filled | strengthened | thankful: a prayer for all believers
The Colossian Church was being was being exposed to false teaching, and Paul continuously prayed that they would be filled the knowledge of God’s will, so that they would walk in a worthy manner. He also prayed that they would be strengthened by God’s might, so that they could patiently endure with joy. Lastly, he prayed that they would be thankful to God the Father for all that He has done in their lives. These are the types of things that we need to pray continuously for ourselves and for our church. 
Scripture: Colossians 1:9-12

    Mothers Who Live By The Book
    The most important thing a mother, or any woman, should do is  live out the Word of God in such a way that she honors God. As a godly mother does this, she will lead her family right, love her family right, and honor the Word of God with her lifestyle. May we all, as believers, press into God's Word daily, and may we be changed more into Christ's likeness.

    Strength For The Journey Pt.4
    Series: UNITY
    As Paul closed his final exhortations to the Philippians, he explained that God’s exhortation affirms Christ-centered thinking instead of worldly thinking. These exhortations were intended to encourage the believers to practice them in the public arena. May we point people closer to Jesus by the way the think and act according to God's Word.
    Scripture: Philippians 4:8-9

    Strength For The Journey Pt. 3
    Series: UNITY
    As Paul continued to exhort the Philippians, he instructed them to not worry. He told them that prayer and the peace of God were cures for worry. Worrying can have drastic effects on our physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional health. May we run to God in times of worry and pray with a spirit of thanksgiving. As we trust in His control, may His peace surpass our understanding.
    Scripture: Philippians 4:6-7

    The Pearl Beyond The Gates
    As Jesus continued His parables in Matthew 13, He detailed the salvation experiences of two types of people. Even though we may have different salvation experiences, we all have the same salvation story. We were once dead in sin and Christ has made us alive in Him. Upon receiving salvation, we are promised great rewards, and Jesus is the greatest of those rewards. The greatest aspect of Heaven is not the "mansions," the streets of gold, or the family reunions, but the greatest aspect of heaven is the presence of Jesus. When we realize that, we will live our lives in pursuit of Jesus because while we're waiting, we're not waiting. Jesus lives in us.
    Scripture: Matthew 13:44-46

    Resurrection: Hoax Or History?
    Jesus' death and resurrection are the most significant events in human history. If Jesus had not risen in bodily form, then we would have no hope of salvation. This Sunday we looked that the historical evidence supporting the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. We do not follow Jesus out of ignorance of history, rather, if we look at the evidence, we will see that it overwhelmingly supports the fact that Jesus rose from the grave. May this confidence give us boldness to share the Good News with others.
    Scripture: I Corinthians 15:12-19

    The Agony Of Love
    This Sunday, we looked in depth at the pain and suffering Jesus endured during the last hours of His life. We learned about traditional Roman crucifixions and what would have actually taken place during those moments from a historical and medical perspective. As we remember the great depth to which Christ loved us, may our hearts and lives be changed. May we be willing to share that great love with others.

    Strength For The Journey Pt. 2
    Series: UNITY
    As Paul continued his exhortations to the Philippian Church, he encouraged them to rejoice in the Lord always. The world is looking at how Christians react in difficult circumstances. May we respond with gentleness when face with harsh situations, and may we look to Jesus as our source for joy in the trials. Through our reactions, we can show the greatness of Jesus to everyone.
    Scripture: Philippians 4:4-5

    Strength For The Journey Pt.1
    Series: UNITY
    As Paul began this final section in his letter to the Philippians, he wanted to leave them with some exhortations. Paul encouraged the people to stand firm in unity instead of division. God uses exhortations to equip his children to be victorious in the journey of life. May we regard others as more important than ourselves and represent Christ well by how we work together for Christ's sake.
    Scripture: Philippians 4:1-3

    Immeasurable Treasure
    In Matthew 13, Jesus tells many parables about the kingdom of heaven. The parable in verse 44 is a beautiful picture of the worth and majesty of Jesus Christ. He is the immeasurable treasure worth giving up everything for. May we see Jesus as that treasure and dig in His Word every day to see more of His worth and beauty. As we fall more in love with Jesus, may we show others the wonderful Treasure that is Jesus Christ.
    Scripture: Matthew 13:44
