The most admired Ministers are those who preach truth by using the scripture as the foundation for each sermon or message. A meaningful sermon needs scripture as its foundation and The Bible is our only reliable source on God, the life of Jesus, and the relationship and expectations for our lives. It is the guidebook for the journey we call life.
It is difficult to stay focused on scripture when you live in a world filled with pain and suffering. It is even more difficult to watch as benefactors who were blessed to live in America when she was great, have taken their attention off God. This inviting nation that once welcomed brilliance, diversity, the huddled masses. This nation that endured slavery, Jim Crow, women’s suffrage, and in spite of, became a unified nation.
Now, more than ever, there is a need for sermons and messages of meaning. Spreading the Good News and promoting God’s Kingdom while saving souls is what spirituality is all about. I hesitate to use religion or Christianity to define us, because labels will not matter on the day Jesus returns to earth. What matters most is do you believe, and was your life spent following the teachings of Jesus Christ our Lord. If you can answer that question with a resounding YES, you have nothing to fear.
It is time to awaken from not caring. It is time to realize that the world is not yours, it belongs to our children. We owe them clean air, clean water, education, and healthcare. We owe ourselves peace until God calls us home.
THE HUMAN RACE
Why does race remain America’s deepest and most enduring divide? Simply because not everyone believes that God created all humans in His likeness. They do not believe that we are one race, the Human race. They do not believe that all humans are created equal. Those who believe, have no problem with differences.
The pretend believers are the problem. They call the name of Jesus Christ when it is convenient, or when it promotes their agenda. They have no more love for the Father than they have for those who are different. These are the people who have partnered with the devil and his trappings. They have no true connection to God and have not fully accepted Him into their hearts.
When you see these toxic people, you know they are un-Godly. Ignore their words and watch their actions, you will easily discern those who are operating in the light of goodness, or the dark of evil. Limit your time in their presence. When possible, avoid them and their negative speech. The strength of your protective spirit is only as strong as the food you feed it.
Scriptures, prayer, communing with the great spirit, maintains that fence of protection around you and yours. Today’s predators have taken on a more enticing form, they appear like sparkling gold. Once they conquer your soul.. the gold paves your path straight to hell.
