Doubt: The Antithesis of Faith

Doubt, Faith, Freedom |

Matthew 14:31 “And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” James 1:6 “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” Doubt is the direct antithesis of faith. Everything faith is, doubt is not. As believers, we like to think that we have faith, […]

Love One Another

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Kindness, Love, Peace, Prayer, Purpose |

34 “So now I (Jesus) am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35 NLT Emojis have taken over common, everyday conversation. We text and use them to signify emotions instead of saying the words. However, there is one emoji that is taking even the advertising […]

Healing

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Love, Praise, Purpose, Worship |

Malachi 4:2 “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” Healing is not some once in a lifetime occurrence, nor is it limited to a select few. It is meant for everyone, especially the believer. In fact, Jesus called it “the children’s bread” (Matthew 15:21-26). However because of His compassion, Jesus did […]

Vision

Faith, Family, Freedom, Grow, Vision |

Proverbs 29;18 “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Habakkuk 2:2 “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” God’s greatness begins with a vision; a divine insight that reveals His plans for His people, or more specifically, for you. When God gives you a vision, write it down! Paper […]

Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control

Faith, Freedom, Goodness, Healing, Joy, Kindness, Love, Serve, Worship |

The Fruit of the Spirit gives the believer guidelines for his Christian walk. The Fruit guides us in our relationship with God, in our relationship with others, and, finally, in our relationship with ourselves, such as how we conduct ourselves and how we develop character. Faithfulness is a characteristic that is so lacking in today’s society. People don’t care if their “word is not their bond,” and this has created an atmosphere of mistrust and […]

Fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace

Christmas, Freedom, Joy, Love, Peace |

The Christmas season usually brings out the best in people. They are nicer, more giving, more tolerant. People are greeting people on the streets as if they have known them for years because during this season there are no strangers. All are united under glow of the seasonal lights and smiles. The music of Christmas and the colors of Christmas permeate an air of love and goodwill. There is nothing like it. Unfortunately, these feelings […]

The Relationship Between Faith and Praise

Faith, Freedom, Love, Praise, Purpose, Salvation, Worship |

Psalm 150:6 encourages the believer by stating “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!”(NKJV). This one mandate resounds in the sanctuaries of millions of churches throughout the world, but what is it? Praise is something that can be done corporately and individually, publicly or privately. Praise is the act or feeling of adoration toward God. You lavish your love and devotion to God and your dedication to His purposes. With your […]

The Relationship Between Faith and Prayer

Faith, Freedom, Grow, Prayer, Purpose |

The Christian faith provides many tools to help the believer go to the next level. An integral part of this system is prayer. Prayer is your way of communicating with God and asking for whatever you need in the name of Jesus. God is without a doubt omniscient; He knows everything about you, your fears, your family; but there is something about sharing your thoughts, concerns, and desires with God that reveals a spiritual intimacy […]

Four Characteristics of Faith-Based Leaders

Faith, Freedom, Grow, Leadership, Patience, Purpose |

The Bible records the history of its many faith-based leaders such as Abraham, David, Moses, and Joshua. These leaders sought God’s will in every exploit and battle; however, not only did they seek God but they also believed God and obeyed Him. Hebrews 11 lists these men and women of God whose faith promoted them in the spirit realm and gives a brief commentary on what it means to be a faith-based leader. Close To […]

Remembering Our Most Important Freedom

Freedom |

Every year in the United States, on the Fourth of July, we celebrate our country winning its freedom. Beautiful displays of fireworks are shot off in the cities, families come together in celebration, and everyone revels in the freedoms we possess. Freedoms such as our ability to speak any opinion or idea that does not injure another person. We have the freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and many more. The very first amendment […]
