Ambassadors of Christ

thWe are living in a time of great change in America.  There has been a steady decline in our culture and in our biblical doctrines.  Christian psychology has entered the Church of Jesus Christ and done much damage to the attitudes of Christian women.  Our culture has changed so dramatically since the 1940’s that you wouldn’t even know it was the same culture and people.  Both men and women have been affected by these changes.

Courtesy, politeness and tact have seemed to have gone out the window.  Where is chivalry, true bravery, honor, integrity, truthfulness to our own hurt, and self denial Continue reading

Graduation Day

Photo welcoming to heavenI am reminded of the fact that we lost our son in this same month, April, 2004 and it was such a tragic loss to our family.  My own son was taken before I was.  How was I going to respond to this?  How was I to think with the mind of Christ and respond in a way that would be pleasing to the Lord?  How do I get a hold of the Comforter (the Holy Spirit) to comfort me in my greatest hour of need?

It seems that most everyone is afraid to die, even a few Christians.  People are afraid because of the uncertainty of where they are really going, will they live again after Continue reading

A Gentle & Quiet Spirit

aI noticed as I was reading the Word in I Peter 3:4 that it tells us women to not only make our adornment merely outwardly, but rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sign of God.  I want to be to very Continue reading

Loving God

bible_worship1It is my greatest desire in life to inspire you to really love with all your heart and have a complete devotion to God.  Such a desire in us that we would all fall in love with Him and Jesus and the Holy Spirit, as the most precious of all the ones we love and want to please.  That we would be true daughters and sons and act like it, not only for our sake, but also in order to make Them happy, and bring Them pleasure, and Continue reading

Yielding Our Rights

Yielding to God

Anger is opposite of meekness.  We want meekness to be a predominant characteristic in our nature, rather than anger.  The Bible puts great importance on being meek.  The Bible states, that the meek will have good judgment because, “The meek will He guide in judgment: the meek he will teach his ways” (Ps 25:9).  “The meek will inherit the earth” (Ps 37:11).  The meek will respond to the gospel, “He came to preach good tiding to the meek” (Isaiah 61:1).  The meek will have special joy: “The meek shall increase their joy” (Isaiah 29:19).  The meek will understand Continue reading

Adding to Our Faith: Virtue

awesome-power-of-faith2_t 2 Peter 1:5-11: Expounds upon the importance of adding to your faith certain attributes that we should develop in order to become overcoming Christians.  The Bible says, the purpose of adding these attributes is so that we will not be useless, unfruitful, blind, short-sighted, and fall back into former sins.  We need these virtues added to our faith in order to make our calling and election sure, never stumbling.

This article describes virtue in some detail so that we may know that we have it operating in our own lives.  We are to add these certain qualities in 2 Peter 1:5-11 diligently; which Continue reading
