Pope Francis, while celebrating Ash Wednesday at the Dominican-run Basilica of Santa Sabina in 2015, he described Lent as a journey of purification and penance – a movement that should bring one tearfully back to the loving arms of the merciful Father.
There could never have been a better time to preach this message but on Ash Wednesday, the day when all Christians walk around with the sign of the cross on their foreheads:
those two smudge-strokes of ash made by the fronds burned from the last Palm Sunday. It is to mark the beginning of Lent, which, some commentators argue, is equally, to mark the season of hypocrisy. Continue reading How Hypocrisy Has Overtaken Godliness During Lenten Season

Come as you are to the Lord with your need, and lean on His unfailing and unconditional love for you. You don’t have to pretend to be more than what you are to receive the blessing you need from God. You don’t have to pretend to be someone else to appear more deserving to receive from God.
…know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
If you were to thank God for something today, what would it be? For me, it would be thanking God for giving me Jesus. For when I see Jesus on the cross, I see the love of God overcoming everything for me. It causes me to say, “Thank you, Jesus! I love you, Jesus! I worship you, Jesus! Bless you, Jesus! Hallelujah!”
Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

2 Peter 1:2
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
If you would like to walk in a greater measure of God’s favor, 2 Peter 1:2 says that grace, which is the undeserved favor of God, and peace, can be multiplied to you. Peace is the word “shalom” in Hebrew.
Its definition includes wholeness, health, safety and provision. So when you walk in divine favor and peace, you will walk in blessings in every area of your life!
“And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.”
I believe this is going to be a significant year for you and me and I’m excited to share with you what the Lord has shown me in His Word for us this year:
This is the year in which the Lord wants us to proclaim liberty!
In this year of Jubilee, according to Scripture, debts are going to be supernaturally cancelled. Lost possessions and family relationships are going to be restored. This is the vision the Lord has for all who follow this ministry as we step into 2017!
…Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them
is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
