The Father’s Business

What comes to mind when you think about Father’s Day? Is it power tools and BBQs? New ties and #1 Dad Shirts? My family recently vacationed in Florida and spent a few days at Universal Studios. Just about every souvenir shop we entered had displays of fake Oscar awards. These awards display a man, standing […]

To The Word

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3 Over the past few years as we have been raising our children, one scripture that has repeatedly found its way into our life is Philippians 2:3.

Prayer

At the heart of the Gospel is the idea that fallen human beings need God to do for them what they cannot do for themselves. A Gospel-shaped heart and mind is one that looks to God in trust to provide what is needed. This spirit of dependence on God is often expressed in a believer’s […]

Through Not To

At the far end of our quiet mall there is a small collection of children’s rides. Now, you might not have travelled far enough down the empty corridors to know the specific ones I am talking about, but imagine the rides you used to see outside of a grocery store. The ones you put a […]

He Had Said

When ordering off the menu at most restaurants, I find myself first eyeing what has passed its way by my table. Not because I am particularly impressed by presentation, but one important factor for me in food decision making is how filling the meal I order will be. Often I stick to what I know […]

Marked: URGENT

In this message we open God’s Word together in Matthew 25. Here in the latter portion of this scripture we are given a glimpse through the words of Jesus into the final judgement. As Advent Christians it has always been part of our heritage to look at the soon and coming return of Christ, the […]

Worthless Devotion

What does a knowledge of God and His son Jesus do in your life? It is inherent in all of us that in each moment, our brains are making risk-reward decisions. We are willing to take higher risks with the greater probability of higher rewards and of course lower risks when the reward is also […]
