What's in Your Luggage?

baggageTravel light. It’s a lesson I am learning in my life. The more baggage we have, the more we worry and the more it slows us down. In the race of life, God has designed our path with markers along the way. He wants us to run unencumbered. He reminds us that living by faith has been modeled by a cloud of witnesses who have gone before us. They put aside the excess ‘weight’ and avoided the sins that could have so easily entangled them. Never perfect. But always persevering.

Summer Worship Schedule

"Timeless" Truth #100 - by Ben Brown


Well, this is it. When Pastor John asked me to put some thoughts together for Emmanuel’s website, I didn’t realize we would reach this point in time. I doubt if Pastor John did either. I trust that these various thoughts have pointed you to a deeper, more exacting faith in God’s Word. It is so important to understand specifically what He said in the original dictated languages. We must be ever wary of translations into our language that they do not add or subtract from the original text. It is not an easy task to capture rich Hebrew and Greek words into English. J.B.Phillips once said that his work in translation was akin to rewiring a house with the power still on.
