Welcome to WEAG’s New Website!

From the Communications Team… In celebration of WEAG’s 50th birthday, we are excited to welcome you to WEAG’s new home on the web: weag.church! Why a new website? The previous website at weag.org served us well for the past five years. When it was created, digital communications were very different. Live streaming was not a thing. Having a mobile responsive site was suggested but not expected. WEAG didn’t even have social media profiles. Fast forward to today, and the expectations…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY JULY 24, 2019

Philippians 1:14 (MSG)  Not only that,  but most of the Christians here have become far more sure of themselves in the faith than ever,  speaking out fearlessly about God,  about the Messiah.  Paul did not complain about his imprisonment,  but rather rejoiced,  because his jailing was resulting in many influential people in Rome coming to faith in Jesus Christ.  His hands and feet may have been chained,  but the gospel was not restricted.  And so Paul rejoiced.  Are people inspired…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY JULY 23, 2019

Philippians 1:9  (NIV)  And this is my prayer:  that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight.  The Apostle Paul cares deeply for the Philippian church and his prayer is for them to grow in love,  which brings knowledge and discernment.  When we judge people and do not see them as people for whom our loving Savior died,  then our testimony falls on deaf ears.  If we want to understand a culture then we have…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY JULY 22, 2019

Philippians 1:6 (NLT)  And I  (Apostle Paul)  am certain that God,  who began the good work within you,  will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.  Great joy comes from knowing that,  no matter what difficulties come our way,  the Lord is at work within us grooming our hearts and leading us into spiritual growth and maturity in spite of it all.  Of course,  our rate of growth depends on how we…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY JULY 20, 2019

Matthew 13:8 (MSG)  Some  (seeds)  fell on good earth,  and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.  The hearer with good soil values God’s Word  (Job 23:12)  and delights in it  (Jer. 15:16).   He does not ignore God’s word  (Ezek 33:30-33)  or rebel against it  (Psalm 107:11).  He is open minded  (Acts 17:11)  and willing to commit himself to the truth (John 7:17).  He does not cling to his own opinions  (Mark 7:13).  He has a teachable heart  (Acts…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY JULY 19, 2019

Matthew 13:7 (MSG)  Some  (seeds)  fell in the weeds;  as it came up,  it was strangled by the weeds.  Two crops strive for mastery.  The thorns choke the Word  (vs. 19)  “with anxieties”  (Luke 8:14 -Worrell)  and  “worries and money”  (Luke 8:14 – Moffat).  “Other things creep in and choke the message out”  (Mark 4:19 – Goodspeed).  The cares of life are remedied by re-evaluating the spiritual versus material values  (Luke 12:15).  The riches of life that snare us can…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY JULY 18, 2019

Matthew 13:5 (MSG)  Some  (seeds)  fell in the gravel;  it sprouted quickly but didn’t put down roots,  so when the sun came up it withered just as quickly.  Some people receive God’s Word  (the seed)  with  “enthusiasm”  (Moffat)  but it is short lived.  In times of trial or testing  (Luke 8:13)  they fall away.  Unbelief  (Heb.  3:7-12),  disobedience  (Zech 7:8-12),  rationalization  (Mark 8:16-17),  resistance to the truth  (Acts 19:8-9),  pride  (Daniel 5:20),  refusal to yield to the Lord  (II Chron.…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY JULY 17, 2019

Matthew 13:19 (NLT)   The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it.  Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their hearts.  The soil had been trampled down and had become a hard surface more useful for traffic than for crops.  This condition affected the seed in that it could not sink into soft soil and be absorbed.  Birds pecked it up …

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY JULY 16, 2019

Matthew 13:12  (NLT)  To those who listen to my teaching,  more understanding will be given,  and they will have an abundance of knowledge.  But for those who are not listening,  even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. If a hearer is to benefit from Christ’s teachings,  he or she must possess a condition of heart that is suitable for the reception of truth,  which will then multiply.  If that condition of heart is not present …

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY JULY 15, 2019

Matthew 13:2-3 (NLT)  A large crowd soon gathered around  (Jesus),  so He got into a boat.  Then He sat there and taught as the people stood on the shore.  He told many stories in the form of parables,  such as this one.  Jesus was conscious that with so many people gathered to hear Him,  there existed a diversity of reasons why they had come.  Some came out of mere curiosity and not necessarily out of receptiveness to the truth He…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY JULY 13, 2019

Proverbs 16:21 –  The wise in heart are called discerning,  and pleasant words promote instruction.  Ever find yourself in a tense situation in which everyone’s nerves are on edge?  It can be difficult to keep a calm spirit,  lowered voice,  and reassuring demeanor in such situations;  but they are fundamental to the process of helping people work together through a problem.  God wants us to be fluent in the language of discernment.  We must learn to be wise in heart…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY JULY 12, 2019

II Kings 6:16-17 –  And Elisha prayed,  “O Lord, open his eyes so he may see.”  Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes,  and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  What do you see when you look at your life?  Sometimes we need an eye-opening  “ah-ha”  moment so that we can discover God’s reality rather than living consumed by our own realities.  Elisha saw what his servant could not see—the…
