Daily Devotional: Love -vs- Sex

 
 
Love Love Love Love So Lovely...

There's more to sex than mere skin on skin.
Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact.
As written in Scripture, "The two become one."
Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master,
we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment
and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever—
the kind of sex that can never "become one."
 
There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others.
In sexual sin we violate the sacredness

Daily Devotional: A Higher Love

 

 

 But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced  the Sadducees, 
  they gathered themselves together. One of them, a lawyer, 
  asked Him a question, testing Him,
 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?"
  And He said to him, " 
 
'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, 
AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.'
 
 
 "This is the great and foremost commandment.
 "The second is like it, 
 
   'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'

Jesus said, "I tell you most solemnly that anyone who chooses a life of sin is trapped in a dead-end life and is, in fact, a slave. A slave is a transient, who can't come and go at will. The Son, though, has an established position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through.      -John 8:34-36



  As un-believers we were all the slaves of sin...but Thank God there is Freedom through Jesus Christ!  Jesus said who ever He sets Free is Free Indeed. Tha

...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.   -Psalm 30:5



We all cry sometimes (if we are honest) We all have moments in our lives that seem dark and stormy, but like the faithful sunrise, morning comes and the Joy of The Lord strengthens and picks us up, sometimes to the point that we even forget what we were weeping about. God is always faithful and His Joy is our strength. When the storms come, don't fret just hold on and look to the horizon cause joy is coming in

In this age modern technology, more and more gadgets are being created to occupy our time. Need to waste time...there's an app for that.

Seriously, we are constantly being bombarded by attacks from WMD's Weapons of Mass Distraction. Now more than ever it is of most importance to have some time set aside where you turn off all the noise and listen to what God has to say.

Today's Challenge: Spend some quiet time with the Father. Tune everything else out, and listen for that soft still voice of

You are unique, one of a kind, really you are! What happens when you look to others to find out how to act or even what to do? Disappointment and frustrated. We were not made to copy other people's lives. God created each one of us different, with different talents, abilities, and gifts. You may admire someone else's gifts, but if you try and copy what they are doing you will end up very frustrated. We can never do exactly what someone else does. If we look to another person

Creating a Biblical Marriage

by Jacquelyn Horne

 

"And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Genesis 2:23-24 (KJV)

This is one of the most powerful scriptures concerning marriage, but most of us don't read any depth into it. We skim over it, agree with it and move on without really "getting" it.

Most of us move into a marria

Casting the Devil From Our Lives

It was around 11:00 PM. This was back during the time when I lived with my grandmother and Debbie was just a dream of mine. I had mentioned before the incident in which I had been awakened by a heavy weight laying on top of me. This was the same type of feeling only it wasn't a weight and I was wide awake, reading in my room. The room was filled with the presence of evil though I could see nothing. I knew that an evil spirit had entered my bedroom. The temptation to be afraid wa

SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESSFUL WOMEN

1. In everything you do, always put GOD first.

Many of us have a habit of putting other people first or putting ourselves before anyone or anything. This is what we are taught to do, but it is incorrect and it is damaging. Eloihim must always come first. Everything you do, whether at home or the workplace you must do for him. He comes before your spouse, your boss, your children, your customers. If you put GOD first, all

The Behavior of Women

 

Titus 2:3-5 teaches us how women, both younger and older, should act. And to be honest it is in direct contrast of we see in the home, workplace, classroom and community today. First lets discuss our older women. Older women are to be reverent and pure. They are to be set apart for the world in thought and behavior. They should only move and speak in the spirit of holiness and be focuses on sacred things. Older women should be pious

The Black woman in America is in bondage and we allow Satan to keep her that way. African Americans will not rise until the Black woman is brought back to life. After the Civil War the chains came off but today we still are not free. No our wrist and ankles are not chained but our minds are. To the men reading this, we must learn to show our women, our sisters, our mothers the proper respect. God created man to be the stewards over all creation. To show disrespect to the gift

Jesus Christ called, and now that we're Believers are we trying to install a relationship with Him but don't feel we're making progress? If so, maybe it's because our basic relationship with Him is already there, and we're trying to institute something He's already established. A relationship with Jesus Christ is foundational for Believers, but it doesn't emanate from us; it began with an empty tomb.

The price for sin is death, but, in our place, a sinless Jesus paid that debt w

If a person is rich, gifted, talented, educated, privileged, clever, successful, in a high position, artistic and even good looking; whatever the case may be, that person should not lose touch with his or her human frailty. (Gal.6:1)

Ultimately the glory of all these attributes should be in the humility of those that possess them; 1 We should not trust in them. They are like paper Mache dolls that fall apart when handled. All these attributes, gifts and talents are like candy flo

Do you suffer from feelings of inferiority and insecurity? A lack of self-esteem can prevent you from living a fulfilling life and accomplishing your God-given destiny. Fear is at the root of low self-esteem. It is a tool used by the devil to stop you from being effective as a Christian and it manifests as depression, confusion, indecisiveness and lack of faith. Low self-esteem comes as a result of focusing on the wrong thing. If you choose to focus on negative circumstances-t

Why We Suffer?

by Stephanie Reck

 

Use suffering to build your character. Don't resent it or let it tear you down. When we suffer, if we faithfully represent Christ, our message and example affect others for good. Our inner attitudes do not have to reflect our outward circumstances. It is easy to get discouraged about unpleasant circumstances or to take unimportant events to seriously. Some people think that troubles are always caused by sin or lack in faith, trails may be a part of God's plan for believers. Ex
