Ready for a Risk of Faith?

Ready for a Risk of Faith?

What would it take for you to take a risk of faith? What would it take to get you out of your comfort zone and into an adventure of faith? These are the questions that have been running through my head as I’ve been reading the fourth diary in Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The fourth diary is of a woman with a…

Leaving Self-Righteousness (at the Foot of the Cross)

Last week I started blogging through Mary DeMuth‘s and Frank Viola‘s brand new book The Day I Met Jesus: The reavealing diaries of five women in the gospels. The woman of the second diary is found in Luke 7:36-50. I’ve always been in awe of the woman who wet the feet of Jesus with her tears and wiped them with her hair and soothed his feet with perfume. Would I dare? Do I love Jesus as much as she did?…

Be Fully Alive

Be Fully Alive

Openhearted living is what God wants for us. He wants us to be fully alive, living in grace and loving him and each other. The enemy wants exactly the opposite. He wants us to be separated from God and other people. He wants us to build walls around our hearts. He wants to kill an destroy all the goodness in our lives. The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have…

How Not to Fear Temptations

What makes you yield into temptation? If we know this, we are more likely not to yield into temptation. Because then we know for what to pray. And that’s the key to living well.

Living Forgiveness

Forgiveness is hard. Living forgiveness is ever harder. But we don’t have much choice if we want to have tender hearts and live fully. And the Bible is pretty adamant about forgiving too.

Even if it’s personal against you and repeated seven times through the day, and seven times he says, ‘I’m sorry, I won’t do it again,’…

Forgiveness as a Daily Occurrence

Forgiveness as a Daily Occurrence

What matters in faith journey is what we do when we fall short. Do we deny our shortcomings and start pretending to be what we are not? Or do we run to Jesus? Why is this so important? Because if we keep from admitting that we are sinners, we harden our hearts. Blessedly this is not the end of the story. God can change our hearts, we just need to ask God for forgive our sins. And I will give…

Give Us Today What We Need

Give Us Today What We Need

Do you pray daily? Or do you save it for special occasions? Jesus taught us to ask for daily bread. He told us to ask daily for anything we need, nothing more, nothing less. God is our heavenly father who wants to take care of our needs and sustain us to victorious living. (But realize that Jesus advised us to ask for our needs not wants.) Give us today the food we need.
