If you could see God's face in this moment, how would He be looking at you? You might be surprised and amazed by what you would see, because of what is revealed to us about Jesus "In Judgment."
May the Holy Spirit keep us from making false judgements as we look at others, that we may be filled with His power to share God's message of love.
You need a miracle. We all do. There are situations in our lives and in this world that we have no power to fix. But when you find yourself in the dark because you have no idea what to do, remember how Jesus was revealed "In Miracles."
The miracle of faith gives us our life back! Count your miracles!
When you're surrounded by darkness, it's amazing what light you'll find, when you see how Jesus is revealed "In Baptism."
The more we recognize the Glory of Christ, the more we'll come to realize and appreciate that God's glory is meant to shine in our hearts! We begin the Epiphany season by seeing "Jesus' Glory Revealed in Baptism."
When there's a battle before you and challenges around you, everything can change with just "A Glimpse of Hope."
What does Eve's temptation have to do with Christmas? God wants our affections directed away from false gods that make us happy for the moment to focus on Him, His love. He wants to give us a new heart this New Year.
Presence (meet the King who gives us back our lives)
Presents (offer our greatest treasures to Him)
Pre-sense (listen to His warnings so we are safe in our faith)
When you get a little older and roles change a bit, Christmas can look completely different. How, different then, might Christmas look from the perspective of the angels? What insights might they give us to the birth of Christ and what it means to the world? Get a glimpse of what Christmas looks like "Through Angel Eyes."
God paid attention to every detail when He fulfill His promise to send a Savior. If He kept this big promise, know that He will keep all of His promises - to give us courage, to not let us fall, to guide us and to love us. Now and in eternity.
When Jesus was born, people were living ordinary, everyday lives. Except for Mary, Joseph and a few shepherds, no one else knew that the Savior had been born! When God comes into our everyday lives it doesn't look spectacular - it looks like love, it looks like resurrected lives, it looks like our forever, but also our today.
In the hard moments.... when it feels like too much....
...that's when love does it's best work. You can cast it all to God, because He has promised you "Love."
When you feel lost, you can move forward knowing that God promised "To Guide Me."
When the path of life is shaky or there's danger around you....
...remind yourself, I can look to the One who has promised me "Faith: That You Won't Let Me Fall."
Our Big God doesn't just want us to trust Him with the big things. We can have faith that our Big God will come through in the everyday little things too!
When you're afraid to move forward....
or don't know what to do....
...there's God, who has promised to give you "Courage."
There is so much that the world is throwing at us. But in the face of it all, God, "You promised to give me courage!"
Are there times in your life where you are not thankful? Maybe we all need a change in perspective!
I am thankful for YOU!
Ever feel like you're nobody, because you listen to the devil, the world or even what goes on in your own head? God's grace says you are His child, the empty tomb confirms His love for you! You ARE somebody!
When you look at your life, it looks average. Jesus is IN the average - look for Him. When life doesn't make sense - look for Jesus there. And one day, we will see Jesus in all His glory - for eternity!
It's hard, when you've lost something or someone important.
But Jesus has made it so you can live with "Hope Restored."
You may fall... but God can restore!
Hard to believe... and that's exactly the point! God has done and continues to do reality-rocking work. He's given us "Crazy Faith."
It's time to break out of prison... the prison of fear!
Opportunity is in front of you. What's your response? God can transform you and the world whether you're "Ready Or Not."
From the beginning, God has always wanted our hearts!
A wall or a bridge. Everything changes based on the "If." Philemon 8-11 reminds us how we get to have a truly counter-cultural view of people and ability to restore relationships because of Jesus.
An epic story of forgiveness, love and reunion. God is still working through us today for the good of His Kingdom and love for one another!
