    Hope for the new year - it may look hopeless, but God sees it differently.

    ALL IS WELL IN 2012 The theme God gave me for the New Year is this: “All is Well in 2012.” You may be thinking, ‘How can you say, ‘All is well in 2012’ when: -Islam is destroying the Middle East? -Communism is destroying China?-Hinduism is destroying ...read more

    In order to have a maximum yield, grape vines need lots of sunlight, just the right amount of rain, and pruning at the right time....Since chastening and pruning are both painful, how can we distinguish between them?

    GRAPE EXPECTATIONS part 2 Last week we started learning about the "cultivation of grapes." In order to have a maximum yield, grape vines need lots of sunlight, just the right amount of rain, and pruning at the right time. If a branch is bearing no fruit, the vinedresser ...read more

  • Grape Expectations Part 1 Series

    Contributed by James Westervelt on Apr 17, 2002
    based on 174 ratings
     | 8,625 views

    The Holy Spirit is not interested in producing a bunch of grapes with one big, fat grape and eight little, tiny grapes; but He wants us to grow in all nine characteristics simultaneously.

    We noticed when we first started this study that these qualities are called the FRUIT of the Spirit, not the FRUITS of the Spirit. So, "Conformity to Christ" is not symbolized by a "fruit salad," but by one multifaceted fruit. What do you think that fruit would be? A Bunch of GRAPES. ...read more

    In one earth-shattering moment, Jesus conquered the three greatest enemies of mankind: SIN, SATAN and the SECOND DEATH.

    RESURRECTION VICTORY! There have been people who have predicted the time of their own death, but there is only one person who not only predicted the time of His death, but also the day of His resurrection, and that person is Jesus Christ the Lord! In John chapter 2, beginning ...read more

  • Pear Of Goodness Series

    Contributed by James Westervelt on Mar 30, 2002
    based on 97 ratings
     | 7,603 views

    I’ve chosen a pear to represent goodness, because kindness and goodness are a "pair." Kindness and goodness go "hand-in-hand."

    THE PEAR OF GOODNESS We are studying the FRUIT of the Spirit - The "Christ-like character" which the Holy Spirit produces in us - when we abide in Christ - when we maintain a close personal relationship with Him. -We’ve been seeking to develop the "INNER FRUIT" first - love, ...read more

  • Orange Of Faithfulness Series

    Contributed by James Westervelt on Mar 30, 2002
    based on 164 ratings
     | 11,174 views

    The word for "faithfulness" is the same word translated "faith." It is our faith in the faithfulness of God that enables us to be faithful to Him and to one another.

    THE ORANGE OF FAITHFULNESS Are you getting tired of fruit? I hope not, because our "fruit salad" is only 2/3 finished. We’ve considered the INNER FRUIT: Love, Joy and Peace. We’ve studied the OUTWARD FRUIT: Patience, Kindness and Goodness. But we have yet to dissect the ...read more

  • Mango Of Meekness Series

    Contributed by James Westervelt on Mar 30, 2002
    based on 154 ratings
     | 9,431 views

    This is what Biblical meekness is all about: "Strength under control," "being unoccupied with self and genuinely concerned for God and others." It is the exact opposite of "self-assertiveness" and "self-interest."

    based on 106 ratings
     | 12,953 views

    Solomon, the richest man in the world, made this observation: "Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings - they fly away as an eagle toward heaven." Prov. 23:5

    "MONEY MATTERS" MONEY - it is the most important value in American society, it is absolutely essential for existence, it is one thing almost everyone wishes they had more of, it is the subject which causes more family arguments than all others combined. Solomon, the ...read more

  • Why??

    Contributed by James Westervelt on Mar 12, 2002
    based on 57 ratings
     | 2,440 views

    WHY do bad things happen to good people? WHY would a loving God allow awful tragedies such as Sept. 11th?

    WHY do bad things happen to good people? WHY would a loving God allow awful tragedies? I don’t believe anyone can fully answer such questions. But I do know that we live in a world which is suffering the consequences of sin. Way back in the beginning of time, people chose to disobey God and ...read more

    based on 64 ratings
     | 7,617 views

    "It is possible to be too big for God to use you but never too small for God to use you!"

    LOWERED TO BE LIFTED UP When Joy and I lived in Manville, NJ, we had a beautiful magnolia tree in our side yard. However, the roots were so persistent, that they grew right through the sewer pipes and caused a clog that only roto-rooter could fix. So we cut down our lovely tree, ...read more

    based on 128 ratings
     | 10,565 views

    I’ve chosen the strawberry to represent self-control, because it is one fruit that I find very difficult to control myself in eating.

    THE STRAWBERRY OF SELF-CONTROL Review: The ORANGE OF FAITHFULNESS - "The Christ-like quality of dependability: stability in our relationship with God, reliability in our relationship with others." The MANGO OF MEEKNESS - "The Christ-like quality of servanthood: humility in our ...read more

    Contributed by James Westervelt on Jan 9, 2002
    based on 63 ratings
     | 1,342 views

    The question is NOT: "Is your computer Y2K compliant?" But rather: "Are YOU Y2K compliant?" Are you ready for the new millenium?

    ARE YOU Y2K COMPLIANT? We’ve heard a lot lately about computers and the year 2000. Our bank and electric company have both written to inform us that their computers are indeed Y2K compliant.

    God wants us to stop living on "experiences PAST," and to move on to new things He wants to do in our lives today!

    ALL THINGS NEW IN 2002 Each December as we approach the New Year, I ask the Lord to give me a theme for the days that lie ahead. This year, the theme that came to mind is: "All Things New in 2002." This concept is based on 2 Cor. 5:17 - "Therefore, if anyone be in Christ, he is a new ...read more
