True Identity

A lot of things in this world can describe the lives we live, but these things don’t truly define us. Think of all the degrees we sometimes pursue to show off the letters behind or in front of our name, or the accolades and honors we receive from people around us or from our careers.…

How Do We Thank God?

Recently, I’ve been thinking about how to put action behind how thankful I am for all God has done in my life. But, the more I think about it, God is definitely the Father that already has everything. So, what could I possibly give? And then it occurred to me. My life is the only…

The World Needs You

The Bible is full of people we meet who were created for a purpose. From Adam to Moses, from David to Esther, from Daniel to Deborah from John to Paul they were all created to do spectacular things. And just like them, you were also created on purpose for a purpose to do wonderful works. …

Don’t Forget to Rest

Not that I’ve watched, or watch, the Twilight Zone very often, but I do have a favorite episode. It’s about a man who was the last person on earth, and he lost all hope. Just as he was about to end his life, he saw a sign in the rubble that read Public Library. He…

Belief not Works

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NIV) John 3:16 is filled with an amazing truth that our belief in Jesus, not our works, is the only requirement for an eternity in heaven at…
