Building on the Rock


By Benjamin H. Liles

          You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and crushed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were crushed all at the same time and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

About - Profile


          I truly started coming to Christ back in December of 2000. It was during a Billy Graham crusade event. I felt God putting it on my heart that if I didn't come to Him I never would come to His saving grace. At least that's how I felt the prompting in my heart. It wasn't until after I got married to my wife in 2009 that I was properly baptized; it was December 24 that happened. Since then I felt more and more I needed to do something with my life to show the faith I had in that God saves and gives mercy to whom He will give mercy to.

The Sacrifice of Jesus


By Benjamin H. Liles

          For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.
                                                                                              ~ John 10:17-18, New American Standard

To Die in Wickedness


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Now as for you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus you have spoken, saying, “Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we are rotting away in them; how then can we survive?”’ Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! 

Gospel of Jesus to the World


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Tell me what you think about this: A man had two sons. He went to the first son and said, ‘Son, go and work today in my vineyard.’ The son answered, ‘I will not go.’ But later the son changed his mind and went. Then the father went to the other son and said, ‘Son, go and work today in my vineyard.' The son answered, ‘Yes, sir, I will,’ but he did not go. Which of the two sons obeyed his father?”

Selfless Love: A Good Friday Post


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and He told the disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” Taking along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. Then He said to them, “My soul is swallowed up in sorrow —to the point of death. Remain here and stay awake with Me.” Going a little farther, He fell face down and prayed, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will." 
                                                                             ~ Matthew 26:36-56, Holman Christian Standard
