A Public Confession

by Suzanne D. Williams I just want to read a book. Reading makes better writers, they say. But writing has made me a horrible reader. I remember reading for the fun of it, losing my day amidst the pages of some novel . . . 200,000 words or more. Now, I can’t manage 1,000 without […]

Gems From Pastor Jim

by Jim Hughes Prov. 17:27 A truly wise person uses few words; a person with understanding is even-tempered. It’s hard to be wise isn’t it? We like to express our opinions. In a time in which self is promoted so heavily by the world, everyone wants to be heard. We want to know […]

A Glimpse of Heaven

by Parker J. Cole There was a YouTube video going around about a year or so ago. It showed an all Korean choir singing Richard Smallwood’s classic song, “Total Praise.” Largely attributed as part of the black gospel choir circuit, the buzz about how well this all Korean choir sounded had everyone viewing […]

We are prone to see the faults in people more than we do their good qualities. We magnify flaws more than we should. It is easy to see […]

Counted Worthy of Suffering

by Mary Hamilton The apostles left the Sanhedrin rejoicing that they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.  Acts 5:41 (NIV) Sounds like a good time, doesn’t it? The apostles walked out of the meeting place where the Sanhedrin sat in judgment and they were rejoicing. I imagine a lot of back-slapping, […]

Mouth Confession; Heart Belief

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”   (Romans 10:9). There must be confession with the mouth. Have I made it? Have I openly avowed my faith in Jesus […]

Storms of Life

by CJ Peterson When the storms of life hit, are you ready? These will undoubtedly hit, but are you prepared? Who is your Captain? Is He experienced? How much experience does your crew have? How many newbie sailors are on board with you (or is it you)? When you are sailing, there is […]

Gems From Pastor Jim

by Jim Hughes Prov. 17:3 Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the LORD tests the heart. If you want pure gold and silver they must survive the test of fire. Fire gets rid of all the impurities that may be found there. The end result of going through the fire […]
