It is a Christian proverb. “Out of the mouth of babes. . .Thou hast prepared praise for Thyself” (Matthew 21, Jesus quoting Psalm 8) It is a principle that guides our celebration of this season and our priorities for the rest of the year. The deep commitment of the Christian faith is to lead children to know [...]
It shocks us to think it, but at the time Jesus was born, His family had no place to stay. When labor pains started, the best they could do was to seek shelter in a stable.
Day 16 – Will you pray for the homeless?
Later in the Savior’s life, it will be true again. ”The Son of [...]
Christmas celebrates the coming of Christ. The invasion of the visible world by the invisible. “We interrupt this broadcast!” For a specific purpose, says the Bible. “I have come that they might have LIFE and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) Think about it. Apart from this result (people born into supernatural LIFE rather than just [...]
It is the strategy of our enemy–to divide the people of God. And one of the easiest fault- lines is the “generation gap”. Sometimes it is about worship style. Always it is about relationship and trust.
Day 10. Will you pray for young adults in the FBC family?
(Yesterday we prayed for Senior Adults)
Their participation is vital to the success [...]
As FBC begins our celebration of the Christmas season (tomorrow is the first Sunday in Advent), I hope you will remember the story of Simeon. (Luke 2) An old man. He has waited for years for “the consolation of Israel”. Trusting a promise from God that he would not die before He saw the Christ, Simeon came into the temple just [...]
However you imagine the balance between sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man, whether Calvinist or Armenian, one thing is certain. Prayer is powerful with God, powerful in the salvation of those who separated from God and empty of eternal LIFE.
Day 4 – Will you pray for People to be saved?
“My heart’s desire and my [...]
People who pray (thank you for being one of this number) must face sin. Must understand it. Must appreciate the non-negotiable position of a holy God toward it. Christianity is not soft. It does not allow spiritual avoidance.
Day 3 –Will you pray toward repentance and renewal?
Three times when the Lord was teaching us to pray He [...]
We have begun a 40 day journey together. Hundreds of us. Focusing our prayers. Asking God with united voice. Welcome to these days. I believe God will bless us.
Day 2 – Will you pray for your Pastor(s)?
He has no small task. To speak God’s word. To guide God’s people. Leading a church, developing a staff, [...]
Normal Christian behavior! It is ignored by many, but still God’s plan for the church. “My house shall be called a house of prayer.” Will you join me? Starting this morning, and ending on New Year’s Day, hundreds of members and friends of FBC will unite our prayers. 40 days of “agreeing together”.
Day 1 – Will you [...]
Re: Verse reading–2 Peter 1:16-21; 2:1-3; 3:1-18 (day one)
“We were eyewitnesses of His majesty. . .we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it” (v 2:16,19) Peter believes that a vision of the glory and coming of Christ is necessary for every believer. “For the JOY set [...]
