Old vs New Nature

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.  And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.  Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander …

Keep Your Heart

Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.  Let your eyes look straight ahead,And your eyelids look right before you.  Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.  Do not turn to the right …

Love in Action

In John 13:2-17 Jesus washed twelve pairs of dirty feet. Why? He wanted to teach the disciples about serving those whom you love. Words of love are meaningless without actions to accompany them.

Keep the Spark Alive

Remember those times when you and he were dating how you used to be on the phone for hours?  You never seemed to run out of conversation.  There were no awkward moments.   The conversation just flowed.  And when you were together, the time just seemed to fly because you were having so much fun? …

Faith that Works

James 2:14-17 If a church member were to come to you for help, what would you do?  Would you say to him or her, "Don't worry, God will provide"?  What if God sent that person to you? James is telling us that when people come to us for help, we ought to do what we …

Compassion in time of Devastation
