Acts 9

July 17, 2024

Restore: to bring back to or put back into a former or original state. There might not be a greater truth than God’s ability to restore. It goes further than forgiveness by renewing what was lost or broken. Joel 2 does a prophetic dive into the miraculous work of restoration.

Acts 8

July 10, 2024

Hosea the prophet’s life and marriage to Gomer the prostitute is both moving and mysterious. There is no happily ever after. Instead we are left to consider how we treat God and if we will be a faithful covenant partner to Him.

Acts 7

July 3, 2024

The less stable the outside environment the more important it is to have internal stabilization. Paul gives us in this text three practices that, if put into action, can act as internal stabilizers that will help us weather any storm, turbulence, and difficulty.

Acts 6

June 26, 2024

Nahum is the sequel to Jonah. The Ninevites have repented of their repentance and have become a national bully. God’s longsuffering runs out and in its place is God’s wrath. Nahum forces us to wrestle with how to respond to God’s anger.
Everyone knows the story of Jonah and the whale. However, most of our mental pictures are from Veggie Tales and distort the incredible message of this prophet. Jonah isn’t about Nineveh, whales or dying plants; it is a mirror for the reader’s heart.

Acts 5

June 12, 2024

Ezekiel is one of the most colorful prophets. His actions, words, and visions are both mysterious and marvelous. Chapter one set the tone for the entire book. It is a shock to Ezekiel and a comfort for every person that feels exiled.

Acts 4

June 5, 2024

When life gets dark can Christians ask why? We looked at three of God’s prophetic voices – Habakkuk, Job and Jeremiah – to learn how to wrestle well in the dark night of the soul.

Acts 3

May 29, 2024

Daniel’s life is exemplary. He demonstrates how to live in the worst biblical city. He not only endures the attacks but his life changes the city of Babylon. We get wisdom on how to endure our own attacks that come at our bodies, minds, and spirits.

Acts 2

Acts 1

May 15, 2024

The final chapter of Colossians is personal and practical. Paul names his own Kingdom Team. It begins with Jesus as captain and then includes Jews, Gentiles, males, females, superstars, doctors, felons, and one quitter. The big idea is there’s room for anyone on Team Jesus.

Colossians 3 is all about getting the Kingdom into our lives while pushing out the corrupt culture. The longest practical application is not to marriage or parenting but to our jobs as bosses or bondservants. How we work is one of the greatest ways we demonstrate that our lives are lived for a different kingdom and our priorities are set by a better King.
