Show Consideration to Others

Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the […]

Give Yourself to God

Do you think the Scriptures mean nothing? The Scriptures say, “The Spirit God made to live in us wants us only for himself.” But the kindness God shows is greater. As the Scripture says, “God is against the proud, but he is kind to the humble.” So give […]

All to Jesus I surrender

God’s power protects you through your faith, and it keeps you safe until your salvation comes. That salvation is ready to be given to you at the end of time. I know the thought of that is exciting, even if you must suffer through different kinds of troubles […]

The Right Attitude

Ephesians 5:6 Don’t let anyone fool you with worthless words. People who say things like that aren’t obeying God. He is angry with them.  What we say affects others and what others say affects us. I used to work with a guy who used to complain about the […]

Humility is a precursor to honor

Pride first, then the crash, but humility is a precursor to honor. The payoff for meekness and Fear-of-God is plenty and honor and a satisfying life. You who are younger must follow your leaders. But all of you, leaders and followers alike, are to be down to earth […]
