Pets and Christians

Tonight was Halloween night. I know that the kids get excited about certain scary stuff. However, I think Halloween can cause a little bad than good. I spent the whole day preparing the "perfect" Halloween party for my step-children. They invited some friends over. Well, around 7:00 p.m. a mother came into my house holding my baby which is a small yorki dog. I have owned this dog for over five years with no health problems. She ran over my dog with her car. I was furious. She claimed it was an… Continue

95 Theses To The Evangelical Church by Greg Gordon(today's Martin Luther?)



"I have been writing this volume while residing in Germany for a teaching trip. I am humbled by penning these 95 theses in the same country as Martin Luther did many years ago. I submit these to the evangelical church of our day and pray that God would allow anything of truth in these pages to bend and change men's hearts back to God." - Greg Gordon -… Continue

The Heart Cry

"Is it true the heart doth cry".

"I hope it is" said dry eye.



"I often hear it's desperate plea",

was the response from bended knee.



Again. the mind surprised by this,

"what cause has brought such amiss".



And then the lips said "hold on there,

'twas the heart that always sent me prayer".



Praying hands could not keep quiet,

and blurted out, "you can't deny it".



"Oh mind with all your great control,

did you not… Continue

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LAZY CHRISTIAN

"Faithful ministers of the word are laborious ones..." - John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

"I laboured more abundantly than they all...This is a sober fact as shown by the Acts and Paul's Epistles. He had tremendous energy and used it. Genius is work, Carlyle said. Take Paul as a specimen." - Robertson's Word Pictures

"We must give account how we have spent our time, how we have improved our opportunities, what we have done and how we have done it." - Matthew… Continue

Love Bears Up Under Anything

Love bears up under anything and everything that comes. Bears up in spite of all things evil, and is not overcome. This is the idea of "beareth." Love bears up against the tide of evil, as the rock against the waves.







When a man and woman marry, they vow to love each other "in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, for better or worse." This type of love is characteristic of the love described in I Corinthians 13. This kind of love, we have learned in our other… Continue

Softer Than Air

Softer Than Air



Eight hours now without a break,

don't they know that her feet ache.



Running late to pick up the kids,

their Dads is in jail for selling lids.



I love you the words were softer than air,

Startled she turns but no one is there.



Sneak past the landlord one time again,

delaying her rent until the weekend.



Need to make dinner but the cupboard is bare,

praying to someone that just doesn't… Continue

Love Doesn't Rejoice At Injustice

LOVE DOES'NT REJOICE AT INJUSTICE

3 stars | 5 comments | December 11, 2008 | 351 reads





Love does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.





I heard someone (a company I had been to) had recently been robbed. I found myself feeling kinda glad because of the way I had been treated by them in the past. This initial feeling quickly turned into GUILT which results in conflict between the Holy Spirit and the still… Continue

WHAT IS IMPORTANT? WHAT MAKES FOR SUCCESS?

What are the things that are important to us in society? What does the world say we need to succeed?



According to most societies, to succeed one needs to be learned (have a good education), to be self-made (strong, determined and confident), and to be well-born (come from good family). Africa is no exception to those expectations. However, what does God say?



Let's take a peak in the Bible and see. In 1 Corinthians 1, look at the ones that God chooses.



"For… Continue

Love Takes No Account of Evil

Love takes no account of the evil done to it. Here again, the King James rendering, just doesn't cut it for me. It renders I Cor 13 verse 5 as "...thinketh no evil", but when you dig a little deeper into the original use of these words, you see that this refers to: a taking into account of things, and in this particular case, the thing is "NO EVIL".



Now in keeping within the context that this verse is in, we are talking about how LOVE, TAKES NO ACCOUNT OF THE EVIL DONE TO IT, another… Continue

What Kind Of Love Is This

What kind of love is this,

that searched my soul without remiss.



This love that fills from deep within,

bringing me to remit my sin.



Love that changed my brokeness,

and gave to me a heart of bliss.



A love that leads where I've not been,

And causes me to rejoice therein.



This love I have cannot be mine,

it must be Christ's, it's so divine.



Teaching me of things so true,

"His" love now I bring to… Continue

The Light

I held this love up to the light,

to see what grips my heart so tight.



What secret power lies within,

that softens hearts of callus men.



I held this love up to the light,

searching for the source so bright.



Could this love just be my own,

that reaches out to all unknown.



I held this love up to the light,

to understand with all my might.



The answer came from up above,

it was the 'Light' that was this… Continue

Love is Not Conceited

Love is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride) (ou physiOUtai) Original Greek Definition: To inflate, blow or puff up. In the NT spoken only figuratively of pride or self-conceit. Also from phySAo-:emphySAo- (1720), to breathe on, blow on. Before we get into this section of Love, I wanted to share something from Calvin.





"Nothing swells the minds of men so much as a high notion of their own wisdom"

(Calvin, p. 471).







We, Christians, know that… Continue

Love and Hate

Many people that I have talked to, speak of love and hate as opposite from each other. My friends, it's just not true. Something is opposite love but it is not hate. What it is and why this is important for us to know, is the object of this section in our study of love.



We know that God is Love and so love is not something God created.



I John 4 8. He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love.



God is… Continue

Love is Kind

Like Patience, Kindness also comes into the Christian by grace, through the Holy Spirit. It is the fruit of Gods Love, now abiding in us, as a result of our decision to Trust in and Rely upon Him. Kindness is produced in us by the Holy Spirit in seasons of spiritual growth. This growth is the result of the love that the Holy Spirit brings into us and our growing knowledge of GODS truth, (His WORD).



As the TRUTH about ourselves and each other is revealed to us (we are all sinners,… Continue

This Thing Called Love

This is a study of Gods Word concerning the source; importance; meaning; and application of the teachings about Love.



The verses from Mat 22:34-40 and the first three verses of I Cor 13 (together) had been on my mind for some time before I attempted to prepare this study. It seemed like the Lord would not let me rest with the relevance of this subject in relation to the teachings of the church.



While you will find many loving churches that teach subjects relating to love,… Continue
