“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 Every March, one of the biggest sporting events of the year takes place—the NCAA National Basketball Tournament, better known as “March Madness.” People from all over the country, whether they watch basketball or not, fill out brackets and try to predict roun...

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” - Proverbs 3:5-6 As we have mentioned over the last few days, God wants to see what you will do when facing adversity. No matter how obedient you have been to Him, He will allow trials and tribulations to come upon you, and often times He just wants...
Use Mistakes As Fuel
by Ministry Support on June 28th, 2020
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” (John 21:15) Every time I read the story of Peter denying Jesus, the one thing that always sticks out to me is that Peter’s story doesn’t end with his denial. Instead, Jesus gives Peter another chance, and Pete...
The Good In The Bad
by Ministry Support on June 27th, 2020
Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. (Titus 2:4) Based upon what we know about ourselves and what we know we’ve done, many of us wouldn’t choose ourselves for the position of representing Christ. Think about some of the stuff you’ve done, the mistakes you’ve made. You wouldn’t choose your...
The Danger In Pride
by Ministry Support on June 26th, 2020
“Truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “today—yes, tonight—before the rooster crows twice you yourself will disown me three times.” But Peter insisted emphatically, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the others said the same. (Mark 14:30-31) The story of Peter’s denial of Jesus was so significant that you can find it in all four of the gospels. On the night Jesus is ar...
Persevere Through Mistakes
by Ministry Support on June 22nd, 2020
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12) As a teenager, I was selected once by the coaches in our high school baseball district as being the best hitter in the district that year. My batting average was .375. If you know baseball, hitting over .300 is very ...

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3) When we feel burdened by our sin, when we are overwhelmed with guilt and shame from our mistakes, it can be so easy to fall into feeling hopeless. We lose sight of what good could come from our terrible circu...
Life Beyond Mistakes
by Ministry Support on June 12th, 2020
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13) There is a story of a tourist who was visiting a famous landmark on the ocean. During his visit, he walked out onto a pier so he could see the ocean better. But as he looked over the edge of the pier, he was disturbed by how deep the water looked. As he was thinking about how deep the water must be at this point, he noticed ...
A New Perspective On Failure
by Ministry Support on June 3rd, 2020
For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16) We all make mistakes. We’ve missed the mark at one time or another. Scripture reminds us of this inevitable fact when it says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Some mistakes are big, with huge consequences and implications, and others are small. But we all make mistakes, nonetheless. It doesn’t matter ...
