Be A Game Changer: We Encourage Women Wednesday

Hey ladies!! It’s Wednesday already???!!! I personally don’t know where time supposedly went but it seems as though we gained an hour, we lost time with the sweeping in of the cold and dark spaces as the sunlight begins to fade a tad earlier than we would choose. 

Today’s game-changing woman is Rahab. Let’s be real, we have heard of her at least once or twice by a preacher who was considered controversial because he/she addressed her sin in a voraciously blunt fashion/ They described her as a “h

Be A Game Changer: We Encourage Women Wednesday

Be A Game Changer: Hannah

1:09 pm, Wednesday, October 21, 2020

 

Hey everybody, It’s a new week and I hope all is well. I am back with another piece for the ladies. Last week, I told yall about Esther and how she had to lead fearlessly with her positioning, and in doing so, she changed the culture for her people in the land in which they were dwelling. She was definitely a game-changing lady!

 

Today we are going to examine the story of Hannah, Samuel’s mama. In brief, Hannah was one of the wive

Major league baseball celebrated Jackie Robinson Day on the day before Easter. It’s a fitting coincidence.

April 15th marked the seventieth anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s breaking the color line in major league baseball. Very few, if any, sporting events have ramifications that transcend the playing field, but this one did.

As George Will wrote on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of Robinson’s debut, “[Babe] Ruth reshaped baseball; Jackie Robinson’s life still reverberates through al

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers” (2 Tim. 4:3).

Have you ever asked yourself or quietly wondered why so many in the Western church today lack a strong devotion and dedication to God? Why are there so many professing Christians who still pursue the lusts an

Christian rapper Thi’sl, a St. Louis, Missouri, native, knows firsthand about the racial tensions that have plagued his city for decades. It is that same dark cloud of racial unrest that overshadows the recent police killing of an 18-year-old black man in nearby Ferguson. Calling for justice while trumpeting a peaceful response, Thi’sl also says it is time for the church to step up and face the fact that U.S. Christianity has its own fester

A popular rapper who admitted to being worshiped by fans and once claimed to have ‘found God’ and professedly ‘hopped to Christianity’ has released a profanity-laced video claiming that he has fallen away from the faith.

“If Hell is truly Your pit of fire and I get thrown in it, I’ma probably regret the fact that I ever wrote this [expletive],” Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known to fans as “Hopsin,” raps in a new song called Ill Mind of Hopsin 7. “I hopped to Christianity so strongly, then

Jesus told this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?

And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righ

8 Ways God Blesses Us

1 Corinthians 1:1-9 lists eight ways God blesses us through Christ.

About 1 Corinthians

Corinth was the major commercial center in the Roman Empire. The city was famous for its wealth and also for being filled with every kind of evil. It was home to twelve pagan temples, including the Temple of Aphrodite, which housed over one thousand prostitutes. The city was so wicked that the term “Corinthianize” was coined to describe someone who practiced sexual immorality.

It was a city many would desc

The third and fourth chapters of Exodus contain the account of Moses receiving the call of God to confront Pharaoh, and free the Israelites. And, while the Exodus account is known largely for the miracles which God performed, and the faithfulness of Moses to follow where the Lord led him, it also holds a lesson for all believers in answering the call to service instantly, and without hesitation.

In chapter three, God makes himself known to Moses, introducing his presence with th

"The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the house of the LORD, where the ark of God was." 1 Samuel 3:3
When the Lord called Samuel, he was in the House of the Lord and the Lamp of God was still burning. He was connected to God and was able to hear when called. How about you? Are you connected to God or are you out there where He cannot reach you? You can only be in the Lord's presence having being brought there by the Holy Spirit. Many times he wants to find you but

The Bible tells Christians to let their light shine out into the dark world around them. (Matthew 5:16 "In the same way, let your light shine before others") Jesus explained to His disciples that light was made to shine into all of the house and not be hidden. "Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:15. God's word teaches Christians to Stand up for Jesus before people, while

In the Bible, prayer is an integral part of the Old and New Testaments. In fact, the Bible's first reference to prayer is in Genesis, where the first book of the Bible says humankind called on (prayed to) the Lord. (4:26). Then, too, another reference to prayer is in Revelation, the final book of the Bible. (8:4) In addition, the 64 books between Genesis and Revelation refer to prayer, or a form of the word prayer, over 500 times. 

Therefore, for you as a believer, God's Word point

There is some wisdom in the old adage that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out, and remove all doubt. What this means, of course, is that keeping quiet is better than saying something foolish, and saying nothing at all is sometimes profound in its eloquence. This precept is found in Proverbs 17. There we read:

“Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; [When] he shuts his lips, [he is considered] perceptive.” – Proverbs 1

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

A. Love

LESSON 13 
CHRISTIAN HOME AND FAMILY

Dr George Watkins



As God is bringing restoration and order to the Household of God (the Church), we find that the home plays a vital part in this visitation. In the Old Testament, the family was the corporate body of worshippers with the father as the spiritual leader and authority (Joshua 24:15).


(1) HOW IS THE CHRISTIAN HOME ESTABLISHED?

A material house does not come together without a blueprint. As Christians, the bluepr

Self examination is an important part of the Christian life. The believer, being a child of God, should readily seek to know if our conduct, our conversation, our witness, our attitude, conform to the life of faith we are attempting to live. Keeping short accounts with Our Lord means contemplating the choices we make, the values we hold, the concerns and thoughts which hold us captive.
In the matter of thankfulness, we are all too often guilty of neglecting to discern the personal way in which
