Stake Your Life on God

If the promises of the Bible are true, why do you hesitate to stake your life on them? I could somehow understand your hesitancy if there were only one promise in the Bible.

Learning to Dance in Grace

Recently, I was looking for some wall art. Something inspirational to start my day out right. So I was browsing on the internet to get a general idea what’s available these days.

It’s about learning to dance in the rain’. It is a beautiful sentiment, don’t you think? Full of positive…

Forgiven Sins Sink to the Bottom of the Ocean

Forgiven Sins Sink to the Bottom of the Ocean

Do you have guilt over something you’ve done in the past? Even after you’ve repented and been forgiven? I’m delivering good news to you. Once God has forgiven you, he chooses not to remember your sins anymore. How do I know? The Bible tells us God will trample our sins under his foot.

Jesus Does Not Need a Makeover

Jesus Does Not Need a Makeover

So many people try to make Jesus something more -or less- he is. But, my dear friends, Jesus does not need a makeover. No matter how much we think it’d great if he were a bit less rough around the edges. But Jesus does not have to look cool or hip. He is perfect just as he is. Jesus does not need a makeover whatsoever, believe me, or we’d be creating an idol and that’s the last thing we’d want, right?…

Grow Strong in Faith

Grow Strong in Faith

Sometimes we think we should have strong faith right away. And that belief might cause some to shy away from faith altogether because they think they’re not cut out for faith. But faith is a gift from God, to begin with. And very few of us start out strong in faith. We slowly grow strong in faith. It’s a process empowered by the Holy Spirit and not about our own merits. Faith is based on grace from start to finish….
