Your Family   For some of you, your family is a mission field. It’s not always easy, but some believers spend every day living on mission in front of parents, spouses, or children who have not yet come to accept Jesus as their Savior.   I (Rob) personally grew up in a good home. My parents did not go to church, though. It became a reality to me very early on…

Your neighbors   Jesus told us to love our neighbors the way that we love ourselves. In other words, we should be very intentional, thoughtful, and selfless in the way we see those around us.   It’s easy to want your home to be a sanctuary. We like our homes to be a retreat from the world, a place where we can let loose, kick off our shoes, and be comfortable.…

Monday This week we’re going to be taking a look at different ways we can go about being more proactive in our bringing.   In our workplace We’ve all got to go to work every week. It’s part of life. Work is actually something that God wanted for us and before sin came into the world we actually enjoyed it.  We were made to work. Yet for so many people going to work…

It’s easy to be selfish. It really is. It is difficult to think of a greater purpose. It’s hard to think of others first. It’s hard to focus on obedience rather than self. Yet the hardest tasks in this life always reap the greatest reward. When we focus on something great we see our life poured into something we could have never imagine. God does things we…

Work with everything.   What are you holding back? What is it in your life that maybe you haven’t handed over to God? Is there something that still lingers in the back of your mind that you don’t truly want him to have?   When we give everything to God it’s with the knowledge that we may not reap in this life, but we will be rewarded in the next. We know…

We live as examples.   Believe it or not,  and like it or not, people are judging all of us because of you. If you claim Jesus, if they know you go to church, everything you do is automatically assigned to the rest of us. It’s not really fair. It doesn’t make sense. That doesn’t stop it from happening though. I cannot tell you the countless number of…

You’ve got to work at it. Sometimes I think we expect it to just happen. Like one day we’ll wake up and want to read our Bible. Like, one day we’ll roll out of bed and the desires will be gone, the struggle will be no more, and we’ll just listen to God with ease. And truthfully that will happen, but only in eternity.   In this life, listening to God and choosing his…

There is a constant struggle between flesh and spirit. There are things I know I want, but there are things I know God wants for me. This can create a real war within us to determine who we will follow. This week we’re going to be talking about how we can learn to follow God’s leading and be Obedient rather than succumbing to the desires of our flesh. Today, before we…

James 3:16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.   We’ve got to check our hearts regularly. It’s too easy to let these things creep in and cause issues. It’s too easy to just go on autopilot and hope things work out in our faith. If we glean anything from this passage in James it should be that…

Galatians 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”   Everything that Jesus has called us to do for others can be summed up quite simply as “love your neighbor as yourself.”   This tells me a few things. First, the way I treat the people around me needs to be loving. I need to be a loving factor in the lives of…

1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.   Sometimes selflessness comes in the form of forgiveness. It’s realizing someone else has definitely done something wrong and deciding to let it go. It’s knowing you have the right to be angry, the right to want justice, and you…

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.   We are competitive people. We really are. We put our kids in sports at a young age and drive them to win. We’re a culture built around the idea of winning. While there is nothing inherently wrong with good competition, we tend to make a competition out…
