Bestowing All Due Respect

Women of faith have supported, guided, and journeyed with men of faith even to the point of engaging their faith to sustain the men when the men struggled with their faith and staggered along the journey. God has so ordained women to be the help-mates to men so much so that Jesus Christ validated women…

Purpose and Passion Leads to Progress

Nehemiah 1:1-11 There is a natural correlation to progress from purpose and passion. Each of us must have an unmatched level of purpose and passion to progress as God has ordained for us to advance. It is really simple: purpose and passion leads to progression. Purpose and passion both are necessary in our daily lives…

God Calls the Preacher to Comfort

Bible Verse | Isaiah 61:1-3 The preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ is often given a bad name and erroneously compared to someone giving others a scolding. The preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ has unfortunately become associated with and viewed purely from the negative. The preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ…

Bible Verse | 2nd Timothy 4:1-5 The call of God upon the life of a man or woman comes with its blessings and it comes with its share of complications.

Just as Jesus offers an invitation to the…

It Takes A Village

Suggested Readings: Philippians 4:11-16; 1st Peter 1:13-2:3 The call has gone forth to prepare our minds for action. The charge has been given. God calls His children to set our hope on the grace that is given to us through Jesus Christ. The action that God calls us to is perfecting and maturing saints for…

Yes We Can

Suggested Readings: Numbers 13:17-33 | Numbers 14 | Luke 1:37 | Mark 9:23 “I’ve never liked hearing people say you can’t do this or you can’t do that” (Reginald F. Lewis). I echo those words of Reginald F. Lewis because they address what I call “seeds of negativity.” Seeds of negativity detract and take away…

Charge!!!
