Mike Yoder—May 20
God blesses those He chooses, often in spite of themselves and their circumstances, because He is faithful to his promises. Will we give credit and thanks to whom it is due?
Mike Yoder—May 13
Tension and heartache come to those who devise their own way, even to those who’ve received promises. But God is the maestro at preserving his master plan in spite of our messes, and that gives us hope.
Mike Yoder—May 6
When you encounter the real God, it leaves an indelible impression. God is faithful to fickle, feckless people.
Jim Custer—April 29
In the midst of widespread dysfunction, God—the Blesser and controlling Creator—still works to bring about His intended destiny.
Mike Yoder—April 22
If God is for you, no one can be successfully against you…including you.
Mike Yoder—April 15
The world teaches us to want to “have it our way.” Be careful what you wish for.
Beau Stanley—April 8
Don’t follow your heart. Embrace your role.

Once the truth of the resurrection comes out, your verdict must come in.
Will you devise an explanation, or will you declare a Savior?
Mike Yoder—March 25
He who trusts the Son alone has life. Do you?

When we share the Gospel as a group of people at the same time, we call this “fishing with a net.” When we share as a group, there are synergies that multiply the impact of the witness.

Do you remember as a kid coming home and asking what’s for dinner? Based on the answer, there was probably a groan or a cheer. Maybe your kids or spouse ask the same question.

Next year when Saint Patrick’s Day comes around, you might be excited about the holiday or you might not be enthused about all that accompanies it in here the States (I’m told it’s much more solemn in Ireland). You might not even have a drop of Irish blood.

The tattered, filthy, stinky man
Slumps against the dumpster.
His eyes are glazing, glassy, and
His hair is mussed and knotted.
Dan Green—March 5
Sometimes I’ve thought that if I had been a part of the early Church and personally heard the teaching of the Apostles, then I would be a better witness than I am today.
Dustin Speaks—March 2
Recently I’ve been disturbed by a trend I see in American church culture. Basically, we tend to relegate discipleship to the classroom, hoping that people who get the right kind of information will begin to live the right kind of lives.
Gary Webb—February 26
Have you ever felt like your life was a little like the Warner Brothers’ Roadrunner cartoon of the 60s and 70s? Unfortunately, your character is not the roadrunner, who miraculously escapes every peril. Instead, yours is that of the coyote.
Beau Stanley—February 23
Is it possible that we might lack zeal not because we’ve made too much of grace but because we’ve made too little of it?
Mike Yoder—February 21
Few people doubt that its message from Jesus and its historicity match what we find elsewhere in the Bible. But many people doubt whether it belongs as holy Scripture in this part of John, in the Gospels, and indeed in the Bible itself.
Zac Hess—February 19
My kids were essentially sick for the entire month of January. I cleaned up more vomit in that month than I have in a lifetime, and it’s a miracle our son didn’t end up in the hospital due to dehydration.
