The Attitude of Apollos

by Chris Grimbilas

We can always learn more of the Lord. There are too many of us as Christians who feel as if we know more than others, more than the deacon, more than the pastor. Yet, we can always learn more about the Lord, and about the things of God. Acts 18:24-26 And a certain Jew named […]

The Battles of Life

by Chris Grimbilas

Everyone faces battles in life, and, when you come right down to it, no one likes to lose. Often, however, we fight battles we don’t necessarily have to fight, or we don’t give these battles our best shot – whatever the reason is. So if we fight battles in life, what is the best battle […]

Coming Out Victorious

by Chris Grimbilas

In Psalm 100 God talks about coming before Him. How we approach the Lord is the key to coming out victorious. Psalm 100:1-5 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is […]

Be Part of the Solution

by Chris Grimbilas

Some people just love to complain. If there was nothing good to complain about, they would find something bad to complain about. They just like to complain. Moses dealt with it for 40 years as Israel wandered in the wilderness and we still deal with it today. We deal with it in our jobs. Every […]

Who Will Stand Up For Me?

by Chris Grimbilas

Every once in a while, we all feel as if life beats us up a little. We might feel like others are trying to trip us up. We might feel as if we are slipping up. We might feel pressured. All those are parts of life, often parts of life that we do not want […]

What We Deserve

by Chris Grimbilas

Sometimes when bad things happen to folks, and they have not always been on the up and up, we tend to use the phrase, “they got what they deserved?” Well think about this…..what is you really got what you deserved? What if all the sin were piled up and examined and you got all that […]

Playing Hide and Seek

by Chris Grimbilas

Did you ever play hide and seek as a kid? Someone would close their eyes and count. You would run and hide, trying to make yourself invisible to the one who was seeking to find where you had hidden yourself. Sometimes, we want to do that with God….just disappear someplace where He will not see […]

Why Church?

by Chris Grimbilas

In my Bible reading today in Psalm 73, I was reminded of the importance of church. Too many people have written off attending church. They want to know the Lord. They may even want the blessings of God. The challenge is that they do not realize the one of the major keys to both of […]

Loaded With Benefits

by Chris Grimbilas

As I read my Bible this morning, I stumbled upon this reminder of how good the Lord is unto us. Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. Here are just some of the thoughts regarding the benefits that God loads us up with […]

Guide Me!

by Chris Grimbilas

Years ago, Michelle and I had the privilege of taking the kids to the Grand Canyon. While we were there, they had a “Junior Ranger Program” that the kids could do for free. It included a guided tour of a portion of the Canyon. We had a lot of fun and learned some amazing things […]
