what God uses!

“It is not great talents God blesses as much as likeness to Christ. A holy minister is an awful weapon in the hand of God.”   -Charles Spurgeon

Did You Know?: Mama Didn’t Raise No Fool

Did you know that when the Bible talks about “fools”, especially in the book of Proverbs, it is not talking about people who are dumb?

Today, it’s easy to think that when someone is called a fool that’s just another way to say that they’re not the brightest pumpkin in the patch.

But when the Bible says that someone is a fool, it has a lot more to do with a person’s ability to recognize good from evil, and know the difference between godliness and worldliness.  God says that even supposedly smart people can actually be “fools” in reality. And even people who don’t have a lot of knowledge can really be “wise” when it comes to living a life that pleases God.

The good news for you is that faith in  Jesus Christ can make  you “wise unto salvation” (2 Timothy 3:15). We’ll talk more about what this looks like soon!

Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it,
but the instruction of fools is folly.
” – Proverbs 16:22


What is the Gospel?

Have you ever wondered what exactly people mean when they talk about “the Gospel”? The answer to that question is the most important thing you will ever consider. Your response to the Gospel really will change your life!  We talk about the truth of the Gospel every week in the YouthRoom, and we hear the Gospel preached every Sunday by our Pastor.

Here’s a preacher named John Piper with a great answer to the question, “What is the Gospel?”

New Study for Wednesday Nights

June 17, 2009
Drew has started a new study for Wednesday Nights.. famous verses in the Bible!
If we were to start a series in a books, like we have been, we almost never get to look at any verses outside of the book. With this we’ll be skipping around and learning about verses that have become so important & figure out why.

“8For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

Drew explained to us so clearly that we are DEAD, we are born in to our trespasses & sins if we’re not in God. We were not able to respond to God, but through God’s great grace, & not through our own works we are now able. We will only boast in our great God!
