As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, 2 Peter 1:3-11. The Beatitudes in Matthew chapter 5 are very similar to Peters list of attributes that Christians should strive towards. Very often, we view these lists as only commands, and not as a process. However, the Beatitudes begin with “Blessed are the poor in spirit…”…

As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, spend some time praying through 1 John 1:5-10. God is separate from sin and calls us to fellowship with him. That’s difficult! Through Christ, we have full access, but sin remains in our lives. This week, spend time working through sin that you may find in your…

As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, spend some time praying through John 15:1-11. Fruit and fruitfulness are major themes of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It is significant that John the Baptist instructs the pharisees that he encounters in Matthew 3 to “bear fruit in keeping with repentance.” Often, as a Christian,…

As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, spend some time praying through John 13:31-35. Following Jesus comes at great cost. We live in a part of the world where religious freedom is still expected. For Joseph and Mary, being obedient to God cost them their homes and their normal lives. What does following Jesus…

As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, spend some time praying through Psalm 138. Jesus is the King over the universe. He is the one who has raised his name up as a banner for us to follow. Yet, he looks after those who are downcast and lowly. Wherever you find yourself this week,…

As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, spend some time praying through Isaiah 29:13-19. Our lives and hearts often turn away from the Lord, though our lips continue to say the right things. May each of us be humbled and challenged to submit our lives to the Holy Spirit and the missionary work that…

As you prepare for our time together this Sunday, spend some time praying through Psalm 96:10. “Say among the nations, ‘The LORD reigns! Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.’” May God our lives and our words be a declaration to your Kingship over all…

We don’t rest; we work. That’s the mantra of our American lives. Even so, the Bible has a message for us: Stop & Rest. In 1st Samuel, Chapter 6, the Philistines sent the Ark of the Lord back to the Israelites, because God punished them for taking it and for dishonoring his name. They sent…

This summer, we will be reading Jen Wilkin’s None Like Him as a church body. We are excited to read this together. This may be daunting for some of our men, especially since the introduction is titled “On Becoming A God Fearing Woman.” However, we firmly believe that this book will encourage each of us to…

Today, more than ever before in world history, God is moving within the Muslim world. Since Islam began in the 7th century, history tells us of 83 Muslim movements* to Christ. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the first known voluntary movement took place. Before the turn of the millennium, there had still only…

What is Ramadan? From May 27th until June 25th, Muslims worldwide will be participating in their most sacred month of the year: Ramadan. Ramadan is a time where devout Muslims fast. They daily give up food, liquid, tobacco, and sexual intimacy from sunrise to sunset. The fast is broken after each sunset with iftar. Iftar is a celebratory feast in…

How many church services have you been in that you get distracted? How easily, in our fast-paced culture, do we need something else? Our culture lacks a sense of immediate, enduring focus. Yesterday, as I sat down to hear the sermon, I found myself wanting to grab my phone and check Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, the…

In Matthew 16:15, Jesus asks His disciples, “Who do you say I am?” How would you answer that question? What would you say? How you answer it has eternal significance. However, knowing who Jesus is, is not enough. The Devil has perfect Christology, Jesus must not only be known for who He is, He must…

Today is the beginning of the largest religious festival in the world: Ramadan. Ramadan is a month long fast in the religion of Islam. Every adult man and woman is expected to practice daily fasting (sawm) which ends every evening with a special meal (iftar). Muslims all over the world celebrate this festival in order…

Our Heavenly Father not only hears the cries of his children, but delights in rescuing them even if he has to move heaven and earth to do so. In fact, our God is even more effective than the great Liam Neeson in his rescuing! So why would we not cry out to God incessantly? In…

As we walk through the book Habits of Grace together as a body over the next few weeks, I am excited to focus our next few posts on the topic of prayer, or as David Mathis describes it in the book “having God’s ear”. Mathis is spot on in saying the purpose of “prayer is…

On Sunday Matthew referenced this John Piper sermon. We thought it might be encouraging to our church body to share it. Hope you enjoy! This sermon was originally posted here on the Desiring God website.

Holy Week is the most important time in the life of the church. This week we celebrate and mourn the death of the Savior of the World. Only through the Christ can anyone stand holy and blameless before a good God. As you approach Easter Sunday, walk with Jesus to the cross. Seek him so…

The Lenten season in general, and its practice, may be uncharted territory for many in evangelical, Christian circles This is especially true for Baptists. However, there is a lot more to Lent than an ashen cross upon one’s forehead—enough to cause me to invite you into a month-long journey. A journey of embracing our sinfulness…

“The theology of Genesis is the prelude to God’s election of Israel and her monarchy, whose purpose was to channel the divine blessing for all nations. Although Israel enjoyed prosperity during the golden years of David and Solomon, the blessings were secured only with the coming of Christ and the founding of the church. Since…

1 Chronicles 23:16-23 The history of the nation of Israel shows that they rarely ever followed the commands of their God especially concerning how they were to worship God. They were not content to pray to the one true God Yahweh but instead built places of worship to other god’s and prayed to them (Isaiah…

As a triathlete, many people ask me how I am able to achieve my exercise goals. Scientific research, peak human performance, modalities of training, nutritional plans, technological breakthroughs, or even fashionable trends are all areas where many athletes seek to improve. There is no doubt that consistency is the greatest contributor to success. “A prayerful…

Why should I pray? Prayer is not some small or marginal thing. Prayer is at the heart of why God created the universe. According to Isaiah 43:7, God created us for his glory. One of the primary ways God displays his glory in us is by being depended on through prayer. When we, as God’s…

Focus in Worship Tim Timmons makes a great point in this short video. Why am I leading worship? Does God need more excellent music? No. God desires that we focus on Him and what he has accomplished for us! Let’s let this color our worship gatherings!
