    Destined To Be Holy " . . it is written, Be holy, for I am holy 1 Peter 1:16 " We must continually remind ourselves of the purpose of life. We are not destined to happiness, nor to health, but to holiness. Today we have far too many desires and interests, and our lives are being consumed and wasted by them. Many of them may be right, noble, and good, and may later be fulfilled, but in the meantime God must cause their importance to us to decrease. The only thing that truly matters is whether a person will...

Joy should not be confused with happiness. In fact, it is an insult to Jesus Christ to use the word happiness in connection with Him.

    Usefulness or Relationship?

    The Ministry of the Unnoticed " Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . —Matthew 5:3 " The New Testament notices things that do not seem worthy of notice by our standards. “Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . .” This literally means, “Blessed are the paupers.” Paupers are remarkably commonplace! The preaching of today tends to point out a person’s strength of will or the beauty of his character— things that are easily noticed. The statement we so often hear, “Make a decision for Jesus Christ,” places the emphasis on something our Lord never trusted....

    Christ-Awareness " . . . and I will give you rest —Matthew 11:28 " Whenever anything begins to disintegrate your life with Jesus Christ, turn to Him at once, asking Him to re-establish your rest. Never allow anything to remain in your life that is causing the unrest. Think of every detail of your life that is causing the disintegration as something to fight against, not as something you should allow to remain. Ask the Lord to put awareness of Himself in you, and your self-awareness will disappear. Then He will be your all in all. Beware of allowing...

  • Prayer request for a boy named Andy

    prayer
    His name is Andy, he is 12 years old. He was taken by CPS from his guardian and put into a foster home. I have reason to suspect he was abused, but am waiting for everything to come out in the wash with the trial. The child has suffered so much in his early life and all he ever wanted was a home. Pray the justice system works and this boy finds it.
