Good News

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,     because he has anointed me         to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives     and recovery of sight to the blind,         to let the oppressed go free,  to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. -Luke 4:18-19   Reflect: Prayerfully consider this week: In what areas of life is Jesus ahead of you beckoning you to step forward? Are there places, situations, issues in the world in which you are lagging behind Christ? What is needed......

No Exceptions!

And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. Its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. People will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. But nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are......

Knock, Knock...

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matt 7:7) Brothers and sisters, I am afraid that when the world hears those words and comes knocking on the doors of the faith – of Christianity, of the church -to find out just what Jesus has to offer, the church closes the doors that God has promised shall be opened. And in so doing, we are fighting against the will of God. We are disobeying. We are standing in......

All Saints' Day

This Sunday in worship, we will ask two questions: What does gratitude mean? Who are the saints in your life for whom you are grateful? Jason will spend a few moments looking at what Biblical meanings and understandings of gratitude.  We will reflect on the truth behind the word gratitude. Secondly, on Sunday we will remember All Saints’ Day.  All Saints’ Day is a celebration in the Church’s life that honors and remembers those people that been a part of our lives and influenced us in our life with Christ, but have now......
