Creating Vs. Making
Posted by Ashley Ellison
When God created the world, He did so to make a place for man to dwell so that He could have fellowship with him. He created something so that He could have something. He did not rearrange things already in existence, but rather He made something new. Our human tendency is to rearrange our lives in an effort to make time/room for something else, when God may be telling us to get rid of something altogether in order to "create" a place for Him.

    Colossians Part 2
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley Ellison explores Colossians 1:3-8. In this verse-by-verse study, we learn that Epaphras took the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Colosse where they: 1) heard the Good News, 2) believed in Jesus, 3) were discipled, and 4) became faithful followers who bore good fruit. The Colossians faced many of the same cultural issues then that the church is facing today.

    Colossians Part 1
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    "Colossians Part 1" by Ashley Ellison dives into some of the issues that the church of Colosse was dealing with that our culture still deals with today. Eastern philosophy and Jewish legalism, or gnoticism, was threatening the church, and Paul addresses them head-on. We can learn from Paul's teaching that God is very near to us and not a distant God.

    Creating a Place
    Posted by Deann Daniel
    Deann Daniel uses 2 Kings 1-7 to teach us about "Creating a Place." This passage of Scripture is about the woman who was told to gather jars to fill with oil. Deann points out the fact that the oil didn't stop flowing until there was no more room for it, or until there was no longer a created place for it. God will move and flow in our lives wherever we create a place for Him to. Deann encourages us to create places in our lives for God to move.

    Posted by Ashley Ellison
