Authentic Vs. Religious?

Here's a little video that may make some laugh and may offend others. It's not meant to be controversial, but it does have a message that we should think about as Christians. What do you think? Let's talk about this.

Life On the Way Devotion: 10 Good Reasons

by Hello Kelly

And it feels like I've got to give you

10 good reasons why

You still love me every time

10 good reasons

I deserve forgiveness every night

10 good reasons why

You still love me when I

I ain't got no reason why

How often do you recognize that you're not living up to God's expectations? Maybe you feel like you need to do enough good things throughout the day to even out the bad things you did yesterday. You feel this crazy need to act good enough so that you deserve your salvation.

But the truth is that there is nothing you can do to earn salvation. Nothing. You can't do enough good deeds, because even after the best effort you still won't be perfect. But don't despair! Salvation and grace are God's free gifts to you. FREE!! Even though you can never pay him back, he still accepts you because of Jesus' sacrifice. All you can do is keep running after God and his plan for you every day. That's all he asks of you.

Romans 11:6

And since it is through God's kindness, then it is not by their good works. For in that case, God’s grace would not be what it really is—free and undeserved

Wow, it was a blessing to attend this years youth worker's conference, RELOAD! It was just what I needed. I feel full and my weapon in locked and loaded.

The morning began with praise and worship by Shachah and a short sermon from Pastor Soo. We were challenged to be open to the changing face of youth and be willing to minister to young people of all nationalities.

Some of the workshops titles were Discipleship: An Effective method of mentoring urban youth- which helped us look at how to be a better mentor to urban kids, and 2020 Vision for schools- which raised the question of what impact we would have on the class of 2020 if we (the body of Christ), reached them now starting school as kindergartners this fall.

Our day ended with part two of Pastor Soo's moving sermon that touched our hearts and souls.

We returned in the evening for a full concert by Shachah who once again rocked the HOUSE! Their Rock/Hip Hop/Soulful sound had everyone on their feet.

I would definitely encourage anyone who works with children from tots to teens to come to next years RELOAD conference. You will be glad you did!

Devotion: Those Nights

Those Nights

by Skillet

I remember when

We used to laugh

About nothing at all

It was better than going mad

From trying to solve all the problems we're going through

Do you remember what it was like to be a little kid? You ran and played whenever you could, laughing for no reason at all, except because you could. You felt so free and without burdens. But now you have responsibilities and bills and . . . life. It can be easy to get bogged down and forget to find the joy and humor in situations.But laughter can help you get through tough situations. Laughter can calm fears, soothe anxiety, and worship God. Sarah laughed when God gave her a child after the age of 90. David laughed with joy when the Ark of the Covenant rolled into town. So laugh. It'll be good for you.

Job 8:2
He will once again fill your mouth with laughter,and your lips with shouts of joy.

Living Light's Top 5 Cd's

So, what's getting play time in my car these days? Well, thought I'd tell you about my top 5 Cd's in the Living Light minivan.

  1. DJ Morph- International: This Cd just bangs! I love the compilation of Holy Hip Hop from all around the nation. From the East Coast to the Third Coast, there's something on this CD for everyone. My family loves it-my first pick.

  2. Coming at a close second, is 116 Clique member, Sho Baraka-Turn My Life Up. I had a hard time finding this CD. I couldn't really get it anywhere, and that's part of this reason why we chose to re-open Living Light Books and Music in the first place. No one should have to struggle to get good gospel music. And this one's a winner! Higher Love is my favorite cut on the project and this was the only song I listened to for about a week, no kidding!

  3. O.K. I love the E.P. so much and it's hard to place it third, but Go Get This! Rhema Souls-Dope Beats Good News You can name your price on this one but if you don't have it, you can still download it for free. Find out how in my previous post.

  4. Marvins Winans Jr.-Image of a man. I hope you didn't sleep on this one. This CD is full of smooth vocals and contemporary urban beats that only a Winans can give you. Produced by heavy hitters Rodney Jerkins, Noel Fisher, and David Garcia.

  5. Last but certainly not least, Lecrae- Rebel. I know this project has been out for a while but this is one that just stays in our car! It never gets old! Someone told me they thought this was his best Cd to date. I thought "No way, you can't top "After The Music Stops, can you? Rebel proved me wrong!

Get a free song download from Integrity Music

Get a free download of one of Freddy Rodriguez praise and worship songs. You'll be blessed!

Devotion: Cant stand to fall

Can't Stand to Fall

by Philmont

But now I realize when I try to hide it's all in vain I end up pushing You away

Remember disobeying your parents when you were a kid? Even if it was something small like taking an extra cookie, you avoided them, fearing that they would find out and then you would be punished. You would go out of your way to steer clear of them. We often do the same thing with God.When we mess up, we avoid him. We stop talking to him, stop reading his Word, and push him further away, just when we need him most. It's during the times when we are struggling that we need to draw closer to God so that he can protect us and give us strength. Remember that God already knows what has happened, and he wants to help you, so don't shut yourself off from him.

2 Timothy 2:13
If we are unfaithful he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.

Life on the Way
