Unmoved.

Psalm 55:21-22 “His speech was smooth as butter, yet war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords. Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Brethren, strife and betrayal may come as close as the […]

Stubborn sailors?

Acts 27:20 “When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned.” Brethren, as Paul was sailing by guard to appeal to Cesar the Gospel, a tempest rose that would’ve cost the 76 on board there lives. But that […]

Tongue of a ready Scribe

Psalm 45:1 “My heart overflows with a pleasing theme; I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.” Brethren, this verse is so poetic to me. I love it’s imagery. But what would you expect from God’s Word!? When we pray today, remember that words are power. […]

Obedience to the Spirit

Acts 8:30-31 “So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ And he said, ‘How can I, unless someone guides me?’ And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.” Amen!

Why are you in Church?

Acts 8:13 “Even Simon himself believed, and after being baptized he continued with Philip. And seeing signs and great miracles performed, he was amazed.” Brethren, it is very possible for people to make declarations of believing in Jesus Christ, but having no true saving faith in Him. Simon was a magician seeking the glory of […]

Wisdom of the Spirit.

Acts 6:10 “But they could not withstand the wisdom and the Spirit with which he was speaking.” Brethren, when Stephen was doing many signs and wonders among the people, the religious leaders sought to stop him, because Stephen was bringing many to see the power of God Himself, which would bring them to know Christ […]

Anointed for service.

Psalm 23:5 “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” Amen!
