Offering

In a classic biblical story one of the "Hothead" brothers became exhibit "A" of the upside down kingdom. And the way it happened is the way it still does.

Have you ever failed at something really important to you? Ever heard of failing successfully? Learn this lesson and you've gained the key to possessing an inner quiet of soul that no person, task, risk or disappointment can shake.
06/07/2008
There's a character trait of sanctification that we're never invited in Scripture to pray for directly, but to work out on our own. At the intersection of two powerful biblical stories, discover the formula for achieving this essential trait, and prayer language appropriate to the occasion.
06/14/2008
The two morally crisscrossing tales make the vital point. And it's driven home by the secret chapter of the second tale that reveals a hard pathway that we want very much not to travel but which leads to an outcome that we very much want.
06/21/2008
Ever thought of the Almighty God as the most humble being in the universe? If it's true, maybe that's why humility in His children is such a big deal to Him. Consider a one-line formula guaranteed to expel personal pride and self worship.

Offering for February 24, 2024

Michigan Advance Partners

When Kelly received a Discovering Revelation handbill in her mailbox, she knew it was from the Lord. “I had been lost for quite a while and needed guidance—and that was my ticket,” she explained. When asked what she appreciated about the meetings she said, “They’re riveting! It’s basically laying out Revelation unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”

She went on to describe how welcoming the church family was: “They’ve made me feel like I’ve been here all my life. People shake my hand, and they take the time to welcome me to their church and I’m not even a member! But I will be by the time I’m done. I’ve found my home.”

Kelly’s testimony is wonderful, but far from unique. Evangelistic outreach takes place across the Michigan Conference each year and time and again, people have the same experience Kelly had at Discovering Revelation.

Today’s offering goes to support Michigan Advance Partners, 33.33% of which supports Conference evangelism. Please give generously to help others like Kelly find their home, too.
