• Friends

    Devotionals | November 18, 2019

    Jesus dug deep into relationships with people. Mary, Martha and Lazarus were close friends, as were Peter, James and John. As closely connected to the Father as He was, Jesus still needed relationships with people during His lifetime on earth. If Jesus needed friends, it makes sense that we need friends. Friends to encourage us, offer comfort, pray for us, challenge us, and hold us accountable. Who do you count among your closest friends? What are you doing to cultivate spiritual friendships as journey with you through life?

  • Praying for Others

    Devotionals | November 15, 2019

    How is prayer impacting your relationships with those you lead? What insights is God giving you about how to love and serve others? Talking with God (not just at God) about the people in our lives helps us to build and maintain healthy relationships with them. What if your prayer today was for God to help you see others as He sees them and love them as He loves them? Try it.

    And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. —Ephesians 6:18

  • Seasons of Life

    Blog | Karen McGuire | November 14, 2019

    All throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are reminded to express our gratitude for all the Lord has done for us by teaching, singing and work. Colossians 3:16 (HCSB) says it well, Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God.

  • Free to Choose

    Devotionals | November 13, 2019

    Free time, free giveaways, buy one/get one free, free to choose … freedom in large and small things is a big deal to most of us. Scripture tells us that we are free in Christ; but what are we free to do? How do we use our freedom? Jesus used His freedom to serve us. How do you use the freedom you have in Christ?

    For you have been called to live in freedom—not freedom to satisfy your sinful nature, but freedom to serve one another in love. – Galatians 5:13 (NLT)

  • Sacrificial Service

    Devotionals | November 11, 2019

    Jesus calls all of us to lives of service. At times, our commitment and obedience to Jesus’ example of servanthood places us in the center of our giftedness and we experience great joy in serving. At other times, serving comes at a cost, requiring sacrificial commitment, humility, and courage. Men and women through the ages—at home, in business, ministry, education, and civil service—have found that giving their all is worth the cost. Let’s honor Jesus and those who serve as we join them in serving others.

  • Rest Confidently

    Devotionals | November 08, 2019

    As leaders, we take responsibility for the people and work entrusted to us. At times, however, we can find ourselves carrying a heavier load than the Lord intends. Edging God out of our thinking, we act as if we alone are responsible for everyone and everything. But this is God’s world. He has called us into His story. He actively partners with us to accomplish His purposes. He invites you to trust Him and look to Him in every situation. As He works, He is glorified through your life and leadership and in the eyes of those around you.
