When did Christians surrender the idea of fun? There is a dearth of true joy in the life of the average believer, and it’s proof that something's wrong.
Fear has struck and will strike us all. But when fear strikes, we don’t have to stay stricken. We belong to Jesus Christ and HE rules, not fear.
Being utterly known by Jesus isn’t just an idea. He knows me, knows my wounds, and He moved to save me from a situation that would have gutted me badly.
I heard a message delivered by a dear friend of mine. At the time it skewered me. Someone put to words with a visual picture a message I had resisted all my life.
To tell God “what is” rather than listening to Him to hear what is, is pride. This always leads to death and devastation—always!
The Gospel carries within it the death of me, but that's not all. My life for Christ's life is the beginning of a life beyond the limits of my dreams.
Even though I am alone, my life is about more than just me. Everyday I am building a heritage that is as eternal and significant as the God who promised it.
Because of Christ, God commits to our children too. I have specific promises that are rock solid and give me hope and joy and peace about my descendants!
Precious children of God are being persecuted, slaughtered and brutalized as never before in history. Our Family in Christ is in desperate need of prayer!
“Do you know God? Well then hello brother!” Wouldn’t it be great to live every day more receiving than reserved?
Either Jesus is who He claims to be or He is an utter fraud. Cry Hosanna, because Jesus is all that He promised and HE LIVES! Hosanna for evermore!
Sure, we can do the work of separating from our parents (in part), but until we deal with the actual tie, which is our idolatry, we’ll still seek their love.
