God said what?! - Part One

We took our first brief excursion into the hidden underbelly of Scripture last time. Now, it’s time to go deeper down this murky path. This is going to be a longer, much more arduous trip, so make sure you bring plenty of water and good batteries for your flashlight! 1,175 more words

Defining Worship 18

Worship is the natural expression of faith.

Worship is essentially a dialogical activity in which we stand over against God even when we draw near to Him, distinguishing His transcendent nature from ourselves, while relating ourselves appropriately to His holiness and majesty and responding thankfully to the mercy He extends towards us. 16 more words

What's Our Kids' Ministry Looking At?

To be in Christ is the only thing that really matters. Before we knew Him, we were spiritually empty, trying to fill the void with material things; but they could never satisfy. What our soul needed was spiritual food which is found only in Jesus. All the blessings and gifts that we receive for God reminds us just how wonderful it is to be with the Lord. Even if I received nothing from God, being with Him alone is enough to give me joy. The more I am in commune with the Almighty, the fuller my soul becomes. Yet there something wonderful to consider. While we are made full spiritually, we are never completely satisfied. That means I must spend my days communing with the Almighty lest my soul starves. Personally, I see nothing wrong with that.
