CHRISTmas Memories



Before we start this article and CHRISTmas series I want to let you know to look for a Top 10 CHRISTmas list at the end of each article!

True Thanksgiving … for God’s Glory and Our Good!

TRUE AUTHORITY – DEMANDED OR INVITED?



Jesus is the Ultimate Authority and yet He waits to be invited into our lives! What should that tell us about authority?  His teaching and example are very clear that His Authority is never demanded…we must invite Him in!  As The Author, He teaches and models for us what True Authority is so we need to know and apply His Truth about authority to any position of authority that we have been given or placed in as well!
