As we live this life we must have a lifestyle. We can live a life of sin or live for the Lord God is a gentle man he does not force Himself on you. Jeremiah Lawrence Anderson wrote “HOLINESS; IT’S A LIFESTYLE!” He asked this question: What does the word holiness mean to you? Oftentimes as Christians when we hear the word holiness, we paint a picture of a certain group of people belonging to a certain type church, wearing certain types of clothes and talking a certain way. When I was growing up and heard the word holiness, a picture was painted in my mind. A picture of older women who wore white dresses and cotton stockings. I am not saying that these people were not holy, but as I matured in Christ, I came to learn that holiness has nothing to do with wardrobe or appearance, but it does have everything to do with lifestyle. Christ reminds us to be holy for he is holy. What does this mean? Clearly, this is a direct command for us to model our lives after the example that has been set before us since the foundation of the world. Holiness is simply separation. Not separation from the world, but separation from the way the world acts. In an effort to live a holy life, it means that we should be deliberate in being distinct from those who do not know Christ. Our God is different from so-called other Gods, therefore we must live according to His will and give Him glory. Read your Bible with understanding.

Last Sunday I attended the 26th Church Anniversary with Overseer Levonzo Gray and the Good News Community Baptist Church. The guest speaker was Bishop Craig Johnson of Cathedral Of Praise Int’l Ministries what a powerful message that was preached and all who attended were blessed. The title of Bishop Johnson’s speech was “I Am Glad God Knows.” Lady Gray was not feeling well but with all the prayers for her, she is on the road to great health. See you next time Lady Gray and let us remember her in prayer. Last week I attended a three-night revival at Greater Power Church, San Bernardino under the leadership of Pastor Sarah Morris. The revival was truly a revival. Dr. Charles Easter of Camdon, Ark. was a powerful speaker. The first night, he spoke from Job 38:1 titled, Look What Your Friend Made You Do. On the second night, Revelation 20:1 titled What In Hell Do You Want? and the last night What Is He To You? Thank you Dr. Easter for your wonderful spirit.

Dear readers remember to love & pray for everyone.
