  • WATCH WHAT YOU SAY

    “Don’t use foul or abusive language.  Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”  (Ephesians 4:29 NLT)

    What comes out of our mouths should always be encouraging and edifying to our fellow believers, even non­believers.  Everything we say should be filled with grace and love.  The only way that is possible is by being filled and led by the Holy Spirit.  We need to take time every day to allow Him to speak to our hearts otherwise our words won’t be filled with life but of ourselves.  What comes out of the flesh does not encourage or build up, it tears down and promotes self.  As Christians, we should seek to bless those we come in contact with.  Before saying anything, we should think about it.  If it isn’t encouraging, helpful, edifying or out of love, don’t speak it.  Don’t say something that could harm, belittle or slander.  Basically, we shouldn’t say anything we wouldn’t want said about ourselves.  “And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father” (Colossians 3:17 NLT).

  • THE DANGER OF DEBT

    “Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is slave to the lender.”  (Proverbs 22:7)

    If you have a home mortgage, a car note, student loan, credit card debt or any other form of consumer debt, you know firsthand the truth of this verse.  Debt is normal in our society, and “normal” means broke.  Debt is not a sin, nor is it prohibited for the believer; however, lifelong debt should not be normal for a Christian.  Whenever debt is mentioned in the Bible it’s always mentioned in the negative.  It’s never encouraged.  God’s word is the ultimate financial textbook because the Author is the ultimate Financial Planner.  God knows if you regularly borrow money and make it a way of life, you will spend your life in financial bondage.  God’s Word does not change.  His principles are as applicable today as when they were written.  It’s never too late to begin applying God’s Word to your personal finances.  As my good friend Dave Ramsey always says, “Debt is dumb.”  What would life look like if you had no mortgage, no car payments, etc.  How generous could you be?  God wants you to be free…to serve Him.

  • THE ONLY WAY

    “If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” (John 14:3­6)

    If there were any other way for us to be acceptable in God’s sight, I imagine He would have certainly chosen that path versus watching his only Son suffer and die.  It must have been awful for Jesus to take on the sin of the world…especially in such horrific fashion (Isaiah 53:4­12).  However, He did so to create an opportunity for us to share in eternity (Romans 5:8).  The wages of sin (death) had to be paid for humankind (Romans 3:23; 6:23).  Through His sinless walk as a human and death on a cross, Christ became the transportation for us to ride into heaven (Ephesians 2:4­10).  To avoid danger…injury or death, please keep your head, hands, and feet in the vehicle at all times (John 15:5­8)!

  • WORKING TOGETHER

    “Dear brothers and sisters, I appeal to you by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ to stop arguing among yourselves.  Let there be real harmony so there won’t be divisions in the church.  I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”  (1 Corinthians 1:10 NLT)

    When cooperating with others, we always seek unity.  Disagreements need not turn into personal attacks.  Choose team members that share your basic set of values and assumptions, otherwise we will be pulling in different directions.  When we find ourselves struggling with our old sinful nature, we have the power of the Holy Spirit to help us do what is right.  Disagreements can produce a positive result and introduce new ideas that challenge and stimulate our thinking.  Loving confrontation is different from argumentativeness.  Conflict is inevitable.  When it arises, true cooperation seeks the highest good for all.  When we do cooperate together, God can accomplish remarkable things through us.

  • BEING LED BY THE SPIRIT

    "All who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”   (Romans 8:14)

    It’s one thing to have the Spirit but does the Spirit have you?  Do you have the Spirit dwelling in you and are you “led by the Spirit,” or are you still led by your own desires?  Perhaps it’s because you don’t know that you are no longer “obligated to do what your sinful nature urges you to do” (Romans 8:12 NLT).  You are free and empowered by the Spirit to live and be led by the Spirit!  So you can “by the Spirit put to death the deeds of the body” (Romans 8:13) and "cry out” in prayer to your “Abba Father” who gives what is needed.  God wants to lead your life away from your own desires to His! Turn the leadership of your life over to Him that you may truly “live” (Romans 8:13).

