  • Distractions Distractions come in many forms, but are always aimed at steering us off course.

  • The Balance of Faith and Grace During this season of our Lord’s birth, it is important we remember from whence we came.  How do we walk in our faith toward believers, toward unbelievers?  How are we supposed to treat others?  Should we focus on an unbeliever’s sin?  Should we point those sins out?  Today, let’s reestablish the balance of our Christian ...
  • Who Is Affected by Sin? Does sin affect God? Romans 5:8-9 But God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

  • The Two Trees – Restored to Greatness – Part 4               We are learning the significance of the two trees in the garden. We realize as we delve into this study, that God created man with choice.  It was not a matter of ethics or doing good.  It was a matter of listening to God, or listening to Satan.   God is ...
  • The Lord’s Prayer Reciting the Lord’s Prayer is good for our memory, but we cannot stop there. It must be more than a religious recital, construct, meme, or retort. We must understand what we are saying and mean it. This is an outline for “How to Pray.” Luke 11:1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying ...
  • The Two Trees – Mastering the Flesh-Part 3 We have talked about the consequences of Adam and Eve eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Now man’s eyes (focal point) are opened.  God gives us clues by telling Cain he must master his sin.  We are restored to God through Jesus, and we live by grace.  However, we still MUST ...
