What About the Thorns?

One of Paul's concerns by the troubles in his life and in his view, he thought he shouldn't have to endure and tolerate such trouble and he wanted to have it his way. The lessons Paul learned were humility - he'll have it God's way; he learned God's power - it will happen regardless; and he experienced God's grace - when in weakness, strength from God will abound!Jesus' Prayer for You and for Me

Jesus has a genuine concern for those who have put Him in their life. It's not nearly enough to bring the concern of others to God in prayer, for this may be sufficient,but the real power of that prayer comes when those we pray for KNOW that we have brought their need to the Father in prayer and they know we are thinking about them, praying for them, taking it to the Father, and they must know we are willing to help in their regard and come to them and tell them of our willingness. This is fulfillment of love.What Kind of Hero Was Moses?

We may question the use of the word "hero" in this respect, but we can see how God works through His children when those who live in obedience to Him can do great work for the Kingdom. When one does good works of obedience to the Lord, that one is a hero for the Kingdom.The God Who Runs

God is not one who remains afar off, aloof, or uninterested. God is wanting all to come to Him. God loves us all and gives grace to us, many times over, if we turn and come to Him. He is the God who offers the second chance of grace.Present Your Body a Living Sacrifice
June 28, 2015 10:05 AM PDT
In many of his writings, the apostle Paul presented the goal of every Christian was to be a living sacrifice to our God. The idea of giving one's self to God, giving over the sin of the body, killing the old self and putting on the life of Christ, allowing the immortal to be alive in our life given to God. Paul presents that challenge in many ways, and in many ways we live for God.What Is the Christian Life?
June 21, 2015 10:05 AM PDT
Many descriptions might come to mind when we consider who Christ is to us and our life. But know that we will compete and we will battle evil and the author of evil and his lies. And this is not a sprint nor will it be easy. But you are equipped with what you will need and you must remain vigilant the rest of your life!Magnify Christ
June 14, 2015 10:05 AM PDT
As we naturally should be compelled to do, is offer praise and accolades for those deserving of our attention. The One who went to the cross, suffered and died on our behalf, giving us the hope of life eternal, if ever there was any reason to give honor, His is the reason to magnify great praise and honor to Him, above ALL else.Commitment According to Paul
June 07, 2015 10:02 AM PDT
For suggestions and guidance regarding commitment to one's faith, the apostle Paul has much to say. It troubled Paul to be restrained and kept from his commitment of teaching about the Christ and the salvation Jesus provides to all. Most importantly, he shows that commitment never wanes and never changes, and is kept until the very end.Keep the Faith

Just as our physical bodies need nourishment, training, and exercise to remain active and vibrant, our spiritual 'bodies' also need nourishment and exercise to remain vigilant for good and righteous in God's eyes. We find that in our faith, remaining faithful through actions of good works, doing good things, obedience to God's will for us, and learning the teaching of God and His Son, Jesus. We must remain accountable to our faith.Memorial Day
May 24, 2015 10:03 AM PDT
Once a year in this country, we set aside a day, a Memorial Day, to remember those who have fallen in their actions to defend this great country. These are selfless acts given in sacrifice for our well-being. There was also one who sacrificed His perfect life of obedience to the Father, God, given in our stead, for us, providing the only way to forgiveness of our sin, and to open the pathway to eternal life in heaven. This memorial day happens every Sunday and we memorialize Christ's life given for us.
