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 [...]

Get Amplified

Ephesians 3:14-21 “For this reason (seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ) I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for whom every family in heaven and on earth is named (that Father from whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name).

Honor Your Parents

Proverbs 1:8 & 9 “My son, hear the instruction of thy father and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains around thy neck.” First let’s look at this in the spiritual. This is telling us as the children of God that if [...]

Happy Birthday Baby!

Ephesians 5:28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. I love you like i [...]

GET TO KNOW HIM! His will is not a mystery.

One of my favorite verses my good buddy Pastor John showed me was: Ephesians 5:17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Well, i found another just as awesome. Amos 3:7Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets. We are not just aimlessly running [...]

More Giving Thanks!

My beautiful wife gives my daughter memories verses for each week. She already has this one memorized. I love it! She is awesome. Ephesians 5:18… be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks [...]

Knowing what God is up to, is up to you.

1 Corinthians 2:9 However, as it is written: “No eye has seen,     no ear has heard, no mind has conceived     what God has prepared for those who love him” 10 but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. I am a firm believer that we are to KNOW what God is trying to do in [...]

Finding the Lord’s will

James 4:13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to [...]
