UNITY Unity is an ideal with universal appeal. In a world full of stark contrasts, the concept of oneness often takes root and motivates individuals to pursue a perceived utopia. While the concept is noble, the motivation is often selfish and the results a catastrophe. We must remember that the world was created with perfect balance, perfect unity. Mankind sacrificed a perfect relationship with God in favor of self-interest. Adam and Eve traded perfection for pain. Soon thereafter the first…

WHY THERE ARE NO MEN IN YOUR CONGREGATION – PART 2 The Message In the religious world today what do you hear constantly? God is love, God is forgiveness, God is comfort. All very much true, but God is also power. He is judge, jury, and executioner. Churches today seem to emphasize the Lord’s softer qualities rather than his harsher ones. We, as humans, don’t like hearing about the suffering we will have to go through as Christians, along with…

WHY THERE ARE NO MEN IN YOUR CONGREGATION – PART 1 In the beginning God created a man, Adam. Throughout the Old Testament men reigned as patriarchs, judges, prophets, and kings. Then Jesus came to Earth as a man and recruited 12 other men as his disciples to walk with Him and to carry on His work after He was gone.

VICTORY Everyone loves the feeling of elation that comes with winning. This is especially true when the victor comes from a disadvantage to pull off the win.

For Who is our Hope…? As one reads Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, his love, care, and concern for this group of Christians was quite apparent. “…constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father. (1 Thessalonians 1:3)” Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy shared the greatest worldly connection possible with the Thessalonians: faith, love and hope in Jesus. When Paul…

Weakness Weakness is an unfavorable attribute regardless of one’s perspective. Peace between nations often lies in the perception of military strength and the emotional fortitude of a nation’s leadership.

This scenario has played out many times since the beginning of time.  Citizens of fallen nations became servants of the oppressor. Opportunity to escape is rare. Exploitation of weakness…

Wealth King Solomon was blessed with great wealth. This benefit was bestowed upon him because of his humble request for wisdom rather than for fame or fortune. “And God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life-but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king-…

Anchor of the Soul One of the great and comforting images presented in the book of Hebrews is Jesus Christ as our great high priest ever standing in the presence of Almighty God (Heb. 4-7). That image alone is more than I can completely understand, but the fact He is interceding for you, and I is absolutely awesome. Under the Law of Moses, the Levitical high priest had the privilege and great responsibility of interceding for the nation of Israel.…
