Welcome again to this week's word for the week. What does it really mean to believe God? That may sound like an easy question but give that some real thought. What do people mean when they say that? We all know the answer may vary from person to person but that question is in general. Can one believe God for some things and not all? Can one believe God only to a certain extent? Let's go further here.
We all know that faith is necessary to believe God. Trust is also necessary. You will also need patience and wisdom just to name a few other things. All of these things work together but does that really solve our question for this week? I won't be long but I want you to give this some real thought. When you say that you're ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. This week we have to revisit something but in a different way. The bible tells us that we are bought with a price. That price is the blood of Christ. It goes on to say how we don't belong to ourselves because we've been bought with a price. Keep that in mind as we go along with this week's word. This is more about something for you to think about than it is something I need to say so here go.
Imagine that you're driving somewhere you've never been before. The GPS tells you to turn right and yet you turn left. The GPS will try to reroute you to put you back on track but let's suppose you won't listen to the directions. I don't care how many wrong turns you ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. The human mind is powerful. It has the capacity to learn languages, make decisions, process math, process words that we read, imagine new inventions, control our emotions, and process what our eyes see. It also has the capability to determine how we are. Yes, the human mind is powerful.
Jesus said it's not what goes in a man that is dangerous to him. It's what comes out of that man. Clearly, Jesus was talking about the issues of the heart in that particular passage. However, we also discover in our everyday life that our minds control our thinking. As we think, so are we. That's the part that becomes dangerous and that's what we will briefly focus on this week. Let's ...

Welcome to our online Bible study. My goal here tonight is to give you the scriptures along with some points for you to consider. As always, please take some time to pray first and ask God to clear your hearts and minds from whatever you may have dealt with today so that you can focus on what we will talking about here. Also, get your Bible close by because you will need it.
While I was truly looking forward to bible study tonight in the sanctuary I'm also grateful that we have modern day technology at our disposal to be able to continue it this way. Before we go to the actual scriptures tonight I would like each of you to give this some thought. On this journey we go through many things and changes. We have to be .........

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. This week is a holiday week so I don't want to take up too much of your time. However, the Lord just literally spoke a word to me this week to share so here we go. Prayer is powerful. It really does change things. It absolutely works. It also requires time and patience. So many times we expect everything to change instantly. While there are times that God may do just that there are other times when we must weather the storm in order to see the glory of God.
Prayer doesn't just change your circumstance or situation. It changes you. There is something to be said about the person who understands that once they begin to pray they are in it for the long haul. Prayer can change your ...

Welcome again to this week's word for the week. The ability to get up from something is just that. It's an ability that God has given you. You have to see it as not a chance to get up from something but a God given ability to do so. This does not negate what you may need to get up from. This does not mean that there are not things you may need to really turn around in order to get up. It also doesn't say that you can't get back up. Let's go a little further this week.
All of us have been down in something. Before anyone reading this simply thinks along the lines of just sin please know that I'm going far beyond that as well. While we all fall short that's not all there is to talk about when we say get back up. ...
