Choose to do things God's way

Choose, on this day, who you will serve. Choose to become who God is through Jesus Christ. Many are called but few are chosen. God has lain before man life, death, blessings and curses. It is our choice to listen to and obey God's word. We choose to be chosen through our obedience and willingness to do what the Father tells us to do.

Get a new attitude for the new year

For many of us, this past year has been a struggle. We've struggled to keep our families together, we've struggled to pay our bills and we've struggled to find happiness in the middle of our storms. But as we grow from day to day, we understand that our struggles are simply a part of our living, and your attitude about the situation is what allows you to see the silver lining that surrounds every cloudy moment in life.

Life can be ultimate carnival ride

If you are a fan either of the Bulldogs or the Yellow Jackets, you rode that coaster hard last Saturday. In all of my years of watching football (or any other sport), I do not remember a time when a game has swung back and forth like that.

Seek the crown, preach the gospel -- part 1

This command was given by our Lord prior to his ascension back into heaven. "And he said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.

No matter who or what the individual may be - king or beggar, rich or poor, educated or illiterate - the message of the Gospel is for all. It is by this message that man can learn what to do to obtain the grace God offers to all.