  • NEAR TO HEAR


    “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.” (Psalm 145:18)

    As followers of Christ we sometimes find ourselves in unfamiliar places.  Some of us will try new things, different foods, clothing styles even new technology.  We do so even though there’s risk involved like the criticism of family and friends or missing out on that  promotion at work.  In those times it’s reassuring to know “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him.”  In other words He’s near to hear your prayer.  The Psalmist goes on to say that, the Lord will not only hear their cry but that He also, “preserves all who love Him” (verse 20).  So be encouraged to take those risks and venture out into the scary unknown.  Step out in faith and serve the Lord by serving others in your giving, witnessing and working.  Know that our faithful and ever watchful God is always near to hear our call.

  • BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT

    “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.”  (Ephesians 5:18)


    In the above mentioned verse, Paul instructs us to be filled with the Spirit.  Notice two things here.  First, this is a command and not a mere option.  Second, it is in the present tense, which indicates a continuing action.  In other words, we are to be filled with the Spirit day by day, moment by moment.  You might wonder what this means.  Both a drunk and a spiritual person is controlled – that is, under the influence of either the liquor or the Spirit, and as a result does things that are unnatural to him.  In both cases, he abandons himself to the influence and acts accordingly.  So to be filled with the Holy Spirit means that we will no longer be controlled or governed by self but by the Holy Spirit.  Believers are filled when we are fully yielded to Him.  As a result, the Holy Spirit empowers us to live a life pleasing to God.  Praise JESUS!

  • A MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

    “…  The LORD does not look at the things people look at.  People look at the outward appearance,but the LORD looks at the heart.”  (1 Samuel 16:7 NIV)

    We are aware of David’s prominence in the bible.  There are several books about him and many chapters written by him.  Some of the most poetic and often quoted Psalms were written by him.  He is even mentioned in the New Testament long after his death and his name is referenced to Jesus’ lineage.  Although he was modest in stature and the youngest of eight brothers in his family and therefore had the lowest standing, God chose him because of his heart.  Like other figures in the bible, David stumbled and fell, but he also slew the giant Goliath and he united God’s nation.  No doubt we can learn much from his life.  Sisters and brothers of CCWO, if we want to be chosen, if we want to be used by God, let’s check ourselves and be reminded that God examines the heart.  “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9 ).

  • SUFFERING

    “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”   (John 14:27)

    Suffering, can be persistent.  Whether physical or emotional, constancy of a recurring pain can leave us feeling overwhelmed.  I share with you Max Lucado’s encouraging words from his book, In The Eye Of The Storm.  “There is a window in your heart through which you can see God.  Once upon a time that window was clear.  Your view of God was crisp.  You could see God as clearly as vividly as you could see a gentle valley or hillside.  Then, suddenly, the window cracked.  A pebble broke the window.  A pebble of pain.  And God was not so easy to see.  The view that had been so crisp had changed.  You were puzzled.  God wouldn’t allow something like this to happen, would he?  When you can’t see Him, trust Him… Jesus is closer than you’ve ever dreamed.”  Our Lord Jesus promised never to forsake us.  He understands what it means to suffer.  Call out to Him in your times of suffering and allow His peace to fill you, and His love, to comfort you.

  • GREATER IS HE

    “But you belong to God, my dear children.  You have already won your fight with these false prophets, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.”  (1 John 4:4 NLT)

    The jack–o–lantern comes from an Irish folk tale about a mean and stingy man named Jack who wasn’t allowed into heaven.  The Devil gave him a piece of burning coal to put in the large turnip he was eating.  He was to use this as a lantern and walk the earth until Judgment Day.    Legend says he is still walking with his lantern looking for a place to stay.  People in Ireland began carrying lights carved out of turnips to scare away evil spirits.  Children then started carving the lanterns into faces to use the night before the festival Hallows’ Day or All Souls’ Day (Halloween).  The Irish brought this custom to America but used pumpkins instead of turnips.  As believers we don’t need jack–o–lanterns to scare off evil spirits or roam the earth looking for a place to stay.  Through faith in Jesus Christ, we have the promise of heaven and know that the indwelling Holy Spirit is greater than all and casts out our fears.

