Teach the Truth!

‪Pastors: People in our society need less entertainment and more repentance taught … and it’s our job to teach it! If lives are ever going to be impacted in our churches, we need to stop watering the Bible down and stand firm on God’s truth. Stop leading people down the dangerous path of self-help and instead to the cross of Christ!

1 Peter 5:1-4, “To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.”

Not Ordinary

When we describe our kitchen to other people we always talk about new appliances, or new counters, or even our new silverware. But, we never describe the wall color to someone. The reason is simple: it is ordinary. Everyone has it, it’s not worth mentioning, and so we don’t even consider it. Sometimes, very sadly, we treat Jesus the same way. He has become a routine to us, a regular occurrence, and sometimes … even plain. We need to very careful to ensure He isn’t treated this way. He is the Christ. He is anything by ordinary. He has conquered death and freed us from sin. Celebrate and shout His praise friends … He is EVERYTHING!


Acts 2:24, “But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”
