The great Intercessor

I have been reading Acts 2 using an online tool which gives me the ancient Greek, and Hebrew translations.  It takes a lot of time to look up each word.

Where do I fit?

In John chapters 14 and 15, Jesus is saying goodbye to His disciples. Chapter 15, starting with verse 18 continuing to verse 25, Jesus warns the disciple that they will be despised.

My prayers have become a habit

John 14: 11-14:  Verse 11:  Jesus is in the father and the father is in me.  The same as Jesus is in you and you are in Jesus. When I write it like that, it is very confusing.  Did you invite Jesus to live in you?  Now that we are past that point, think about... Continue Reading →

Second Chances

As Christians, we are supposed to be about second chances.  Yet are we?  If someone tells you that they are a convict, how do you react?  Do you jump back a bit? do you check for your wallet? Do you look to see if they have a weapon?  Jesus told us that he who is... Continue Reading →

What is Servant-Leadership?

John 13: 3-17:  To be a good leader, not only do you need to be willing to serve, but you must be willing to be served.  John 13:3-17: is the story of Jesus washing the disciples feet.  It is a perfect example of Servant-Leadership.
