“’Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?’ The expert in the law replied, ‘The one who had mercy on him.’ Jesus told him, ‘Go and do likewise,’” (Luke 10:36-37, NIV). In this passage of Scripture, Jesus is talking to an expert in[…]
“Those who hate him he will repay to their face by destruction; he will not be slow to repay to their face those who hate him,” (Deuteronomy 7:10, NIV). Ever come face-to-face with a bully? They can be extremely intimidating. No matter what we may try to do to avoid them, they always find their[…]
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ,” (Galatians 6:2, NIV). Living the Christian life can be a challenge, especially when we’re dealing with our own.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well,” (Psalm 139:14, NIV). When we think about value and worth, we think about a number of things. What may be valuable to someone may not be what’s valuable to someone else. It could be a family[…]
“Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 16:3, NIV). Having a relationship with Christ can lead us to focus primarily on the spiritual aspect of our lives. We know this world is temporal, so why waste time on a world[…]
“‘Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?’ declares the Lord. ‘Do not I fill heaven and earth?’ declares the Lord,” (Jeremiah 23:24, NIV).

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,who put darkness for light and light for darkness,who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter,” (Isaiah 5:20, NIV).

“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you,” (John 14:26, NIV). Once we make the decision to follow Christ with our lives, the real work begins. As the Holy Spirit enters our life[…]
“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it,” (Matthew 16:25, NIV). Have you ever run into a situation where you lost something? I’m pretty sure you might be thinking about your keys. They can end up in the strangest of places. When we[…]
“For the LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?” (Isaiah 14:27, NIV). Everyone loves a plan. We love to plan vacations and all the sites we wish to see. We love to plan outings with family and friends. We love to[…]
“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”(Luke 11:13, NIV). If we take a moment to inquire about the children in this world, we might be surprised as to what[…]
“When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man,” (Genesis 32:25, NIV). Eleven years ago, God took me through the ringer. It wasn’t something I looked forward to and was thankful the Lord gave me[…]
“The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces,” (Psalm 119:72, NIV). Everywhere we look, we see everything revolves around money. Money is a necessary commodity if we want to survive. We have to have money to eat and meet the basic necessities of life. We have to[…]
“It is good for me that I was afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes,” (Psalm 119:71, NIV). If we never have any struggles, we never really learn how to live. We won’t learn how to solve problems, find solutions, or answers to our questions. Struggles are the mechanism the Almighty uses to show us[…]
“I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,” (Ephesians 3:17-18, NIV). When we think about roots, we think about the weeds in our yard that intertwine themselves with[…]
“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger,” (Proverbs 15:1, NIV). If we really want to be followers of Christ, then we will be a people of peace. Peace doesn’t pursue vindication, retaliation or annihilation. It doesn’t make enemies or vent in frustration. It doesn’t go out of its way[…]
“His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior; the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love,” (Psalm 147:10-11, NIV). When we think about being used by God for a higher purpose, it’s in our nature to[…]
“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband,” (Revelation 21:2, NIV). Every woman anticipates the day she gets married to her one and only true love. There are so many details to attend too; the flowers need to be[…]
“Judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment,” (James 2:13, NIV). Forgiveness and mercy are a difficult thing. Some people believe if we’re truly forgiving and merciful towards someone we’ll forget about the offense, but that denies our humanity. Some people think when we forgive we[…]
“You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat,” (Romans 14:10, NIV). Have you ever found yourself being followed by a police officer? Sometimes it’s hard to tell, especially if they’re in an unmarked car. But when[…]
“In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” (Psalm 56:4, NIV). Living in a world where we hear of violent atrocities can cause us to wonder, panic and fear, but especially when it revolves around a holiday, can cause uncertainty. We struggle[…]
