Choosing The Right S Word In Your Relationship

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Sermons at 8:49 pm by Administrator

There are two major “S” words that color and characterize every relationship. One “S” word is “selfishness” and the other one is “sacrifice.”

Whenever a person permits their selfishness and self-centeredness to predominate in their relationship, they doom their relationship to tension, disaster and failure.

Ben Stein’s How To Ruin Your Love Life is a witty and helpful book about the little things that can destroy a relationship and marriage.

Here are some selfish attitudes mentioned in How To Ruin Your Love Life:

  • “Know your wishes are the only ones that matter in any situation.”
  • “Live your life as if only your feelings count!”
  • “Never admit you’re wrong or apologize in any dispute.”
  • “Never be grateful for the gifts you get from your lover.”
  • “Talk about yourself exclusively.”
  • “Don’t for a moment let your lover believe that they’re valued just for themselves.”
  • Let it be known that you consider affection to be a chore.”


Never allow the brazen selfishness of this world to prevent you from sacrificing for your mate.

Whenever a person permits sacrifice to predominate in their relationship — obviously a relationship with the right saved person, they bless their relationship by causing it to benefit from the following glorious principles:

  • Sacrifice eliminates tension in a relationship because it puts in check a person’s ego which always wants to have things its way.
  • Sacrifice sweetens the atmosphere of a relationship because it touchingly displays love-in-action to one’s mate.
  • Sacrifice strengthens a relationship because it sets in motion the principle that says that in blessing your mate with concern and sensitivity, you cannot help but to reap blessings yourself.
  • Sacrifice elevates, deepens and dignifies a relationshop in that it causes a person to value the notion that giving is far more important than receiving!

What Do We Really Mean By This Word “Sacrifice“?

The word “sacrifice” comes from the Latin word “sacrificium.” “Sacer” means “sacred” or “holy” and “facere” means “to make” or “to do.” Therefore, sacrifice means that you consider your relationship so sacred and important until you are willing to make the needed adjustments for its continued success and survival.

The act of sacrifice is sacred in a relationship because it seriously reflects what God did for us in Jesus Christ.

  • “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
  • Note that the above verse clearly mentions the giving component that is involved in all genuine sacrifice (“He gave His only begotten Son”).
  • To sacrifice is to give!

    Give your undivided attention to the one you love.
    Give compliments to the one you love.
    Give affection to the one you love.
    Give gifts to the one you love.
    Give your precious time to the one you love.
    Give your forgiveness to the one you love.
    Give priority to the one you love.


Once is not enough! If a word, gesture or activity pleases your mate, then it is worth doing over and over and over again.

Husbands and men in a serious relationship, never underestimate the power of a flower!

“Every husband and wife needs to sit down and meditate on the thought: ‘My partner married me because she or he thought the pleasing things I was doing during our courtship would continue for the rest of our lives. Am I holding up my end of the bargain?’ ” Willard Harley, Jr in His Needs, Her Needs

Agape love, the highest form of love, always has another’s best interest at heart.

“Agape love is defined and driven by self-sacrifice. The measure of love is what you are willing to give up for it.” (Our Daily Bread: “What Love Is)

Please know that sacrifice requires a profound pronoun shift! That is to say, sacrifice occurs when you give up the “I” and the “me” in your relationship, and focus on the “we” and “us” in your relationship.

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it.” Ephesians 5:25

It should plainly understood that while a relationship may barely survive when one member sacrifices, a relationship will truly soar when both members sacrifice.

Ask yourself this question:

Which of these ‘S’ words characterizes your relationship? The ‘S’ word that stands for “selfishness” or the ‘S’ word that stands for “sacrifice“??

Dating Advice For Christian Singles

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Bible Verses, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Quotations, Encouraging Sermons at 12:13 am by Administrator

In the words of my pastor, Dr. Ephraim Williams, you must learn how to “date with your ears and not with your eyes.” That is to say, you must not be seduced by a brother’s physical appearance.

Never allow a person’s looks to overshadow what a person has to say. Instead, you must pay special attention what he says about himself, people in general, his family, his past relationships, his beliefs, and most certainly, what he says about God and the church.

Many Singles, even Christian Singles, date with their “eyes” instead of dating with their “ears,” because a) it requires less work, and b) their sex drive is so intense and hypnotizing.

