Alive With Resurrection Power

Written by Harold Herring.

One of my favorite Easter songs is “He’s Alive” by Ray Boltz. It’s a powerful narrative of the Resurrection and it always gives me glory bumps.

The chorus says:

He's alive, He's alive

He's alive and I'm forgiven

Heaven's gates are open wide

Can somebody say Hallelujah!!!

1 Corinthians 15:20-22 says:

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

As I was meditating on this scripture. . .I felt the Lord leading me to write on this passage.   At first, I wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted me to write about.

Did He want me to write about how Resurrection Sunday should be celebrated 52 weeks a year?

7 Keys To Overcome The Charlie Brown Complex

Written by Harold Herring.

Do you want to be an effective witness for the Lord?  Of course, you do.

So what’s the key?

Handing out tracts in the workplace or leaving them wedged in the mirrors of public restrooms.  Maybe for some.

How about telling people how Jesus has changed your life?  Okay, we’re on the right track.

What about when you laugh and sing praises to our Lord?

Can that be an effective witness for the Lord?

Yes, according to Psalm 126:2 in the Classic Amplified Bible which says:

“Then were our mouths filled with laughter, and our tongues with singing. Then they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them.”

5 Promises To Make You Shout!

Written by Harold Herring.

To say that we live in a negative society would be a gross understatement of the facts.

The world is filled with negativity.  If you doubt it. . .just wait. . .the news media will make sure you realize just how negative things are.

I’m sure you probably encounter negative people in your workplace and at church.

Yes, even the House of God has some nattering nabobs of negativism.

I deal with negative people each day. . .on a variety of levels. . .some upset . . . some confused. . .why there situation isn’t better than it is.

Just doing business requires hearing from disgruntled people.

Yes, these are tough days and many of listeners are struggling.

7 Characteristics Of An Unmistakable Commitment

Written by Bev Herring.

Have you ever asked yourself:

What’s my real commitment to the Word of God?

Does my commitment tend to change depending upon good times and bad times?

How firm is my commitment to the Word and God’s promises?

We can all praise God that He is definitely committed to us for the long haul.

1 Chronicles 16:15 in the New Living Translation says:

“Remember his covenant forever— the commitment he made to a thousand generations.”

When we commit to Him. . .He commits to us and supernatural manifestation takes place.

John 6:29 in the Message Bible says:

9 Things I Learned From A Sick Woman

Written by Harold Herring.

Knowledge surrounds us.  It’s at our fingertips.  I have a wonderful set of the Encyclopedia Britannica but my smart phone and other electronic toys makes the encyclopedias a relic of the past.

Each moment of our day holds the potential for learning.  But we must reach out to receive it.

Wisdom and knowledge are both at our finger tips but we overlook the value to settle for the mundane or the latest television program.

In fact, way too often we ignore the greatest source of wisdom the world has ever known for the ‘has been’ or ‘never will be’ options.

While wisdom and knowledge are everywhere. . .you can learn something from everybody.  In fact, I learned nine valuable lessons from a sick woman.

This lady’s story is in Mark 5 where it’s so clearly and intimately told that I feel as though I know her.  I even mentioned her last week when we were teaching on financial healing.

Here are nine things I learned from a sick lady.

1)            This Lady Needed A Miracle.

I Dare You Seven Ways

Written by Harold Herring.

When I was in high school. . .I was asked to speak at our local Rotary Club because I was actively involved in politics.

For those who are not familiar with the Rotary Club. . .it’s a service organization like the Lions, the Kiwanis, the Civitans, the Moose, Goose and got loose.  Just kidding about the last two.

Most of these service organizations meet once a week for lunch…hear a speaker and interact with each other.  Before social media…it was a great way to meet leaders in a local community and be involved in local projects.

My visit to the LaGrange, North Carolina Rotary Club was a wonderful experience.  I was given a book which I still have today. . .somewhere in my collection.

The title was I Dare You written by William H. Danforth of the Nestle Purina fortune.  It helped to stir me outside my comfort zone. . .long before I knew what a comfort zone was.
