Raising the temperature of water for one extra degree means the difference between something that is simply very hot and something that generates enough force to power a machine - this 'idea' is an uncomplicated metaphor that ideally should feed our every endeavor - consistently pushing us to make the extra effort in every task we undertake. It reminds us that seemingly small things can make a difference! What's your temperature for JESUS running at right now?

If you have kids - you might understand why some animals eat their young! Whether they are bawling - crawling - walking or talking - sometimes our kids have the capacity to send even the best parents over the edge! If you're a parent - thinking of becoming one - or even moved to the evil stage of 'grand-parenting' - God has some invaluable thoughts and guidelines to teach - prepare & fine-tune your abilities - in your short window of opportunity!
There's a PROBLEM today - a misunderstanding of what HOLINESS means! The inability to clearly know what it means to ABIDE with Christ! With all the distractions that our World has to offer - wouldn't you think it would be easier for a Follower of the Way to KNOW his chances for survival are greater WITH CHRIST as apart from Him! After all... APART FROM HIM - WE CAN DO NOTHING! (John 15:5b)
What ever happened to SIN? Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major SINS of our society that we have lost sight of the need to deal with our own SINS? Maybe it's time that we confront the SINS that we have comfortably begun to tolerate - those SINS that have slowly taken us HOSTAGE!
The Stakes are High - Everyone is a person of FAITH whether they attend church or even believe in God! Faith is trust and we are all trusting in something! We are all betting our life and our future on something! What are you betting on? Your life depends on it! Are you willing to go ALL IN...?
Romans 10:15... And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Mothers are teachers. Mothers are disciplinarians. Mothers are cleaning ladies. Some mothers are gardeners & mowers of lawns. Most mothers understand that baking cookies is more important than washing windows! Mothers are nurses - doctors - psychologists - counselors - chauffeurs & coaches! Mothers are developers of personalities - molders of vocabularies & shapers of attitudes. Mothers are soft voices saying... "I love you." And mothers are a link to God, a child’s first impression of God’s love!
SEX has long been a taboo conversation in most churches; but guess who came up with the idea of SEX in the first place? Is it possible that the one who invented SEX is actually pro-SEX and wants us to have fulfilling SEX lives? Is it possible that what we're experiencing is only a second rate imitation of what God hoped our SEX lives would be? Is it possible we've lost the original design and have settled for something else? The Bible tells us in Hebrews 13:4... "Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be UNDEFILED; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge." The term UNDEFILED can be defined as pure, free from stain or blemish... IMMACULATE! Could it be possible that God designed our SEX Lives to be IMMACULATE & beyond our wildest imaginations?
