Have faith and trust in God.In Rome, Paul was allowed to live in a home while watched by guards. For two years, he welcomed anyone who came to see him. He shared the good news of Jesus with Jewish and non-Jewish people—just like God had promised he would.  Paul...

Living By Faith AND Living with Anxiety

Our knowledge of God tells us He is bigger, stronger, faster, and louder than any storm. Yet, despite that knowledge we may still feel anxious. Knowing we are safe is not the same as feeling we are. The question then arises, “Does feeling anxious indicate a lack of faith?”

Believe

A New Beginning

We all had a beginning. You entered the world in a moment of time. And just like a physical birth, so too, you need a spiritual birth. You may be a child who is only a few years old or an adult well into your later years. But you need to experience new life through a...

Ready.  Set. Go!!  Some of the writers of the New Testament talk a lot about running the race set before us (Hebrews 12:1) and finishing strong (2 Timothy 4:7).  But in order to run, we must be ready to run.  We must train and discipline our bodies to compete the...

They had faith!When we read the Bible today, we can look back and see how God’s Big Story took shape. But none of the people at the time could see with their eyes how God was going to save His people. Instead, they had to have faith that God had a bigger plan. They...

Missing Milestones

Despite the disappointments of this season, remember that God works all things together for good—both His good and our good. The promise that God works all things together for good does not mean that we will acquire all that we want or desire. But those who love God can trust His goodness, His power, and His will to work out all things for our good. We journey together with Him.
