Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. - 1 Peter 1:3
Sometimes our life seems to spiritually become foggy and we lose sight of what really matters...
I was reading ROMANS CHAPTER 1 the other day. I was reminded that the greatest, most impacting decision we will ever make is “Whom will I worship?” No other decision we can make is as important or life-changing. Every other thing we think and say and do is merely a SYMPTOM of Whom or what we...
“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.

“Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of Love!
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,
Opening to the sun above!
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness,
Drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the Light of day!
All Thy works with joy surround Thee!
Wednesday, May 4, 2016, 5:38 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song, “Lord, Move Me.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Romans 12:1-2 (ESV).
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which...
When God says in his Word that we are to be holy as he is holy, he means that we are to be separate from (different, unlike) this sinful world, because we are becoming like Jesus. His idea of worship of him is that we offer our lives to him as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to him, which...
