Hi Everyone!

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to say hello to everyone. The accident has had me in an up and down pendulum swing. For this reason, I have been somewhat inconsistent with my postings. Also, as a result of this, I felt the need to send everyone a quick ‘shout out.’ Why? Because all of you have been so supportive of our efforts here at Kingdom Living.

Thanks for your love and support…God Bless You!

Love God…love people…love yourself

Grace Is Sufficient For All

“And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel…” (Josh. 6:23).

God’s grace is great and extends to everyone. As believers, we preach this within and outside of the Christian circle. However, we negate the statement by our actions. Many times, our judgmental comments and actions close the door of opportunity for others to experience grace. As a result, the person in need of grace receives the proverbial scarlet letter through maltreatment from those who have the answer for their present condition.

How soon we forget that we once were in need of God’s grace! We have also forgotten that we, too, still need God’s grace to successfully go through each day. Do we remember when the shoe was on the other foot? Likewise, God reached down and rescued us when we were in the midst of our sin. For some of us, it was not too long ago. For others, it was so long ago that God sometimes reminds us.

God is not partial to any one group of people. His desire is to see all of humanity receive His precious gift of salvation. He expects us to share our stories with others in order for them to realize that they, too, have a chance to be redeemed.

As God’s children, we should emulate our Father’s actions in all that we think, say and do. God freely gave His gift of grace to us. We should be willing to share it with others. This is God’s way of overthrowing the kingdom of darkness. As His children, this should be our way of doing things as well.

Real Talk…

Real Talk…Have you ever heard someone says this? It speaks to a following statement representing something to be received as believable. This is an attempt to persuade another about the credibility of the spoken statement. So what you see below will be what I call…Real Talk…

Real Talk. Failure to succeed in fulfilling our Kingdom assignment is no longer an option. The times are changing and the urgency within the atmosphere demands action from us all. How must we respond? Well, the call has been issued, and our response should be a simple, but adamant “Yes!”

Real talk. The pace at which things are evolving does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon. This leads me to believe that we must increase our efforts to fulfill our Kingdom assignments. We must also begin to look outwardly beyond ourselves and see the need in the communities around us. Collectively, we pass thousands, if not millions, of people in need on a daily basis. What have we done with our resources to meet the need?

Real talk. We hold the keys to someone else’s release. God designed us to possess gifts that would meet the need of others. These people cannot function fully nor freely if we fail to step up and function in our respective places. How does it feel to know that we are preventing someone else from fulfilling purpose because we are not fulfilling our purposes? This is an extremely sobering thought.

Real talk…the question now becomes: What will we do about it moving forward? What changes will we make? When we return to the mirror, what will we see? Will we see an inspired member of the Christian community? Or will we continue to see the same person as before?

Real talk. We have some serious introspection to engage in and some serious decisions to make…sooner than later!

“…See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil…” (Eph. 5:15,16).
