None are Expendable!

Posted: 30th April 2017 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

God’s fingerprints are on all of His creation. Still, His word tells us that Man is His most prized creation, and I believe His greatest disappointment. (Genesis 6:6) His Word says He delights in us and if we love one another, we are His children. He loved us so much that He gave His only […]

Your imagination plays a critical role in determining your reaction when trouble comes. Paul says this, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (NIV, Philippians 4:8) Jesus said this “22 “The eye […]

It is very difficult for us to change a bad habit or poor attitude. We know ourselves so well that we become comfortable with ourselves. Comfortable with complacency. Comfortable in doing “just enough.” We avoid going the “extra mile” and any personal sacrifice because its disrupts our agenda of comfort. It makes us feel like […]

Before You Speak, Think TRUTH

Posted: 19th January 2017 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

Is it the TRUTH? Does it REVERE God? Is it UPLIFTING? Does it reflect THANKFULNESS? Is it HELPFUL? The words we speak reflect how Jesus influences and impacts our lives. He is the Way, the Truth an the Life. Speak words that show the Way (Love). Speak truth! Speak life!

Do you really love Jesus?

Posted: 5th December 2016 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

The greatest commandment is to love God with all you heart, soul, mind and strength. That’s pretty much everything that makes you — you! Of all the desires you have in this world, is Jesus the first and foremost. Do you love Him more than your spouse, your children, your friends, your home, your hobbies, […]

Many times, we as Christians try to battle with the Evil One unprepared and ill-equipped. The result of this battle only hurts ourselves and others. Sin’s nature is not self-destructive. Once committed it sets in motion a series of travesties that end in suffering and death. The only remedy that can stop the wake of […]

O’ to know the length, breadth , height, and depth of God’s love! It is infinite, not temporal. It can not be restrained by the confines of our concepts of time and space. God loves us more than the circumstances of the present and the accumulation of our limited lifetimes. God loves us eternally. He […]

Judging Others

Truth demands a real honest look at oneself. It measures weaknesses known only in the heart. It pours burning coals on our pride, digs up buried humility and calls us to repentance. The result of this inward revelation releases mercy and grace and leaves a trail that points to love. Judging and discernment can be […]

7 X 70

Posted: 27th August 2016 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

When Peter asked Christ about forgiving an offender, Jesus increased Peter’s quantifier for forgiving. 7 x 70 seems like a huge or an impossible number. However, every time we bring up a past offense our bitterness calculator adds up. Remember the worldly adage, “Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.” […]

Daughter of Dreams

Posted: 18th July 2016 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

The greatest thing in life is to know you are in the center of God’s will. God gives life to every child. He knows us in our mother’s womb. He knits us together, perfectly, marvelously — we are wonderfully made. No one living is a mistake! Too many times we stop our growth in love […]
