Angels at Your Service

Angels at Your Service

When you think about the ministry of angels, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Most people see them as our guardians, saving us from potential danger and even death; however, angelic ministry does not need to be relegated to the occasional salvation from...

Understanding the Gift of Faith

Understanding the Gift of Faith

A lady once said to me, “If God gives me faith, then I’ll have it. If He doesn’t, I won’t.” That may sound like a good theory, but that isn’t a correct view of faith. “But, Pastor Lynne, it says in 1 Corinthians chapter 12 that God gives certain people faith!” Yes,...

Whole Armor of God

I am thankful for the anchor of truth God’s Word provides. Man’s opinion will constantly sway, but God’s Word will last forever. Not everyone knows, though, how to distinguish between personal opinion and the truth of God’s Word. That’s why deception is running...

God Is in the Rescue Business

God Is in the Rescue Business

Rescuing people is part of God’s nature. From the moment Adam sinned, God’s nature kicked in and He initiated a plan to rescue humanity from eternal separation to the life and blessing of God. Paul explains this truth in Colossians 1:13–14. [God] hath delivered us...

The Perfect Pattern

The Perfect Pattern

Everywhere you look, you will find patterns. Patterns shape our lives and carry the power to produce something positive or negative depending upon the nature of the pattern. Consider how a consistent pattern of exercise will result in a healthier body; a pattern of...

The Worry Cure

The Worry Cure

by Mac Hammond Down through the years, I have seen many Christians who feel they need to “help God” accomplish His plan and purpose in their lives. They think if they’re not doing all the right things then God’s plan for their lives might be delayed and possibly...

Not Just an Opportunity

Not Just an Opportunity

Truly, God has given us a wonderful part to play in His divine plan. By promising to answer our prayers, He has made it possible for us to become agents of His will on the earth. He’s given us the privilege of making supernatural...
