Follow-Through
Repentance isn’t fashionable these days. Many people want the blessing of having their sins forgiven without turning from their sins. But faith in Jesus involves a change of mind about our sins and a renunciation of them. Faith and repentance cannot be separated.
Much so-called repentance is telling God we will change if He will get us out of a tight spot. But its insignificance comes to light when pressure is off.

Keep It Under Control!! A Blog by Deacon Bruce McElrath

Keep it under control !!!
What you say and what you don’t say are both important. To use proper speech you must not only say the right words at the right time but also not say what you shouldn’t.
Examples of an untamed tongue include gossiping, putting others down, bragging manipulating, and false teaching, exaggerating, complaining, flattering, and lying. Before you speak, ask, is what I want to say true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?

Deacon Bruce McElrath's Blogs-We Are Rich & Faith and Endurance

We Are Rich
Because money represents power, authority and success, often it is difficult for wealthy people to realize their need and their powerlessness to save themselves.

Jesus surprised some of His hearers by offering salvation to the poor; He may surprise some people today by offering it to the rich.

Deacon Bruce McElrath's Blog-Living as Children of Light

Living as Children of Light
People should be able to see a difference between Christians and non-Christians because of the way Christians live. We are to live full of life (Ephesians 5:8). We are to leave behind the old life of sin, since we are followers of Jesus.
Living the Christian life is a process. Although we have a new nature, we don’t automatically think all good thoughts and express all right attitudes when we become new people in Jesus. But if we keep listening to God, we will be changing all the time.

There are many inspirational and reflective statements in our bible.

Let’s attempt to interpret two informative proclamations that have been given to us.

To “submit to the yoke” means to willingly come under God’s discipline and learn

what He wants to teach. This involves several important factors: (1) silent reflection

on what God wants, (2) repentant humility, (3) self-control in the face of adversity,

UNITY THROUGH HUMILTY

Unity through Humilty
My sisters and brothers many people – even Christians – live only to make a good impression on others or to please themselves. But selfishness brings discord.
When we work together, caring for the problems of others as if they were our problems, we demonstrate Jesus’ example of putting others first, and we experience unity. Don’t be so concerned about making a good impression or meeting your own needs that you strain relationships in God’s family.
