Four elements

Do you often find yourself in situations where you are asking God to “get you out” instead of asking God, “What do you want me to get out of this?” The disciples were constantly watching Jesus do miracles. Every day was new. There were healings going on, the dead were rising, the blind were seeing, the deaf hearing, the cripples walking, storms were calmed. One day after another they saw Jesus doing these things and more in their midst.

Just a Thought: Examine Your Heart

Just a Thought: Going from a demonized state to deliverance, we see a terrible story with a happy ending. Well sort of. Luke takes us on a journey with Jesus to a place where we meet a man under the control of demons so much so that he has become wild, hopelessly and helplessly a prisoner of Satan’s power.

When the man meets Jesus, Jesus cast the ...

Examine your heart

Jesus. Jesus. You say it. Say it again. Say it out loud and repeat His name several times. The old Gaither song is right, there is just something about that name. “Master, Savior, like the springtime after the rain…” It is the name we call upon for salvation. It is the name we call upon for cleansing of sin. It is the name we call upon in times of fear. And it is the name we call upon to strengthen our faith. Jesus knows our deepest secrets, He knows our greatest struggles, He knows the things that shake our foundation ...

Just a thought: All you do

What difference do you make to the Kingdom work God is doing around you? Some may feel they don’t contribute much, but let’s remember all the members of the body are essential for the body to function properly. Just because you don’t preach or teach doesn’t mean you’re unimportant. If you are serving God, using your spirit given gifts and serving for the honor and glory of God, you are essential! When you consider the ministry of Jesus, it is easy to focus on those out in front such as Jesus and the disciples. But ...
