Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 7 – 2 Timothy 1:7-9)


2 Timothy 1:7-9 KJV We wrap up our series on Discovering Hope Through Faith in 2 Timothy 1:7-9. The first thing we read hear is that fear is not from God, and that fear is actually in opposition to us having power, love, and a sound mind. In the Amplified version we read that God didn't give us… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 7 – 2 Timothy 1:7-9)

Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 6 – (Romans 10:17)


Romans 10:17 KJV "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." This is another one of those verses that we kinda know, but don't fully understand. I had the privilege of having the opportunity to be ministered to last night by a powerful man of God...Evangelist Josh Radford. He talked about this… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 6 – (Romans 10:17)

Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 5 – (Philippians 4:11 – 13)


2 Corinthians 11:30-31 NKJV and Philippians 4:11-13 NKJV It's day five of our series on Discovering Hope Through Faith, and we find another one of those verses that's kind of a slogan for Christian's. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." You know by now that I like to take a look at verses like this through the lens… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 5 – (Philippians 4:11 – 13)

Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 4 – (Ephesians 6:16-18)


Romans 1:17 KJV, 2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV and Ephesians 6:16-18 KJV Usually when we do messages on these verses the message is about the "Armor of God"...and of course this is one of those subjects that we should know about. Still today we read that above all of the pieces of armor one stands out...and that's taking up the shield of faith. Why? With it… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 4 – (Ephesians 6:16-18)

Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 3 – (1 Peter 1: 6 – 7)


1 Peter 1:6-7 NKJV Have you ever wondered why our faith is tested, tried, and put through the fire? Come on, I know how it feels to have your faith tried and tested so much you feel like you can't take anymore. But, you know what. I don't know how it happened, but my faith in God is… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 3 – (1 Peter 1: 6 – 7)

Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 2 – (Hebrews 11:1, 39-40)


Hebrews 11:1 KJV and Hebrews 11:39-40 KJV In yesterday's message we talked a little bit about Hebrews 11: 1 which is one of our study scriptures for today. Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. Faith is a substance. In fact, I talked about faith in my personal devotional message on my personal page… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 2 – (Hebrews 11:1, 39-40)

Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 1 – (Philippians 3:12-14)


Philippians 3:12-14 KJV and Hebrews 11:1 KJV Our first message comes from Philippians 3: 12 - 14.  The title of this series is Discovering Hope Through Faith.  So, in order to get to where we want to go...the first thing we need to know about is what faith is. In order to get a definition of faith, please turn with me… Continue reading Discovering Hope Through Faith – Day 1 – (Philippians 3:12-14)

Reconciliation – Day 7 – (2 Corinthians 5:17 – 21)


John 14:6 NKJV and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 NKJV We finish our study on reconciliation where it all began on day one...2 Corinthians 5:17-21. So that means we've now come full circle, and that reconciliation is taught so well here that we need to look at it again. For the purpose of today's study we're actually looking at verses 20 and 21, but… Continue reading Reconciliation – Day 7 – (2 Corinthians 5:17 – 21)

Reconciliation – Day 6 – (Luke 7:1-10)


Luke 7:1-10 KJV For today's message we find ourselves looking at the story about the Centurion's Servant. I have a sense that the centurion's entire household was reconciled to God because of the faith this man had that Jesus could just speak, and the servant was healed. I'd imagine that there are many who are reconciled to… Continue reading Reconciliation – Day 6 – (Luke 7:1-10)

Reconciliation – Day 5 – (Matthew 5:23-24)


So for the first four days of this study we talked about God's side of reconciliation. Pastor Stephen used to say that it's important to teach the God side of things first, and then talk about man's side. Today, we see what man's side in reconciliation is, and what I would like to point out… Continue reading Reconciliation – Day 5 – (Matthew 5:23-24)

Reconciliation – Day 4 – (Romans 5:9 – 11)


Luke 23:39-43 AMP, John 14:6 AMP and Romans 5:9-11 AMP The last few days as we look at Reconciliation we've been stuck laying the foundation that God's not counting our sins against us, and that we are already all reconciled to God. If you're not reconciled to God it's not because it's not available...it's because you haven't received it. We've used the analogy a… Continue reading Reconciliation – Day 4 – (Romans 5:9 – 11)

Reconciliation – Day 3 – (Colossians 1:20-22)


John 14:6 KJV and Colossians 1:20-22 KJV Today we're in Colossians 1:20-22, and again we're going to stay with the Amplified version in order to really get into these verse, and understand what we need to know about reconciliation from them. So...we find that we were once alienated and estranged from God, but those of us that have come to know Jesus as Lord & Savior are holy,… Continue reading Reconciliation – Day 3 – (Colossians 1:20-22)
