Sometimes you just have to say No “No” isn’t a four-letter word. Saying “no” isn’t necessarily bad and you shouldn’t feel bad when you say it. Part of saying no means taking a stand. It can mean standing up to injustice. For example, our legal system is, for the most part, dependent on people saying […]

Some people want to control others. This reminds me of the Bible story in Genesis 27 where Jacob stole Esau’s blessing. We’re not going to focus on Jacob. Instead, we’re looking at his mother, Rebekah. That’s why this is under the heading of control, not greed. Isaac and Rebekah were unhappy when Esau married two […]

Fear is a powerful motivator. The Bible tells us to fear not. Stonewall Jackson (and others) are attributed as having said “Never take counsel from your fear.” Nonetheless, people act based on fear. In 1 Kings 19, Elijah had executed all of the false profits leading Israel astray. King Ahab whined to his wife, Jezebel. […]

Tradition can be a powerful motivator. Traditions can be like laws, meaning the group following them will not accept any change or departure from their custom. Traditions can also be a way of acting that varies with life changes. In 2 Thessalonians 2:15, Paul urged the Church to stand fast and hold to the traditions. […]

This is the first in a series of posts exploring why people do what they do. In this post, we’re discussing certainty. When I was a young lawyer, I worked on a corporate team where Fortune 500 companies paid tens of thousands of dollars for certainty. When they signed a contract, they wanted to know […]

This week Brother Allen Byers spoke from 2 Kings, Chapter 5. Chapter 5 tells the story of how Naaman was healed of leprosy. In speaking on this passage, Brother Byers reminds us that we’re not in control. But God is. God has been in control since the beginning of time and He never changes. God […]

This week, Brother Allen spoke from Luke 15, focusing not on the Lost Son, but on the Loving Father. In Luke 15:20, the Lost Son got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to […]

Brother Allen Byers spoke from Genesis 21, beginning at verse 11. The message, called Slow Down To Look Around, tells us that it’s not our responsibility to make God’s promises come true. Yes, we’re supposed to obey God and avoid laziness, but God will make His own promises come true. Listen HERE.

On June 7, 2023, Allen Byers brought us a lesson titled “Keep it moving.” It focus on the story of David and Bathsheba in 2 Samuel 11, but instead of looking at the sin, Brother Byers looks at what caused the sin. What could David have done to avoid this mess in the first place? […]

On Wednesday, May 23, Allen Byers brought us a message out of Mark, Chapter 2. There, Jesus was teaching in a house and when several men brought their friend to Jesus for healing, they couldn’t get through. Did they give up? Did they decide this just wasn’t the time to do God’s work? No. They […]
