Completing the Challenge!

Completing the Challenge!

Praise the Lord for all that he has been revealing to us from this wonderful, rich chapter of Scripture! As we have meditated on the truths contained in this chapter we have begun to see that God has done so much for us as believers! He has spoken well of us in the...
Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! The chilly November afternoon was about a week before Thanksgiving. I had just arrived at the Chicago O’Hare Airport. While awaiting my ride to pick me up, I pulled a small New Testament from my pocket and began to read in II Timothy, chapter 3:...
Hear It From the Guys

Hear It From the Guys

So, we asked some guys to tell their story and how Journey fit into that. Do they think it is worth it – practical and beneficial – for guys to go? They already have so much going on trying to figure out life: work, school, girl to marry, family to start,...
Guys’ and Girls’ Journey in Florida

Guys’ and Girls’ Journey in Florida

The Youth Journey in Florida was a great sacrifice for the leaders. Being down south in almost perfect weather, on a lake, with a soft breeze usually blowing, as you can imagine, was very difficult. Now, sarcasm aside. We were a little uncertain about taking the...

Continual Communication

Continual Communication

About the Father’s Business

“Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;” Romans 12:11 If you are like me, you are probably thinking that this verse should be fairly easy to apply to our lives, right? Initially these were some of my thoughts; stay motivated, remove the...
Out With The Old, In With The New!

Out With The Old, In With The New!

[Part II of Romans 12:2] Renew your mind. . . well, in Strongs, the word renew means: a renewal, renovation, complete change for the better. So something is getting overhauled in here! What was it again? Oh yeah, our minds! That’s the place where everything that...
Goal vs. Method: Goal

Goal vs. Method: Goal

Romans 12:2 What an incredible chapter! It’s as if Paul accepted a dare or something “Oh yeah Paul!?! Well! Explain how Christians should live, in 400 words or less!!” (Wish I could be that concise!) He talks about so many things! Humility, serving, giving, loving,...
