Praise

main image
Praise is a poet's rhapsody, full of admiration for a guardian whose reckless love has saved their life/soul.
 
A symphony of voices singing Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord
 
Praise is a young child's prayer thanking the Lord at night before bed
It is the twirls and jumps of dancers and the bold expressions of mimes telling the story of deliverance
 
Praise is the joining of a congregation coming to celebrate their blessings and the release from tribulations
 
Praise is extending a hand to a sister in Christ pulling her out of her stupor, It's giving your brother the strength to carry on
To push forward and don't give up 
 
Praise is spreading love to those who are considered undesirable
 
Praise is calling out to God even when things are rough because while I breathe , I hope 
 
And I as long as I have breath in my body, I will glorify him in every way I can.
 
Declaring him the One and Only ruler of My Soul 
 
Because as Psalms 71:8 says:"My mouth is filled with your praise,
declaring your splendor all day long".

Bible Study for Busy Pastor’s and Ministers

main image

An exert from the book:

Pastors and ministers have one of the most challenging jobs on earth. Of all their tasks, one responsibility they cannot neglect is teaching the word of God. Unfortunately, church leaders seldom have enough time to prepare Bible studies for their congregations. This book is a quick resource to help fill the gap. These thematically arranged Bible studies each contain an introduction to a topic and a list of relevant Scripture readings for that topic. Pastors can use the introduction to spark discussion within small groups or to focus on the specific themes during sermon writing. Many have stated that Volume 1 is a great resource, and it is my prayer that Volume 2 is a great resource as well. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, . . . teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt 28:19–20).

God’s Blessings Upon You,
Pastor Davis

The Bright and Morning Star

main image

As we draw closer to the day in which we celebrate God's greatest gift to the world, let's reflect on the true reason for the season, Jesus the Christ. Jesus is our Bright and Morning Star. He is the Star of the entire creation and redemption process.  No other Star is greater than Jesus Christ. Why?! Because “There is no salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”  Just as the wise men looked  up to a star to guide them to baby Jesus, we too need to look up and see our Bright and Morning Star sitting at the right hand of Power.  All we have to do is look up. Stars can only be seen by looking up.  Whatever we need in life, look up to the Bright and Morning Star as our guide, because wherever he guides he provides.

“After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.” Matthew 2;9-10 NIV
