What Kind of Wages are You Working For?

For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end…

I Am Just a Dot

On the infinite line of eternity, there are many dots; specks of dust that move, breathe, and can even see, think, and feel… Those dots are humankind. We are on this infinite line for a moment and then our stories end. But when one story ends, another begins. It is a seemingly endless cycle of…

And Such Were Some of You

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) The sins just listed are very…

Christian Resolutions

At the start of every new year, you will hear a lot of talk about resolutions. Even though people have been eating trash and not working out for the whole year previous, they feel like January 1 is a good excuse to turn it all around… But often, their resolutions don’t last. Within a month,…

God With Us?

Emmanuel is one of the names of Jesus Christ. It means, “God with us.” “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel,” which being interpreted is, “God with us.” (Matthew 1:23) God is with us, today and always, but do we live like…

When You Lose Your Rock

  Emptiness, confusion, denial, sorrow, anger, brokenness… These are all emotions felt by those who have lost more than they ever thought they could. I have seen daughters and sons lose their dads and moms, wives and husbands lose their spouses, mothers and fathers lose their mothers and fathers. The frailty of life is revealed…

Will You be Ready for the Wedding?

Let us be glad and rejoice and give honor to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto…

The Woman

This coming Sunday, I will be playing a part in the Christmas play at my church. My character has no name, she is simply called, Woman. She comforts children, sings, talks with angels, rejoices over a baby boy and over the truth that the boy is God in the flesh, and cries at the revelation…

I Know Who Holds the Future

Have you ever woken up with a feeling of uncertainty or anxiety sitting in the pit of your stomach like some bad food from the night before? I certainly have (and more recently than I would have liked). This Tuesday, I was going through this inner struggle. Though I professed that I trusted the Lord…

How to Prevent Divorce

Just as a short disclaimer, I have to say that, in and of myself, I am not qualified to write this. Never have I been married or made vows to another human being. There are sins in my past that would hint toward a tendency of unfaithfulness and discontent, but the sins of the past…
