Why Self-Help Doesn't Really Help

Why Self-Help Doesn't Really Help

The self-improvement market was worth $9.9 billion in 2016 (thanks to a little research data). Did you know you can think and grow rich and only work 4 hours each week? Since you’ve freed up so much time because you’re highly effective, you can have your cheese moved, be an untethered soul, learn the 48 laws of power, understand big magic, and wash your face! Or, you can figure out the sacred secret now…

Emmanuel is Your Shelter, You are Safe: John 12

Emmanuel is Your Shelter, You are Safe: John 12

Today holds a beautiful message for you. A message of safety. Shelter. Hope. It’s time to humble ourselves at the feet of Jesus and become the fragrance of Christ.

Seeing Jesus Through Fear, Anxiety, and Discouragement

Seeing Jesus Through Fear, Anxiety, and Discouragement

This chapter is a word for the discouraged. The broken. The weak.

John 9 was orchestrated from the beginning for the ones who have been told they’re not enough. That they’ll never make it. For people who’ve been talked down to, pushed aside, and told to leave. This study is for the believers who believe they made one choice, and it cost them an irredeemable life…

Who Is Jesus: A Good Man? A Prophet? A Liar? God?

Who Is Jesus: A Good Man? A Prophet? A Liar? God?

Maybe you’ve got your story straight on Jesus. Or, maybe you’re still struggling with understanding Who this Man is, and how He integrates into your life. This week, we’ll read John 7 and answer some of these questions that you—or others who ask you—have.

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 5:1-15)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 5:1-15)

We could spend many hours debating the versions of the Bible, but that’s not the purpose of this platform. When people want to suck you into a scholarly debate about translations and which is “better,” here’s what I would say…

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 3)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 3)

“If we were asked to read to a dying man who did not know the gospel, we should probably select this chapter as the most suitable one for such an occasion; and what is good for dying men is good for us all, for that which we are; and how soon we may be actually at the gates of death, none of us can tell.” ~Charles Spurgeon

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 2:1-11)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 2:1-11)

It’s time for you to grab onto this heart-changing statement from John 2 and allow this Truth to literally transform your walk.

I’m still ruminating on it myself, but it has stirred and re-stirred my heart. I know, I know, you just want me to get on with it and show you, and here it is…

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel - John 1

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel - John 1

The fourth gospel is essential. John gives us a direct look into the heart of Jesus—into who Jesus is. It was a book that was written for one purpose: that we might believe. What a blessing to have a book written primarily to help us understand the character of Christ and the meaning behind the events the Son of God performed so we would believe that Jesus saves.

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel + Giveaway Time!

The beloved disciple, John, writes a profound story that is both simple and deep. He doesn’t tell us much about himself, but he tells us plenty about who Jesus is. What a beautiful picture of the life we are to lead on this earth…

Also, I thought it’d be fun to start 2019 off with a groovy GIVEAWAY. I’m currently reading The Beloved Disciple: Following John to the Heart of Jesus by Beth Moore…

A Watered-Down Word

A Watered-Down Word

Many “pastors” and “people at the pulpit” want to skirt or downplay hell. Friends, God’s Word is true. If hell were not real or eternal, the work of Christ would be unnecessary. Let’s study Hebrews 9 this week and then choose our road wisely in a world that loves a watered-down gospel.

The Anchor You Need

The Anchor You Need

Just because we wrestle with Scripture doesn’t mean God is trying to be tricky; this is God teaching us to discover Him. To work out our salvation (not work for it), as it says in Philippians 2:12. When we don’t work out our salvation using His Truth as absolute, we will drift. We begin rationalizing instead of searching and discovering with the use of Scripture. I bring this topic up because there’s a word of caution coming….

Challenging Your Misunderstandings of God

Challenging Your Misunderstandings of God

One of the [most detrimental] misunderstandings of the Church today is the nature of God. Every individual, because of past experiences, personality, spiritual upbringing, and so forth develop their own “idea” or "belief" of who God is. We piecemeal ideas about what God is like and how He operates based on our encounters…
