Ark Pondering….
Why We Go to Church on Sunday
Quote from Mark Allan Powell, Theology Professor:
“This hour is for adoring God, for praising Jesus Christ, for giving thanks to our Lord who is good to us. That is why we are here. That is what we have come to do. If you get blessed, it’s a bonus, a by-product. It’s nice when that happens. We hope it happens a lot—but it’s not why we’re here. This is the Lord’s day, and we have come to worship the Lord”

Daily Bible Readings for 2014
These are fast times we’re living in. As life moves quicker and quicker, we can become overwhelmed and exhausted. It’s no surprise that when it comes to our relationships, we find ourselves with little or no time to put into them. Here is a different way to read through the Bible in a year. May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God inspired. Click here to download Bible readings.
