Give Thanks In Faith

How do you beat anxiety, depression, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.)?  The attitude of gratitude is a powerful pill against viruses of all kinds. Give Thanks Thanksgiving is more than a one-time holiday during the year. Biblically, we’re to give thanks consistently to the Lord. One verse that I repeatedly come back to is Psalm […] Read More

A Heart To Give

Oftentimes, pastors are reluctant to talk about giving because of the way culture has taught us to think about money. Culture talks about giving in manipulative, coercive, and guilt-laying ways. But as many of you know, at Skyline we don’t shy away from hard topics. We’re dedicated to teaching the relevance of Scripture in truth […] Read More

Are You Willing To Forgive?

Even in the most perfect of relationships, there are going to be conflicts. You’re never going to agree on everything with someone, even if they are your best friend. My wife, Janie, doesn’t like country music. THAT represents a major sin in her life! And … I forgive her for that. There are a thousand […] Read More

An Invite Can Change A Life

What is Salvation and How Does Someone Get It? Salvation is very simply the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Jesus Didn’t Journal

This is a very good article on the different ways an introvert or an extrovert have “devotional” time. There is not necessarily one way. I think the most interesting point of the article is when the author states, “We all primarily see the world through our own lens. The problem is, especially in this area […] Read More
