Love is Ultimate

The greatest mark of the Christian life is love. Jesus expressed love perfectly and completely. He fulfilled the law. Jesus tells us that the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love everyone else. But, what is love? Spend time this week in His holy scriptures and ask for the Holy Spirit to open your heart and to change you from the inside out.


1 Corinthians 12:12-31

1 Corinthians 13

Revelation 3


“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:5-7‬


If we follow Christ’s example we will not look to cling to our lives. We will not hold to what we want our lives to be but rather we give our lives, wholly, to God and to others. We live as servants and lovers of God. Your wholeness, your peace, your fulfillment, your hope is in Jesus Christ and Him alone. Know it! Live it! Love it! Have a most blessed week!

Fighting for Friendship

May 29th 2022


Who is in your corner? 


C.S. Lewis said, “In friendship...we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years' difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another...the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting--any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you," can truly say to every group of Christian friends, "Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another." The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”


We all have ideas about who we want our friends to be but seldom think about who they ought to be. A friend who makes me feel appreciated is nice. A friend who laughs at my jokes is pleasing. A friend who is there in times of need is helpful. But, a friend who always points me to Jesus is absolutely NECESSARY! I encourage all of you, even those who have already listened once, to click on the link and listen to Daniel’s message on “Fighting for Friendship.” Have a blessed week!

Fight for Freedom

May 23rd 2022


Let’s face it… living in this world is hard. Trying to get ahead seems impossible, gas prices are high, and there are shortages of all kinds. We worry about our safety and the safety of our loved ones. There is disease, and injury, and death everywhere we turn. Sadness, depression, anxiety, and hopelessness are rampant, especially in our younger generation. It can seem as though everyday is a fight. Well, that’s because it IS a fight. However, it is ultimately a spiritual fight. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬


I want to remind you that there is hope! There is peace! There is victory in Jesus! There is a way to be free from the bondage of this world and that way is Jesus Christ. Jesus is above all… a name above every other name. Call on His name and believe and He will be with you always. He will give you His strength to persevere until your fight is over and you find yourself in His glorious presence forever and ever, AMEN!
