Luke 2:46-50 46 Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48 So when they saw Him, they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.” 49 And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?”...

The Power of Prayer

I know, you’ve seen this title a million times before. Rightfully, the power of prayer is a subject that should be frequently covered. I have stated many times myself that prayer is the most powerful, yet most under-used tool that the Christian has. A direct link to the Creator cannot be over looked or understated. What could be a more efficient administrative chain than to have the lowliest of people on the chain have direct access to the one highest? Having this direct link we use it (when we deem necessary, but not nearly frequent enough) with great efficiency and...

[NOTE: This is a legitimate question, and should be asked more often...

We can use your prayers for all that needs to now come together with regards to family getting home from both Germany and Afghanistan. In the mean time, any plans you might have made are out the window when it comes to dealing with family in need. We adjust, we make time, we make sacrifices. Funding is scraped together. Whatever it takes, we work hard to...

Ephesians 4:11-16 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men,...
