Treasuring God's Word in Your Heart

In Bible Study on Thursday night (8.22.12) we talked through the importance and value of Scripture memorization or as our passage described it "storing up God's Word in our hearts." Now you might be wondering where you can start. What verses would be good to memorize? I have listed out some really great verses that could be really helpful as you seek to fight sin in your life, find joy in God, comfort others by sharing the hope we have in God, press on in your pursuit of Jesus and even share the Gospel with others....Read More

Praying Philippians 3

As I recently read and studied Philippians 3 I saw the attitude that Paul carried that helped him live a Gospel-centered life. I saw what drove him to abandon all and pursue Jesus with all of His life. He saw Jesus as infinitely valuable. He saw everything else as trash by comparison. When he saw Jesus this way, everything in life was different. Nothing else in life could satisfy. He was going to pursue Jesus with everything b/c Jesus is everything. I want this attitude. I want to value Jesus this way. This is my prayer as I read Philippians 3. Join me in asking God to help me love and value Jesus in this way....Read More

The Gospel is something we talk about, preach about and sing about. The Gospel is far more than a word to us; the Gospel is what makes us who we are and the Gospel is where we find our identity....Read More

Being the Church

Chances are you are a lot like me. Life has become busy and your priorities have changed. We all have things that we used to enjoy that we just don't have time for anymore. In fact, busyness is one of the main reasons why people say that they stop attending church. Many people who used to attend church regularly now only make it a few times a year, if they go all. It's not because they don't appreciate church. Many of these people are Christians who claim that church is important. They encourage others to go, but it just doesn't seem to fit their schedule anymore....Read More
