If I knew NOW what I will know THEN…

Palm Sunday is a time of celebration and rejoicing. It is the prelude to the greatest event in history—a time when Jesus liberates those who obey Him. Sin is temporal and only lasts for a short season, and Heaven is eternal. An eternal life with Jesus wins hands down in comparison to a life of […]

The Church in Plain Sight

It’s easy to overlook things sometimes, especially when they’re right in front of our eyes. We can forget how valuable something is and take it for granted. We are a chosen people, set apart and chosen for God’s kingdom. We are the Church and the obviousness that we are the Temple of the Holy Ghost […]

Jesus’ invitation leads to a real life of liberty and not one of misery. A life of misery is a life of selfishness and […]

How God’s Anointing Works

God spoke to Moses through a burning bush because God had a plan and He wanted to use him. Likewise, today God has a plan and He wants to use each of us. His anointing is upon us because we have the same anointing Jesus had. Therefore, all of us must learn the voice of […]
