Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

If you want your child to love the church

If you want your child to grow up in the church and love the church - love the church. Don’t send them off to Sunday School or children’s church. Show them how you love to worship God.

– John Piper, Raising Children Who Hope in the Triumph of God

This quote is the tag line on all the emails I send out for the NCFIC. I fond it on an old message I had from Mr. Piper. It is very fitting with our mission here at the NCFIC.
