Like the need to be rooted, as we walk out our faith while standing on a firm foundation. Join the group […]

    Keep walking

    The Bible is filled with analogies that use “walking” as a word picture. Whether it’s walking in wisdom, walking in the spirit, or walking in the light, it seems like that kind of movement is key. Because faith is never static! Today on Discover the Word, we reveal how a spiritually healthy Christian keeps walking! That’s […]

    Grace: Accepting God’s Gift to You

    Ephesians 2 uses the phrase “dead in your sins.” But what does that really mean? Dead means lifeless, powerless, inanimate. It means we were incapable of doing anything to change our situation. But God is loving and merciful, and He chose to give us new life. That’s the beauty of His grace—we’ve done nothing to […]

    “Rooted in Christ”

    Who doesn’t like trees? They offer both beauty and shade and are a critical part of the environment. And it’s striking how often the Bible uses trees as a metaphor in communicating spiritual truth. This week on Discover the Word, we will begin a study called “Rooted in Christ.” With trees, healthy roots are essential […]

    Prayer is a privilege

    When we’re not in a good place spiritually, prayer can seem like drudgery. So, do we stop praying? Today on “Discover the Word,” we discuss how our access to God is not based on what we’ve done or how we feel, it’s based on Christ. How understanding that we have an “all-access” pass to God can make prayer a privilege, not a burden, is what we’ll discover today on “Discover the Word”!

    Do you ever feel like no one understands or cares about your situation? Or they do care, but they’re powerless to help? Today on Discover the Word, we reveal how Jesus is the one Person we know who both cares and can help. And it’s why we can come boldly to His throne of grace, finding help in time of need. That’s our subject today on Discover the Word!

    “Our sufficiency is from God”

    On July 4, the U.S. will celebrate Independence Day. But today on “Discover the Word,” the group will talk about how, as individual believers in Christ, we can celebrate Dependence Day.
