Our Purpose, God's Plan

Posted by Valerie Williams on

God entrusted Nehemiah with a unique role. Nehemiah was a cupbearer. It would be really easy to see his job as insignificant. After all, if he were to drink something tainted, or even poisonous, he could be replaced. But what if we were to look beyond what seems obvious to man? Nehemiah saw...

Begin with Praise

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Nehemiah prayed before he went to the king on behalf of his people. He began this prayer with praise: “Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments…” (Nehemiah 1:5). He went on to confess...

Lights, Camera, Drama!

Posted by Andrew Knight on

My son loves action movies. Marvel superhero movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings — these are among his favorites. Whether it’s in the movies or life itself, we can all appreciate strong, decisive action that leads to a positive outcome in the face of crisis and danger. In Nehemiah...

Living In Community

Posted by Luke Bedford on

When I first started attending c|Life four and a half years ago, I heard almost every Sunday about the importance of living in community with others, but I never allowed myself to truly experience what that meant until September of 2015. At that time, my wife and I began leading a discussion...

Hiding and Sweating

Posted by Kevin Kelley on

Subsequent to Adam and Eve’s rebellious assertion of independence in Eden’s garden, their immediate response was a shameful awareness of their nakedness. Then came the pathetic attempt at covering themselves by sewing fig leaves together. (I don’t imagine Coco Channel or Oscar...

The Only Resolution You Need

Posted by Nolan Jones III on

It’s the first week of the new year — a time when everyone takes a moment to reflect on last year and make a list, at least mentally, of things they would like to do differently this year. Most of us call these lists our new year’s resolutions. Up until today, I had decided...

New Year's Resolution

Posted by Lisalette Hamon on

As 2017 approached, social media showed that many people were preparing to improve their lives, or at least some aspects of them, once Jan. 1 hit. From improving eating habits to growing in a relationship with God, people seem really excited about whatever they’ve chosen to do to improve...

2016 Wasn't So Bad

Posted by Scott Hiney on

If you took a breath this year, you might’ve noticed a seemingly inordinate amount of people took time to complain about how bad 2016 seemed to be. It’s easy to fall into the trap of agreeing with this statement. Maybe your guy wasn’t elected as president. Maybe your guy was...

Three Advents

Posted by Riley Roberson on

After celebrating Christmas, we’re on the other side of Advent, and you really won’t hear the word again until some really churchy person says something about the church calendar next year. But, to me, there are really three advents that are important for us all throughout the year...

Model and Promise

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

One of my favorite professors in seminary repeatedly said, “What God has done in the past is a model and a promise of what he will do in the future, although he’s far too creative to do it the same way twice.” I just love that statement, because it emphasizes the...
