    By this time several things should be surfacing in your consideration.

    The first being that true biblical faith has to be placed in a person – Jesus the Christ. Secondly, it is what he does in and through you, not what you do for him on his behalf that is significant.

  • Distraction, a popular word used in sermons and Bible study lessons as it relates to our purpose and destiny, has a much deeper meaning than you may think.

    I have always heard this word used to describe the actions of individuals who have lost focus or in some way had their attention diverted to something they shouldn’t. However, a few years ago, I took time to really look at this word and upon further study, came away with a slightly different take on its popular usage.
