You’re Only Hurting You
by Ed Newton on December 28th, 2022
“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.” - Proverbs 10:12 Are you struggling to forgive? We have talked over the last couple of days about forgiveness. If you are a believer who has spent any serious amount of time in the Word, you already know what the Bible says about forgiveness. You say, “But pastor, you don’t know what they did to me.” You are right, I don’t. And you know wha...

“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” - 1 John 4:10 Over the last few days, we have gone into detail about how Jesus is most definitely real. The Bible along with our own personal relationships with Him make this very easy to believe. If you haven’t developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, then you might ...
Fear of The Unknown
by Ed Newton on December 9th, 2022
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.” - Romans 8:28 Has God given you clarity in your life? Has He made it clear what you need to be doing and what path you should be pursuing? You might say, “Yes Pastor, God has made it clear but...” And that is where the fear comes in. We can get so creativ...
Take it to Them
by Ministry Support on November 6th, 2022
“When one of you has a dispute with another believer, how dare you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter instead of taking it to other believers. Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves?” - 1 Corinthians 6:1-2 When you find yourself in an argument ...

“And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” - Mark 12:30 Over the last couple of days, we have talked about obedience. If you want to honor God and live your life for Him, it all starts with obedience. You say, “Okay pastor, I am all in. I want to follow God, I want to obey Him fully and carefully, just as you have said. But now ...

“This is why I speak to them in parables: ‘Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.” - Matthew 13:13 Over the last few days, we have been pushing you to share what Jesus has put on your heart. And I do not want to stop today because this is such an important topic of conversation. As a believer, Jesus designed you for a specific purpose. As a HUMAN, Jesus d...
Not For Everybody
by Ed Newton on September 13th, 2022
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” - John 15:18-19 As we continue to look at this idea of a “prophet,” you must understand something. Remember, you do not have to prophesy something out of the b...
You Need Him… You Know That Right?
by Ed Newton on September 2nd, 2022
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” - Proverbs 3:5-6 If you want to live your best life and not the “YOLO, I’m just having a good time” type of life, then you need God. Specifically, you need to follow His plan. We call this “God’s will.” His will is what He desires to happen. We...
Are You Sincere?
by Ed Newton on August 22nd, 2022
“But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.” - Matthew 5:37 When you hear the word “sincere,” what do you think of? Who do you think of? The Bible talks about Timothy having a “sincere faith.” It was actually Paul who said this, as Timothy’s faith reminded Paul of Timothy’s mother and grandmother. See, the Apostle Paul took three missionar...
A Spirit of Love
by Ed Newton on August 20th, 2022
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” - 2 Timothy 1:7 As we continue to look at 2 Timothy 1:7, we now know that it is not God who has given us a spirit of fear. Instead, He gives us a spirit of POWER, LOVE, and SELF-DISCIPLINE. Yesterday, we looked at the spirit of power that we can claim as His children. Today, we look at another gi...
Chasing After You
by Ministry Support on March 20th, 2022
“One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, ‘Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.” (Revelation 17:1-2)Revelation 17 tells the story of a prostitute. Not a specific prostitute, but more of a...
A Deeper Love
by Ministry Support on March 18th, 2022
“Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.” (Revelation 15:7-8)If you have read any of the devotions in this series on Revelatio...
Winning Team... Losing Team!
by Ministry Support on March 13th, 2022
“I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed. And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God.” (Revelation 15:1-2)Have you ever been to...
The Love You Had At First
by Ministry Support on January 18th, 2022
“I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for My name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first”- Revelation 2:2-3 The book of Revelation in...

“…To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father—to Him be the glory and power for ever and ever! Amen” - Revelation 1:5-6 God has made us to be a kingdom and priests. The Doxology not only relays the authority of the Trinity, but also the love of God. When Jesus died to save the world, that could have been t...
An Unwavering Devotion
by Ministry Support on December 15th, 2021
“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21). When God sent Jesus to earth, He came in a humble state. We’ve discussed how Jesus could have been anyone He desired, but He came as a baby and lived with a servant’s heart as a carpenter’s son. So, we see the humility of God manifested in Jesus.So often, people tend to thi...
For Love and Peace
by Ministry Support on December 10th, 2021
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!’” (Luke 2:14). We hear talk of God’s love all the time, but have you ever considered that if God was not a personal, loving God, then there would never have been a Christmas story? There would never have been a reason for Jesus to ...
What is Your Response Time?
by Jared West on November 27th, 2021
“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality” (Romans 12:9-13). During a life-or-death situatio...
The Road to Revival is a Beaten Path
by Jared West on November 8th, 2021
“You have heard it said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:43-4). A man by the name of Michael Sattler, a devoted Anabaptist in the 16th century, was captured by the Roman Catholic authorities and martyred for his faith in Christ Jesus. He told his friends that while he was being burned at the ...
A Season of Harvest

“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitability” (Romans 12: 9-13). If you’ve ever driven past f...
