Look to Jesus

Look to Jesus

Carinette has a spark in her. A look. A bounce in her step. A light in her eyes. She is one of fifty-seven children in the Haitian orphanage: all dark skinned, bright eyed, curly haired, Creole speaking, and fun loving. Each one is precious. But this seven-year-old stands out from the others. Not as a result of

Death Is Temporary

Death has been swallowed up in victory. — 1 Corinthians 15:54 NIV Barring the return of Christ, you will have one final moment… a last gasp, a final pulse. Your lungs will empty, and your blood will still. What will you be after you die? Answers vary, but Christianity posits a startling idea: “Death has been

Jesus: God with Us

  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light

This is Love – He Did This Just for You

Editor’s note: Today is Valentine’s Day! What a day to focus on God’s love for us through His son, Jesus! * Oh, the things we do to give gifts to those we love. But we don’t mind, do we? We would do it all again. Fact is, we do it all again. Every Christmas, every

God’s Gospel Has a “Whoever” Policy

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. — John 3:16 Whoever unfurls 3:16 as a banner for the ages. Whoever unrolls the welcome mat of Heaven to humanity. Whoever invites the world to God. Jesus could

John 10:10

Jesus: Life with Joy and Abundance

I have a sketch of Jesus laughing. It hangs on the wall across from my desk. It’s quite a drawing. His head is back. His mouth is open. His eyes are sparkling. He isn’t just grinning. He isn’t just chuckling. He’s roaring. He hasn’t heard or seen something like that in quite a while. He’s
