October 11, 2019 – A Better Way

A Better Way “[Christ] disarmed the rulers and authorities and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in it. Therefore do not let anyone condemn you in matters of food and drink or of observing festivals, new moons, or Sabbaths.

Do not let anyone disqualify you, insisting on self-abasement and worship of angels, dwelling on visions, puffed up without cause by a…

September 27, 2019 – Confession

Confession “Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord.

Desire “These conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not come from the cravings that are at war within you? You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder.

Ripening “See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called the children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who…

August 2, 2019 – Ever Onward, Ever Upward

Ever Onward, Ever Upward “In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God wept over the face of the waters. Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good … God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. And there was evening and morning,…
