Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Something really just hit me as I was winding down for the night. For the past few weeks I keep hearing God speak the phrase "I'm not what I used to" and thought I understood what He was saying. Then tonight He really spoke and made it all clear and I was led to share with you this week.
We've all heard that phrase said in many ways but it still comes down to the same thing. You're not what you used to be because if any man be in Christ then he is a new creature. He's not the same not because of himself but because of Who he is in. Simple enough but then God showed me what the real hindrance is in people truly moving forward so let's get into it this week.

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. There are two stories in the Bible that I want to reference this week. One is in Joshua chapter 7 and it deals with Achan. The other is in Acts chapter 5 and it deals with Ananias and his wife Sapphira. I'm not going to talk about those two stories but rather reference them and use them as a backdrop to make better sense of this week's word.
Both of those stories deal with the same underlying point. Both of them did something that they attempted to hide from God. When we read those two stories we read them with shock. Especially when you consider all of the circumstances and the fact that what we see in both cases was very foolish. So, often we read the Bible and while we may ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. What can separate us from the love of God? That sounds like a question that is easy to answer. Many of you reading this will say nothing can do such a thing. A few others will inwardly know exactly what can and that question may not feel good to hear. However, before you tune out or quit reading this week's word I want to ask you to hang in there with me this week.
The word of God has a purpose. Nothing is written just because. Rather the word is reminding us of something, pointing us in the right direction, giving us hope, or a multitude of other things it does you can be sure the word of God has purpose. It is easy to say nothing can take you away from God when you haven't been ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. This week I want to talk to some real people in Christ. The ones who truly want to grow and want to know what it takes to get there. The ones who are really asking God what else do they need to let go of in order to have more of Him. The ones who are not looking for things for them but rather they are seeking after the things that please God.
Now let's put this in perspective right out the gate. Every Sunday across the globe there are millions of "people" that attend church. The question is not how many millions attend. The question is how many of those "people" that attend are really children of God? The church doors are open for anyone to attend. The doors of ...
