The way church's look today, even when they are doing things "right" is often not quite what it had been intended to look like. Today discover what the original design of the church was and ways you can contribute to moving closer to that.
Have you ever had to step out and do something God wanted you to, but you were unprepared? No notes, no outline…nothing but what God gives you at that moment? The message today from Elder Don Kinser was just that, no idea what God was going to do or lead, no notes or outline to look at, but he knew he had to speak to the church, so God had him to do it “off the cuff.”
What do DNA, silver, gold, and a little old lady from rural Roane county, WV have to do with each other? Find out in today's message, Off the Cuff, from Don Kinser.
Most people know that I use to be a Deputy Sheriff before coming to West Virginia. And in the various physical altercations in which I was involved, there was one lesson we learned very quickly—the most dangerous man that we ever had to face; the toughest, fiercest, opponent we ever fought—was not the biggest muscle-bound guy; not the baddest looking and talking guy; not even those known for their fighting skills. It was the average looking, or even small guy, who had no family, no job, no reason for life, and a whole lot of anger. Or, it was that man who just came down from the court system with the news that he would never get out of prison for the rest of his life.
In other words—that man who had, "nothing to lose!"
As you prepare to enter the new year, ask yourself if you are hanging on to something in your life that is preventing you from drawing closer to God. It's time to let go and grow!
God had to become a Man, because only God was qualified to pay the horrible price of sin. We have all heard many times during the Nativity, how Jesus had to become a Man so that He could truly understand, truly relate to us in every way.
We have recently been walking through defining moments in the life of David, good and bad, and watching how God used these events in his life to shape him into a man after God's own heart. Today we will look at a powerful story, that takes place when David is very young in age (about 24 or 25 years old), and still very inexperienced as a leader; still being molded by God in his spiritual walk, as many of us are as well. So, without further introduction, we will jump into the story and let God's Word take us where He wants us to go today.
We continue examining the life of David today, by focusing on the period in which he was exiled. Fleeing death at the hands of Saul, David takes to the hill country and tries to understand how he can be the anointed king chosen by God, and yet be exiled from his kingdom. Listen as Pastor Doss shows us that sometimes we need to learn to love the sky we are under and not necessarily yearn for the one we feel we should be under.
Have you ever done something that seemingly, in our eyes , would please God but it goes all wrong and fails miserably? Today we look into King David’s life and witness this exact thing and we will find out why everything went wrong.
Our study on the life of King David continues today with a look at David's, and the Israelite's, actions concerning the Ark of the Covenant. Won't you join us in discovering how even the most (apparently) worshipful actions may be the reason for your difficulties?
