What is this?

Stacks Image 1109

Welcome to BK's BS (Brent Kassing's Bible Study).

Mission trips always provide time for my team's to listen to and prepare devotions. When 2020 came around and mission trips went away, I started to do them myself weekly. What began as a short-term idea has turned into a long-term discipline that's changed me for the good in so many ways.

My goal here is to take my observations of every day life and put a Christian perspective on them. I do my best to be transparent, honest and consistent knowing that there are other takes and opinions across all of these topics. Like everyone, I've made good and bad life choices. However, by dedicating time to the regular study and application of the Bible, my goal is to work towards making those "good" choices more than those "bad" ones, improve my spiritual development and continue my never-ending journey as a Christian.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!


What is your dream....?

What is your dream ? The secular world tells you over and over about how you should get X, that is your dream. Will that dream fulfill you? (No). What do you think God's dream X is? Have you ever thought about how God will answer such a question?

If Only

Have you ever thought "if only"? Like, If only those people would do this? If only those people did what I told them to do? If only those people agreed with me? Right now, our "leaders" are telling us that "if only we'd get the shot" everything would return to normal. Do you know who else could play the "if only" game? If only Adam and Eve obeyed? If only the freed Egyptians were faithful? If only those who knew and Jesus truly believed? Right? We should be mindful of falling into the "if only" world. Not only do we not know someone else's situation, are you so arrogant to think YOUR way is the ONLY way? Thankfully we don't have an "if only" God. We have a God that loves us no matter what. Not if only.

why is it so hard to ask for help?

Most people, or perhaps most people I hang out with, don't ask for a lot of help. We like to do things ourselves. I know I like to just do it. Prove to people I can do it, and I don't need any help. Although admirable in a lot of cases, there are times when you should ask for help. Most importantly, there are plenty of people who enjoy and are uplifted through service to others. So what is is about us that causes us not to ask for help? Did Jesus ever ask for help?

Let your kids go!

As parents, it's natural for us to want to protect our kinds from evil, harm's way and other nasty things. However, this is not only unrealistic, but actually may be harmful. In Luke 9:3, Jesus sent out his disciples and said "Take nothing for the journey - no staff, no bag, no bread , no money no extra shirt….." Jesus knew it was not to protect all things the disciples will encounter.,..with many suffering and dying for their cause. God gives us that same freewill, and we too will have life challenges. And with that, it will be good.

All In!

The song Sails was on my mind. Essentially the song is about doing it your way all this time without realizing that God is with you all the time. And in reality, we should lift our sails because no matter what, God is with us and there for us. Thus, go all in!

5 Ways Golf is like Christianity

Did you know the golf journey is a lot like our Christian journey?

  • It’s a life long journey; there is always more you can do
  • It’s easy to lose focus
  • It can be frustrating and joyful at the same time; the struggles are worth it
  • It is better when done together
  • You do the wrong thing even though you know the right thing to do
  • Can Christians get Angry?

    Do you get angry? Of course you do. Should Christians get angry? Or should just turn the other cheek and just be cool, calm and collected all the time? Do a search on "angry" in the Bible and you will get a host of verses and stories….generally telling us to be slow to anger. But in the bigger picture, Jesus did get mad such as when he overturned the tables at the Temple. So which is it? Stay calm? Or throw around some tables?

    Fantasy Island

    The show Fantasy Island was about people coming to this location thinking they knew what they want, only to find out it's not what they want. In today's world, we are being told what we should want and have to be successful and happy. So which is it, are you living by society's standards or God's? Where are you rooted?

    Colossians 2
    6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding [d]in it with thanksgiving.
    Beware lest anyone [e]cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [f]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [g]principality and power.

    Make Room

    Make Room is the name of a song our band played recently at church. Often times, we listen to songs and hear words but don't HEAR the words. This song essentially is telling us to make room for God. Are you making room for God or are you making room for everything else but God?
