When we feel powerless we feel fear. Our situations can seem bigger than we have answers for. God wants you to know the power you have to live for Him and expand His kingdom. If we understand Him, we will become more like Him.
Not knowing who we are in Christ can lead us to adopt false identities. In this introductory message to the book of Ephesians, Paul lays out for the believers what their real identity in Christ was. That reality is true for us as well.
No one likes waiting, especially when we have no defined time of how long that will be. In the text for this message, Jesus encourages his disciples as he reads them for their season of waiting. They will need every word.
The world seems full of injustices and moments when it seems irreparably broken. It would be easy to lose hope or live in bitterness. But Jesus followers are called to live with a different perspective that doesn’t give up.
Some of the most challenging moments of following Jesus are set in relationships. When a relationship falls apart, do you grab a hammer or an eraser?
Let’s just say it, following Jesus can be hard at times. How do we handle those difficult moments?
Are there moments when you feel you are living in a world where you can’t see the way forward? In those moments of darkness we wish we had someone to take us by the hand and lead us forward. In our text today Jesus radically transforms a man’s life who is blind because the man refused to let Jesus pass him by. His pain is the very thing that leads him to cling to Jesus.
What do you need to take someone at their word? In the message we look at a dad who was desperate for help and all he had was the word of Jesus. Maybe that is all you need too.
Faith, even mixed with doubt, unleashes the power of God. Jesus doesn’t need bullet-proof faith to work miracles, but he does need some expression of faith in him, however small it may be. If you are struggling or clinging to faith, don’t give up. Hold on to Jesus!
If Jesus did it all for us, what role do we have? We have the role to believe in New Life. There was a penalty for our sin that Jesus took on in exchange for that New Life He gave us. He took on your death so that you can have life.
Depression is like a cave. It is a dark place with no clear road map out and many pitfalls. To experience depression does not mean you aren’t loved, you don’t love God enough, or you aren’t saved. We are invited to bring our pain to Jesus because he knows how it feels and he can relate to us.
Anxiety is the most common mental health issue in the USA. The past year has added to the already high levels we face. If you don’t deal with it in helpful ways it can have negative physical and spiritual consequences. When your mind is under attack, how do you fight back?
