It Was A Water Commercial

Written by Sarah Comer

I was watching a commercial when a line jumped out at me. “Changing our direction from where we go to where we gather.”

I was so caught in that one line, I have no idea what the commercial was even advertising.

Changing our direction from where we go to where we gather.

I think I’m so caught in that line because it tells a part of my story so eloquently – a story that I’m not sure I’ve been able [...]

All Things New

Written by Erik Gernand

“He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new.’” – Revelation 21:5 

The story of the Bible ends with an incredible scene. After several chapters describing the trouble we face in the world as the old order of sin and death loses its grip on the world, we come to the end and find a proclamation that everything is being made “new.” 

New. 

The re-making of everything “new” is a concept that’s a little hard to grasp. We know what [...]

Thanksgiving Offering

As followers of Christ, we are all called to be ambassadors of the Kingdom throughout the world. And through the global Church of the Nazarene, you are doing exactly that. Not only are you showing Christ’s love to your neighbors locally, but you are also showing it to those thousands of miles away. When we give to the Thanksgiving Offering, we are supporting the actions of Nazarenes loving others in Christ’s name, truly making Christlike disciples in all nations. This [...]

Past Appearances

Written by Erik Gernand

The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. – 1 Samuel 16:7b

The time had come for Samuel to appoint a new king over Israel. Israel’s first king, Saul, a towering man, and a natural born leader, hadn’t worked out. So, God sent Samuel to anoint one of Jesse’s boys.

When Samuel gets to Jesse’s home, they call for the boys, who line [...]

Wait on the Lord

Written by Erik Gernand

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. – Psalm 27:14

Waiting is hard.

Ashley (my wife) and I were watching a magic show on Netflix the other day where the magician took several children through the “Marshmallow Test.” Maybe you’ve seen it. You bring a child into a room and sit her in front of a plate with a marshmallow on it. If the child can wait for ten minutes without eating [...]
