How to Development Contentment in My Life Philippians 4:10-23 A thermometer doesn’t change anything around it—it just registers the temperature. It’s always going up and down. But a thermostat regulates the surroundings and changes them when they need to be changed.

The law is not against such things.” (Galatians 5:22–23, CSB) Our focus today is on love, which is preached about in a lot in churches.

5 Things Every Evangelist Needs 1. Every evangelist needs to be called by God “And he himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers,” (Ephesians 4:11, CSB) Just as God has not called all men to be pastors, neither has He called all to be evangelists. The Bible says “some evangelists” and “some pastors.” The pastor and evangelist are two different callings and different gifts. Billy Graham said: “The evangelist’s message is a very… Read more

To shout WOW! after an acrobatic catch in the end zone is not only natural, but necessary to fully enjoy the spectacular play. If you do not believe that it is necessary, the next time you watch a football game… Read more
