Not the Peace of the World

Sun, 29 January 2017 14:00:00 EST

What is peace? Is it caused or destroyed by external circumstances and conditions? Is it something you can experience only when conditions are just right? Or is it something that can endure through no matter what may come? And how can we find it? Today we consider the words of Jesus as we ponder the Peace that is Not the Peace of the World.

Our Beliefs: 5. Man

Sun, 22 January 2017 14:00:00 EST

Is mankind good? Evil? Like God? Like the devil? And what caused our current condition? Was it eat a fruit that made us aware of morality, and awareness we did not originally have? Or was it something else? Does it really matter, and if so, how can we know? Today we take a closer look at this topic, as we examine the Scriptures and ponder the nature, current condition, and divine hope for Man.

Come and Be Loved

Sun, 8 January 2017 14:00:00 EST

We've all heard that God loves us so many times that it's almost become a cliché. But what does it mean to be loved by God? Does He just love us as a nameless, faceless crowd? And how can we experience the Love of God anew? Today we discuss the amazing Love of God, as He invites us to Come and Be Loved.

Sun, 1 January 2017 14:00:00 EST

You may be familiar with the Hymn, Sweet Hour of Prayer. How important is prayer? Is there a right and wrong way to pray?

Christmas 2016

Sun, 18 December 2016 14:00:00 EST

On December 25th, many of us will celebrate the coming of the Messiah as a virgin-born infant born 2,000 years ago. And while many disagree on when the exact date of His birth actually was, most of us can agree that His coming changed the world, and for those of us who have put our full trust in Him, His birth, life, death, and resurrection has transformed our lives forever. Today we commemorate the coming of Messiah, on this Christmas 2006.

Our Beliefs: 4. Holy Spirit

Sun, 11 December 2016 14:00:00 EST

What is the Holy Spirit? What does He do? Is being filled with Him something that should have our attention? If we have Him, are our beliefs and revelations guaranteed to be inspired? And how can we know? Today we take a look at what Jesus and the early Church leaders said about the Comforter, as we ponder the nature and ministry of the Holy Spirit.

Our Beliefs: 3. Jesus Christ

Sun, 4 December 2016 14:00:00 EST

Who is Jesus? Is He God? Or was He just a prophet, teacher, or even the brother of satan? What do we have to believe about Him to receive Salvation? And are those who believe differing doctrines about Him unable to be saved? Today we take a look at the various teachings, beliefs, and opinions about the Messiah as we ponder the nature and Saving Grace of Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs: 2. One God

Sun, 27 November 2016 14:00:00 EST

Most Christians believe there is only one true God. But within that believe are varying descriptions which divide believers and make virtual enemies or candidates for Salvation out of those who disagree. What is the truth? And how important is it for us to get this one right? Today we take a closer look at this controversial topic, as we ponder the deeper meaning of the reality of One God.

In His Image

Sun, 13 November 2016 14:00:00 EST

Sun, 6 November 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Do you ever find yourself caught in the cycle of gain and loss, positive and negative, and of striving to gain something out of life in return for your efforts?

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.

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?

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.

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?

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?

Sticks and Stones

Sun, 7 August 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Whatever

Sun, 17 July 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?

Today we take a look at a passage in Philippians and we ponder the meaning, purpose, results, and nature of Whatever.

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?

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? Today we converse about this topic, consider the blocks in us and our fathers that keep God's nature from shining through, and ponder the unfathomable love of our Father God as we celebrate Father's Day 2016.

Sun, 12 June 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Do you ever feel as though you are shameful and guilty because of what you did in the past, whether years ago or earlier today? Or do you feel shame about something that has been done to you?

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?

Defying God

Sun, 10 April 2016 14:00:00 EDT

Most of us don't think we are living in defiance of and rebellion against God. But is that belief true? Or could we be deceiving ourselves? Today we take a look at some passages in the New Testament, consider what we practice, and answer the call to turn away from Defying God.

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.
