The One Another Church
December 08, 2013 10:14 AM PST
Beginning with the love God has for us, we should love God. And with that same love, we should love one another. God created us with the need for one another and the need for Him. We exist for one another and we fulfill needs for one another. It should become quite apparent that as a church, we must become one another as we are for God.Does Jesus Fit Into Your Life?
December 01, 2013 02:52 PM PST
Acts 17:28 clearly states that not only does Jesus fit into our life, He is our life. The question may be better stated by asking if you have let Jesus into your life. You can be buried and raised with Jesus, put on Jesus, and live in eternity with Jesus. How does that fit look on you now?The Prayer of Jesus
November 24, 2013 10:05 AM PST
Many prayers did Jesus render to our Father and for a great many reasons. But it might be certain to say He did it primarily to render praise and glory to the Father. You see, Christ ensured that all would know to whom He gave full credit to for all He said and did. Nothing happened without going to the Father first and remained with Him throughout. That's Jesus' prayer for us, that we remain with Him.No Greater Love
November 17, 2013 10:17 AM PST
A definition of and a description of a love that could not be shown any greater way is the love Christ has for us, and a love He expects from us. How do we show that love to Him, to others, and to this society? Many answers exist, but primarily it is because He is, others are, and society needs it.I Am the True Vine
November 10, 2013 10:07 AM PST
In this passage, Jesus uses the symbolism and metaphor that genuinely describes the relationship He has with us, and us with Him. The mutual and beneficial coexistence of our abidance in His love is vital to staying in God's mercy and grace, and the cost of being outside that love is also clearly expressed.Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
November 03, 2013 10:05 AM PST
Promise and reason remain fundamental with this statement by Jesus. With that hope, there is mercy, and Jesus is the door, the way, the truth, and the life that leads to the house of God.Jesus Washed Feet
October 27, 2013 10:13 AM PDT
One of the greatest, and not only last, but everlasting lessons Jesus rendered to His disciples before His death, was given in total humility. Jesus came to teach and to serve, and in His act of washing feet, He both taught and served, showing that it is quite imperative to be not only hearers of His teaching, but to also be doers of that teaching.What Is the Church?
October 20, 2013 10:16 AM PDT
The first image you might picture with this question is a building of some kind. But rather, the church is defined by a who or a group that have common interests in their faith, a unified purpose, and a desire to share in one another's lives through a common love that originates from God. Most importantly, the church is the bride of Christ, with Christ, and only Christ, as its head.I Am the Good Shepherd
October 13, 2013 10:09 AM PDT
Jesus not only tells us He is the Shepherd and the door through which His sheep enter; He proves it through action as a Shepherd - He knows His sheep and would willingly extend everything He has for the sheep - even His life. That distinction makes Him the Good Shepherd and the true love that is exhibited.Do You Belong?
October 06, 2013 10:04 AM PDT
The direction this question leads us today is to whom you belong in your faith. If you belong to God as one of His children, you would love Him. You would listen to Him. You would love His Son, Jesus. You would listen to the truth of His Son. The tragic alternative to this is placing the devil as your father - the father of lies.Leaving So Soon?
September 29, 2013 10:08 AM PDT
This might be a pretty tough situation to face if Jesus asked this question to you personally as you prepared to leave His fold. Since Jesus invited you, showed you the way enticed with His love, gave His life to provide you redemption, and awaits your presence with God Himself, to whom shall you turn if it isn't Jesus?Do You Want to be Well?
