10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Last week we discussed verse four of ‘Amazing Grace.’ We talked about how grace sees us through our tough times.

God is indeed bigger than any problem we have, however, we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t admit that it sometimes feels like God is far away from us. Robyn suggested that at those times we don’t feel God’s presence because our focus is on ourselves. You can’t see what you refuse to look for. My former pastor told the story of driving with his wife. In front of them was a pickup truck. In the cab the young girl was sitting close to her boyfriend, My pastors wife said “Why don’t we sit like that anymore.” He replied ” I haven’t moved.” (more…)

Tuesday Morning Recap

Gentlemen,

Tomorrow we continue our series on Colossians. We discussed the value of patience and endurance.

10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Last week we continued our series on ‘Amazing Grace.’ John Newton, the man who wrote the hymn, describes grace as joyful and precious. We discussed the fact that only someone who realizes how retched they were can appreciate the gift of salvation. To many operate as if grace cost God nothing. The truth is that our salvation was purchased at a great a precious price. It is only when we understand what our sin cost God that we can begin to live lives that please Him. (more…)

 

Wednesday Night Recap

Friends,

Last week we began a study of ‘Life Lines.’ Alleyne wrote this book as she battled cancer. Many of you shared how cancer strengthened your faith. We agreed that God is stronger than cancer or any difficulty we face. Additionally, ¬†God has a good and perfect plan for our lives and we can trust that He is constantly working all things for good.

We thank Tom for sharing this book with us and Alleyne for taking the time to record her brilliant insights.

Tonight we continue with the next three devotions.

See you tonight.
