Overcoming Regret

Posted by Steve Irvin in Steve Irvin's Blog, 15 May 2018 - - - - - - · 48 views

2 Corinthians 7:10 "Godly sorrow produces repentance that leads to salvation without regret." 
Many people live with regrets for past failures. They can never seem to break loose completely from the chains of those past failures. I have sometimes struggled with feelings of regret. 
But regret alone redeems nothing. 
Repentance is the necess...

Child-like Faith

Posted by Tkulp in Devotion to Christ, Holiness and an Intimate, Faithful Walk, 26 April 2018 - - - - - - · 119 views

Child-like Faith  
"I tell you the truth, unless you turn around and become like little children , you will never enter the kingdom of heaven!" As I read this, "only those that turn and become as little children, will enter the kingdom of heaven" I saw something that I had never seen before. Instead of reading each verse as an independe...

WHY JESUS IS BETTER THAN SANTA CLAUS  Santa lives at the North Pole ...
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh ...
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.  Santa comes but once a year ...
JESUS is an ever-present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies ...
JESUS supplies all your needs.  ...

Questions Questions

Posted by notsofast in notsofast's Blog, 07 December 2017 - - - - - - · 521 views

This is kind of a weird first entry, but I guess it just is something that I don't completely understand. I have noticed that a lot of churches are starting to call lay people pastors without any kind of ordination. Don't get me wrong, I don't think you have to have a title to minister. My concern lies in the fact that it brings down credibility. Has any...

The Death Of The Self-Life

THE DEATH OF THE SELF-LIFE   
This we know - - that our old self is crucified with Him, in order that our sinful nature might be deprived of its power, so that we should no longer be the slaves of sin; for he who has paid the penalty of death stands absolved from his sin. - - Romans 6:6

"...then neither do I condemn you..."

“Then each went to his own home.
But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman w...

Live Godly, in This Present Age

Posted by DeVonna in Searcher's Place, 18 August 2017 - - - - - - · 588 views

“…The grace of God… teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
Clearly from this verse of instruction we see that we are not to simply sit idly while wondering...

Repetition Helps Learning

Posted by Connie Seale in Orality, 25 May 2017 - - - - - - · 816 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...

“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

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.

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

Posted by Joseph Beckley in Joseph Beckley's Blog, 10 August 2016 - - - - - - · 2010 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....

Income Tax Withholding for Ministers

Posted by dantleung in Income Tax Withholding for Ministers, 11 January 2016 - - - - - - · 1538 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 - - - - - - · 1526 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 - * * * * * · 2392 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...
