  • When God’s will, our will and death collide

    I believe that God’s will is always being done  and that it is always the best way but that we as humans are constantly distorting that will just by being human really. You see, this “life” is a mixture of God’s will always at work in the world and our free wills always moving this world in all kinds of ways sometimes closer to God’s will and sometimes not.

    When we are moving towards God’s will, our spirit is alive and our hearts are steady but when we move away from it, we are wounded and experience more suffering and restlessness.

  • The perfect sermon

     If you are like me you have listened to many sermons. Some good and some not so good. (I have preached both as well.) There have been times that I have walked away from hearing a sermon and been overcome with the glory of God. Have you ever wondered what makes a good sermon?  What makes us see God and his glory and power?

    Corinth Christian
    • Christian life shows in a person’s behavior, thoughts and actions. Some people only know the word of Jesus Christ through watching Christians and what they do. Four things  threaten Christians: the media, modern philosophy, peers and fear. Stand up for God’s word..

  • Life is a mission trip

    Jesus never built a church building. He never told his followers to come to a worship service once a week for about an hour to pray to Him, sing to Him and read His stories, and then go back to their normal way of living during the rest of the week.

  • God loves you for you

    God’s plan for us is to be more like Christ. It’s not that He doesn’t love you right now as you are, but He knows what is best for you. So sometimes when you want something to grow, it has to be pruned. This is painful for the plant because the plant doesn’t understand the greater purpose.
