4 Ways to Break the Grip of Materialism


I Tim. 6:17-19 Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. 19 By doing this ...

Why You Need Truth AND Love


Jesus teaches us that communication that makes an impact is honest. The best example comes from Jesus. Jesus, God in human flesh, walked this earth. He has hundreds of conversations. In those conversations, you can see how he talked to people. Jesus was honest. When it comes to Jesus Christ, and how he communicated, it is amazing. He had this honesty about him. It wasn't ...

What's In Your Heart Will Spill Out


Jesus teaches us that there is a connection between my mouth and my heart. Just like there is a connection between our foot pushing down on an accelerator and our car speeding up, there is a connection between what I say and what's already in my heart. Matthew 12:34 Whatever is in your heart determines what you say. When we live in close proximity to the people we love ...

No Worries


Matt 6:30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

A Christian's Journey Through Grief


Before we get into this blog, I wanted to point out that Christians still go through times of grief in our lives. Things happen, and we grieve. But, because of Jesus, we grieve differently. Because of Jesus, we have hope for the future. Because of Jesus, we know sadness, loss and death are temporary. But I know, this side of heaven, it doesn't feel temporary. It's okay not...

It's Okay to Struggle with God


Everybody struggles in life. Life's tough. Life is a struggle three ways. We struggle with other people; we struggle with ourselves; and we actually struggle with God. We struggle with God all the time, whether you realize it or not. In fact, most of our struggles with other people and most of the struggles with ourselves are rooted in the struggle that we have with God. ...

The Best Use of Your Pain


Pain happens. Because we live in a broken world, this isn't heaven and people are free to make their own decisions (good and bad), there will be pain this side of heaven. The good news is that God never wastes your pain. (We can waste it, but that is never God's plan). God wants to use whatever pain you're going through emotional, physical, financial, relational, spiritu...

Believing in Each Other


Did you know that all around us are people with low self-esteem? Everybody has insecurities. Studies have shown that the younger you were when you first experienced rejection the more serious it is in your life. Jesus affirmed the people around him. Jesus looked at people, and he didn't see what they were. He saw what they could become. He saw their potential. He saw thei...

Fully Forgiven


Some people think that God carries grudges. They think that God's always mad at them. They think that no matter what they do, whenever they have a problem, they think, "God's getting even with me." Is that really the way God acts? No. What's God really like? We grow up and we get this idea that he's up in heaven waiting to zap me for something I do wrong. But here's what...

Seeking the Truth


2 Timothy 4:3-4 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths. Sound like our culture? We have to commit ourselves to seeking the truth. It's not always easy, ...
