The Feed Feature - Baptism

Are you a new believer in Jesus Christ? If so, you may be wondering, "What do I do now?" One significant next step for every new believer is to be baptized. Consider what Jesus says in Matthew 28.

THE REFUGEE CRISIS: TIME FOR REFLECTION BEFORE REACTION

In keeping with James 1:19, I have been reluctant to enter the fray of voices and opinions regarding America’s recent actions in response to the global refugee crisis. I do so now, only because our entire country is polarized and fixated on the topic and I know many of you wonder how our faith should inform and influence our thinking on the matter. I hope you find the fo...

DAY 1 - LOVE

Matthew 22:36-40 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets." -------...

According to Psalm 95, we are either worshipers or wanderers. The first seven verses represent a call to come and worship. "Let us come" (1, 2, 6); "Let us shout" (1); Let us kneel" (6). Twice, reasons for worshipping are introduced with "for" (3, 7). We are invited to worship God as Creator and Caretaker....

Week 11

In Judges 7:1-8, God directed Gideon and his soldiers through an unusual screening process which reduced his fighting men from 32,000 to only 300 men. The reason: "In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own strength saved her" (7:2). Gideon obeyed God, and with 300 men God gave Gideon and his men the victory over the Midianites. In this passage I learn that...

Week 6

On the Day of Atonement, after making the initial atonement sacrifices for himself and the people, Aaron would lay his hands on the "scapegoat", confess the sins of Israel "and put them on the goat's head" (Leviticus 16:20-22). He would then have the goat released in the wilderness. One goat was sacrificed and one goat was the scapegoat. Not only did God provide forgivenes...
