Perseverance

One definition of perseverance is given as “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure or opposition.” Another describes it as “to finish what you start regardless of the obstacles that stand in the way.” Yet another definition states that perseverance is “not giving up.” Covenant Keeper standers are often viewed as being on display for everyone to watch and pass judgement on the quality of their perseverance. As leaders in the ministry effort we often feel that we are being watched and judged for our level of perseverance, too. Each of us could give examples of the […]

Forgiveness is Tough – Part Two

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 15, 2017

Part one of this series was last month’s topic. If you missed it, you can find it on our web site under archived articles or click the link “Forgiveness Is Tough, Part One.” Based on the responses that came to the office after part one of the article was published, I can see that forgiveness is a tough topic for many people. Why is forgiveness so hard to accomplish? As stated before, Satan uses all the emotions associated with lack of forgiveness to maintain a hold over you. Hurt, anger, resentment, hate, and suspicion are just a few of those […]

The Power of the Tongue – Part 1

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 19, 2017

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21 Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2 WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT SPEECH BEING A SKILL? How painful are honest words! But what does your argument prove? Job 6:25 The lips of the righteous bring forth what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked what […]

Truth Revealed In A Manger

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 5, 2016

I have been studying the book of Romans since September at Community Bible Study. Our third lesson from Volume 1 titled Truth Revealed is taken from Romans 1:18-32 and contained many insights into not only our lives as covenant keepers but the lives of prodigals. Here are a few paragraphs taken from pages 28-29: “So the human problem does not come from a lack of knowledge, but from failure to acknowledge God. Throughout this section, we see humanity’s feverish attempt to reverse the order of creation. Instead of accepting that they themselves are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27), people […]

Those Words You Say

  • July 18, 2016

This article is adapted from one written a couple of years ago regarding verbal seed planting. The topic is as relevant today as then and some more recent examples prompted the decision to revisit the topic. Does it matter what words you say?  Proverbs 18: 20-21 (ESV) tells us: 20From the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach is satisfied; he is satisfied by the yield of his lips. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. The phrases “fruit of a man’s mouth”, “yield of his lips” and […]

BETRAYED, Bitter or Better?   

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • July 11, 2016

One October morning ten years ago in Pennsylvania, Marie Roberts Monville received the devastating phone call that changed her life and that of their three young children and her community forever. Charlie Roberts called her to say “I’m never coming home. Give my love to the children and to my family. I left you a letter on the dresser. The police are already here.” When he did not wait to hear her pleas to stop what he planned and come home to talk, she heard the phone go dead. She had a sinking feeling that something very wrong was happening. […]

Warning – Disputes Ahead

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 23, 2016

This caution sign ought to be up in the hearts of all believers. Disputes in and of themselves are not evil. They arise when two opposing wills clash. Their outcome is seldom fruitful: it’s more like an exchange of pride-driven “rights.” In the intensity of the moment tempers flare, feelings are hurt, and Godly character is laid down to pick up the fight. And both parties are the losers. What are the things we can do in the midst of the battle to lessen sin’s effect on us and the one attacking. We may not come out smoke-free, but we […]

Best Job in the World

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 1, 2016

I vividly remember the time I heard Marilyn Conrad, the founder of Covenant Keepers, say that she believed she had the best job in the world. The first thought that crossed my mind was that surely she was kidding. She wouldn’t be doing this job if her husband hadn’t left her and her life turned upside down. But, no, that was not what she meant – she really loved her job. Well, I must step over to her side of the road and say, “I have the best job in the world.” I love to pray with and for CKs […]
