Live Entirely Before Me

It is difficult to live with someone. Growing up you might find it a struggle to get along with your siblings. In college you might find it hard to be a coinhabitant with particular roommates. Then one day there comes marriage and more interesting situations. You might not get the curtains you want hung. You […]

Dressed by God

I speak a lot about the Armor of God and about being clothed in righteousness. We are able to put on this armor and to be clothed in this righteousness only through God’s grace, only through the blood of Christ. From the very beginning, God made sure we were able to be dressed by Him. […]

The Same Dirt

God made man from the dirt. It is something that we do not consider very often. We read about it in Genesis and we might hear during a funeral service that to dust we shall return. I think it is fair to say that most people do not consider these facts on a day-to-day basis […]

Firstfruit

When we give something to God, we are to give our best. God has given us His best and everything that we have is not even ours—it is His. Everything. When we look at Cain and Abel, today’s passage speaks volumes. Abel brought an offering from the FIRSTBORN animals. They were CHOICE CUTS of meat. […]

Life is Precious

As we grow, we cannot help but put values on people. It is all around us. Some people make more money than others. Some people come from a more advanced culture than others. Some people are more popular than others. We might catch ourselves picking favorites. Sometimes we find ourselves in a position to consider […]

Open Your Eyes

What a special moment Abraham had with God. Abraham and Lot had just split ways, with Lot choosing what area he desired to take for himself. Then God tells Abraham (then Abram) to look around. He said, “Open your eyes, look around. Look north, south, east, and west. Everything you see… I will give to […]

God With You

When considering a change in life, do you consider if you can do it? When you are facing a difficult situation, do you consider if you can do it? From what I have seen, many people consider their own strength. Whatever they are faced with, they consider if they alone can do it. If they […]

God Who Sees

The world can feel like a very lonely place. With technology growing, we have become even more disconnected. There are moments when you can feel very alone. It is as if no one cares. It is as if no one knows of your situation, your problems, your suffering, your pain. But that’s not true. Hagar […]

She Went to God

When there is a problem, who do you go to first? When you do not understand something, to whom do you turn? When Rebekah became pregnant, it was a great answer to the prayers of Isaac. However, there was a fight going on in her womb. Jacob and Esau were getting ready for what would […]

Prosper

I will never tell you that you will be rich because you are a follower of Christ. I loathe the prosperity preaching I’ve heard time and time again. You may not be a millionaire when you accept Christ into your life. I know many Christians who live on very little income. I will still say […]