If you do not control your sex drive:

  • Your sex drive will drive you crazy.
  • Your sex drive will drive you to depression and despair.
  • Your sex drive will drive you to contracting all sorts of infections and diseases.
  • Your sex drive will drive you to a horribly low self-esteem.
  • Your sex drive will drive you into the arms of a leeching, kryptonite brother who will expect you to take care of him!

Christian Singles, you must realize that the sex drive is so powerful until the only thing that can control it is the Holy Spirit!

You can help the Holy Spirit by 1) getting your mind off lust; 2) staying away from “kryptonite” people (that is, people who make you weak): and 3) avoiding compromising situations. (Philippians 4:8; Isaiah 26:3; II Corinthians 6:14; I Corinthians 6:18-20)

My late father, Dr. Manuel Scott, Sr. used to say, “If Adam had had the right Eve in the garden, we would still be in paradise.” (The Quotable Manuel Scott, Sr: Words From A Gospel Genius, 2010)

Someone may appear to be “eye candy,” but just like diabetes, they can do great harm to your system. The disadvantage of dating with your “eyes” is that you usually end up with a “pretty devil” and a broken heart!

I Samuel 16:7: “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance or on the height of his stature, because I have refused him; for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

The main advantage of dating with your “ears” is that you give yourself time to get to know a person before making an emotional commitment to them.

In the end, one way or another, a person’s speech and conversation will eventually reveal to you who they really are and what they are all about.

We Are Not Immune

by

Evangelist Manuel Scott, Jr.

There is a lie
That needs to die
That says God’s children are immune
From tragedy, heartbreak and despair
Disaster and misfortune.

There is a lie
That needs to die
That says that believers are above Devastation
But just ask Job, ask Jeremiah, ask David, ask me
Wait!
Ask Jesus who said, “In the world ye shall have Tribulation
Oh no, we Christians are not immune
From life’s dangerous and sometimes cruel sea
But we are on a ship whose captain is the Lord
And He can handle
Any emergency.



Psalm 34:17 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.”

The Sky Is Still There

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Bible Verses, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Sermons at 1:53 am by Administrator

In The Soul Of Christianity, Huston Smith discusses how even when the sky is covered with dark rain clouds, and assaulted by angry tornados, the sky, nevertheless, is still there.

No amount of harsh climatic activity, and regardless of how gloomy the atmosphere may appear, can change the fact that the sky is still there.

It is crucial that you realize that in spite of the rough storms that you are currently going through, in spite of the terrible tornadoes that are circling your life, God in Jesus, just like the sky, is still there! God–who made the sky–is still there!

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.” Psalm 23:4

Friends will betray you, family members will attack you, lovers will desert you, coworkers will turn their backs on you, but God, just like the sky, is still there! God has always been there, and He will always be there!

“I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5)

I’ve been saying for some time that God is still there, even when you can’t feel Him.

“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him.” Psalm 145:18

Never forget that while appearances may have A word, it is God who has the last word. (Genesis 50:20) While appearances can write a comma, it is God who places the period.

“Circumstances do not have the last word in anyone’s destiny.” Dr. Manuel Scott Sr. in The Quotable Manuel Scott Sr: Words From A Gospel Genius by Manuel Scott, Jr.

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.” Isaiah 43:2

Sorrow may be clouding up your sky, but be encouraged, God is still there.

Worry may be clouding up your sky, but be encouraged, God is still there.

Anxiety may be clouding up your sky, but be encouraged, God is still there.

Depression may be clouding up your sky, but be encouraged, God is still there.

“Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:20)

No Need To Worry

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Bible Verses, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Quotations, Encouraging Sermons at 7:20 pm by Administrator

The astute C. S. Lewis once said, “But tho’ there is much to be puzzled about, there is nothing to be worried about.”

This statement assures us that peace of mind, for the believer, has little to do with our understanding of events, but everything to do with our faith in Him who navigates and controls all events.

In other words, even when we are tossed to and fro by the storms of bewilderment, questions and worries, we can be at perfect peace, because the captain and lifeguard of the ship is Christ Jesus Himself, the Prince of Peace.

“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

I’ve been saying for some time, while you’re trying to figure it out, God is already working it out.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

If you make a habit of just focusing down on earthly issues, you will be depressed and confused every time. But, if you focus up on eternal issues — eternal issues that put earthly issues in their proper perspective, you will operate in confidence, peace and power.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3

The essence of your peace comes from how consistent you are in looking up “from whence cometh your help, your help cometh from the Lord.” Psalm 121:1-2

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” II Corinthians 5:7

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

Drawing The Line Somewhere

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Poems, Encouraging Sermons at 9:30 pm by Administrator

by Evangelist Manuel Scott, Jr.

