Article: Ticket to Heaven – Shawn Tompke — December 4th, 2014

“That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.”                                     -1 John 1:3-4 ESV Jesus didn’t come to get us to heaven. This seems odd but it is the truth. Jesus didn’t come to earth in a body, live the perfect life, die on a cross and rise again so you could go to heaven. It is true that heaven is where we are heading, if we have placed our faith and confidence in the man Jesus Christ. But his coming to us is much more than just that. Jesus being our passport to heaven is how the Gospel is portrayed in much of the church and it is resulting in a lot of lukewarm Christians that are complacent in their walk with God. They aren’t full of joy and spreading the good news […]

Article: Living Out the Great Commission – Donovan Littlejohn — November 20th, 2014

“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen”                                        -Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV I have always been compelled by last words of Jesus to His disciples, and the weight and importance they carry; “Go therefore…”, and the very clear call to action those two words instill. But then the counterpoint to that is seeing how few people actually “Go” from the body. Understand, I am not condemning in any way, shape or form, but hoping to shape a thought based on my own experiences.   Throughout my early years pursuing Christ, the overarching teaching I encountered concerning the Great Commission always made it seem as if this was only and exclusively for […]

Article: Cultivating a Watchful Spirit — Jerry Marek — April 11, 2014

“Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” -Matthew 24:42 NKJV Throughout my early years pursuing Christ, the prevailing teaching I encountered concerning the second coming of Christ was very apathetic. My teachers emphasized our inability to know the day of the Lord, while also claiming our energy should not be spent preparing for His coming. Biblically, the call is quite the opposite from what many of my teachers have emphasized. Jesus teaches us to watch because we do not know the hour of His coming. His appearing is most certainly coming! With every passing day this devotion called watchfulness becomes more essential. I for one am contending for the day when it becomes a reality that the majority of Jesus’ disciples are hearing His words and taking great care to obey them. If cultivating a watchful spirit requires us to know His Word, then we must also become a student of the Scriptures. The signs in the earth only point to the coming of Christ in context to the […]
