And the beautiful thing is that He still loves us. He sees the dark truth within us and yet, He chooses to love and forgive us.
Jump on the Bandwagon
Are you willing to do whatever it takes to follow Jesus? Will you still be there in the end, or will you be one of those that jumps off the bandwagon?
Service > Status
In God’s Kingdom, service is more important than status.
We are on an earthly mission to serve the purposes of God! Is fear or intimidation silencing us?
The Compassion of Jesus
Sometimes, the work of the Lord doesn’t fit into the neat little box we’ve created.
Impacted by Identity
God gives believers an identity that changes everything.
Allow God to fill your heart with the priceless memories to cherish for the ages with Him.
Persistent in Prayer
Are you being persistent in your prayer? Time to go before the Lord and knock. He’s available to us always.
Don’t Miss Out on Jesus
Jesus wants you, not all this stuff you can do, but you. Don’t be so busy doing His work that you miss out on the best thing, Him.
Don’t Reject Jesus
We have the opportunity to cry out to our God and confess our sins, seeking His help to repent of those sins and follow Him.
Let’s stop with the excuses and respond the way Jesus did to the Father, “Not my will but thine”.
What Are We Waiting For?
If we want to see this world love the Lord and follow Him, we have to be the ones to teach them.
The Mission > The Tradition
The Pharisees, or religious leaders, felt threatened by Jesus and this new way. They were used to traditions and the law, but Jesus brought something new. And they didn’t like it at all. They had forgotten their mission.
Take as Directed
After all, if it’s prescribed by Jesus, we would be wise to take as directed.
Not That One, God
It’s time to recognize that our God is bigger than our problems and has all authority in our lives! Give it to God and trust Him to do what needs to be done!
It’s Time To Serve
It’s time to get off the seat and move your feet. It’s time to serve!
Unity Despite Differences
God calls us to unity, but what exactly is unity?
Examine your plans for the coming week, pray over them, hold them loosely, and invite the One who most deserves your attention, devotion, and energy to interrupt your plans for His.
Despised and Rejected
Have we turned on our heels away from Jesus? We sing His praises and worship Him on Sunday mornings, but what about the rest of the week?
True Courage Waits
The timeless biblical examples of courage are more than relevant in our day-to-day. The connect, strengthen, inspire, and carry us to the truth that God can and should be trusted.
I don’t think we need more of us in the coming days. I think we need more of Him…His wisdom, His direction, His love…
What a Sacrifice
What are we willing to give in return? Have we looked at what we are giving to the Lord?
Victory or Defeat?
You may be feeling like a ball in your hands translates to a turnover in the making, but a life in God’s hands is the perfect starting lineup.
The Truth Offends
The truth may hurt, it may offend, but it is the truth. May we speak it in love and grace to those that are broken and in desperate need.
Bunnies, Baskets, or the Beloved?
Will you intentionally revisit The Cross of Easter this year? Will it be the focus and priority of your celebration?
Make certain that you always prepare a place of honor for Jesus in your Easter celebration.
Courage > Culture
What are you giving to others that originated from your intimacy with the Lord?
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask
Ask questions and search out the answers. Let the Holy Spirit guide you as you discover more and more.
The Greatest Comeback Story
Hand Him the pieces, the missteps, the blunders, and watch what God can do with your brokenness.
Think On These Things
Whatever we gaze upon will affect our hearts and lives.
As the scripture captures, a true encounter with Christ quickly transforms our earthly purpose.
The One who created you may need to remind you of your purposes on life’s journey.
The Light of the World
As a follower of Christ, we can rest in the finished work of Jesus. He is the light of the world and in Him can be no darkness.
No Rejection Guaranteed
Spend time with the one that sought you (no rejection, guaranteed), that loves you like crazy, and validates that you are worth pursuing every day.
How Are You Using Your Influence?
How are you using your influence in this world? Is it to draw others to you, or to Him?
How Will You Observe the Sabbath?
How will you use the sabbath to glorify God above all things, even yourself?
He Can Heal You
Time and time again, He has proven His power and love for us. And we, too, can be healed if we put our trust in Him and ask.
A Heart Like His
Note to self…having a heart like His involves our words/speech.
Don’t Believe the Lies
Don’t believe the lies. Open your bible and read for yourself who Jesus was and what He did for you on the cross.
He Did It For You
Now, you know exactly what Jesus did for you. It’s time to decide.
Right and Wrong
Want to know the truth? Go to the source. Go to the Word of God.
When the Going gets Tough
Will you join me in serving our Lord in the local church? We need to come back together to gain knowledge and wisdom, find encouragement and support, and to worship our King we say we love!
Oh Christmas Tree
Each Christmas tradition can remind us of the Christmas message.
The Time is Now
When Jesus returns, those that have accepted His gift of salvation will be called home to heaven. Those that have not, will face God’s wrath.
How to Lead
Looking at how Jesus led helps us learn what true leadership is.
Why Do You Do That?
Our value does not come from our busyness.
Be aware that your approach is perhaps more important than your information. Don’t be out of step, out of control, or out of line when you attempt to love and respond to others.
Need a Shot of Encouragement For the Culture War?
With conspiracies, distrust, and depression at the forefront of cultural noise, we would do well to turn it off and turn to Christ.
Stories You Shouldn’t Hear at a Christian College
If you want to be a light for Christ while you’re in college, don’t assume you can ignore the Christian ones.
So You Say You Want Your Freedom?
Doing what you want when you want sounds nice, but if you ask someone who has lived that life, you may hear about a life of self-destruction.
