Daily Devotional: Listening

“Whoever has ears, let them hear” (Matthew 13:9).

This saying was frequently on our Lord’s lips, and in this instance He is clearly applying it to the parable. Our Lord used this means to rivet the attention of His hearers, and a striking reappearance of the expression appears in the book of Revelation. The Christ who […]

Response Ability – Pastor Bill Vanderbush

Bill talks about our ability to respond to encounters with God, but we are not required to have the “correct” response to continue encountering our Father in heaven.

Daily Devotional: Your Calling

“As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him” (Matthew 9:9).

Matthew loved money. The surest and shortest way to make money in the Galilee of that day was to take sides with Caesar […]

A Note from the Pastor: His authority is Your Authority [1m 15s read time]

One statement that always gets under my skin is, “What will be, will be.” I want to respond, “No! We can pray it into existence, and/or  pray it away.” I wonder when we tack onto our prayers, “If it be God’s will” that this is an “out clause” in case God does not answer […]

Daily Devotional: Turning Point

“And he went outside and wept bitterly” (Luke 22:62).

These words indicate the turning point in the life of Peter, a crisis. This is the crisis and turning point where Peter begins to cross over from a carnal life where Peter was self-willed, self-pleasing and self-confident. Peter loved Jesus but he trusted himself. Then, […]

Worship Moment of the Week: Tethered to His Heart [1m 30s read time]

We’re fast approaching Valentine’s Day, a day we have intentionally set aside for the heart. The problem is, the heart, left to its own devices, can be deceitful. There are so many bible verses set aside for heart matters. God’s word tells us that the condition of our heart is critical to our walk with […]

Daily Devotional: The Highest Dynamic in the Universe

“We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

George MacDonald describes love as what is most precious in the Godhead. He writes that love is “a higher thing than the making of worlds and the things in them.” He says this in exploring the many implications of the first chapter of John: “He existed […]

Daily Devotional: Commitment

“ Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ” (Ephesians1:3).

These opening words of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians give us a summary of the truth of the gospel and also reveal the depth of Paul’s experience in […]

Daily Devotional: My Will vs. Thy Will

Let’s zero in on Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane: The ultimate spiritual battle is my will versus Thy will. We face this same temptation of being seduced into not picking up our cross. “God, can’t we find another way?” Satan was suggesting to Jesus an easier path. You don’t need to die. Or […]
