DEVO 011: Want to feel truly connected with God? Begin every day like this…

Inductive Study on Galatians 5:13-26

I have a couple of friends that I only speak to about once each year.  Even though we connect very infrequently we remain friends and we talk as though time had never passed.  It’s as though our friendship was simply meant to be eternal.  You may have a couple of friends like that, too.  And you may appreciate them as much as I appreciate mine.  But, lets make sure we understand that this is really rare, not normal, and absolutely not the way we grow our friendship with God.

DEVO 010: What It Means To Live Free As A Christian

Inductive Study on Galatians 5:1-12

When I bought my first car as a Teen I experienced what FREEDOM truly feels like!  I loved it!  My Hyundai Pony cost me $500 and was rusting apart really quickly, but my agile rear-wheel drive piece of heaven got me on the road where ever I wanted to go whenever I wanted to go there!  I thought I finally knew what freedom really was.  That is, until I accepted Jesus.  Then, I truly knew what freedom felt like.  But the freedom I found in Jesus was also different than I thought it should be – it made me really nervous.  How does a person live without something (like rules, or point form do’s and don’ts) to keep them in check and on the right path?

You Will Very Likely Lead Someone To Jesus At The Alliston Potato Fest

DEVO 008: The Definitive Reason Why Good Works Can’t Connect You With God

Inductive Study on Galatians 3:23-4:7

Babysitters are great! Our 4 kids create a busy life for Michelle and I. Without babysitters my wife and I would never have a moment to connect. For me, a good babysitter is one who helps our kids stay within the guidelines we have for them. A babysitter is a representation of Michelle and I until we return.  They serve a purpose for a limited time – once mommy and daddy are home the time of the babysitter is over.
