Christianity is More Than Believing, It’s Doing

Ephesians 6.13-18 commands, be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out. MSG


Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. This is the command of God, how diligent are we to ‘apply’ these words? To apply them we must think about them, we must consider them, and we must pursue them with the Church for in the family of God is wisdom and accountability for not only knowing but for taking action upon these things God has commanded.



Receiving a Blessing or Being a Blessing

Psalm 81.10 I am the Lord your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

We all want God to bless us. God wants to bless us. What is the blessing of God? The truest blessing, the greatest blessing is the blessing of God Himself. A relationship with God that is personal, near, real, intimate, that is our greatest blessing. Is this the kind of blessing we really want? (more…)


Holiness is God’s Will for His People

Luke 11.2 records, Jesus said, this is how you should pray: Father, may Your Name be kept holy.image

The human manifestation of God asks us to pray that the Name of the Spirit of God be kept holy. This was not a request from concern that God would possibly lose His holiness. This was a concern that those who claim to know God would not fail to represent God in harmony with the character and nature of God.

What is holiness? (more…)


What it Takes to be Good

Matthew 23.26 commands first clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be

Chaos puts us into panic causing us to desire control. In a society that means getting the state to use its power to stop the chaos. When the state implements its power freedom suffers. Many are willing to sacrifice freedom for control or less chaos.

Our world is moving toward greater chaos. (more…)


God’s Desire for Children

2 Thessalonians 1:11 desires that our God will make you the kind of children He wants to have.images

God is on mission to conform us into the image of His First Born Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God seeks to develop a family identity that exhibits a commonality in character and a singleness of focus while allowing individuality in function.

God is not interested in us becoming all that we can be despite what the guy on TV says. God has recorded in His book that He desires us to become all that He created us for, all that He wants for doing His will and glorifying His Name on the earth.

God had in mind a host of works, a particular function for which each of us was uniquely designed to accomplish as part of the greater orchestra of His Church in order to manifest more clearly across the world the wonder and glory of our Father Who is the Creator and Sustainer of all life from all time everywhere.

Our goal should not be to become what we want to be but to become what He wants us to be. (more…)
