Love Is Greater Than Knowledge

"This knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. If anyone imagines he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, he is known by God (1 Corinthians 8: 2-3)." We've all met them. They are annoying…know-it-alls. Let your mind go...

Sent

John 20:21New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” I attended a continuing education seminar last week with Wendy Votino (Children's and Youth Director) and Nancy Koscoe (Leadership...

Happy Are They Who Dwell In Your House…

“The sparrow has found her a house and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young; by the side of your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God (Psalm 84: 2-3).” Ever feel like you need a safe, quiet place to go and be still; a place of safety; a place where...

Weekly Devotion

Psalm 139:7 WHEN I LOOK at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? I love the word “question!” It contains its own meaning. To go on a...

Trust…A Great Memory Verse

 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3: 5-6)." For a period of time in my early twenties, I would drive to St. Pete College and listen to...

Why Does Knowledge Sometimes Lead To Death

"…but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die (Genesis 3: 3).'" Read Genesis 3. We equate knowledge with power and with life. Think of all the lives that have been saved by the...

A Daily Connection With God

Jesus replied (to Nicodemus), "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again (John 3:3)."   All of my Christian life I have been told how important it is to "get into the Word."  For much of my early Christian years I got the...

Happy New Year

"Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God (1 Samuel 17:26)?" I love this line from David.  He is the youngest of his brothers and likely the smallest.  He is not supposed to be anywhere near the battle lines.  Everyone is...

Time to Re Up

Is There Worship Sunday, December 27th?  Of course! What better way is there to continue to celebrate the Christmas season than by coming to worship the new born King!  Sing your favorite Christmas carols, pray, listen to Scripture, see friends and church family, and...
