Come let us return to the Lord

chad Bible, Faith, Redemption

Let us return to the Lord!  What a powerful statement.  It is not just powerful because it’s in the Bible,  it’s powerful because people know it’s true.  What we need now, and have always needed, is God.  Yet it seems that people often have a hard time coming back to God.  Why?  For some it may feel that they have …

The God Who Answers By Fire

chad Faith, Revival

We sit at the beginning of a new year, a new decade.  Where do you want to go?  Are you planning on making resolutions that you may or may not keep?  Will 2020 be just another year?  Will you be content with the status quo?  I challenge you to let this be the year that you choose to go after …

God’s Word in me

chad Bible, Hearing God, In Christ

There are so many treasures hidden in the Word of God  placed there by a loving Father for us to find. Proverbs 25:2 says  “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” (NIV)  I believe that God is calling us to a deeper place in His Word. Let’s …

In Pursuit

chad Love, Revival

Why should I pursue Him?  I know that Christ died for me and one day I will go to heaven.  Why spend time in pursuit of Him when I know that I already have the promise of heaven?   I pursue Him because He has called me and given me a divine purpose. I pursue Him because there is more.  I …

No Fear

chad Faith, Love

Fear is not meant to have any place in our lives.  You were created to live without fear. Fear didn’t exist until sin entered mankind.  In the garden Adam and Eve walked freely with no …

God we want more of YOU!

chad Revival, The Altar

It is time we became more hungry for a move of God!!! Are you hungry for a move of God in your city?   What does that even look like? It doesn’t matter what your city is like, it needs a move of God.  We can’t be content with just clean streets and good schools. We need a move of God. …

Altar Culture – Faith

chad Culture, Faith

Let’s talk about faith.   It is a powerful word, often used without  a real understanding of it’s meaning. For example, look how people use the word love.  I love that thing. I love that food. We throw the word love around to anything that looks or feels good and the true weight of the word gets washed out.  Faith, I …

Altar Culture – Worship

chad Culture, The Altar, Worship

As we continue to look at the culture of the altar, you can not go to far without looking at worship.  In fact the very first altar mentioned in the Bible is about worship. In Genesis 7 and 8 we have the account of the flood and Noah.  Most people are familiar with most of the details about the ark …
