What Has Mastered You?

Romans 6:12-14 (NIV) 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself…

Light?!?

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. John 8:12 When it comes to objects and the way they interact with light they are defined as being: Opaque, Translucent, or Transparent. An Opaque object allows no visible light to pass through…

Hope Floats!

Do you ever turn on the news, scroll through a social media site, or stop on a radio dial and quickly find yourself becoming ill or upset due to all of the pain, suffering, and destruction that seems to be going on all around us? I have actually found myself watching a lot less TV…

Are You A Good Dad?

         Why You Shouldn’t Say “Is There Anything I Can Do”          Over a year ago my wife was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Here we were young people in good health breaking into our 30’s. We had a beautiful, healthy 2 yr old daughter Lorelai and had just learned…

Our Love for Each Other!

John 13:35 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. All Christians at some point have heard the idea that we are to love one another, but how good are we at actually following through with this concept? Romans 12:9 says 9 Love must be sincere. Hate…

Church is for Hypocrites!

If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times, “I can’t stand that church, it’s so full of hypocrites!” Every time I hear someone utter that phrase regarding any church I simply want to reply, “Yep, you’re right!” Lets take a second and be honest with ourselves and admit that we are all…
