Rise Up through Prayer!

by Brad

I have a lot to say about what’s going on in our country concerning all the divisions. People at odds with the president because he doesn’t always choose to make the most political statement, kneeling at the sound of the national anthem, and etc. It is heart breaking to see such disunity and even participating […]

Knowing God

by Brad

There is no one like our God! Nothing and no one compares to Him! And, only He can truly satisfy the thirsty soul! Yet in our culture, these are not self-evident truths. Why? Think about it, King David witnessed God’s marvelous acts of power. He partook of divine blessings. He saw God fight on behalf […]

What is Happening with God’s Bride?

by Brad

Have you become complacent and or lost interest in church? I ask because God’s Church, His people, doesn’t seem to be paying very close attention to what He has to say about His Bride (She is forgiven, sanctified, powerful, and loved)! Hear me out before you begin bashing the preacher! Statistics show that as many […]

Good Work?

by Brad

A construction company in Detroit has as their motto, “We do good work.” It’s a catchy phrase that grabs your attention. The company uses the slogan on the radio and with television adds which has given them great success. That makes me wonder, do I do good work, does the church do good work, and […]

After Easter

by Brad

Resurrection Sunday was phenomenal! I hope you enjoyed seeing the church packed. How wonderful would it be if that could be the case every week? Well, it can, we just have to get busy inviting! I think God uses spring in a way that stirs people spiritually, and we should be there to remind them […]

He Lives

by Brad

Up from the grave He arose…that will be our mantra this Easter Sunday. Really, that is our hymn every day! Or at least it should be! Consider this; of all the people of the earth, a very small percent will actually celebrate the resurrection of Jesus as Savior. Yet God has placed the Church (all […]

Invite Family and Friends

by Brad

This is supposed to be a wonderful and joyous time of year. There are so many things to celebrate: winters turn to spring, warmth filling the air, the evening’s sun still bright past 6:00 pm, oh, and the most wonderful thing…our celebration of the Resurrection of King Jesus!! There is nothing more glorious than to […]

It’s a New Day!

by Brad

This morning I was enjoying some quality time with my Jesus, when all of the sudden something profound hit me. It was like I was seeing creation for the very first time, or the first time in a long time. It was as though I had been color blind and a rainbow unleashed its beauty […]

God Cares

by Brad

I want to confess something to you, “I hate to shop!” I realize however that there are times when I must brave the isles at the grocery store and go pick up a few items. This is my strategy: I know what I’m looking for so I only shop for the things that meet my […]
