Devouring Wolves dressed in Sheep’s Clothing

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

Matthew 7.15-16: Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves. You will fully recognize them by their fruits. We can’t forget that the devil comes as an angel of light to deceive (2 Cor 11.14), and can perform miracles (Rev 16.14). How do we prevent religious deception? LINE ALL TEACHINGS UP WITH THE WORD OF GOD (1 John 4.1; 1 Th 5.21), and get your theology from the Word of God…

The “Eve” syndrome. How often I see this destroyer of gratefulness manifesting itself in my life.   What IS the “Eve” syndrome in my marriage and how do I get rid of it? Eve failed to appreciate not only all the trees in the garden she had access to, but even the garden itself! Eve was in the midst of a garden whose translation means fruitful, well-watered, pleasure. She had access to “all kinds of trees” which were “pleasing to the…

What is Worship?

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

Worship is the result of a transparency and intimacy with God that comes as a result of knowing who you are to Him and who He is to you. Just like any relationship, the quality of intimacy will depend on how much you are known and really know that person.  The most significant scripture on worship is when Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4:23-24:  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers…

Friendship and Hospitality

By | Marriage | No Comments

Friendships There are different levels of friendships. Define: acquaintance, casual friendship, close friendship (mutuality), and intimate friendship. 2. There are different seasons of friendships.

So be ready for not only others to stumble but even we can unintentionally stumble too! Some things to remember: 1.     Be kind and gracious. Give the benefit of a doubt….

Someone cares…

By | Marriage | No Comments

I love this quote from “Beverly Clark” (Susan Sarandon) in “Shall We Dance?” “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it….
