Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. (1 Peter 4:1-2)As believers, our lives should be different from everyone else who is not a believer. Your life, because Jesus has saved yo...

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”(John 14:6-7) As a child, I grew up in church and learned to memorize Scripture before I gave my life to Christ. Little did I know that my choice to memorize Scripture would play a major part...
Trust God with Your Finances

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. (Proverbs 11:24) Years ago, I pastored a church in Houston.

But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. (Luke 15:32) I grew up in a family where I had three sisters, one who was nine years older than me, and two who were younger. After I got saved, I shared Jesus with my sisters because I wanted them all to know Christ. The sad story was that one of my little sisters got involve...
A Defining Encounter
by Curt Dodd on January 5th, 2023
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5)For every follower of Jesus, there has been a specific, defining moment when ...
Before the Throne of God
by Curt Dodd on November 29th, 2022
Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence. ‘Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them,’ nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God...
