A WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

June 17, 2019

I remember a service when one of our deacons shared his testimony prior to leading our intercessory prayer.  As part of his testimony, he led the congregation in the song “Falling in Love with Jesus”.  That song has always lifted my spirit; because of all of the relationships I have been blessed to have, the…

FATHER’S DAY – SPIRITUAL MATTERS

June 16, 2019

On this Father’s Day, we pause to give honor to God for faithful fathers. There are so many of our children who are void of a strong spiritual father. We know the statistics and hear them time and time again. However, we cannot overlook those spiritual fathers who pray and honor God by their faithfulness…

PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER

June 15, 2019

On many occasions, I have used our prayer line as a source of reference for these devotions.  I have repeatedly said on many occasions how blessed the prayer line has become in my own personal life.  Early in the morning, we turn our faces to God to give Him thanks and to acknowledge His goodness. …

LIVING BY THE SPIRIT

June 14, 2019

As I was doing this devotion, I God challenged me to write something that would have meaning for God’s people.  I have said on many occasions we cannot do anything without the Spirit. I would argue strongly, we have to live by the Spirit because the flesh is weak. I remember giving this advice in…

SHINE BRIGHTLY FOR CHRIST

June 13, 2019

What we do, ought to be done to the glory of God.  Far too often, we grumble and complain which takes away from our witness.  When we murmur and complain it is a true indication our lights are not shining, but rather we are walking in darkness.  We owe God so much; it’s a blessing…

There is a constant need for all of us to ask God for repentance.  No matter where we are in our Christian journey, we still miss the mark. Even with our best intentions, we fall short. We need to confess our sins of omission and commission to God and ask Him for his divine forgiveness. …

We are at the midpoint of 2019.  This is a good opportunity for us to reflect upon those resolutions we made at the beginning of the year.  Many of us made vows to the Lord that this was going to be a different year.  We vowed to be more sacrificial, more loving, and more forgiving.…

GET RID OF THE LOG IN YOUR EYE

June 10, 2019

I’m constantly asking God to examine me.  I do this, because I’m fully aware that I need to take inventory of my life.  I also need God to guide me so the deficiencies in my life may be clearly revealed to me.  I, like most people, can easily see defects in others, but have a…

PRAYING FOR OUR BROTHER AND SISTER TO BE SAVED

June 9, 2019

As we pray, we must always be mindful of our need to pray for those who are not yet saved.  We must be willing to recognize that somebody prayed for us; for, we have not always been saved.  Consequently, our prayers should be for others. When I think of the need to pray for others,…

TRUSTING IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

June 8, 2019

As believers, we should depend on the Holy Spirit for everything we do for the Lord. It does not matter how gifted we might be; without the power of the Holy Spirit we have no power.  Our trust must always be in the power of the Holy Spirit to lead to us, to guide us,…
