Who is our neighbor?

It is written, “After careful consideration, Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho when he fell into the hands of bandits.

Standing Firm

My wife and I often speak with one another about how easy the world can sneak up in our lives. When you turn on a television episode, there is nudity and sexually explicit language on almost every show. When you change the channel, there is someone else committing adultery or other worldly behaviors. However, when … Continue reading Standing Firm

How to get the fullness of joy?

While listening to one of my favorite Christian songs, “Joy” by for King and Country, I started to think about the fullness of joy and where it comes from. The reasoning behind this was because I started to think about how many Christians that I have met while traveling during these past few years had … Continue reading How to get the fullness of joy?

Having the right mindset

It is written, “No one who is born of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, because God’s seed [His principle of life, the essence of His righteous character] remains [permanently] in him [who is born again—who is reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose]; and he [who is born again] … Continue reading Having the right mindset

Run from it run!

Today’s lesson is about running from sin. Often, I have heard from people that they had too much temptation to sin that they had no other choice but to sin. Whether their sin was a struggle with adultery, idolatry, or other more explicit sins, it does not matter. Next time you are feeling tempted to … Continue reading Run from it run!

Don’t forget to lift your veil!

For today’s devotional, I wanted to remind my readers that we are under the new covenant. What I mean is simple, being under Christ in the new covenant means that we are no longer to be hidden under the veil of the Old Testament. We are no longer under “The Law” because Christ fulfilled it. … Continue reading Don’t forget to lift your veil!

A Lesson on Character

It is written, "Do not be deceived: 'Bad company corrupts good morals.' Be sober-minded [be sensible, wake up from your spiritual stupor] as you ought, and stop sinning; for some [of you] have no knowledge of God [you are disgracefully ignorant of Him, and ignore His truths]. I say this to your shame,"(1 Corinthians 15:33-34, … Continue reading A Lesson on Character

A proper support team

Thinking back over my life, I have fallen short many times. To be honest, I think everyone reading this could say the same. However, the one thing that has kept me striving to be a better husband, father, and Christian is the love of my support team. This team is my wife, my friends, and … Continue reading A proper support team
