Life Preserver

Life Preserver

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 It is advised that the rescue approach of using a buoyant object be used when trying to save someone from drowning.  Reports have shown that many people drown trying to save another person from drowning.  Survival mode kicks in and the drowning person will grab a hold of anything to stay alive including someone […]

Why Pray?

Why Pray?

John 15:5-8 Luke 18:1-8 Why do we need to pray?  One of the simplest reasons for us to spend time in prayer is because the Lord instructed us to pray. Matthew 26:41 tells us, “Keep alert and pray. Otherwise temptation will overpower you. For though the spirit is willing enough, the body is weak!”  Second, prayer develops our […]

A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

“School bells ringing, children singing back to (name school) again!” This was a song my parents sang to us at the start of every new school year.  I still remember pulling the covers up over my head, trying to go back to sleep.  I was nervous and wasn’t quite ready to take on a “new beginning”/school year. […]

Are You Influenced?

Are You Influenced?

Matthew 4:18-22 If we would look up the word disciple on the merriam-webster.com website it states; “follower of Jesus Christ in his lifetime”. It also means “one who accepts and assists in spreading the doctrines of another”. What happens when we accept, assist and follow someone? We learn his/her ways, become more like them as […]

Are You Thirsty?

Are You Thirsty?

Psalms 42 When you say, “I am thirsty” are you really? Can you ever remember when you were ‘dying of thirst’?  When your mouth was so dry that you could spit dust balls? So parched that you could drink out of a mud puddle – well maybe not that bad, but you get the point. […]

Redeemed

Redeemed

Romans 3:21-28 What does it mean to be redeemed? According to merriam-webster.com dictionary the word “redeemed” means: “Something that compensates for poor past performance or behavior”. Another example of redeemed is this: if you were in trouble financially and you had a valuable bracelet that you decided to take to a pawn shop. You give them your bracelet in […]

Christmas in August

Christmas in August

Romans 5:1-5 Reread v. 2, “Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.” Remember those days when we were kids; the excitement, anticipation, and expectation of what is waiting for you under the tree […]

Whose View?

Whose View?

Proverbs 23 I was standing outside watching our cat Lucy chase a squirrel up into the apple tree and the squirrel wondered out onto these little, thin, frail branches. The squirrel looked across at some even thinner branches on the big oak tree we have in the yard. I said to myself “From my point […]

The Wrong Crowd

The Wrong Crowd

Romans 5:12-21 We can all remember someone at some time in our lives saying, “you are hanging with the wrong crowd”. Usually our children, parents or friends may see us hanging out with a certain person or persons that they know will influence us in negative way and that we could end up doing something wrong. […]

The Best Plan

The Best Plan

Have you ever been frustrated because it seemed like God just wasn’t answering your prayers?  That’s how I felt recently when I was faced with some big decisions I needed to make about college and my future in general.  Throughout the process, I asked God for guidance.  I knew God would guide me, but I […]
