Attitude of the Righteous

Our ministry is to reach out to the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to help believers be equipped with a solid knowledge of the Word of God, the Bible, and be encouraged to apply it in every aspect of their daily lives. There are simple truths for these complex times to help people live in a way that brings real spiritual victory to them and more importantly, through the Lord Jesus Christ, glory to God our Father.
1 Peter 4:12-14
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.

Today's News

Mark will be joining Alice and I when he finishes work today for a study and discussion. The topic will be centered on my military experience flying as an aircrewman in the U.S. Navy back in the early and mid 1960's. In particular on what was called an O.R.I., an Operational Readiness Inspection.

As the reality and severity of the Covid-19 pandemic was becoming understood over a year ago Alice and I were just leaving on a two week trip to visit a number of places where I had ministered in the past. We went on that trip by ship and were unable to actually enter any of those destination countries due to the lock-downs being initiated everywhere.

Now, I think this may be an O.R.I. to see if we are prepared for what is yet to come!

"Thus says the LORD, 'Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. ... Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD.'"   (Jeremiah 17:5,7)


The Sermon on the Mount - Part 14
Getting to the heart of the matter. The life of things that are conceived in the heart. This study takes a hard look at the fact that our actions, both good and bad, are born out of what is conceived in our hearts! So we pray as David did, 'Create in me a clean heart, Oh God'!

Pay Close Attention
We all need to listen closely and heed what the Lord says to us. Our lives depend on it! His words are the words of eternal life as the apostles said, and we place ourselves at risk if they do not guide our beliefs and our actions.
