Life in the Fast Lane

Posted on August 30, 2022 at 1:50 AM

Sometimes life is so good that we don't have the time to do all the things we'd like to do. Then we want to set the pace, sometimes making the wrong decisions. Be sure to make the right decision. The game; is already set. You got to get in where you fit in. When you start to live in the fast lane. It's called (hurry up and wait); you are moving too fast. Speeding is dangerous when you travel too fast. When we were teenagers, we could not wait to get 21 and ...

Dealing with your brokenness is a job too big for you. When you admit you have a problem, you can do something about it. Turning to drugs and alcohol will not solve the problem. A chemical will only change the way you feel. You will get worse. Suicide is not an option; it's a cop-out. There is hope for the broken-hearted and everyone with a broken spirit. Give God a chance and see what will happen. God is waiting on you to ask for His help. He has a plan for your life. H...

Going to Hell is No Joke!

Posted on July 3, 2022 at 12:05 AM

It saddens my heart to hear people joke about going to hell. Hell is a real place of torment; it's not a joke. People rashly think that there is no hell. The general statement about hell is; that God is so loving that He would not create such a place. That's looking at it one way. If God would create a place (heaven) for them that love Him, why not a place (hell) for those who do not love Him. Man did at one time live in paradise, but he was EVICTED. Not because he did n...

Working for God

Posted on June 6, 2022 at 6:05 PM

The God I work for is Alpha and Omega; there is none beside Him nor any above Him. The God I serve is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Creator and sustainer of all life now and forever more.

I have been preaching God's Word for 42 years and praying for the people of God. God has never let me down. Things have not always gone my way. God has bestowed many blessings that I didn't deserve. I found out that He is a rewarder of the faithful workers. ...

God Loves you enough to Restore you

Posted on May 28, 2022 at 1:40 PM

Restoration is for the repentant soul. If you are out of the ark of safety, you should repent. God will reconcile and restore you. You must confess your sins. We all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. David cried for mercy and received it.

The 51st number of Psalm is a plea for restoration. “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my ...

The Test of Time

Posted on May 14, 2022 at 1:15 PM

Can you remember how God brought you out of your wilderness? Over the years, you started to forget God and His goodness. You can deceive yourself by thinking you made it on your own. When you get to the top, the bottom is waiting for your return. Don't forget the people that helped you along the way. The gutter is waiting on your return. The mistakes you made in the past ought not to dictate your future. Learn from those mistakes and rise to meet the challenges of...

The Christian Walk, Work, and Worship

Posted on April 23, 2022 at 1:30 PM

Love and faith are the theme and passion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Christ showed love to everyone, even His enemies. We are representatives of Christ; we should think with the mind of Christ, we should walk as Christ walked fulfilling the will of God by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are saved by faith through Christ Jesus the Lord. Not by good works as some men may think. Being in the will of God makes us safe. Without the grace of God, we would self-des...

Don't let nothing take away your Joy

Posted on April 17, 2022 at 12:55 AM

You have more reasons to celebrate your life than you realize. Decide to stop complaining and put your faith in action. You will see some results and some answered prayers. When you can't find a reason to smile, it might be you. Happiness comes in many ways. Look on the inside of yourself and find peace and joy. Money is not always the answer. Sometimes it can be your downfall. When you focus on what you don't have, you don't appreciate what you already have. Life...

You may not be here next year or Don't let God have to cut you down

Posted on April 11, 2022 at 12:05 AM

St Luke 13:6-9


Every Christian should learn this parable. It reminds us to do a self-exam. We should give an account of the fruit that we bear. We are the branches, Christ is the vine. Jesus warns us about being unfruitful. "Saying every branch that does not bear fruit is taken away. And every branch that beareth fruit is purged that it may bring forth much fruit."

In the text, we must unde...

Love will Melt a Heart of Stone

Posted on March 11, 2022 at 5:45 PM

As you study the Bible, you will discover a book of many teachings. The lessons are for the betterment of life. You will read about riddles, parables, and the power of love. Love is the greatest element in the world because it is associated with blood. There is nothing like true love. The Bible teaches forgiveness and giving are the beginning of love.
