If you were to approach the Bible like we approach Jesus think how alive it would become to you.  "In Him (The Word) was life" John 1:4.  The words of the pages of this book can be alive to us.

Old Ways bring New Days

Instead you thrill to God's Word, you chew on Scripture day and night. You're a tree replanted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, Never dropping a leaf, always in blossom.  Psalm 1:2,3 The Message To be consistent is to be a rock. Consistent use of your gift will cause you to shine. A consistent character will cause you to be strong. Consistency is getting up at a routine time. Eating 3 meals each day. Going to work early on a regular basis. Making those client calls each morning. Being around the people who need you and who build your world. Praying and reading the bible as a routine not just as an inspiration. Going to Church regularly not just when you feel you 'need it'. Paying your bills at the start of the month, not 'if I have something left over'. If you wa

Authority in Christ

God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.  Ephesians 1:22 You and I live with the incredible benefit of all things being placed under Christ's authority.  In other words we also have authority.  Knowing what you have in Christ is essential to fulfilling what He asks you to do.  Knowing you have authority and exercising it will multiply your effectiveness in every area of life. AUTHORITY OVER THE DEVIL Jesus said 'Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.' Luke 10:19 AUTHORITY OVER SICKNESS By whose stripes you were healed  1 Peter 2:24 AUTHORITY OVER ALL THINGS You have made him (man) to have dominion ov
