The Afterlife

What happens when we die? Sunday mornings we are exploring the realities surrounding the afterlife. A scary topic for some, time and again Jesus Christ expressed a calming assurance when it came to end of this life for those who were His. What happens when we die? Can we really know? Is Heaven a real place? What about

Love, Day 7 - December 24

Please read Psalm 33:22 We recently adopted the neighborhood stray. He was little, tough, feisty and had a really bad habit of chasing the neighbors and the UPS truck. While a few dog-loving neighbors thought he was cute, most considered him a nuisance, but we fell in love with the little guy. When we left

Love, Day 6 - December 23

Please read 1 John 5:11. God the Father showed us the ‘Greatest Love’ through the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a believer this gives us the promise and joy of eternal life. Through this simple truth guided by the power of the Holy Spirit, we have the assistance to love as we

Christmas

Please pray for everyone to have a good Christmas and for the people that don’t normally get love to receive love this Christmas. And that people won’t miss the real meaning of Christmas

Love, Day 5 - December 22

Take the time to read aloud Exodus 15:11-13. Music has always spoken to my family. When we can’t find the words to say, God will often bring a song to mind. It’s a universal language even in our own home, and it’s not uncommon for us to break into song at any given moment. So
Read More

Love, Day 4 - December 21

Read through Romans 5:8-10. Can you tell someone you love them, but not show it through your actions? Can you love someone and never say a word, but make your love known through your deeds? In life, we often see one person claim to love another yet hurt them physically or emotionally over and over

Love, Day 3 - December 20

Take the time to read through Psalm 89:1-4 I wasn’t alive during the war to end all wars, or the war that came after that one. I wasn’t alive during the Great Depression. Those were hard times for those who lived through them. People who lived through the Depression carry with them the habits and

Love, Day 2 - December 19

Read aloud Joshua 22:5. It was over! No more war. Under Joshua’s leadership, the Canaanites had been defeated. The Promised Land now belonged to Israel. God had given His people rest. As the people began the process of settling the land, Joshua had some final words for them. He reminded them of the commandment to

Love, Day 1 - December 18

Open up to John 3:16-17 and take a few moments to read these verses out loud. How do you define or explain love? There have been millions of songs written about love. It is the central theme in millions of movies and books, yet it looks different to each and every one of us. Christmas

Joy, Day 7 - December 17

Please read aloud Luke 1:39-45. Every year our family gathers in our home for a Christmas celebration. Children and grandchildren travel from out of state for this wonderful time together. For weeks before the gathering, Christmas lists are shared via email, decorations begin to fill the house, lights are strung outside, and gifts are purchased.

Joy, Day 6 - December 16

Please take the time to read Luke 2:8-12. In the war of good versus evil, evil occupied the world. I imagine these angels as part of the Holy propaganda films. The angels had probably been rehearsing delivering this message since before the beginning of time, just waiting for the invasion to whip up the morale

Joy, Day 5 - December 15

Please open up God’s Word and read through Luke 1:46-49. In this passage, Mary is telling Elizabeth about the joy she is feeling because the Lord has told her that she is pregnant with Jesus. Despite the difficulty that Mary knows she will face due to not being married to Joseph yet, Mary is able

Joy, Day 4 - December 14

Open up God’s Word and read through Isaiah 52:7-9. Have you ever experienced overwhelming joy that caused you to “burst into songs?” When Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4, we see this type of joy exemplified. A woman steeped in immorality came to the well at a time when no

Joy, Day 3 - December 13

Take some time to read Jeremiah 23:5. The prophet Jeremiah received these words from God and had the joyful privilege of delivering them to God’s people. It was during a time when other spiritual leaders were false prophets, telling the people what they wanted to hear rather than what God was actually saying, and because

Joy, Day 2 - December 12

Please take some time to read aloud Isaiah 53:5-6. Do you have that person on your Christmas list that you just don’t know what gift to buy them? You know the one—the person where you save the receipt because you know there is a good chance they will be taking it back. If only you

