Abide

Now there’s a funny little word That’s often said and often heard. It has a meaning all its own It directs the heart and sets the tone. It’s not like “faith” it’s not like “trust” Though to abide those are a must. Abiding is where those both meet Where what we know is given feet To walk this walk of Christian life Through joy and sorrow...

Sleep

God: Busy While We Sleep Each night we collapse into our beds, and eventually fall asleep. Then we wake up in the morning and start another day. We often see sleep as something natural that we do every night to restore our bodies. In Humility: True Greatness, C.J. Mahaney says that one thing we fail to see is where and how much, God is working in sleep. When we go to our beds to sleep we...

Cross Culture: Parent-Youth Ministry part 2

(Blog Manager’s Note: this is the third of a few-part post on CFC’s Parent/Youth youth ministry, which is appearing on a monthly basis.) Why Do We Do What We Do? Since I have the joy of leading CFC’s youth ministry, I thought it would be good to highlight the philosophical values we are clinging to as a youth ministry.  Why do we do youth ministry the way we do? ...

Boundary Lines

Set by God Psalm 16:5-6 “The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.” Lately I’ve been reflecting a lot on the boundary lines that the Lord has placed in my life.  And I have to admit…this reflecting has been because my boundary lines have felt pretty...

When You Sin

A Big Deal Sin should be a big deal to us as believers. When we are born again we are given a new nature to do what God wants and commands. As Galatians 5:24 says, “Those who belong to Jesus Christ have crucified the flesh...” and 1 Corinthians 5:17 says, “...the new has come.” We are new creations. However, sin still exists in our lives -- and will until we are with...

When We Don’t Know How to Pray...

If you are like me, sometimes we need help to pray. Perhaps it’s a long standing situation that we’ve prayed through from every possible angle and have exhausted our words. Perhaps we’ve been praying and praying and praying into a particular issue and we’re not sure if the Lord is saying no, or wait, or something else. Or perhaps it is a situation for which we just...

My Father

By Tony Iacoangelo My father recently passed away at the age of 92. He and my mother were married for 67 years. Growing up in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY he pretty much went through most of his life thinking Jesus Christ as a great man and prophet who went around preaching about God. Although he was raised a Catholic he said he never could really grasp the Holy...

Living Life Empty

Psalm 55:22 "Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved."   During one of my devotion times a little while ago, God showed me something I named “living life empty,” which is something I and every Christian should strive to live like. Empty means to be free of worries, fears, or anything that takes up space in your...

Same Sex Concerns: Culturally Changing Morality

What Are We to Say? When the former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton threw in her backing for the legalization of Same-Sex marriage on the national scale, I felt compelled to write. With this growing support for the redefinition of marriage, we as believers face mounting challenges and will likely face growing persecution. For many believers, this issue is a difficult one to...

The Big White Bible

The giant white bible that lay open on the communion table of the little Baptist church I grew up in was… giant.  The weight of a bowling ball at least.  I’m convinced the reason it never moved was that nobody could lift it.  It had a huge padded cover, lots of pages, and lots of words.  Lots.  The end part was about Jesus—I knew that, and the...
