This site is provided for the mutual encouragement and edification of the CHPC and FPVR congregations. Please feel free to post on any page of the site, …or daily as you read these devotionals. Keep it positive, uplifting, and encouraging and your post/comment will be ‘public’ for all to enjoy.
There are only two things on earth that are eternal. Know what they are? …the Word of God and the souls of men and women. In light of that, consider all the things we do and places we invest our time. …convicting, right?
The prayer behind each of these devotionals is that you will benefit from the time spent in the Word of God, be encouraged and sharpened, and enabled to encourage others. Hopefully, the ‘Exposition’ will help you to consider the Word deeply and soak it into your heart and life. But if these words from men and women get in the way, spend your time in the Scriptures offered. May the Word bear a present and an eternal fruit in your life.
The second part of that prayer is that you will be encouraged and able to encourage others, not sentimentally or emotionally, but deeper –spiritually and at the heart level. Hopefully, you will be led by the Spirit to offer some of your encouragement to others through the “Comments” section on each page. As both congregations progress through the month together, may God’s Word sharpen us and may our comments/responses shared encourage us and build us up together.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
