And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. Exodus 14:13-14 Lately, I’ve come face-to-face with the stealer of joy: comparison. I’ve been learning the slow … More Faithful and True
Our culture likes to discard the old traditions, picking and choosing what they wish to hear and trashing what “doesn’t apply to them”. This is our greatest downfall in the church alone. We have called the Old Testament, the Law, old-fashioned and deemed it unnecessary – instead, chasing after the loving New Testament letters of … More Two Necessities: Law and Grace
Functions. What does the Holy Spirit do? If we are to recognize the Holy Spirit working in the church, we must understand what He does. Some things which we can attribute to the Holy Spirit are the following: Those are only a few we listed at The River Friday night. I’m sure you will have … More Kingdom Builders
This Passover season, it’s easy to feel like you are inadequately observing Passover as we are commanded. As a “Gentile” Christian, I have heard many times the common concern: are we supposed to observe the feast as well? I was shown a video that I enjoyed explaining it is not merely about the rituals but … More Attitude over Action
The church is being divided. Satan prowls around as a lion, devouring the church. Separating, dividing, distracting, and singling us out so we may fall into our weaknesses. The modern-day religion of Christianity is working. The Coexist and the ecumenical movements are working. The True Bride of Christ is not standing. We are compromising with … More Fitly joined together…
Tonight I ventured to the Gulf to watch the sunset for a dear friend. As I was capturing my pictures, I couldn’t help but think of the depths of the love of Jesus as I slowly waded into the water (surprise! I do photography once in a while too). As I watch the water lap … More Stillness
Have you ever watched detective shows? Or an investigative series? Regardless, I’m sure we’ve all seen (thanks to the media, news outlets, and Hollywood) a dead body. You may know that when a body dies, it goes into a state of rigidness. It is called rigor mortis. (Inventive, I know.) There is also another stage … More Swelling: alive or dead?
If there’s anything I love, it’s a good metaphor. How about I share one before we start our discussion? We fight an unseen enemy, one not of the physical realm. We are called to the front lines in battle. Many are falling off and listening to weak and cocky sergeants. They forget the commander’s battle … More The War Cry
Throughout February and March, I’ve been struggling with the concept of trust. Trusting in God for His ultimate plan and being patient when I cannot see the answer on the horizon. I was led to a passage in Psalms which I have claimed as my promise: Psalm 37. I will not relay all the things … More Follow Your Heart?
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 We’ve all heard this: God has a purpose for you. A plan. A future. If you’re like me, it’s hard to understand since there’s no clear-cut definition. I’d like to give you encouragement: The chief end of man is to glorify God … More Finding Purpose…
