Blog Posts:
I would like to ask particularly preachers, pastors, ministers, teachers, those of you with published materials, and with your own Christian websites elsewhere to consider sharing samples of your written material with us as blog posts, devotions, poems, sermon excerpts, prayers or whatever it is the Lord has given you.  I would like to feature blog posts more often, but find it difficult when there is not much participation or when only one or two people do all the writing.  Do not sit on your gifts.  I encourage you to use them here, too to the glory of God.

Government Photographer Asked Church Volunteers Not to Wear Religious T-Shirts in Video About Tornado Aftermath - BCNN1

By: Min. Angela Lee Price
This is what I'm talking about right here.  Christians are often criticized for not doing enough in the community to help those in need.  The criticism is justified oftentimes, but when we come not only willing and ready to work, but bearing our Cross, not just on the inside, but on the outside for the world to see, then don't attempt to pass us off, media people, as just another group of Christless do-gooders out there one-upping the Christians.  That is basically what happened in this story.  A FEMA photographer attempted to cover up, circumvent even, the role the faith based community played recently in helping tornado survivors pick up the pieces of their windblown lives.  He told church volunteers to take off their Christian t-shirts before going on camera in his video. This FEMA administrator apologized for the blunder.

Dr. Glaude, "Who Signed the Death Certificate on the Black Church?" As a White Brother Looking In, "the Black Church is Energetic, Living, and Flourishing" - BCNN1

Dr. Joel C. Gregory, left, is Professor of Preaching, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University

The past decade has afforded me an opportunity rarely found in recent American church culture. For a complex of reasons I have become a white preacher in black churches. I have spoken before more than 200 African American congregations, conferences, and conventions in more than twenty states each year.

From coast to coast and border to border, in urban centers and small towns, I have preached in America's black churches. These include not only black Baptist congregations but African Methodist Episcopal, Church of God in Christ, and other historically black denominations.

From that experience, I am at a loss for an explanation of Dr. Glaude's statement that the black church is dead. If it is, I do not know who signed the death certificate or notified the next of kin. In every way I can measure vitality, the black church is energetic, living, and flourishing.

Praising God For Mother!

Guardians Tag Ministry
Here is an opportunity to praise God for mother.  She brought you into this world, and let her tell it, she will take you out. Where would you be without her in your life? What specifically has she done to help you become the Christian man or woman you are today? Take a praise break with Jesus Saves Ministries and praise God for your mother, grandmother, foster mother, God mother, aunt, or that special female who has been a God-fearing mother and nurturer to you.

Add a brief note to your mother to the bottom of this blog post on the Jesus Saves Social Network letting her know how much you appreciate her.


"Dear Mom (Grandmama, Big Mama, etc.),

I was thinking about you and all the Godly advice you have given me throughout the years. You have always been there for me and I can't begin to say how much I appreciate you for all the Godly advice you blessed me with.


Your daughter/son"

Interview with Rapper Snoop Dogg's Mother Evangelist Beverly Broadus Green

By: Min. Angela Lee Price

I sat down with rapper Snoop Dogg's mother, Evangelist Beverly Brodus Green after 8:00 a.m. worship service Derby weekend at St. Stephen Church, Louisville, Kentucky for a one-on-one interview about her son, the famous rapper, and her call to the preaching ministry and book, Real Love, the agape love that God has for us. Evangelist Green says Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Broadus, was raised in the church. He went to Sunday school, sang in the choir, and to bible study. She prays for her son constantly. She believes God has a call on his life and wants to see him turn his life around and reconnect with his Christian faith.

Who Is In Your Fave Five?

NBA great and hall of famer Charles Barkley is a spokesman for a mobile phone company that offers a "Fave Five," five people you can talk to for as often and as long as you like each month for free. Who are you talking to and witnessing to continually about Jesus Christ? Who is in your "fave five?"
Ralph Neighbor says in Survival Kit for New Christians: A Practical Guide to Spiritual Growth, "Witnessing is not preaching. Witnessing is not teaching the Bible. Witnessing is giving proof or evidence. You have accepted Christ as your Savior and Lord. He has come to live in your life. You have repented of your sins. You have prayed for His Spirit to control you. Your personality has changed because of Christ in your life. People who are around you can see the differences. You are a witness." You are living proof to people who are around you that Jesus saves!
Some Christians say, "I don't need to talk about Christ. All they have to do is see my actions." They are being selfish when we say that. We can talk all day to our 'fave five" about everything and everybody, except Jesus Christ. I don't think so. The Bible says the enemy is overcome by the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Rev 12:11). Friends don't let friends miss heaven. You need to say your witness! Tell somebody what the Lord has done for you.

The apostle Paul knew how to say his witness. Paul wrote, " I am not ashamed of the Good News. It is the power of God. It is the way He saves men...if they put their trust in Him." With relatives, friends, and guests in for the Kentucky Derby, who is in your "fave five," the five people you plan to share Christ with? If you don't have a "fave five," create one and tell them Jesus saves!
This devotional inspired by Survival Kit for New Christians Basic English: A Practical Guide to Spiritual Growth, by Ralph W. Neighbour, Jr.
