Fruit of the Spirit: FAITHFULNESS

When someone is said to be faithful, we think of them as being truthful. Trustworthy. We know we can believe what they say and count on them to be at our side when we need them. Sadly, we often struggle with this concept, watching out for number one and living only for ourselves. But God gives us an example of what true faithfulness looks like in Himself, for great is His faithfulness to us.

Bible Study Overwhelm:  A Devotion

 I’ve really only grown in my knowledge and love for the Word over the past few years, despite spending my entire life in the church. The big reason is because it always seemed so overwhelming to study.
The truth is that studying the Bible can feel daunting. There are many methods of study, but it’s important to recognize why we study the Bible to help motivate us. Studying Scripture reveals who God is, why we need Christ, and teaches us how to live like Christ.

As Christians, we are called to live like Jesus, to pursue a Christ-like life because it’s our actions that point others to Him. What better way to learn how to act like Christ than to study the book that was God-breathed! 2 Timothy 3: 16-17 says, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Just like close friendships require communication and attention, so does our relationship with the Lord. And it starts with spending time in His Word. I won’t lie to you: it isn’t always easy. Whether we’re busy or we’re struggling to understand the passage we are reading, it can be hard sometimes. But it’s so worth it!

RSVP is necessary for planning purposes. Please RSVP on the church app under Events or on church website ( under Events by August 15th. Thank you!
