The Promise of God's Redemption
by Delman Coates on November 6th, 2023
"So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us." – Hebrews 6:16-18 In a world marked by brokenness and sin, the promise...

Do You Still Believe?
by Delman Coates on March 29th, 2023
“And then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of Him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.” - Luke 2:37-38 Over the last few days, we have talked about waiting on God. Waiting is something we see countless times thr...
God’s Blessing Of Reconciliation
by Ministry Support on December 13th, 2021

And he has committed us to the message of reconciliation.” - 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 God has not only blessed us with redemption, as we spoke about yesterday, but God also blessed us with reco...
God’s Blessing Of Redemption

Promoters of a Second Chance
by Ministry Support on October 31st, 2021
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” - 1 John 1:9 As Christians, we should strive to be more like Jesus. One of the ways we can do this in a way that encourages, challenges, and strengthens other Christians, is to help release people to their future rather than holding them hostage to their past. Instead of punishing ...

The Great Redeemer
by Ministry Support on May 26th, 2021
So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” (1 Samuel 30:8) Mandarin is one of the more popular dialects or families of the Chinese language.

Using The Good And The Bad
by Ministry Support on April 4th, 2021
When the Lord began to speak through Hosea, the Lord said to him, “Go, marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her, for like an adulterous wife this land is guilty of unfaithfulness to the Lord.” So he married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son. (Hosea 1:2-3)And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called ac...
The Fight Left In You
by Ministry Support on October 29th, 2020
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…” – 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 After David has experienced so much loss in 1 Samue...
Trust God’s Plan
by Ministry Support on August 23rd, 2020
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.

And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may also be. (John 14:1-3) In today’s key passage, Jesus is trying to tell His...
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...
