Generosity

Generosity

In 2 Corinthians 9:8-15, the apostle Paul talks about generosity as an important element of God’s character. In fact, taking care of the poor, the hungry, and the needy is one of the many ways we are able to get closer to the heart of God. Through our generous acts, we become the literal hands […]

Worship

We love to worship at Ascension. Our sanctuary is a sight to behold, our pastors are gifted in speaking the Word of God, our worship team and musicians are talented beyond measure, and our congregational atmosphere is warm and welcoming. But in the midst of it all, true worship doesn’t just happen within the walls […]

Growth

Growth

Times may be crazy right now, but how are you responding to this craziness? God would of course like us to grow during this time, practicing patience, self-control, and obedience, essentially maturing as believers. But with no end in sight to the craziness, it is becoming rather difficult to keep up these traits. It is […]

Confidence

A recent article published by the University of Minnesota states that the United States has now “crested 4.5 million cases” of the COVID-19 virus, and that “the rising case counts have led to an erosion of American confidence”. In this time, it is common for us all to experience feelings of discouragement, worry, fear, and […]

Gratefulness

Gratefulness

As COVID-19 continues to be ever on our minds, the idea of giving thanks with glad and optimistic hearts has been somewhat lessened of late.

Our Good Shepherd

Tomorrow marks the Fourth Sunday of Easter, also known as “Good Shepherd Sunday”. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And […]

Praise

Praise

How are you praising God in these strange times? Even apart from the literal absence of physical worship, it can be difficult to raise our hearts, minds, and voices to praise our Father when the world around us is in a state of gloominess and despair. It is important to remember that praise is not […]

Gentleness

How strong are you in these difficult times? Is your heart heavy? We certainly need all of the strength we can get, but did you know that gentleness is understanding the source of that strength, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord? We are His instruments, intended to responsibly wield the Spirit’s power humbly and […]

Gentleness
Kindness

Kindness

In Colossians, Paul says, “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience (Colossians 3:12). Jesus showed the ultimate kindness on the cross, and as His children, we are to be kind to others. It is an expression of love that breaks the emotional barrier and becomes […]

Goodness

God’s goodness is with us Ascension! He keeps His promises, and our endurance comes from having confidence in Him alone. In the 31st Psalm, David states, “How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge […]
