Representing Jesus

Christians represent Jesus through a combination of verbally sharing the faith and loving in action. Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing” (John 14:12).

When God Gives Birth

The Holy Spirit is a powerful, creative person. He “brooded” over the formless void of the earth. In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit “overshadowed” Mary and conceived Jesus.

Using Malachi, John 14, and Galatians 5, Pastor Ray asked the question have you made an acceptable offering before the Lord, where you have divorced your sin and have been crucified with Christ or have you offered a profane offering before the Lord? That's only a question you can prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit. May...

With Jesus It Is ALL Personal

Although we must make that voluntary choice to either be a saint by the blood of Jesus as we are crucified with Christ or a sinner, only Jesus can remove the sin from our heart or the heart of another. We must ever continually be “poor in Spirit” (see Matthew 5:3) with our utter inability...
