Mark 12:31 (KJV)

As our awesome Raleigh crowd is preparing for Bible School this year, my teacher heart gets so excited to have the chance to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our school-aged children! I am constantly humbled by the responsibility I have in showing holiness to our children. This is such an important work.

We must remember every child is created and cherished in the eyes of God. We all come with our own unique personalities and backgrounds and are influenced and taught by all different types of people. Sometimes the kids who need our most patient teaching are the ones who test our patience.

Mark 12:31 states, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Show them Jesus. Be the person who stays calm and smiles the next morning in greeting when something went wrong the day before. It may seem like nothing to you, but it can mean everything to them. Let’s make the five mornings of Bible School that we are with the children leave such an impression of the Father’s great love, that they remember it for the other 360 days.

Lord help us share your amazing life-changing news! Equip us with your spirit, may we step back and allow you to have full reign in the chapel next week. Unite our crowd in this common goal. May we be Jesus to every person we meet, big and small. Amen!

God's Love

As we head into the celebration of our country¹s Independence. I am reminded of the freedoms for which I am most thankful.  This week, I am thinking about love.  The love that we share with our families and friends is special, but the Love of God is miraculous.  It brings life and hope!

Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

On this Independence day, remember Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice to bring us true love and independence.

Isaiah 40: 17-18 (KJV)

When we think about God, words can’t describe his greatness and majesty. His power and love are indescribable and nothing or no one can be compared to him. Isaiah 40:17-18 says All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? The answer is simple, nothing or no one can be compared to Him.

One attribute of God that can’t be compared is His love towards us all. God loves us unconditionally and His compassions toward us are new every morning. Why God loves us is difficult to explain but God is love! This week as you go about your day, consider God’s goodness and love towards you.

Have a great week!

1 Samuel 16:7 (KJV)

1 Samuel 16:7 states, “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

This passage from the Bible describes God’s conversation with the prophet Samuel concerning who is to be King over Israel. He is explaining to Samuel that David, who at the time is a young shepherd boy, is to replace Saul as King. From this text, we can clearly see that God is most concerned about man’s inward appearance. King Saul had been disobedient to God’s commands and has shown disrespect and arrogance by making excuses for his actions. Saul may have looked the part of King but God knew what was in his heart. He knew the real King Saul.

Human nature is no different today. Man’s outward appearance is worshipped today more than we realize and is a trap that many fall prey. On the other hand, what God really sees and respects is inner beauty. God wants to see in us a spirit of genuine honesty, integrity, humility, charity, modesty, obedience, etc. These are the qualities in people that God notices. We should strive to be more like God and notice these qualities in others and give them reverence no matter their intellect, social status, or outward appearance.

In 1 Peter 3:4, we read, “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”

Have a great week!

Psalms 16:5-6 (KJV)

Psalms 16: 5-6 states, "The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage."

What could we strive for in this temporary life on earth? In the verses above is referenced, inheritance and heritage. These are both given through grace and not of any particular merit, it is, quite simply, a status. Should we be entrusted with temporal gifts, may we endeavor to care for them. How much more our eternal inheritance which God has so graciously given to all who would partake? Once we understand and possess what God has available for us, may He help us take proper care of what He has gifted.
