Motivation

Posted by Kevin Kelley on

A friend of ours is currently going through a very painful, ugly and mean divorce. The story isn’t anything unique or new. One day, her spouse woke up and decided that he didn’t want to be married any longer. Maybe it was the younger, slimmer, more athletic, sexier co-worker’s...

Earned by God and Given to Us

Posted by Nolan Jones III on

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. — Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV In these two verses, the apostle Paul tells us that salvation is a “gift of God” and it is “not a...

So Help Me, Me

Posted by Pat Cooper on

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.— Galatians 6:14 Forty years ago, John Denver, George Burns and Teri Garr teamed up in a delightful movie called Oh, God! The story captures a...

The Easy Yoke

Posted by Andrew Knight on

How do you kick back and relax? Do you sink into your favorite recliner in front of the TV? Do you lounge on the couch with a blanket and a good book? Do you walk around with a large piece of wood fastened to your neck? The last option doesn’t sound too relaxing, which is why it seems...

Different Kinds Of Working

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

“Would you like to teach children’s Sunday School?” the director of children’s ministry asked me. “No,” I responded. Her stunned look was priceless. I don’t think she got very many direct noes when she asked for volunteers. Certainly her requests had...

A New Purpose

Posted by Brook Bailey on

In Sunday’s sermon, we learned that, for those of us in Christ, three things are true: We have been made new. We have been completely forgiven. We have been given a new message and a new purpose. I totally get the first two on the list. I may need the occasional reminder, and I may...

Be Free!

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

I have been a Christian since a very young age, but for many years I believed that I was not defined by God’s love for me, but rather by the sin in my life. This false thinking led me to live a life of guilt and shame, causing my relationship with God to often feel strained because I never...

Newness in Christ

Posted by Scott Hiney on

I received salvation at the young age of 9, and it wasn’t until the final years of high school that I even began to grasp the complete restoration and resurrection that those in Christ undergo. So passages like 2 Corinthians 5:17–19 didn’t always track with me, because I...
