Has The Lord Forgotten Me?
on February 19th, 2020
BY: A Stander in Malaysia In our church’s calendar, my husband's birthday falls on the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross. That has always been a source of consolation to me each year; that the Cross will triumph in my prodigal’s life. This year, when the day came, I asked my daughters to accompany me to church to pray for their father, especially on his birthday. Only my younger daughter was able...
The Heart's Meaning and Function
on February 17th, 2020
FROM THE CK ARCHIVES: The Heart's Meaning and Function from our workbook "Foundations for Keeping Covenant." (written by founder, Marilyn Conrad, et al.)

Not In Vain
on February 4th, 2020
BY: Stander, Healed Marriage, Georgia, USA This morning my husband and I prayed together as it has been a challenging week and the enemy has definitely been attacking. But earlier in the week, I spoke God's word that "No weapon formed against me shall prosper" and I asked the Lord to meet our needs and God (as always) came through and we persevered. This morning in prayer, my husband was praying a...
Focusing On The Spirit, Not The Soul
on January 29th, 2020
BY: Duke Rohe, Stander I have resolved myself to add life to my covenant keeping brothers and sisters in Christ. And because of that, I no longer want anyone to wallow in their sorrows.

So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual dark...
