WHY?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. O-bservation: St Paul made a definitive statement when it comes to being led by the Spirit. He said if you are led by the Spirit, you will not be under or ruled by the law. What does that mean?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Song of Songs 3:1 All night long on my bed, I looked for the one my heart loves; I looked for him but did not find him. O-bservation: This book, the Song of Songs or the Song of Solomon, speaks of sexual, sensual married love between a husband and wife. Many believe this is the story that Solomon wrote when love was young. There is no sorrow in this book—only the joys of marriage. Later, when Solomon sinned with so many foreign heathen women that he brought into his kingdom with their foreign gods, he...

I Want to Be A Load Carrier

S. O. A. P. Here's your 90 second AM devotional! S-cripture: Galatians 6:5 For everyone should carry their own load. O-bservation: As the apostle Paul begins to wrap up his letter to the Galatians, he speaks of helping restore friends who have sinned and really messed up. Paul says, “You who are spiritual should do this.” He warns them that when they are dealing with certain types of sin, they need to know that they too could fall prey to the Temptation. This is not about getting a special badge when you get to heaven. This is about stooping down in the dirt to help a...
