Luke 24:45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. Until God opens our minds we don’t understand the scriptures. Thankfully He has revealed himself to us. Scripture is just a bunch of words and sentences with no deep personal meaning until… God opens our mind. Let us pray he continues to […]
Deacon Scott Reynolds Title: Where is God presence? God has a lot of attributes that we do and sometimes don’t understand, such as his wisdom, knowledge, invisibility, mercy, righteousness, wrath, and his sovereignty.

The Life and Time of Job
When God allowed Job to be pestered by Satan, all of the people in his life that remained suggested that Job “curse God and die.” But throughout all of his suffering, he remained faithful, righteous, and in a state of worship and praise to God. Are we the type of people that curse God when we lose someone we love, our possessions, or any other trial and tribulation that comes our way? What are you putting before God?
Three things that we can do to increase our ability to praise God:
1) Pray without ceasing- John 18:1, Matthew 6:5. The Lord’s prayer is an outline of a proper way to pray.
2) Read the Word of God- Matthew 3:16, All scripture is God-breathed. If you want to know how to live your life in a way that is pleasing to God, read your Bible!!!
3) Remain in a state of worship, praise, and thankfulness.
4) Go to church. It’s important to be around like-minded people! We can learn so much from other Christians and the fellowship we have together. It’s also important that we go somewhere where we are able to get encouragement when times get tough and church is a great way to get it.
God wants us to be thankful! God is pleased with praise and thanksgiving, whether it be through song or prayer or living a righteous life to His Glory. Continual praise is a vital part of being a Christian and if we truly want to please God, we praise Him with unconditional praise. Brother Roy expounds…
In order to be like Christ, we have to know and study Christ. The only way to do this is to read, study, and learn about Him through the Holy Bible! Rather than getting caught-up in worldly things, submerge and engulfed with Christ! If you want to be like someone, be like Him! Brother Roy Moreau brings the Word.
