THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES

The Vine and the Branches

15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

5 “I am the vine; you are the…

FAITH AND GRATEFUL HEART

LUK 17:11-19

Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy

11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy[b] met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back,…

Discover Grandparents Greatest Gift

Prayer is the greatest and lasting gift we can give our families. Material things are needed but they are temporary. Our prayers can be lasting and will have a ripple effect to our grandchildren and future generations. 

I found a letter in my family archives written by my great-grandfather in Poland to my grandfather who had immigrated to America. In the letter,…

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard…

Understanding Wisdom, Proverbs, and Prayer

A.W. Tozer wrote some important points to consider when we think about God's attribute of wisdom.  Some key takeaways include:
 
"Wisdom, among other things, is the ability to devise perfect ends and to achieve those ends by the most perfect means.  It sees the end from the beginning, so there can be no need to guess or conjecture. …

Urgent Call to Prayer

Today our nation is being attacked like never before educationally, socially, financially and spiritually. Christianity itself is under assault, and parents and grandparents are involved in a tug of war for the hearts and minds of their children. 

There is a real urgency at this time in our world to pray for these dear grandchildren for their…

Do You Have Abundance to Share?

Jesus, as recorded in Luke 11, shared a hypothetical, yet realistic, situation with his disciples.



Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’ And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t…

Grown in Prayer

"Prayer changes things" is a phrase I hear spoken every once in awhile.  While prayer is a method or tool that God created for us to communicate with him, God is the one who changes things.  He changes us and/or the circumstances we experience when we pray.



So, let me ask you this question.  What needs changing today?



I imagine, almost instantly, your mind is filling with personal concerns or matters in which you'd like to see change. …

SUDAN: CHRISTIAN WOMAN FACES DEATH FOR APOSTASY



by Elizabeth Kendal



On Thursday 15 May a court in Khartoum, Sudan, convicted Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Ishag (27) of apostasy and sentenced her to death by hanging. Having deemed her marriage to a Christian man null and void, the court also found Meriam guilty of adultery, for which she was sentenced to 100 lashes. The court ruled that Meriam, who is…

How To Be Ready for Battle

It has been said that the best defense is a good offense. As I have continued to meditate on the Psalms this week, I believe that is true, but with a qualification. (Click here to read more: http://goo.gl/gJr7uT)

"Hey mister...got anything for me?"

In 1984 Annie and I moved to Arizona to start a church.  We did it the hard way with no people and no place to meet except our living room.  In time, we rented a facility and God graciously sent us some people to love and lead.

The joy of lost ones turning to God

We sometimes find it difficult and challenging to pray with real faith and love for Muslim people. Struggles with unbelief, anger or fear keep us from voicing what God longs to do for them. Most of us have Muslim friends or neighbors. How can we pray with real hope that God will fulfill all He has promised for these people who are so precious to Him?

 

Our God is continually on a “search and rescue” mission.…

Whose Time Is It Anyway?

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and…

Dispelling a Lie about God and Prayer

There is a non-biblical belief that has entered the church, and the hearts of many Christians in our day an age.  It's one, like many, that hints of truth, but is laced with a disarming lie.  It is something that causes many Christians to relax, forfeit, and give up in prayer; even to the point of setting the Sword of the Spirit down for lengthy times.  The statement/idea is this: …

Learning From Hannah's Prayers and Praises

In 1 Samuel chapter 1, we read about Elkanah and his wives Penninah and Hannah.  God had given favor to Penninah.  She birthed sons and daughters to Elkanah.  Hannah, however, was barren. 



Each year, as Elkanah would travel with his wives and children to Shiloh to worship and sacrifice to the Lord, Penninah would, at some point, provoke and irritate Hannah over her barrenness.  This troubled Hannah to the point of weeping and being unable to…

Go Beyond Thoughts Toward Actually Praying

In our day and age, many people express words of encouragement to others by saying, "I'm thinking of you today," or "My thoughts and prayers are with you."  Statements like these express care and concern and are meaningful to many who receive them.  Kind thoughts and words can momentarily bolster someone who's experienced a loss; is struggling with loneliness, or may be struggling in one way or another. 



While expressions of encouragement are useful, there's a difference…
