Truth or Hearsay? Does Tozer Know?

Posted by Tkulp in Devotion to Christ, Holiness and an Intimate, Faithful Walk, 12 July 2017 - - - - - - · 90 views

When I read the first devotional in this series of devotionals by Tozer I felt to look ahead to the next day hoping that he would explain what I did not understand in that devotional.  Sure enough he continued to explain what God had given him. I was hooked, I could not stop reading until I read the last devotional in the series of eight devotionals....

Contentment is not Complacency

Posted by Steve Irvin in Steve Irvin's Blog, 10 July 2017 - - - - - - · 109 views

Contentment can be defined as a state of happiness and satisfaction. In this sense, God is perfectly content, the most joyful being in all the universe and beyond. Complacency, on the other hand, is a smug satisfaction accompanied by unawareness of dangers. The complacent individual is indifferent and unconcerned, “resolved to be irresolute” as Winston...

Repetition Helps Learning

Posted by Connie Seale in Orality, 25 May 2017 - - - - - - · 146 views

Repetition Helps Learning
by Jarvis Crosby  Context:
I use the methodology of repeating things to aid in learning.  There are moments that I think repetition in an adult learning context is an insult to the adult learner. I think that by repeating what I say the adult learner will think, “I’m not stupid. I can get it the first time. You do not...

Be the Gospel

Posted by DeVonna in Searcher's Place, 17 May 2017 - - - - - - · 157 views

I have a friend whose son served recently on yet another tour in Afghanistan in the American military. One day she received an email from her soldier-son, where he lamented the pitiful things he had witnessed: the suffering of innocents, the death, the chaos. “Where is God in all this?” he grieved. I counseled her, “Tell him God is there in your son’s ang...

“LOOK – SQUIRREL” The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it; Surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” – Isaiah 40:7,8

"FREEDOM IS NOT FREE..."

Posted by Pastor Ashish Bijorikar in Pastor Ashish Bijorikar's Blog, 23 November 2016 - - - - - - · 504 views

DEAR BELOVED PEOPLE OF GOD
IT IS TRUE THAT FREEDOM IS NOT FREE, IT IS BOUGHT THROUGH BLOOD. WE ARE FREE BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST SHED BLOOD FOR US. HE PAID THE PRICE FOR US. THEREFORE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE IT IS BOUGHT THROUGH BLOOD.

…forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 3:13,14)  
A few years ago I invited a messianic Jewish evangelist to come speak to the congregation about his understanding concerning Hebrew roots and th...

Religious Freedom, the LGBT+ Community, Our Faith, and Our Hearts

Posted by Joseph Beckley in Joseph Beckley's Blog, 10 August 2016 - - - - - - · 892 views

I read an article Tuesday morning that distressed me.
I thought about just letting it go. I have a few friends who still aren’t talking to me much following previous posts on contemporary issues. It is certainly easier and less heartbreaking to simply be quiet. However I cannot do that. These issues, and their impact on our faith, are too important....

This article was recently published at Asbury Theological Seminary’s Seedbed website ( here ).

As a person who regularly tries to encourage fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to try to spend more time concerning themselves with the Good News of Jesus that produces hope than the nothing-new-under-the-sun news of the headlines that prod...

Was this the Messiah? Or was he the Prophet promised by Moses?

Posted by RuthAnn Nicholls in Love Letters, 24 February 2016 - - - - - - · 464 views

John 7:40-52 
Recall, Jesus is in Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles. He teaches the multitudes and has just described the pouring out of the Spirit in John 7:37-39. What he said amazed the people and, evidently, the palace guards. When Jesus emphatically told them that streams of living water would flow from him, the people were divided...

Income Tax Withholding for Ministers

Posted by dantleung in Income Tax Withholding for Ministers, 11 January 2016 - - - - - - · 954 views

I am the new treasurer for one of the C&MA churches in Michigan. I would like to know whether our church, which is a typical C&MA church, is required to withhold income taxes for an ordained minister on our payroll. According to the following article on the internet, it seems that we are not supposed to withhold Social Security and Medicare tax...

Have you ever

Posted by Merilyn Lauffer in Merilyn Lauffer's Blog, 30 July 2015 - - - - - - · 905 views

Have you ever been prompted to pray for someone? I am sure you have. In our busy lives we often make a mental note and hopefully remember to pray for that person later. At our best, we stop everything and lift our hearts to the Lord and pray. 
Have you ever been prompted to go to that person and pray for them right then and there? It happens to m...

Only One Life - Elisabeth Elliot

Posted by Amy Roedding in IM Candidates, 17 June 2015 - * * * * * · 1663 views

Only One Life - Elisabeth Elliot This week I heard that Elisabeth Elliot had died. The first thought that came to my mind was not about death but about heaven! I thought of how a lady who had lived her life full out for Jesus was getting welcomed by so many including her Savior in heaven!

It is amazing to me to think of how one life had such an impact on so many. Even for me - I was not...

Let's go there: our DNA and the Jewish People

Posted by mkrpa in Ruby's Blog, 13 April 2015 - - - - - - · 868 views

In this General Council year, I encourage our leaders to examine C&MA DNA: if one goes back to the founding program, it lists one of A. B. Simpson's primary people group focus: the Jewish people. This also happens to be the primary group to reach, according to the Word, in several places: Romans 1:16 and Acts...
