Just a thought: Lord, you take over

Isn't it true that we spend most of our time operating in our own strength and power? When was the last time you said, "Lord, You take over…" and wasn't it after you had given it your best and your best wasn't good enough to get it done. We often fall into the trap of thinking "This is what I do, and I will do it…Spiritual and impossible things are what God does and when I need help with those things I'll turn to Him." But just as it was for Peter, it is for ...

Rasmussen: Do not be afraid — this is expected

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim. Have you heard that name? On May 11th of this year she was convicted of apostasy and adultery. What had she done? Well, she was a Christian, having been raised by her Christian mom. But since her dad was a Muslim, even though he had been absent, since he was a Muslim – her being a Christian was apostasy. And then, she married a Christian and got pregnant. And since she was supposed to be a Muslim, and he wasn't a Muslim man, that's adultery. The Sudanese government gave her three days to reject the Christian ...

5 reasons we need camp meetings now more than ever

Each summer I do something odd by most American standards: I spend one week with my extended family, we sleep in a crowded cabin with no air conditioner and we go to worship services three times per day - alongside of hundreds of others - in an open air structure with a sawdust floor. The songs we sing were written long before I was born and the sermons last much longer than 15 to 18 minutes.

Ghanaian missionary staying in U.S. to start revival

Saul was an ordinary guy who went out to look for lost donkeys. He didn't have any expectations of being a king, nor did he set out to be king of Israel. All he wanted was to find his father's lost donkeys and go back home, but not only were the donkeys found, Saul ended up being king of Israel (1 Samuel 9:1-27; 10:1-24).

Just a thought: What will you do?

One of the greatest questions ever asked in response to hearing the Word of God… "What should we do then?" (Luke 3:10) To the believer who is already walking with God: Remember salvation is not turning over a new leaf, it is about living a new life. This affects all areas of your life - spouse, children, parents, work, giving and serving. Don't just talk about the benefits of salvation; live them. To those who are still in need of coming to Jesus - Repent! Turn from your sin and self efforts (Eph. 2:8,9) and trust in Jesus ...

Living ‘Under Grace’

"Sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14). Nearly 2000 years ago, Paul wrote that to Christians, to people he included with himself when he said, "We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life" (Romans 6:4-5).

Grace Notes: The story of our stained glass

Our church, Abiding Grace, is in a building project. Last night, we had one of the coolest opportunities of the whole planning process. We got to meet with the artist who is creating our stained glass windows. That was fun - picturing how it will all look - anticipating how these windows will be communicating to all who see them something special - something about God and his grace for them.

Now, before you read on, ask yourself what image you would put in the front and center window. What would you consider to be the most important thing to communicate with those ...

Lifepointe Church to hold classic car show and barbecue

Lifepointe Church of the Nazarene is having its Barbecue and Classic Car Driven Youth Fundraiser on May 22 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Breaking the mold

The 9:45 a.m. service at First Baptist Church offers a break from its 180-year history of traditional services.
It also allows for more people to be able to attend the church.
"We were just growing and had to do something," said Pastor Jason Dees, explaining that the 11 a.m. service filled up fast.
With a lot of interest backing it, the service began in August 2009 in the Fellowship Hall, falling between the 8:25 a.m. and 11 a.m. services.
According to Dees, about 150 people attend.
The more relaxed service provides a different sound ...
