Paul says we should remember the “sound words.” What does that mean? How does that apply to us? I think often today, we’re not really even sure what “sound words” are; let’s think about that for a moment.
Jesus tells us He will return and judge the world. What does that really mean? Should we be afraid? As we wrap up “the Future is Here,” these are the questions I delve into.
When I was in the PCA, Keller often made me glad I was. Though I am not now, I’m still glad for his wisdom that benefits the Church as a whole and how he represents the “Tims” of the world. Everything in this thread applies well beyond the PCA, incidentally.
What does waiting for Jesus’s return look like? Are we just trying to “make it through” until the end? This week we turn to Matthew 25:14-30, looking at the “Parable of the Talents” and what it says to us about what God calls us to do with our lives right now. (Tonight’s live stream was interesting to say the least — part of the system crashed midway through the livestream. The stream kept going, but it was definitely stressful! 😬)
What does real courage in the Lord look like? Melanie Haynes takes us to the Book of Joshua to better understand that question for this week’s 52 Verses, 52 Books, 52 Weeks.
20 Years ago today, FaithTree.com launched as the world’s first (and, I think, still only) customizable Christian portal. 🎉 At the time, I didn’t really think about what it would be like if I were still developing it two decades later, but here we are. The original concept for FaithTree was modeled after classic portal sites such as My Yahoo and My Netscape. Over time, it also became a full fledge RSS news feed reader and, later, spun into an outreach ministry, FaithTree Christian Fellowship.
20 years is too big of deal to let go by without a major celebration, don’t you think?
This month I’ve been adding new features to celebrate this special milestone, starting a few weeks ago with the all new FaithTree WeatherDesk, with free forecasts all around the world and the unique “Weather in the Bible” feature that shows you a verse that ties into your current weather.
I have a few more planned in the coming days of celebration, but one I cannot wait to share with you launches RIGHT NOW on the anniversary day itself: FaithTree Grow.
FaithTree Grow brings together sermons, devotionals and articles from friends of FaithTree (including Bible Baptist Church, Little Hills Church and Harvester Christian Church) alongside FaithTree’s Bible search tool that lets you explore God’s Word and find messages related to the passages you look up. I hope you take a look and that this new feature blesses you as you explore how God is speaking through believers around our community!
What makes us foolish vs. wise in God’s eyes? That’s the question of the night as we dig into Matthew 25:1-13 (The Wise and Foolish Virgins). Got a few minutes? Please join me.
Jim Krenning takes us to Song of Songs this week for 52 Verses, 52 Books, 52 Weeks. It’s a great message and I hope you’ll take a moment to be blessed by it.
Are we prepared for Jesus’s return? Pastor Tim continues our series in Matthew 24-25, looking this week at Jesus’s call that we always be prepared.
Join us this week for a visit to the Epistle to Titus, thinking about who we are, who God is and how He loves us.