  • GOOD NEWS

    Lord, “...what must I do to be saved?”  (Acts 16:30)

    I praise God for those poignant words spoken by the Philippian jailor.  Just eight simple words that have the power to change an unbeliever’s life, or more importantly, whether he spends eternity separated from God.  In these times of worldwide chaos, it’s comforting to know that we as believers have the only TRUE answer to this question.  As ambassadors of Christ, we can offer hope and comfort to a lost and dying world, simply by conveying the “Good News” of the gospel whenever and where ever the opportunity arises.  We may not all be called to be a Pastor, but we are all called to know what we believe and why we believe it  (2 Timothy 2:15).  Until that glorious day when the trumpet sounds, we must all fight the good fight every day we take a breath...Amen!

  • STEP BY STEP

    “...For the Lord will go before you...”  (Isaiah 52:12)

    Our Christian life consists of taking steps, which means we should be walking, but how?  We sing a song, “He came from heaven to earth to show the way.”  Jesus came to earth and lived the example for us to follow.  He laid the path and even gave us a map and instructions in the Bible.  So how are we walking?  As believers we know that one day we will be in heaven with Jesus.  But what about while we are here?  Our walk with the Lord doesn’t mean jumping, flying, or skipping from point A to B.  It needs to be a step by step walk of obedience everyday to Jesus and His Word!  So how have you been walking?  Think about it…

  • STOP WATERING AND IT DIES

    “You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.”  (Psalm 86:5 NIV)


    You are familiar with this law of nature.  If your grass fails to get the water it needs from rainfall or a sprinkler system, you and those observing will see the results as brown patches begin to take over.  It may even appear a lost cause, with no hope of recovery.  But, as water is turned back on and absorbed in a consistent manner, the strength of God surprises you as renewed life begins to emerge and reclaim its beauty.  So goes our life if we shut off our relationship with God and drift away from consistent time in the study of His Word, fellowship, prayer, and breaking of bread with fellow believers.  We, and those observing us, will begin to notice our life in Christ giving way to the dead pleasures of this world, maybe causing some to think we too are a lost cause  The good news is, like the brown spots of dead grass, Christ desires to restore us if we will simply call out to Him and turn back on the Living Water.

  • WAIT FOR 52 SECONDS?

    “Be still, and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10)

    Fifty–two seconds is the amount of time it takes to warm up water in the microwave for cocoa or for a cup–o–noodles.  We get so busy and so impatient that it makes it difficult to wait 52 seconds.  However, the question is have we taken at least 52 seconds to “Be Still”.  Of course, God requires more than 52 seconds.  So let’s put it into perspective and restate the question again, “have you taken 52 seconds out of a minute today to ‘Be Still and spend time with God’?”.  So as we go about our day, let’s remember the “52 second rule” because when we apply it … “He will be exalted among the nations, and He will be exalted in the earth.”

  • OUR DAILY WALK WITH GOD

    OUR DAILY WALK WITH GOD

    “I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.”  (John 15:5 NIV)

    I am reminded by my wife to continually seek God’s providence and guidance in my seemingly mundane and routine job duties, particularly when dealing with difficult people, difficult or   dangerous situations, or when a difference could be made for God.  A prayer by NYFD Chaplain, Mychal Judge, who was killed on 9/2011 while ministering to a dying fireman captures what our heart’s desire should be every day: “Lord, take me where You want me to go; Let me meet who You want me to meet; Tell me what You want me to say, and keep me out of Your way.”  With the      leading of the Holy Spirit we can hear God speaking to us, identify His activity in our lives, and know His direction.  Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”  Together lets seek God each day and follow Him.                   ~ Russell Henna ~

  • A PRIVILEGED PARTNERSHIP

    A PRIVILEGED PARTNERSHIP

    Jesus saying “Go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19), and “you shall be My witnesses” (Acts 1:8), doesn’t leave us room to view it as mere suggestion, or an ‘if we’d like to’ option.  No, He commands us to tell others of their need to be ‘born again’.  But have you ever asked why God would assign such an important task to us?  After all, He’s the Almighty with infinite ways; He could get the same thing done.  He’s got a host of angels at His disposal, not to mention maybe a fleet of chariots of fire.  Why have us do it?  God wants us to be part of the process.  While salvation is His work alone (John 3:16-17; Ephesians 2:8-9), God wants our partnership in declaring the availability of His love and forgiveness to a lost world.  Thereby granting us front-row seats to that incredible moment when a person realizes the depth of God’s love, repents, and accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Yes, God could’ve used angels to share the Gospel, but He chose you and me.  We’re given the privilege of witnessing the miracle of a life transformed.  What an awesome privilege!

