Christ’s Yoke becomes EASY and His Burden becomes LIGHT for us to carry when we wholeheartedly accept that men AND women are the Lord’s co-laborers in the Kingdom of God, as well as when we volunteer to help fellow workers of both genders minister to others. Our acceptance and assistance not only are reflective of the love we have for one another but also are reflective of the love we have for our Savior and our Father.
The evil Jezebel Spirit will stir up wickedness and apostasy with her “adorned” unholy beliefs and worldly wisdom. Enticement is the aim of the Jezebel Spirit, for it seeks to seduce faithful, obedient, service-oriented, Agápe loving, spiritual laborers into a marriage with her secular systems with their gods. RESIST through the power and authority the Holy Spirit gives.
I am sure that all parents expect their children to outlive them. I know I expected that, but God had a different plan for my oldest son. He just turned forty-five on Sunday, April 30th. On Tuesday evening, May 2nd, he went home to be with the Lord.

My latest book of poetry—My Spirit’s Musings—reveals why reflecting God’s Image is the best way for believers in Christ to demonstrate their genuine Christlikeness. For sure, through many Scriptures, God daily calls us to Christlikeness.
We take so many God-given blessings for granted, but being blessed to live another day should never be one of them. For sure, we should thank God for every new day He blesses us to see, and even more so when that new day is another born day that He allows us to celebrate. Thank You, God!
As saints our reach should always exceed our grasp; that is, we should aim to achieve the very works we sometimes think are impossible to accomplish—like continually producing the kind of treasures we can lay up for ourselves in Heaven (e.g., gold, silver, and precious gemstone—useful works). Living a consistent saintly life is the best way to avoid producing incinerable works (e.g., hay, wood, and stray—useless works).
