GUARD YOUR HEART

I turned to this scripture the other day, and though it may be short and simple, I believe it holds such powerful wisdom and truth. God has asked us to guard our hearts, not only because our body is a temple of the Lord, but also because everything we do flows from our heart.

Art in Evangelism

Watching paint dry. An action phrase used to detail exactly how boring a particular thing is. An action phrase used, in fact, to describe how lacking in action a thing can be. It creates some awkwardness for me when I try and describe my work as a live action painter against such an ingrained visual to the average fellow human.

Sound of Silver

When you think of silver what do you think of? 

Perhaps images pop in your head of sitting at the dinner table, the shine of utensils coming from the side of the plate. Or maybe the feel of the silver ring on your hand.

The Comfort of Suffering

If you are anything like me, putting your heart, feelings, and struggles out there for all to see is very difficult. Why would I want to air my dirty laundry? That would be crazy! It’s easier to maintain

Grow in Obedience

We have looked at faith and knowledge as they relate to one another, but obedience is the third corresponding piece. I remembered a children’s song that I learned years ago. It went, “O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E, obedience is the very best way to show that you believe

Grow in Knowledge

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;” – Proverbs 2:6 (ESV)

Christianity, like any other area of life should be full of growth. Growth is not a rush from Point A to Point B; it is full of up’s and down’s, but always there is progression. As your knowledge of the world increases, you grow as a person. Walking through life you learn and through that walk you grow! The same goes for Christianity

Grow in Faith

Billy Graham once said, “The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, 'O God, forgive me,' or 'Help me.'”

As we all know, life is not easy

Father, Forgive Us

Father forgive us.

F – Forgive us for everything we do; for everything we have done and for everything to come.

O – Open our hearts and our eyes to our unworthiness. Often, we feel entitled and forget who we are compared to You, but You are the only one who can make us whole.

R – Remind us that without You, we

Breaking Bricks

Do you ever imagine what it would be like to go back to high school? Well, thanks to Sioux Falls school assemblies last week, we were able to get a glimpse into the lives of our youth! Being a teenager in today’s culture can be rough stuff. As we see society sliding down a slippery slope, our youth get caught in the mist of the madness.

Excitement in the Air

Progress in the Youth Center has come rushing in faster than Spring! What started at a snail’s pace of fresh paint has escalated into new flooring, sound, lighting, staging and a developing game room! It has been a whirlwind of progress; ideas finding shape from the vision that has molded them. Having dreams and visions are one thing, but seeing the image take life right before your very eyes is surreal.

If It Were Easy, Everyone Would Do It

[G]o to [your hometown or city] and speak with my words to them.” Such a direct command. It is easy to throw your heart into foreign missions, but when it comes to confronting people you cross paths with every day, the real challenge begins.

Christians: More Than Casual

As we see it, ‘Casual Christians’ are a big problem in today’s church. We have gotten too comfortable in our daily settings. We see the same people and we have the same conversations, over and over, and over again. We do not venture out; we do not talk to the poor, homeless, or needy in our own communities. We have gotten too comfortable staying in our own Christian bubble.

The Calling of the CROSS

“Christians care about all suffering, especially Eternal Suffering!” – John Piper

Overwhelmed. Overwhelmed and in awe. Your great love has covered me. Your Gospel has smothered me, like the weighted comfort of a blanket. Warm and cozy to the touch. As I free myself of worry, casting my cares on You, I sink down further in Your love.
