We are living in perilous times. Jesus said that men's hearts would fail them for fear of the things coming upon the Earth. Today we face an angry world leader who is threatening nuclear war. I'm so glad that Jesus is not only the Alpha but that He is the Omega too! In other words, God is running the Endgame over His creation - God's Endgame.
We have an amazing promise given to us in the book of Philippians where the Apostle Paul states, "Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."
Have you ever tried to do this and wondered if you did it right? Fortunately, the Bible is full of conversations with God that we can use as examples for our prayer life! - Conversations With God.
The scripture states (Ephesians 2:8-9) that we are saved by grace through faith. Our salvation is a gift from God and we cannot take any credit for it. God's amazing grace is a divine handout to anyone who will humble themself to receive it. In turn, we can take this same grace and give it away to others! - An Attitude of Grace.
We live in a world that is fascinated with superheroes. What is a superhero? A person who has superhuman ability that is used for good. The Apostle Paul told the Ephesian church that God is able to do things that are exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think according to the "superpower" that lives in us! - Your Superpowers In Christ.
Jesus told His disciples that they are to forgive people 490 times in a day! In another place He said to BLESS those who CURSE you. How does that work? Wouldn't that just make us a doormat? - The Healing Power of Forgiveness.
Shortly after the prophet Elijah had won a great confrontation with 450 prophets of Baal, he was running for his life and got stuck in a place of self-pity. It's common to experience a "let down" after an exciting life event. How do we deal with that? - The Day After Christmas.
One of the many fascinating stories that surround our Christmas season is the account of the Magi who found, worshiped, and presented gifts to Jesus. We know that Jesus was the original Christmas gift to all of us but did you know that He was also the first person to receive gifts for the occasion of His own birth. Can we (like the Magi) still present gifts to Jesus this Christmas season? - Presenting Our Gifts.
The Preacher in the book of Ecclesiastes declares, "Vanity. Vanity. All is vanity." He's a man on a quest to find the meaning of life. He has wealth, status, and influence. If anyone can win this game of life it would be him. Right? - The Game of Life - How To Win.
The Apostle Paul said that from now on we don't know each other according to the outward man but if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. Do you know who you are In Christ? - Knowing Who You Are - In Christ.
