2 Corinthians 2:10-11 NKJV

“Now whom you forgive anything, I also  forgive.  For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

Romans 12:2 NKJV

“.. do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Psalm 51:8 NKJV “Make me hear joy and gladness,  That the bones You have broken may rejoice.”

Some people get saved & still listen to whatever is on the radio.. Have you considered Christian media or Gospel music?  I met a lady once that was suffering from depression. She tried all conventional methods to shake it. Church was her last hope.. I asked many questions to get to the heart of it but her life was chill, nothing major going on.  Last thing was her music of choice…”what’s on the radio.”  Break up songs, song degrading woman.  It was damaging her subconscious mind or you could say her inner most parts of her brain without her realizing it. She began to listen to Christ centered music & in time the depression went away. This is why God wants us to tune into Heaven jams because that is where we are going to.. No Kanye West or wordly jams beyond the pearl gates. Tune into hope & praise & tune out the junk & live a better quality of life. ~Pastor Pete 

Date Your Mate

1 Corinthians 7:3 NIV “The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, & likewise the wife to her husband.”

The day you stop courting is a day closer to ending up in court.  Divorce court.  Too busy?  You must make the time for date nite & make it special for each other.  These are our orders & duty & privilege before God & man. We took vows & made a sacred promise. No excuses ladies & gentleman…get your date on & fire up your relationship! ~ Pastor Pete

Life is Too Short for Drama.

Posted: February 13, 2012 in Uncategorized

‘There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama & the people who created it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad & focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones that don’t.  Life is too short to be anything but happy.  Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.’  This was on the wall at a laundry spot, pointed out by my wife.. but it spoke to me & I hope it helps someone out there also. ~Pastor Pete aka DJ one3

Matthew 6:22 NKJV

“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.”

Your mind’s eye is that which Jesus speaks of. Translated from Greek, the word ‘good’ means ‘clear’ or ‘healthy’. In verse 23, the word goes on to say that if your eye is bad, or viewing the unhealthy, the darkness, the evil you are filling yourself with darkness.  This is how folks get on the dark paths in life. The mind births sin thought & then the flesh follows the worldly flow & Satan encourages sin from the shadows.. Beware & be master of your thoughts/feelings. Here we learn from the ultimate teacher that we should NEVER be a prisoner to our thoughts or feelings. If u have no hope then u have given into your inner desires. We need to look to God’s word with a clear & healthy thinking mind to be filled with true joy & true peace.  Be still & know (He is) God.  When u can’t get to a Bible, think on what Paul said in Philippians 4:8 NIV, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” ~Pastor Pete aka DJ one3

Look up. He is our praise!

Jeremiah 17:14 NKJV

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise.”

Look up and focus up on our Lord & Savior. So often our focus is on the earthly mess we are stuck in. There is no hope there. No solution. We need only to look up, pray & praise toward where we are going. Heaven is the promised land not this broken place. It’s not where you are at but where you are going. Look to Jesus 24/7 alone for He is the wellspring of hope. -Pastor Pete aka DJ one3
