Jesus Knows You

By Justin Hopkins | Jan 18, 2019

Jesus’ conversation with the woman at the well in John 4 is full of compassion. Jesus crossed several social barriers to spend time teaching this woman. The words that He had for her were exactly what she needed at the time. She had come with the drudgery of life, performing a daily task, and left…

God So Loved The World

By Justin Hopkins | Jan 11, 2019

John 3:16 is probably the most famous verse in the Bible, and it is easy to see why. It tells us of God, the greatest lover. So, the greatest measure. Loved, the greatest motivation. The world, the greatest company. That He gave, the greatest act. His only begotten Son, the greatest gift. That whosoever, the…

What About The Water?

By Justin Hopkins | Jan 4, 2019

When we talk about coffee, we tend to focus on the beans that go into the drink. Certainly, that’s important, because, without that, it would just be water. However, it is important to remember that this amazing elixir is nevertheless 99% pure water. That means that drinking coffee can help you stay hydrated (but it…

You Must Be Born Again

By Justin Hopkins | Dec 28, 2018

Jesus’ response to Nicodemus was an ultimatum. Be born again, or miss out on the Kingdom of God (v. 3). Nicodemus, the smart man that he was, seemed a little confused by this idea, as do many people in our day. While Nicodemus mentions it, Jesus never addresses the idea of natural childbirth. Instead, He…

Slow To Accept Him

By Justin Hopkins | Dec 14, 2018

Some people heartily embrace the Gospel the first time that they hear it. They are eagerly searching for the salvation that Jesus offers. Others never give the Gospel a fair hearing, like the Pharisees of Jesus’ day. Still, others desire truth, but for one reason or another are slow to embrace it. Such was Nicodemus.…

What Eats You Up?

By Justin Hopkins | Nov 30, 2018

John chapter two ends with an abrupt account of Jesus cleansing the Temple. This whole process occupies many hours of His time. He made a scourge (John 2:15). No doubt, He spent much time in thought and prayer as He sat and braided the small cords. His actions were not a brief fit of rage…

It’s A Miracle!

By Justin Hopkins | Nov 23, 2018

In John 2:11 we read that Jesus’ first miracle “manifested His glory.” It was a significant event to all who saw or heard of it. It is easy when we read our Bibles to imagine that miracles were a commonplace occurrence. We tend to picture Abraham walking out of his tent every morning, stretching, yawning,…

How do I chose a coffee grinder?

By Justin Hopkins | Nov 20, 2018

It is often said that your grinder is the most important piece of equipment that effects how Epic your coffee is. Well, it’s true. Even coffee that was ground just seconds before brewing will produce a lousy cup if it was ground with a hammer. It is important that all of the grounds in your…

Whatever He Says…

By Justin Hopkins | Nov 16, 2018

The first miracle that Jesus ever performed was prompted by the initiative of His mother, Mary. The instructions that she gave to the servants were simple. “Whatever He says to you, do it” (John 2:5). What might have happened if the servants had ignored Jesus’ instructions? What if they had only kinda done what Jesus…

By Justin Hopkins | Nov 9, 2018

Do you like your coffee to have the maximum amount of freshness, flavor, and wonderfulness? Then you want whole-bean coffee. Remember from October, that the biggest factor affecting the freshness of your coffee is its exposure to air. When you grind your coffee the amount of surface area that is exposed to air multiplies exponentially.…
