The Promise

The Promise! I have often wondered about the meaning of the word promise.  In my mind it meant an oath or that you give your word to do something or to commit to something. The amazing thing is that the word promise comes from the Latin word, promissum which means, to send before or to send forward. The Bible is full of promises that God has for us. The following 7 promises of God to man has great meaning for me personally and I hope in sharing it with you will have meaning for you as well. He has promised […]

The Spiritual Discipline of Telling Others

Telling others about Jesus is a key to grow your faith. Matt 28: 19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Tell other about Jesus by saying something like “let me tell you what Jesus did for me.” Don’t feel scary to tell about Jesus, as you speak the Holy Spirit will guide you.

The Spiritual Discipline of Worship

(Ps 100:2) “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Worshiping God means – “to fall down before” or “bow down before God”, to give “glory and honor” to God. Ways to worship the Lord: Singing, reading your Bible, clapping your hands, dancing, worship alone, worship with other believers. When we worship we prepare our hearts to glorify and honor God. Throughout the day we should seek moments and opportunity to worship God. It’s important to worship God in our hearts and in our minds. The next blog: The Spiritual Discipline of Telling Others.  

Spiritual discipline of serving others

Definition of serving: Where we show love and kindness to everyone even to those who do not treat us well. We should use every opportunity to serve others. Our motivation should come from a love for God and others and our desire to be more like Jesus. (John 13:4-5) ”so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.” Serving should be something that brings us joy! Serving […]
