Immerse: Messiah – Week 1

by

The fruit of the Spirit is not push, drive, climb, grasp and trample. There is a legitimate place for the blood, sweat, and tears; but such passion should have its roots in the call of God, not in the desire to get ahead. Life is more than a climb to the top of the heap. – Richard Foster

Immerse – Messiah: Introduction

by

We are fond of saying that the Bible has all the answers. And that is certainly correct. The text of the Bible sets us in a reality that is congruent with who we are as created beings in God’s image and what we are destined for in the purposes of Christ. But the Bible also has all the questions, many of them that we would just as soon were never asked of us, and some of which we will spend the rest of our lives doing our best to dodge. The Bible is a most comforting book; it is also a most discomforting book. – Eugene Peterson

Jude – Contender of the Faith

by

Spiritual maturity is not reached by the passing of the years, but by obedience to the will of God. Some people mature into an understanding of God’s will more quickly than others because they obey more readily; they more readily sacrifice the life of nature to the will of God. – Oswald Chambers

Jude: Contender of the Faith

by

The study of Scripture is like mastering an instrument. A professional can spot an amateur a mile away. His spiritual ear is razor-sharp. He is familiar with the common mistakes, the counterarguments; and he can clearly distinguish the difference between honest critics of the faith and mere fools who criticize that which they know nothing.
– Criss Jami

Storyboard

by

Never say or do anything until you have asked yourself whether it will be pleasing to God, good for yourself, and edifying to your neighbor. – Ignatius of Loyola

Why Are You Here?

by

‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ – Luke 15:31-32

The Mind of Christ

by

Before one can walk as Christ walked and talk as Christ talked, he must first begin to think as Christ thought. – AA Allen

Because You Say So…. I Will

by

The reason some of us are such poor specimens of Christianity is because we have no Almighty Christ. We have Christian attributes and experiences, but there is no abandonment to Jesus Christ. – Oswald Chambers

I AM – The Vine John 15:5

by

I do nothing else but abide in his holy presence, and I do this by simple attentiveness and an habitual, loving turning of my eyes on him. This I should call the actual presence of God, or to put it better, a wordless and secret conversation between the soul and God which no longer ends. – Bother Lawrence
