It Doesn’t Make Sense
Today at 5:30 AM

In a world where laws are ignored, judgments are unfair, and wrong is often declared right, remember the words of the prophet Isaiah who warned against such times (Isaiah 5:20-21). The wisdom of man may lead to confusion, but God's wisdom brings order. Don't be swayed by false beliefs. God's truth endures through all generations and confounds worldly wisdom. Stick to the truth, follow God and His Word, for therein lie facts, good sense and judgment. That's the essence of the gospel.

Love One Another
Last Thursday at 5:30 AM

"Honor all men, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the King." (I Peter 2:17). Peter's words remind us to respect all, regardless of their background. Christians must love one another, fear God, and honor authority, no matter how wicked the ruler. This is the gospel, and Christianity is the solution.

Free Indeed

Jesus offers us freedom, not to sin, but from the law of sin and death. This freedom isn't a license for malice but a pathway to walk in His light, continually cleansed by His grace (I John 1:7). Jesus came that we through obedience to Him might be free indeed. The question is, do you understand your freedom?

Freedom, as defined by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., hinges on the laws of the land to avoid anarchy. Rooted in divine design, freedom comes with an obligation to maintain individual integrity and avoid causing harm. As we celebrate our independence, we must remember the cost of freedom – a daily commitment to goodness and righteousness. With God's blessings and grace, our nation flourishes. Furthermore, the freedom that Jesus offers frees us from the law of sin and death, that’s the Gospel!

Scriptures: Romans 8:2


What would you pay for your liberty? The freedom we enjoy came from the payments of a previous generation. Many have paid for our liberty with their life. Restoring liberty lost comes at a very high price. The highest price ever paid was paid by Jesus Christ on the cruel cross of Calvary. He died for you and me that we might be freed from the bondage of sin. Liberty - What would you pay for it? Each generation must decide, and it may be time for our generation to count the cost.

"Great is God's faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:23). God expects His creation to be faithful to Him. In I Samuel 4, we see how the Israelites' lack of faithfulness was their downfall. Reflect on the Proverb "Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life" (Proverb 4:23). Faithfulness entails wholehearted dedication. Are you faithful to Him?

Scriptures emphasize the importance of repentance for salvation. It's a challenge to inspire this change, but by preaching God's benevolence and strictness, we can guide people. God's goodness should be enough to make us obey, and His severity is a stern warning. So, are you ready to repent to avoid eternal punishment?

Do You Know Jesus?

Feeling burdened by life's challenges? The crucial question - do you know Jesus? Understanding God's plan and the church's role, as depicted in Acts Chapter 8, is part of knowing Him. So is baptism, like the Ethiopian eunuch's story, a God-given command to save us from sins. Become familiar with Jesus, obey Him, become a Christian, and experience the joy of becoming a part of the Lord's body.

The Value of a Good Father

A prevalent issue observed by educators, counselors, and ministers is the absence of fathers at home, leading to problems among children. This deficiency disrupts God's original design of a home, as described in Genesis 2, which includes both a father and a mother. Tampering with this design results in a flawed system impacting not only the home but also the church and society. Fathers, their presence and role are crucial for a balanced home and society.

The New Testament book of Philemon displays equality through Christ, transcending racial differences. The Gospel brings masters and slaves together as equals. The Gospel of Christ is the sole foundation of equality. Atheistic evolution does not teach equality, yet it is being taught in our schools, which is why America is having trouble. God created us equal with a longing to be free indeed.
