Church and State or Church and God?

“The Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready”  Revelation 19:7  ESV   It’s always been about the groom – Jesus. Everything else is subservient to that. He died so that one day He could present His bride (the Church) to His Father in heaven.   Most are aware that ever since […]

“What is Your Default Setting”?

  When a car is in neutral, it can drift anywhere, but can’t really go to a destination until you put it in drive.   I believe that many Christians today are living their lives in a default of neutral position. They drift here and there, but are not really going anywhere. Because many […]

When is the last time you leapt for joy?

When is the last time you leapt for joy? And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit Luke 1:41 (ESV) When Elizabeth heard the greeting, she felt the baby kick. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:41 (GW) […]

From Survival to Significance

For a long time, I have believed that one of satan’s chief strategies is to reduce our lives to mere survival. Survival means living from day to day, just to be able to “make it” for the next day without any real goal or meaning. Each day becomes a meaningless grind of tedious effort […]
