The Secret to Finding and Keeping Friends

“Here is a simple rule of thumb for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you; then grab the initiative and do it for them!” (Luke 6:31)
Okay, here it is—this is the secret to finding and keeping lasting friendships: become women who want to see the women around them flourish. They have a word for that in Hebrew—it’s shalom. But not shalom like you might think. Not the overused, under-appreciated translation that we’re so used to throwin..

Is. 55:1, 2 – “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;

And you who have no money,

Come, buy and eat.

Yes, come, buy wine and milk

Without money and without price.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread,

And your wages for what does not satisfy?

Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,

And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
I have to laugh at my first impression of the laughter in revival meetings in 1994. I had never seen anything like that before, I ne..

BEIJING (China Aid) — As China commenced a meeting of the National People’s Congress (NPC) the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) on March 5, Beijing police detained two Christians who had travelled to pray for the proceedings.

Officers patrolling the Great Hall of the People in Beijing detained Zhou Jinxia from Dalian, Liaoning, and Shi Xinhong from Bengbu, Anhui, after they attempted to enter the Hall with evangelism pamphlets. Shortly after 10 a.m. on March 5, an hour..

Heb. 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

Beyond the Grave has been going on at this writing for over eighteen years. For those that don’t know, BTG is a production performed at Victory Fellowship dealing with the horrible issue of school shootings that began to appear after Columbine in 1999. Why the success of BTG? Why do crowds of young people keep coming year after year? I think one of the reasons is the uncertainty that haunts all of us about the fr..

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your Book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:13-16

I always knew I was a..

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.”
The Apostle Paul
I love the writings of Paul. Just think about what he was saying, “we now see through a mirror dimly”? Paul was talking about his own experience, you know, seeing Jesus on the Damascus Road, multiple visitations by Jesus to Paul, visions, trances, countless miracles. All of that is through a mirror dimly? Really? If that is true, heaven is going to be beyond our greatest hopes and dreams. We will see Jesus on the other s..

1 PETER 3:10-11 NLT
10 For the Scriptures say, “If you want a happy life and good
days, keep your tongue from speaking evil, and keep your lips
from telling lies.
11 Turn away from evil and do good. Work hard at living in
peace with others.

Why just tolerate life when you can have a happy life?

Obviously, you have some choice in the matter, according to
these verses. So, make the obvious choice, and ask God to help

Notice that the first instructions given in these verses
concern the word..

Vice President Mike Pence is reportedly meeting with pro-life advocates at the White House soon to make sure there is no text pair of funding under Obamacare.

Congressional Republicans have already approved in committee a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare. What pro-life advocates want to make sure doesn’t happen is that tax credits given under the replacement bill are able to be used to pay for abortions. That was the situation under Obamacare.

Here’s more:

He . . . preserves the way of His saints.
Proverbs 2:8
He … preserves the way of His saints.

The Lord your God … went in the way before you to search out a place for you to pitch your tents, to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day. § As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings, so the Lord alone led him. § The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights ..
