Dear Friends and Family, I am writing you this letter from my heart because I love you and want you to be ready when Jesus returns to take his bride (the church). I believe that we are living in the last days and that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon. Although no one can predict the day or the […]
How many times have you heard an excellent sermon or message that inspired you to make some changes in your life, but within a matter of weeks you were back to your old habits and routine? Kind of like those New Year’s Resolutions! The Bible says, you can’t put new wine into old wine bottles or you’ll ruin the […]
By Rhonda Jones The other day I was having a conversation with a friend regarding the lack of spirituality in the church.

I believe that one of the problems we have with Christianity is the need to want to turn everything Christ-related into a program, a curriculum, a procedure, a method, a specialty, or as Peter proposed, a monument.
1 John 4:18 declares that “There is no fear in love, because perfect love casts out fear.” So, what is perfect love? Perfect love is unconditional love. It’s love that demands nothing in return.

Is a sermon about contemplation and meditation enough for Christians to make time with God a daily practice? Do pastors not only need to talk about reverent silence, contemplation, and Christian meditation, but practice it as a body as well? And if so, how?
Abide in Christ! Let no one think that he can do this if he has not daily quiet time, meditation, and waiting on God. It is in such a calm and restful soul that the life of faith can strike deep root, that the Holy Spirit can give His blessed teaching, that the Holy Father can accomplish His glorious work.
Developing a personal and close relationship with God is so much more than going to church. What does it mean to know God intimately. Many Christians know alot about God but that’s about it.
God said we are to worship Him in spirit and truth but in reality many Christians worship God in works and with their minds. What role should the church play in equipping us to know God with our hearts and not just our heads.
Legalism and the church, isn’t that an oxymoron?
Everything in existence began with the Word.
