Being a steward is someone who takes care of someone else’s property. God owns everything we just possess it. As Christians we were bought with a price. We are stewards over our body, influence, talents, attitudes, money, possessions, and time.
1 Corinthians 6:19-21 (NLT) 19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
God has given us freewill; however, we have to keep in mind that one day we will answer to God as to how we were stewards over what He has allowed us to have. Since we belong to God we are responsible to Him for what we do with what we have, do, say, act…

“When you don’t feel like it, do it anyway. Discipline creates desire, not the other way around.”
I recently came across this quote and thought it was perfect for my goals for the summer. I started my very first week of summer break with the goal of working out a minimum of 4 times a week. Now, throughout the school year my alarm tears me out of sleep at 4:30 every morning. And here I was setting a goal to get up at 5:00am (sleeping in for a half hour) at least 4 times a week in order to get in shape and change my lifestyle. Which leads me to why this quote seemed so appropriate for me this summer. There have been many mornings that I do not feel like it. Many mornings. But I kept telling myself that the more disciplined I could become toward my goal, the…

1 John 2:6 (NLT) 6 Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did
To walk as Christ did means we must obey His teachings, follow His example of complete and total obedience to God and loving service to people. We must notice that Jesus ministry was filled with prayer. The disciples walked with Him daily, seen His altar of prayer and wanted Him to teach them how to pray. It’s important, it’s a must in our daily walk to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ to this world.
We must crucify the flesh and line up our desires with God’s will in total surrender to our own wants, desires and idols. We have to cut off the old life – die to self.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLT) 19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in…

I have never been one to have a big circle of “friends.” Never had real close longtime friends. Sometimes that would bother me – make me wonder what was wrong with me? Or what was wrong the other people that they didn’t want to be my friend. But for the most part, I have been good with not being especially social and kind of being alone. Over the last few years I have done a lot of looking inward and thinking about who I truly am and why I am that way (sometimes being self-aware is no fun). What I have really learned about me is that I have been the one who has chosen to not have friends. I seemingly got along with a lot of people, but rarely let anyone “in” or close. It has been my choice to keep people at a distance. Until now. The relationship…

Today when we think about church we tend to think in terms of what does this church have to offer me. How can this church serve me; what kinds of programs and worship do they offer and will I be expected to do anything. Are the seats comfortable, do they have a coffee bar, does the band crank it up or quiet it down.
Do we go to church in search of the presentation being God’s plan, His pattern if you will, of reaching the lost. The cross and Jesus shed blood. Jesus took our sins upon Him so that we could spend eternity with God. He was our bridge, His blood is the cure for our sin sick nature.
Do you think that perhaps today in many churches we are running sideshows with attractions, schemes and methods being used to lure people into church. We plan our service…
