"Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple." - Luke 14:27
The true Christian life, which is to be a disciple of Christ, is a life of sacrifice. This "taking up of our cross" means that we 'die' to the right to do as we please, and surrender 'unconditionally' to the Lordship of Jesus. It was on the Cross that…Continue

All of the flesh it consumes. It consumed man's flesh beyond recognition,…Continue

Matthew 6:13 - "And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one."
There is no temptation or sin in heaven. This prayer does not imply that God wants to tempt us. We know from James 1:13 that it is impossible for God to entice us to sin.
This kind of praying is important because it requires us to face…Continue

Performance is a very hard taskmaster. In fact, under performance we can never do enough. For us to believe that God only loves us or approves of us because of what we DO for Him rather than WHOSE we are, is to actually demonstrate that what Christ did on the Cross is of no effect! In other words, we are believing that His death and the shedding of His Blood was not enough to place us in right-standing with God.…Continue

The decisions we make, the places we go, the things we say -- create images in our subconscious. First, we think a thought; then we rehearse it until it begins to formulate an image. Finally, our words speak things into existence and our actions set dynamics into motion. We are to present and display the Kingdom of God that dwells within us, releasing it in powerful demonstrations. We are not called to simply exist, but to be CONDUITS that…Continue
