Being the Hunted What did Jesus call people who were attacked by dragons, regardless of the righteous way they were conducting their lives? Jesus called these people normal. Jesus made a few promises about what would happen to us, regardless of our faith. Here is what Jesus promised those who love Him the most: In

If you’re suffering right now, Jesus in not indifferent! He isn’t late. He isn’t unaware. He has a bigger plan than we can currently imagine and in the end it will be worth it. Come share your thoughts with us.

The Power of Perspective

  Several years ago, a good, very godly friend of mine lost his wife to cancer. It was devastating. We had prayed and prayed for her recovery, but there was no sign of God’s healing hand. Jim sat by his wife’s side all day, every day. Anything he could do to make his wife more

For Kids: Jesus Knows Some people might think, Jesus, it’s easy for You up there. You’re in Heaven. You just don’t know how hard it is down here. But those people would be wrong. The Bible says He “is able to understand” (Hebrews 4:15 ICB). Jesus knows. He knows because He Himself left Heaven and

Earth is not a stress-free place. Oh boy, no! We’ve got trouble with a capital T, don’t we? But, part of that is because this isn’t our home. Heaven is. Jesus went ahead of us to prepare that place for us. Let’s look forward to it together!

Headed for Home

  Some people believe that when they accept Christ, they will receive a Get Out of Stress Free card and live a life of uninterrupted bliss. To be honest, when I became a believer, I picked up a few new problems I hadn’t had before. Jesus never offered a false promise. At every point, He

Jesus drew people in because He was real, and that is the real attractiveness. Our true appeal will always be our truth lived out.

And He can’t wait to get you home.

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

A Cinderella Story: The God Who Gave His Beauty Away

Carrying His own cross, Jesus went out to a place called The Place of the Skull… There they crucified Jesus. They also crucified two other men, one on each side, with Jesus in the middle. — John 19:17-18 God between two thieves. Exactly the place He wants to be. Three men on three crosses, a

Satan Stalked Him

He faced all of the same temptations we do. — Hebrews 4:15 You and I know what it is like to endure a moment of temptation or an hour of temptation, even a day of temptation. But forty days? That is what Jesus faced. The Spirit led Jesus into the desert where the devil tempted Jesus for forty

Did the Devil Really Make Me Do It?

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 Early on in my
