The Chapel Quotes

If we are followers of Jesus there is to be no fear of death because there is eternal life on the other side of this life. Heaven’s access is found only through faith in the person of Jesus Christ. In view of eternity our afflictions are lite and momentary. Our earthly bodies are temporary and fragile, but our heavenly bodies are eternal and imperishable.”

“There is nothing we can do with respect to our own righteousness that will earn us to heaven. Believing in Jesus is our first step, not our final step. Whether we are here or in heaven we make it our aim to please God. At the end of our life on earth each of us will experience a judgement of faith and a judgement of works. Our eternal destination is determined by our faith not by our works. Our eternal destiny is determined by our works, How we spend eternity is determined by our faithfulness. What we do now determines how we spend eternity not where we spend eternity.”

“Our default destination is not heaven it is eternal separation from God, but in one moment all of that can change through a relationship with Jesus. We cannot be a people to just take our free ticket to heaven and just wait it out, we have been called to something so much bigger.

Devotion 06/04/2023
Our Devotion: “God Controls All Nature” by J.A. Rivers a professional writing student at Taylor University.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6 (NIV)

Recently my parents travelled to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with some other couples. Having vacationed there before, my mother was excited to show her friends some of the breathtaking sightseeing spots in the area. Hoping for a good outing, my mother decided to pray and ask God to provide nice weather for the trip. Every day leading up to the trip she made a habit of praying for good weather and then checking the weather online. Instead of a nice sunshine icon to greet her, she was met by a gloomy rain cloud icon. Nevertheless, my parents made the trip with their friends.

As they arrived in the Upper Peninsula, they were greeted by real rain clouds this time. When they got out of the van for lunch my mother was sharing her sentiments about the weather with the rest of the couples. Just as some of the men were telling her it was rather trite for her to bother God with small concerns, the clouds rolled away, and the sun came out. The whole trip it rained and was cloudy except whenever they got out of the car to do sightseeing, and then it would become sunny. The men, who were giving my mom a hard time earlier, conceded that maybe God does care about the little things in our lives, even it is the weather.

PRAYER: God, thank you for caring about the little things in my life. Amen.

Book Review 06/07/2023
This Book Review is by Timothy J. Steece is a professional writing major at Taylor University.

 Many people view Christianity as a “behavior” but not a lifestyle. Christianity has become an act that some people play. This book talks about how we can strengthen our spiritual cores not only to benefit ourselves, but also to benefit others. It is through transformation of our hearts, souls, and minds that we learn how to be Christians, not just impersonators of Christians.

This book is broken into two sections. The first section discusses why and how we need to transform our spiritual cores. The second section is a 31 day devotional. Each daily devotional discusses a different attribute that Christians should acquire. After discussing the attribute, the devotional provides four to five personal reflection questions to think about during the day. This easily accessible book discusses spiritual development through personal illustrations that can be understood starting at the preteen years and older.
