A Rough Time in the Life of Jonah

What do we learn from Jonah?  In a message from Daniel DeVerna, missionary to Japan we learn about our own heart when it comes to the lost.  While initially he was disobedient, he eventually did what the Lord asked of him.  But we see in the end that it was not with a perfect heart […]

If That Isn’t Love

04 01 John 3:16-18 On this Easter Sunday what greater passage to turn than the simple message of John 3:16-18.  In this wonderful Scripture is the essence of the gospel as we look at God’s great love.  We see the cause of God’s great love, the cost of God’s great love, the clause in God’s great […]

Agony Amidst the Adoration

03 25 Luke 19:41-44 On Palm Sunday we join the crowds in welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem.  He is worthy of all praise.  Yet in the middle of all the adoration that is being heaped on Jesus, there is another response.  It’s from Jesus Himself.  He is filled with agony.  As He nears Jerusalem, His heart is […]

Are You Swimming or Drifting?

03 18 II Peter 1:5-7 Just whose responsibility is it anyway for spiritual growth.  Verses 3 and 4 seem to suggest it is God’s responsibility.  Verses 5-7 suggest that it is the believer’s responsibility.  It’s not an either/or but a both/and when it comes to spiritual growth.  God has given us the tools while He expects […]

All We Need

03 04 II Peter 1:3 Our verse tells us that God has given us EVERYTHING we need for “life and godliness”.  Life refers to salvation.  We read in Philippians 1:6 that what God began (spiritual life at salvation) He will continue to maturity until Christ comes back.  God won’t begin something He can’t finish.  He is […]

It’s More Than a Greeting

02 25 II Peter 1:2 Peter’s opening verses are more than a greeting.  They are words to encourage through difficult times by experiencing the grace and peace that are ours through knowing God.  We see the abundance of grace and peace, the availability of grace and peace and the application of grace and peace.  These come […]

By Way of Introduction

02 18 II Peter 1:1 Peter begins his letter with a personal introduction.  By using just two terms he tells us quite a bit about himself.  He first describes that he is a servant.  Through lots of events in his life Peter had come to a point of humility identifying himself as a person wholly committed […]

A Rocky Road

Have you ever considered that life is essentially comprised of three types of rocks, just as in nature?  There is the rock of a stony heart, there is the rock of a surrendered heart, and there is the rock of a sinless heart.  Listen and figure out where you are on this journey we call […]
