Please Forgive Me!

Don't take God's kindness for weakness, as if He doesn't know your heart and hidden motives; as if punishment will not follow. You who continue to live in iniquity then pray to God hoping He will grant your wishes like a genie in a bottle, only so that you can forget about Him when you get what you want and return to your sin right before His eyes - Repent!

Just Be There

I attended my first daddy-daughter dance on Friday, February 23rd of this year. And as a song writer and music producer, there is a hard balance between being a husband, father, and Christian artist. For me, making music was always self taught, however, I didn’t have a Godly role model in the home to show me what a husband or father giving Christ-like love to his wife and children looks like - I needed this. Because when I became a husband and parent I did not understand my vital role in the family. I am still learning my role as a husband and father, but through Christ alone, and it all starts by just being there.

Why Are You So Angry?

My grandmother would always tell me, “Nerva, treat others the same way you want them to treat you (Luke 6:31).” For some reason I always found a ‘but’ knowing how much people or just living in this world can make one angry. Everyone gets angry sometimes. Consider Jesus (Matthew 21:12-13). The latter question is, how can I express this anger in positive ways to produce positive results? What’s the best way to release this tension, frustration, and pain? First, why are you so angry? Are you angry because you want something you can’t have right now? Maybe your child doesn’t listen to you, someone said something that hurt you, or you’re accused of being a person you aren’t or doing something you did not do. Are you tired of being pushed to the side, rejected, overlooked, or undermined? Are you angry because living in a world full of injustice and unfairness causes people to belittle you? Circumstances like these may be incredibly disappointing and painful to deal with, and may even be making you feel miserable, but have you asked yourself how much of it really matters?

Where Is Your Faith?

Was it lost in the convenience of the resources you have obtained which now substitutes for your reliance on God? Was it lost in the comfort of knowing, so you work hard to keep your doubt, unbelief, and excuses in order to escape the unknown; walking with full trust in God? It can be difficult to let go of familiarity, especially when you feel you aren't ready to take this step of faith, however in most scenarios it is nearly impossible to fulfill a new position without leaving another position behind. Your priorities must change. You may not want to leave this position behind but oftentimes you just have to respond to the call. What are you being called to do, but you've been refusing the instructions of the one who is calling you? What are you holding on to that's actually holding you back from walking in faith with God? Is it idolatry or some sort of sin like unforgiveness? Are you being led to leave a person, place, or thing? Ask God what you need to leave behind so that you can follow Him in faith entirely.

Dear Christian

Dear Christian,

Don't bite your tongue holding back on the TRUTH (John 14:6). Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation (Mark 16:15)." What would've happened if Jesus took the safe route? Following the broad road may seem like the in thing to do, but Jesus encourages us all to take the road less traveled, which is harder and uncomfortable, but will pay off eternally (Matthew 7:13-14).

Focus

This world has become so filled with evil. I pray for all to repent and to know Jesus as their Lord and savior. These times are not times for us to get comfortable or to be distracted and ignore the Word of God, while evil and social chaos intensifies. Blasphemers are rising everywhere. Non-believers are over-saturating the schools where our children go to learn each week. Sexual immorality is taking over television and phone screens. Idolatry is flooding the music industry. Murderers are polluting our streets. False prophets are deceiving church members. Mockers are rising, and they are saying "Where is the promise of his coming? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation (2 Peter 3:4)." Sarcastically, scoffers ask, "when will Jesus Christ return?" Jesus said, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matthew 24:36)." But what about the seasons, which are revealing the day and hour approaching (2 Thessalonians 5:1-11)? All the signs (Matthew 24Luke 21:5-37, 2 Timothy 3:1-8, Revelation 12) are revealing that Jesus could return at any moment now. The question remains: "Are you focused (1 Thessalonians 5:6)?"
