Spiritual Life

Own Your Faith

The temptation is to take the easy path, but it leads to, well…destruction. Take the narrow path because only you fit on it. No one else can lead you.

Why We Need The Holy Spirit: Part 3

Jesus was always about love. But truth was never compromised in the meantime. This is the struggle that is plaguing our churches and, indeed, the world at large.

Hurt People

Wisdom and maturity are recognizing that those that hurt us, whether intended or not, need love, too. They need our prayers, our patience.

Proud To Be A Prisoner

For obvious reasons, the idea of having freedom is not ordinarily associated with being a prisoner. They stir up feelings that are polar opposites.

Burn the Ships

Loving people like Jesus loves us is not a light command. Loving people like Jesus loves us demands that we “burn the ships.”

A New American Identity: Part 1

After Juny’s ceremony, Holy Spirit presented the perfect comparison. There was the expectation for her to hold up the U.S. Constitution. But how ridiculous would it be if she spent the rest of her life carrying around her old green card? 

What a Ride

Then you reach the top. The car tilts, getting ready to plummet down the track. You know it is going to happen fast. It’s going to go one way or the other.

Our Nation—The Gift That Keeps On Giving

We are a country founded on liberties and certain inalienable rights, including the pursuit of happiness. These foundational principles derive from God Himself and His perfect word—the Holy Bible.

Worth It All

The deepness that He is taking me through requires a trusting faith, a real faith without any room for doubt or another plan.

Not So Glamorous Summer

We aren’t doing much this summer, not compared to everyone else. I sit and scroll through endless social media posts of people and families enjoying their vacations and I feel like the most boring person ever.

Sing A New Song

Yet, a new dawn is not born without the Sun.
And if the mind survives, the battle is won.
Hence, think thou not on all that be wrong.
Let loose your lips and sing a new song.

The Immanence of God

Immanence describes a God who is always at hand—actively and personally working through even the littlest details of the lives of His creations.

The Coming Middle East War

As we witness tensions rise with the US and Iran, many are speculating if a possible confrontation may occur between Israel, Russia, Iran and its proxies. The Bible has been saying this very thing for over 2,500 years now that this will occur in the last days.

How Are You Doing?

Our receptionist asked him the general greeting question, “How are you today?” He laughed and replied, “It’s too early to tell.”

Well Worth It

I must admit that I have a recurring tendency to picture God looking down on me with disappointment as if I’ve failed Him one too many times to be a kid He could ever be proud of.

#BodGoals: A Social Media Hot Take

I realized that I was being consumed by social media and what I was seeing to an unhealthy level. What I was seeing on social media was consuming my every thought.

The Devil’s Snare

We were hooked on the empty promises and the heavenly picture in front of us. Our heads were in a tailspin. We felt like we were staring into the eyes of paradise. “Just sign right here,” he said.

The Setup Place

Your setup place may not be like my setup place, but when we are in that place, praise Him and worship Him!

It’s Not a Sin to Need Money

Why is it okay for a businessperson at a booming company to drive her dream car but not okay for a pastor to drive his dream car?

The Transcendence of God

The phrase “far above” doesn’t refer to physical distance. God is non-physical, He is omnipresent, He is with us all the time. Therefore, He can never be really far from us.
