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

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

Holding Everything Loosely

March 23, 2020 | by: Christine Aylett | 0 Comments

Luke 14:25-35 Jesus talks in this passage about discipleship. Churches today have a tendency to make salvation and God's grace easy: "Come to Jesus and everything will be OK." Jesus was the complete opposite -  telling the crowds of the cost of discipleship. God needs to be first in our relationships and in whatever we think of as important... Keep Reading

He Knows…

During this past week as I was praying, I found myself asking God if I could see His will in all of this. I had a vision. I saw the earth and it was all covered in a huge snow storm. I immediately thought of the scripture: “Come now, and let us reason together:”, Says the Lord, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as whi... Keep Reading

The primary purpose of fasting is self-humbling. It is a scriptural means ordained by God for us to humble ourselves before Him. Throughout the bible, God requires his people to humble themselves before Him. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. - Matthew 18:4 For those who exalt themselves w... Keep Reading

An Old-Fashioned Word that Still Applies

March 18, 2020 | by: Shea Oakley | 0 Comments

"What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin;how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just a...

Forgiven to Forgive

March 17, 2020 | by: Sarah-Ann Yersin | 2 Comments

Matthew 18:21-35 What has God forgiven us for through his precious son, Jesus? There is no amount of words that could possibly encompass the magnitude of our forgiven sins. Jesus's parable about the unmerciful servant is a humbling example of the quickness of our hearts to hold onto offenses committed against us when we in fact should be hel... Keep Reading
