The Weeds of Sin
Christ has called His followers to be sanctified. This means to be set apart, to be holy. What sin remains in your life that needs to be removed?
The Greatest Comeback Story
Hand Him the pieces, the missteps, the blunders, and watch what God can do with your brokenness.
Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late
God has given us all we need in order to be saved. I pray you recognize that today.
Cleansed from Within
Only salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God can cleanse us from within.
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.
We Have the Opportunity
Today, Jesus offers us the same opportunity. He knows what’s on our minds and in our hearts. The door is wide open, we must only confess our sins and repent.
That One Thing
One thing happened. One thing was added to this man and he was changed completely.
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.
He Did It For You
Now, you know exactly what Jesus did for you. It’s time to decide.
Don’t Take the Easy Way Out
We may be tempted to take the easy way out when we feel pain, hurt, uneasiness, discomfort or trouble. But because of what Jesus endured on the cross, we can trust in Him and His sacrifice and stand strong.
He Did What We Couldn’t
He’s here. He’s offering to take that burden of sin from you. Don’t hold onto it. Let it go. Let Jesus help you in your greatest need. Let Him do for you what you can’t.
One day, there will be no choice. It will be too late. All will bow, but some will be in fear, realizing the King that is before them is the very one they have mocked, belittled and cursed their whole lives.
Scourged for Our Sins
Jesus did this for us. He took our punishment upon Himself so that we could be freed from our sin.
A Slap in the Face
Lead us, Lord, in the way that is everlasting!
In the Cover of Darkness
In the cover of darkness is where sin reigns. But when the light shines, the darkness flees.
He Paid the Price
I’m grateful my father stepped in to pay that debt so that I could be freed from the sin and punishment.
Do we Recognize our Need for the Savior?
Until we recognize our need for a Savior, we will never understand who He truly is.
Will we deny His truth and decide to do what we think or feel is right? Or will we choose Jesus, His truth, His way, and His love?
The same love that He showed for His betrayer Judas, He shows to you and me.
Will You Heed the Warning?
They had heard their Captain speaking, they had been warned, and yet, they chose to do their own thing.
Make that commitment today. The commitment to follow what the Lord had originally intended for marriage, before our sin polluted it.
So what do we do? If we have been forgiven so great a debt, one that we cannot repay, time and time again, what should we do when someone wrongs us? Forgive.
Changed from the Inside Out
We can dress it up, make it look beautiful, appealing, delightful, and inviting, but if anyone were to see the inside of each of us, would they be shocked? The only thing that can change our heart is Jesus.
Confusing Patience With Approval
Sometimes the Lord does not intervene immediately when we sin. He is patiently waiting for us to confess our sin and turn away from it, choosing His way over our own. But just because He may seem or feel silent does not mean He approves of our sin.
The Other Side of the Story
Resolving conflict is not easy. However, if we hear out the other side of the story, many times, the truth is revealed and a fight can be avoided.
Turn to God
Repentance begins in our heart.
Attempting to hide from God is as old as the garden, so try resolutions and honest communication instead of a slow fade.
Do We Do Well to be Angry?
When it comes to obeying God, we may outwardly obey him but our hearts are far from being glad about it.
The Root of the Problem
It’s not what’s at the surface that allows the new growth to thrive and succeed, but it’s at the root.

Have you ever had to deal with a thorn bush in your life? It started out as a seed, a seemingly tiny sin, planted in your heart. You knew it was wrong, yet, you liked it. And you allowed it to stay. Instead of confessing it to the Lord and turning from it, you ignored it, and it began to take root.
The Slow Fade to a King’s Folly
Yes, he was rich. Yes, he was wise. But his fall was one of the most epic in the entire Bible.
We Are Each Accountable
God, rich in mercy, sent His Son Jesus Christ, to take our place. On the cross, the Lord chose to take on all our sins.
God is clear in His design. He created Adam as a man with a specific body and role. He created Eve as a woman with a unique body and role to her. This was His design. Perfect. Flawless. And as mankind chose to disobey God, sin entered into the world. And we are still battling it today.
Return to the Lord
Return to the Lord. Forget the things of this world that tempt you and lure you from Him. We are the bride of Christ and should live holy lives, devoted to Him, and Him alone. God is faithful to forgive. Return to Him.
