Fear Nothing

Unlike most of us, Jesus didn’t suffer from fear, doubt, anxiety and depression. In fact, He told us over and over, “Fear nothing!” I believe he was fearless for 4 reasons: 1) He had an intimate relationship with His Father, God, 2) He knew He was the Son of God, 3) Through prayer, He knew…

The Simple Key To Life

Life can appear so complex that we often overlook the obvious!  God gave us His simple key to life when He said, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need..”(Matt 6:33 NLT).  In other words, if we put Him first, everything else in our lives…
