The gospel is a rhythm of give and take not in the doctrine of the bible but the application of it. See everybody sees scripture a little different than me. Their viewpoint of what various scriptures mean and their understanding of it may not work for me. If they want to play around with Christian doctrine then I can’t be in agreement but what about peripheral issues. How about church on Saturday or Sunday? This issue has been...
1 Peter 1:15-16
15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”
1 Peter 2:9-10
9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

7 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us clea...
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
From time to time there are difficulties and troubles we will face in our lives. Such a time as now and facing times of trouble is never easy or it wouldn’t be called trouble. This will test your faith and reveal to you what e...
The Bible warns us saying, “But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the grace of the Lord (Isaiah 26:10).
3 “Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it. 5 Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have...
Philippians 3 NKJV
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
A Bridge has many definitions; for the sake of our direction we will use only one. The description we are interested in is that “A Bridge is a pathway” that connects two or more items. In our story, these bridges are relationships in our lives that connect us to each other. We build bridges made of common interests, work situations, family, faith and of course love. There are others but these will do for our needs.
When Jesus went to the cross, He went for all of our sins, not just the past ones. Walking in failure is much better than not walking at all. There is a destiny inside you and it may take your entire life to be released. You must come to the conclusion you are not an accident of human nature but a player in the plan of God destined to some worthwhile purpose whose time has or has not yet come.

Gideon was part of the Israelites lead out of Egypt.
Gideon was amazing. He pleased God by acting on God’s Word: people call this Faith. God sent an angel to talk to Gideon one day while he was separating wheat; this process took place in a shallow hole in the ground called a winepress. He hid his whole family in this place. The reason Gideon was hiding, there were many enemies near his home. They were the Midi...
Something we have just recently learned is the definition of "Shalom." And as it turns out we never understood it correctly at all. Here is the actual definition as revealed by the Hebrew pictograph: “The authority of God breaks the yoke that binds us to Chaos." This is the real definition of Shalom.
Shalom which is tied to peace is an essential part of having a peaceful life and walking in the power of God. In the word itself...
