To Our STILL Hurting World…

We don’t know what our next door neighbor is going through. We don’t know what the grocery clerk is going through. We probably don’t understand what trial our mail delivery person is going through. We might not even know exactly what our spouse and children are going through.

But what if we gave just a little more compassion today than we did yesterday? Did you know that that would make a difference, maybe an even bigger difference than you would have ever anticipated?

“And of some have compassion, making a difference:” Jude 1:22

We don’t need to wait until our lives get better to make a difference. We don’t need to wait until we have the resources to make a difference. We don’t need to wait until we’re in a better position or until we get promoted to make a difference.

We can make a difference today — right now, simply by just having compassion; for some, that might mean giving more compassion than we’re used to or comfortable with.

4 Reasons Why Jesus’ Resurrection is Vital to Christianity

Without Christ’s Resurrection, Jesus ministry and purpose would just be a disillusionment. Without Christ’s Resurrection, Jesus would only be seen as martyr who was greatly misunderstood. Without Christ’s Resurrection, we would just be hopeless creation, born to live and currently living to eventually die. Without Christ’s Resurrection, there would be no Gospel because the Gospel, which means “Good News” is the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Hope in Difficult Times

In difficult times like this, we may forget who God is. We may even doubt His sovereignty but today I want to encourage you with a simple truth: We can still have hope in times of uncertainty or difficulty. We can still be hopeful when we feel hopeless. With God’s help and with each other, we can overcome COVID19 and any other things that come our way. If there is anything this time has been teaching us, it is that we are a community and we are capable of more than we sometimes believe. We are capable of demonstrating the love that God invented — unconditional love.

Faith vs. Fear

Because our society, our communities, and the world are afraid. They are afraid of the unknown. But as a Believer, our faith is not in just some “higher being” or even “the man upstairs.” Our faith is rooted in Christ — the Saviour of the world. He has power that no one else can possess. He sees the past, present, and the future. He knows what lies ahead of us and what goes before us. There is nothing and no one that cannot first pass through Christ before getting to us.

6 Dangers in Motherhood (Part 2)

“Are you weak? Do you need strength to get up and cook dinner? Are you tired? Moms who put their trust in the Lord have the promise of new strength and hope that will soar like eagles in their hearts… The only hope we have is a life of complete dependence upon our Father. He sees us with all-seeing eyes, understands us completely, and wants to meet us in the middle of our mess and reduce us from hopelessness. He sent us Jesus to show us the way home with hope.”
