Jesus said in Matthew 6:25-27, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or

important than clothes? Look at the...

Blessing Others Through Confessing The Word?
As usual yesterday was a powerful day at our church, Victory Christian Center. I preached a powerful
message on how what we confess with our mouth determines our victory or defeat. So many people,
even those claiming to be Christians, daily make negative confessions. They complain and speak words
of discouragement and their lives follow their confessions into...

A Godly Woman

Posted Jan 11th 2010, 11:10 by E-Meditations on Christian Living


I've started a new series of sermons at Victory Christian Center. I'm preaching on what it means to be a Godly woman and a Godly man. I strive to be a Godly man because I desire to please the LORD and because being a Godly man blesses those around me. I also strive to be a Godly man because I'm married to a Godly woman. She deserves the best from a Godly man.
My wife Sheri is an outstanding...

Out With The Old, In With The New
With the new year approaching tomorrow, all of us should rejoice that God has been so good to us! What a joy it is to look forward to another new year, a year full of Godly victories and successes.
A few months ago I had to insulate one of our buildings. The attic was full of years of accumulated things. Nothing of any value, but things that were essential years ago, but no longer...

The Pinnacle Of The Christian Walk

Posted Dec 28th 2009, 10:12 by E-Meditations on Christian Living


The Pinnacle of Our Christian Walk
The pinnacle of the Christian experience is not achieving some high position or status in a church nor is it being a popular speaker or a singer of great demand. It is not even performing great Christian work. The high point of our Christian walk is a complete dying of the old man and making Jesus LORD of every aspect of our life.
Dying to our old self is not an easy death. We would...

Becoming A Good Person: Part 6

Posted Dec 9th 2009, 12:29 by E-Meditations on Christian Living


Becoming A Good Person: Part 6
In the last teaching I shared Scriptures that mandate that we love our enemies and that we are commanded to be good even to those who are wicked or ungrateful. With that established, I'd like to go back to how we are to love our friends, family and church family.
The Bible has much to say about family relationships. We are commanded to honor our parents, not exasperate or frustrate our children and obey...

Becoming A Good Person: Part 5
In the heart of a true, authentic Christ follower, there is no place or room for cynicism, sarcasm or scorn. Yet, these are often heard within the conversations of most Christians. If you were raised by someone who was very sarcastic, cynical or scornful, you may be the same way and not even know it. These three bad traits are hurtful, unkind and do not show Christian love.
Sarcasm is a form of...

Becoming A Good Person: Part 4

Posted Dec 3rd 2009, 12:20 by E-Meditations on Christian Living


Becoming A Good Person: Part 4
It is much easier for most church goers to be religious than it is to be good and moral. Usually being religious means doing church work, not being holy or led by the Spirit. When we equate being a good person to our participation in church activity, we deceive ourselves into believing that we are good people.
We read about people like this in the Bible. Jesus said to them, ""Woe to you,...
