The Church That Cares For Your Soul

Desiring to Be a Servant

Matthew 20:20.  Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

Lawless Rules the Land

Habakkuk 1:3-4 Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention. Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth. Lawless Rules…

Finding the Good in Any Situation

Proverbs 17:20 He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.

A Peaceful Life

James 3:16-18 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them…

Choices

Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen. Psalms 78:70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: Deuteronomy 7:7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:…
