Acts 2: 46-47 (KJV)


Acts 1:14 states, "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

In Acts 2:1 we read, "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place."

Acts 2: 46-47 states, "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people.  And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved."

Camp Meeting 2018, what a wonderful week we had last week worshipping the Lord with many brothers and sisters, seeing lost souls find new life in Christ Jesus.  Oh how beautiful to see the transformation in a life that is only available through the Spirit of God.  I have been thinking about what causes so many souls to look to camp meeting as a place for a new start.  While I realize there are many things that play a part in this, this year I couldn’t help being challenged by the fact that one major reason is that we bathe this week in prayer well before we get there.  Not only that, we all approach that week in one accord, expecting blessings to flow, and expecting souls to seek to be saved.  So the challenge I left Camp Meeting with this year….We only have 51 weeks remaining until Camp Meeting 2019, what will we do with those 51 weeks?

Psalms 90:1-4 (KJV)


A teacher friend shared this testimony with me, hope it blesses you!  Have you ever been stuck, running through the rain without an umbrella? This happens to me sometimes, I’m in my classroom when a downpour occurs and it’s time to go to my car. Guess where my umbrella is? In the car. After getting my kids, my bags, everything else in, finally, I get in, drenched, shivering and miserable. Other times, I am more prepared. I pop my umbrella up and I am protected from the weather. 

Isn’t life sometimes like that? It’s like the world starts raining down its negativity, its harshness, its condemnation. The last thing we want is to be drenched in such rain. Remember that God and His love is like our umbrella, our protection, our solace in the storm. It can be raining all around us, harsh words, anger, strife, ungodly behaviors, and negativity, but under our umbrella, we are guarded safe and secure from all alarm. This umbrella of God’s love can guard our hearts, allowing the Holy Spirit to keep out what isn’t of Him and keep in what is of Him. When we pop up the umbrella of God’s love, we stand out in the crowd, and can offer and share His love with the people who are walking beside us. We can invite them to come under our umbrella of love as we share with them the love of our Savior.

Psalms 91:1-4 states, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” Don’t get drenched in negativity this week! Pop open God’s umbrella of love.

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!

Mike
