Encourage: With one shoulder

CHRISTMAS: The reality of God’s favor

DURHAM, N.C. (BP) — What do we mean when we talk about the “favor of God”? The house you’ve always wanted goes into foreclosure and you buy it for a steal.

Powerful prayer: A covenant for a God-seeking 2019

As we approach the end of 2018 and enter 2019, what is it that God seeks most from His people? Two things we know for sure are to love Him with all our hearts and seek first His kingdom and righteousness (Matt. 6:33, 22:37; Rev. 2:1). But what could cause 2019 to truly be a year of sweeping personal, family and church renewal? How could the coming year be a turning point in our relationship with God?

Strengthen: Encourage church-wide Bible reading

As another year draws to a close, our thoughts naturally trend toward the celebration of the gift of God’s Son at Christmas. It’s a special time of the year that I pray will be blessed in your family and church. It is also a time of the year when we start to consider the New Year and what it has in store.
