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. I had forgotten about them until I was going through some of my older writings today. So, I am going to share...
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...
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.

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!
