  • Faith Through The Journey

    Contributed on Sep 7, 2023

    In Hebrews 10: 19-25, together, we are encouraged to 1) Draw Near in Faith (Hebrews 10:19-22), 2) Hold Fast in Hope (Hebrews 10:23) and 3) Encourage in Love (Hebrews 10:24–25).

    Hebrews 10:19-25. [19]Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, [20]by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, [21]and since we have a great priest over the house of God, [22]let us draw near more

  • Kicking Off The Dust

    Contributed on Aug 24, 2023

    All who proclaim salvation in Christ must be 1) Content with the Lord’s Provision (Luke 10:2-4), 2) Faithful to the Lord’s Message (Luke 10:5–9), and 3) Diligent to declare Judgment (Luke 10:10–12).

    Luke 10:1-12. [1] After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. [2] And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the more

  • Return To Me

    Contributed on Aug 11, 2023

    In Joel 2:12-17, the prophet renews his impassioned plea to return unto the Lord through a call for repentance. This call has two facets in first a 1) Personal (Joel 2:12–14) then a 2) Corporate response (Joel 2:15–17) to God.

    Joel 2:12–17. 12 “Yet even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; 13 and rend your hearts and not your garments.” Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he more

  • A Father & His Family

    Contributed on Jun 20, 2023

    Through wise, godly counsel, in Colossians 3:19-21 the Apostle Paul shows the roles, responsibilities, attitudes and actions for members of a godly family, through: 1) A Word to Husbands (Colossians 3:19), 2) A Word to Children (Colossians 3:20), 3) A Word to Parents (Colossians 3:21).

    Colossians 3:19–21 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. 20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. (ESV) One of the most terrifying moments of a not-yet-married man’s life more

  • Revealing God's Plan

    Contributed on Mar 10, 2023

    In Romans 11:25-32, Paul explains why God has preserved a Remnant of Israel in order to show His glory. In this we can see how God is glorified in His: 1) Sovereignty (Romans 11:25–26a), in 2) Integrity Romans 11:26b–29), and in His 3) Generosity (Romans 11:30–32).

    Romans 11:25-32. 25 Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from more

    Contributed on Jun 28, 2009

    SECURITY Consider this story in relying upon God: The 3-year-old felt secure in his father’s arms as Dad stood in the middle of the pool. But Dad, for fun, began walking slowly toward the deep end, gently chanting, “Deeper and deeper and deeper,” as the water rose higher and higher on the child. more

    Contributed on Jun 15, 2009

    YOUR GRUMBLING GOES WITH YOU There was a boy named Grumble Tone who ran away to sea, "I’m sick of things on land," he said, "as sick as I can be; A life upon the bounding wave will suit a lad like me!" The seething ocean billows failed to stimulate his mirth, For he did not like the vessel, more

    1938 God Moves In Mysterious Ways At age 32, William Cowper passed through a great crisis in his life. He tried to end his life by taking laudanum.

    Contributed on Jun 8, 2009

    The foolishness of trying to cover up our sin is well illustrated with the story of the drunk husband who snuck up the stairs quietly.
