Welcome again to this week's word for the week. Well this is the time of the year I try to be very brief as I realize so many other things are going on and there are things being prepared for. Nevertheless, there is never no time for God so let's get straight to the point this week. As we prepare for the Christmas Day celebration let me ask you a few questions for you to ponder this week as you celebrate.
What does the birth of Jesus really mean to you? I'm not talking about you simply giving an answer based on what the Bible says. I mean what does it mean to you? Jesus asked Peter who men said He was and then He asked Peter who did he say He was. This is one of those questions. What does His birth mean to you? Why do you ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. There is a straight and narrow road that leads to God. There is a wide open road that leads to destruction. You have a choice on which road you decide to choose. Both of those roads will definitely lead you somewhere but either place is very opposite of the other. One will lead you to torment and the other will lead you to eternal life. Again, you get to decide which road you take but it’s important to realize that in life those are really the only roads to choose from. Let’s go further.
Let me use two different illustrations in order to make the point this week. I live in Savannah, GA. If you were to look at a map of the city you will find that I-77 is nowhere to be ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. There is something urgent I need to say this week but it's not simply for this week. This is something you need to not only give some thought but it's also something you need to do everything you can to include in the rest of your life. It's called taking time to listen to God. Let's cut through the chase this week and get straight to the heart of the matter.
There are many people who say God said this or God said that. If you ask people if they prayed they will tell you yes. If you ask them did the hear the voice of God speak they will tell you yes. If you ask them what did God say you will find out that "He said" just what they were looking to hear. The reality...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. There is one word that the Lord just put in my spirit to share with you all this week. That word is sacrifice. If you're going to see the true blessings of God in your life you're going to have to be willing to sacrifice. Sacrifice is not always about what you're willing to give up. It's also what you're willing to take on. Let's go further here.
When one hears the word sacrifice the first thing that comes to mind is what they need to give up. You can sacrifice in a multitude of ways. The truth is what you may need to sacrifice will vary depending on what you're doing. One moment you may need to give up some free time in order to spend more time with God. ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. For you to move forward in God will take some toughness on your part. You will have to be tough when it comes to the truth. Jesus said we will know the truth and it is the truth that shall set us free. Knowing the truth about something is truly the beginning of being free from what binds us and holds us hostage in the spiritual sense. Let's go further.
This week for those of us from the United States is Thanksgiving. The following day is known as Black Friday which is the "first day" of the Christmas shopping season. It is a time when most people are upbeat and generally excited. People who normally may not smile do so at this time of the year. People sit down for ...
