I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

Romans 8:9-11

Relax, Read and Reflect
Prayer- Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen
9You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. 10But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
How do we know if we are a Christian? Is there a test? From time to time we all worry about this. The answer is fairly simple; what do you have in your heart? If you have the Spirit of Christ in you, you are a Christian-a follower of Christ. If you don’t, you do not belong to Christ. Those who have the Spirit in them will never die. Those that do not need to fear death, because death is their end. Christ died for us, so that we may live. That, is the good news.
Prayer- Lord, Help us keep Your Spirit whiten us, and help us share the Spirit with others. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
