Works Through Faith

The Pharisees are alive and well! The problem is that some people act like Pharisees and don’t even know it. But what is a Pharisee? Is it the same as the Pharisees that we see Jesus interact with?

Finish Strong!

Christianity is not a race, although some might think it is. The goal is not to do more good deeds than the next person or to be more upstanding or righteous than everyone else. But similar to a race, life on earth is something that we will one day finish. Then the question becomes: How will you finish?

All Things for Gods Glory

Society today is at an interesting point. Information is only a click away, we are bombarded by streams of data to process everywhere you turn! I can pretty much find out about anything or any public figure that tickles my fancy in mere moments. We are such a super-productive society!!

You Don’t Have to be Perfect to Walk in the Light

Christians are down on themselves (and each other sometimes) a lot. We try each and every day not to fall prey to temptations into sin and each and every day we fall short of the mark. Nobody can be perfect, and that’s ok because God doesn’t demand that of us. All he asks is that we honestly try our best.
