When we are loved as we are, we are free to change. Knowing we are unconditionally accepted, we are free to shed the unhealthy behaviors we’ve adapted to cover up rejection and lack of acceptance.
Have you ever felt like someone was looking down on you, judging you, condemning you for your conviction or perspective? In grace, we give others the freedom to hold to convictions that are unlike our own and accept them in spite of that difference.
Grace is a place God has invited us. When you’ve experienced God’s grace you get a completely different perspective.
Many Christians never understand the grace they have received. How does a seat at the King’s table impact your life?
It’s tempting to think we earn our rewards with God. But Jesus reminds us that it is all grace.
Trust and rest in God. Christianity without a real experience with God will actually not be Christianity at all.
How can you practice Sabbath-keeping today? Let the fear go. The fear of self-centeredness, self-control, and self-power. Put it aside and rest in the joy of God today.
Humility is the ability to be honest about ourselves. Being sober minded about who YOU are. Speaking with accurate judgement and being realistic. Humility is not about pride.
The celebration of God is a decision we make in advance of our circumsamces. No matter what, celebrate God because of his unchanging character, not your circumstances.
As we grow into another year, we refuse to buy into the narrative of the world. We want to become greater. Take this week to join us in praying John 3:30 daily. He must increase, I must decrease.
Some of us have a good mapped out plan we follow, but is there a “God plan” you’ve been ignoring? What would it look like to relinquish your plan?
No-one likes interruptions. Interruptions can sometimes produce disappointment. But what if God is detouring your timeline for something better to come? How many opportunities are we missing when we look at interruptions as an obstacle?
