The Tree Of Life

Written by Amanda Giobbi | January 29, 2011 |

Revelation—what we already know:
• John is the author
• Called “Revelation” because it is the revelation of Jesus Christ
• It addresses (though not in a way that we can know for sure) the return of Jesus and his future triumph over evil
• Many people have different interpretations of what Revelation means

On December 27th you read Genesis 2:9, in …

Stop Drop Repent

Written by Andy Pisciotti | January 26, 2011 | Revelation 7 - 9

Everyone is searching for something.  The issue most of us face is that we are searching for the wrong things.  We look for satisfaction from our jobs and where we work.  We look for love in places and from people who can not and will not love us back.  We look for comfort from food, from chocolate, and from alcohol (seriously, choose your poison).  We look for community in isolated …

Passionate. Conviction. Reckless.(Revelations 1-3)

Written by Jenilee LeFors | January 24, 2011 | Revelation 1 - 3

Passionate. Conviction. Reckless.

Many people are passionate, convinced and reckless for their certain sports team. Whether it is football, basketball, baseball, NFL, NCAA, NBA, people are passionate, convinced, and reckless for their teams. People will go to great lengths to demonstrate their affiliation with their team. And especially when the winning comes, there is an even greater (almost obnoxious) passion. (Can anyone say Steeler fans?)

I don’t know …

Stay Golden

Written by Kurtis Parks | January 23, 2011 | Exodus 37 - 40

It’s pretty interesting to me reading through God’s instructions for the building of the tabernacle, and it’s contents, that much of it is made with fine, elaborate resources, the main one being pure gold. In fact, according to the measurements and weights of that time, the amount of gold used for the construction was equal to roughly 2,200 pounds by today’s standard. The amount of silver was 7,550 pounds today, …

Tabernacle Contributions (Exodus 34-36)

Written by Nina Schmidgall | January 22, 2011 |

This week my adorable niece was in our office (I use the word “office” very broadly here – ha) and it seemed like she was upset.  When I pressed, she explained, through tears that she had not been happy with the report card she had gotten that day.  I will skip any details since that is her story and not mine…but my heart swelled with empathy as my memory flooded …

Just a few reminders!

Written by Reagan Chaney | January 21, 2011 |

After today’s reading I looked over and saw that my notes are more like a list of reminders.

1. Go has given us abilities that are our gifts and talents. And I have given to all able men ability (31:6)
2. Don’t forget to Sabbath. Take your seventh day and rest! I have noticed that when I walk away from things for a day I can …

Mountain Top Experiences: “Old Ways” or “God’s Way”?

Written by Andy Pisciotti | January 19, 2011 | Exodus 25 - 27

The phrase “Be careful to build it just as you were shown on the mountain,” occurs in one form or another 3 times in Exodus 25-27 (NLT). The word “must” in the NLT shows up 162 times in Exodus (mas o menos).  12 of those times are between chapters 25-27. In other words, God is not playing around with His instructions! He is specific and expected specific results to His …

Stop Your Complaining and Enjoy God’s Provision (Exodus 16-18)

Written by Chris Jarrell | January 16, 2011 |

“If only the Lord had killed us back in Egypt,” they moaned. “There we sat around pots filled with meat and ate all the bread we wanted. But now you have brought us into this wilderness to starve us all to death.” Exodus 16:3 New Living Translation

Let me start out asking a simple question: How often does God provide and we still complain?  Okay, one more question: Why do …

Short term Memory loss (Exodus 13-15)

Written by Jenilee LeFors | January 15, 2011 | Exodus 13 - 15

I find this passage of scripture so interesting. The Plagues just happened, the Israelites were spared. God is obviously handling the situation and at every twist and bend of the story, the Israelites doubt and question why they are going the direction that they are going, they are wishing they could be back in the miserable situations. One moment they are praising God, and the other they are crying out …
