Compelling Love

I was reading a devotional this week that talked about compelling love.  It touched my heart because it reminded me about God’s love for us.  He loves us so much.  Compelling love is a love that keeps on giving.  The scripture used in the devotional was 1 Corinthians 16:14 (AMP), “Let everything you do be […]

Align Yourselves

As Christians we must be careful who we align ourselves with. We need to be careful about who we choose as friends, associates and business partners. Everyone we meet does not have our best interests at heart. Some people do not have good intentions and will do anything to get ahead. They will lie, steal […]

Healthy Living – Rest

Healthy living is essential to be all that God wants us to be.  We cannot be effective disciples for Christ if we are tired, stressed and worn out.  Working in various ministries requires us to have energy and motivation.  It is hard to be motivated when you are tired.  This is the reason why I […]

God’s love is unconditional.  He […]

Is God’s Grace Sufficient?

What is grace?  Why does God give us his grace? Is God’s grace sufficient? Grace is the unmerited favor of God.  (Romans 1:18-3:20) Grace gives us access to the power of God.  We did not do anything to deserve grace, it is given to us because of God’s love for us.  Christ paid our debt, […]
