Gold City – Heaven

“Heaven, heaven, so much talk about heaven Heaven, heaven, so much talk about heaven Heaven, heaven, I love to talk about heaven And one of these days, I’m going there” “Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides thee.  My flesh and my heart faileth: but…

Gold City – Still Small Voice

Wasn’t in the lightning, wasn’t in the strong wind Wasn’t in the mountain that crumbled to the ground Wasn’t in the earthquake that shook the hillside Just a still small voice turned this man around. “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak…

BFA Devotional – A New Thing

“Lord, won’t You do a new thing Use me like You never had before I’ve seen the tried and true thing It made me want to serve You even more I want to let my light shine, so everyone can see And be the kind of witness, that You would have me be Just like…

BFA Devotional – I Believe

A shepherd boy killing a giant with a sling shot on the first try… A man thrown into a lion’s den, yet, alive three days later… Three men cast into a furnace but not consumed by the flames… A city collapses by the sound of a trumpet blast… About a million people walking through a…

BFA Song Devotional – Not One

“He has never loved less than a Father And when his children’s lives come undone He has never abandoned a daughter or forsaken a son Not one, not one” After listening to this song from Brian Free and Assurance titled “Not One,” I began thinking of some of the places in the Word of God…

Easter 2012 – What The Blood Does

“It’s the scarlet thread that ties the beginning to the end…” This is the first line that we are going to take from our theme song, It’s All About The Blood.  I promised in our last post that we would look at what would happen if we took the blood out of the Bible.  Our…

Introduction: Easter 2012 – It’s All About The Blood

“God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ.” Last year for Easter we took a look at different characters surrounding the cross: the Roman Centurion, Peter, the thief on the cross, Barabbas, Joseph and of course none other than our Lord Himself. This year, I’d like to do a completely different study with…

Video – Our True Identity

Odd title, isn’t it?  Well, sometimes I think we get so caught up in the “religion” part of the Believer’s life, that we forget the “Person” whom it is centered around – the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is our true identity. I saw this video in my FaceBook feed one day and knew that it…

Valentine’s Part Four – Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions speak louder than words…we’re all familiar with that saying.  I’m sure everyone can think back to a time in their life when someone’s actions spoke volumes about their love that words wouldn’t be able to describe.  We could all stop right now and make a list of those moments.  Some would be long, others…

Valentine’s Part Three – God of Love Versus gods of Fear

An African Proverb reads – “It is better to be loved than feared.” Odd statement coming from Africa, isn’t it?  When we read about Africa don’t we read about superstition and fear?  When is the last time you heard the words “gods,” “Africa,” and “love” all in the same sentence?  Instead, we find tribes of…
