Walking in faith through

Jesus Christ

in the Spirit of love

2018 IPF Power Passage

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:

for it is the power of God unto salvation

to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:

as it is written, The just shall live by faith.     Romans 1:16-17

2018 IPF Illustration Passage

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.    Ephesians 5:15-17

Aspire To Go Higher

ASPIRE FOLXWe were created for progress. For the upwardly bound forward thinkers, movers and shakers, comfort zones are rest stops on the way to where you’re going. To get there you’ve got to go there, which means you’ve got to move. Riding a stationary bike is excellent cardio yet you will always be where you began. If you want to be somewhere else, you need to identify the most effective means of transportation to get you there. Faith, prayer, determination, commitment, a made-up mind, and a can-do attitude will take you to victorious, more-than-a-conqueror places.

                       “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and  faint.”  Isaiah 40:31

God used eagles to paint a word picture the readers could see. From Bible times to now, the eagle remains one of the most regal birds ever to grace God’s heavens. When we think of eagles, some words that come to mind are power, command, majestic, and capable. Eagles soar. It’s as if they own the sky when they fly.   EAGLE & RAINBOW

In this power passage, Isaiah tells us that we can expect to advance, which means we have God’s permission to aspire to go higher. When we wait on God to reveal a matter, illuminate a thing, equip us, prepare us, call us, and send us, we will occupy where we go. We will command it because God has performed it. You will be able to keep it because God will sustain it. You will mount up with eagle’s wings; will run and not get tired; you will walk and not faint.

Today, aspire to go higher. Reach for that goal that once intimidated you or even scared you. Commit more time to Bible study. Pray more. Praise more. Share Christ more. Take your marriage to a higher level. Reconcile that broken relationship. Forgive your friend. Hang out with your kids. Go get that job. Go back to school. Try out for that team. Apply for that home loan. Launch your dream business. Reach. Attain. Excel. Aspire to go higher.

Make It A Great Day

GREAT DAY2Every day is a new day. That means every day is a new opportunity for excellence. Every day is an opportunity to be more grateful than the day before. Every day is an opportunity to be better than you were yesterday. Every day is a new opportunity to aspire and go higher than you did the day before.

Every day is a new opportunity to dream big and then live the dream. Every day is a new opportunity to love more, give more, live more. Every day is a new opportunity to share generously. Every day is a new opportunity to pay kindness forward. Every day is a new opportunity to grow.GOOD DAY TO HAVE GREAT DAY

Make today a great day by starting it out with thanking God for a new day. Make today a great day by committing to being your best self. Make today a great day by setting ideal and real goals. Make today a great day by taking at least one step towards making your dreams come true.

Make today a great day by loving someone you used to, don’t want to, or found it hard to. Make today a great day by giving and living until you feel it. Make today a great day by sharing your experience, knowledge, you. Make today a great day by paying for someone else’s something who may be in front or behind you in line. Make today a great day by growing in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, according to 2 Peter 3:18. To Him be glory both now and for ever.  Amen.

Power Walking Thru the Word

BIBLE STUDY3Some of you cannot and/or do not go to Sunday School or  Bible Study, for reasons known and unknown.  Yet you desire to study the Word of God.

We hear you.  Some of you cannot make it to church because of your work schedules or you’re home sick or you’re in the hospital or you’re on the road, or for other reasons.  Yet you miss studying your Bible or want a deeper understanding of God’s Word.

Amazingly, people expressed more interest in having online Bible study than having online church service.  So, because of you, we will soon be powerwalking through the Bible.  Our tentative launch date is May 2016.  Please stay tuned and keep checking back in.  We believe where 2 or 3 are gathered in Jesus name, He is truly in the midst (Matthew 18:20)…even on the Internet!

BTW (by the way), please like us on Facebook.   And, we would love to hear from you.  Tell us what you would like to get out of this online Bible study.  We invite positive, inspirational, empowering comments, in the spirit of love.  Thank you for sharing.