We must all concede that the flesh is a snare
And this cross we must daily bear
But in spite of this fact the Word still teaches
That a line
Must be drawn
Somewhere.

Temptation is powerful, compelling and strong
The smell of Sin is sweet like perfumed air
The pull of lust is like a magnet
But Pilgrim
A line
Must be drawn
Somewhere.

It is folly to believe and an illusion to maintain
That your strength, against Satan’s, can compare
For the Devil, about you, is far too wise
Be sober!
A line
Must be drawn
Somewhere.

There are those who say that permissiveness is the way
That one should boldly take up Life’s dare
But upon examining their horrid mess
You would see
That a line
Must be drawn
Somewhere.

And so, Dear Ones, I am even more convinced
Regarding these things I’ve tried to share
That if Sanity is to live and Decency survive
There must be
There has to be
A line
Drawn
Somewhere.

“Let all things be done decently and in order.”
I Corinthians 14:40

After The Benediction

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Poems, Encouraging Sermons at 4:05 pm by Administrator

My brothers and sisters, we joyfully celebrate Juneteenth.” Juneteenth marks the day, June 19th 1865, when African-American slaves in Galveston, Texas first learned that the Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863 had declared them free.

Make no mistake about it, no human beings can celebrate like an oppressed people who have been set free!

Sometime ago, I preached a sermon entitled, After The Benediction. In that message, I maintained that the real work of the Church takes place after church is over, after the benediction.

Consequently, when the Juneteenth celebrations are over, when all of the prayers, and all of the speeches, and all of the commendations have been given, the real work in our community begins after the benediction.

After the benediction, the hungry need to be fed. After the benediction, the naked need to be clothed and the homeless need to be housed. After the benediction, the unemployed need to be put to work, children need to be cared for, the sick need to be visited, the elderly need to be assured. The hoodlum, the gang-banger, the drug addict, the convict, the pimp, the prostitute, the pervert, the child molester need to be shown that there’s a better way. After the benediction.

The saintly Mahatma Gandhi said, You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

My friend, we must work for the betterment of our community after today is over. After the benediction.

You can find out about volunteer opportunities in your community at www.serve.gov.

After The Benediction

I’ve often wondered how the world would be
If more Christians came to the decision
That they would let their light truly shine
After the benediction.

I’ve often mused in the mirror of my mind
How this society would be in better condition
If people of the Cross would stop fighting one another
And come together
After the benediction.

Before the benediction it’s easy to hide
It’s so easy to play the game
Before the benediction emotions run high
But sadly, everyone
Leaves the same.

But after the benediction, Ah! there’s the test
Of whether the Word has begun to walk
Of whether our motives and principles are real
Or if they’ve been drowned in the sea of hypocritical talk.

And so, my friends, as I journey on
I pray that you are not locked into tradition
For singing and praying and shouting are fine
But what God needs most
Are soldiers marching
After
The benediction.

Be encouraged,

Evangelist Manuel Scott, Jr.

Encouraging Poem For Single Mothers

My Dearest Single Mother

by

Evangelist Manuel Scott, Jr.


My Dearest Single Mother,
God has a plan for you
Stay strong, stay focused, stay prayerful
For He will surely see you all the way through.

Though your burdens may be heavy
And your nights may be oh so long
Look up my Sister, for there’s a brighter day
And He will gently guide you along.

When it seems like you’re not appreciated
When it seems as if no one really cares
Just remember the very tears you shed
God will take them, and wipe them, and change them
Into butterfly wings
That will soar
And flutter
All through the air.

My Dearest Single Sister,
Relief is on the way
Relief from stress and strain
Relief from problems and pain
Relief from shackles and chains
For God has just sent some angels
And charged them to lift all your cares away.

My Dearest Single Mother
Remember that the Father is a parent like you
For He shares your hurts and hopes for your children
To Him, continue to pray, for He knows exactly what to do.

My Precious Sister of Heaven,
Let this thought caress you like none other
The Father deems you priceless, wonderful, and oh so special
My Dearest, Dearest, Single Mother.

(Poem from Just A Hug:10 Poems For Christian Sisters To Think About)

“Casting all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you.” I Peter 5:7

Happy Mother’s Day!

