Pray For Your Bully

Pray For Your Bully Romans 12:17-19     17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. Why does God want us to pray for the people who bully us and others? We…

Pride Divides Us

Pride Divides UsJames 4:6b “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.What does it tell us about God that He opposes the proud? God openly stands against us if we are prideful. If we trust ourselves more than Christ, we declare battle with God. If pride causes fights, then humility brings peace. If we want our relationships with our family members to improve, then we need to practice humility. God will empower us to change if we humble…

What Is The Source Of Your Joy?

God isn’t focused on your comfort He’s concerned about your Character. We are so focused on making our lives easier, while God has a completely different perspective. 1 Timothy 6:6-7 Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. Are you content with what you have? We’ve all heard the saying, “He who dies with the most toys wins”, but none of us gets to take any of…

Good Friday

Good Friday At Home Romans 5:6-8 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. This year, for the Good Friday Service, we are encouraging our church family to connect with…

What purpose could God possibly have in letting us endure pain?

What purpose could God possibly have in letting us endure pain? Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at…

Humility Keeps Us Standing

Humility Keeps Us StandingIs there any area of your life where pride has gotten a foothold? What do you think caused this to happen?1 Peter 5:5-7 Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for…

Our Purpose Comes From God’s Revelation

Our Purpose Comes From God’s Revelation How have your goals affected other people? When you seek God first, how do your goals change? Jeremiah 17:5-10 “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land…

God doesn’t just give us a few times to…

Pray Before You Push Send!

Online rage is a lot like road rage. We are the captain of our own area, and no one should dare to challenge our authority. We are so full of ourselves when we take command of our lives that we see differing ideas as a personal attack. If you find yourself getting in online battles, try something new and you might experience a different outcome. Remember, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Before push send and launch your missiles…

God Is Bigger Than Our Problems

King Jehoshaphat learn that armies from Edom had banded together to wage war against him and his people. What did Jehoshaphat do in response? Did he run, hide, puff up? 2 Chronicles 20:3-9 Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah. 4 The people of Judah came together to seek help from the Lord; indeed, they came from every town in Judah to seek him. Then Jehoshaphat stood up in the assembly…

What’s the danger of living your life according to your feelings?

What’s the danger of living your life according to your feelings? Hebrews 11:27 By faith Moses left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. We live in a world that believes in doing whatever feels good at the moment, but living by our feelings makes us easy to manipulate. Feelings are very real, but they are often false. Feelings can make us anxious, even when we when there is nothing to fear.…

Do You Find Prayer A Duty Or A Delight?

Do You Find Prayer A Duty Or A Delight? Why is God’s goodness vital to our motivation to pray? If, knowing who God is, shapes the way we pray, then what is God really like? God is all-knowing and all-powerful. He is holy, just, kind and loving. Psalm 100:5 For the Lord is always good.

What’s holding you back from serving God now?

What’s holding you back from serving God now? Jeremiah 1:5 “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.    Before you were born I set you apart    and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” God is outside of time as the creator of time. All believers are set apart for service and ministry that God appointed us to accomplish before we were born. It’s His work that we are called to carry out. Ephesians 2:8-10                                                                     For it…

Your Past Doesn’t Control Your Future

Romans 8:28-31And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who lovehim, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those Godforeknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, thathe might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those hepredestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those hejustified, he also glorified. 31 What, then, shall we say in response to thesethings? If…

How has your new identity in Christ changed your life?

Corinthians 5:17 says, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” Jesus loves to bless and change us to be more like Him. Sometimes in the scriptures He would give a person a nickname to represent their new calling and identity. John 1:42 Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter).In John 1:42 the name “Peter”…