  • SHEPHERD TO SHEEP

    SHEPHERD TO SHEEP

    “For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the LORD and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.”
      Ezra 7:10 NASB

    What does it mean to study the Law?  For Ezra, it meant to study the first five books of the Bible, Genesis through Deuteronomy.  For us as Christians, it means to study any and all books of the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation.  Every Sunday, we have a time of “Bible Study,” but Pastor Charles is the one who has done the real studying.  You and I are called to do the same thing, maybe not as in-depth as he does, but we are called to study on our own.  We are then to practice what we learn and whenever possible to teach it to others.  Why?  Paul tells  Timothy, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).  Get your Bible, open it up and look inside; take time to study it on your own.  Then live it and share it with others. Amen!

  • GOD DELIVERS

    GOD DELIVERS

    “Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.”  Psalm 34:14-19

    I love the simplicity of these scriptures.  First, stop doing evil.  Then, seek and follow peace.  God watches over and hears the prayers of the righteous.  God is near the wounded and repentant.  Got Problems?  Our God delivers us from them all.  That’s a promise I’ll treasure in my heart.         ~ Whitney Vellalos ~

  • CALL UPON GOD

    CALL UPON GOD

    “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.” (Psalm 91:15) 

    No matter what problems may we have, we must call upon the Lord because the answer is in the power of His Holy Spirit and in the grace of God.  Romans 8:26-27 says, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.  And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.” As we pray, we must be led by the Holy Spirit by yielding our heart, our longings, our aches and our cries to Him.  Remember that the Holy Spirit helps us to talk with God as we praise Him and intercede for others; and it is the Spirit that leads us to God’s will and helps us to be in it.

  • THE BEAUTY OF THE MOUNTAIN IS EXPERIENCED IN THE VALLEY

    THE BEAUTY OF THE MOUNTAIN IS EXPERIENCED IN THE VALLEY 

     

    “… Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John and brought them up on a high mountain by themselves.” Mark 9:2b   

     

    In this scripture setting, Jesus leads these three disciples to a special encounter and witness of His glory – His transfiguration and fellowship with Moses and Elijah.  What a remarkable occasion this must have been with enduring impact on their lives.  Has the Holy Spirit led you to an inspired mountain top experience during a special moment of worship or during the study of His Word?  If so, like Peter, perhaps you desired to just linger in the experience only to soon find yourself back in the valley of daily living.  What we do with times of enlightenment which is designed to enrich our personal relationship in Christ becomes evident in our nature.  We are not currently built just for mountain top living.  As Oswald Chambers points out, it is in the drab drudgery of the valley‖ where we are called to have our character tested and live in reflection of His glory.  The sweetness of the mountain encounter gets amplified through each victory in the valley.     ~ Pastor Dennis Dutton ~        

  • I can do ALL things - through Christ

    Without pointing to any ONE person, I feel that our current state of crisis is exactly where it should be as in the “last days” before judgment comes in accordance with the book of Revelation.
  • Forgiveness

    To forgive means “to excuse a fault” or “not to hold an offense against someone.”
  • Gardening Tips

    Let’s consider Galatians 5:22. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and self-control.”
  • God's Call To Purity Of Life

     
    We can see God if we are pure in heart. All purity begins in the heart of a Christian. In 1 John 3:20 we read, “...for God is greater than our hearts and He knows everything”.
     
  • “We Are Called To Walk Humbly"

    Ephesians 4:1 says, “walk worthy of the calling with which you were called”. What calling? We have been called to be saints, children of God by faith and heirs of salvation.
