How to be Christlike during this Time of Division

The rise in the aggressive display of racism is becoming more and more prevalent across the country. Anglos feel threatened, and Afro-Americans feel that they are under attack, and must develop a power base to fight back. Therefore resentment, anger, hate, and frustration leads to a polarized society, that functions on ignorance, rather than...

Our Great Intercessor

Christ’s presence, at the right hand of God, is something no person in the Old Testament ever had the privilege of enjoying. Job, in the midst of his pain and mourning, cried out (Job 33:23) but did not have the intercessor like we have today. Our prayers being answered as a result of Christ...

Valentine’s Day Reminder

Remember not too long ago, you were passing out Valentines to every classmate with little hearts drawn on the little pack of cards bought by your parents. I’m sure back then little thought was given to the fact that the biblical principle, loving thy neighbor as thyself, may not have crossed your minds. But then...

How to Get Prayers Answered

When we pray the fundamental question is how do we get God to respond positively to our request? It should never be whether or not Jesus listens because He is always at the right hand of God (Hebrews 8:1-2), the Holy Spirit lives inside of us (John 14:16-17; 1 John 4:4) and hears even the groans...

Prayer Focus

If there is anything that I battle with in my walk with the Lord is not praying as I go, but taking time to pray that is alone time with God. This was so much a part of the Jewish culture as we see has become a pattern with traditional Jews who stop each...

Faithful Prayer

Have you ever prayed and feel like God is listening but not responding? You know He is providing complete attention but He is silent. You are not the only one. David felt the same; “To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, do not be deaf to me, I will become like those who...

Empowered by God’s Presence

Our biblical heroes were not superhuman, they overcame and grew due to their reliance on God’s continual presence and His powerful healing in the midst of their circumstances.  God’s presence is a necessary reminder of who heals us as we encounter church hurt, divorce, past negative experiences, feeling alone, marital issues, past abuse, cancer...

Abiding in God’s Love

 Abraham Lincoln was successful not just because he became president of the United States of America but because no matter how poor or how many times, he lost a race, he never gave up (I believe 8 times). It took a very long time for people to believe in this self-educated lawyer. At one time...

Expecting God’s Hand

Let us end this year forgetting what is behind and begin the new year with great expectations. What I mean is don’t allow anything in the pass year to curb our excitement or reduce our expectations for the new year. There are many people who are not here at the end of this year...
