Obeying God usually feels risky. Doing the hard things in faith is an act of defiant hope. Jeremiah shows us what this hope looks like when he buys a field in the middle of a gloomy situation. From Jeremiah 32.
The waiting room is never fun. Waiting on God to fulfill his promises is not enjoyable either. Th exiles had to wait and we are waiting too. It is this in-between period that requires enormous faith to truth God’s promises. Grab those promises and don’t let go! From Jeremiah 30-31.
Jeremiah 29:11 is a favorite verse for many today. The original recipients world had been turned upside down and needed hope. It can provide us hope as well. It just may not be the instant solution we’d like. It will require a greater faith.
God frequently uses illustrations to communicate his heart for us. Jeremiah is commanded to use a rotten belt and a potter’s wheel to help his people understand their spiritual state. They may also help you understand something about your life as well.
Jeremiah stands at the gate of the temple to confront the misalignment of what the people declare of God and the reality of the way they treat others. God is not pleased with correct theology without correct living. Are those in alignment in your life?
Jeremiah was used by God to call his people away from their idols back to himself. He doesn’t call people to rules but to a relationship. What might he be calling you away from in order to return to relationship with himself?
God has been faithful to use this church in its first 10 years. What are the essentials we must keep doing as we look ahead? How does the mission of Jesus shape our future together?
Fostering and adopting are one of the most beautiful expressions of love. Today we celebrate the ministry of Agape of Central Alabama and our partnership to provide nurturing homes for vulnerable children.
Women have made significant advances in society in the last 100 years, rising to lead business, government, and military positions. Should the church adapt or hold fast to its traditions regarding women? How does scripture speak about their leadership in the ministry of the local church? The answer is a little complicated.
Men and women have sought to understand the will of God from the earliest days of creation. Let’s be honest, it isn’t easy. Yet scripture provides some guidance and examples to help us in our understanding to be able to discern the voice of our Shepherd.
More than half of your Bible is called the “old” part. What does that even mean? How do we relate to it? If you want to understand all that Jesus is for us, you’re going to need this part of your Bible.
In this conclusion to Acts, Paul has an unexpected layover in Malta on the way to Rome. God has a purpose for it. God also has a purpose for the unplanned stops in your life too. Part 20 from Acts 28.
