Q: Can you think of someone you really admire or aspire to be like? What is it about that person that stands out to you?   Scripture: Phil 4:1-9 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends! 2 I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life. 4 Rejoi ..read more

Philippians 4:14-16 14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles. 15 Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; 16 for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need.   Philippians 3:17-20  17 Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we ..read more

Our Partners: Discovery Community Care Southern Cross Kids Camp G&J EFICOR “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21 ESV How do we live?  To live is self, to die is loss. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money…” 2 Timothy 3:1-2 Live for something bigger than yourself, Paul defines his life as a partner of the Gospel.  If dying is seen as loss, it is because you live for self and not for Jesus. Without God, death is seen as the end of self. The post Living for Jesus appeared fi ..read more

Psalm 42:1-5 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One[d] with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng. Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. What is the middle? Ty ..read more
