The Final Victory

The Final Victory

Jesus is distinct from any other political leader. He is God in the flesh. He is a coming King. He will bring earthly powers into account. He will win the final victory. It’s not unusual these days to hear people ask, “Is this the end times.” Maybe. God tells us what...

A Model Citizen

A Model Citizen

More than almost anything else, Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God and that it was now available to everyone. He explained that those who trust Him become citizens of that Kingdom. Jesus also compared the Kingdom to a great treasure that someone would sell all they...

A Traditional Christmas

Every year when I pull out our personalized Christmas ornament from 2009, I laugh at the hilariously botched spelling. Getting a personalized ornament that represents something about our year is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Traditions bring comfort and belonging.  They help us feel connected to our families and to the past.

Living in the Moment

Here is the thing: we experience the taste of heaven and the presence of Jesus when we live in the moment. Living in the moment is underrated. We often recall the past, relishing in memories or regretting past decisions, and dream of the future of what is to come. In the moment is often hard, so we look for an escape.
