How to Live to God

How to Live to God

As I was reading Paul’s letter to the Romans today, I started wondering what it means to live to God as Jesus did. And how to do it. Because that’s what Christian living is supposed to be, right? The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:10-11, NIV, emphasis added). Within an hour I laid…

How to Reach Your Full Potential

How to Reach Your Full Potential

Most people seem to think it’s up to them to reach their full potential. They think it’s about will-power and dedication and, yes, those are good qualities.

The Business of Christians Is to Pray

Did you know that prayer is a privilege? I think so. Did you also know that prayer is also our duty? Prayer is our joy, our weapon, and our ministry as Christians.

Blessed Fellowship

Blessed Fellowship

Yesterday, I visited dear friends that I’ve pretty much known since childhood. What a blessing to be with people who have always been there for you no matter what and who share the most sacred thing in life: faith in Jesus Christ. As J. Vernon McGee has said “There is a brotherhood within the body of believers, and the Lord Jesus Christ is the common denominator. Friendship and fellowship are the legal tender among believers.” We truly need each other….
