Your  Inspiration

In the time of Jesus, Jews were not to associate with Gentiles. Scripture tells us that Cornelius’ prayers and gifts to the poor had come up as a memorial offering before God. In a vision God had told Cornelius to send for Peter. God had also told Peter profoundly in a vision to go with […]

In the second book of Moses called Exodus, God gave many commandments. God listened to Moses’ excuses and continued to impress upon him the assignments already ordained. Moses was made a leader under God who provided everything needed for the solving of problems endured in Hebrew slavery under Egyptian rules (Exodus 6:5-8). God made Himself […]

At times when life may seem unfair to us, we can think of our commitment to God’s will. It is easy to get frustrated as we watch others who don’t care about Him, but seem to do well in life. This can make us feel cheated. Have we been good for nothing? Will there ever […]

David was known extensively throughout the Middle East as a warrior King. He defeated all of Israel’s enemies! Only thirty years of age when he began reigning as king, he completed a forty year term. As we read Samuel 1 and 2 we can easily conclude that God helped David establish Israel as a strong […]

Paul urged the Romans in the first century AD, to become a living sacrifice by presenting their bodies holy and acceptable unto God. His message is advising us today to live in the same manner.

Jochebed, Moses’ mother, evidently possessed faith in the promises of God. We find it interesting to note how her children also served God, their creator. It is difficult to trace her life’s activities, but we must agree that she was an outstanding mother and a prime example of great faith. Though she has never been […]

As Christians, we are often shaped by faithful followers of Christ in our lives. Paul reminded Timothy of the teachings he received from his mother Eunice and from his grandmother Lois to let the faith and love of Jesus Christ be his models for life. Timothy was charged by Paul to oppose false teachers. Old […]

This story begins with the power of God being made known without the help of man! When God set up plans of action for Daniel, they were never destroyed. No king such as Nebuchadnezzar or Darius could have overpowered God’s work through Daniel. At one point in the history of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar worshipped Daniel as […]

The temporary pleasure we get with some experiences and new things cannot fill the spiritual void in all of us. Only Jesus can do that! He even told us “I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Throughout the life of Jesus, we know of no arrogance […]
