Children, Obey Your Parents

Honor thy father and thy mother and you will be blessed. Picking one over the other to obey was never what God intended.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

Rebellious Children

Children need to learn to love and honor both of their parents equally. This is God’s commandment for all kids in the faith.

Ephesians 2:8-10

Ephesians 2:8-10 (KJV)
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

There is only one way we can win the battle against temptation. It is through the armor of God in our lives.

You are either saved and there are fruits to show for it, or else you are unsaved and no fruits from God can be seen in your life.

Why I Forgive

Forgiving one another as God forgives us comes easier when we allow God to remove all the anger and bitterness from our hearts.

Halloween Is The Day Of The Devil

Do not celebrate Halloween. It is of the devil. Stay in the light of Jesus and don’t allow the darkness to seep into your lives.

False Grace

Make sure that your faith is alive in Christ. Otherwise, sin may be abounding in You. Repent if you have strayed from following Jesus.
