Are You a Child of Promise? 5-19

We need to understand that our faith works through God’s love for us – not our love for Him. When we understand the depth, width, and length of His love for us, how much He loves us, then He will be able to do more than we can ask for or think according to the power (Love) that works in us!

Jesus Heals

We are meant to leave a legacy.  Are you leaving behind a white picket fence and an inheritance for your children?  Or are you leaving behind a story of healing that will point countless generations toward the one true savior?

Terrible Responsibility of Free Will

The Galatian Church was floundering, they were turning back to what they had come out of, they were stagnant, lukewarm, and turning from what they were called to be and do. The Holy Spirit, through Paul, was and is warning the church not to turn back to the law or the world.

Forgiveness: Guaranteed! 4-21

Today, we not only celebrate the life and death, but the resurrection of Jesus the Christ! Christmas is important, without the birth of our Savior there would be no Easter celebration, but without the Resurrection, we would not celebrate His birth! His birth split time into BC, Before Christ and AD, Anno Domini. But again this would not have happened if Jesus would have been just another good teacher, or religious leader.

Forgiveness of Self 4-7

To say that God can’t forgive you is to call Him a liar; you are spiritually blind and you have placed yourself above God claiming to know better than He does.

It is very important to let go of your past sins. If you have faith that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, you don’t need to feel guilty. Guilt causes you to avoid—conviction comes to provoke you to change – to take the next step and move forward.

The Cost of Forgiveness

While we can receive things free of charge, it cost someone somewhere something.  The free gift of Salvation was paid for by somebody else. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 tells us we were bought at a price, “do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 

The Promises of God – Part 2 3-24

We are all equal in the sight of God, the man-made dividing walls can only be removed by the witness and work of the Spirit through God’s people who practice, and work for, equality, justice, and love for all.   The foundation of our unity is love of God and neighbor. Since God’s word clearly teaches that we were all created form the same substance, “Dust you are and to dust you shall return,” should we not behave towards each other with love and fellowship and offer the same grace that was afforded us (Genesis 3:19)?

The Promises of God – Part 1 3-17

The Old Testament practice of circumcision had value only if you obeyed the Law. But if you didn’t, or don’t, obey God’s Law, you are no better off than an uncircumcised gentile; an unbeliever. If anyone counts on works of the Law for salvation/grace today, they have failed to recognize what Jesus accomplished on the Cross, failed to understand the blood shed for their sin, failed to accept the grace and the life given for their redemption. They are still dead in their sin!
