After a Christian has accepted the gift of salvation through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and as he or she grows and matures in the Lord (continuing sanctification), there will be some changes in how he or she thinks. As a Christian, we find that our hearts (soul) grows more and more in agreement with God and His law (which is spiritual), but our flesh will still want to go the way of the world. All true born-again Christians have a split personality, so to speak. And even when you work not to sin (you don’t work to stay saved), sin still happens along your path of Christian growth. Paul sums it up quite well in Romans 7:21-25 KJV. This submenu is a compendium of profound, intense essays that are concerned about our heart’s knowledge about God’s love which grows in our Christian walk. They are tailored to aid understanding from the heart, the effects of sin and lawlessness on ourselves and others.

I thought about a few things and this is what I came up with… When the Lord says, “remember not the former things,” He is not only talking of bad things or losing positions that you have been. He is saying remember not your past victories. Look up to the new that I am bringing. There …

It is a truism that the subject of giving cannot be insignificant in the attainment of financial prosperity. By way of by Biblical allusion, Jesus said thus: “it is better to give than to receive.” It is not an overstatement to assert that the blessing of giving is immeasurable. It has been confirmed that one …

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.” — Og Mandino I don’t think anyone loves darkness. Maybe some do, but most of us love the light (think of Times Square at night). In as much as you do not like …

Paul, a prisoner of Christ … Philemon 1:1   Prison is not a great place; no matter the perspective or spin you want to put on it. It is a controlled life. You are told what to do, how to do it, where you should do it and when to do it. I don’t know …

Post-Acquisition Depression (PAD) occurs when you get what you want, but you are not so happy about it as you thought as you will be. Hahahahahahaha! Have you wanted something so bad and you think that when you get that stuff, you will live in a state of nirvana, perpetual bliss, pure joy and undiluted …

We will read through Genesis 39 and see things for ourselves. 1And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmaelites, which had brought him down thither. 2 And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous …

There are times in our lives when what we want to do (our desires; godly ones at that) conflicts with the direction that we KNOW God has given to us. You are not alone. I will introduce you to a man that has been there and done that; Paul, The Apostle. You see, you are already …

It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are. — Roy Disney I had a conversation with a good friend and mentor some time ago (during my teenage years). During the conversation, I mentioned a name. I said, “My friend John[1] was going to …”. The mention of the person’s name hit him …

“He (Jesus) came to bring men to God, not property to man” – Leon Morris, speaking on Jesus. Luke12 starts with Jesus preaching a powerful sermon. The number of folks in the crowd was innumerable. It records that men were falling over themselves to hear Jesus. Waoh … revelation was flowing through. Then a man made …

This missive has a joyful ending. So, I request that you do not panic. I am writing from a man’s perspective. Please bear with me for I have never been a woman. Being brokenhearted is not a good place to be. You don’t wish it on anyone. But there comes a time it happens to …
