Our Intentions

Today’s Scripture: Mark 7: 15 – “There is nothing outside the man which can defile him if it goes
into him; but the things which proceed out of the man are what defile the man.”


“Where’s The Fire?”

“That is why I am reminding you to keep the fire of God’s spiritual gift burning” (2 Tim. 1:6).Even while serving the Lord with his usual exuberance, Paul attempts to spur young Timothy, who may have pulled back because of his detractors at Corinth. It’s a reminder of the man who awoke from a sound sleep to find a fireman in his room pulling him from the bed.


Something We Must Not Love: Sleep

Ponder: Too much of a good thing?

Scripture: “Do not love sleep, lest you come to poverty; Open your eyes, and you will be
satisfied with bread” (Proverbs 20:13, NKJV).
Everyone needs to sleep. That’s the way God created us. Babies sleep a great deal; as we
age, we may find it difficult to sleep. As Jesus and the disciples were crossing the Sea of
Galilee, a terrible storm arose that threatened to swamp the boat, “but He (Jesus) was asleep” (Matthew 8:24). Considering His relentless work of preaching and healing, is it any wonder
Jesus needed sleep?
