    For such a time as this

    For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Esther 4:14 If Esther chose to sit back and become passive to Gods call, God would have moved on to someone else. His purpose will always come to pass, but her life’s purpose would have passed her by. We must be careful not to become so complacent in our walk with God, that we cannot hear His voice when He calls us…

    Sacrifice of Praise

    For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. Hebrews 10:14 An offering is a gift you present that is accepted or rejected. A sacrifice is something you surrender or give up for the sake of someone or something else. If you offer your neighbor a ride home, that is a gift. If you offer someone on the other side of town a ride home, that is a sacrifice – it’s costing you something. After the fall of man, sin offerings were required continually because man could not conquer sin by the law alone. Man needed a savior. Jesus sacrificed himself once for all mankind. Love is…

    Knock Knock

    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20 Now is the part where you say – who’s there? It’s annoying when you knock on a door and get no answer or speak to someone and get no response. It usually happens with those you love and can leave you feeling rejected. Jesus is knocking and is continually rejected. Sometimes after we invite Him in we fail to acknowledge His presence in our lives, or only allow him in some areas of our lives.…

    Demolition Day

    Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 I love home improvement shows. The idea of seeing old abandoned homes get torn down and made like new. When we come to Jesus, or return to Him, He does the exact same thing. He takes away the destruction that sin caused and creates a new man; or restores us to our original design. Transformation can be a difficult process, but it is necessary. We must break down old thought patterns, old habits, and wrongful teachings. If the foundation is not…

    Do you know what I know?

    Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? Mark 8:18 Do you know what I know? Christmas wasn’t that long ago, and the carols have pretty well died off on the radio, but I am still humming a couple of them. The message of Christmas really is for every day, not just one. I  got stuck on one song in particular as I hummed away called “Do you hear what I hear.” It is a common song during Christmas. When listening to this song I hear a profound message in it. In a nutshell it says, do you know Him? During Jesus’…
