I AM: I AM the Resurrection and the Life

By Brad Quiring on March 15, 2020

He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11:25-26) Jesus spoke these powerful declarations to a heartbroken sister whose brother had just died. She told Jesus that if He had been there, her...

I AM: I AM the Good Shepherd

By Brad Quiring on March 8, 2020

John 10:11-18 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11) Sheep and shepherds were commonly known and understood concepts in Jesus’s culture (which is probably why Jesus chose this metaphor). Just like our dog or cat knows our voice, sheep know their shepherd’s voice (John 10:3-5). Sheep want safety, pasture,...

The Holy Spirit Keeps Us On Track

By Brad Quiring on January 26, 2020

Grace and Mercy come from God, we still battle with sin and yet, God, in his grace and mercy, comes to us personally and eternally to keep us on track. Galatians 5:16-25 tells us how to "walk in the Spirit", which means we are to completely surrender and submit to God's way in our lives. Walking in the Spirit is...

The Great Christmas Light: From Dark Minds to Bright Thinking

By Brad Quiring on December 22, 2019

From darkness in our thinking to clarity about the truth of Jesus. Every person is unclear about Jesus, the Bible, The Holy Spirit and God. We are constantly unsure of right and wrong, good and evil. Some live as if ignorance is bliss while others spin their mental wheels trying to figure it all out. This darkness in our thinking...

Take a Sabbath

By Brad Quiring on September 1, 2019

When God had finished his creation work, he "took a Sabbath" from his work. When God put together the covenant with his people, Israel, he commanded them to "take a Sabbath" from their labours. When Jesus was on the earth, he told people to come to him, and he would give them "Sabbath". The Sabbath, like everything in the Law,...

The Most Wondrous, Amazing (Slightly Strange) Show on Earth: Sleeping in Church

By Brad Quiring on August 25, 2019

The Power of God to Raise the Dead - Acts 20, 1 Corinthians 15. People have been falling asleep in church for centuries. It's most likely the preacher's fault. Even Paul's sermons dropped on poor young man not just into dreamland, but out of a third story window. What could have been a horrific tragedy, turned into another revelation of God's great power...

Share: In Their Language

By Brad Quiring on June 16, 2019

We have the command from Jesus to share our faith. Most Christians really do want to share their faith. Our modern culture, though, has drifted so far from the true God, from church and the Bible that we cannot assume they know what we are talking about when we share our faith. We have to take the time and have...

Toll Road: Lose Your Life to Save It

By Brad Quiring on May 26, 2019

Salvation is free, but there is a cost to follow Jesus as His disciple. Our life is that: OURS. It is not to be ours as it was purchased by Jesus' own life to save us from our sins and the eternal punishment we deserve for being sinners. Our desire for preserving our comfort and doing our own thing only...

Messed Up: Life

By Brad Quiring on April 7, 2019

Life is sacred. God created all people in His image and is the one who determines life and death. God loves all people and it is his desire that all come to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. For this reason, we hold life as sacred. Not because we love babies and seniors, but because God made life sacred. We...

Indispensable: God

By Brad Quiring on October 7, 2018

Indispensable God. We need God. Period. Without God, we have no life, no blessings, no hope, no existence at all. God is real and he is the One who defines all things in this universe. So many us live as if we don't believe that we need God for everything. A refining of our faith will then manifest itself in...

Elisha: God’s Power Prophet: Productive

By Brad Quiring on July 8, 2018

The land, like life, can be unproductive. In fact, under certain conditions, death is the only outcome. The people of Jericho and surrounding area were in the midst of a water crisis. Their water was unsafe for consumption and agricultural production. God used Elisha not only to rescue them, but we see a greater lesson unfolding of God taking that...

The Cross: Resurrection Sunday: The Empty Cross and Grave

By Brad Quiring on April 1, 2018

1 Corinthians 15:12-28. Jesus died on the cross. He was buried. Had he stayed in the grave, he would be no better or different than any other human. But Jesus rose again from the dead. Both the cross and the grave are empty because Jesus is alive. Because Jesus is alive, we are alive, too, through faith in the fact of...

By Brad Quiring on March 18, 2018

Jesus died for us to take away our sin nature and our sinful lifestyle. His death didn’t just take sin away, it gave us new life, a new self, a new being and a new purpose in life. We died with Christ so that we could become new. Galatians 2:19-21; Romans 6:1-14.
