Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria - the local places! We aren't called to make disciples of just the "uttermost parts of the world." We're commanded to start first with our neighbors and our communities. What better way to do that than to serve a local community with a new church plant....
God created us for relationship - we need the fellowship of other believers! It's vital for believers to use their giftings, teach each other, learn from one another, and fellowship together. Surround yourself with Jesus-lovers who will encourage you to stand strong on the Word!
PRIDE - it's at the root of most any other sin with which we struggle. The difference between humility and pride is often in who gets the glory for what's going on in our lives. For the believer, is there ever a time for "good" pride - sure....Paul had some...check it out....
Communication...whaaa?? Oh, my - it's vital that we communicate with our spouse! Yes - we do speak different languages sometimes - ha! But we can learn to hear what the other is saying if we give it some honest, genuine effort.
Happy Resurrection Day!
Jesus - the First Fruits of the resurrection! "First Fruits" means there is more yet to come...He was the first fruits....we will be part of the rest! Come hear the hope we have for eternity!
The only holidays started by God are the Feasts of the Lord. Come hear why they are important and how Jesus fulfilled the first 3 while on earth. This is awesome stuff!
The difference between "I'm sorry," "Will you forgive me," and "I repent" can be eternal. Join us to find out which one produces the fruit for which our God is looking...
Life is full of disappointments! Many things are just simply out of our control. Our response to disappointment can be positive even while facing difficult things.....
Sin vs Godliness - that's the real battle going on when man says "NO" to God...everything from life circumstances to sexuality to gender identity. We must decide now to stand for His truth no matter what society or our own mind says. Sin will never be Godly - let's quit trying to make it so!
Money plays no part in the heavenly realm....yet, it controls a lot of what we do here on earth! How we handle it can have eternal consequences. Does our Lord have access to our finances, or do we keep those to ourselves and refuse to surrender that part of our lives to Him?
Joshua was ready for what the Lord had for him...even if he didn't understand the timing or the method. He still saw the results of the miracles of God. Are you ready?
Love is part of the very character of God - He can't not love us! Many people struggle with that knowledge when they find themselves in bad situations or have tragedies happen in their lives. His love for us is not measured in life circumstances but rather in Who He is and what He's done for us.
There is only One King, One Lord, One Creator. Only He is worthy of all worship and honor.
This last election cycle should be a wake-up call to believers. So many prophets were wrong. So many people were fixated on their candidate winning that many quit hearing God and simply listened to what agreed with their desires. Church, when the noise gets loud, we must listen for His voice alone
Right to Life Sunday! Join us as we take a look at some awesome women in the Old Testament who feared God. The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom - these 2 women walked in the fear of the Lord in deciding to not obey their king because they had knowledge and wisdom from Him.
Jer 2:13 says that we've left the Fountain of Living Waters in order to pour into broken cisterns that can't hold any water. When we try to satisfy with other things the part of us that needs Jesus...we're just pouring water into a broken container. Let's get back to the clear, refreshing Fountain!
Friends, we are not struggling against flesh and blood: our government, elected leaders, media, etc. We are fighting spiritual forces that are determined to destroy our nation, our heritage, and our churches! Join us in unpacking what Scripture says we need to do about the battle in front of us.
As we swing into a New Year, let us not forget the basics needed to walk out our faith daily!
