Matthew 25:26-28
While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to His disciples. “Take and eat it,” He said; “This is my body.” Then He took a cup, gave thanks to God, and gave it to them. “Drink it, all of you,” He said; “This is my blood, which seals God’s covenant, my blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

A Thankful Life

Are you thankful? I mean – Do you live life with a thankful attitude? Think
about your life for a moment. Do you live with a thankful spirit?


Romans 14:17-19
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God and other people will approve you. So then, we must always aim at those things that bring peace and that help strengthen one another.

What Makes You Strong

Have you ever felt weak? I mean, like you didn’t have enough to keep going.
Felt like giving up? Overwhelmed? It’s OK, you’re among friends and family.


Romans 12:3
And because of God’s gracious gift to me, I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you should. Instead, be modest in your thinking, and judge yourself according to the amount of faith that God has given you.

Letting Go!

Oh, how I struggle with pride. No, no – not the big chest, inflated ego kind of
pride. And not the “isn’t it OK to be proud of my son” kind of pride. My
struggle is that I start believing that things are going well because of me! It
doesn’t take too long, and before you know it my thoughts are on what a good


Ephesians 4:1
I urge you, then – I who am a prisoner because I serve the Lord: live a life that measures up to the standard God set when He called you.

Inspiring to Excellence

Pride is a funny thing. We know that a prideful spirit is a sin, but it’s “funny”
how pride works – how pride gets in the way of the Spirit.

The talks that are given on the Kairos weekend all blend together to form one
message. So, no talk stands by itself. It relies on the message of the talks
that come before it, and it lays foundation for the talks that come after it.


Matthew 11:27-30
"All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him."

"Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."


Have you ever listened to a heartbeat?


John 15:16
You did not choose me; I chose you and appointed you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures. And so the Father will give you what ever you ask of Him in my name.

The Face of Death

What happens when we set ourselves aside for Christ? I mean, this idea that
we have to die to our self so we can rise as a new creature seems a bit
extreme, doesn’t it? Extreme? You bet! Nothing lukewarm about Christ!
Want to live – then you must die an inward death!

That dying “to self” is a deep inward process of yielding to the will of Christ.

The Nature of Human Love-5

Psalm 42:1-2
God. I thirst for you, the living God. When can I go and worship in your

Needing to Be Filled

Don’t you find life to be a paradox? You know, the very thing we want least is
the most important. Jesus knew this! He talked about it a lot. Has He talked
with you about it yet? You know what I mean – the weak shall be strong – the
first shall be last – the poor shall be rich – the giver shall be the receiver.
God’s world is just the opposite of man’s world

The world, and our flesh, wants power, prestige, money, material things.

The Nature of Human Love-4

Ephesians 1:3
Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! For in our union with Christ He has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world.

Flow of the Kairos

The Kairos weekend is a time of transformation. Listen and watch as the Holy
Spirit forms new life in hardened souls. If you have ever witnessed the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly or a moth, then you have an idea how radical the change in our participants can be.

First Day

A time of uncertainty.

The Nature of Human Love-3

Romans 13:5
For this reason you must obey the authorities – not just because of God’s
punishment, but also as a matter of conscience.

Respecting Authority

As Christians, we know that we have an obligation to obedience. We learn
that we can set ourselves aside. We don’t always have to be right – We don’t
always have to have the last word – We don’t always have to be in charge.
What we know is that we need to humbly acknowledge those in authority.

That is especially true in a prison setting. Kairos serves within a prison at the

The Nature of Human Love-2

Galatians 5:19-21
What human nature does is quite plain. It shows itself in immoral, filthy, and indecent actions; in worship of idols and witchcraft. People become enemies and they fight; they become jealous, angry, and ambitious. They separate into parties and groups; they are envious, get drunk, have orgies and do other things like this. I warn you now as I have before: those who do these things will not possess the Kingdom of God.
