Be Different for Christ

Be Different for Christ

Being different is not a goal itself but a co-product of being a faithful servant of God. When we do God’s will, we will stand out from the crowd. We will be different but God has a way to bring the best out of us. We will be blessed beyond measure. God wants us to become more and more Christ-like. We are not holy by nature. And we don’t become holy by accident either. We need God’s grace to both…

Does It Matter What I Choose Today?

Does It Matter What I Choose Today?

What do you think? Does it really matter what you choose today? The world is big, you are small…does it really matter what you choose today? I dare to say yes. It does matter what we do each day.

A (Wo)Man After God’s Own Heart

A (Wo)Man After God’s Own Heart

What’s your goal in life? Mine is to become a woman after God’s own heart. I can’t do it. But God can. In order to become a woman after God’s own heart I need to seek God’s heart. I need to abide in God’s presence and let the Holy Spirit mold me. The Bible tells tells us that David was a man after God’s own heart (1 Sam. 13:14, CEB). David was not perfect by all means but his heart…

Readiness 4 Radical Obedience

Readiness 4 Radical Obedience

The Bible is full of stories of obedient and faithful men and women of God. I truly appreciate that we have these saints gone before us. We can learn from them what it is to live out our faith in the midst of challenging life events. Today I want to talk about Joseph, a central character in the Christmas story. This is how the birth of Jesus Christ took place. When Mary his mother was engaged to Joseph, before they…
