Following Christ Together in Grace and Truth

quotes

Is it godly to be busy?

I want to appear important. What better way than to be busy? The incredible hours, the crowded schedule, and the heavy demands of my time are proof to myself and to all who will notice – that I am important. …I live in a society in which crowded schedules and harassed conditions are evidence of importance, so I develop a crowded schedule…

A Love Affair with Sin

“Our love affairs with sin are not just a matter of morality, though, but of joy. This is not just about faithfulness to God, but about finding our deepest, most satisfying fulfillment. Many people think following Jesus means surrendering our happiness. You can either enjoy a fun, passionate, and exciting life here for a short time or live a bland, boring, but…

Works of Service

We often forget that the body of Christ comes together to serve, not receive. Here is a Scriptural reminder of that truth. Ephesians 4:11–13 (NIV) — 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until…

What We Are Building This Church On

As the main preacher/teacher here, I totally resonate with this quote. It was shared with me by a friend, and I was not able to track down the article it came from. A simple way to say this is that we are a Christ-centered church family that is people-focused and not program-oriented. We believe that our mission is to help people follow…

Do not doubt the truth – doubt yourself

“A man was meant to be doubtful about himself, but undoubting about the truth; this has been exactly reversed. Nowadays the part of a man that a man does assert is exactly the part he ought not to assert — himself.” (G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy)

the importance of future perspective while undergoing temptation

A loss of future perspective makes you crazy. Almost every adultery situation I’ve ever seen, for instance, includes a cheating spouse who honestly believes that he or she is not going to get caught. The cheater often doesn’t want the marriage to end in divorce but instead wants to keep everything the same—spouse, kids, and lover, too. That’s irrational and completely contrary…

Fools

  “We are great fools when we think that we can find pleasure in sin, or profit in rebellion. We are great fools when we displease our God,—when our best Friend, on whom our eternal future depends, is despised, neglected, and even rejected and hated by us. It is the extreme of folly when a man loses the good will of one…

from “Radical”

“Indeed, God knows every detail of our lives, and when we step out in faith to follow him, he will show us that our greatest security is not found in the comforts we can manufacture in this world but in the faithful provision of the only one who knows our needs and the only one who is able to meet our needs…

Is this true?

“10% of the people do 90% of the work, but 90% of the people think they are part of the 10%” (Orrin Woodward). Is this true of the church? I am trying to disprove this quote in my mind, but I cannot get past the fact that at heart I believe what Orrin is saying. Tragic. The church needs a wakeup call.
