Where Your Treasure Is…

Where Your Treasure Is… Look at 1 Corinthians 12:12, “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.” We should look at the local church as our own body. We should consider that just as we personally have needs, the local church has…

Faith Fix: Will You Pass the Pop Quiz?

2 Timothy 4:2-4 says, “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season…” The devil is known for pop quizzes. Though this is written to a young pastor, the principle of being ready is for us all. No Christian ought to be surprised when a test or a trial comes their way, because the Word promised it would happen. (James…

Faithfulness & Increase

Faithfulness & Increase Matthew 25:21  His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ I was at a local business that I frequent, when some revelation about stewardship came to me. See, God will teach you if you…

Go On With God

Go On With God I was cleaning up a bit of our Christmas decorations and started thinking about how much we look forward to Christmas.  We look forward to the excitement of the day and the memories we will get to create.  When Christmas is over we look forward to New Year’s for the same reasons.  Maybe we have a vacation coming…

Giving, Good Tidings, Love & Celebration

Giving, Good Tidings, Love & Celebration The Christmas season seems to always make people a little bit more generous, a little more pleasant, a little more loving, and a little more joyous. Why is this? Because whether we realize it or not, Jesus is at the heart of this season, or at least He’s at the forefront.  Even secular radio stations and…

When You’re In a Funk

When You’re In a Funk Have you ever felt like you just want to quit? Have you ever felt like it’s just all too much…life and all the responsibility and this standing in faith stuff? Well, I know I have. There are times where I feel like a spiritual loser, moments where I take thoughts that I shouldn’t, instances where I let…

Who Do You Serve

Who Do You Serve Matthew 6:24 (NKJV) 24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. In context, this scripture is about money but the principle is the same. You are always serving someone…

Committed Acquaintance

Committed Acquaintance 2 Timothy 1:12 (NKJV) For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. Our number one priority as a believer in Christ is to get acquainted with God. In fact, it…

Trust In Him

Trust In Him Sometimes as a parent, and especially a mother,  it’s a challenge to separate your emotional love and care for your children from worrying for your children. Anyone who has ever had a mother or has ever been a mother, is familiar with this sort of worrywart nature. It’s almost as if you’re taught unless you worry, you’re not a…

You Can’t Have God Without The Local Church

You Can’t Have God Without The Local Church Ephesians 4:8Therefore He says:“ When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.” The first thing Christ did when He ascended to Heaven after He defeated the grave was give gifts to mankind. These gifts were specific, tailored to the most fundamental human needs. He goes on to tell us what…
