He is Risen!

Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has […]

Whosoever Will May Come

Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. (Matthew 27:50-51) When considering the events that surround Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, the tearing of the veil […]

Maintaining a Positive Attitude

“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy. For you bless the godly, O LORD; you surround them with your shield of love.” (Psalm 5:11-12) While there are many things Christians need, […]

Intimate Communion With God

But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; in fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. (Psalm 5:7) Worship is a level of communion with God that is even more intimate than prayer. Worship speaks of the tender expression of “kissing towards,” or perhaps […]

The Great Preventative

“For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, nor shall evil dwell with You. The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.” (Psalms 5:4-6) David knew that prayer would assist him […]

Starting Each Day in God’s Presence

“Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.” (Psalms 5:1-3) […]

A Prized Resource

He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path. Proverbs 2:8-9 Every promise of God is predicated on meeting a condition or requirement. Each condition or requirement will always demand that you make a choice. We are told of […]

Pursuing Wisdom

Wisdom is the principle thing; therefore get wisdom. Proverbs 4:7 Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, said that the most important thing you could pursue in life was the wisdom of God. Wisdom will unite God, Who is the source of all knowledge and understanding, with our daily living. We must make the choice […]

Making Great Choices

“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19). You are a product of the choices you make. You exercise your right of choice in every arena of your […]

A Contrite Heart

“For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart-these, O God, you will not despise” (Psalm 51:16-17). In the Old Testament sacrificial system of worship, brokenness through death was physically required […]
