To Live is Christ!!

We would be hard pressed to find a stronger confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ than that the Apostle Paul declares in Galations 2:20:

"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."

Jesus Christ is our life, not only now but also in the eternity to come! Because of this, we can proclaim boldly (Col. 3:4, Heb. 4:16) that our life, as believers is really His "risen from the dead" empowered life within us!! Because He lives --we to live!! Praise God!!

Daily hallelujah's ring loudly round the world because of His life glorifying praise within us! Jesus stated so thoughtfully, that when He departed to heaven He would not leave His disciples as orphans but that He would send a helper and comforter to indwell within us; One who would guide us into all truth bringing back to our rememberance the awesome words that Jesus taught. That He does faithfully and 2000 years later, still, He empowers us through all our difficulties and struggles.

Sometimes, daily and hourly, we must reach for His strength to empower us, and that is not an impossible task, for He has given us as protection the Breastplate of His Righteousness which is able to snuff completely the lies of the enemy as he tells us we are not worthy to be a child of God. Then there is the Sword of the Spirit--the word of God, which we are then able to wield against all that would try to destroy that faith!

Oh blessed Jesus come be by our side this day, as we seek to honor You in the presence of our enemies! May our lives be filled with joy as we see Your mighty hand working in those who so badly need your healing and uplifting touch. It is You that we hold high and extoll in the sight of the blind and the unbelieving! May Your church continue to live and grow victoriously even in the darkest areas of the world. To You oh Father, we give glory, honor, and praise even as we breathe the breath that You alone provide in Your grace and longsufferring! In Jesus Name, Amen

Oh hear this my friend, today if you will, you too can know this Jesus whom we highly extoll and magnify. You too can have the life of Christ that Paul spoke of and that I and millions of others have secured through faith in the Son of God who died to give His life to you as a substitution in exchange for your your currently sinful life. Through a simple confession of faith in Him and a recognition of your unclean life in His presence, and a desire for His pure life in you, it can happen, Rom. 10:9-10. What is it that hinders you from receiving so great a gift?

Trust Him today! As He tugs at your heart do not resist, just say "Yes" to Him, and you too will be able to enjoy the precious life of love that all true believers bathe themselves in daily!

God Blesss

25 Reasons to Believe - In Jesus FREE EBOOK

FREE EBOOK click to download - When book comes up click down arrow on Upper Right to save a copy . A while back the Barna Group released a report titled, "Six Reasons Young Christians Leave Church." 1  Under reason two, " Teens’ and twenty-somethings’ experience of Christianity is shallow" they write:  "A second reason that young people depart church as young adults is that something is lacking in their experience of church. One-third said “church is boring” (31%). One-quarter of these young adults said that “faith is not relevant to my career or interests” (24%) or that “the Bible is not taught clearly or often enough” (23%). Sadly, one-fifth of these young adults who attended a church as a teenager said that “God seems missing from my experience of church” (20%)."  If one takes a look at the modern church-scape I can see why. The gap between those pastors and teachers that are fired up about Jesus and those that do not preach all of th

Fornication - The Acceptable Sin?

In the Bible there are several sexual sins that are categorized under the term,"Sexual Immorality." Not the least of these is, "Fornication." However fornication has become an outdated, and in many places, the acceptable sin in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As a matter of fact, many do not even know what the term "fornication" means. Since the advent of the modern Bible translation, many have never heard of it. This article focuses on what the Scripture says about this out-of-control acceptable sin. Fornication is mentioned thirty-six times in the Bible (MT), thirty-two times in the New Testament. In almost all modern translations the word has been substituted with, "sexual immorality" and has come to mean any number of sexual sins. However, sin (missing the mark) is still sin and sin still separates a person from God. So why has this sin become so acceptable even in modern churches???? UPDATE : Here is a testimony of life

The Bride of Christ Has Made Herself Ready!!

The Bible teaches of an upcoming Wedding Day that the Church should be on cloud nine over!! Rev. 19:7-9 states: Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come , and His wife has made herself ready." And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!' " And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God." The passage above speaks of two distinct events, the Marriage of the Lamb and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Both of these events are reminiscent of the ancient Jewish wedding ceremony where the Bride would become betrothed to her Groom and he would go away to build her a home. In the meantime she would wait anxiously for his return with shouts from his wedding party of "The Bridegroom Comes!" When the shouts were he

Understanding Grace…without it no one can be saved!

Years ago as a pastor, I faced an issue concerning the topic of “Grace.” I had noticed some congregants who were taking Grace to the extreme and beginning to teach that since our sins were bought and paid for at the cross—all of them, past, present, and future—there was no need to strive against sin. Thanks to our Lord, this was noticed and the He quickly allowed it to be curbed. This heresy occasionally rears its head in Christian circles and indeed must be stopped before it becomes out-of-control. The good thing is that a proper understanding of Grace can arrest the heresy in its steps. Because this false perception thrives in loose living, many well-meaning Christians go completely to the opposite extreme and throw the Biblical teaching of “Grace” out altogether. That too is heresy. How should we approach it? Grace, as a doctrine, should always be presented in its entirety. By that I mean, a starting definition, followed by why it is important, and concluding with keeping it scri

Cardboard Signs and Saying Yes to God

Perhaps you have seen the story of "Daniel's Gloves". It has been floating around the internet since 2001 according to They also tell us the original author is Richard Ryan the assistant Pastor of a Church in Indiana.  I refer to this story—which you will find posted below mine—because of the effect that helping one in need can actually have on a believer’s life. One of the things I have done in the past is monitor just how many people there are who simply pass on by those who are holding a sign stating “Will work for food” or “Need Help for me and my children.” If you ask the hurting they will tell you there are literally hundreds and hundreds who just will not help. Truly it is a sad testimony that “one or a few bad apple(s) can spoil a whole bushel.” It is definitely something I also have observed. For some reason we either fear them, fear confrontation or fear being deceived. Whatever the reason, I often wonder how God feels about it. Just a fe
