Lose Your Life And Save It

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. (Mark 8:35) We diligently involve ourselves in all sorts of programs to retain our health, wellbeing and ultimately our life.  We do all we can to extend our life here on this earth.  Exercise.  Eating Right.  Consistent Doctor Visits.  Taking Vitamins. ... 

I Can’t Keep It To Myself

And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. (Mark 8:30) Jesus commanded the disciples not to tell anyone about Him.  This is very strange.  Some theologians feel that it is because they did not totally understand the role of the Messiah.  Some feel that it is because the disciples needed to know what would happen to Him concerning His death.  Yet others feel that it is because He felt...

Worldly Worries And Wealth Vs The Word

And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (Mark 4:19) Do you feel a rope wrapped around your mind?  Do you feel yourself being choked?  The world seeks to choke God’s Word from us daily.  Satan uses our own desires to choke God’s word from us.  If we claim that the desires...

When Jesus heard it,  He said to them,  “Those who are well have no need of a physician,  but those who are sick.  I did not come to call the righteous,  but sinners,  to repentance.” (Mark 2:17 NKJV) Some times we as Christians are too busy calling Church folks from one Church to another Church.  (Witnessing to those who are already saved.)  We lose sight of what we have been commissioned...
