    Unwrapping Kingdom Benefits

    I had the privilege of reading Kingdom Benefits: Advantages of a New Life with Christ by Diane Burke. As someone with a heart for evangelism, I’m thankful this book exists. For the most part, each chapter focuses on a wonderful benefit of a relationship with Jesus. It takes us through relationship, prayer, the Bible, love, […]

  • He’s Coming

    He’s Coming

    But the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. Matthew 14:24-25 According to my Bible notes, the fourth watch of the night is between 3 and 6 AM. […]

  • REBIRTH

    REBIRTH

    Isaiah 53 is prophesy about Jesus, the Messiah. It declares powerful truth about what Jesus experienced for us. “He was oppressed and afflicted,Yet He did not open His mouth;Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,So He did not open His mouth.By oppression and judgment He was […]

  • Believe Before You See

    Believe Before You See

    Have you been waiting, praying, seeking, and still haven’t seen the promise fulfilled? Has God given you a word, but it feels stuck somewhere between Heaven and Earth? While reading in John 4, the Lord drew my attention to a particular verse. It came from the following passage: “Therefore He came again to Cana of Galilee, where […]

  • What is Love?

    What is Love?

    The other day, while reading in 1 John, I came across this verse: “The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him,” (1 John 2:10). It jumped off the page! There is no cause for stumbling inside the one who loves his brother? Wow. Can […]

    Something Radical

    What if we do something radical? Something that transforms our culture and the way people interact with each other?  Are you ready for this radical thing? Here it is: What if, before we act, we consider the best interest of others, and not ourselves? What if we consider how our words will impact the person […]

  • As Beloved Children

    As Beloved Children

    Yesterday, I saw an endearing video. A woman was exercising, and her young daughter was following along. The child, let’s call her Lucy, appeared to be around three years old. As Mom finished a movement and prepared for the next exercise, so did Lucy. Mom positioned a large dumbbell on its side and, watching closely, […]

  • Don’t Lose Hope

    Don’t Lose Hope

    Don’t lose hope. The world will try to tell you that miracles are impossible. It will try to force you to conform to its limitations and forget who you’re created to be. It will lie to you, and tell you that wealth, fame, promotions–that next big thing–will satisfy the longing in your heart. It will […]

  • Catching Fire

    Catching Fire

    While reading Acts chapter eight this past Friday, several things stuck out. The book of Acts is rather inspiring: people, filled with the Holy Spirit, following God with complete abandon. They don’t worry about pleasing people. They aren’t stopped by fear of torture or death. They know the truth, and that truth comes flowing out […]
