“Your Kingdom Come”

Jubilee Family, The moonwalking bear is going down! We can gladly say that we are aware of the number 318! 318 is the number of times that the New Testament mentions the second coming. Indeed, the coming of the Lord is the most talked-about doctrine in the New Testament, and by God’s grace, we want That Day […]

“Unkown” Made Known

Paul’s Macedonian call to preach the Gospel brought him not only to Thessalonica but eventually to Athens. It was in Athens where righteous indignation arose in Paul as he passed by idol after idol after idol. Paul chose one of the objects of their worship to teach a valuable lesson. He found an altar with […]

Now We Live

“Now we live if you are standing firm in the faith. (1 Thess 3:8)” What makes you feel alive? What is life-giving to your soul? There are, of course, many legitimate answers to this question. For the last three days, over 2000 pastors and church leaders descended on the convention center for the Bethlehem Conference […]

This is The Way

Eugene Peterson’s book, The Jesus Way, starts with a significant comparison for disciples of Christ. He writes, “This is a conversation on the spirituality of the ways we go about following Jesus, the Way. The ways Jesus goes about loving and saving the world are personal: nothing disembodied, nothing abstract, nothing impersonal. Incarnate, flesh and blood, […]

If You See Something, Say Something

In January alone, there is national science fiction day, spaghetti day, bobblehead day, and fig newton day (unfortunately that day has sadly passed). Do you know what national day September 25th is? September 25th, according to Homeland Security, is National Awareness Day. If […]

Christ’s Return – Motivation for Holiness

Jubilee family, 318. Do you remember what that number referred to from Pastor Toph’s message? It must be important because 318 is a significant number for something to be mentioned over the 27 books of the New Testament. If someone said something to you 318 times, it would make sense for you to pay close attention […]

Remember the Whole Commandment

As a child I remember listening to a story from a far-away land. There was a tree full of fruit, and gathered around it were all the animals, and they were hungry.  But the tree would not release its fruit unless the animals remembered the name of that tree.  The name was held by an […]

The Beauty of Christ

It is the very definition of an understatement to say that we have scratched the surface of how wide, how long, how high and how deep the love of Christ is! The love of Christ surpasses knowledge! The same can be said about the beauty of Christ. How beautiful is Jesus to the eyes of […]

Listen, Learn, Lament and Live

Let me remind you of Pastor John’s helpful application of Ephesians 2:11-22 and add one more ‘L’ to the list. In light of the work of Christ which has killed the hostility between us and God as well as between us and one another, it has reconciled us both vertically and horizontally. We are encouraged […]

Remembering Our Former Condition

As we march our way through Ephesians 2, Paul is not done with calling us to remember our former condition. This past Sunday we recalled our former condition of being spiritually dead and as we dig into 2:11-22 we will see our former condition of not being in a covenant relationship with God just like […]

The Ephesian’s Faith

Why did Paul thank God for the Ephesian’s faith in Christ and their love towards the saints? Pastor Toph mentioned a book by D.A. Carson called Praying With Paul: A Call to Spiritual Reformation which gives us a great answer. He writes,” Because God is sovereign, Paul offers thanksgiving for God’s intervening, sovereign grace in the lives […]

Wonderful God-Centered Prayer

On Sunday we will hear Pastor Toph preach from a passage of Scripture that I encourage you to hide in your heart through memorization. It is prayer that by God’s grace should be found on every believer’s lips both personally and corporately for the body of Christ. Think about what Paul asked the Father to […]
