    A Few Thoughts.

    No blog this Sunday. I’ll be back next week. In the mead time, you can visit the Son-Day Post’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/theson-dayposts. If that doesn’t work, go to your Facebook page and type theson-dayposts into the search block. I do have a few thoughts on one point: We, the creation, are not greater than our creator. Many people seem to think that as Christians we deserve to prosper and become well off, or that we’re better than others.

    Allowing Christ to Empower Your Life: Part Two

    Note: This Sunday’s blog picks up where part one leaves off.  If you haven’t read part one, I suggest strongly that you read part it first, and then continue with part two, which may be a little late being posted.  I apologize for the lack of timeliness.  Jesus had appeared to the disciples gathered on a mountain, where He had sent them prior to Pentecost, and had given them the Great Commission: “And all authority has been given Me in heaven and on earth.  But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name [singular]…
