Halloween and Time Change: Both an Opportunity

Halloween and Time Change: Both An Opportunity Is there any other time during the year that fifty or a hundred or more people come to your door in a span of a few hours like they do on Halloween? I would imagine the answer would be no for all of us. Halloween is the one time out of the year when the world comes to your front door. So, think through what you could do to en...

Morality Kills

Morality has sent, is sending and will send people to Hell. That is why the words of Williams Tyndale are so fitting when he cries out to God, Deliver us from morality. Morality is not Christianity. Morality is the conformity to rules of right conduct or behavior. It is the vain effort of seeking to be good and righteous without Jesus. This is why the overchurched, unchurc...

Josh's Story

This past Sunday Josh Wetstein was baptized in the 11 amservice. It was a great joy to hear hiswords from the waters as hewas baptized. I thought you would be interested in ready more of hisstory, especially if you were unable to witness this. Here it is... I was born and raised in a Catholic home. I grew up believing thatby doing good, I would get into Heaven. Due to t...

William Carey

(This was taken from Randy Alcorn's writing on William Carey in both his book, Why Pro-Life?, and his online writing as well. Some changes have been made. Thank you to Randy for showing us that William Carey is a man we should imitate. Fresh back from India I am so thankful for William Carey and the seeds he planted in that land for the gospel. Oh how sweet the fruit is to...

Servant to All

For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake. 2 Corinthians 4.5 You and I are called to make disciples in a culture that is perishing due to the blinding of their minds by the enemy. We are called to reach those that are unbelieving with the light of the gospel even though now they might not see it. There wil...

Jesus' Present Kingly Reign

Do you ever have those days where you feel like God is not present? You may feel that He is absent, whether due to circumstances or maybe a certain attitude you have one day. These times are real. Even though we may feel like this, for the Christian it is a reality that He is present. There are also those times when we feel that God is not in charge of things here on Earth...

Sin

Dear Parents, Sunday's message was about our condition of being sinners, how we got this way, what the effects of it are and how we can be changed from being a sinner to a saint. As we have taken some time talking about the topic of sin, I want to challenge and encourage you to continue it. Our children need to understand this and it cannot be done in a 15 or 20 minute s...

God with Us

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us." Matthew 1.23 The conception, birth and coming of Jesus is the essence of Christianity. Both mysterious and miraculous is the conception of Christ by the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary. We call this the incarnation, which literally s...

Cross Conduct

Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; in no way alarmed by your opponents which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God. Phil...

Reflections on Philippians 1

This Sunday we will close out the first chapter of Philippians. As we wrap things up I would like to reflect on this gospel centered beginning by Paul. Paul has challenged us to truly put the gospel first. Remember this is no little gospel. It is not something we should domesticate, box in or push to the periphery. It should be at the center of all things. It is to be sup...

a story from impact sunday

I wanted to write you and tell you of the success I had going door to door last weekend during our neighborhood survey activity. I must admit, at first I was really apprehensive about going and felt out of my comfort zone. I prayed the night before to give me the courage and strength that would allow me to face my fears of rejection and be able to successfully represen...

That Which is of Most Importance

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain (1 Corinthians 15.1-2). The Apostle Paul was a fervent and faithful evangelist and he wanted so desperately for people to be saved. Here he draws...

Awake and Take the Mountain

I have enjoyed walking through some of Isaiah's writings the last few weeks. This past Sunday in Isaiah 52.1-7 we heard some intense words that were historical and futuristic (prophetic) in nature, as well as very important for this present day that we live in. In Isaiah 52 we find the subject matter concerning the deliverance of the Jews out of Babylon which will not happ...

The Surest and Safest Way of Thriving

We are called to be holy as Jesus is holy which does not mean that we are called to just merely avoid evil and be good moral people. Sure, we are to avoid sin, flee immorality and not to pursue evil, but we are not called to simply be about what we don't do, but what we do do. We have seen this over the last two weeks in Isaiah 58. We have a sacred calling as God's people....

The poor, the afflicted and the gospel

What is sacred? What is sacred to you? We have been asking this since the beginning of this year. God has called His people to be holy as He is holy - to be set apart, consecrated for God and His kingdom purposes (Leviticus 11.44; 1 Peter 1.15-16). So, followers of Christ see things different than the world we live in. We think different when it comes to the way we see our...
