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 – THURSDAY OCTOBER 17, 2019

Romans 8:34 (NLT) –  Who then will condemn us?  No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us,  and He is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand,  pleading  (interceding NIV)  for us.  We are not alone in our battles in life.  Jesus prays for us!  And He leads other believers in supernatural ways to pray for us.  Just as Jesus prayed for Peter  (Luke 22:32)  and interceded for His followers  (John…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 16, 2019

Hebrews  2:1 (MSG) –  It’s crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so that we don’t drift off.   In other words,  “We must eagerly anchor ourselves to the truths we’ve been taught,  or we are likely to drift away from our moorings”  (Hayford Bible Handbook).  What rituals do you engage regularly in your life to make sure you don’t  “drift”  away from your spiritual moorings?  Daily devotions,  attendance in a group that actively studies the…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY OCTOBER 15, 2019

Hebrews 1:3(NLT) –  After He had provided purification for sins,  He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.   Hebrews  “emphasizes the superiority of God’s revelation in Christ to every other revelation.”  And in the day this book of the Bible was written,  there were many other religions and philosophies that governed the way men thought about life.  It was important for the writer of Hebrews to explain that Jesus,  who was the Creator of the…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY OCTOBER 14, 2019

Hebrews 1:1 (NLT) –  Long ago,  God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.  The basic truth of the book of Hebrews is found in this opening scripture:  God has spoken.  An entire succession of inspired writers in both Old and New Testaments declared His truths to a world confused by error.  “If fallen people are to find their way back to God,  only God can reveal the way.  Hebrews tells us that God…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY OCTOBER 12, 2019

Romans 3:23 (NLT) –  For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.  God created us and called us good,  but then we succumbed to evil’s voice in the Garden of Eden and since then evil is everywhere.  It seeks to find expression through us and leaves in its path brokenness.  But Jesus brings the solution—redemption.  He took upon Himself the judgment for our sin;  and by choosing faith in Him we transfer from the kingdom of…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY OCTOBER 11, 2019

Romans 1:17 (NIV) –  For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,  a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,  just as it is written:  “The righteous will live by faith.”   “In this gospel about Jesus,  a unique righteousness is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last.  Righteousness that comes to us through Jesus,  and is appropriated by faith,  is the theme of Paul’s letter to the Romans”  (The Hayford Bible Handbook). …

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY OCTOBER 10, 2019

Romans 1:8 (MSG) –  …People everywhere keep telling me about your lives of faith,  and every time I hear them,  I thank Him.  Something changes inside our core when we choose to embrace faith in Jesus Christ and it becomes visible on the outside.  Old destructive habits begin to melt away.  New hungers emerge to know God and understand the Bible and how it connects to the realities of everyday life.  We find we want to be around other Christians…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 9, 2019

Romans 1:5 (MSG) –  Through Him  (Jesus)  we received both the generous gift of His life and the urgent task of passing it on to others who receive it by entering into obedient trust in Jesus.  For those of us who follow Jesus,  it is our mission in life to share the story of how we came to discover His transforming power—how life was for us before we  “met”  Jesus,  how we came to embrace faith in Him,  and how…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY OCTOBER 8, 2019

Romans 1:4 (MSG) – …His unique identity as Son of God was shown by the Spirit when Jesus was raised from the dead,  setting him apart as the Messiah,  our Master. Mary and John and other women had watched Jesus die an excruciating death.  Can we even imagine it?  Joseph and Nicodemus had taken His dead body down from the cross and buried it in a tomb  (John 19).  Everybody went home to grieve.  All the followers of Jesus wondered…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY OCTOBER 7, 2019

Romans 1:2 (MSG) –  The sacred writings contain preliminary reports by the prophets on God’s Son.  His descent from David roots Him in history;  His unique identity as Son of God was shown by the Spirit when Jesus was raised from the dead,  setting Him apart as the Messiah our Master.  Paul,  who wrote these words,  had been a devoted Jewish scholar,  well versed in Old Testament writings and furious that a Christian movement had emerged declaring Jesus as Lord. …

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY OCTOBER 5, 2019

Luke 22:31-32 (NIV) –  “Simon,  Simon,  Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.  But I have prayed for you,  Simon,  that your faith may not fail.  And when you have turned back,  strengthen your brothers.”    We can strengthen others in the faith when they are under satanic attack.  We can intercede for them in prayer—and we must resist Satan,  standing firm in the faith  (I Peter 5:8-11).  Our brothers and sisters around the world are experiencing the  “same…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY OCTOBER 4, 2019

Numbers 21:4 (KJV) –  They journeyed from Mount Hor by the way of the Red Sea,  to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged. When a person goes through a long,  tough,  seemingly unending battle with illness and/or other hardships,  it is easy to become  “discouraged because of the way.”  Problems that otherwise may not have seemed so difficult loom larger than normal because the journey doesn’t seem to be getting any better. …
