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...

Matthew 16:24-25 (NIV2011) "Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

Messed Up: Identity

By Brad Quiring on April 14, 2019

Sin has stripped away the confidence we have in who we are, right down to the very basic: am I male or female? What race am I? What is my "orientation"? In fact, our culture has so embraced these questions that people are left wondering what "normal" looks like. God created all life. He created all people in His wonderful...

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...

Messed Up: Justice

By Brad Quiring on March 31, 2019

Psalm 37:1-16. We want what is right, true and just. But it doesn’t happen in our world. Life is not fair because of sin in the world, which gives birth to evil actions. The true follower of Christ is marked by their faith in God and righteous behaviour, especially toward others, because that is what God desires.

Messed Up: Morals

By Brad Quiring on March 24, 2019

Relativism chooses every turn, every pace, every street, according to its own autonomous preferences, and submits to no truth. God's Word, the Bible, calls followers of Jesus to a much higher standard: the standard of Truth. Truth based on what God has established from a loving and wise heart and mind.

Messed Up: Gods

By Brad Quiring on March 17, 2019

Messed Up Gods – A Mess of Religion. On the surface, most religions look the same, but the difference is at the very heart and core of the belief system. How do we show truth in an age of pluralism? If Christ is the Only Way, what about everyone else? See how we've created a mess for ourselves by creating gods...

He Dwelt Among Us: He Spoke to Us

By Brad Quiring on December 16, 2018

God has spoken to us and revealed himself to us in many ways. But the greatest way is by Jesus coming to this earth. The Law and the Prophets were but a shadow of that which is to come, and Jesus Christ is the reality that these symbols pointed to. Jesus confirms everything in the Bible as He is the...
