What is this?

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!

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; however, are you living my man's thinking 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?

Christianity and Career

Can you be a Christian and still have a successful career? the Bible teaches us to be humble and look out for others....to be unselfish.....the answer isn't an easy yes or no....but most importantly, don't become what you are not or what you think you need to be to try and please your firm. Be who you are and success will follow.

Independence

245 years ago the US declared its independence from King George. The perceived freedom we think we have here on earth is really a facade if we don't embrace the greatest declarer of independence ever in Christ. Through Christ we are free to forgive, to love others and to face suffering in a way we could never before. John 8:32 says "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free".

The Power of Teaching

The old saying….."those who can't do, teach…". Recently I took my wife to the golf driving range for the first time. I took a few minutes to teach her some basics about the golf swing. Little did I know that by teaching her about her swing, I was also re-enforcing what I should do with my swing. And you know what? The same can be said when you share your faith and teach others about the Bible. Who have you taught lately?

A Year of Worship

One year ago I received a battlefield promotion to the worship band. I never had played in a band like that with my guitar, but the opportunity presented itself. Are you available when God calls? Are you going to make sure you don't miss your moment? Are you going to argue with God like Moses did?

It's amazing what I've learned in a year of playing…..

How Science Supports Going to Church

You may think you know why everyone was so miserable last year. Covid. Politics. Elections. Protest. You want to know the real answer? Isolation. Did you know that science supports many of the teachers of the church and the biggest and best scientist of all was Jesus? Science.

That (dang) Ego

Have you ever let your ego keep you from asking from help? Have you every let your ego stop you from empowering others? I think we all have at times. What do you think would have happened if Jesus let his ego get in the way, and we didn't have the disciples? Not much....certainly most likely this devotion would have never taken place.

Can you see it?

Have you ever put off a simple task, only to complete it and then wondered why you didn't do this earlier? That's how I see opportunities with God. He puts option in front of us; sometimes we turn on the light...other times we just leave it dark
