Private: Encouraging Words

Genesis 12:13 “(Lie for me) so that my life may be spared.” Those words from Abram have always sent chills down my spine. Here we have Abram and Sarai in Egypt. They have set out on a journey of faith from Ur of the Chaldeans. In their slow, steady walk...

Genesis 12:4 “Abram went, as the LORD had told him.” The Hebrew word used that is translated “went” is “Halack”. It literally means, “Walk”. Traditional Jewish chronology places Abram’s birth in the Spring of 1812 BC. That means he and Sarai set out on their journey about...

James 1:17 (ESV) “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”  In 2019, we are making consistency a major theme for Faith Community Church. This past year God...

Genesis 8:1 “God remembered Noah”   There are no words in Scripture that can give us more comfort than Genesis 8:1 when we understand what is being said. Noah and his family had endured 40 days and 40 nights of rain. In all, 5 months passed before the ark landed...