Joy, Day 1 - December 11

Take some time to read 1 Chronicles 16:9-11. Don’t you love Christmas carols? “Joy to the world the Lord has come.” “O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.“ Singing “Silent Night” at the Christmas Eve service with the sanctuary warm with the glow of candles is certainly a special Christmas memory. Oh how

Peace, Day 7 - December 10

Please read through Romans 15:13. When our boys grew up and started going off to college, one of the things we missed most was locking the front door at night and feeling the supreme sense of peace that came from knowing all our children were under our roof, safely upstairs asleep in their beds. Peace

Peace, Day 6 - December 9

Please read Isaiah 9:6-7. We will only find peace when we fully surrender to Jesus, our “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” God’s wise counsel is always available to us. Too often, we don’t heed His wise counsel until we’re in a desperate situation. Eventually, our refusal to relinquish control leads to

Peace, Day 5 - December 8

Please take some time to read through Psalm 29:1-11. This Old Testament Hebraic hymn proclaims the glory and strength of the Lord. These verses vividly describe His control of the earth and all that dwells on it. In a world that seems to us to grow crazier and further away from God at every turn

Peace, Day 4 - December 7

Open up God’s Word and read aloud Matthew 11:28-30. A few months ago, we brought a whirling dervish into our home and named her Bitsy. When we first laid eyes on her sweet puppy face at the animal shelter, little did we realize these two not-so-young humans would soon be trying to keep pace with

Peace, Day 3 - December 6

Please read Isaiah 26:3. What is peace? Read again what the prophet Isaiah said about it. I woke up one morning 4 years ago and looked over at Rachel and fearfully said to her, “I think God is calling me to something different than pursuing professional basketball.” To come to her and say that I

Peace, Day 2 - December 5

Open up God’s Word and read John 14:27. In this passage, Jesus is speaking to His disciples about peace, but it is not the type of peace they might have imagined. He wasn’t talking about momentary contentment, or a pause in a world usually torn by war or conflict. His followers knew from experience that

Peace, Day 1 - December 4

Please take the time to read through Luke 1:30-35. The concept of peace can be defined several ways. The word peace can mean “freedom from disturbance” or can be defined as “quiet and tranquility.” Our household includes four children ages five and younger, so it is safe to say that peaceful does not come to

Hope, Day 7 - December 3

Open up God’s Word and read Zechariah 9:9. About eighteen months ago our family moved from a perfectly good house in a groomed neighborhood to an old home in the heart of Trussville that needed lots of TLC. A project for sure. While our whole crew was excited for the task, I don’t think we

Hope, Day 6 - December 2

Read through Luke 2:25-35. Simeon experienced hope in knowing he would see the “consolation of Israel,” the Christ, before he died. He saw the “light of our salvation.” Hope is a small word, but it is one of the most powerful. Why? Because in hope lies the power of the soul to turn to God
Read More

Hope, Day 5 - December 1

Open up to read through Genesis 3:8-15. What could be a more beautiful picture of hope for mankind than the birth of Jesus? Our Redeemer, who took on human form, was born in the most humble of circumstances. A stable suitable for animals seems very unsuitable for the Messiah. In our passage in Genesis, we

Hope Day 4 - November 30

Take some time to read Jeremiah 31:31. A covenant is a promise or a mutually binding agreement between two or more people. God made these promises with His people all throughout the Old Testament: With Noah, God made a promise to never again flood the earth. With Abraham, the promise was that he would one

Hope Day 3 - November 29

Take some time to read through John 1:1-5. How incredibly awesome it is to know that Jesus, who is the Word, is eternal. He was with God at creation, and therefore everything belongs to Him! He is sovereign, all-powerful, all-knowing, and completely in control of this universe. That gives me so much hope! Not only

Hope Day 2 - November 28

Open up to Isaiah 40:1-5 and read aloud God’s Word. When you think of hope, what comes to your mind? I think of something to look forward to—a reason to go on…to live. These verses in Isaiah show us that God wants us to be comforted. He wants us to know that our sins are
