Hope // Psalm 130:5

By Mark Jordan | December 3, 2023 |

It’s the first Sunday of Advent. My first encounter with Advent came from the candy-filled Advent calendars my mom would get for us. You know the ones with the chocolates behind a window that you open each day? My birthday is the 9th, so we always arranged which of the three kids would open the…

By Mark Jordan | December 2, 2023 |

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV) For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. It is the first Saturday in December, it marks the first weekend of Advent, and a time when our culture shifts…

God’s Loving Commands // Psalm 119:143

By Mark Jordan | December 1, 2023 |

Welcome to December, my friends! Yesterday we looked at a verse from the beginning of Psalm 119:2 where we looked at the collision between our wants and God’s ways. The big idea is that our joy comes from seeking God’s will, steeping our lives in God’s Word, and walking step-by-step in faith by going God’s…

Live to Give Like Jesus // 2 Corinthians 9:7

By Mark Jordan | November 28, 2023 |

Let’s look at today’s verse in full: “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (NIV). There are a couple components that deserve attention. The first is we are to decide what is in our heart to give.…

Use Your Gifts // 1 Peter 4:10

By Mark Jordan | November 27, 2023 |

Today’s verse gives us a very important reminder: the gifts given by God are not for our benefit, but the benefit of others! This emphasizes the truth of Scripture that it is better to give than receive (Acts 20:35). Sadly, too many people in the world look at their giftedness as though people owe something…

1 John 4:18 (NIV) | There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. Today’s verse is so rich and there is quite a bit to unpack. What jumps out to you initially? For me…

Integrity // Matthew 26:36-44

By Daniel Barron | Jan 31, 2022

Integrity is something that matters to God. It is part of how He designed us to operate. All facets of life go better when we walk in and life with integrity. We cannot always get it right though. The encouraging piece is that God doesn’t leave us for dead when we mess up. He lifts…
