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...

Religion and Irreligion (and Star Trek)

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Every old episode of Star Trek is super interesting, because Captain Kirk is always put in an unwinnable situation, but he also always wins. It’s great. He always wins because he ends up making difficult decisions that fall somewhere between logic and emotion. That’s not a...

God's Will, Not Ours

Posted by Scott Hiney on

This may sound strange, but there have been times when I almost wished I had come to know and accept Jesus later in life, after I had reached a higher level of spiritual understanding. I think, at the heart of it, I wanted to know what it felt like to experience a life of sins (that I actually...
