Does America Really Want Justice?

This morning while pondering the current political and societal upheaval in our nation, the thought came to me, “Do we (America) really want justice?” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words in his Letter from the Birmingham Jail said: “No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a…

Racism in America

Racism continues to be a serious problem in the United States. Much was accomplished in the ‘60s during the civil rights movement in the United States, a decades-long struggle by African Americans to end legalized racial discrimination, disenfranchisement and racial segregation to eliminate prejudice. There is still more work to be done. The nation took stands against segregation in the…

Our Hearts Can Deceive Us!

“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” –Acts 17:26 It’s time to dismantle the oppressive force of racism!

You Have Not So Learned Christ – Part 2

“Be imitators of God in everything you do, for then you will represent your Father as his beloved sons and daughters. And continue to walk surrendered to the extravagant love of Christ, for he surrendered his life as a sacrifice for us.

The Power of Humility

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.

What Will The Outcome Of All This Be?

“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” —Daniel 12:3 NIV In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic life has ceased as many have known it. What the world is calling a new normal — stay-at-home orders, businesses anxiously awaiting to reopen, school…

How, Then Should We Live? Pt. 2

As believers, we need to understand what our mindset and lifestyle should be in these turbulent times. What does God require of His people particularly during times of upheaval, opposition, oppression and persecution. He requires His people to remain steadfast! This word brings to mind a calm assurance, an unwavering faith, and unchanging character in times of trouble. 1 Corinthians…

How, Then Should We Live?

As I was ministering earlier this week (see video @goingbeyondchurch),  I kept stressing that as Christians we should know how to position ourselves during this critical time in our nation. The church has become to complacent. To comfortable with the status quo. The Lord is calling His church to awaken from its slumber. It is crucial that the church understands…
