Side by Side – Day 37 “Covenant”

Gregory Wasinski Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

We have learned that there is a difference between a promise and a covenant. A covenant isn’t just a verbal agreement, but there is an exchange of goods. Each party is giving something of themselves so the bond cannot be broken. God makes a covenant with His people… it goes far beyond the promise. With what we are just reminded …

Gregory Wasinski Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

When your sworn in during testimony not only do they ask you to tell the truth, they want the whole truth and nothing but the truth. They say the word truth three times to make sure you really get the point. Truth is hard because it is not popular. We don’t want to hurt a friend’s feelings, or we feel …

“Regrets, I’ve had a few, but too few to mention” are the famous words Frank Sinatra sang in, “My Way.” In my life, I’ve had more than a few regrets, but I can’t look back at who I once was… I need to look ahead as to who I strive to be. Once we hand ourselves over to Him, Christ …

This big buzz word in business development right now is “Why.” Organizations are reminded that people have to understand why you are in the business you are in and what makes you different than everyone else.

I believe that there are certain words we use that call us into a deeper level of spirituality.

It is the core truth of my existence.” …

Jesus does for us what we can’t do ourselves. When we are paralyzed by decisions, struggles, and real pain, we must cry out to Christ and ask Him to wash over us with His living water. Every miracle Christ performed during His ministry was mind blowing to those who were witness. He wants to do the same for you. Ask …
