"For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God." — 2 Cor. 4:15

That describes House of Prayer, which focuses on praying in faith, through the Holy Spirit, for God’s will to be displayed among us more and more. We would love […]

Congregational Call to Prayer

Our vision is that Grace would be a church where each member is individually and corporately devoted to consistent, earnest, and expectant prayer. At our last members’ meeting we spent some time talking about how we long to grow in the areas of praying for one another and with one another. Jesus said: “If you abide in me, and my words […]

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 1 CORINTHIANS 15:17   Notice that Paul does not say “if Christ had not died upon the cross, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.” The resurrection of Jesus has huge implications for our salvation. […]

No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven – the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.” JOHN 3:13-15 Each year, Easter seems to […]

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ROMANS 15:13 What could possibly promote hope more than knowing that Jesus rose from the dead? This coming Sunday, we get reminded all over […]

In Another Part of the World…M&M

His name is Isaac. He snuck out of the house late last night to meet his friend for tea, and now he is silently climbing back into his room before the sun rises. He had seen the town slowly begin to awaken on his walk back, but his mind had been otherwise engaged in deep […]

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. ZECHARIAH 9:9 What an amazing Old Testament heads-up! An event was predicted that would elicit great joy for God’s people. A king – righteous and […]

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. HEBREWS 4:12 This coming Sunday will be a reflection service when we look to you, the congregation,  to encourage one another […]

“You will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age.” GENESIS 15:15 It is said cynically that in this life only two things are certain –  death and taxes. When Abraham’s life was still not yet half gone, God told him of his eventual passing. And 10 chapters later, […]

Then I bowed my head and worshipped the Lord… who had led me by the right way… GENESIS 24:48 The “I” speaking here is Abraham’s oldest servant. The “right way” that he mentions is the remarkable finding of a wife for Abraham’s son Isaac. And the worship flowing from a grateful heart is in response […]

The locker door slammed shut as he walked toward the team room, his hair still dripping from his shower. It had been a hot day, and the game had gone long. But Chris’ heart beat with anticipation at what awaited him and his team. This would be like no other team meeting before! Last summer, […]

All these people were still living by faith when they died. HEBREWS 11:13 ‘Til death do us part. It’s a well-known part of the marriage vows, hinting at the eventual reality of becoming a widow or widower. This coming week in our Genesis preaching series, Abraham faces the challenge of burying his 127 year-old wife […]

Some time later God tested Abraham. GENESIS 22:1 Does that verse make you tense up? We know as Hebrews tells us, that “the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” So why Abraham? And why now? Hasn’t he already been tested enough? Jon Bloom, a staff writer […]

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 CORINTHIANS 4:17 They had waited for what seemed like forever, and now, at last, Isaac was born to a very old Abraham and Sarah. This time when Sarah laughs, it is the kind of laughter that […]

Ted & Dana Witmer

The echoes of the prayers of the saints had been ringing in his mind and heart as he walked the long dark path home to his wife and eight children: prayers for revival in their war-torn land; cries to God for perseverance for all they had already endured. His mind had wandered back to that […]

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. HEBREWS 12:1-2 Remember back in Genesis […]

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? JEREMIAH 17:9 The Bible is full of examples that back up this claim. Adam and Eve, Saul, David, Uzziah, Samson, Judas, Demas. We probably don’t need the Bible to bear out this truth – our own lives have proven it to […]

“Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?” GENESIS 18:17 He didn’t, as we found out last week. God and Abraham negotiated over the point at which the city would be spared, but the righteous were too few. It was too late. The sin of Sodom had become the point at which […]

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. ACTS 17:11 Why is Luke so enthusiastic about the Berean believers? Apparently they delighted not only in the hearing of […]

Luke tells us that “at that time Mary got ready and hurried” to where Elizabeth and Zechariah lived. Wouldn’t you have loved to have been there, as the old woman Elizabeth (with John the Baptist in her womb) welcomed the girl Mary who was carrying the long-awaited Messiah inside her young virgin body? Elizabeth had […]

“Be it according to thy word.” LUKE 1:38 Mary’s permission to the angel Gabriel gave the green light for heaven’s eternal plan to proceed, ushering in an outrageously wonderful plan that only the mind of God could dream up. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy […]
