Praying Successfully

In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No man cometh unto the Father but by me.”  That is why I end my prayers with “in Jesus name,” because I know that the Son will relay my requests to the Father, which is the one true God. Some people […]

Don't be a Hypocritical Christian

This is a continuation of the blog Love in 2020. Hope you enjoy! Regarding looking good in the church and being hypocritical, Galatians 5:26 says, “Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”  The Amplified Bible breaks this verse down further by saying, “Let us not become vainglorious and […]

Truly Rich

I want to reflect on the Bible verse Proverbs 10:22. It states that, “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” The scripture makes me realize what God has blessed me with.

False Prophets

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” You will know them by their fruits.
