Ancient Words

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105). Is that how you think and live out your faith? Is God’s word a lamp to your feet and a light to your path? Is the word of God directing every step you take? I love God’s word. I Read more

You Are More

If you’ve accepted Jesus as your Savior and Lord AND expressed that faith by being baptized into Christ, you are a forgiven and saved child of God as you walk by faith. It’s no longer about where you have been but where you’re going. It’s not about what you’ve done but what Jesus is doing Read more

Broken Hallelujah

HALLELUJAH means to praise God. Some people go through life and never know the blessing we experience when we praise God and say HALLELUJAH to the Lord. Then there are others who have a beautiful relationship with Jesus and they love to say HALLELUJAH for all His blessings. When difficult times come it’s harder to Read more

Here I Am

I know we’re not supposed to applaud someone who disobeys God but I just love the disobedient guy in Mark 1:40-45. He is a leper who approaches Jesus, begging to be healed. Jesus reaches out and touches the man and heals him. Since Jesus does not want people following Him strictly for physical blessings He Read more

Only Grace

Mike’s Wednesday morning spiritual prescription is short, sweet and to the point. Read Luke 23:39-43 and then listen to the song entitled Only Grace by Matthew West. Luke 23:39-43 One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” But the other responded, and rebuking him, said, “Do you not Read more

One Way

There is only one way to have a salvation relationship with the Lord and that is through Jesus Christ. Only Jesus is qualified to be the holy, unblemished, perfect sacrifice to take away our sins. There is only one way to be saved – one way – through Jesus. In John 14:6 Jesus says, “I am Read more

An Easter Hallelujah

Even though Easter has come and gone the resurrection and its impact has not. Christians are mindful of the resurrection of Jesus every day as we look forward to our own resurrection and reception of our new body. We also remember the resurrection of Jesus in a special way 52 times each year as we Read more

Because He Lives

Throughout my teenage years and for most of my 20’s I lived full force in the world. If someone invited me to church I would sarcastically respond, “I’ll see you in church if the windows are clean.” I did manage to go to church one time a year on Christmas Eve and I thought I Read more

Because He Lives

Just in time for Easter: Don’t you just love the Christians in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia? Who? You know, the Christians Peter writes to in his 1st letter. They are Christians who are suffering. In fact, every chapter addresses suffering – specifically for their faith in Jesus. But even though this letter is soaking Read more

Become Who You

“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who Read more

Rise Up

Oh no – what am I going to do? I’m scared to death! I hope I make it through the day! This could kill me! I don’t know about you (actually I do 😊) but I am so sick and tired of Satan successfully tempting us to be afraid when we should have courageous faith Read more

The Core of My Addiction

I like the message of the song The Core of My Addiction by Fireflight so much that I decided to write another devotional about it. May the force be with you also to be greatly moved by the biblical message of this song. I am speaking of the force and the attraction of the love Read more

This Is My Father’s World

My biggest takeaway from our ongoing study of the book of Revelation is the sovereignty of God. God rules – He is in control – this is HIS world – He created it and He sits over the entire universe as Lord and King of heaven and earth. Then there is Psalm 46. It also Read more

My Last Amen

I recently read an article concerning the difference between taking action on urgent matters versus important matters. Tending to an urgent matter puts us in a reactive mode. It will be marked by a defensive, negative, and hurried mindset. On the other hand, addressing planned important tasks contributes to our long-term mission, values and goals. When we Read more

Here with Me

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life (Jn. 3:16). One of the major themes in the gospel of John is eternal life. I love John 17:3 when Jesus says, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only Read more
