Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus who have wondered away from the Truth. (2 Timothy 2:16-18 NIV) Forward Friday! We do not know Hymenaeus or Philetus, yet, powerful impact they made to be listed in scripture. Sadly, not for a good reason. They are two examples who became more and more ungodly. Which list would we land, good- staying true to scripture or bad – becoming more ungodly? If each person takes this question serious, real assessments of how far […]
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. (Colossians 2:8 NIV) Traditions I treasure traditions, however, we cannot allow traditions to define necessary changes. There is a wealth of knowledge to gain transforming hearts and minds to be more like Christ. We are called to imitate Christ, to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world. If every person acknowledging their confession of faith, for Jesus to be Lord of their life, take their spiritual journey […]
Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.” But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” says Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” (John 4:31-34 NIV) Remembering/Memorial Day 2018 A day remembering all individuals who died while serving, protecting our great nation, America. Memorial Day dates back to 1870. Before separated by northern and southern states, dates are available on the first soldier’s grave decorated. Recently, our oldest […]
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. (Genesis 1:1-3 NIV) My journal entry 5-22-18: God, your creation is majestic in all ways- reaching every corner of this world. Respectful, finding relevance, which is easy to do for all who earnestly seek You. If more people take serous their actions that claim to be your children, the church would clearly be seen […]
“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore, be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” (Matthew 10:16 NIV) Wolves Motivating Monday! Love when scripture is written in red, reading exact words from Jesus Christ. His disciples were given authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. As specific directions were given, the above warning stands out to me. Jesus told no lie nor delayed truth…when we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ, taking our walk serious…We’re sent out like sheep among wolves. Trustworthy? Wouldn’t it be nice, pure utopia, if […]

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have. Christ provides many words for us through the day, we have to be willing to see, hear and move into His will. Praising Him even in the storms of life.Kim Baker. Sikeston, MO
