    Mind Games

    Mind Games An Original Work / April 16, 2018 You use and abuse, And you tell tall tales. You promise to change, But to no avail. When you’re asked to change, Then you raise your claws. You rage and refuse To give truth applause. Then, you seem to know Of what you did wrong. You cry and...

    In Action and Truth

    What Great Love 1 John 3:1-3 ESV See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.

    A Common Thread

    If you, being a follower of Jesus Christ, were to write a testimony of what difference Jesus Christ has made in your life, what would that say? Surely, each of our testimonies would be as individual as we are, but there should also be a common thread weaved throughout all of them. The Lord...

    Not in Freedom!

    My heart is burdened. Why is it so burdened? Because so many Christians, or professing Christians, are walking (living) in sin and not in freedom! The Lord Jesus led me to read Galatians 5 (Select vv. ESV). For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a...

    Enslaved Again?

    Do you lay claims to being a follower of Jesus Christ? Does your walk match your talk? Or are you, behind closed doors, someone else entirely?

    Giving Up?

    Do you ever feel that you have sinned so badly that there is no hope for you? That you can never be forgiven? Or, that you will never gain victory over your sin? And, so you give up? And, you just give in to the sin? Well, there is hope for you! Jesus Christ, God the Son, died on a cross, not...
