Welcome again to this week's word for the week. We're going to hit the ground running this week and I'm going to challenge you to think about something from a very different perspective. I want you to either look in a mirror or act like you're looking in one. Now get a real good snapshot of what you look like and consider a few things as we go along this week.
The bible says what man beholding or seeing himself in a mirror forgets what manner of man he is. In other words, nobody forgets what they look like in the natural sense. The bible also says a tree is known by its fruit. When you look at a fruit tree there should never be any doubt what kind of tree you're looking at. I've never known anyone to mistake an ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Life as a saved person is really something special and unique. We go through good times and bad times. We experience highs and lows. We have moments that make us smile and other moments that make us cry. We have days that we feel great and then we have days that make us look forward to another day. Yet, the bible tells us that all things work for good for them that love the Lord. What a powerful truth and perspective.
At our church we are always dealing with the need to be balanced. By that we simply mean that you have to know how to live for Christ and yet still function in this world. Think about a few quick points. People work everyday and yet must pray everyday. People face troubles ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. I want to jump straight into the topic for this week. All of us get to a point once we've been saved for a while where we look forward to what God has in store. Over time He does so many things for you until you actually start to expect to see Him move in your life and on your behalf. But here's a tough question. Are you ready for what God has in store?
Think about what I'm saying this week and it will bless you. There is no way to grow without change. When I'm clear on something God has in store for me the very next thing I begin to do is to search me. I look to see what areas are there in my life that will actually hinder what God has or even outright stop it. I do more ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Well this year is moving along pretty fast already. If there's one thing you've probably noticed by now it is that time doesn't stop moving. Along the way we quickly realize that tests and trials continue to come our way. Celebrating a new year doesn't stop us from having to still fight the good fight of faith.
With that being said, I can get to the topic for this week. I have two words for you. Stay guarded. Those two words are important in your life. They mean something very powerful and they can keep you from falling. There is nothing wrong with being joyful. There is nothing wrong with being thankful. There is nothing wrong with celebrating what God has done. There is ...
