Repentance - Not Just Saying I'm Sorry....

Walk with Jesus

Paul's first letter to the Corinthians produced a sorrow in the believers that led them to repent of their sins (2 Corinthians 7:9). "Repentance" refers to the desire to turn from sin and restore one's relationship to God. "Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation" (v.10). "Godly sorrow" refers to sorrow that is according to the will of God and produced by the...

Becoming Poor, For Others to Become Rich

Walk with Jesus

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.2 Corinthians 8:9 So simple... yet why do I have such a hard time living this out. Giving when it hurts... when it really cost me something is so hard for me. My rights, my pride, my recognition, my hard work, m...

Reconciliation - Thankfully.....

Word of the Day

Boy, this week all my favorite verses are coming up. I don't think it is a coincidence that is happening during my blog week. God has always been so good at giving me thought material! If you are reading along with the church outline this year, you just read 2 Corinthians chapter 5 today. Two parts always jump out to me and I'm so thankful for them time and time again. ...

The Man and His Wife Were Both Naked and Felt... Shame?

Word of the Day

Well I first must confess that I am not on the same reading plan as the rest of our church is on, so I do apologize that these posts probably won't be from the same passages you are in. This morning God used Genesis 3:7 to convict me of some specific "guilt" and remind me that in Him there is no condemnation. (Romans 8:1) Genesis 3:7-87 Then the eyes of both of them were...

WWJ(efferson)D?…

Walk with Jesus

Some in America would say that President Jefferson is a complete deist, others may say that he is more of a spiritualist, and yet again some may even suggest that he was a follower of Christ. Ultimately, I am not sure that I am prepared to say that any of the above is, in totality – TRUE. Few can argue the fact that President Jefferson did produce what is today know...

Word of the Day: 2 Corinthians 2:15-16

Walk with Jesus

2 Corinthians 2:15-16 As Cathi and I are going through the study of Real Marriage with our community group we were challenged with coming up with a family vision or mission statement. Cathi and I prayed for a week seeking the Lord on what would be become our verse we could use to reflect that vision or mission. We came across 2 Corinthians 2:15-16. 15 For we are a fragra...

Birthing Hips

Word of the Day

Usually giving birth is thought of as a good thing with a few notable exceptions (remember that Bill Cosby episode where he dreamed he was giving birth to a giant sub sandwich?). One of those exceptions is listed in James 1 when it talks about giving birth to sin. James 1:14-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed...

Desperation

Word of the Day

Often Pastor Skip makes a joke about one of his sons "suffering for Jesus" in Hawaii, the joke obviously being ironic to use the words Hawaii and suffering in the same sentence. The same can be said for any of us who live here in America compared to almost every other country. The question I have is would I really be willing to suffer for Jesus? The Church that I grew up ...

Word of the Day: 2 Corinthians 7:9-11

Word of the Day

2 Corinthians 7:9-11 Like I said yesterday God seems to bring the right Scripture to me when I need it. In these verses Paul is talking about true repentance and what true repentance looks like and where it is driven from. I find myself many times saying will you forgive me but is this just because I know we are to seek forgiveness. Is it truly repentance as Paul describe...

Word of the Day: 2 Corinthians 4:1-6

Word of the Day

2 Corinthians 4:1-6 What an incredible passage to start the new month with for me personally. I am getting ready to start a new recruit class October 3. This means I will be working with 7 new recruit training officers and 44 recruits for the next 13 weeks. My prayer will be that they will see the light of Jesus through me as I have a great opportunity to lead and serve t...
