Welcome to my blog.

This is a Christian Blog. The theme and purpose come from Romans 12:1-2 Being transformed by the renewing of our minds.

Romans 12:1-2 NIV Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

 

In Christ,

Lance

But we also have an external enemy who wants to destroy us. 1 Peter 5:8 tells us that the enemy is constantly seeking who he can destroy. Make no mistake about it we are in a spiritual war. The more I pray and read the Word the more I become aware of the...

Lead Us Not Into Temptation

Lead us not into temptation… Being tempted is not sin, Jesus was tempted by Satan at the start of His ministry, after fasting 40 days in the wilderness. It is no different for us today.

Forgive Us

And forgive our debts, As we forgive our debtors There are two parts to forgiveness. First we ask forgiveness for our sins, second we must forgive those who have sinned against us. Matthew 6:14-15 tells us that God will forgive us to the extent we forgive others. Forgiving others releases bitterness or resentment we may have in our hearts. Read Mat...

Give Us This Day

Give us this day our daily bread Pray about your needs. This is your opportunity to tell God your needs. He already knows your needs but you need to "make your requests known to God." James 4:3 tells us we "do not receive, because [we] ask with wrong motives." God wants to and is able to provide for our needs, for our ministry, and for our families...

Hallowed be Your Name 01

Side note: I use a writing tool for these posts and write them in the style of a research paper then export the paper and split it up into blog posts. I discovered that if I create the blog posts in the writing tool and export each post separately the citations that are part of the post will export as end notes. Starting with this post end notes wi...
