God's Timing

Sun, 23 October 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Do you ever feel as though something should have happened sooner, or waited until you were ready, or not happened at all? In doing so, do we question God's sovereignty or his timing? And how can we know the difference and adjust our relationship with what is? Today we consider the Scriptures that talk about the season for all things, God's role in what happens, and the absolute perfection of God's Timing.

The Invitation

Sun, 16 October 2016 14:00:00 EDT

We've all received many invitations, from parties to marriage proposals to an offer to eat or have coffee or tea with someone. Some were big, some were little, but they all pale in comparison to the invitation God is holding out to you today.

O Lord You're Beautiful

Sun, 9 October 2016 14:00:00 EDT

If you look at the depravity of humanity, you might think the world is an ugly place. If you look at the creation, you might discover the world is beautiful, as a reflection of the One who created it. If you look at the Creator, you will find that He is more splendorously beautiful still. Today we ponder these perspectives, as we declare with our hearts, O Lord You're Beautiful.

It's the Devil's Fault

Sun, 2 October 2016 14:00:00 EDT

How many seemingly negative things that happen to you are the devil's doings? When your household appliances and automobile all break down in the same week, did demons do it? When you or someone you know or love have a heart attack or stroke, is the devil to blame? Today we take a closer look at these questions, as we consider whether, indeed, It's the Devil's Fault.

Perfected in Love

Sun, 18 September 2016 14:00:00 EDT

The Scriptures mention being "perfected in love." Is this a process? Are we just somewhere between being unloving and being perfected in love? And is it possible to, in this life, find that loving perfection? Today we take a look at the words sent to us by God as we ponder the call to be Perfected in Love.

Media Files:

You Are Not Alone

Sun, 11 September 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Have you ever felt as though you were left to face struggles, temptations, situations, and "life" all alone? Do you perhaps feel that way today? And has God really left you alone? Today we turn to the words of God recorded in Scripture, in which He promises us, "You Are Not Alone."

Media Files:

Love and Relationship

Sun, 4 September 2016 14:00:00 EDT

We're all familiar with the concept of "falling in love," and the feelings and attachments that come with it. But what is True Love? Can those feelings come with it? And if they do come without God's description of True Love, will they result in a healthy relationship, or will they only destroy us? Today we take a look at what God says about Love, ponder what our response should be, and choose whether to submit to God our Love and Relationships.

Spiritual Amnesia

Sun, 28 August 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Do you ever find yourself fearing people or events? Could it be that you have forgotten what God has done, and that He never changes nor fails us?

Today we consider an example in Biblical history, as we consider the results of and cure for Spiritual Amnesia.

Be Still and Know

Sun, 21 August 2016 14:00:00 EDT

"Be still and know that I Am God." We're familiar with this verse, but what does it really mean? How can we be still? Are we ever truly still? And what difference does it really make to dwell in that place of stillness and quiet? Today we take a first-hand look at this dwelling place of stillness, as we learn what it really means to Be Still and Know.

How Does God Speak?

Sun, 14 August 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Have you ever wanted or needed to hear God speak to you? Perhaps about a difficult decision, or regarding a physical or emotional need? Does He speak only to a select few? How does God speak, and how can we hear His voice? Today we turn to Biblical examples as we ponder the question, How Does God Speak?

Sticks and Stones

Sun, 7 August 2016 14:00:00 EDT

What thoughts go through your mind throughout the day? Thoughts that are pure, lovely, noble, praiseworthy, and seeing what is good in other people and situations? Or are they at odds with the directions given us in Scripture? Is it all that important, and what can we do about it? Today we take a look at a passage in Philippians and we ponder the meaning, purpose, results, and nature of Whatever.

Sun, 10 July 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Do you ever feel as though you are carrying some sort of burden around with you? Something that weighs down your heart and mind with worry, sorrows, and despair?

Independence Day

Sun, 3 July 2016 14:00:00 EDT

In the USA, on July 4th, we celebrate Independence Day. And while we remember the signing of the Declaration of Independence from unfair government in the early days of this nation, there is another Declaration of Independence that Jesus signed with His blood 2,000 years ago. How can we live in this total freedom, liberated from the tyranny of sin? Today we ponder the true meaning of independence and freedom as we celebrate today, every day, which is always and eternally our Independence Day.

God's Plan B

Sun, 26 June 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Does God have a perfect plan for you and for the world? Is He ever taken by surprise? Is He responsible for the evil that happens on the earth? And was Jesus a Plan B when His original plan did not work? Today we take a look at these questions, consider some of the Scriptures that can both answer these and create more questions, and ponder what God's perfect plan is and whether there is a God's Plan B.

Father's Day 2016

Sun, 19 June 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Your earthly father might be or have been someone who was a wonderful example of God's nature, or he could have been the opposite of who God is. Why? And is our concept of God enhanced or polluted by our experiences or lack of experiences with our earthly fathers?

Never Alone

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:00:00 EDT

When we get alone with God in worship and prayer, we may be able to feel His Presence, and we may believe that it is stronger then than when we are at work or going about our daily routines. But is this true? And is it possible to dwell in that place of perfect Peace in His Presence all the time? Today we turn to the Scriptures and ponder the true meaning of the truth that we are Never Alone.

God's Never too Busy

Sun, 15 May 2016 14:00:00 EDT

When's the next time you set everything else aside and just had tea, coffee, supper, or a walk or sit or talk with God? Is He too busy for such simple things? Or is it we who are too busy for Him?

From the Inside Out

Sun, 13 March 2016 14:00:00 EST

Last week, we talked about the atmosphere you bring into the world around you, and considered the example of Jesus, who brought healing and love and life to all those around Him. How do we follow His example? Do we use will power? Do we cover up our inner negativity with good words and actions? And would those approaches even work? Today we consider these questions, ponder the true source of what, despite our best efforts, we radiate into our atmosphere, and how we can show God to others From the Inside Out.

Go and Sin No More

Sun, 14 February 2016 14:00:00 EST

We've all heard the words "Go and sin no more," and some of us have aimed them at those who are living in sin, perhaps including ourselves. But are those words of condemnation?

God in Gloves

Sun, 10 January 2016 14:00:00 EST

Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?

Sun, 13 December 2015 14:00:00 EST

Most of us know Jesus wasn't actually born on December 25th. Is that good cause to not celebrate Christmas?

The Greatest of These

Sun, 29 November 2015 14:00:00 EST

Most of us are familiar with the last words of The Love Chapter, "The greatest of these is Love." That's a popular phrase, and it's generally accepted as true. But do we walk in Love?

Do Something

Sun, 8 November 2015 14:00:00 EST

If we passed Jesus on the street, and He was cold, clothed in rags, and had nothing to eat, would we go out of our way to help Him? Well, He is the neighbor in need of help, the beggar outside the shopping center, and the stranger asking for someone to care enough to give of their time, resources, and prayers. Today we consider God's call for each one of us to do our part, so that the next time we see Jesus in the form of someone in need, we step out of our comfort zone and choose to Do Something.
