Multitudes of people in this world are captive to the will of Satan and are in bondage. They were not born as bad people. Incidents and the environment they were raised in have shaped their thinking and their actions. Many are captive and in bondage due to the religious leaders who have not spoken the truth. No one … Continue reading Living in Freedom
It’s probably safe to say that most mothers think about their grown children at least once a day. There is nothing closer to the heart of a woman than her children. Christian mothers may doubly be worried about their children’s well being and their eternal salvation. It can become nearly an obsession for a … Continue reading A Mother’s Heart
If you've been in church for more than 5 minutes, then you've probably been offended by someone or some thing. Church leaders often call the body to be in unity, but they don't give them the tools to do so and often people don't know how to get free from offense and forgive like … Continue reading Unity Can Work Only if We Have Restoration First
Clarence Dalrymple There is no point in trying to avoid hardships because in this life they are inevitable. As Christians, we are guaranteed to experience affliction, persecution, adversity, and trials. However, God has promised us absolute victory in every situation we face. Unlike those who are outside of God’s covenant protection, Christians have many assurances … Continue reading Truths that sustain us in trials
Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It … Continue reading It Is Finished!

What is the purpose of the church? Is the purpose of the church to blend in with the landscape of the world?

DayBreaks for 3/13/18: The Diagnosis
From the DayBreaks archive, 2008:
HAVERFORDWEST, England – A boy from Haverfordwest, England, can hear on one side for the first time in nine years after a cotton wool bud suddenly popped out of his ear. Jerome Bartens, 11, was diagnosed deaf in his right ear when he was two, causing him to struggle in school and strain to hear the TV and friends, Britain’s Daily Mail reported.

Many of you are probably aware that Billy Graham passed away this morning. He was a very prominent American evangelist of the 20th century. Only Heaven knows the number of people impacted for eternity because Billy Graham faithfully proclaimed the gospel. More importantly, he lived the gospel.
I grieve today because that generation of preachers is almost gone. I’m not saying that they are dead. I’m saying that this current generation is full of those who prostitute the gospel for selfish reasons and live a lifestyle that is extremely questionable. No one can live a life of sinless perfection, but we can at least aim to be like Jesus. Some of the top preachers in this country now are popular because they are blatantly disrespectful and have little to no regard for personal holiness.
