“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 3:20As we discussed yesterday, God is not just “out there somewhere.” He is a personal God who wants a personal relationship with you.

A Personal God
by Carson Crowe on April 1st, 2022
“For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.” - Isaiah 43:3Growing up I used to watch old television shows and sitcoms that were popular back in the 50s and 60s. In those shows, I’d often see something that was quite shocking. Whenever people got sick, doctors would take the time to come to the home of the person needi...  Read More

by Ministry Support on August 8th, 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.

by Ministry Support on June 18th, 2021

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” - Isaiah 43:18-19  The past couple of days we have talked about missing the signs.

Time is (NOT) Running Out
by Ministry Support on June 17th, 2021
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” - Ecclesiastes 3:1    Over the course of this month, we talked about the story of Abigail marrying Nabal and the trouble that marriage gave her. She missed all the warning signs, and as a consequence, she ended up in a bad marriage. Like Abigail, many people find themselves in an unfulfilling relationship because they ig...  Read More

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...  Read More

by Ministry Support on June 7th, 2021

What Value Do They Have?
by Ministry Support on June 5th, 2021
“The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.” - Proverbs 12:26 There is a quote that says “You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully.” While this quote is not taken directly from Scripture, there is a lot of truth to it, and perhaps it is the reason the Bible talks so much about choosing your friends carefully. The qu...  Read More

Is Your Relationship Complementing You?
by Ministry Support on June 4th, 2021
“And you have been made complete in Christ, which is head over every ruler and authority.” - Colossians 2:10 Does your relationship complement you or complete you?

by Ministry Support on June 3rd, 2021
“A certain man in Maon, who had property there at Carmel, was very wealthy. He had a thousand goats and three thousand sheep, which he was shearing in Carmel.
