Fellowship and Family

We’ve missed fellowship over the last year and a half; it’s something we crave and need. But who are we supposed to fellowship with? Our family? Who is our family? Who is our neighbor? Brandon discusses learning to see who our family really is (and could be!), as well as how to encourage growth and…

Let Us Go on to Maturity

Now that the world is reopening, where should we go? Back to our old ways? Perhaps we could go somewhere better. As God continues to encourage and nurture us, let us seek to go on to maturity; a fullness and completeness only achievable by the grace and mercy of God by the sacrifice of his…

Empty to Full!

There are plenty of crises in the world; plenty of reasons to feel lost, aimless, and empty. But the key to a healthy relationship with God is a continual denial of self. When you’re able to get yourself out of the way of your fulfillment, only then can God fill you completely and perfectly.

Flipping

We flip lots of things in our life: houses, coins, sides, etc; Dean explores how we may flip in everyday life, as well as how we may flip spiritually. Finally, he asks what can we do to make “the flip” to finally see, listen, open our heart, repent, and decide to follow “the Lord who…

Time

Dean asks the question, “what time is it for you?” Through his discussion, he challenges us to trust that “there is a time for everything” and that we need to set our spiritual clocks to “God Standard Time.” We must recognize this moment (and every moment) is “NOW time,” for 2 Corinthians 6:2 tell us,…
