Heart For The Innocent

Jesus had the heart for the innocent, those who didn’t have the social power nor evil motives. Jesus came as the oppressed because he wanted to show people that you don’t need money to prove how Holy you are. You just need an open heart. “At that time, the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ‘Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said,…

Before You Throw Stones

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’, and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove…

Friends Are A Sign Of God’s Love

I have been blessed with some incredible friends in the past few years. The biggest reason why I enjoyed living in Jacksonville so much was the great friends I made there.  If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have enjoyed living in Jacksonville so much.  My friends have encouraged me and helped me get through tough times even though they didn’t always have the money to do so. I’ve grown so much spiritually since moving to Florida, and it stinks…

When Do We Speak?

It is human nature to have relationships with people and engage in conversations. As Christians, we know that our guidance about human relationships is provided in the Bible. But what about the everyday activity of talking? It seems simple, yet the Bible includes a wealth of verses about talking. We are warned that if we leave our mouths open, we will come to ruin, but if we guard what we say, we can preserve our lives (Proverbs 13:3). In Ephesians,…

The Victory That Counts

w “Tell me, who can stand before us when we call on that great name? Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus – we have the victory.” This congregational praise song has lifted many hearts and spirits; however, it conveys a singular truth that’s worth a short exploration. We have the victory, or at the very least, the one that ultimately counts. Too often, we are bombarded with our failures, whether they be of the past, present or potential future, to consider this…

Heaven Is Cheering Us On

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” – Hebrews 12:1 [NLT] Lately, I have been talking about staying encouraged because I experienced firsthand how discouragement can ruin your peace. Satan’s loves when we feel discouraged because he knows…

God Has No Favorites

God never had any favorites in the Bible. He loved and chastised His people throughout scripture, and even today, God will give us our comeuppance if we step out of bounds. God is a God of equality. He may not give us all the same thing. But He loves us equally. “My dear brothers and sisters, how can you claim to have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people over others? For example, suppose someone…

Why Christian Most Art and Media Is Bad

I’ve been hearing many Christian YouTubers criticize Christian movies and Christian music for being too cheesy and subpar to what the world is offering. Admittedly, I share often share this sentiment. Christian music has grown over the past 50 years, to the point where you now have a “Christian” flavor of every genre of music. Christian rock at one point was played moderately on MTV and other secular rock platforms. Christian movies seem to be a dime a dozen where…

God’s Circumstantial Will

God always has His ultimate purpose, but God knows we’re going to get off course but He still going to lead us to our purpose in the context of our circumstances. God still allowed me to have a place of my own despite coming from a toxic family environment my first few months in Jacksonville. I think God is going to bless me here in North Carolina despite the financial mistakes I made back in Florida. I still think there’s…

Don’t Be A Stumbling Block

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.” – 1 Corinthians 6:12 I was reading a post from a friend of mine earlier, and the post was about a video of Christian woman wearing bikinis. I knew it was going to get controversial, but it straight up got ugly real fast. I personally didn’t have an issue with the…
