In His Service

1 Cor.12:4-5 “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.  There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord.” (emphasis added).

It is so important for us to understand that spiritual gifts are for service, for the benefit of others. So, these spiritual gifts we have been given, we have received, and we have activated is not about you or me. Read the rest of this entry

Open Up!

Acts 2:3-4 “Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.”

The immediate evidence of being filled with the Holy Spirit is joy but the expression that comes out is, other tongues, speaking in other tongues. Must everybody speak in tongues? No! Some people remain at half a cup till they see Jesus and they are going to heaven. Read the rest of this entry

Shepherd vs. Cowboy

Ps.26:3 “Your constant love is my guide and your faithfulness always leads me.” (TEV, emphasis added)

Who is your shepherd? I hope that by now you can say Only Jesus! A lot of us know people or are people that travel. When we travel to new places, sometimes we go around the city just to appreciate the sights. Read the rest of this entry

The New, The Overflow

Luke 5:37-38 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins.”

Get excited because God is taking away ‘The Old’ in order to establish ‘The New’. God is on your side and God is all that you need. For someone today, God Himself is giving you a new name. The Lord God is giving you a new name. Read the rest of this entry

With Him

Isa.7:10-12 “Later, the Lord sent this message to King Ahaz: “Ask the Lord your God for a sign of confirmation, Ahaz. Make it as difficult as you want—as high as heaven or as deep as the place of the dead.” But the king refused. “No,” he said, “I will not test the Lord like that.”


In yesterday’s devotional, we established the fact that while Ahaz response to God on the surface sounded deeply spiritual. It sounds spiritual but it had no spiritual weight. It sounded pious but was arrant nonsense, crap. When God says, “give me a sign”, Read the rest of this entry


Lev.19:2 “Give the following instructions to the entire community of Israel. You must be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.


When you see the big picture, you can cheer up even though you are going through a difficult time. When you see where God is taking you, and you embrace it because it is one thing to see it and another thing to embrace it. Read the rest of this entry

Speak Up!

Gal.6:2 (TLB) “Share each other’s troubles and problems, and so obey our Lord’s command.”

In addition to admitting how you feel, finding a safe place, and turning your attention to God. To cheer up when you are depressed, the fourth thing is, let someone know that you are hurting. The fourth point may be like the second point, Read the rest of this entry

Sacrifice II

1 Kings 18:38-39 (NIV) “Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench. When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”

You and I need to understand the place of sacrifice because it is a huge part of the Christian’s journey. God says He will bless the works of your hands; the hands need to work to qualify for the blessing. Read the rest of this entry

Full Front

Eph.6:18 “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” (emphasis added)

With every piece of God’s armor in place, when it is all said and done, you will still be standing. When the Bible says, “having done all, stand”, it does not mean, Read the rest of this entry


1 Sam. 15:22 But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.”

Please read Luke 17:11-19. Another noteworthy thing from this passage of scripture is the fact that Jews and Samaritans were together. That is not a very common scene. Read the rest of this entry