September 22, 2013 10:01 AM PDT
Spiritual wellness and healing was typically the motive behind stories about Jesus. The situations of His teachings provided the context for how the life of sin would lead to destruction, however, repentance leading to baptism is where healing is found and a life with God.Give Me a Drink
September 15, 2013 10:24 AM PDT
Jesus has yet another opportunity to teach using the symbolism of water. In this case, a Jew joining interchange with a Samaritan over the imagery of water. Take a moment and think about the presence of water and the symbolism of water in so many of Jesus' teachings. Our worship to God as Christians has many connections to water as this illustrates.Jesus and John Were Baptizing
September 08, 2013 10:08 AM PDT
An interesting point to realize in Jesus' early ministry is the relationship John the baptizer had with Christ, the Messiah. Of course, neither had conflict with the other, as John was clearly subservient to the message and person of Christ, but the importance of baptism in that message is told so well here.The First Miracle
August 25, 2013 10:03 AM PDT
How wonderful it must have been to actually see the power of God at work through the miracles of Jesus and His apostles during that age. The revelation and manifestation of God's Son here an Earth and the work He did in His ministry is seldom fully realized except to know that even today, the effects of His work and teachings still carry the full emphasis, meaning, and reward as they did then.In the Beginning Was the Word
August 18, 2013 10:20 AM PDT
In our limited comprehension of time, beginning, and ending, our concept of always, time without bound, and everlasting existence, is difficult to place meaning. Our understanding needs to surround the reality of our God before "the beginning", an always before there was a universe. This is the power of our God and we need to realize we are made like Him, as a spirit, and we can once again be adjoined to Him for that everlasting without end.Run to Win
August 11, 2013 10:17 AM PDT
The apostle Paul teaches us how to be a Christian and how to live as a Christian that will face struggles and failures. He instructs us to run, compete, and fight to win the prize of salvation. This kind of reward doesn't come to those who do not train, who do not persevere, and do not run the race to win. God is our coach who has told us the rules of the race and He expects nothing less than full obedience to those rules, because those rules make us all winners.If Not Jesus...
August 04, 2013 10:06 AM PDT
A question one might ask after first sensing that there are issues beyond what this life can answer. Where will you turn when you fail - when this life has no answer? The answer IS Jesus. If not Jesus, then who?Understand What the Will of God Is
July 28, 2013 10:10 AM PDT
This phrase may be more than just a theme or a convincing suggestion in your life, but maybe an enduring question of which a reasonable answer remains a step or two away. Without knowledge of God's Word, there cannot be the wisdom and understanding of God's Will for us. Do that first step and understanding will come.If the Lord Is God, Follow Him
July 21, 2013 09:55 AM PDT
There are many times in many ways we see God in the Bible as we see Him in the creation we live in. Elijah has the privilege to demonstrate God for who He is and in the presence of the masses who quit that belief for all the strange and wicked reasons we also have today. Who do you follow?The Lord Is On Our Side
July 14, 2013 10:07 AM PDT
Have you chosen to be on the Lord's side? He is on the side of righteousness - you can be, too. Our Savior is our advocate for belonging to God's side. God can change things when you follow His will - a path that is led by His Son if you only choose to be on His side.Contentment In All Things
July 07, 2013 10:36 AM PDT
Despite the tragedies in life and facing the failures that come our way, contentment can always be found when our focus is on Christ. There is power to overcome when we stay in contact with God's grace and there are blessings found in God's providence. This is comfort that is provided and is sufficient for anything.I Love the Church
June 30, 2013 10:11 AM PDT
It is especially humbling to feel and belong to a part of the family of God right here in the home congregation. To be a part of something as a child of God, where Christ is its head, bought and paid for with His blood. We are all called to be a part of this, an eternal home of fellow saints, where a love can be shared within the love of our Lord and Savior.Wash and Be Clean
June 23, 2013 10:02 AM PDT
The law and the prophets demanded it as well as Christ's teachings to all of us. No matter who you are, where you go, or what you do, the instruction has been laid down, knowing and doing what is right is required. There is no replacement for obedience!The Father's Day
June 16, 2013 10:47 AM PDT
On this Father's Day, we must also remember whose children we are and to the Father we belong to. We have a Father, the King of kings, with whom a special and close relationship is ours for the taking. We know our own earthly fathers well, why don't we learn to know the Father of Heaven that well, also.
