    Once And For All

    The Bite   And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him. Hebrews 9:27-28 (NLT) In the old testament, there was animal sacrifice to cleanse sin. However, when Christ offered himself to God, he would cleanse us once and for all. Christ died to us free and we don’t have to bring a sacrifice. We just to bring ourselves. The Scriptures states…

    Commit Your Thoughts

    The Bite   Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established. Proverb 16:3 NKJV The Lord knows people’s thoughts; he knows they are worthless!

    Faith+Power+Will=Mountain Movement

    The Bite   Matthew 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” The disciples had just tried to heal a demon-possessed boy but they failed. They began to question as to why they couldn’t complete the casting of the demons. Jesus tells them the reason: It was a Faith issue! He told them they didn’t have enough faith. He told they needed mustard seed faith. A mustard seed is one of the smallest seed.…

    Learn to Love and Give Discipline

    The Bite Proverbs 12:1 NLT To learn, you must love discipline; it is stupid to hate correction.

    Watch Your Company

      The Bite 1 Corinthians 15:33-34 (NLT) Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.”  Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all.   Who do you spend most of your time with? In the verses before our bite, Paul is talking about living hour to hour or those who live like there is no resurrection.  But the resurrection is the only reason we have a tomorrow. In this generation, we see people turning up and partying like it’s no tomorrow. The reality is: What if today…
