How Far Would You Go?
Jesus was the Messiah, the healer, the One whom they had heard about their whole lives, and their faith in those things brought them to the mountain, believing in Him to save them. How far will you go to be saved?
Entitled to Nothing
Friends, we have not and could not earn anything of the Lord except His wrath. Death is the only thing we are deserving of. And we will see it. But if we humble ourselves before the Lord, repent of our sins and ask for His forgiveness, He will be gracious enough to save us.
Changed from the Inside Out
We can dress it up, make it look beautiful, appealing, delightful, and inviting, but if anyone were to see the inside of each of us, would they be shocked? The only thing that can change our heart is Jesus.
Are You Offended?
The truth is, the Word of God is offensive. It cuts deep to the core. The very innermost parts of our souls. Exposing our sin, shining light on the darkness we want to stay hidden.
Let Us Be Great Leaders
Joshua was a great leader and example for his family, his community and all that he encountered. Could the same be said for you and me? Are we the leader God has instructed us to be? To our families, to our community, to all those we encounter… let us be great leaders and show them the truth of Jesus Christ!
If These Walls Could Talk
Even rocks, which are cold, hard, and stubborn, recognize the power and authority of God! If God’s people fail to recognize the Lord for who He is, even the rocks will cry out as a witness!
We are saved by the grace of God. Nothing we can do ourselves can save us. If we could, we would boast about it and then what would be the purpose of the cross? Why would Jesus have had to suffer and die if I could earn my way to heaven?
Confusing Patience With Approval
Sometimes the Lord does not intervene immediately when we sin. He is patiently waiting for us to confess our sin and turn away from it, choosing His way over our own. But just because He may seem or feel silent does not mean He approves of our sin.
The Other Side of the Story
Resolving conflict is not easy. However, if we hear out the other side of the story, many times, the truth is revealed and a fight can be avoided.
God Keeps His Promises
I am undeserving of God’s love and promises. Yet, even while I was a sinner, Christ chose to fulfill His promise and died for my sins so that I could have a future in Heaven. He did that for me, and He did that for you!
The Safe House
As a child of God, I have been forgiven of my sins. My debt has been paid. I am no longer guilty before the almighty God.
He Who Has Ears, Let Him Hear
We have the very Word of God before us and the Living Word within us.
Answer His Call Today
Has the Lord been calling? Today. Answer His call today. Tomorrow may be too late.
Friend, are you thirsty? Are you desperately seeking water that will sustain you? True, life-giving water? The Father is calling and says “come”.
Give Me This Mountain
We can have the confidence that God will give us this mountain. The Lord will fulfill His promises.
Age Does Not Define Us
As long as we have breath, we will praise the Lord! No matter our age or ability, we are here for a purpose! Let us continue to serve Him with our whole hearts!
The Battle Belongs to the Lord
Lord, You will crush the enemy like sand under your feet! Your victory has already been won!
Will You Follow Him?
It may seem like a crazy notion that the God of the universe, the One who created the solar system and everything in it, fights for you, but He does. In fact, the victory has already been won! And He has laid out an incredibly beautiful path for us to follow to that victory. We simply have to follow Him.
From Darkness to Light
Are you fighting a battle? Maybe you feel like the darkness is closing in and you need more light to continue. Jesus Christ said He is the light of the world. Reach out to Him to in faith that He would give you what you need to continue!
God Our Protector
Don’t you want the protection from the One who’s in control? The only One who can save you? Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ today!
The Show Must Go On
God’s will is done. No matter what we do to mess it up, it will still be accomplished. His counsel shall stand. He purposed it, He will do it.
Lord Over the Big and the Small
God is Lord over the big and small. If we trust in Him to do great things in our life, why do we think He isn’t concerned about even simple matters?
Refocus and Rediscover
We, too, need daily reminders of what the Lord has done for us, what He desires for us to do, and why we should serve Him.
The Master of the Game Plan
Do not think for one second that the Lord does not have a plan. Will you trust Him? Just as we looked to our coach for direction, we should be turning to Jesus.
Do Not Fear
Is it time for you to rid your life of sin? Confess it to the Lord and repent. Turn from that sin and turn to Him. And then, get back on the bike. Try again. Don’t give up.
The Root of the Problem
It’s not what’s at the surface that allows the new growth to thrive and succeed, but it’s at the root.
We Must Be Prepared
See, it didn’t matter who she had been in the past, the only thing that mattered was her decision to believe in who God was and trust to be saved from the coming judgment. She was prepared. Are you?
What are you facing today? Has the Lord brought you to a place that you just don’t quite understand His plan? Does it seem crazy? Does it look like it just doesn’t make sense? Will you still trust Him?
Know Who Goes Before You
Do you need that reminder today? When the bullies of this world are in your face, demanding to know what army will stand with you, you tell them, the LORD of Hosts!
When One Door Closes, Another Opens
You may feel the Lord closing a door to something that’s been good. Something that has been comfortable, something that has always been provided for you. This is when fear wants to creep in. But the Lord promises to provide.
The Greatest Story Ever Told
Today, our Hero’s story is the greatest ever told. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, came to this earth to redeem His people from sin.

Let God Lead
When you come to a part in the road and you don’t know which way to go, how will you make that decision? We can make our own decisions and choose the way that seems right to us, but only the road that God leads us on is the path of righteousness.
Scarlet Thread of Redemption
You are a part of this extravagant tapestry! Redemption is offered to all who will believe in Christ Jesus and accept His offer of salvation.
A Story Worth Sharing
The gospel is a story worth sharing.
Faith TALK: Jesus is the Peace
If anyone could have been filled with doubt, it was Paul! And yet, here He is telling us to trust God, with a thankful and grateful heart.
Does Your Past Still Define You?
You are not who you used to be. No matter what the world thinks or says, if you have put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, you are a new creation!
Rallying the Troops
Prepare yourself to move. Be ready for the battle ahead.
Are you ready for better days ahead? Do you want to leave the past behind for a better tomorrow? It starts today and it can only be possible with faith in Jesus Christ.

Faith TALK: Why Going to Church is Good for Us
Don’t just go to church and leave the same person. Go to church and grow in your faith, living out what you learned.
What Happens When You Die?
What will you see the moment your body dies? Will it be glorious? Or will it be torturous? Today, we must decide.
It’s that simple. Share the love of Christ with all those we come in contact with. Share the gospel, the truth that Jesus loves them, yes even when they were sinners, and He gave His life for them. Tell them of how He saved you. Tell them of the hope that you have.
Children Need Guidance
Why don’t we just let our children do as they want? Because they need guidance. They need someone that will teach them the truth and what consequences could come because of our actions. Let’s band together and commit to raising up our children in the word of God.
Carried on His Wings
There are times when we feel like that little eaglet, plummeting to the earth below, our death awaiting us. But the Lord, watching us intently, swoops in and provides for us, carrying us on His wings back to safety.
Called By Name
We will all be called by name. Those who are found in the lamb’s book of life will remain with the Lord in Heaven. And those who did not trust in the Lord will be cast into the lake of fire for eternal death.
