MOUNTAIN MOVERS By Alf Collins Hebrews 11:1-2 (NKJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. In Matthew 17:20 Jesus refers to faith the size of a mustard seed. The reference to the mustard seed is in itself irrelevant, and so is the size. The point Jesus was making to His disciples is that faith can be activated even in the most extreme of situations. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Having faith in the...

UNDIGNIFIED By Alf Collins 2 Samuel 6:22a (NKJV) And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight… Worship is the most profound medium of fellowship with the Father.

Life in the Spirit is not and never will be based on happiness. As much as happiness is a positive uplifting experience, it’s flawed by earthbound short-sightedness. Matthew 6:31-34 (NKJV) “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’...

…AND SO IT BEGINS By Alf Collins 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. NEW SEASONS BRING new challenges. Schedules are drawn up, relevant work projects are allocated for the coming months, and priorities put into place. Needless to say, this time in our lives places emphasis on importance. Added to the pressures of all that planning is squeezed tight the challenge of making space and time in our lives for both loved ones and home life. Finding the right...
