Colossians 3:13

We believe in the whole body and the importance of relationships within each church community.  Within our own church family, relationships grow deep and fruitful as we encourage transparency, and it is here that we find the gift of friendship.  In this context, Darrell shares a message on Colossians 3:13 and the admonition to “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you."

God is Holy

God is, at His core, love.  On the other hand, wrath is His careful opposition to those things in conflict with who He is, that being sin and evil. Thus, wrath, is not who He is, but what He does.  Daniel takes on a complex and uncomfortable topic, because how we view a holy God effects how we live. 

Are We Too Busy For Real Relationships?

Are our relationships suffering, because we don’t have time for them? Are we too busy for a relationship with the Father? Many of us suffer from the “hurry sickness.” We’ve bought into the lie that time is money, and so we are only as valuable as what we produce.  In this pattern, our relationships suffer—at work, at home, and, yes, at church. Phil concludes that the most important things in our lives cannot be rushed, and bottom line, God did not call us to this frantic lifestyle.  Listen to this exhortation to “eliminate hurry” and change the tempo of your life.
