John 4:27-42 Sharing Your Faith  When someone wants to introduce their faith to someone, there are generally two different approaches. The first approach is the “invitation” approach.

Ephesians 4:1-4 Sharing the Power of Hope I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 Announcing Jesus As we gather here together in a new place and a new time, I want to ask you a question? How do you announce your loyalty to someone?

1 Timothy 1:12-17 Preparing for a Spiritual Birthday Does God place a special meaning in our birthdays? I tried to look up the word “birthday” in the Bible. Here are the two references to birthday: Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants. Then he restored the chief… Read more

Watchamacallit So when the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, “This is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat. (Exodus 16:15 NKJV) I have found the heavenly “manna” that the Israelites used in the wilderness.

Joshua 2:1-24 The Scarlet Risk You have probably heard of the expression: “You could go out on a limb.” To put yourself in a risky position in order to help another person is to go “out on a limb” for them.
