Love is word we see often in the Bible. It’s an essential part of God’s nature. The Bible asks us “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? (Romans 8:35). The answer is given to us in verses 37-39 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, not height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us...

Throughout life every Christian will face difficult trials and tribulations that will cause them to question their faith, who they are and whether or not they’re making the right choices.

Jesus taught essential lessons in the actual homes of His followers. While many people think of Jesus’ ministry as teaching to the multitudes, feeding the 5,000, teaching in the temples, the synagogues, the mountainside and the seashore, many of His most personal teachings were done inside the walls of a family’s home. In fact, there are countless lessons throughout the New Testament that Jesus taught within these walls that can guide us in making Christ the focal point of our own homes,...

If I look back at the seasons of my life since becoming a Christian, there is an absolute correlation between my closeness with God, and the quality of my relationships, finances, ministry, career path… pretty much everything else in life. I’m pretty sure my hair grew faster. This shouldn’t come as a shock, of course. We all know life improves when we’re in God’s will, because he not only knows what’s best for us, he desires it. The problem is, even the strongest of Christians can...

All of us have had experiences when our prayers seemed to go unanswered. Sometimes days, weeks, or even years will go by at a time and we still find ourselves wondering, when is God going to answer this prayer?

God has also promised...

The story of Esther is one of drama and excitement that depicts heroes and villains.

His people are also aware of His presence and the deliverance that He will provide. 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...

Love is a very interesting concept. When two people fall in love it’s a beautiful thing. They confess their undying devotion and love for each other and in a fairytale they’d live happily ever after. But we all know that reality is the furthest thing from a fairytale. More often than not, you’ll find that love mirrors our reality in many cases within biblical stories. The Book of Ruth is a fantastic example that exemplifies the rollercoaster ride that love can take us on. Naomi and her husband...

The power of prayer is beyond anyone’s belief. No one can truly understand the grace and strength that lies behind the words derived from the heart and cultivated into prayers. When you communicate to the Lord, the utmost truth and selflessness is produced because you’re shedding all of the preconceived notions and stereotypes that consume your day-to-day. Instead you’re allowing Jesus Christ to take the wheel and be your sole navigator. Powerful prayers can take you into another realm of...

Faith Releasing Prayers That Rock The Enemy There’s nothing that shakes the kingdom of darkness more than a believer that prays in fearless faith in God.

Discouragement, depression, and despondency all lose their grip in the midst of unshakable faith. The Bible says that God gives us a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. Think about this! Faith frees us up to walk...

While most Christians can agree that having a solid relationship with God is extremely important, being secure in your faith and trusting God at all times isn’t always easy.

Any tragic event can cause Christians to lose sight of God. When you experience hardship, crisis...
