Do You Doubt?

This past Sunday, Stephen Davey spoke about 1John 5:13-14. These concluding remarks within the book of 1John were written so that we’d know we have been saved. It was written for believers. Kind of like a hug from God 🙂 Pastor Davey stated that doubt: has more to do with feelings than with doctrine suffering […]

What does GodLike-ness look like?

Sunday, Stephen Davey preached on Titus 1:1-3. This is the third week in a row at my church that he went over this passage, but for good reason. In that passage, he noted a number of topics. The one I wanted to share with you is on Godliness. Stephen noted that, in passion, your life […]

Submission is a gift

A few weeks ago, Stephen Davey was speaking on a Sunday morning. His words are always insightful, but these words I wrote down. Perhaps because they spoke to me so loudly. Verbalize your submission to the will of God in prayer and in natural conversation. Mobilize your agreement to the will of God (do what […]

What do you fill your vessel with?

I love bird watching. Either sitting on the patio and watching the birds around the feeders or simply leaning against a window inside and gazing out at the beautiful creatures. I’m not sure why I am so attracted to birds. Perhaps it’s because of their simple lives. Or their natural instinct for survival. For whatever […]

What is your purpose?

Sunday I heard Steve Scheibner speak. What a powerful testimony he has, if you ever get a chance to hear him speak, grab it! An amazing 9/11 story that you MUST hear. But I digress. On Sunday, Steve talked about John 21:1-14. He reminded us that Peter counted the fish in this passage.If Peter counted […]

Encouragement within the book of John

Recently I read the book of John and noticed some phrases repeated. They encouraged me and I hope they’ll encourage you! John 6:40, 44b, 54b all share the same phrase : “I will raise him up at the last day”. From this scripture, believers are assured eternal life with God the Father. John 10:28b, 29b […]

Spiritual Thought – Do we mock Jesus?

In reading Mark’s gospel account recently, Mark 15:16 stuck out to me, the verse where the soldiers mock Jesus. It wasn’t bad enough that Jesus hung on a cross, they felt the need to cast lots for his clothing and mock and spit on Him. Let me put this into perspective. When I read the […]

King of the Jews

All four gospels state that Pilate had a notice prepared that said “King of the Jews” and had it fastened to Jesus’ cross. Many protested this notice, but Pilate stated “What I have written, I have written.” (John  19:22) I find Pilate an interesting character. If he didn’t believe, or wasn’t seeking the truth, why […]

Simply believe

What does it take to be a follower of Jesus Christ? It starts with believing (Romans 10:9). If the belief is true (in the heart) then a believer will produce fruit (John 15:4). As I was reading the gospel of Luke recently, it occurred to me that the thief on the cross could do nothing […]
