II Cor. 3:18, “But we all with open face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

Something is dreadfully wrong with our world. Mankind wanders around in darkness but actually thinks he has perfect vision. The darkness has corrupted our hearts so that our view of everything is skewered. Our perception of everything from money to property, from marriage to family, and from gender confusion to sexual..

Passage1 Corinthians 4:14-21
PrayerDear Father, king of the ages,I am proud to be your child, and I want to listen carefully to your admonition. Help me to listen to you through the words of my spiritual fathers in the faith, your apostles. May I imitate them!Remind me of their ways in Christ. From them and through them may I learn that the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.Come to me, Lord, to chasten me and change me. But please show your love in a spirit of gentleness, rath..

Matt. 16:15-17 ¶ He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven”.

I was desperately searching for God in 1973. I had pretty much run the gamut of spiritual options; I had gone to Bahai faith meetings, checked out the Divine Light Mission, and gone to the feasts at the..

Passage1 Corinthians 4:8-13
PrayerDear Father, king of the ages,Would that your people were already filled! Would that they were already rich! Would that they were already kings and sharing the reign with each other! For then I would be sharing in it too.We know all this grandeur awaits us in the kingdom that is to come, but for now, give us the endurance to follow your apostles in a parade that is a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men. Many are strong, but we may have to put up with w..

Psa. 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

What does an avocado taste like? There is really no good answer to that question. Of course an avocado tastes like an avocado, it is unique. The only way to know for sure is to taste an avocado for yourself. That is the way it is with spiritual things. Someone can explain in great detail their understanding of God and His word or even tell the stories of their own God encounters but until you taste the goo..

Passage1 Corinthians 4:6-7
PrayerDear Father,Help me to live according to your Holy Scriptures. That is why I pray to you in their very words. I want to be conformed to your will, for you will what is best for me. Help me not to be puffed up against my brothers and sisters in Christ. For who sees any difference in me. We all have been freely justified by your grace, forgiven of our sins.What have I that I have not been given? I cannot boast of anything as if it were not a gift. Whatever I am or ..

John 6:35 ¶ And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst”.

Food keeps us alive. Obviously, we eat for more than survival, pleasure also comes into play, but food is the very strength of our life. As the old adage goes, “you are what you eat”. That’s why what Jesus taught in today’s verse is so important, our spiritual food determines what and who we become. Jesus called this spiritual food our daily bread. ..

Passage1 Corinthians 4:5
PrayerDear Father, who drives away all the darkness,Keep me from passing judgment before the proper time, before the Lord comes, for he will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of every person's heart, including mine. And so everyone will receive appropriate commendation from you.Let me be concerned about “this day” and “that day.” Let me do my best to serve you “this day” – today, that I may stand before you on “th..

MERRY MONDAY BY PARRIS

-“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” Heb.10:23

There is something special about going to the corporate assembly and experiencing corporate worship. But you should know by now I am biased. It’s been a neat journey since the age of 16 waking up every Sunday and going to church to experience worship with my brothers and sisters, hear a Holy Ghost messag..

Some difficult questions are easier to avoid than others. The question about homosexuality might be one of those if it weren’t for cultural pressures and our loved ones who find themselves in the middle. Whether we take the traditional position or the new gay-affirming side, there’s a lot at stake.

Traditional: If we wrongfully condemn homosexual practice as sinful, we may be depriving people of God-given sexual pleasure and intimacy. Worse, we’re implicitly compelling our friends to needlessly..
