Consistent reading of scripture can have a very powerful impact. We pray that you can move from a feeling of obligation and becomes a time of great pleasure.
Being Jesus people means being bible people. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.
The wisemen of the Christmas story is a bit unexpected. What was neat is they enter the story with the desire to worship the new King Jesus, that is all. Where king Herod desired to kill Jesus. We need to dethrone the “mini-king” Herod in our hearts and worship Jesus just because of who He is.
There are many things in the human life that indicate that we are made for something different. We are citizens of heaven.
Church is the body of Christ, His bride and our spiritual family. It is not the building. The church is not a kiosk for spiritual goods. Church is a unique way of being with Christ. Come be a part of it.
It is easy to have a personal image of God or Jesus, but the Holy Spirit is more difficult. However, the Holy Spirit is relational. He is our helper, our counselor, our teacher. He is the spirit of truth the spotlight on Jesus. Holy Spirit empower us set us ablaze.
Reasons to believe in the Resurrection of Christ and why does it matter? Jesus didn’t come to make bad people good, but to make dead people live. He defeated death. Be steadfast in knowing it is not in vain.
Real love requires sacrifice. That is just what Jesus did. He sacrificed so that we may be reconciled. Gods plan of our reconciliation is something angels long to look on.
The Apostles Creed begins with believing in God the creator. God has made Himself plain in creation and sometimes we are too close to creation to recognize the creator.
What have you become? What are you becoming? If you look at your Christianity as a suitcase full of rich gifts is your focus only on the destination tag? Open the suitcase and live life to the full. Don’t be a spiritual Mr. Magoo |o)
There is a shift in how this culture sees community. It is not as deep. It is not as frequent. But we still need that community. The Church should be meeting this role. Pursue community in Christ.
