Walking Your Faith - Coram Deo

2 Corinthians 3:9 “For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.” NKJV

Loved Ones,

The law of God was never meant to be the final destination for humanity. Unfortunately, too many people stop there. They read the Ten Commandments and become depressed because they realize they cannot do them all. They see the list of "do's and don'ts" and realize that they cannot justify the ...

1 Corinthians 14:17 “For you indeed give thanks well, but the other is not edified.” NKJV 

Loved Ones,

God has created the church to function in an amazing way. Each person is at a different level of spiritual maturity. Some are new to the faith and are in need of spiritual sustenance. They desire the milk of the Word and need time to learn and grow in Christ. Then there are those who are well equipped with God's Word and who have endured ...

Romans 14:7 “For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.” NKJV

Loved Ones,

We all know how kids imitate what they see around them. I will never forget one time, when I was driving in traffic, and someone cut in front of me. From the back seat of the car I hear, "Idiot." My kids were riding in the back seat of the car with me. Where do you think they learned that? They learned that through observation, of me, no doubt. It would ...

Micah 4:2 “Many nations shall come and say, 'Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.' For out of Zion the law shall go forth, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” NKJV 

Loved Ones,

In the last years of his life, Michelangelo was said to have scribbled "Ancora Imparo" in the margin of some of his work. These two words are translated...

Genesis 37:18-19 “Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. Then they said to one another, "Look, this dreamer is coming!” NKJV

Loved Ones,

The brothers of Joseph had a deep-seated hatred for their brother. They had allowed this bitterness to take over them spiritually, mentally (sins of their hearts and minds), and now into the physical. They were at a point where action rooted in em...

Titus 3:9 “Do not get involved in foolish discussions about spiritual pedigrees or in quarrels and fights about obedience to Jewish laws. These things are useless and a waste of time.” NLT

Loved Ones,

One of the songs we love to sing in our chapel ministry fellowship is titled, "They'll Know We Are Christians By Our Love". This song sums up how the world "should" view us as followers of Christ. Unfortunately, the world is more apt to recognize ...

John 4:4 “But He needed to go through Samaria.” NKJV

Loved Ones,

In John 4, we see our Lord travel through Samaria.This may not mean much to us, but in that time, the hatred between Jews and Samaritans was legendary. Despite the cultural issues around Him, Jesus continues His journey through Samaria because there was a 'need'. What could be so important that Jesus had to go through Samaria? Why would Jesus walk through hostile territory? Simple. There was a woman in Sa...

Matt 17:1-2 “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; 2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.” NKJV

Loved Ones,

The disciples are on the mountain with the Lord and witnessing a “transformational” event. How are we transformed by the Lord? The Greek word that appears in the New Testament for transform is “meta...

1 Timothy 1:12 “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.” NKJV

Loved Ones,

It's your first day on a new job. You walk in with little to no experience and your boss tells you, "I'm taking two weeks off and you're running the business." Can you imagine the fear and anxiety that would hit you at that moment? To be given a major task you haven't been equipped to accomplish w...

2 Chronicles 7:14 “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” NKJV

Loved Ones,

In today's society, it can be difficult to live a life that calls for us to be different. We excuse away bad behavior and submit to pressures that weigh on us – and we compromise. We try to do things our own way and resist doing ...
