Prayer Is a Peace-Giving Gift

Prayer Is a Peace-Giving Gift

  Many decades ago, one of my college friends gave me a small picture that has meant a great deal to me. There is nothing remarkable about it from an artistic standpoint, but it has given me great comfort during some important times nonetheless. In fact, not long ago, I asked the Lord for direction

1 Peter 5:7

Roadblocks to Healing

Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. — Ephesians 5:15-17 There are many roadblocks to receiving Christ’s gift of healing by faith, either as a

You Don’t Have to Suffer Alone

I broaden the path beneath you so that your ankles do not turn. This shows how intricately I am involved in your life-journey. I know exactly what is before you, and I can alter the path ahead of you to make your way easier. Sometimes I enable you to see what I have done on

Matthew 28:20

Jesus: Our Example for Living

For the longest time in my life, I (John) didn’t know where to put Jesus. As a child I can remember seeing God the Father as someone who could help me with things such as good grades, getting me out of trouble with my parents, and having my team win in baseball.   In college, I learned about

You Are Free — That’s a Wrap!

We hope you enjoyed the You Are Free Online Bible Study with Rebekah Lyons as much as we did! Free as a bird! I still love that phrase. The study has been such an amazing six weeks of gaining back lost territory and learning to fly in the freedom Christ came to bring us. As

Letting Go: Love Has Teeth

If you live with a prodigal, you know what it means to love someone. Love is a means of survival. Love is what gets you up each morning and inspires you to serve someone who acts like they hate you. Loving this way means duty, sacrifice, responsibility, and resilience. Many years back, an R&B icon

Turbulent Peace: I Am With You Always

Peter and the other disciples were huddled together behind a door bolted hard against their fear. He wondered whether the religious leaders who had crucified Jesus two days earlier might soon be coming for him. But instead of the terror and despair that had filled him for the last two days, Peter felt a growing

Workplace Evangelism: “Wise” or “Wimpy”?

Workplace evangelism gets a bad rap sometimes. People assume that when you do it, it’s going to be tactless, awkward, and disruptive in some way. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can do good work, make your faith known, talk to your coworkers about their lives, and invite them to meet other Christians – and

Here is God

I am with you always, even to the end of the age. — Matthew 28:20 When ancient sailors sketched maps of the oceans, they disclosed their fears. On the vast unexplored waters, cartographers wrote such words as “Here be dragons” and “Here be demons.” If you drew a map of your world, would we read such phrases? Over the unknown
