Making it Practical

Following Jesus in today’s world can be challenging. But living according to Jesus’ teaching is incredibly worthwhile. Call it life-changing.

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…

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…

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

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…

A Process of Growth

In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence (goodness), and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.…

Conform or Transform?

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will. Romans 12:2 (NIV) How do we know God’s will for our lives? Three key words…

Do Unto Others – Jesus’ Final 24 Hours

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Do to others as you would like them to do to you. Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting…

The Aroma of Jesus

Through us, [God] brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation – an aroma redolent with life. But those on the way to destruction treat us more like…

Believe Jesus? Or Know Jesus?

If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. John 14:7 (NLT) My summer was crazy exciting, but I strayed from blogging. The fall routine has arrived and I’m bursting with inspirational thoughts! I don’t know where to begin so I’ll start with Jesus. I love Jesus and I came to…
