Have you ever thought about how Satan entices human beings into sin?When we are tempted by a particular thing it seems natural to engage. We believe by engaging with that temptation, it will give us something. It might make us feel good or meet a perceived need. Eve thought God was holding out on her when she wanted to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. She didn’t believe God’s warning when He set a boundary and placed the Tree as off-limits. The word Satan means...

My hope is in You, Lord.I whisper this refrain to myself, again and again, hoping to soothe my ruffled feathers. Trying to counter the turmoil I feel when faced with vehement opinions that seem false to me. When I witness hatred and stubbornness and a refusal to consider other perspectives. When political differences devolve into name-calling and harsh accusations. My hope is in You, Lord.When I don’t know what to think, Lord, my hope is in You.When I don’t know how to reconcile...

passport is a powerful document. It certifies a person’s citizenship and carries authority to travel to foreign countries. While visiting other countries as a guest, your citizenship remains, along with a certain amount of protection that your country’s government promises to its citizens. And when it’s time to come home your passport guarantees your safe re-entrance. But as wonderful as all of that is, there is something infinitely more valuable: a spiritual passport, the guarantee...

Although a spiritual battle between good and evil is constantly going on around us, it’s easy to neglect giving it our attention, since the spiritual forces at work in it are usually invisible. Angels and demons are no less real than other people are, however, and their impact on us is significant. The Bible urges us to pay attention to the battles taking place in the unseen spiritual realm that surrounds us. We can’t afford to fritter away the time and energy God gives us by ignoring...

Sooner or later, the unexpected—even the unthinkable—will rip through our lives like a Category 5 hurricane. Will our faith survive the gale-force winds?That depends on whether we are sound of heart or slow of heart—whether we have cultivated a robust faith or merely scattered seeds of belief across the surface of our life. Let’s consider how those who followed Jesus responded to the distressing news of his crucifixion. Learning from their experience can help us avoid a similar...

The death and resurrection of Jesus are the greatest events in history and these events continue to be an imperative part of daily life. But the resurrection is more than just an event that happened in history. It’s a source of power that you can experience in your own life every single day. Resurrection power is promised to every believer in Christ and we receive it in the same way that Jesus gave it. That is by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for the sake of our sins....

The resurrection is the central tenet of Christian theology. Not only does the resurrection witness to the immense power of Jesus Christ, the resurrection also proves to us that Jesus was who He claimed to be, the Son of God and Messiah. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die” (John 11:25). In that statement, Jesus also claimed to be the source of both. Apart from Christ, there is no resurrection and apart from Christ,...

Jesus came to this world and changed the course of human history. He left it without a trace—or so it may seem. The historicity and divinity of Jesus is both captivating and controversial. Skeptics have often alleged that no evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ has been discovered outside of the Bible. Of course, Christians don’t need evidence to believe, but the doubters and skeptics couldn’t be more wrong. There have actually been a number of important archeological and...

Loving others is one of the hardest things to master. As long as we live here on earth it will be a proven thorn to many. Murder, famine, injustice, and terrorism bombard us constantly, so the distraction is easy to understand, the hate is justified, but how can we deal? We all can admit Jesus had the perfect love, and we will never attain perfection. He taught the Disciples to be an example of love. This can be done through forgiveness, service, compassion, unity, empathy, faith, and sacrifice....

The story of Esther is one of drama and excitement that depicts heroes and villains. Even though God’s name is never mentioned by name or directly referenced, it’s evident that His presence is present throughout the story of Esther.

Many think that the Book of Esther was written my Mordecai; however there is no concrete evidence that supports this theory. Nonetheless, the story is captivating and truly pulls...
