A Lesson On True Love

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8  As we approach Valentine’s Day on February 14th, it’s difficult to enter a store without walking past aisles of cards, candies, balloons, and stuffed animals – all professing the same thing, love, or at least a form of it. Songs from every era tell us things like ‘love is all you... Read more >>

The World Will KNOW in the Love we SHOW

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 3:34-35 Love is often underestimated; wrongly defined by what we have in mind, what we have experienced in supposed earthly love. Love is not merely an emotion, but it should set us in motion. Not fueled by earthly desires but eternal destinies that are at stake. LOVE, real love, is designed and defined by God alone. Love... Read more >>

Praying For A Culture of Life in America

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6 From the beginning of our nation, our founders prayed, sought and fought for a culture that embodied, embraced, and encouraged LIFE. In our Declaration of Independence, we all agree as citizens of the United States, that “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  These founding sentiments were focused on the LIFE that can only be ‘endowed by their Creator,’...

Merry Christmas 2020

LUKE 2 A Savior, Who is Christ the Lord Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. 2This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all the people were on their way to register for the census, each to his own city.4 Now Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, 5 in order to register along with Mary, who was betrothed to him, and was pregnant. 6 While they were there, the time came for her to...

Gifts From Heaven

On that evening, as shepherds sat watch in their fields, keeping an eye and ear on their flocks, they received the most glorious message. Their eyes and ears could hardly comprehend what was happening. The sight and sound of the angels as the message that the Savior, the Messiah, the Lord had come! Imagine the joy and awe that must have filled them from head to toe as they received this, “Good News” and quickly responding to the invitation to go and see their Lord. Emmanuel! The LORD came down to dwell with His creation. Luke 2:8-11 And there were... Read more >>
