  • Endurance is a great quality normally found in the life of successful people. Successful athletes certainly possess this ability of sticking with a task until they achieve their goal. An athlete endures the physical hardships in order to win the victory.

    Life could be compared to a marathon race, which contains many twists and turns and can only be won by endurance, steadfastness and dependability. As you run the race of life, no matter the difficulties and the obstacles you face, remember he who endures to the end will be the real winner.

  • Mold and mildew are two fungi that may appear from time to time in your home. They can trigger allergic reactions or asthmatic complications for certain people, so prompt removal is critical to protect your family’s health.

    Both mold and mildew are types of fungi that grow in moist environments, spread easily and live on various surfaces. Mildew is a type of mold that usually has flat growth and remains on the surface. Mold contains multiple identical nuclei and grows in patches of various colors and can penetrate beneath the surface of an infected material.

  • A growing trend within the Christian culture is the abandonment of the local church. Fewer believers are committing to a local church as a member and most of them find reasons not to regularly attend. Recently, a study revealed that individuals who do not regularly attend church but claim to be believers state reasons such as:

    1. I need down time

    2. There are no good churches nearby

    3. The needs of my family are not met

    4. They feel that it is nothing but routine

  • Since we were young children, we have heard the story of Zacchaeus, the “wee little man,” who climbed up into the sycamore tree to see Jesus as He passed by. Zacchaeus was one of the interesting characters from the New Testament that had an encounter with Jesus during our Lord’s earthly ministry (Luke 19:1-10). When he climbed up into the tree to see Jesus, Zacchaeus was a wealthy and successful businessman, who held a powerful position in Roman-occupied Israel. For a man of his status his actions would be considered a bit “strange” today.

  • All of us face a common temptation to sin, especially in secret. Our particular temptations may be different, but our struggle with sin is real. God has a lot to say to help us as we struggle with secret sin.

    Romans 7:15 “For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.”

  • In Numbers 6:24-26 God spoke to Moses that Aaron was to pronounce a blessing upon the children of Israel.  We have heard this as a benediction by ministers in worship services.  “The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace.”
