This is The Way, Walk in It

God’s desire is that we walk down the path He lays before us. This path begins with the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus; “For My Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life” (John 6:40). The path continues with living a life […]

Step off the Shore

Step off the Shore

Joshua 3:15-16

When Moses died, God assigned Joshua to the position of leadership. The people of Israel needed to know God approved of Joshua and would continue to direct them as they entered the land of Canaan.

The Final Victory

The Final Victory

John 16:33

Today, all over the world, there are people facing situations which threaten to send everything they hold dear crashing to the ground.

Attitude of Encouragement

Attitude of Encouragement

1 Thessalonians 2:11-12

EVERYONE needs encouragement. No matter how secure and confident someone may appear, everyone needs to be reassured, built up, and comforted. And we are all called to minister to one another, every day, with encouragement; “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today” (Hebrews 3:13). Therefore, we are all called to […]

Entrusted With His Secret

Entrusted With His Secret

1 Corinthians 4:1-2

We have been given an incredible gift.

Tested By Praise

Tested By Praise

Proverbs 27:21

The longer and closer we walk with God, the more we realize how He uses every opportunity to shape and mold us – to chip, file, and sand the rough edges – as we are gradually “conformed to the likeness of His Son” (Romans 8:29). This is His desire for everyone who trusts in Jesus […]

Sow To Please The Spirit

Sow To Please The Spirit

Galatians 6:7-9

In the spring, a farmer prepares the soil, plants the seed, and waits several days for the first signs of life. Many weeks pass before a few inches of growth occur and several months go by before it’s time to harvest. Much hard work and patience go into reaping a bountiful crop. The soil of […]

Desires of Our Heart

Desires of Our Heart

Psalm 37:4

We often talk about the gift of Salvation as a transformation of the heart. Jesus came to give us eternal life through faith in Him and His sacrifice on the cross. His death established a new covenant for all who would come to Him in faith; “This is My blood of the covenant, which is […]

Prevent The Sparks

Prevent The Sparks

James 3:5-6

Every year, sparks from hot campfires or careless matches start fires which consume millions of trees in beautiful forests. Once begun, these fires move unrelentingly through hills and valleys – nothing is safe from the fury of the flames. Every year, sparks from hot tempers or careless words start fires which consume millions of lives […]

Teach The World His Grace

Teach The World His Grace

John 13:34

When Jesus was asked to name the greatest commandment, He said; “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37). Jesus clearly said the most important thing we can do in this life is to love God with absolutely every part of our […]

An Unsearchable Love

An Unsearchable Love

Romans 11:33-36

As I look back through the Scriptural account of history, I can see how God sent His Son to be born in a manger, grow and live among us, and die for our sins upon a cross. I can clearly see how the sacrifice of Jesus allows us, through faith, to enter into God’s presence. […]

Live in His Presence

Live in His Presence

Matthew 28:20

In the message “Enter His Sanctuary” we saw how the seemingly complex and confusing portions of our life are most often made clear as we open the door of our heart and enter His sanctuary. His ways are much higher than ours, “as the heavens are higher than the earth” (Isaiah 55:9), and His true […]
