the labor of love

Love is a very powerful force. It will cause one to sacrifice the comfort and convenience of this life for another. Sometimes this powerful force will even cause one to die for another. It is hard to comprehend and grasp the full ability of love or to measure the extremes that it will go to for the one upon whom it is bestowed.The greatest picture of pure unhindered love is found in the verse more

following jesus

God not only commands us to be imitators of Christ, but also gives us the ability to do just that. God will never instruct us to do something without giving us the ability to do what He has called us to do. In fact, the Bible says that it is God who is working in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure and will. He has put within each of more

digging in

I am reminded of stories that I have heard and movies that I have seen where the soldiers were preparing for an attack. They would dig trenches and foxholes to get into so that when the attack of the enemy forces came, they would have some cover and protection. They were said to be “digging in.”I believe that we as Christians are encouraged by this scripture to dig in to God’s power and provision more

showing god’s love

You have probably heard the familiar saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. It is not hard to understand what this means. We all know that it is much easier to comprehend something when you can actually see it instead of having to be told about it.In the case of God’s love, He didn’t just say that He loved us, He showed His love.

glass houses

Living in a glass house could be dangerous, as we all know, those living in glass houses should never start a stone throwing battle. The results could be very cutting. There is also another thing to consider if you live in a glass house. Privacy would be a hard commodity to come by, any one at any time could pass by and see all that was going on inside.What has this got to do more

first things first

This world is full of many evils and injustices. It is almost a thing of the past to be able to really feel safe, apart from the divine protection that we have from God., On a normal day, if you watch the news, you will see that there have been robberies, murders, rapes, bombings and the like all across our land. In the natural, things look hopeless. These and all the other terrible things 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

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

lord you are more than enough for me

Written By: Mechele McMichael

The song, "One Day", by Reuban Morgan on one of the Hillsong CD's expresses to us through praise and worship the place where we should all desire to be. The words say:More than I could ever hope or dream of, you have poured your favor on me. One Day in the house of God is better than a thousand days in the world. So Blessed, I can't contain it, so much, I've got to more

led by the spirit

What a wonderful privilege it is to be able to become a Christian. Sometimes I think people have the wrong connotation of what that means though. To some, being a Christian means that you have to act a certain way, and have to stop doing all the things that you used to do. To them it means that you have no fun in life anymore. It is like the message of the gospel is more
