A Withered Life


Posted by Andrew Knight on

Your shortcomings are not the hurdles to keep you from God. They are the vehicle to get you to him. Did you ever imagine that the very worst parts of your life were the parts that God wants the most? Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand… And he said...

Traveling Light


Posted by Steve Glenn on

“Come unto me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”— Matthew 11:28 In Max Lucado’s book, Traveling Light, he talks about one of the problems that Christians have in life. It is the problem or tendency that we have to try and carry burdens that we...

We're Not Hall Monitors


Posted by Lisalette Hamon on

I have a tendency to act as a sort of hall monitor for grace too freely lived in. What I mean by that is I have a sort of list in my head/heart that gauges if someone is taking for granted the grace that was freely given to them through Jesus Christ. For instance, if someone is doing something...

Rest Is God's Best


Posted by Joy Vroonland on

I have a list of life priorities. In the God category, I’ve included devotion, study and writing. The fourth item in that category is rest. When I originally wrote the list, rest was not on it. I added it after further deliberation about what I thought my highest priorities should be...

The Gift of Pain


Posted by Joe Paris on

“Pain demands the attention that is crucial to my recovery.”— Philip Yancey Several months after the tragic events of 9/11, I found myself in a Barnes & Noble, looking for some type of answers to that horrific event. I remember asking the age-old question: Why do bad...

What's Your Pool?


Posted by Pat Cooper on

Typing the words "stupid questions" into Google, I selected "50 Stupid Questions Asked on Yahoo! Answers" and began reading some seriously absurd questions that made me wonder what train these people fell off of. Be that as it may, at the pool of Bethesda, Jesus asking a man who had suffered...

You Are Noticed


Posted by Ian Crosby on

We all hate feeling alone. We may like to spend time by ourselves sometimes, but there’s a huge difference between being by yourself and feeling alone. Being by yourself is a physical thing. Being alone is a mental, emotional and psychological thing. Being by yourself is solved by others...

Created for Now or Eternity


Posted by Nolan Jones III on

One of the main things I have come to understand in life is this: belief determines behavior. Now, not all of our behavior flows directly from our beliefs, for each of us can be very good at behaving irrationally at times. But, for the most part, our behavior flows directly from what we believe...

Asking Isn't Enough


Posted by Randy Wade on

The story of the young ruler who asked Jesus what must be done to inherit eternal life has always fascinated me. He was bold enough to ask the question but not courageous enough to respond in obedience to the answer. I think we do the same thing far more often than we would like to admit. Have...

Trading Rubble For Treasure


Posted by Paul McDill on

The story of the rich young ruler has always been a fascinating story to me. You have a guy who seemed to have everything, yet was obviously searching for more. As this man comes to Jesus, he comes like many of us do. He comes needy. What we discover is that, even though this man has a lot, he...
