FAITH in Father

Misconceptions about the Father and His love for and approval of us cost us greatly!
FAITH in FATHER  Our minds seem to be clear on this: we serve ONE God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The Father and Son and Spirit are One in love and focus and purpose a… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2016/09/faith-father/

FAITH in Headship

This is not an easy read. But it is a critically important one, so that we can collectively reject some of the most wicked spirits at war with the Church and our church!
FAITH in Headship What I am about to share with you is not easy or pleasant and comes with the sobering realization that there will be a price to pay…  However, as the Shepherd … http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2016/08/faith-headship/

Small Group FAITH

Small Groups have always been one of the most effective ways to be saved--and to grow in holiness--that God has given to us.
Small Group FAITH I shared last Sunday that I am beginning a sermon series on “Sowing for an Awakening.”  I think most all of us would agree that the Church in America—and the N… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2016/04/small-group-faith/

Christians are not called to put on a show for God; we are invited to connect with His Heart for the World!
Travailing FAITH My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you. (Gal 4:19KJV) There is something deep inside every one of us that wants to… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2016/04/travailing-faith/

FAITH to Walk Alone

Sometimes, walking by FAITH means walking alone...
Sometimes, walking by FAITH means walking alone.  When God first called Paul into ministry, He showed him how much he would suffer for Jesus’ sake (Acts 9:16).  Years later, Pa… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2016/02/faith-walk-alone/

Holy Days

What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of what's in our hearts...And should therefore be Holy!
Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated?  But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they de… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2015/11/holy-days/

The Truth about Deception

We live in a time when Deceiving spirits are manifesting and multiplying. Here is how we survive this onslaught...

There is way too much deceitful misuse of the Word of God. We are a church that is trying hard to not allow it here...

Arise, Remnant!

God has always protected a remnant during times of trial. He is lifting us up as part of His remnant especially for the sake of the People called Methodist...!
So the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, as a hut in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.  Unless the Lord of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, we … http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2015/08/arise-remnant/

Even as Joseph moved in ever-higher levels of obedience, the Lord is calling us to do likewise.
Merry Christmas!  If you are like me, this time of year always brings a child-like excitement with it.  If you are like me, this time of year always comes too quickly and ends too… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2014/12/gift-obedience/

Fast Food or Thanksgiving?

There are some profound differences between sharing a Thanksgiving meal as compared to grabbing a quick bite to eat at a fast-food joint...
I am writing this on Wednesday afternoon, and I can’t seem to get food off of my mind… Still, have you ever thought about the difference between fast-food and a Thanksgiving me… http://livingstonfirstchurch.com/blog/2014/11/fast-food-or-thanksgiving/
