Health First

First Part 3 - January 15, 2017 • January 15, 2017 • Mark Rouse

Many of us aren’t happy with our bodies. We want to lose weight, stop a bad habit, or eat a healthier diet; and this is the time of year we try to do something about it. But what if the key to the physical changes we want are actually some spiritual choices we need to make? Our bodies were created not for our gratification but God’s glorification.

The Order Matters

First Part 1 - January 1, 2017 • January 1, 2017 • Mark Rouse

When a new year begins, it’s natural to evaluate the one that just ended. We measure where we are against where we want to be, and we think about what adjustments we want to make for the future. But of all the evaluations and changes we can make, there’s one we should make first: our spiritual life. Discover how to live a God-first life and get ready to experience the best spiritual year of your life. YouVersion Bible app users can access the notes here: https://www.bible.com/events/147956

Pray First

First Part 2 - January 8, 2017 • January 8, 2017 • Mark Rouse

Fifty percent of Americans pray every day, and many of us would say it’s important. But many of us struggle with prayer, and we just have this sense that there’s more to prayer than we’re currently experiencing in our lives. So what can we do? Well, we can commit to making prayer our first response instead of our last resort. We can also allow fasting to enhance our prayers. Discover some reasons why God calls us to fast and the difference it makes in our relationship with him. YouVersion Bible app users can access the notes here: http://bible.com/events/147988
