People…Or Precedence?
by Ministry Support on October 29th, 2021
“…But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, ‘Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.’ Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still st...  Read More

Beat Off The Bugs

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” - John 1:5  As believers, you and I should be under the influence of the Spirit so that we can be a light in dark spaces.   I remember driving up to my home one night and noticing one of the lights in the front of my home was not working. The next evening, remembering to replace it, I went out to change the light. To my asto...  Read More

What Can I Do?
by Ministry Support on October 3rd, 2021
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” - John 15:5  What can I do? What can I accomplish if I set my mind to it? These are probably questions you have asked at some point or another. It could have been as a child when no dream seemed too big—when the world was your playground, and you could do anything yo...  Read More

Claiming Your Freedom
by Jared West on September 16th, 2021
“Jesus replied, ‘Very true I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the son sets you free, you will be free indeed.’” – John 8:36 The abundant life for which Jesus came and died was predicated upon a desire to set us free. John the evangelist conveyed the Lord’s sentiments when he said, “So if the Son ...  Read More

Don’t Go Back
by Jared West on September 15th, 2021
“Then Jesus said to him, ‘Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.’” – John 5:8 Continuing our discussion from yesterday regarding the paralyzed man at a healing pool who was healed by Jesus, this was not the last time that Jesus encountered this man. In John 5:14, it reads, “Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you....  Read More

Get Up And Walk
by No Limits on September 14th, 2021
“Then Jesus said to him, ‘Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.’” – John 5:8 In John 5, a paralyzed man sat at a healing pool for 38 years. Jesus was in Jerusalem for the feast of the Jews, and he decided to visit this pool, where the diseased and disabled frequented. Jesus, on the Sabbath, chose a man amongst the multitude. He asked him, “Do you want to get well?” Why did he ask this question? Because no change was going to be made until the man first acknowledged that he needed it; and that same question applies to us. Each time we choose to give into temptation, we are saying “No, I do not want to get well.” After Jesus asked the man if he wanted to get well, he acknowledged that he didn’t have the help he desired. Jesus cured him and he was able to walk. The cure was not just for himself. The cure was also so that the man could tell others how he was healed. God wants you to start fresh, and every day is a new opportunity to do so. To start fresh, you must first acknowledge that you cannot do it on your own. Once you acknowledge this, and become receptive to God, He can move in your life. And when you receive that healing, you will have a testimony to share with others. Like the paralyzed man, you will be able to share with others that you didn’t make it on your strength alone, but that you serve and Almighty God who brought you out of the dark into the light. This process may not happen overnight. Often, God builds patience in us through the waiting period. No matter how long the wait, commit to submitting to the Lord’s will; and when the wait is over, you will be glad you answered, “Yes I want to made well.”   Read More

Loving From A Distance
by No Limits on September 11th, 2021
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. – John 15:12 It is easy to love someone who is loving, but what about those who you consider to be hard to love? It’s often difficult to love others because our love is conditional, based on how we feel. However, God measures love by our obedience and not our transitory emotions.1 John 5:2-3 states, “This is how we know that w...  Read More

Be A Disciple First
by No Limits on September 9th, 2021
“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” – John 12:26 What is a disciple? A disciple is a follower of Christ who studies the Word of God and seeks to live righteously. John 12:26 is articulating that in order to be a leader to others, you must first be a follower to Christ; because you cannot lead others to Him if you ...  Read More
