• Three Lessons in How To Respond When Wronged By Others
    Date: Jul 11, 2010

    David finds that when God is at work in us it is not theoretical, it is real-time, daily life that the Lord wants to change in us. So to deepen the truths David learned at En Gedi in 1 Samuel 24, and make them a part of the fabric of David’s life, the Lord allows David to get deeply wounded by Nabal in a business deal (1 Samuel 25); and for Saul to start hunting David again (1 Samuel 26).

    Date: Jul 4, 2010

    Paul wrote Titus saying that God desires to see all mothers expressing to their children. But this love is not merely found in Titus 2:4, this nurturing love of closeness, friendship, and tender care is the very same love with which God built Christ's church from the very start.

    God launched His plan to train the women of Christ's Church using the godly older women He was already at work inside, and allowing their Spirit-led walk as they grew day-by-day, to flow out into the lives of younger women.

    This quality is God’s call for women of grace to wise living, encouraging counsel, discreet or focused living, and restraining life choices.

    Date: May 30, 2010

    As we open God's Word to the end of Titus 2:3, we arrive at the single most powerful quality of the entire Titus 2 men’s and women’s lists. This single word in the Greek language, sums up the entire reason we live on Earth. This statement of God’s plan for all women, in one word sums up all that will last forever.

    Date: May 23, 2010

    When we gather as we do today, and open God’s Word, we are asking Him to speak to us. Sometimes what we hear touches on a small part of our lives, other times what He says is huge.

    Date: May 2, 2010

    As we open to Titus 2, at this very moment, Satan is roaming the Earth trying to mess up God’s plan. His methods of attack are very focused, and are revealed in God's Word by his many names.

    Peter who fell into temptation and in fear for his own well being denied the Lord of Glory, Jesus Christ his Savior--was so completely restored and given a new beginning, that he stood up in front of thousands of people (many of them witnesses of his own denial and fall) and charged them with the sin of denying Christ!
