The greatest commandment in Scripture is for us to love GOD with everything we have. When Jesus said, “GOD’s love for Him equals His love for us (John 15:9), He was showing just how much value you can place on your relationship with GOD. This passage really speaks volumes when considering all that matters most: That love is at the center of all we …
 
Jesus declared we are able to love our enemies. Why? Is it because if we can learn to love our enemies, we can love others for whom we have no affinity or who wronged us. If so, there is a condition to this. In this episode, we examine what love is and what it is not along with practical ways to apply actions to help with fulfilling the command to …
 
"MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD! " The Bible is full of verses that speak about the importance and power of GOD's words. Some examples are found throughout both Old Testament books like Genesis 1:1 or Leviticus 26; as well New Testament Scriptures such as Jesus quotes regarding Satan when tempted by him as recorded in M…
 
Paul tells Christians in Romans 12:2 not to be like the world, which means its beliefs and practices. He also warns in 2Cor 11:14 - 'And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.' Satan who likes for people to think he doesn't exist or that his influence isn't too big in this world - one way being through humor - "I'm …
 
I want to delve into the part our mind plays when it comes to faith; how Satan’s fiery darts are lies and accusations which can easily destroy us if not opposed by GOD’s grace. And there is nothing sadder than seeing or hearing about someone who has turned away from GOD, His Word, salvation in Christ - all for some temporary pleasure with this life…
 
The Bible is full of wisdom to help you live your best life. But what about day-to-day living, how do we keep our faith strong to fight fear? Well, one way can be by facing fear when it arises, before our faith weakens! Now listen, I know that sometimes circumstances are fearful - no matter how brave or strong we are. Do you want to defeat fear to …
 
Do you have faith? Do you use it? I don't mean for salvation only, rather does your faith take you further along on the walk of becoming like the Son of God? Faith in the Atonement of the Son of GOD on the Cross not only saves us from GOD's wrath but arms us in order for us to serve GOD. In Ephesians 6:11-17, Paul outlines the importance of spiritu…
 
Time spent with GOD is always worth it. But we live in a world where noise and pressing responsibilities to buy and maintain convenience and comfort push GOD to the sidelines of our lives. We must find a balance to spend time on all aspects of life: work, family worship, or relaxation! Have you ever tried resting while vacationing? Yeah...the ones …
 
This is not a devotion in the normal format. Instead, I recorded an account of having recently survived the Delta variant of Covid-19 in August 2021. I hope to give an understanding of the effects of the virus and its sometimes deadly consequences. I survived due to 3 factors: 1) The diligence of my wife who woke me at 3:00 am on August 11th after …
 
The way you make decisions in your life is through the permissive will of God. He gives us choices, but only those which are good for our soul and not harmful or damaging to others. This episode goes over simple questions and answers about how we can take part in this adventure and take some of the mystery out. And by the way, GOD wants us to enjoy…
 
I must apologize. The titles of E20 and E21 got mixed up in my covid brain. It may be I should have waited before resuming the podcast. It's just that I missed sharing GOD's encouragement through these devotions. Regardless, I made corrections as much as I could and ask for your patience and understanding. When taken together E20 and E21 present a …
 
Love is such a powerful force, and Paul believed that the Holy Spirit was responsible for giving this love to Christians. The first of nine virtues listed in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 are "charity," or better known as agape Love. This kind of true selfless unconditional love stands out when you think about how different it can be from your relationship …
 
In the Bible, we know that GOD loves people and hates sin. He proved His love when He sent His son to rescue us from the bondage of sin - if we so choose it. To save us, He did not ignore all the sin in one's life but rather paid a very high price to set us free. We'll look into the following verse in Proverbs to better understand GOD's hatred for …
 
Many people wonder if God is biased and doesn't care about other people besides Christians. And then, Jesus once told a woman from Canaan that He wasn't sent to help her daughter because she was not of Israelite descent. And I wonder what does GOD have to say about it?
