The Monkey Trap

by Andy Brenton

1 TIMOTHY 6:9-10 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

Who Sits In Your Chair?

by Andy Brenton

“Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaint. As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” (1 Peter 4:8–10).

Whip or Touch?

by Andy Brenton

TITUS 2:14 “…who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.” In these words we have two truths — what Christ has done to make us His own, and what He expects of us. In the former […]

Salt & Light Living

by Andy Brenton

MATTHEW 5:13-16 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot […]

Seeing Beyond The Outside

by Andy Brenton

1 Samuel 16:7 “…the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” Do not judge by the outward appearance: Jesus never evaluated others based on things such as their race, wealth, or age. He always looked at who a person truly was. Even though […]
