…spend time with Jesus to become like Jesus? (ask Jonah)

15 While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them.                                                                                                                               -Luke 24:15 ESV


Be Thou My Vision traditional.



3 And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.                                                                                          -1 John 2:3-6 ESV


Satisfied in You written by Brian Eichelberger.


… the weight of keeping God’s law and commands is impossibly heavy, but hear God’s promise:

10 fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.                                                -Isaiah 41:10 ESV

This promise has complete and effective fulfillment in Jesus’ triumph… he himself is God’s righteous right hand, strengthening you, helping you, and upholding you in the face of trials and temptation! Hallelujah!

Come and See written by Whitney Bozarth.


The dissonance of selfishness and pride that once hung unresolved in our relationships with God and each other is being resolved by our patient, tender, and loving heavenly father through Christ Jesus our Lord! Church, let’s enjoy what God has done for us and proclaim it to each other as we take a few moments to greet one another 🙂



Like Jesus written by Daniel Dabney.

Closer Walk With Thee traditional.


May spending time with Jesus excite you, enchant your dull senses once again to his truth, beauty and goodness that you may have life and have it to the fullest. May you leave feeling empowered to grow, confident and unafraid in the safe arms of Jesus, and enjoy the potency of the word as you sew the seeds of God’s kingdom. Go now in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you!
