The Lord Who Provides

We are talking about the importance of baptism, the declaration that we know Christ as our personal Savior. We call ourselves Christians, it identifies us as followers of Christ.  One of the most significant characteristics of a Christian is to walk in obedience.  Jesus explained this repeatedly during his ministry.  He explained that faith is necessary for our salvation, but then he said that “if you love me you will...

Communion

After the fall of mankind, the promise was given by God that there would be one who would deliver us.  The hope of the Messiah, the Redeemer.

The Peril of Greed

Greed has a lot of companions, envy, covet, and more.  Greed can show up in many areas, the attention we seek , popularity, authority, possessions, friends, and so many others. Godliness is great gain if it is with contentment, but real contentment is not related to circumstances.  We brought nothing into this world with us and we will take nothing with us when we leave.  With food and covering we...

We are learning from Elisha as he faces impossible situations.  Then, as now, going through difficult times is an indication that only God can meet your needs.  Today we learn what tools are available to help, what should we do? – Relate it to God, bring it to God in prayer. Acknowledge that god is in control.  We are not praying to change the situation, but to surrender it to...

Facing Impossible Situations

Have you ever said to yourself, “I just don’t know how I am going to get through this?” – or – “I just don’t know what to do anymore.” We think some situations are just impossible, but Jesus said that what is impossible with man is possible with God. Impossible means “without power.”  We lack what we need to carry us through difficult situations.  Humanly speaking we can’t change things,...

Elisha faced 6 impossible situations, one right after another.  Man is faced with impossibility but God is able to do...
