some of my first Valentine’s memories. …

Cherry Picking

Wow, this is the last day of January. This year is going by really fast.  This week, I would like to talk about “cherry picking” the Bible. “Cherry picking” refers to the act of selectively choosing and interpreting biblical verses or passages to support one’s own beliefs, while disregarding or omitting others that may challenge or contradict those beliefs. This …

Follow me.

  This week I would like to talk a little about our Christian lifestyle. What do others see when they look at your life? Do they see the spirit of God clearly… or maybe it’s a little tarnish… or it may have a lot of rust on it. Every Christian will have some wear and tear on our life due …

Welcome 2024!!!

As we say goodbye to 2023, and welcome in the New year of 2024, we need to take a moment and reflect on our lives. Did the things that happened to us last year make us Stronger? Weaker?

Bye, Bye 2023… Hello 2024!!!

In just a very few days will be welcoming in a new year 2024. I would like to pause for a moment to look back and reflect on this year.   This year was surely a year to remember.

Sharing the Gospel: Our Role as Christians

I came across a social media post this week that said, “We cannot force someone to hear a message they are not ready to receive, but we must never underestimate the power of planting a seed.” In other words, we need to be seed planters. As Christians, we are called to fulfill the Great Commission that is to share the …

Our Walk…

As we welcome the month of October and some nice cool fall weather, I would like to take a little time and talk about our walk with God. When we gave our lives to God, we found a partner in this life. We found someone to guide and lead us and help along the path of life. He is also …

The End of the world…

We need not to worry about dying… When you die, don’t worry about your body… Your relatives and funeral staff will take care of it. I know this for sure, I’ve been there… and done that. They will take you out of the house and deliver you to the funeral home of your family’s choice. They will take off your …

Church Attendance…

The other day a question came up, “Why aren’t there more people in church? I started thinking about this… Really… Why aren’t more people in church??? For all of us that believe, we know the benefits of attending church regularly, such as the benefits of prayer, learning, fellowship, ministering to others, encouragement, just to name a few of them. This …

I’m a Good Person…

I’m a good person, so I’ll go to Heaven. God doesn’t send good people to hell. Somehow some believe that being a good person opens the gates of Heaven for you. Some churches believe you can work your way to heaven and still others believe that after you have died, you can be prayed into heaven.  How many times have …

Death is Coming…

It’s been said there are only two things in life we can be sure of… Taxes and Death. We really don’t have any control over either one. The government tells us how much tax to pay and when to pay it. And as for death… We know it’s coming but we don’t know when or how it will happen. So …

CPR Needed…

Have you notice lately, how many church closings and Church buildings being put up for sale. My hope is that they outgrew the building and moved to a larger one. But the reality is, they can’t exist because of lack of support and growth. These churches were once a hospital for the spiritual sick and dying, but now a lot …

Is Hell Real?

Have you ever had someone tell you that they do not believe that there is a Hell?  Maybe they made a statement such as, “How can a loving God send anyone to hell?” I have even heard a remark, “Well, at least I’ll be with my friends.” This week I would like to talk a little about Hell. So, what …

Choices…

This week I had someone ask me “Why does God send people to Hell? After all God is Good, God is Love, and God is Merciful. So, why would he send and torture anyone or anything? He when on to say that everyone should go to Heaven.  These are very good questions I replied, let me try to give you …
