A vibrant, authentic, faith is something we all want. But how do we get it? Sometimes it’s hard to put the words we hear on Sunday morning into action in our lives.
The literary term “hyperbole” means extravagant exaggeration. The Bible uses hyperbole to help us understand God’s promises. Difficult to imagine?
Ever notice how trusting God comes easier at certain times of your life than others? But even during the most difficult trials, a close relationship with God can lighten the load you carry.
Becoming a Christian begins with having faith in God. But it actually represents a lifetime decision to mature into the man or woman God has called you to be.
The decision to follow Christ shouldn’t be made lightly. It affects not only your future here on earth, but your eternal destiny, as well. Is it simply a one-time statement? Or a decision that changes your entire future?
Faith isn’t a mere word or statement . . . it’s a life-altering decision to follow Christ. True belief in God goes deeper than words. Are you just going through the motions? Or does your trust in God go deep?
Living the Christian life doesn’t mean you’ll never make a mistake. No matter how hard the perfectionist tries . . . he or she will never hit the mark! Feeling inadequate? Missing the mark? You’re in good company.
A well-written story has us sitting on the edge of our seat. We connect with the main characters, are gripped by the trials they face, and sigh in relief when all ends well.
The Christian life isn’t a spectator sport . . . viewed from the grandstands. It’s an active life . . . played on the field of God’s choosing. But the game of life has a way of delivering joy in victory . . . and agony in defeat. Going through a tough situation right now?
Sometimes God asks us to step out on faith in ways we would never imagine. Perhaps you’ve had to place your trust in God’s provision during a financial struggle, or you’ve sought God’s healing during a major battle with your health.
Sometimes having faith in God means living in uncertainty. Trusting Him when the canvas of our future is blank. Having difficulty entrusting everything to God?
