Turn on the Light!

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”  Ephesians 5:8 (NKJV)  “Where’s the light?”  This is the panicky question young children ask their parents as they enter into a dark room.  They are concerned in knowing where the light can be found.  Similarly, “Where is […]

Living a Surrendered Life In Christ

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”  Matthew 16:24   (NKJ) “So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:33 Jesus in His teaching on the cost of discipleship […]
