Not As They Appear

Posted onNovember 14, 2018 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

I know we can always do a better job of communicating where we believe God is leading us, and we could always do a better job of listening, as well. Our desire is to join God where He is working. I trust that is yours as well. To get where God is working, we often have to let go of things like our will, our wants, our comfort, our plans and our schedules. The soldier must leave his home to defend his country. The farmer must sacrifice his schedule to reap the crop. Both need strength to get the job done. I challenge you to pray for your staff that we will be strengthened and prepared for the challenges we face. ...Keep Reading

Keep Your Eyes Open

We spend a lot of time looking for things. It seems like I’m always looking for a file, a sermon, a book, a passage, or a hospital room. It’s great when you find what you’re looking for, but not so great when you don’t. What’s worse is when you’re looking for the wrong thing....Keep Reading

He Is Able!

Sometimes we overestimate our abilities and the difference we can make in our own strength. However, we have no idea what all God can do, but we see here that He is able to do “far more abundantly beyond what we ask or think.”...Keep Reading

Zip It!

Let no unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but only words that build others up. If we obeyed this little nugget of God’s Word, what would some of us say at the café or the beauty shop or around the dinner table, of course, followed by a proper “bless their heart!” ...Keep Reading

Know Fear, No Peace: Know Peace, No Fear

So many people today are living in fear today when there’s nothing to fear but fear itself. He is watching over you and has a purpose for your life. He loves you. I love how He uses our church to communicate these things today in the lives of our children and the children of the community through Vacation Bible School. Please pray for VBS: our volunteers that serve, the children that come and the parents and grandparents that bring them. Please pray that kids will become believers, that families will come back to visit our services, and that our volunteers will be blessed as they serve....Keep Reading

Real Fellowship

Posted onJune 13, 2018 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

If we follow the example of the early church, we should be as committed to Bible study, fellowship and prayer. Baptists might interpret this to mean double down on the fellowship because the Scripture uses the word “fellowship” and it refers to eating together. However, the word interpreted “fellowship” is koinonia, which means to be a partner and to share a common interest - like unity. ...Keep Reading

You Can Drive

Every one of us come to a time in our lives where we realize we don’t know where we are going, though we can put on a good front. We know in our hearts that there has to be a better way, but sometimes we’re just so stubborn and proud that we endure the frustration and the pain even when we’re introduced to a better way - the Way....Keep Reading

Do The Math

“Seek first the kingdom of God and “all these things” will be added unto you.” Notice the contrast: We serve a God that adds to our lives and face the temptations of an enemy that always subtracts. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10...Keep Reading
