Move in Love
by Delman Coates on April 16th, 2023
“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” - Colossians 3:13-14  One of the easiest ways to forgive someone who has done you wrong is simply to “move in love.” You might be thinking, “But you don’t know what they’ve done to me.....  Read More
The One You Miss
by Delman Coates on March 22nd, 2023
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6  Jesus can be all around you and you can still miss Him completely. The presence of the Lord can be moving, and you still leave the same way you can because you think you have time. I remember meeting someone very special a few years ago. They were right there. I was talking t...  Read More

Still True
by Delman Coates on March 13th, 2023
“The sum of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous rules endures forever.” - Psalm 119:160  Yesterday, we looked at how the promises of God are still possible in your life. No matter what you are currently going through, no problem you have or ever will have can cancel the promises of God.  Whatever He has assured you is still possible. But it’s not just possible, it’s a guarantee. Be...  Read More
Bounce Back
by Delman Coates on February 18th, 2023
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” - Romans 8:37  In 2017, Big Sean released the song “Bounce Back.” The lyrics go; “Last night took an L but tonight I bounce back.” The “L” is referring to loss. It is a famous catchphrase that is now said more often than when the song was first released. But it’s not just catchy, it’s the truth. As believers, when we g...  Read More
Remember Your Past
by Delman Coates on January 18th, 2023
“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains sacrifice for sins.” - Hebrews 10:26  As we continue to look at your story, we must understand why it is important to share that story. Everyone has a story to tell. And God wants you to share your story! You never know who is listening and who needs to hear exactly what you have been through ...  Read More
Jesus’ Example
by Ministry Support on November 23rd, 2022
“For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in His steps.” - 1 Peter 2:21  If you want to get closer to God, the best thing you can do is follow the example that Jesus set for us. Think about everything Jesus has done throughout the gospels.  He showed compassion to a Samaritan who was an outcast. He helped a ...  Read More

“Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.” - John 10:9  Recently I tried to watch a new television series but realized at the last minute that I didn’t have the streaming service that it was playing on. I thought it was on Netflix but discovered later that it was on Hulu. It’s a dilemma that those of us who watch movi...  Read More
Be About It
by Ministry Support on October 26th, 2022
“Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” - 1 John 3:18  The older you get, the more you realize that trying to be cool, trying to fit in, trying to be liked, and trying to impress others really doesn’t work; because the more you do that, the more you have to do. Jesus had just performed several signs in John 6, and here the crowd wanted H...  Read More
When You Can’t Get Closure
by Ministry Support on September 3rd, 2022
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:19   Clarity. Over the last two days, we have been discussing clarity. Oftentimes, to move on and write the next chapter of our lives, we need clarity over a situation that happened in our past. We want to wrap a nice little bow around the past ...  Read More
Trusting and Doubting
by Ministry Support on April 24th, 2021
When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:13-16)As a devoted Jew, Peter was...  Read More

Trust That God Loves You
by Ministry Support on January 18th, 2021
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 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 3:19-20)  Have you ever read something in the Bible and wondered, “That may have been true for them back then, but is it true for me now?” There’s no doubt it can be difficu...  Read More
Send Me
by Ministry Support on December 27th, 2020
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9)  When the Lord asks, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” this is a question we all qualify to answer. But sadly, rather than saying, “Yes Lord, send me, I’ll go,” far too many of us say, “No, not yet Lord. Hold on! Wait until I g...  Read More
Abundance Over Scarcity
by Ministry Support on December 24th, 2020
You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's. (Exodus 20:17)  Jealousy is so powerful that it can corrupt the truth in the mouth of the believer. So when the believer speaks out of jealousy, the power and effect of the word of God is muted by the presenc...  Read More
The Repercussions Of Jealousy
by Ministry Support on December 22nd, 2020
But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. (James 3:14-15)  The epistle of James is a letter written to early Christians in the Jewish diaspora. His purpose is twofold: to minister to persecuted believers i...  Read More
Money Isn’t Everything
by Ministry Support on December 6th, 2020
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)  Our culture today is one that values money and wealth. If ...  Read More
The Lord Is Your Only Guarantee
by Ministry Support on October 23rd, 2020
When David and his men came to the city, they found it burned down, and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept, until they had no more strength to weep. David’s two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam of Jezreel, and Abigail the widow of Nabal of Carmel. David was in great danger; for the people spoke of sto...  Read More

by Ministry Support on October 6th, 2020
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.” Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. – Mark 5:27-29  For the past few days we’ve been talking about the woman with the bleeding disease who is healed by Jesus in Mark chapter 5.

Getting Fed
by Ministry Support on August 28th, 2020
So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls. And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching… (Acts 2:41-42a)  A while back I went to the grocery store to get some food. My fridge and pantry were getting low, and I needed to restock my food supply to get me through another couple of weeks. When I went to the grocery store on this par...  Read More
