Seek First the Kingdom

Romans 8 12 Therefore, brothers and sisters we have an obligation – but not in the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.” New King James: 12 [...]

That proper fear.

Acts 19:17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and [...]

Stay salty my friends

Paul told us to let our conversations be seasoned with salt. Col 4:6 “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” What does salt do? It adds flavor. So we should add flavor to the conversation. And one of the best ways is [...]

Free Good Gifts

From Josh, in reference to yesterday’s scripture: “it really stands out to me that he would refer to what Simon was trying to buy as a “gift” from God. I mean, who has to pay for a gift? Stands to reason that with God’s gifts we still have a requirement – a pure heart motive.” [...]

Walking on the Water

John 6 16 Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. 18 Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. 19 So when they had rowed [...]

Wheat and the Tares

Matthew 13 24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, [...]

The Birds of the Air

Matthew 6 25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither [...]

Name Change

John 1 40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He [...]

Our Words Shall Not Be Silenced.

Every dream I have where I have to fight the enemy, it seems I cannot speak, or that my words barely come out and are slurred. It’s like I’m in a drunken state or I’m super drowsy. In these dreams, I know how to dispatch the enemy with authority, I am however physically unable to [...]

We didn’t receive, so it’s not meant to be.

Matthew 17:14 14 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic[c] and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 So I brought him to [...]
