Life in the Fast Lane

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Life in the Fast Lane By Jim Burns · September 25, 2017   The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. –Exodus 14:14 Far too many of us live in what some people call “crisis mode living.” This lifestyle is when you spend most every waking moment of almost every day trying to figure how to keep all your plates spinning and how to juggle all the balls in the air. In crisis mode you keep running, even on empty; faster and faster, project to project; deadline to deadline, school, jobs, friends, church, lessons, homework; and it just gets...

Busyness Doesn’t Satisfy

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
This devotional was written by Doug Fields “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed--or only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”  --Luke 10:41-42 In Luke 10:38-42, Jesus visits the home of two sisters, Mary and Martha. Mary enjoys connecting with Jesus, but Martha is preoccupied with the busyness of hospitality and meal preparations. When busy Martha complains about lazy Mary, Jesus responds by saying, “Mary has chosen what is better.” The lesson is painfully clear: connecting with Jesus is a better...

Bouncing Back

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Bouncing BackThis devotional was written by Kelly McFadden Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket. --Proverbs 25:11 (NLT) As a junior in high school, I was devastated when I was cut from the top volleyball team and sent to the second team.  I felt disappointed, embarrassed and dejected.  That evening, I spoke with a friend who passed on these words of wisdom, “It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce back that matters.”  I wrote the quote on my mirror and committed to doing my best for this new team, instead of sulking over my personal...

Childlike Faith – An Unusual Portrait of Maturity

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Childlike Faith – An Unusual Portrait of MaturityThis devotional was written by Doug Fields And he [Jesus] said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” --Matthew 18:3 It just happens along the way. When it comes to faith, adults learn how to doubt. We’re skeptical. We’re jaded. We try to intellectualize everything. We’re not sure God hears our prayers, or that even if He hears, He might have more important things to do than answer us. We complicate faith. But what about kids and faith? Children are amazing! Without...

Carpe Diem!

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Carpe Diem This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. --Colossians 4:5-6 A group of college students went on a mission trip to China. When they returned from their trip, they each shared lessons they learned. After spending only twelve days in a country where they communicated through charades and hugs, ten people came to know Christ, and teenagers who were stand-offish when the college students first arrived,...

The Enemies of Patience

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
The Enemies of Patience This devotional was written by Doug Fields But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. There is no law against these things. --Galatians 5:22-23 It should have been easier. I was at the supermarket. I was in the ten items or less express lane. I was in a hurry. I had two items. But then... (it seems like there is always a “but”) the guy in front of me had sixteen items. I counted! Sixteen items. This included counting the bunch of bananas as...

The Source of Lasting Change

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
The Source of Lasting Change This devotional was written by Doug Fields Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. --John 15:4-5 The story has been told of a Minnesota man who retired. Seeking change, he moved to Florida where he would escape the cold winters, relax and live...

Qualifications for Service

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Matthew 10   Jesus calls and sends out his disciples -- read all about it in Matthew 10.  Lots of good stuff in here from Jesus.  Listen well and accept his invitation to be sent into this world and serve the people right where you live, work and hang out.   As you ponder Jesus' sending words - chew on a few qualifications for service: 1.  Are you committed?  Do you believe in Jesus as your Savior and Lord of your life? If so, you are more than qualified to serve.  (Acts 2:37-39; John 1:12-13).  The good news is that Jesus...

How to Avoid Spiritual Obesity

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Warning ahead.  Great Devotion that hits the mark for every Christian and every Church.  It is so very easy to settle into consumer style Christianity which has its complacent consequences of SPIRITUAL OBESITY.  Read the following devotion by Jim Burns — it is very convicting.  After reading, spend some time chewing on the reflection questions (GOING DEEPER) and the suggested Bible Readings (FURTHER READING)  The Word always evokes a response to action.  Then, think of ways your LIFE GROUP, your FAMILY, your CHURCH can “give out” for sake of Christ.  Intentionally, make this summer a season to exercise your faith in...

What Revs the Rev?

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
What Revs the Rev?   3 things:   This is an easy one for me.  The order is less important — all go together and magnify the rev effect.      There is nothing more energizing for me to witness someone coming to Christ and actively growing in their walk with Christ.  Nothing comes close. Which makes our Christian witness so important!  If you are mature in Christ, please, please get equipped to parent someone in the Lord.  Nothing is more gratifying to walk side by side and parent someone in the faith.  You grow, they grow.  It is a fabulous...
