“Finding Satisfaction in Christ”

An Evangelism Explosion presentation pictures a person bobbing in the middle of an ocean after they’ve been tossed from their boat in the midst of a storm. A Coast Guard vessel arrives as the person is going down for the third time, and a sailor throws a lifeline connected to a life preserver. Do you hang on to the wreckage, or do you let go and grab hold of the invitation to be saved? Jesus is the only Savior, for this life and the next. Are you hungering and thirsting for Him and for His righteousness?

“Prayer for Insight”

Ephesians 1:15-23  (NASB) 15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge…

“Blessed Are the Gentle: Finding My Identity in Christ”

The Evangelism Explosion presentation explains, “Heaven (eternal life) is a free gift you cannot earn it or deserve it.” But what about the earth? Have you considered that the Christian shall also inherit the earth? And it is neither the ambitious nor the important “Christian” who shall inherit it, but the gentle and meek; the humble. Are you trusting Christ for the blessedness that He promises in being gentle?

A Time to Mourn: Finding My Identity in Christ

Do you aspire to greatness? Do you have what it takes to be great? But how do your desires measure up to the will of God? What if being great meant that you were the least? What if significance in the kingdom of God meant that you were insignificant in the kingdom of this world? What if the way to finding comfort was not through the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:15-17), but through grief and mourning?

“Salvation Is from the Lord”

Jonah 2:7-10 (NASB) 7 “While I was fainting away, I remembered the Lord, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple. 8 “Those who regard vain idols Forsake their faithfulness, 9 But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will pay. Salvation is from the Lord.” 10 Then the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land.

“Citizen of Heaven”

11 So they said to him, “What should we do to you that the sea may become calm for us?”—for the sea was becoming increasingly stormy. 12 He said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I know that on account of me this great storm has…

“The Safest Place”

Jonah 1:1-3 (NASB) Jonah’s Disobedience 1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.” 3 But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare…
