Tomorrow being Sunday, my prayer is that more preachers will preach the Word, for God’s sake!!! People need salvation, not programs!!! We need to Hear from God!!!
Recently . . . a pastor shared with me that he now had less than twenty minutes to preach on Sunday morning because more time was needed for “worship.” He said the music portion of the service was expanding, and now that a drama skit was being included each week something had to be cut. They had mailed out a survey to the church membership. The question was: Which would you prefer: (1) Add fifteen minutes to the length of the service? (2) decrease the “worship” time? (3) shorten the sermon? The majority chose to have a shorter sermon.
As we analyze this, several things surface. First of all, this is not a unique situation for a pastor in America. It is, rather, a picture of church today, both from the standpoint of the leadership and of the people. The people want to be entertained, and the church…

Know who you are in Christ! We are overcomers; we have the victory! The title of this post says it all- “God Tells Us Who We Are- Powerful Bible Verses to Encourage and Conquer”!
We are a child of God . . . Romans 8:16 tells us that God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who He is, and we know who we are. He is our Father and we are His children. We have been saved, and had nothing to do with it. Ephesians 2:7-8 tells us that saving us was all His idea, and all His work. All we do is trust him enough to let Him do it. It was His gift from start to finish! We didn’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we didn’t save ourselves. God does all the saving.
We are freed from oppression . . . Psalms 107:2 says, Oh, thank God—He’s so good! His love never runs out. All of you set free by God, tell…

Protect yourselves from the wolves in sheep clothing- learn the truth from the Word of God for yourselves so you won’t be deceived!
The ONLY way to deal with deception is TO LEARN THE TRUTH FROM GOD’S WORD!
The writer of this post says, ” Freedom from spiritual conflicts and bondage is not a power encounter; it’s a truth encounter. Satan is a deceiver, and he will work undercover at all costs. But the truth of God’s Word exposes him and his lie.”
Excellent Post! Unity has to be understood on God’s terms and from His Word. It does not ever mean Political Correctness and Compromise!
Eureka is a TV show currently being shown on the SyFy channel. It’s unique plot line has made it my favorite show currently being aired. http://www.syfy.com/eureka/index.php I would recommend it for all ages, it is an entertaining, and educational, family oriented show. The show is about a city that was created by the US government to house all of the greatest thinkers of the day. You have rocket scientists, brain surgeons, quantum physicists, all the best minds inhabiting one city. You would think if there was one city that had all its problems handled it would be this one. Because it is filled with geniuses, they should be able to handle any problem that comes their way. The interesting thing is this… they actually create their own problems. Many times, an individual scientist goes “rogue” and botches up an experiment that causes problems for the entire city.
