• Work

    Devotionals | April 20, 2018

    From the world’s perspective, work is often viewed as a curse, something to get done so that we can get on to relaxing and having fun. In contrast, from God’s perspective, work is a gift that reflects His creativity and energy and life-giving nature. By inviting us to join Him in His work of caring for creation in all its facets, God gave human beings purpose and significance and an opportunity to experience the satisfaction He experienced in creation. What work has God given you to do?

  • Embracing Your Uniqueness

    Blog | Robert and Lori Ferguson | April 19, 2018

    You are unique. God, the Creator, made you that way.

    Of course we are all made in the image of God.

    “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” – Genesis 1:27

    But this doesn’t mean He made a bunch of clones. Quite the contrary. God created each of us as unique individuals that make up the body of Christ.

    “Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.” – 1 Corinthians 12:27

  • Know Yourself

    Devotionals | April 18, 2018

    Each of us has been shaped by God to reflect His image. Some of us naturally reflect His direct, action-oriented approach to the world, while others more naturally reflect His deep love for people, His passion to communicate with us, or His concern for every aspect and detail of life. When we make it our goal to honor Him with who we are and how we live, He works through us and helps us adapt our behavior to the people and situations around us. How does He want to work through you today?

  • The Waiting Room

    Blog | Sheryl Giesbrecht | April 17, 2018

    “A soul cannot seek close fellowship with God, or attain the abiding consciousness of waiting on Him all the day, without a very honest and entire surrender to all His will.”  Andrew Murray

  • Do This

    Devotionals | April 16, 2018

    Jesus exhorted His followers to a truly revolutionary way of living. His standard for life didn’t consist of merely telling people what not to do. Instead, He exhorted God’s people to offer loving service to others. He called people back to the heart of the Old Testament message with one comprehensive command: “In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.” How will you proactively take loving action for the benefit of those around you today?

  • Serving God’s Purpose

    Devotionals | April 13, 2018

    Jesus was born according to the Father’s purpose, and He served God’s purpose in the power of the Spirit. Because Jesus accomplished His mission, the Spirit has been poured out to empower us to serve God’s purpose, also. You, as well, have been born according to the Father’s purpose and sent into the world, just as the Father sent Jesus. As you depend upon the Spirit’s leading, you will be infused with the Spirit’s presence and power to serve God’s purpose. Today, will you choose to rest in Him, listen for His voice, and follow His leading?

  • Delegation

    4 Reasons It’s Hard & 4 Ways To Improve

    Blog | Owen Phelps | April 12, 2018

    You don’t have to dig very deep into most books about management or leadership before you come to an admonition that in order to be an effective leader or manager you have to learn how to delegate.

    What could be so difficult about that?

    I mean, why would anyone have to struggle to let someone else do some of their work? Delegating makes work easier. Heck, it frees up time for personal as well as professional activities – which is to say, it makes life better. Why would anyone resist that?

  • Dying to Live

    Devotionals | April 11, 2018

    Jesus calls us to follow Him, to daily take up our cross, lay down our lives, and die to ourselves and worldly desires, just as He did. In Jesus, we have been crucified to the world and its demands. No longer are we slaves to a system that edges God out of life and leadership. We have been infused with His Spirit, given new life, and enabled to live lives that exalt God. What temptations to edge God out do you need to die to serve others like Jesus serves you?

  • Changes and Transformations

    Blog | Christine Vogelsang | April 10, 2018

    “If you move this bookcase into the living room and then pull the couch away from the wall to angle into the room, I think you’ll like the change.”

    My good friend has an eye for making a room look wonderful. She knows I don’t spend a lot of money on furnishings, and she’s quick to work her magic with what’s in front of her. She’d been to my house on many occasions, and I knew she’d been rearranging my furniture in her head for some time.
