Fulfilling God’s Calling

We’ve made it clear in the past few weeks that God has a calling for all of His children. He made all of us originals in order to fulfill a unique calling. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” … Read more

Righteousness pt 11

It might seem odd to say this, but most of us don’t give much thought to our thoughts. I know we can have thoughts that don’t have any real significance: like what we’re going to have for lunch. However, I want to talk about the deep thoughts of our hearts. These are the thoughts that … Read more

Righteousness pt 6

Galatians 1:10b says “Am I trying to please people? If I still wanted to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Many people don’t want to be considered a servant. Everyone would rather be the boss. However, when Jesus’ disciples were arguing about who was the greatest He corrected them by saying … Read more

Righteousness pt 3

It’s safe to say that unless we were in a desperate situation we would never ask a favor from someone we believed disapproved of us. We’d expect that they would say “no” without thinking twice. When we don’t stand in our righteousness in Christ this is exactly how we’ll approach prayer. We know we need … Read more

Righteousness pt 2

When we’re around people that we know don’t approve of us, we act differently. We don’t show our real personality. Our natural instinct is to avoid eye contact and maybe even leave altogether. If we don’t shrink ourselves to avoid being noticed, we’ll act bigger than we are. We’ll be louder than normal. We’ll try … Read more

Righteousness

We all come into this world separated from God because of Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden. One act against God caused everyone in history to be born into sin. Ever since mankind was locked out of the Garden we’ve been trying to find a way back to God. Different people call it different … Read more

At All Times pt 8

We live in a world where self-exaltation is the norm. Musicians, actors and other public figures seem to be in a constant state of promoting and praising themselves. This has had a trickle-down effect to the rest of the world. It’s estimated that 93 million selfies are taken each day, and the word “selfie” was … Read more

At All Times pt 5

Throughout the week we can get caught up listening and giving attention to many things that aren’t of God. If we’re going through a rough patch in our marriage, we’ll think about that and turn every situation and argument over in our minds. If we’re out of a job, then we’ll think about what we … Read more

At All Times – Praise

We’ve all been in church during praise and worship and seen other people lifting their hands and singing, and wondered “Why?” Why do we sing in church? For those of us that grew up in church we sing because it’s what we’ve always done. Church always begins with a few songs. It’s our tradition. Even … Read more

God The Father: who is He to you?

We all have a different experience with our father. Some of us have memories of a great father who was present and active in our lives. Others may remember a father who was there, but was absent. And some of us probably never knew our fathers. However, this does not remove our need for a … Read more
