Hope Brings Encouragement

Posted by ajenkins on under Devotionals | Be the First to Comment

Advent and Christmas are seasons that remind us of God’s hope for us and in us. God’s Promise fulfilled in the Savior born and the King who will return is our source of hope. Your church staff’s prayer for you and your family is that you would experience the joy and power of Hope.

“We do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men who have no hope.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13

“I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten…”            Joel 2:25

“…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 1:6

Paul and Persecution

Posted by ajenkins on November 25, 2009 under Just A Thought | Be the First to Comment

The first time St. Paul heard the audible voice of the Lord, Jesus asked Paul why he was persecuting Him (Acts 9:4). The last time it is to ask Paul why he thinks the Lord is persecuting him (2 Cor. 10:12).

Is Jesus’ Grace sufficient? I wonder? Do you?

It’s just a thought.

“When the church is only worried about keeping the doors open you might as well order the plywood for the stained glass windows. ”

Too many of us are “Playing life not to fail.”

“If you see God as miserly you will be miserly.”

“What are you doing that unless God shows up you will fail”

All the above are quotes from Bishop Lawrence.

People Who Rub You The Wrong Way

What about people who just get on your nerves? The “irregular” people
who rub you the wrong way? Is this a sin issue? There is one in my
life that is around just enough that I can’t avoid her. I really doubt
she has any clue that she keeps saying things that bug me.

This is a good question and actually, I think it’s a big issue. Sadly, I think it’s not really one we can do much about on one level. Read more of this article »
