A brother once remarked that if one were to actually pray the “Lord’s Prayer” it might only take a moment. When Jesus gave the “Lord’s Prayer,” as we call it, He was answering people who didn’t know how to pray at all.   The “Lord’s Prayer,” then, might be compared to baby food and

Peace

Be at peace. "In mercy and truth atonement is provided for iniquity; and by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil. When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him." - Proverbs 16:6 ... at peace. Sounds like a location.

One Sheep

"What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over

Present or Presence? "The father knew that one o’clock was the exact time that Jesus had said, “Your son will live.” So the man and all the people who lived in his house believed in Jesus. That was the second miracle Jesus did after coming from Judea to Galilee." - John 4:53-54 Though He

Beyond the Four Walls

From my vantage point I can see Pastor prepping, giving, and recording a video announcement during offering. First thing in my heart and mind is I wonder how many others we're reaching through this media. We think we only pay the bills for the lights, ac, water, etc. that people use while they're here

Disappointment

2017-07-06T19:39:08+00:00

Ever been disappointed? It's proof you have the capacity to dream. From devotions this morning: "He Cares About You" "When he tasted it, the water had become wine." - John 2:9 “Anyone who is having troubles should pray” - James 5:13 "Have you taken your disappointments to God? You’ve shared them with your neighbor,

"The LORD does not listen to the wicked,but he hears the prayers of those who do right. Good news makes you feel better. Your happiness will show in your eyes. If you listen to correction to improve your life, you will live among the wise. Those who refuse correction hate themselves, but those who accept correction gain understanding.

Someone said yesterday that having a child when you're older keeps you younger. I think my favorite part is being facinated with what facinates him. True when we live for others as well, though. "We who are strong in faith should help the weak with their weaknesses, and not please only ourselves. Let each

Les and I were originally talking about never being afraid that God would not provide a place, a home, a sense of stability as we trust in Him. He has and will always come through. Then it hit me. I have always had a sense of 'homelessness.' There has always been this sense of

Ministry is Messy

2017-07-06T20:28:21+00:00

Second day going home smelling of alcohol and tobacco. Nate and I went to lunch at Jack in the Box and encountered a young man recently released from prison who was very inebriated and seemed to exhale the f-bomb. That was very eventful, resulting in my car needing to be very thoroughly cleaned last
