What’s Important to God?

I have always been astounded at what is important to God. That's why I hate religion! And I believe that's why Jesus hated religion too. It was because of how unlike God religion was in Jesus' day. Always has been and still is today! For instance, when God is evaluating his people at the end of ...

Misplaced Allegiance = Misplaced Worship

WORSHIP is not about our music, it's about our allegiance! (loyalty or commitment of a subordinate to a superior or of an individual to a group or cause. Loyalty , faithfulness, fidelity ,obedience, homage, devotion.) Our adversary is not after our song, he wants our allegiance! He wants our obedience. He wants our worship. He wants us to profane God's ...

Forgiveness; It’s Not Cheap, but Why We Can’t Afford NOT to Give it Away!

I’ve done some stupid things in my life. Some I laugh at and some, I don’t realize just how stupid until I am living in the regret of what I did later in life and it is quite painful. You see, the biblical truth of “you reap what you sow” is a natural law as ...

A Beautiful Picture of God’s Heart

Kids say the darndest things…..

I was inspired by a blogger to include some humor in my blogs so here goes... My grandson, Trey, who is now 16 was about 6 at the time of this really funny moment: We were talking about grannies and how they are supposed to be old and wrinkled up (no offense to those who ...

PRAISE…..what does it mean for our lives?

I was half asleep this morning, upon waking, which is when most of my great ideas come, when I starting pondering the idea of PRAISE! Yes, in the sense of praising God, but simply about what it means. What does it mean to our ordinary, everyday life? Not in a worship service or gathering but ...
