    Overcome Fear
    In Paul's second letter to Timothy, he reminds him that God has not given us a spirit of fear. He has enabled us to overcome fear by remaining faithful to the work He has called us to do. We can do that by being an encouragement to each other as the Body of Christ. May we spur each other on in accomplishing the works God has for us as a church and individually.
    Scripture: II Timothy 1:1-7

    Good Preparation
    We have a forgetting problem. We often forget where we came from, and we forget the life that Christ rescued us out of. If don't remember who we once were, we won't be prepared for the life we were meant to live. As we look to Christ and remember all that He did to bring us out of our depravity, then we can effectively accomplish the good work that He has for us.
    Scripture: Titus 3

    I’ll Never
    When God spoke to Moses through the burning bush, He explained how He specifically wanted to use Moses to deliver His people from the bondage of Egypt. Moses gave every excuse as to how he could never be the one to accomplish this. We must trust God that when we calls us to do something, He will help give us the strength and abilities to accomplish His purpose.

    Good Mentorship
    As Paul was writing to Titus, he was instructing him to continue the mission by passing on the life, work and teachings of Jesus Christ to others. Not only was he communicating this to Titus, but he was telling the men and women to pass these on to younger people in the church. The church is most effective when everyone takes part in discipling others rather than leaving it up to the lead pastor on a Sunday morning.
    Scripture: Titus 2:15

    Good News
    As a church we cannot continue in this good work without the Good News. We are constantly exposed to people or sources in social media that try to discredit the truths of the Bible. As we expound the truths of God's Word and share His gospel, we can effective help extinguish these lies. May we be a church that exalts the gospel and the Person of the gospel!
    Scripture: Titus 1:10-2-15

    Good Leadership
    In the first chapter of Titus, Paul instructs Titus on what qualities to look for when appointing elders or overseers. These qualities are remarkably unremarkable in that each believer should also exhibit those qualities. May we continue to grow daily and be transformed into Christ's image.
    Scripture: Titus 1:5-16

    Gospel. Church. Kingdom.
    As Paul was writing to Titus, he was giving him instructions on how to best lead the church at Crete to continue the good work that began there. He reminded Titus that the gospel must be the foundation for any church and that there is a greater mission to accomplish by sharing that with others. As a church, our mission must be the same, even during transition.
    Scripture: Titus 1-3

    Redemption’s Road
    In the book of Ruth we see a beautiful story of pain and redemption. We get a glimpse of the bitterness and sweetness of God's providence. Underneath it all God was furthering His plan of redemption for all of mankind. God used Boaz' redemption of Ruth and her lineage to give us and the people of Israel a small picture of the greater redemption that would be found in Jesus Christ.
    Scripture: Ruth

    Painful Providence
    In the book of Ruth, we see a group of women faced with many choices. Both Ruth and Naomi had different outlooks on their situation. Ruth saw the goodness of God and wanted to follow Him. Naomi saw God's dealings as bitter. How will we respond to pain and tragedy in our lives? Will we devote our lives to God, or will we allow our past to keep us from seeing His gracious and loving providence over our lives?
    Scripture: Ruth 1:1-18
