Sanctification: by Charles Willner
We must agree that the holiness of God is without dispute. Therefore, in order for us to live with such a holy God throughout eternity, the Holy Spirit must be allowed to sanctify us. "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Thessalonians 5:23)
The Wise Build: By Fern Willner
Originally prepared notes for in-church seminars, this teaching is an expansive study of how we can choose to build our lives, our homes, our churches and the Body of Christ in a committed and intentional pursuit of choosing to use our hands to build what is Godly and refuse to participate in using our own hands to tear down. What does this practically mean? This is a great study to start to learn what this means for us individually.
What is Your Bread?: By Fern Willner
What are we daily consuming? Do we constantly rehash our injustices? our hurts? our failures? The Word of God references many kinds of "Daily Bread", but what we consume will determine the course of our lives, what will build us up or destroy our futures, families and vision. This is an excellent article that brings many often used excuses and fears to the fore and victoriously banishes them with the power of the truth of the Word of God: the One who is the Bread of Life.
Principles For Living: By Fern Willner
Malachi's prophecy of God turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to the fathers couldn't seem more appropriate than it did then. It seems in today's age relationships are suffering more than ever with electronics taking ever more of our attention and time. It is good to know that God had a plan then and His plan is still true today. In this article, Fern reminds us not just what are the biggest destroyers of our relationships are, but that the truths of the Word of God in identifying what heals and strengthens what has been broken are just as simple and as effective at building new life as when they were first spoken.
Illusion or Reality: By Fern Willner
Trying to live by an illusion makes us sick. God calls us to walk by faith not by sight and our trials are often not what they seem. So how do we maintain a God reality in a world of illusion? We know that through all, God wants to give us a vision of joy.
