Kids Have Flags Too!

Part 4: The Flags of the Spirit by Harold and Bette Gillogly Being filled with God’s Spirit is for kids too!  They don’t have to wait ‘til they’re 21 to experience the incredible joy of having the Spirit of God fill them up.  They can choose to live in  Green Flag territory instead of  the […]

The Flag We’d Rather Not Talk About

Part 2, The Flags of the Spirit by Harold and Bette Gillogly Red Flag – Stop! Something is wrong! Green Flag – You are going in the right direction.  It’s safe to keep going! These are the Flags we’ve been finding as we’ve journeyed through Ephesians, chapter 5, for as verse 15 warns us: “Be […]

The Flags of the Spirit

If you’re smart, when you see a red flag, you immediately stop and find out what it’s all about, because something’s wrong.  But when you see a green flag, that tells you you’re on the right track, so you keep going.  It makes complete sense that we begin our series on the Flags of the […]

Forgiveness – The Key to Peace

By Harold and Bette Gillogly Feelings of forgiveness do not happen in a vacuum.  We don’t wake up one morning and say, “I’m not going to feel resentment toward that person who hurt me anymore.” Shazam!  Nope.  Doesn’t happen that way. Our emotions change as we change our behavior.  We can’t simply say.  We have […]

God Says, “Forgive Like Me”

By Harold and Bette Gillogly We talked about the first kind of forgiveness in our last two blogs: “to cancel a debt, to pardon.”  Today we’re going to explore the second kind, and we want to warn you, this one is harder than the first. The second kind of forgiveness means “to relinquish resentment against […]

What Does Forgiveness Mean?

By Harold and Bette Gillogly There are two different kinds of forgiveness.  Wow! Who knew?  First, it means “to cancel a debt, to pardon or remit guilt.”  That’s probably what you always thought it meant. Right?  The second kind of forgiveness is “to relinquish resentment against the debtor.”  This second meaning is harder to understand, […]

Reconciliation Is Not Just a Nice Thought

By Harold & Bette Gillogly God commands us to be reconciled to one another.  It’s a command, not just a nice goal to think about or wish for.  Each of us is commanded to reconcile with both the one who offended us (Matthew 18:15) AND the one we offended (Matthew 523-24).  Whoa!  Even if your […]

Cure for Bitterness

Forgiveness…might just be the most beautiful word in the English language.  Since all we wrote about last month was fighting and anger, fuedin’ and fussin,’ it’s about time to talk about how to stop all that and find resolution and reconciliation.  And that’s where forgiveness comes in. You see, if we don’t forgive, the acid […]

Evil Attacks Against Marriages and Families

by Bob & Yvonne Turnbull Yes, there are evil attacks against Christian marriages and families, and the biblical proof text is found in Ephesians 6:12 – “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil […]
