1 Timothy 1:12 (KJV)

1 Timothy 1:12 states, “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.”  The definition of Christian ministry is "an activity carried out by Christians to express or spread their faith, the prototype being the Great Commission."  The origin of the word “ministry” comes from the Greek word 'to serve'. 

We are blessed and privileged to be used for the ministry of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  This task can sometimes seem overwhelming, but it brings such an encouragement to know that the Creator of this universe has counted me faithful for His ministry. It inspires me to do more for the ministry and remain faithful!

I would like to encourage everyone that is on the gospel highway to remain faithful to Jesus Christ and to the ministry. If you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior, I encourage you to examine yourself and seek a life of conversion and sanctification. He invites everyone to be a part of this ministry and everyone is needed.

Love & Prayers

Why Do We Sing?

In Colossians 3:16 we read, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

Hebrews 12:2 states, "I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee."

To be able to express ourselves in song in a blessing from God.  Not just beautiful melody and harmony, but a heartfelt expression lifted up to Him. The scriptures admonish us to sing “Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19).  Additionally, we are admonished to “sing with the spirit…and with the understanding also” (II Corinthians 14:15). Other creatures of God’s universe have their own unique sound, but it is human beings that are able to express their deepest convictions and faith with a song.

We worship God because He has changed our lives.  We offer praise to Him for His loving kindness toward us. The Bible says to “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing” (Psalms 100:1-2).  Making a joyful noise with gladness and singing is a means to worship God.

Singing a hymn is an expression of the soul and a reflection of our convictions and, most likely, of the condition of our spiritual life.  We can praise God wherever we are because a song can always be in the spirit.   Songs can convey our sincere emotions like nothing else can. They can inspire, motivate, and encourage us. Hymns should honor the providence of God, the birth, life, death, and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ, and the power of His Holy Spirit in the world.

Psalm 90:12 (KJV)

Psalm 90:12 states, "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

"Let us deeply consider our own frailty, and the shortness and uncertainty of life, that we may live for eternity, acquaint ourselves with the Spiritual life that God has prepared for us, and be at peace; that we may die in favor and live and reign with God eternally." Adam Clarke

Eternal Life

The Bible teaches that man has a two dimensional existence. One dimension is a natural body that is capable of carrying out an earthly existence. This natural body has a finite existence and will return to the dust of the earth.  The second and invisible dimension of man is the soul.  This soul will live forever. The eternal destination of our soul is completely determined by our faith and conduct on this earth. 

1 Corinthians 15:44 says, "It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body."

James 4:14 states, "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."

In 1 John 5:11-13 we read, "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
