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...

Indispensable: Gospel

By Brad Quiring on September 30, 2018

We cannot be saved on our own. We need Jesus. How do we know this? We have a message: the Gospel, which means, literally, the Good News. We need this Good News in order to be saved from our sins and from God's punishment. We also need to proclaim this message to others.

Indispensable: Church

By Brad Quiring on September 16, 2018

Jesus is the builder and head of The Church as well as our local churches around the world throughout history. Church is a family and a place.

Elisha: God’s Power Prophet: Dive In

By Brad Quiring on August 26, 2018

Many of Elisha’s miracles were done by him directly. God used Elisha’s words and touch to reveal His divine power. In the case of a foreign army commander afflicted with leprosy, Elisha didn’t even bother to meet him, he just sent him down to the muddy Jordan river and told him to dive in…seven times. Wouldn...

Elisha: God’s Power Prophet: Baldness, Bad Boys and Bears

By Brad Quiring on July 15, 2018

In one of the most controversial stories of the Bible, one might accuse Elisha of overreacting out of his vanity. But, look at the whole story and you’ll see a deep-rooted disrespect not for Elisha, but for God and His Gospel. The whole nation of Israel was a moral and ethical disaster, and the time for a cleanup had...

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...

Elisha: God’s Power Prophet: Double Spirit

By Brad Quiring on July 1, 2018

By Brad Quiring on May 27, 2018

Marriage is to be held in highest honour by everyone, whether they are married or not. Before marriage, God expects and helps us to be sexually pure and to honour one another in love. Within marriage God also expects couples to be sexually pure, faithful and honouring one another in love. This is part of being faithful to one another....

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...

Highest Honour: Honouring One Another

By Brad Quiring on May 13, 2018

God created marriage for two to become one. A man and a woman, two distinct people, both created in the image of God, brought together by God to become one. From the beginning, God said it was not good for man to be alone, so he worked his creation miracle to ensure that "alone" was not part of his original...

Ignite!: The Power of God in the Gospel

By Brad Quiring on April 15, 2018

The Power of God in the Gospel. Acts 14:1-20. The Gospel of Jesus isn't just a feel-good message to bring people some sense of hope. The very power of God is behind everything. This power moved history to the point of Jesus' dying for our sins, this power raised Jesus from the dead, this power destroys the authority of sin...

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...

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...
