    Fearlessly Make Known

    Be Strong Ephesians 6:10-12 NIV Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers...

    Temptation to Stray

    Envy and Pride Psalm 73:1-9 ESV Truly God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For they have no pangs until death...

    The Miracles of Jesus Christ in the Gospels (Part 2)

    Greetings, In Part 1 I asked about any references you could think of or remember or find that gave a picture of what we as sinners before Christ were like and the miracle of Jesus in our life as a healing and delivering consequence. For example, I was once both blind to the truth and deaf to...

    No Temptation

    In 2014, I tried my hand at some short devotionals where I spoke them, and I put the words into a Power Point Presentation, and then made them into videos, and I posted them on YouTube.

    Walk in Victory

    We are saved from our sins, and given eternal life with God, not just so we can escape hell and have the promise of heaven as our eternal home. When we believe in Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of our lives, our new lives in Christ Jesus have only begun. He has so much he wants to do in and...

    What's the Plan?

    Just because Jesus set us free from bondage to sin does not mean we will never be tempted to sin again. We will! Even Jesus was tempted of Satan, yet he never gave in to any temptation. He was without sin. But, not us. So, what do we do when we are tempted? Better yet, what do we do to avoid...

    audio Extinguishing Satan’s Flaming Missiles

    The spiritual missiles Satan shot at our heroes of the Bible are the same ones he aims at us today. He influences our thinking, tempts us to dwell on sinful thoughts, and soon leads us to sinful actions. But when the enemy attacks, you can extinguish his flaming missiles! Part 1 Part 2...

    One star differeth from another star in glory. 1Corinthians 15:41 By the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

    Temptation

    It’s not wrong to be tempted. All of us will be tempted at some point in our lives. We just read that even Jesus was tempted. But, it becomes wrong when we give in to the #temptation and do something we know isn’t right. Here’s the thing about temptation. It looks good at first. It could tempt...
