The Christian Test

We all know people who say they are a Christian, but something just isn’t right. We know Christians who adamantly proclaim someone who is famous as a Christian, but how do we know? We are not judges. We don’t know if someone prayed to accept Jesus Christ or wanted to get baptized but were delayedContinue reading “The Christian Test”

Spiritual Soaring

The eagle spreads its mighty wings             Soaring over the reaches of time His eye is keen upon the horizon             Turning his head from side to side Searching for the tender branch to take             Back to the mountain nest. There is power in each sweep of the             Mighty eagle wings gliding onContinue reading “Spiritual Soaring”

Fulfilling God’s Plan to Love One Another

This is a challenging scripture for those living in the flesh because we find it hard to lay our lives down for fellow Christians. Think of all the Christians you know and in your own strength can you give up your will and focus on their lives?