Three Ways God Answers Our Prayers

Posted in Encouragement, Encouraging Bible Verses, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Quotations, Encouraging Sermons at 6:04 pm by Administrator

Prayer is the intimate oral and mental communication with God that lets us know that God hears, God cares, and God is able to act.

Prayer is friendship with God.” George Buttrick

Prayer involves a concerned earthly child connecting with a concerned heavenly Father (Matthew 6:9).

“Prayer honors God, acknowledges His being, exalts His power, adores His providence, secures His aid.” E.M. Bounds

Prayer is the spiritual gymnasium in which we exercise and practice godliness.” V. L. Crawford

Because Christians strongly believe that our God is a God who hears and answers prayer, it is most important that we explore, as best we can, how God answers prayer.

I contend that there are three significant ways that God answers prayer:

  • God says “YES”

This answer means that God agrees with our requests and answers accordingly.

The story of Hannah and the birth of her son Samuel is a good example of God saying, “YES!” Read I Samuel 1:26-28.

My late great father Dr. Manuel Scott, Sr.’s sermon, Footnotes To An Answered Prayer, tells of lessons learned when God answered YES to his fervent prayer in his youth.

  • God says, Not Until Some Conditions Are Met

This answer means that God indeed plans to grant our requests. However, He desires that certain terms be met either by the person asking, or in regard to what the person is asking for.

In other words, when God answers in this manner, He is either saying that YOU are not yet ready to handle what you have asked for, OR, WHAT you have asked for is not yet ready for you!

For example, if you are a Sister and you ask God for a certain Brother, and God answers you by saying, “Not until certain conditions are met,” God is either saying to you:

1. YOU need to get yourself “more together,” perhaps in terms of your attitude, associations, family ties, habits, finances, etc., before He will grant your request

OR

2. That Brother who you have asked for needs to get himself “more together,” perhaps in terms of his attitude, associations, family ties, habits, finances, etc., before God will grant you your request.

Moreover, whenever you perceive that God is answering you by saying, “Not until certain conditions are met,” you have several options:

1. You can discern that you need to make some improvements.

2. You can discern that what you have asked for needs more time to make the necessary adjustments.

3. You can discern that both you and what you have asked for need more time.

4. You can decide to change what you have asked for altogether and ask for something new.

A biblical example of God answering a prayer with “Not Until Some Conditions Are Met” can be found in II Chronicles 7:14.

  • God says, I Have Something Better For You

This type of an answer means that God is answering you with what I call a “proactive No.” By this I mean that God says to you, “While I’m not going to give you what you want, I am going to give you something that is much better, better for you and all concerned.”

For example: Sisters, if God, in His infinite wisdom, doesn’t give you that brother you have asked for, STAY FAITHFUL, for God will give you a brother who will be much better for you and your entire situation!

“Prayer is the voice of faith.” William Van Horne

A biblical example of this kind of answer can be found in Matthew 26:39.

“Be thankful that God’s answers are wiser than your answers.” William Culbertson

“God alone fully understands what each of us needs. We make mistakes continually and pray for things which would be harmful to us if we received them. Afterwards we see our mistakes and realize that God is good and wise in not giving us these things, even though we plead ever so earnestly for them.” O. Hallesby

When you pray, it is important that you believe that God’s answer, whatever it is, will always be for our benefit.

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

“Pray without ceasing.” I Thessalonians 5:17

Remember The Lord On Earth Day

Posted in Encouraging Bible Verses, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Sermons at 12:18 am by Administrator

Remember the Lord on Earth Day.

Sanctified believers wholeheartedly believe that the Lord is always at His best.

When God created Heaven and earth, He was at His best.

When God flung the stars into the sky, lit the moon and ignited the sun, He was at His best.

When God said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:1-3), He was at His best.

“For the Lord is a great God, and a great king above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the strength of the hills is His also. The sea is His and He made it; and His hands formed the dry land.” (Psalm 95:3-5)

“He stretcheth out the north over the empty place and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” (Job 26:7)

The great C. S. Lewis explains, “the whole universe–the very conditions of time and space under which it exists–are produced by the will of a perfect, timeless, unconditioned God who is above and outside all that He makes.” (Words To Live By: A Guide For The Merely Christian, 2007)

“For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it; He created it not in vain, He created it to be inhabited: I am the Lord and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:18)

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 24:1


Remember the Lord on Earth Day.

Praise The Lord!
