What kind of Church do we want to be?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

IITimothy 2 begins instructing us to commit what we’ve learned to faithful men who would be able to teach others also. God’s word is to be learned, shared and witnessed with power. Through taking a look at God’s Word and the examples of people and churches therein, we paint a clear picture and vision that answers the very necessary question – What kind of Church do we want to be?

The Kingdom of God – Do in Power and Not in Word

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Part 1: Called to Do in Power and Not in Word
Jeff Kessler

Part 2: The Kingdom of God
Andrew McGarry

July 8, 2010

God calls us to His Kingdom, which He declares is not in word but in power. God’s kingdom is not head knowledge but in the heart and it is powerful. The Word of God comes with authority and power, the same authority and power that Christ had and it is he whom we rely on, not ourselves. This kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy to all who partake. We, therefore, would have all men partake in the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is spiritual and it is in each who are born again, those who confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God raised him from the dead. We are no longer strangers but citizens and ambassadors; sharing the Word of God so that all may partake in the Kingdom of God and the righteousness, peace, and joy that available.

Bringing our thoughts Captive to Christ

Friday, January 8th, 2010

January 7, 2009

The desires of the flesh and the spirit are utterly contrary; though we are flesh and blood we battle not against the flesh, our warfare is spiritual. Knowing this we must put our trust in God and allow him to lead our paths. Obeying God is a conscious act; we must follow the directions God lays out and allow ourselves to be led. When we bring our thoughts captive to Christ, to emulating the mind of Christ, God lays out a perfect, righteous path before us. When we bring our thoughts captive to Christ God blesses us. We leave a legacy of these blessings and this in turns blesses others which glorifies God. The temptations of flesh and blood are a yoke of bondage but our captivity to Christ is freedom through God’s strength and power.

Standing because of God

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

December 10, 2009

Man is born a spiritual cripple, uncapable of perceiving or working in spiritual matters. God, through the accomplishments of Jesus Christ, has made us able to stand spiritually, He has made up able to do the works that He sets out for us. Through His wonderful word He has shown us how to stand; by our steadfast believing in the promises and on the knowledge that God is there to back up those promises we can boldly proclaim God’s goodness and our redeemer Jesus Christ.
