The Life God Always Intended


(1 Corinthians 2:9) I believe The Holy Spirit has led me in a slightly different direction this week due to so many family, friends and loved ones that I know personally have been infected with COVID. In particular there are 3 that have passed away that I knew somewhat or fairly well and all of them in different stages of life and all in some way or another have blessed my ministry and me. I pay tribute to three Godly people who have impacted my...

God’s Covenant Design – Pts 1 & 2


(Genesis 1:1) Why is this important?

Wise as Serpents, Gentle as Doves


(Matthew 10:16) We have been spending nearly a year in these posts looking at God's Covenant Order...His salvation and Lordship in our lives; our discipleship response; building every relationship on His Love & Lordship; honoring marriage as the highest of human relationships; family as the foundation of society and building block of Christ's Church; loving and relationally servant-leading our families and then Christ's Church...Now that we're serious about following His Word and making disciples who make disciples in His Covenant Order, He equips us to...
