My Pain, God's Purpose

Posted by Trey Mixon on

The months after high school graduation are usually followed by change, by excitement, by joy, by all the things. My life after graduation, however, was different. Four months after I graduated (and just six days before my birthday), I was participating in a basketball tournament, a fundraiser...

Experiencing God's Faithfulness

Posted by Nathan Blackley on

When I was in high school, one of my friends would always say, “Tough times never last, but tough people do,” during our scorching-hot football practices in order to motivate us to push through and continue enduring the fatigue and pain that came with these grueling practices. He...

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before...

A Purpose For The Pain

Posted by Lauren Creal on

I think it’s safe to say that we all like to start each new year off on a positive note. We tend to see it as a time to start over, set new goals, have a new perspective, and do everything we can to have a great year. That’s the idea, at least. For my family, the year started off as...

It Is Finished

Posted by Lisalette Hamon on

This devotional was originally published on March 28, 2016. Jesus’ final statement on the cross was “It is finished.” I have known this for some time now, but it wasn’t until last night that I developed a deeper connection to these words. Jesus paid our penalty. My...

Hope Has A Name

Posted by Joey Hensley on

Everything changed when Jesus rose from that grave. The birth, the life, and the death of Jesus do not carry the same meaning without the resurrection. Because Jesus was victorious over death, we can now have relationship with our creator. Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we...

Nothing Else Matters

Posted by Joe Paris on

“If Christ is risen, nothing else matters. And if Christ is not risen, nothing else matters.” — Jaroslav Pelikan Every area, every detail, every element of life hinges upon the resurrection. If Jesus Christ is risen from the dead, then nothing in life matters in light of...
