pass it on

There is a chorus that we used to sing in our youth meetings that said, “It only takes a spark to get a fire going and soon all those around can warm up to it’s glowing, that’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it, you spread his love to everyone, you want to pass it on.”You know, when you find something worth sharing, something very valuable and helpful, you want to more

the in crowd

There is a group of people that is known as the “in crowd”. This group is the one that everyone is supposed to want to be like. They have the nicest cars, the most expensive home, and they are always invited to, and are the life of, every party.I have known people who would do just about anything to get to be a part of the in crowd. They would turn their backs on more

great expectations

It is so easy in this busy and worrisome world to get our eyes on our problems and the daily interferences that are always nagging at us. There are endless bills to pay, demanding schedules to keep, constant problems arising at home, at work, with family and friends. Then, all of a sudden there comes some real “biggy”; a layoff, a sickness or even a death in the family and we begin to wonder more

fellowship is sweet

Written By: Mechele McMichael

Sometimes, we enjoy getting away for a few days. But, as they say it's always good to come home. It is good to get back to our kids, to our family and to our church. I have always known how blessed we are as a church body. It is a reminder to me that the fellowship of the saints is a precious blessing. Somehow when you're away and come back you feel refreshed and more

believe god

The life story of Abraham is a real example of faith, hope and trust. I would like to recommend the reading of the whole story of this man of faith’s life to you. It is so encouraging to me in my own life to see how he lived and trusted God in so many of life’s situations, good times and hard times alike. Just like with us today, sometimes it was easy to trust more

it’s all about relationship

In this life, we all know what it means to be related to someone. We can understand this because we have all lived in relationships of some kind or other all of our lives.The relationship that develops between people with common interests results in a relationship of friends that creates a very strong bond. The relationship that grows between a young man and a young lady can grow into a unique relationship called husband more

breaking curses

There is a very definite similarity in family traits that can be seen from generation to generation. Skin type, texture and tone, hair and eye color, distinct facial features are all things that get passed from parent to child. There is a unique blending of these features as each new generation receives dominant genes from both mother and father to create a new and unique individual. This passing on of family traits has gone more

the power of his presence

This verse picks up in the middle of a very significant conversation between God and Moses. To catch up on what is going on, the Children of Israel had just made the golden calf. God had told them that He would give them the land as He had promised, but that He would not go with them into the land. Moses had protested and God said that He would go with them. Moses went more

the secret of contentment

If you ask most people today what they think is the key to living a contented life, most of them would say that contentment comes from accomplishing goals in business, or in attaining great wealth. Perhaps others would say that contentment comes from having good social standing or from having a loving family. All of these are certainly things that we would all like to have and even strive for. There is nothing inherently more

the name above all names

There is a lot to be said about a person’s name. People who own their own businesses spend lots of time, energy and even money to make their name known and well thought of. To them, a good name means more business and therefore more money.Most people are proud of their name and like to hear it said by others. They like to have a good name and don’t want anyone else slandering it. more
