In Conflict, Check Your Motives

Jesus modeled selflessness in relationships. While he lived in a healthy rhythm in life, he also gave of his time and his touch to as many people as he could. He eventually laid down his very life as a ransom for all people. Surely we can lay aside our right to be first, right, or best for the benefit of others.

Key to Treasure

What Does God Have Stored Up for You?

God knows what is best, and it often doesn’t align with our view of what is best. He gives us growth through suffering and loss. His timing is also better, and many of his best gifts won’t be enjoyed until Jesus comes again and makes everything right.

I Want to Live In the 8th of Romans

  • by

I don’t have to live under sin’s tyranny any longer. I don’t have to walk in fear and anxiety over my eternal destiny. I don’t have to succumb to temptation. I can pray and connect with God. I can enjoy a foretaste of heaven to come. I can walk in the confidence that I am God’s child, that he is my Father, and that I’m on my way home for good.

Caring for the Least of These

In our modern, western culture, we’re taught a lot about individuality and personal responsibility. So much so, in fact, that if we’re not careful, we’ll simply live looking out for our own needs instead of the needs of those around us, which is antithetical to the way Jesus lived and challenged us to live.

Good News for the Broken

One of the greatest ways that you can use your tongue is to speak up on behalf of those who are poor. To speak up on behalf of those who are oppressed. To speak up on behalf of those who are buried under the weight and the pain created by other people, by systems, by culture and to speak on behalf of those who are not always able to speak on their own behalf.

Words Can Burn it All Down

  • by

Words can burn it all down. Words can destroy your family, they can destroy your heart, they can destroy your marriage. Words can cause destruction in a church, in a family, in a workplace, in the culture. And I think we see that right now. It’s happening all around us.

Words Shape the Future

Words Shape the Future

In a world where people are desperately seeking purpose, desperately seeking direction, you and I as followers of Jesus get to use our words to point people to Jesus Christ. To draw them into love. To point them toward the one who made them and cares about them and will change their lives forever if they’ll simply trust in him.
