Megaphones For Christ
Have you ever attended a professional sports event? There are thousands of people screaming loud for their winning side. How many believers do you know who put that same passion and intensity into their faith? How often do you proclaim the saving truth of Jesus Christ loudly.
“Paul praised the Thessalonians because the word of the Lord…sounded forth.” (1 Thess. 1:8). Our heavenly Father wants the same to be true of His children today.
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

4 Ways To Train Your Children To Be Debt Free
The Bible teaches us the danger of debt. (Proverbs 22:7) “Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.”
By training delayed gratification, talking openly about the family budget and providing opportunities for children to practice money management skills, we encourage them to understand the value of a dollar.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:5-8
Three Ways To Focus On Jesus During Holy Week
This week is the most significant celebration of the year for believers all around the world. It’s Holy Week, the time for remembering Christ’s journey to the cross, the celebration of his Resurretion, and the gift of new life.
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.
2 Timothy 1:9
