Hidden Things

Hidden No More Mark 4:22 KJV “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.” I remember an incident which involved myself when I was in school. A classmate accused me of cheating during a Math test. She was jealous because I received a higher mark than hers.

Where Is Your Name?

Where Is Your Name?

Luke 10:20 KJV “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” People are happy for various reasons, mostly for personal successes and triumphs. Others rejoice because of good health; for having good reputation and honor within their community; respect and tribute given are jealously guarded.

My Strength

Psalm 31:3-4 KJV “For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.

Care Enough To Pray

Care Enough To Pray

1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV “Pray without ceasing.” Ephesians 6:18 KJV “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” One of the questions a new Christian asks concerning 1 Thessalonian 5:17 is, “But how do I pray continously? I have to stop sometimes.” Such a question pops up because of their understanding that “without ceasing” means “without stopping”. Well, sure, why not? Literally praying without stopping is not…
