What Is Our Witness?

“Peter traveled about the country, he went to visit the saints”  Acts 9:32 Our witness is shown to others by the service we do.  They know we are Christians by our love.  How do we express that love to others?  With mercy and grace.  Ka Lamaku.

Growing In God’s Grace

“Be strong in the Grace that is in Christ Jesus”  2 Timothy 2:1 Growing in God’s grace is a lifelong process.  The reward is knowing our Lord and Savior more intimately.  Our education process has mile markers to reveal our progress.  Let’s celebrate these accomplishments as we complete them.  We all are growing from sinner…

Mothers Shape The World

“How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord?”  Acts 5:9 Mothers shape the world far more than we give them credit.  Paul commends Timothy’s mother and grandmother for the scriptual instruction they gave him.  They shaped the life of this first century pastor.  He became a great helper to Paul and others. …

Christian Life

Sharing our life and property and possessions is part of the normal Christian life for the followers of Jesus.  Giving to those in need in the household of faith enhances relationships, since no “payback” was due.  What would it be like if we were able to give without expecting payback?  Perhaps it would be seen…

Building Of The Church

We often worry about our role in the building of the church.  Our role is simple:  We allow God to work in us and through us, and pray for the results.  We are workers who are in a partnership with Jesus in his mission.  May we be Ka Lamaku.  

Hearing The Gospel

Hearing the gospel for the first time does not mean it has not been spoken to us before.  We often need to have multiple voices proclaiming the same message to hear it for the first time.  The spoken word, the written word, and the living word; produces Christ in us, our hope of glory.  Ka…

Sending Jesus To The Cross

Knowing our own part in sending Jesus to the cross can be quite sobering.  We did not drive the nails into His flesh, but our sin drove Him to die for us.  Thank God for His grace and the blessing of new life and salvation.  Free from sin and the guilt and punishment of sin. …

God’s Power Moves In Our Lives

God’s power moves in our lives when we are engaged in prayer with Him.  Joining together in constant prayers will change our lives.  Commit yourself to a time, set aside only for praying and listening to God.  Find a prayer partner that you can share your life with, and pray together.  Remember He is with…

Waiting on God the Father

Waiting on God the Father is rewarded by His grace, His gift.  That gift is the Holy Spirit which will be our helper, our guide, and our comforter.   God is concerned about how our lives are directed and He is willing and able, if we let Him, to be our provider of blessings.  With His…

We Want To See Jesus

The words of the Greek (educated) men in the twelfth chapter of John should be our words as well.  We want to see Jesus.  We desire to see His workings in our lives and in the life of the church.  But it’s not just the followers of Jesus who want to see this, the world…
