Opportunity To Praise

There are going to be days when we just don’t feel like being thankful – we wake up and don’t seem able to praise. We know we should “rejoice in the Lord always” (Philippians 4:4); we’re trying to learn “the secret of being content in any and every situation” (Philippians 4:12); and we want to […]

Where Are You

All over the world, people are asking how to strengthen their relationship with God. Many have wandered from His path and become entangled in the weeds. We never plan to leave God’s path and become entangled; rather, it seems we simply take a wrong turn and then drift through small steps of compromise. How does […]

Boundary Line of Truth

In the message “Did God Really Say” we saw how the devil began his deception by causing Eve to doubt what God said; “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat…’?” (Genesis 3:1). He then said God had lied and was actually keeping Eve from something beneficial; “God knows that when you eat of it […]

Did God Really Say

The first two chapters of the Bible tell how, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden and created Eve as his companion and helper. Life in the garden was good, but it didn’t take long for the deception of the devil to […]

Highly Valued Mist

In the message “More Than Grasshoppers” we considered the spies who were sent into the promised land to evaluate the enemy. We saw that without a proper understanding of God and how we fit into His plan, the enemies in our life will always appear as undefeatable giants. This sense of walking among the giants […]

More Than Grasshoppers

After Moses led the Israelites out of Egyptian slavery, they were guided by God to the edge of Canaan – the land promised to Abraham. God instructed Moses to send twelve men to explore the land; “See what the land is like and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or […]

Into His Hands

A life lived by fully trusting God begins with a simple faith in the forgiveness offered through Jesus. But this simple faith will grow as we apply it to the varied and difficult circumstances which inevitably come our way. Not many of us begin with the faith of Peter; “Lord, if it’s You, tell me […]

Consider Him Who Endured

In the messages “Cords of Encouragement” and “Defeated Lions And Bears” we considered our role in the Body, or Family, of Christ. We saw that as we walk together down God’s path, we must assume a certain level of responsibility for one another. We must encourage our Brothers and Sisters when they are down and […]

Defeated Lions And Bears

In the message “Cords of Encouragement” we saw the importance – even the necessity – of encouraging one another. We have been joined together as the Body of Christ; and for this Body to function properly, we must all be encouraged to draw closer to God, to trust Him more and love Him with all […]

Cords of Encouragement

In the message “Reconcile With One Another” we saw how it’s part of God’s plan for us, through repentance and faith in Jesus, to be reconciled with our Heavenly Father, and then to mend and strengthen relationships with others. Not only do our relationships give us opportunities to express our love and gratitude to God, […]

Reconcile With One Another

Malachi served as a prophet to Israel about four hundred years before the birth of Jesus. He brought a message from God which reminded the people of His love, and rebuked them for their disrespectful worship. But through Malachi, God ended the Old Testament with a prophesy about future restoration. Malachi 4:5-6“I will send you […]

Filled With Awe

After Jesus had risen from the dead and “was taken up into Heaven” (Luke 24:51), those who believed in Him “joined together constantly in prayer” (Acts 1:14), “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching” (Acts 2:42), and “ate together with glad and sincere hearts” (Acts 2:46). The first believers did naturally what we try to implement […]
