Speak words that build up, bringing LIFE to life!

Ephesians 4:29

Ephesians 4:29 says, "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear."

Do you handle other peoples reputations gently? Do you handle their failures gently or are you quick to point them out, to make fun of and to put down? When you see somebody else stumble, do you leap on it like a lion enjoying the next meal, or when you see somebody stumble is your heart broken? Live Gently. Speak words that build up, bringing life to life! - Dr. Drew Shofner

Can you imagine yourself free?

Let me write your story.

Can you imagine for yourself anything more that where you are now? Can you imagine anything else more than the addiction? Can you imagine anything else more than your unhappiness? Can you imagine anything else more than searching for that next empty person to try to fill your heart?

Can you imagine yourself free?

I can. "Let me write your story," God says. - Dr. Drew Shofner

We spend far too long grieving losses, instead of celebrating blessings.

Poor in spirit

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:3

Blessed refers to a deep joy of the soul; it overwhelms all of the darkness, all of the loss, all of the grieving and all of the woundedness. Scripture says to be Blessed means we get to live in an unstoppable hope.

The poor in spirit are those who feel, sense and experience their brokenness and who cast themselves completely on God's grace. You and I are called to live believing that God has esteemed us, that we are blessed. We spend far too long grieving losses, instead of celebrating blessings. - Dr. Drew Shofner

Refuse to live in darkness when you have been offered His light!

refuse to I've in darkness

Repentance is an invitation of hope to begin again; to start over and to not let anything keep you from becoming who God has called you to be. 

Matthew 4:16 says, “…the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” 

The problem with the dark is that you get used to it. Accept the invitation out of darkness and into His wonderful light. -Dr. Drew Shofner

Saved people serve people!

Go after bracelet

Saved people, serve people - Real disciples are passionate about serving, about helping others in humility for Jesus' sake; pride and ego are out the window. I am so proud of so many of you as you serve the Kingdom here through the church on Sunday morning and in so many other ways. Every life is of infinite worth.

Guys, until every boy and girl, every man and woman in our county has a growing personal relationship with Jesus Christ, our work is not finished! -Dr. Drew Shofner.
