About Michelle Fly

I am a follower of Jesus who is absolutely in love with the Word of God, how to study it, and enjoy helping others increase their knowledge of the Word of God for the purpose of knowing who He is and our relationship to Him. I am nowhere near perfect, but try my best to take what the Lord teaches me and learn to live it out with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

What the Gospel is and why most of us don’t know it.

I was watching a sermon this morning on Romans chapter 3 – one of my favorite books of the Bible – by a pastor I had never heard of before.

I was impressed by the way he could take concepts that we new Christians in the 21st century have difficulty understanding, and explaining not only what they are but why we have difficulty understanding them. He also without apology explains what the church is doing wrong in it’s explanation of the Gospel.

Paul Washer became a believer while studying at the University of Texas. After graduating, he moved to Peru and served there as a missionary for ten years, during which time he founded the HeartCry Missionary Society in order to support Peruvian church planters. HeartCry’s work now supports indigenous missionaries throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Eurasia, North America, and Latin America.

Paul now serves as one of the laborers with the HeartCry Missionary Society. He and his wife Charo have four children: Ian, Evan, Rowan, and Bronwyn

Here is the Roman 3 Video I watched this morning. I pray that it blesses you the way it has me.

Testing the Spirits / Spiritual Warfare

I was watching a sermon from John MacArthur today which I felt I needed to share. Pastor MacArthur does a phenomenal job sticking with Scripture when describing what Spiritual Warfare is, what it isn’t, and how to test the spirits. He speaks of who is responsible for doing it and why we do it.

He explains in great detail who the Holy Spirit is, and how He works in our lives. And he warns of the wolves in sheep’s clothing today, inside our church.

Preparing our Hearts for the Holidays — Day 18

Oh thank you God for being the one in control. It doesn’t matter the bad news, the scared or anxious feelings, You are in control. You have it taken care of. At the same time , you know me personally and take care of me, not matter the circumstances. Thank you God!

Plea for Grace

SOVEREIGN

God presides over every event, great or small, and He is in control of our lives. To be sovereign, He must be all-knowing and all-powerful, and by His sovereignty He rules His entire creation.

1 Chronicles 29:10-13 ESV – 10 . . . “Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13 And now we thank you, our God, and praise your…

Preparing our Hearts for the Holidays — Day 21 — Plea for Grace

FAITHFUL Out of His faithfulness God honors His covenants and fulfills His promises. Our hope for the future rests upon God’s faithfulness. Psalm 89:1-8 ESV – I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations. 2 For I said, “Steadfast love […]

Preparing our Hearts for the Holidays — Day 21 — Plea for Grace

Preparing our Hearts for the Holidays — Day 19

Especially at this time of year it is comforting to know that you came, to restore us, to rescue us, to redeem us from the world. In this broken world, you had the grace and mercy we know that you came to take us and make us yours. The words thank you seem so inadequate. But we are forever grateful.

Plea for Grace

JEHOVAH-NISSI “God our banner.”

Under His banner we go from triumph to triumph and say, “Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”

Psalm 60:4-5 ESV – 4 You have set up a banner for those who fear you, that they may flee to it from the bow. Selah 5 That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer us!

Lord,

As many frustrations and falterings that I may have in this broken world, You have immeasurably blessed me to tell me the end of the story — because of Christ paying the debt for my sins; because of Your incredible mercy in providing salvation; because of Your power and might and Sovereignty — You are the Victor! You will reign. The battle is won; Satan is defeated.

8 Theses for Women of the Modern Day Reformation

I havent read this book, but it sounds like a great read about the women pioneers of the Reformation. What does Godly women ministry look like?

ReformationDay is Thursday, October 31,
and we’re celebrating all week with Reformation-focused articles!

Originally published October 20, 2017

October 31, 2017, marks the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, and because I’m all theme-y and whatnot, I’m in the midst of a fantastic book called Reformation Women by Rebecca VanDoodewaard who I dearly wish were on social media so I could shamelessly fangirl her and make a general nuisance of myself by asking too many questions. Normally, I would actually finish a book before slobberingly commending it to you, but in case you like being all theme-y and whatnot too, and because time is of the essence, I’m throwing caution to the wind and telling you:

Get this book. Now. You’re welcome.

Normally, when we read about the Reformation, we’re reading about great preachers and leaders like Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, and Hus, but preaching was…
