Aching for the Kingdom Through Fasting

April 9, 2020 | by: Chris Francis | 0 Comments

The idea of fasting stinks. I tend to get a little depressed when I know I’m going to be fasting.  In fact, I am probably bothered more by the thought of fasting that I am by the bad news headlines I’m hearing everyday.   Actually, can I be honest? It may even be true that I am more bummed by the prospect of being hu... Keep Reading

31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” 33 But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.” 34 Jesus answered, ... Keep Reading

Serving From Confidence

John 13:1-17 In the final few days before Jesus’ crucifixion, John 13 talks about a meeting with his disciples for Passover meal. At the meal there has been no servant present to wash their feet as was the custom, since their feet would get very dirty just walking in sandals in everyday life. The disciples who had previously had discussio... Keep Reading

Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 T...

Guarded Hearts

Pilippians 4:6-7 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ. Do not be anxious about anything! Easier said than done lately. It seems like that i... Keep Reading

You're Gonna' Lose

March 31, 2020 | by: Nicole Riconda | 0 Comments

Today I told Satan, "You're gonna lose. In the end, you're going to LOSE." I thought that puny little devil might need reminding of that. Here is our scripture for today. It's a great one.  John 16:32-33 "A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each of you to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not a... Keep Reading

Don’t Be Afraid to Pray BIG

March 29, 2020 | by: Tom Sargent | 3 Comments

  Do we put a limit on our God? It may seem like a silly question since we are in no position to do so but I pose the question all the same.  More accurately the question could be framed – do we put a limit on our expectations of our God? For me, and I suspect for many of you, the answer is yes.  One of the many effects of... Keep Reading

Let the Walls Fall

March 27, 2020 | by: Sarah-Ann Yersin | 0 Comments

"For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come." Hebrews 13:14 While above is just a small portion of the reading plan passage for today, it struck me the most. In the last two weeks, more than ever before in my lifetime (and arguably yours too, no matter your age), these verses carry weight. We are all... Keep Reading

No Self-Condemnation

March 24, 2020 | by: Shea Oakley | 0 Comments

1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering&nb...

Fasting Reveals the State of Our Hearts

March 24, 2020 | by: Rebecca Carlson | 0 Comments

About six months ago my friend from college suggested we all begin fasting together on Thursdays. I had fasted with True Life on Thursdays in the past and, wanting to renew that commitment anyway, it felt like God's leading. Previously, when I had fasted I had abstained from radio shows and music in the car. I had a long commute at the time so it... Keep Reading
