    He is Not Here
    Because Jesus resurrected...His death is not wasted. In fact, because of Jesus' resurrection NOTHING IS WASTED...not your past, not your mistakes, not your sorrow, not your pain, not your regrets; none of it will ever be wasted...since Jesus is alive, so is our HOPE! ~ Ashton Stewart

    Not Guilt, But Grace
    When we do not receive what we deserve and when we receive a gift that we do not deserve, it ought to change who we are and it ought to change how we live. The Bible in Romans 2:4 says that “God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance.” ~Ashton Stewart

    For Our Good and God’s Glory
    None of the moments in our life are ever wasted. God's plan sometimes includes our suffering and pain. When we look at the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis, we see that whether he was the prince or in a pit, God was present. And the same is true for us in every moment we go through.

    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  Romans 8:28

    "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."  Hebrews 12:1

    Joy
    Series: The Star

    "I have the best news ever for you! Hear me out! God loves you! He loves you! God loves you right where you are! He loves you just like he loved those shepherds!  And you are special to Him. Just like the shepherds were special to Him, so special He gave them the incredible privilege of being the first to hear of Christ’s birth. He gave them, the first people besides Mary and Joseph to ever set eyes on the Son of God...

    So what do we do with this message that GOD LOVES YOU? I hope it's good news for you and I hope it's such good news that it does what the “angel of the Lord” said it would do for the shepherds. Remember what he said? He said, “I bring you good news that causes great joy!" ~ Ashton Stewart

    1 Corinthians 2:1-5 — And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

When you’re feeling defeated, know that the Holy Spirit is there to pick you up. When you’re up against the wall, know that the Holy Spirit is fighting with you. He’s present in your every trial and situation. Jesus is telling His disciples, just as I have always been with you...so too the Holy Spirit will always be with you! You’ll never be alone!!!
    I love this about the Holy Spirit...Even though we’ve been guilty of forgetting about the Holy Spirit, He never has forgotten about us." ~ Ashton Stewart

    Acts 9:17-20 17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, 19 and after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus. 20 At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God.

If you've every felt like the presence of God is the last place you ought to be because you're not religious enough...
