God’s Home is With Us

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them. John 14:23 (NLT) God will make His home with us – each of us. Doesn’t that sound good? Because homes are never perfect, ‘home’ doesn’t always evoke…

Making Space for the Kingdom of God

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 (NLT) I’m steeped in 3rd century church history right now and learning how monasteries got started. I’ve always found this simple life of devotion appealing. Had I been Catholic, I’d have considered becoming a…

Believing ‘In’ or Believing ‘That’

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 1 Corinthians 15:17 (NLT) I’ve been exploring the expansion of the church after the New Testament. All the church had to work with were oral accounts of Jesus’ teaching, the Jewish scriptures, Paul’s letters, and the Holy…

I Didn’t Think I Was Lost

For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost. Luke 19:10 (NLT) This verse isn’t for me. I’m not lost. I know where I’m going and what I’m doing and when I don’t, I Google it. I don’t need help – I can handle it. Sound familiar? Nor did I…

God Answers Unspoken Prayers

And four great beasts came up out of the sea… Daniel 7:3(ESV) Warning: I can be one of those beasts. The following story is evidence that God answers even unspoken prayers. For me, Holy Week is the most meaningful of the whole year. I’ve been complaining (not praying) that I will miss Maundy Thursday, Good…

Will We Follow?

Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will…

Three Small Words

God has saved us. 2 Timothy 1:9 (NIV) We’ve heard it a thousand or more times. God saved us. Or maybe the phrase we’ve heard over and over is ‘God loves us’ and it just seems like the same idea. Let’s consider the meaning of these three small words ‘God saved us’. This statement separates…

The Privilege of Faith

For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for Him. Philippians 1:29 (NLT) Are we privileged? No matter our position in this world, as believers we are distinctly privileged to trust Christ and claim all God’s promises. Do we forget our place in God’s…

A Good Imitation

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are His dear children. Ephesians 5:1(NLT) I’ve been told that I’m becoming like my mother. As a teenager, this was an offensive statement, but now I consider it a compliment. As is bound to happen in a church community, I often teach my friends’ children and…

Only the Best for Our Babies

Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness. 1 Peter 2:2-3 (NLT) Think about how we feed an infant. Our goal is to provide the healthiest nutrition…
