    At birth Samson was called into a Nazirite vow. It consisted of never tasting alcohol, staying away from the dead, and never cutting the hair. (A lifestyle of outward consecration.) 1. Love God. 2. Loving our neighbor.

    One More Time Judges 16:28NKJ Then Samson called to the Lord, saying, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!” At birth Samson was called ...read more

  • Beyond Strict Series

    Contributed by Vic Folkert on Apr 3, 2007

    Morality is more than "strict" or "lax". It begins in the heart, develops moral principles and guidlines, and ultimately is in the context of a relationship with God who cares

    Beyond Strict Mark 2:23-3:6 Illus: I placed signs on the wall on either side of the platform: "strict" and "lax", moving back and forth toward one or the other at appropriate times. How strict should you be? How strict should you be with your kids? How strict should you be with yourself? We ...read more

  • Putting On All Of God's Armor

    based on 3 ratings

    You wouldn’t think of leaving the house without the proper clothes on, right? We wouldn’t dare send our soldiers into battle without any armor and weapons, right? Then why are we so lax when it comes to spiritual battle?

  • Too Busy To Work

    Contributed by Mark Opperman on May 29, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    We can apply this principle of diligence to our spiritual lives, not simply our jobs. If we become lax or idle in our pursuit of God (worship, prayer, service, etc.), we will find ourselves missing God’s will.

    Too Busy to Work 2 Thessalonians 3:6-12 6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not ...read more

  • Faith Or Works? Series

    Contributed by Nickolas Kooi on Sep 12, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    In James 2, we see one of the most challenging passages of Scripture. However, when seen in context, James' point becomes clear and understood.

    The English language can be a very challenging language to learn. Part of that is because many ordinary words that we use in everyday conversation can have many different meanings. Take the word “run,” for example, which according to dictionary.com, has over 179 different meanings for the word. ...read more

  • A Tale Of Two Trials Series

    Contributed by Terry Blankenship on Mar 5, 2013

    Trials and temptations will come. One tempts you to sin against God while the other tests you to trust in God. Which will you follow?
