Can People Tell You're a Christian?


"Everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another"(John 13:35 NIV). The distinguishing mark of a Christian is not a cross, a crucifix, a dove, or a fish on a bumper sticker. The sign of a Christian is love. That's what Jesus says. The world will know you are my followers because of the love you have for one another. Not because of all the Bible verse...

Your "Shape" Reveals Your Purpose


Jeremiah 1:5 (MSG) "Before I shaped you in your mother's womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you." God created you for a purpose.

Faith > Feelings


Have you ever had the feeling that something was so very, very right, but then when you did it, it ended up being so very, very wrong? Proverbs 28:26 "Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe." In other words, don't rely on an impression because an impression, most of the time, is just an impression. Feelings aren't facts. Yo...

Faith > Fear


We all have all different kinds of fears. I'm afraid I'll make mistakes and embarrass myself. I'm afraid that I won't be able to finish what I've started. I'm afraid I'm not good enough.

How Clutter Kills Spiritual Growth


So, last year was hard. But, I do think one silver-lining of the pandemic is that we were forced to slow down. We were given a unique opportunity to remove things off our schedule (even though that may have been disappointing in some instances). We had a chance to reconnect with the people we live with. We could declutter. We could do some weeding. Some of us, hopefully, ...

A Guilt Free Life


In John 14:6, Jesus says that he is the way, the truth, and the life. Several chapters earlier, in John 8:32, he says,"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."(NIV). One of the things that Jesus sets us free from is guilt. Many people think that Jesus is the one who causes guilt in our life. This is not true at all. Jesus is our advocate. He didn't ...
