I have so many choices, a young student confided to her teacher. “If only God would write me a letter and tell me what to do.” more

Devotions

We can experience a sense of calling every day as God sets our agendas. more

Finding Purpose

Lord, in this time of New Year’s reflections, thank You for reminding me that the best way to move forward is to follow You closely and to let the Holy Spirit be my great helper. more

Devotions

All of us have to meet Him at the manger. We have to decide who this baby Jesus is. Who do you say He is? And, who do you need to share the truth of the gospel with this Christmas season? more

Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving. Many of God’s people throughout time thought about God’s special gift of a redeemer, and offered their own gifts in thankful response. more

Christmas

Jesus has come to redeem us. Has it really dawned on you what that means this advent season? God intends for all of us to have a personal spiritual dawning. more

Devotions

In Scripture hospitality is not a gift but a command. It’s the ability to make the environment such that the stranger feels welcome – to make it a place people want to come to. more

Hospitality

Christmas is a season of giving. Many of God’s people throughout time thought about God’s special gift of His son and offered their own gifts in thankful response. more

Christmas

Are you in the habit of giving thanks in all circumstances? When we can’t praise God for what, in His sovereign will, He has allowed, we can praise Him for who He is in the middle of it. more

Devotions

It’s important to encourage people who are seeking a relationship with God to pray, because prayer also prepares the heart to receive the living Word of God. more

Devotions

God cares for the details of our lives and how He answers our cries for help. Even in a mess of your own making, learn to give God your stress and let Him handle it. more

Emotional Health

So how do we overcome prejudice? We must pray about it and ask God to help us. Remember, God has never had a prejudiced thought. more

Culture

I’m sure God had chosen Mary to bear Jesus, yet he allows us to choose to be chosen - to yield our bodies, our whole lives, to do His will. more

Christmas

When we learn how to turn to God and ask the important questions, we will hear the answers loud and clear—and in the hearing “find grace to help us in our times of need” (Heb. 4:16). more

Relationship with God

Peace is faith resting. It's letting go of worry. It's faith in a God who doesn’t make mistakes, who has the whole world in His hands—including your worried world. more

Spiritual Growth

Christ desires us to have peace. If we do not have it, we miss part of the blessings of being a Christian. more

Relationship with God

We often come to the end of ourselves. We run out of energy, strength, even ideas. But we will never run out of God! more

Relationship with God

We need to go and be witnesses of the gospel and trust that God will give us the power to witness effectively. more

Devotions

Discipleship not only involves a call, a commitment, and a commission; it involves a cost - a cost of giving our choices to Jesus and the loss of our independence. more

Devotions

    Run for Your Life
