Remember This….

Romans 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. (NIV) Do you know what happened in history on March 6? As I’m writing this article I’m also watching a show called,…

Nothing More To Add

1 John 1:5-10 5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if…

Missions

Acts 13: 47 For so the Lord has commanded us, ‘I have placed You as a light for the Gentiles, that You may bring salvation to the end of the earth.’” 48 When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to…

Mission Work

Acts 20: 24 But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God. (NASB) What does it mean to do mission work? A…

Fellowship: Give and Take

Genesis 2: 18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (NASB)   Fellowship is one of those words that when I think of it, I think of food, friends, laugher and a church building. While I was reading a book…

Thoughts on Youth

Do you remember when you were young? I mean younger. The last thing on my mind was being an example for anyone else. I was worried about having fun and how I looked. I wasn’t looking for people to look like me. I was concerned about looking like someone else. In the Greek culture, you…

Are You Finished?

John 19: 28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill the Scripture, said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so, they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30…

Resolution, Day 1

Proverbs 16:9 The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. (NASB)   By today you have probably made your resolutions. Like me, you have already started. This year is going to be different because I already have an accountability friend who is going to help me keep true to my…
