pray for you

Prayer is essential for the church and for Christians. It is our walk in Christ that is the highest priority. It guides the church and allows the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of Christians.

Colossians

The church Paul describes in his greeting was what church should be. A place where outsiders hear about our good reputation for love, acceptance, forgiveness, and discipleship.

To Enable or to Help

The key factor in maintaining an addiction is enabling. This enabling allows the addict to experience no consequences for their destructive habits. And a person who is co-dependent also will not function well if they don’t have some way to shelter the addict.

Giving Thanks

In 2020 it’s hard to find things to be thankful for. I remember in the great recession of 2008 that people fell out of the middle class and never found their way back. I know there’s a large percentage of our population that make just enough to survive; and now a great portion of them have lost their jobs and could soon be homeless.

Transformed?

Thus we see that the “comforter” that we know as the Holy Spirit is meant to produce Christ’s witness in us. So can we observe that when people outside our church see that Jesus dwells among our members that people will be flocking to our church?

Study the Bible

Studying the Bible is not what most men do. But what they don’t realize is what a treasure they have at their fingertips. I’ve heard it said that “everything that’s needed in the Bible is in the Bible”. I’ve also heard it said that the best commentary of the Bible is the Bible.
