Be prepared for Heaven

Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning, as though you were waiting for your master to return from the wedding feast.  Then you will be ready to open the door and let him in the moment he arrives and knocks. Luke 12:35-36 (NLT) Jesus is a friend, everything he says and does is […]

Put Faith into Action

What do you do when your back is to the wall; when your problems seem overwhelming and there are no answers in sight? A king in ancient Israel found himself in such a situation.
