Words from a CBM Intern

Written by Staciajohna Randle “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:15-18 When I first ...

These are five different areas for you to learn, grow, seek, explore, and demonstrate throughout your time as a CBM Intern and beyond.

I Can Serve God With My Hands

Written by Christella Ledford, Team #11 There are approximately 458 Bible verses that contain the word “hands.” It is interesting to read the many stories that involve how hands can be used: some for evil and some for good. This subject must be important to God, whether He is instructing us, discipling us, or loving us. He tells us to work with our hands and to present that work to Him for His approval. We see the humility of Jesus using His hands to break the bread, serve the wine, and wash the feet of His disciples, and by performing miracle after miracle by ...
