What’s going on in our country right now should make us want to go to our knees and listen for God all the more.
Those of us who name Jesus as our Lord and Savoir must step up to the basic command to love our neighbor as ourselves and to wake up every single day grateful for our rights, and then decide I am going to stewarded them well by not simply leveraging them for myself, but for the people around me.
Your suffering and your pain and the bumps in the road really are not the exceptions. They are part of the story. And Jesus made it all too clear; it’s an important part of the story.
Where is God nudging you? What is God urging you to do? Are you willing to do what you know how to do and trust God to do what only God can do?
Our friends determine the direction and quality and the depth of our faith in God, because God uses providential relationships to impact and to grow our faith in Him.
We are in the 3rd week of the series called Five Things God Uses to Grow Your Faith. Today we’re talking about the word discipline, which is not always our favorite word. Truthfully, it’s the thing that we all love to avoid. My personal definition of discipline is “the things you’re supposed to do that you don’t want to do.” Things like eating healthier, exercising more, saving more money, getting the job done, and getting your schoolwork done. The list…
Jesus says, No, you can come and hear all my speeches, all my sermons, and write them all down, keep them in your organized little notebook, but if you don’t do any of this stuff, it is not going to make any difference in the world.
The thing that is most honoring to God is your faith. And the thing that thrills and honors God most is our expressions of confidence in Him, Trust is the essence of relationships and that’s what God is after.
Today, we are going to take a look at two of the most recognizable people in the Bible who encountered Jesus and how their journey with Him changed everything for them. My hope is that the stories of these two men just might give you some great insights and hope for your own journey with Jesus.
If this could be a daily discipline, I believe every single one of us will have scores of stories to tell about how God used us, included us, scared us, and came through for us.
