A Prepared Place
by Ministry Support on January 22nd, 2021
My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. (John 14:2-4) The reason the disciples didn’t have to let their hearts become overwhelmed with trouble was...

And we know that all things work together for the good of them that love God and are called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28 I want you to think about how many times “all” appears in Scripture.

Preparation From Brokenness
by Ministry Support on October 12th, 2020
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. – Romans 5:3-5 As followers of Jesus, we struggle with all kinds of trials and tough circumstances because of o...

She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” – Mark 5:27-28 Today’s key text reveals something that I believe was the key to helping this woman to endure her terrible circumstances.

Justice, Mercy, and Humility
by Ministry Support on September 19th, 2020
With what shall I come before the Lord and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require...
