Letting Go of Man-Made Rules

God is the Answer

Weigh Down is about being committed to God ruling and you letting go of control. If you really mean it, then you do not know where you are going to be today and tomorrow and the next day.

Building True Relationships

This Christmas, did you give gifts to people you are close to? How did you build those relationships? Just giving a gift at Christmas does not do it. The true gift of heartfelt LOVE is what builds relationships, and to offer this to others, you must start with a relationship with God FIRST!

Come…Let Us Worship Him!

Merry Christmas! Praise God for today! Whom, or what, have you come to worship on this day? Do you adore the praise of family members or other people? Then you have missed the mark.

The Greatest Pursuit

There is faith in God and there is hope for God, but I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that the greatest pursuit of all things, the superior way, the most excellent way—not for praise of man, not heart-less, philanthropic deeds done nor “deeds” inspired by satan—but the most excellent way is True Love with good words and deeds inspired by God with the right motives, which is love for God and His Kingdom of Love. True Love will never fail. Why...
