Test the Spirits

by Aaron Moore

What would it be like if all we ever got were compliments? You’re such a great dad! Wow, your contributions at work are outstanding! You sure can cook a mean mac and cheese! What would it be like if everyone simply loved each other and looked after one another’s best interest? This would be a […]

Little Children

by Aaron Moore

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; […]

Don’t Be Afraid

by Aaron Moore

Do not be afraid! I haven’t counted, but my sources tell me that the Bible gives us this imperative no less than 365 times. That’s one, “do not be afraid”, for every waking morning. Before the election I wrote a blog entitled “God’s Got This”. I was focusing on Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, but also […]

…And this will be a sign for you

by Aaron Moore

“And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:12 Have you ever asked for a sign? “God, if this is from you, let the next song on the radio be Christmas Shoes!” God can do better than that. If you’re […]

Romanticizing Expectations

by Aaron Moore

When I was in college I had the opportunity to take a job where I could really give back to the community. It was a job where I could put my faith into real action, serving, loving, reaching, and inspiring children who were at-risk and needy. I signed on with the Boys and Girls Club […]

God’s Got This

by Aaron Moore

Next Tuesday our nation will elect its next president along with many senators, congressmen, governors, city council people, judges, sheriffs, clerks, and dog catchers. Out of curiosity, not wanting to put anyone on the spot, who here today is a bit anxious about next Tuesday?   For months we have watched the campaigns, the debates, […]

The One Who Wins Souls is Wise

by Aaron Moore

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise”. –Proverbs 11:30 Pastor Ron has been preaching through the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5 over the past several months. This theme is such a precise means self-evaluation. Is my life indicative of these fruit that are […]

Remember the Sabbath

by Aaron Moore

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work…” Exodus 20:8-10 I just returned to the office after a two-week vacation and I’m feeling renewed. I […]

Mourning the Divorce

by Aaron Moore

I spent the last week with the teenagers from our church and a couple other chaperones at the Montreat Youth Conference Week III. Montreat is a retreat/conference center (as well as a college) nestled in a holler outside Black Mountain and adjacent to Asheville NC. It is a beautiful valley with an entranceway built of […]

Spirituality

by Aaron Moore

Lately I’ve been thinking about Christian spirituality. The word “spiritual” has such mystic connotations to it. A commonplace motto among spiritualists is, “I’m not religious, but I’m spiritual”. What that means is that they believe in some kind of god, or force, or spiritual nature, but they don’t want to belong in a category of […]
