The Mission of Motherhood

With Mother’s Day approaching, I would like to take some time to write about the precious and powerful mission of motherhood. A day in the life of a mother can be busy and bustling. The task of motherhood is a high calling but sadly many are undervaluing the value of this great status. There is an intrinsic value in motherhood because it is something God designed.…

False Faith Versus True Faith

Many religions teach that if you are going to be saved and go to Heaven, you need to perform good works. However, this is completely wrong. Scripture makes it clear that salvation is by grace through faith and not works,   “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no…

Born to Die

When Mary was informed that she was going to be with Child, she was told that His name shall be called “Jesus”.

It is for this reason I was very excited when I…

What is the Church?

The word “church” means different things to different people. The church is an ornate building to some. To others it is a holy huddle of religious people. Some believe the church is seen in the lives of people in their communities and neighborhoods. Some view it as a house of hypocrites. Some even suggest that it is an entertainment center. Well then, what is…

True Peace

One time when Jesus was on a boat with His disciples a storm broke loose and the waves crashed into the boat and it started to flood with water. The disciples found Jesus peacefully sleeping in the stern of the boat, and fearing for the their lives they woke Him up. Jesus arose and said with boldness, “Peace, be still!” (Mark 4:39). Then there was a calm.
