The Multi-Colored Butterfly
by Ministry Support on February 18th, 2022
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28 Yesterday, we highlighted the story of the 5-year-old boy who made a gift in his classroom for his father, a college professor. When his dad came to visit him on the last day before Christmas, the boy, with so much joy, ran to his father to give him the gift ...

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28 There is a story about a professor who arrived at his 5-year-old son’s class on the last day of school before Christmas to attend a school program. When his son saw him, the little boy grabbed the ceramic gift he had made for his father and ran towards his da...
A Test Of Love
by Ministry Support on February 11th, 2022
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” - Matthew 6:21 The third type of test God uses to spiritually develop us is a test of love. It’s easy to rely on earthly possessions to make us feel successful or important. However, those earthly possessions are not what give us worth. Our worth can only be found in Jesus. There are times that God needs to remove those earthly things s...
How To Treat A Stranger
by Ministry Support on January 16th, 2022
“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” – Hebrews 13:2 The reason God commands His children to love the stranger, welcome the stranger, and to include the stranger because at some point, we will all be a “stranger.” And we would want hospitality shown to us as we are called to show it to others. Leviticus...
As I Have Loved You
by Ministry Support on January 14th, 2022
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” - John 13:34 Do you love others like you love Jesus? This is what God’s command for us as believers. There should be a noticeable difference in the way you walk and the way you talk. It’s easy to love those who love us, but how do you approach those who appear to be less than loveable? We love those...

“There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?” - James 4:12 Have you ever read an entertainment news headline and assumed a fact about a person or group of people in the article based on the limited facts presented? Or have you judged a person based on someone’s else’s perception of that person? We have all been guilty of pre...
Faith Is God’s Love Language
by Ministry Support on November 20th, 2021
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” - Hebrews 11:6 Throughout the Bible, God illustrates that what happens for us, in us, and through us is a result of standing on our faith when times get tough. Faith, sincere faith, sparks the delight of God. What communicates to God t...
Are You Walking Away?
by Ministry Support on October 30th, 2021
“…There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. - Romans 3:22-24 Are you walking away from the church or removing yourself from a Christian friend group? Maybe you made a mistake (even a big one), and you cannot stand to hear the judgment and lectur...
Can You Throw The Stone?
by Ministry Support on October 28th, 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...
God’s Promises Are Sure
by Ministry Support on September 25th, 2021
“For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding ‘Yes!’ And through Christ, our ‘Amen’ ascends to God for his glory.” - 2 Corinthians 1:20The Bible says that God is not a man that should lie. If He spoke it, He will bring it to pass. One reason so many people give up on God in the waiting process is because they do not live as if God is certainly going to do what He said ...
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...
An Offer of Love
by Ministry Support on August 9th, 2021
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” - Revelation 3:20 Christ stands at the door and knocks not only to offer restoration, not only to provide courage, but also to offer the power of His love. When someone is trying to sell a product to you, you initially may be skeptical. You want proof...
A Date With The Divine
by Ministry Support on August 5th, 2021
“The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.” - Revelation 3:5 Like the church at Sardis, many of us appear to the public as being alive and well. But privately, we are dead. We struggle with depression, anxiety, lack of positive self-image, and ...
Standing At The Door
by Ministry Support on August 1st, 2021
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” - Revelation 3:20-21 There was a young salesman who made a living selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door...
Don’t Miss The Signs
by Ministry Support on June 16th, 2021
“Do not be unequal yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” - 2 Corinthians 6:14 Before entering into a relationship, do you consider everything you have learned and observed about the person or do you simply jump in without any concerns? Or worse, do you ignore those concerns and believe those issues are not a bi...
Do You Accept Christ’s Forgiveness?
by Ministry Support on June 11th, 2021
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:8 Over the past few days, we have talked about forgiveness and what it looks like for you to forgive someone who has wronged you. We have talked about the freedom it gives when you are finally able to forgive, and we have talked about how when you are willing to forgive, Christ forgives ...
Take A Time Out
by Ministry Support on May 25th, 2021
“Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. (Mark 6:31) Life is a lot like sports, and there are so many principles we can take away from watching and playing sports. For instance, in a game of basketball, when the game is getting away from you, when the opponent is running up the score, and it seems as if thi...
A Compassionate And Gracious God
by Ministry Support on June 1st, 2020
But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. (Psalm 86:15) Have you ever taken the time to really think about how gracious God is towards you? Even if you tried to think about it, there’s no way you could fully grasp and fathom just how gracious, merciful, and loving the Lord is towards you and every other one of His children. This is su...
