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. Lean...

Has your spiritual life hit a snag? Let’s connect for a moment and take stock of our spiritual timeline. Your timeline might be mired with lots trials or maybe you have coasted for some time.

Jesus was not just a Savior, but He was also a friend, a teacher, and mentor that walked with His disciples for three years. During this time they saw Jesus face almost every situation imaginable. They saw Him consistently anchor Himself in God’s presence through prayer. They watched as He avoided the spotlight and the praises of the crowds. He taught them that in ministry God is the focal point and He refused to give in to the temptation of self-ambition and self-promotion. Jesus led by example. Throughout...

You can change your life by detoxing the mind with Christ. Did you know that we can literally change the structure of our brain with what we feed it every day? Neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf says that 75 percent to 95 percent of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about affects us physically and emotionally. It’s an epidemic of toxic emotions and is literally making us sick. Our experiences and environment shape our thinking and often...

The Bible tells us, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace” (Colossians 3:15). As Christians, we are called to biblical peace. This peace doesn’t focus on the absence of trouble. It is unrelated to our circumstances; it is a goodness of life that is not touched by what happens on the outside. You may be in the midst of great trials and still have biblical peace. But finding daily peace isn’t easy. It is easily stolen. It only...

God loves us and He is always waiting for each one of us to ask Him about how we can deepen our personal relationship with Him. God wants us to know Him.

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. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing what the future will bring – each person must live their life to the fullest and with an open mind. Even though we don’t have a how-to manual on life, Christians have the Bible which provides comfort and substance for the day-to-day. Having a Christian heart is...

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,...
