Hebrews 7
by Audrey Rogers on October 21st, 2020
Hebrews 7:25He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. You may have heard the work of Jesus was finished at the cross. Well, not quite. The work, in one sense, was complete, but, in another, it’s very much ongoing. This verse tells us that Jesus ever lives to make intercession for you and me. When you go to bed a...  Read More
Hebrews 6
by Audrey Rogers on October 20th, 2020
Hebrews 6:10For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. Any good bank is going to keep track of every penny you invest. They don’t get to play fast and loose with your cash. And if they can take care of all details, don’t you think God is able to do so as well? Every act of service and every labor of love a...  Read More
Hebrews 5
by Audrey Rogers on October 19th, 2020
Hebrews 5:1For every high priest chosen among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God. Prophets go to the people on behalf of God. However, priests go to God on behalf of the people. And do you know Jesus goes to God on behalf of you? That’s right! He is your high priest. He is your advocate. He is your defense attorney. He stands by your side and maintains your cause. And when...  Read More
Hebrews 2
by Audrey Rogers on October 14th, 2020
Hebrews 2:1We must pay closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. One of the podcasts I enjoy listening to is Craig Groeschel on leadership. Recently he told his listeners, “If you’re not intentionally preparing for growth, you’re unintentionally preparing for decline.” Isn’t that the truth? Unless we choose to be intentional, we will always drift towards complacency. It’s...  Read More
Hebrews 1
by Audrey Rogers on October 13th, 2020
Hebrews 1:3He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. Hebrews 1, John 1, Colossians 1, Revelation 1– All great books of the New Testament seem to open with a jaw-dropping revelation of Jesus. It’s essential we know who He is. And one of the greatest things you can enjoy is a total immersion in the Gospels: Matth...  Read More

Philemon 18-19aIf he has wronged you at all, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. I, Paul, write this with my own hand: I will repay it. You're out with a friend having a good dinner and the waiter brings you the bill. Your friend says, with a smile, “I got this one.” And you’re like, “You sure?!” He replies, “Absolutely!” and snaps his card on the table. You've been blessed! You're ou...  Read More
Titus 3
by Audrey Rogers on October 9th, 2020
Titus 3:4, 7When the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us… so that… we might become heirs. In C.S. Lewis’s children’s tale, The Horse and His Boy, he tells the story of a boy named Shasta. Shasta grew up thinking he was the son of a poor fisherman, who treated him poorly and didn’t seem to care much about him. Therefore, he just acted like a ruffian. But little did ...  Read More
Titus 2
by Audrey Rogers on October 8th, 2020
Titus 2:11-12For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age. C.S. Lewis was once asked what set Christianity apart from all the religions of the world. He said, “Oh, that’s easy, it’s grace.” In every religion, you have to earn your way. But in C...  Read More
Titus 1
by Audrey Rogers on October 7th, 2020
Titus 1:1Paul, a servant of God. Gotta love that title. Servant. What a great attitude! Servants don’t get credit. They don’t get thanked. They don’t get paid. They don’t get noticed. And if we’re serving God for any of those reasons then we’re operating out of an entitlement mentality and have missed the mark of servant. But before we are anything, we are simply God’s servants. All Christian mini...  Read More
2 Timothy 4
by Audrey Rogers on October 6th, 2020
2 Timothy 4:2Preach the Word. Have you ever listened to a preacher and realized that after 15-20 minutes Scripture has not once been referenced? Or perhaps a Scripture is read at the beginning, but it only served as a point of departure. But the clear mandate here is to preach the Word. So that means open the Word and stay with the Word. Preacher, you have nothing else to offer. If you have storie...  Read More
2 Timothy 3
by Audrey Rogers on October 5th, 2020
2 Timothy 3:16-17All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. In the beginning, God formed the man of dust and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. So thankful God breathed in us. And he continues to ...  Read More
2 Timothy 2
by Audrey Rogers on October 2nd, 2020
2 Timothy 2:24The Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome. Do you ever dream about having the right comeback? Do you ever imagine pinning your opponent to the wall? Oh, how satisfying that would be. So, in the moment you scramble for the right words, hoping to register the decisive blow. One time I can remember engaging in an argument. Let’s call it a debate. A heated debate. This person and I were...  Read More
2 Timothy 1
by Audrey Rogers on October 1st, 2020
2 Timothy 1:7For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. We’ve always told our kids not to accept gifts from strangers. Same thing applies here. If anybody but your Father in Heaven gives you something, you don’t need to receive it. And fear is at the top of the list. Just simply decline and say, “I don’t accept gifts from strangers.” But for some reaso...  Read More
