By Bill Ehlers on July 22, 2018

There is a healthy guilt. The guilt that stings your conscience when you have done something wrong and caused pain. God intends us to feel guilty when we sin. God also provided the way to be cleansed from our sins and to have our guilt taken away, not just in the legal sense, but also in our personal feelings. Jesus...

Highest Honour: Honouring the Love

By Brad Quiring on May 20, 2018

Love stands out in most people's minds when they think of marriage. The image is usually rose-coloured romanticism but not real love. Romantic love definitely has its place in marriage, but the real love that God commands reflects the attitude of Jesus Christ. Marriage is the place where the husband and wife exercise true agape love for one another, sacrificially...

Ignite!: The Gospel is All About God

By Brad Quiring on April 22, 2018

"The Gospel is all About God" Acts 14:8-20. In their next stop of Lystra, Paul, Barnabas and their companions were given the opportunity to show the power of God and present the gospel.

The Cross: My Cost from Christ’s Cross

By Brad Quiring on March 25, 2018

The cross was very costly for Jesus. It cost Him His life. It was costly for God the Father, as it cost Him His son. But all this was done out of love for us. What will our response be? Do we live for ourselves and today, or do we live for Someone who is so much higher and greater?...

The Cross: The Glory of the Shameful Cross

By Brad Quiring on March 11, 2018

The message of the cross, of Jesus’ substitutionary death, is the primary message. God turned the shame and curse of the cross into His glory and our salvation. This is what we proudly proclaim: The Gospel of Jesus is simple: Jesus died on the cross for our sins. That is all we have to announce. Hebrews 12:1-3; 1 Corinthians 1:17-18

Commitment: Commitment to Peace

By Brad Quiring on February 11, 2018

Romans 12:17-21. Jesus came to bring peace. Peace between people and God and peace between people. Since Adam and Eve's fall, conflict and unhealthy, unhelpful competition has existed between people. God sent Jesus to bring His peace to those who believe in Christ. This peace is not just the absence of conflict, "agreeing to disagree" or "let's just all get...

The Arrival: Arrival of Love

By Brad Quiring on December 17, 2017

The modern definition of love is either extremely shallow and self-seeking or is set up as something that is so idealized it can never be attained. The reality is that love is something others’ focused and has been demonstrated by God’s gift to the world: Jesus. Love arrived at Christmas.

The Arrival: Arrival of Joy

By Brad Quiring on December 10, 2017

There are very few things that thrill someone than to hear a child laugh out loud in pure joy! We all wish we could live with secure, confident, worry-free joy.

The Arrival: Arrival of Peace

By Brad Quiring on December 3, 2017

Is peace merely the absence of conflict or is it something deeper? We seek peace on an international level and on the family level. We are even seeking peace within ourselves.
