Baja Mission Trip

This week a few of us will be going to Baja, California.  We will be visiting the Church at Diaz-Ordaz. They are a fairly new congregation established not long ago. They have a piece of land that they acquired to build a place where they can worship. Five of us from Riverchase will be going…

VBS

It’s great to be a part of VBS. I get so excited about it every year.  This year we are learning about the life of Moses. What amazing things can happen when we let God direct our lives. It’s entertaining for adults but also educational for kids. Working this year with skits has taught me…

A Burden on Your Shoulders

  And the king granted them to me because the good hand of my God was on me. Nehemiah 2:8 You know how there are somethings that bother us throughout the day? There are things that just make us unhappy and we may be vocal about it or just keep it inside; however, they still bother us. Some of those…

Thank You So Much!

On behalf of the college class here at Riverchase, we would like to thank the ladies’ class. They have very gracious to bring us supper every Wednesday for the last three months. They have brought so many good dishes and have brought so much more than we could eat. I never thought I would say…

52 Days

52 Days What can you do with 52 days? You could start a new habit. You could work on a personal goal or maybe catch up on some house chores or you could take a vacation. A vacation for 52 days would be nice but what if you could use those 52 days to do…

Distractions

1 Corinthians 7:35 (NASB) “This I say for your own benefit; not to put a restraint upon you, but to promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord.” Recently my son was asked to do a devo for the teens. He was so excited to do it, and he was working…

From Useless to Useful Part II

To continue talking about John Mark we can see Paul didn’t think that John Mark would be of benefit to the kingdom and to the newly established churches. Things change with the right encouragement. In the later years, Paul mentions John Mark in three separate occasions. First in Philemon 1:24, he lists John Mark as…

From Useless to Useful

John Mark is an interesting character in the Bible. He is mentioned no less than 8 times in the Bible. What I know about him is mostly from the book of Acts. He was a relative of Barnabas. He was the reason why Paul and Barnabas departed ways and went to different locations to establish…

Listen To God

Isaiah 30:10 9 For this is a rebellious people, false sons, Sons who refuse to listen To the instruction of the Lord; 10 Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”; And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right, Speak to us pleasant words, Prophesy illusions. 11 “Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, Let us hear no more…

We Want A King

This scripture text reminds me that people will always find wrong. Although they have it good, there is always something to complain about. The people were being taken care of by God, and the reason their situation was bad, because they forgot the Lord. They blame God for the nations coming to attack them when…
