Hope For Today

Hope For Today

There is a lot going on in the world. It’s important to remember that this life isn’t about this life. God has given us a great hope to look forward to. But He also holds us now in the trials and makes all things work together for good. A look at Romans 8.

Even If…

Even If...

Our devotion to the LORD is based on His goodness, not our circumstances. A call for the Christ-followers of this generation to live for the LORD boldly, passionately and uncompromisingly. A look at Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego’s stand before the fiery furnace will inspire us to do the same.

The Greatest Day

The Greatest Day

How was Jesus able to endure the trials of his life, culminating with his crucifixion and death? Hebrews 12:2 tells us that it was because of the “joy that was set before him, he endured the cross.” Jesus was able to endure the worst day, because he was looking towards the greatest day.

Looking To Jesus: Patient Endurance

Jesus’ remarkable life culminates with his remarkable death. Betrayed, mocked, and scourged, the perfect man, Jesus, died the death of a criminal.

Have A Messy Christmas

Have A Messy Christmas

Sometimes life is messy. Things do not always go the way we hope or would like them to. These messy times often challenge our faith in God. We may ask “why is this happening?” or “where are you?” But it is in these messy times that God shows Himself present in our lives and in […]

Authority: When They Don’t Do What’s Right

Authority: When They Don't Do What's Right

God has set up certain relationships in the world where we find ourselves with authority over others or under other’s authority. In those cases where we are in subjection to others, what do we do when those we are in subjection to are not doing their part? Our fleshly tendency is to look for ways […]

Suffering Well (Laundry On The Floor – Part 2)

Suffering Well (Laundry On The Floor - Part 2)

No one likes pain, no one like trial. But for the Christian, this is part of living in an evil world – swimming upstream against the current. When we endure and trust God to work trials for our own growth and good, we are following in the steps of Christ. Though we don’t enjoy trial, […]
