Breathing Out and Breathing In


The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

—Proverbs 8:13

Our attachment to the Person of Christ must exclude all that is contrary to Christ. These are the days when we are trying to be 100 percent positive. But the Scripture says of Jesus, “Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness” (Psalm 45:7)….If He had to hate in order to love, so do you and I.

To be 100 percent positive would be as fatal as to inhale steadily all your life without exhaling. You can’t do that….

When the Church inhales the Holy Spirit she must exhale everything that is contrary to Him.

I don’t believe any man can love until he’s able to hate….I don’t think he can love righteousness unless he hates sin; for the Scripture leaves us with the belief that in…

A Good Man


By grace you have been saved, through faith—and that is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8

“Jerry was a good man,” the pastor said at Jerald Stevens’ memorial service. “He loved his family. He was faithful to his wife. He served his country in the armed services. He was an excellent dad and grandfather. He was a great friend.”

But then the pastor went on to tell the friends and family gathered that Jerry’s good life and good deeds were not enough to assure him a place in heaven. And that Jerry himself would have been the first to tell them that!

Jerry believed these words from the Bible: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) and “the wages of sin is death” (6:23). Jerry’s final and eternal destination in life’s journey was not determined by whether he lived…

VIDEO Who God Is


And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments.” Daniel 9:4

We’ve seen it in many comedic movies: A frustrated person is seeking information from a government agency only to be told numerous times that he is in the wrong office. “I don’t handle that complaint. You need the folks on the fourth floor”—the search for answers often seems never ending. Such a scene illustrates a theological point: It’s not enough to make a sincere request in prayer. It is more important to pray to the right Person, the One who actually has the power and authority to answer the prayer.

When Daniel began praying about the release of God’s people from captivity in Babylon, he began his prayer with an acknowledgement…

Do your part: Social distance at 6 feet


OOPS! At least it makes you feel like you are doing something……

” Instead, Locwin said coronavirus infects people through the sharing of aerosolized droplet particles from people in close quarters inhaling and exhaling the same air, talking, coughing and sneezing, within which he said sneezed particles can be detected upwards of 27 feet away, traveling at 200 mph. He said with these biological realities, the recommended social distancing threshold of six feet of space between people in public would be more effective if it was 10 or more feet and that the ban on gatherings of 10 or more is critical to reduce transmission.

“It’s possible for particles to persist in the air for minutes,” Locwin said. “This is what makes respiratory transmission so pernicious.”
