"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:23-24)
I was doing some more reading this morning on the…

"Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God's Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us. By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledge—a sure beginning of what he is destined to complete." (2…Continue
Hey this is Rev. Matt again. Okay all, at one time earlier we have struggled to figure out that one chord and then later on end up kicking ourselves in the butt when we realize...that's all it is! A prime example of this (which was also the same way I found out about this) was when I just happened to figure out to play a B-suspended chord and then slide down toward the headstock on the fretboard. Well anyway not only can i apply that to Open the Eyes of My Heart, I can also…Continue

I've posted a new song which Kurtis Park recently did demo recording of.
I'd had the song sitting around for a while and Kurt help me finish it up, writing a new section to the chorus, coming up with the totally cool piano riff that shows up throughout the song, and fixing some rough spots in my writing.
Kurt's performance of the song really brings it to life! He did this recording at home, doing all the instrument parts and vocals himself. If you enjoy this song, be…Continue

"You're familiar with the old written law, 'Love your friend,' and its unwritten companion, 'Hate your enemy.' I'm challenging that. I'm telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the…Continue
You take the book home and get to work. You do everything it says. The book says sway; you sway. The book says shuffle; you shuffle. The book says spin; you spin.
Finally, you think you’ve got it, and you invite your wife to come in and watch. You hold the book open and…Continue

Hi everyone, I'm Rev. Matt from Johnstown. I was blessed to have had the priviledge-actually to have been asked to lead worship-for Celebrate Recovery on Friday. I had originally chosen a song list from writers from the UK-England but then I had to reconsider the fact that if anyone knew any of these songs...I'd be very lucky! Otherwise the songs would be irrelevant even as relevant songs. Rule of thumb: introduce one at a…Continue

We park our blue Reliant K under the guidance of a blue-uniformed attendant who makes sure we are square in the middle of our smallish space. Pausing to let the engine diesel to a halt, he hands me a stub informing us we are in Orange Area 3-C. It’s Sunday morning, and we’re “ just visiting” a church of a thousand, Extended…

"Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
'Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.' (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)"…
