Words are a fountain of Grace, Hope, Peace, Faith, and Love

James 1:26 (KJV) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. There are things in life that defines who we are. There are behaviors that betrays our best intentions. There are actions that conveys contradictory messages about our true nature. So, it is imperative that we are careful as to how we present ourselves. Words are defining of our innermost thoughts or rather they…

God is a Truthful Communicator.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Ignorance gives room for excuses. When people tend not to know, then expectations are minimal because when we don’t know it is presumed that we will not do the right thing. However, when we have come to the knowledge and we continue to act ignorantly,…

Love As Christ Loves

1 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV) And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. It is not a surprise that God placed the greatest value on Love. Because love is not only the nature of God but it is the very essence of God. He is Love and all He does stems from Love. His actions toward you are based on Love. The sacrifice of Jesus is an act of Love. Paul was addressing a church…

Meekness & Humility Leads to Fruitfulness

Philippians 2:3 (KJV) Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Authenticity is the key to genuineness. Impressiveness in any form of it leads to compromise. We live in a world where people are not comfortable in who they are and with what they have. We see its impact on every aspect of life. Every outlet of information seems to push the idea that you are to have a…

True Love is Actionable

1 John 3:18 (KJV) My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. I love you, I truly care for you. Words we truly desire to hear and often when spoken to us coveys the deepest emotions that someone has towards you. In as much as love or agape in the context here is more than an emotional disposition toward another person, agape conveys the highest good, intentions, actions, commitment, sacrifice,…

We are His Masterpiece

Ephesians 2:10 (KJV) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Design determines purposeful, and purpose determines utilization. We all crave to hold in our hands the masterpiece of artwork. We desire to have in our collections, such masterpieces of Arts, such as those of Michael Angelo and the likes. We pride in such, those who are into electronic devices, cars, cultural artifacts, watches, clothing and…

Put on the whole Armor of God

Ephesians 6:11 (KJV) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. It is an undeniable truth that we have an adversary whose intention is to hinder, accuse, tempt, and work against all that is of God in our lives. We are engaged in spiritual warfare between good and evil and between light and darkness. We must not confuse ourselves by denying or thinking that there is no entity called…

Knowing God’s Will For You

Psalm 143:10 (KJV) Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. The psalmist was a man who understood the benefits of knowing the “will of God.” He sought God with everything in him. The quest of his life was to know the “ways of God.” What we spend our time and energy on demonstrates where our values are and what our passion is. So to be frank, no…

With God all things are possible

Matthew 19:26 (KJV) But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Getting things done is one of the essential characteristics of an achiever. We love people who get things done. Those who are goal-getters, we hire them as employees and want to have them as friends or serve on our board. As much as this quality is an admirable one, we must recognize that in life there are things…

You can trust the promises of God

Isaiah 43:19 (KJV)  Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Promises do strengthen our hearts. However, it depends on who made it. Promises are anchors of our faith and they strengthen our resolve to keep pushing even when life is difficult and challenging. When we receive a promise, we are encouraged because by it we see a…

God will perform His Words and Promises

Philippians 1:6 (KJV) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: In life, one thing we all seek in our relationships is consistency, commitment, and faithfulness. We do so because we desire to know that those whom we have committed ourselves to and have opened ourselves to have the ability and capacity to honor such trust that we have bestowed upon them. Furthermore, we…

Rejoicing in True Worship

Psalm 2:11 (KJV) Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Two outcomes in life are determined or generated by approach. The first is the response. And secondly, it determines Acceptance. It is then not a mistake that the Bible speaks clearly how we out to approach God and how we ought to serve God. We are not slaves to God, we are His children and He is both our God and Father. And as such we are instructed to serve…
