Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. — 1 Peter...

What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger

Posted by Landon Wolfe on

When I was younger, I would often worry about a lot of things. I was very anxious and would find myself in a state of panic about little things — so much so, that I got it into my head that I would never overcome this anxiety. For example, I used to lay in bed in tears at night because I...

Persecution As Evidence

Posted by Nolan Jones III on

Matthew tells us in his Gospel that Jesus began his ministry by preaching the message, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17). Jesus was calling people to turn from their sin and rebellion and surrender their lives to God. After some obeyed his call, he went...

Rejoice In Suffering

Posted by David Griffin on

His speech persuaded them. They called the apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. Day after day, in the...

Love Can Be Funny

Posted by Luke Bedford on

Love can be a funny thing. For so long we dream about finding that right person and falling madly in love, only to realize that love looks nothing like the way our society portrays it. We find out that love doesn’t just happen. Love takes time, effort and, sometimes, a lot of energy...

At ≠ To

Posted by Scott Hiney on

As my faith in Christ has matured over the past five or so years, I’ve really begun to see how affected I am by the words Christians use, both with fellow Christians and non-believers. How we speak to those around us obviously speaks volumes to our place with Christ, but also to our love...

Who Are You Imitating?

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. — Ephesians 5:1–2 Have you heard this story? A new bride is making her first big dinner for her husband and tries her hand...


Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the...
