Monday Fast

In Prayer Requests,Quick Thought on December 17, 2012 by The Spillover

Quick thought: for those fasting today, consider including the families affected by the shooting in Newtown, CT, and the community as a whole in your targeted prayers.

Some prayer points:

  • That hurt people would turn to God and to the church for answers to their questions
  • That God would prepare hearts and soften them to the gospel message
  • That the area churches would be Christ’s hands and feet and inject themselves into the thick of it
  • That the God of Comfort would grant peace to those affected
  • That our enemy, his forces, and his plans would be rebuked

How to Waste Knowledge and Faith

In Perspective,Quick Thought,Scripture on October 13, 2011 by The Spillover

If I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to move mountains, but I have not love, I am nothing.

-1 Corinthians 13:2


Your Turn

In Quick Thought on October 9, 2011 by The Spillover

I was unable to make it to the service this morning.
So I didn’t get to hear Dave’s sermon.
So I can’t write a post about it.
BUT…you can.
I need someone to write a blog post with some insight, ideas, thoughts, feedback, or anything else on your heart regarding today’s message.
Don’t be shy!
Who’s it gonna be?
Email me at
It doesn’t have to be anything electrifying…just honest.


Start Here

In Perspective,Quick Thought,Soul Food on October 4, 2011 by The Spillover

The realization that God not only provided a way (at His own expense) for us to be reconciled to Him, but that He also chose each individual believer to be the benefactor of His sacrifice, is the heart of authentic joy, worship, and mission. Once this truth takes up residence in our hearts, wonder and amazement fill us to the top until pure worship spills over and shapes a longing to be obedient to God and to see Him glorified. Intentionally seeking God’s glorification will effectively calibrate one’s entire life and align it to God’s original intention in creating us. But the seed from which a fruitful life grows is utter amazement at the fact that God first chose us. If you’ve found the Christian life to be a bit hollow, stop, go back, and make sure you’ve grasped the enormity of this truth.

A little brain candy from Jon Acuff:

What an ineffective communicator Jesus was by our modern standards of platform building.

He could have spoken to hilltops of thousands of people each night, but instead he wasted time at dinner with a handful of tax collectors and strangers.

Want to change the world? It’s easy.

Have a long, time-wasting, friendship-generating dinner with someone.
