Welcome to Forgiving Grace Ministries!

 

This ministry began in the fall of 2004 as an effort to begin in earnest the call which I believe God has called me too. I am not a web designer, but by the Grace of God I have been able to manage some things, it took as many hours to fix the original site as it did for me to build it and it may be that way again, but thanks to some great friends and their willingness to help, this design will have all the features originally designed into it, even though it may take some time. This ministry has been blessed with visitors from all over the world. I am so privileged to be able to use the gifts God has given me to share not only what He has done for me personally but also what His Word says about the way we should live our lives as believers. I have felt led for last couple of years to do a redesign and incorporate some new features that would add a new dimension to the ministry and allow others to share what God has done or is doing in their life. Two of those new features are "Heroes of the Faith" and "Personal Testimonies" through each of these the ministry will seek out your stories, so that God may use what He has done in your life to bring peace and comfort to others who may be going through the same or similar situations, so please prayerfully consider sharing your story with us and the rest of the world.

As we prepare to begin our sixth year as a web based ministry it is amazing to hear from people all over the world who either have been helped, inspired, instructed or changed by the work God inspires us to do. We have  and will continue in our passionate pursuit to teach the whole truth of scripture, we hold firm in the belief  that the scriptures are the inerrant Word of God, we still maintain our course for preaching with the power and authority of  the Holy-Spirit to help Christians and non-Christians alike become aware of what the scriptures command us in, and how great and awesome our God really is, along with the enormous magnitude of His love for all men. Today this is an even more important message than it was in 2004 when this ministry began, we still hold fast to the Truth, that is the Word of God , and we hold scripture, the Holy Word of God in the highest of Authority for our lives. The Bible is without doubt the only true Instruction book for life. It is an absolute necessity that every Christian honor the Word, hold it in Reverence and use it as The Lamp to guide our lives, for to neglect the Word of God, is to Neglect God directly!

Our goal remains unchanged, we believe that in an effort to be good stewards of all that God has so freely given to us, we must passionately continue in seeking to further our education and knowledge of the perfect and truthful Word of God, so we may give meaningful application in the presentation of this life changing Word, while teaching others how to live lives that are honoring to God. We hold fast that being called of God, for the purpose of the commission given in Matthew 28:19-20 . Therefore we will continue to preach with the power and authority of the Holy-Spirit and to reach out to all men whether saved or unsaved  by means of the preaching and written teaching of the complete Word of God. You cannot testify to just half of the Truth, for a half truth presented as a whole truth is just a lie!

Current Article

       What a week of tragedies, many times these tragedies can be means that crack the stone heart, other times people use tragedies to reinforce the wall and add another layer of height or the depth of the wall.

Though we look at life choices as many, but the truth of the matter there are generally two choices to any situation. One we can rebel, turn and haw at God claiming that He is not a God of love or justice. When we do this we set ourselves up in judgment of God, imagine, the created judging the Creator. I suspect that some who will read this will not agree and will go on their merry way, for those very people I ask one favor, please read on.

Devotions for A Deeper Life

MP3 Sermons

Philippians 4:11  Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.  (Part 1)

 

Romans 10:13-15 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL  BE   SAVED." How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom  they have not heard? And how will they hear without a  preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "HOW  BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING  GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!"
A Deeper Look:  Paul, being mature in his faith and after having been through much refining had achieved a level of peace or tranquility, a proper measure of Godly assuredness that allowed him to be content with his place even if in prison. To the believers at Philippi he spoke from the abundance of Christ in his life, not from a position of want or need of anything worldly, in 2 Corinthians 9:8 it is clearly stated that �God is able to make all grace abound to you�

Here it is clear that we would look to God for the Grace to become content in the place we currently reside and those to which we are moving. The largest step for us to grasp or understand this is that Christ is our true and only source. In 1 Timothy 6:6 and 1 Timothy 6:8, we need to understand that Godliness along with Contentment produces the Greatest Wealth. We know that God has said that if the lilies of the field and the birds of the air are proved for in the matter of food and coverings, and if He would be so generous to these things, which He had made then how much more would He provide for us. In Hebrews 13:5 we are told to add character here to bring it along with Godliness and Contentment and here we have the recipe for a true sense of Joy no matter the day to day struggles of life. We must intentionally move away from the love of money and stuff for in them Idolatry can be found and a move into Un-Godliness.

For us to achieve a Phil 4:11 life, a true sense of Godliness. We must extract the right ingredients from each of these verses and mix them together, so first we lay our need at the feet of Jesus, seek to live a life, a true life of Godliness flee from greed and make peace with where you are at and seek Gods help and will. It was said that when we are content with where we are it can and will help banishing the wrong desire for unfruitful gain.
