Jesus, we want to worship you! We praise Your holy name and ask that you would bless us as we worship You in spirit and truth. You are worthy and wonderful, Lord. Thank You for all that You are and for everything that is done on our behalf. We praise You and bless You, Lord. ???God is spirit, and his worshipers  must worship in spirit and truth.???  John 4:24

Prayer

I do not undertake to say       That literal answers come from Heaven,  But I know this???that when I pray       A comfort, a support is given  That helps me rise o???er earthly things  As larks soar up on airy wings.  In vain the wise philosopher       Points out to me my fabric???s flaws,  In vain the scientists aver       That ???all things are controlled by laws.???  My life has taught me day by day  That it availeth much to pray.  I do not stop to...

The Right Place

Posted by [email protected] on January 17, 2015 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (0)
You shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8 People can???t believe in Jesus If the gospel they don???t hear, So we must proclaim its message To the world- both far and near. -Sper Each and every one of us has the opportunity to share the gospel to people. No matter where we are, we can tell someone about the love of Jesus Christ. Who can you tell today? Any place is the right place to witness for Christ.

Our Starting Place

Posted by [email protected] on January 13, 2015 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)
Our Christian lives never begin with what we must do, but rather what Jesus has already done. Being seated with Christ really is our starting place. Its is important to understand this because it means that everything in our lives begins from a place of rest. As we are still before the Lord we have no arguments, no opinions, and no challenges that we are presenting to Him that He doesn???t already know. We lay it all down, content with the knowledge that He is God all by Himself, and kn... Read Full Post »

Love

God so loved me that He gave  Jesus for my sins to die;  Jesus loved me in the grave,  Jesus loves me still on high,--  Father-love and Saviour-love,  Mine on earth and mine above!  Love, from highest heights that stooped,--  Love, to deepest depths that came,--  Love, that 'neath my burden drooped,--  Bore my anguish and my shame--  Died, that I may never die,--  Living, lifts me to the sky!  Love, the arm that reached me first,--  Love, the hand that raised me up,...

Bobbing For Apples

Posted by [email protected] on January 6, 2015 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)
Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10 I remember bobbing for apples when I was a kid, a game that requires you to place your hands behind your back. Attempting to grab a floating apple with your teeth without use of either hand, in a tub of water. Which I might add if you???ve never done this, is rather frustrating to say the least. This experience reminds me of the necessity of our hands. We eat with them, greet with them, and use them to do just about everything that is essential... Read Full Post »

Our Motivation Challenged

Posted by [email protected] on January 2, 2015 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)
Why we do what we do is crucially important, as it relates to our service to God, working lives, and career. This is why Paul challenged the Ephesians to do their work, ??? not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.??? We should check our motives in everything that we do. If we do any work or service to merely earn ???pay???, whether for accolades, approval from a ... Read Full Post »

Be Of Good Cheer

In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.??? John 16:33 So many of us expect that life should always be happy and pain-free. I admit from time to time that I find myself pondering the question, ???Why can???t every day be a good day???? Admit it, wouldn???t that be great? Of course! Well, that isn???t what the Bible teaches. For the believer, this world is a place of highs, lows, living, and learning. The circumstances in life are growing us... Read Full Post »

Nobody Greater

Nobody is greater than Jesus. He has no competition on earth or in the heavens. His kingdom is above all kingdoms and His throne above all thrones. He is creator of all things and by Him everything is held together. Jesus, ???KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.??? Revelation 19:16 ???For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.??? Romans 11:36 NIV

Promises of God

One thing is certain, when we seek after the Lord we will not and can not be disappointed. The beauty in every promise of God is not only in what we find, but who we find as the result of our seeking Him. "Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts." Colossians 3:15 NLT
