Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness

Jesus assured us that He will bring to full completion the work He began. Knowing this, we should acknowledge that personal holiness can only be realized when one incorporates discipline into his or her life for the sole purpose of engaging in the study of becoming more like Jesus. The bible teaches how to be more like Jesus. Leading a spiritually disciplined life leads to a personal holy life. According, to Pastor John Russell, the…

JESUS CHRIST’S CALL

The focal point of this writing is to connect the “being” to the “doing” of a Christian life. Additionally, understanding what is required to serve God, and how to grow in Christ so we can glorify Him, throughout our lifetime is addressed. Simply put, “to live a Christian life one must be a Christian, and “being” and “claiming” to be a Christian are two different things. Furthermore, to do good deeds, worthy of Jesus Christ’s…

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND A PSYCHIC?

A few days ago I starting giving some thought to what kind of work-at-home career I can have when my unemployment runs out in a couple of months. Even though I’ve applied for jobs as required to receive unemployment benefits, nothing’s panning out. So what I’m doing is being pro-active! I’m not waiting until I get that last check. And actually I love blogging, so I’ve even considered making that a career instead of a…

DRY DRUNK CHRISTIANS

A large segment of our society won’t know what “dry drunk” means, and that’s a good thing. However, the bad thing about this label is how perfectly  “dry drunk” fit’s some Christians. You see the plain and simple definition of a dry drunk is; someone who has stopped drinking, but who still demonstrates the same alcoholic behaviors and attitudes. That said; let’s get down to the “nitty-gritty” on how this description hits the nail on…

Video: Seeing My Eyes Through His

Seeing my eyes through His? Are your eyes wide shut? To recognize opportunity knocking at your door you have to be paying attention. The most wonderful thing about youthfulness is that it is blind, you rarely see it coming or going. I have no shame in my game, I know things change, which is all the more reason to drink, drink while the water of life is running. Free-flowing water is opportunity knocking at your…

TONIGHT YOU ARE ALIVE BECAUSE HE LIVES

You are alive tonight because He lives. The Lord God will see to it that whatever you need today, this morning, afternoon, evening or night you shall have. Just don’t confuse needs with wants. God’s priorities do not take our wants into consideration unless they fit into His will. For many, this concept of shepherding may seem confusing but they need only read Philippians 4:19, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to…

When God Speaks I Listen

  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking at your own interests, but each of you to the interest of others. Philippians 2:3-4 NIV About four years ago, I belonged to a church that is considered progressive. The pastor allowed young men to deliver the sermon on youth day. I thought this was pretty cool. Not only did young pastors preach young people ran…

SEEING WHO GOD SEES IN THE MIRROR

When we look in the mirror it’s rare to see what God sees. That’s because our vision, thoughts, and opinions of ourselves are not his. In other words, “no matter how much we think we got it all right the possibility that it’s mostly wrong is very very real. Why do you think that is? Well, for starters we are not perfect. Yes, even perfect Patty, pretty Paula or smart Susan fall short somewhere. All…

Before This Soldier Died He Wrote This Letter

(If You Only News) shared this letter in a news article, written by a dying veteran soldier. This brave man was determined to expose the Iraq war for what it really was, honor the almost 5000 American soldiers who lost their life defending a bogus war, and expose the main two players responsible for it all!
