Transformed

Today’s verses relay a critical moment in Jesus’ life and ministry: His calling of the twelve disciples. This is the beginning of a story of transformation.  Jesus had many followers (also called disciples) at that time, but He chose only twelve to be His closest...

Meet Kassima – Love God Greatly Portuguese

Working as a cruise and tour director, I have a different lifestyle and timetable than many of my friends. I am in a different place every day, with no weekends or holidays. This makes it very difficult to have a regular routine. There is one routine I never give up,...

Friend of Sinners

“When the experts in the law and the Pharisees saw that He [Jesus] was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, “Why does He eat with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard this, He said to them, “Those who are healthy don’t need a...

Preparing the Way

Preparing the Way

Mark didn’t hide his intentions as he opened his Gospel with the bold statement that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Mark then spent the first eight chapters showing us that Jesus IS the Son of God. Mark’s Gospel is action packed, in part due to his short, to the...

Introduction: The Gospel of Mark

Jesus the Servant   The Gospel of Mark identifies an aspect of Jesus’ character that was significantly different from what the Jews expected in their messiah. Instead of focusing on His impressive lineage, Mark highlighted incidents in Jesus’ ministry that displayed...

LGG Women – Merari’s Story

My first experience in a church was at seven days old. I learned about the Lord and many Bible stories. I participated and followed all that was asked of me. Yet, deep down inside I knew I was not right with God. That deep soul connection came later, as a young adult,...

God is the Shame Breaker

God is the Shame Breaker

Sometimes I go to a dark place in my soul, and I struggle with feelings of not being enough. I will lay in bed at night wrestling with dark thoughts. A sinister voice whispers to me: “You are not loved. You will never be enough. You might as well just give up the...

Our Pasts Are Forgiven

This saying is trustworthy: If we died with him, we will also live with him.  If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us. If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, since he cannot deny himself. -2 Timothy 2:11-13 Have you ever...

The Shame of Exposure

The Shame of Exposure

It is Scriptures like John 8 that completely keep me in awe of God, His love, and His pursuit of me and you. This woman was brought before the King of kings, before the one who hates sin but loves the sinner so much that He left His glory to come to earth to die....

The Shame of Sickness

Time is a funny thing. While it is constant with every minute having sixty seconds and every hour sixty minutes, it can fly by or it can drag. My children share an electronic tablet and they each get half an hour to play games on it. For the one waiting, half an hour...

Faith that Overcomes Shame

Faith that Overcomes Shame

I love the story of Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52. Bartimaeus was a blind man, a beggar sitting by the road when Jesus and His disciples passed by. Bartimaeus was a man whose life was marked by shame. During that time period, disabilities were reasons to cast out people...

Shame Off You

David’s early life was marked with such anointing and strength. The stories we read of David in the Bible are legendary--killing a bear and lion with his bare hands, defeating Goliath with only a stone and a sling, being anointed king of Israel when he was a young...

Broken Pieces

Before our wedding, we received a china tea cup as a wedding gift. Unfortunately, it shattered in the mail. The store didn’t allow me to return it so I made a mosaic frame from the pieces to hold a copy of our wedding invitation. I’ve looked at it many times over the...

The Shame of Weakness

Israel was in trouble. They had continually disobeyed God and done what was evil in the sight of the Lord. God gave Israel over to the people of Midian for seven years. During this time the Israelites made little dens for themselves in the mountains to hide their...

The Shame of Past Decisions

The Shame of Past Decisions

One of the many things I love about the Bible are the numerous stories of redemption, especially the victorious comebacks from the underdogs. Our God has certainly authored some of the greatest stories that still offer us hope today. I have experienced pain, guilt,...

Amazing things happen when one woman decides to give God her all. This is how our Afrikaans branch was started way back in 2013, when a South African woman saw the need for community and biblical knowledge among the women of her nation. It all started with a simple,...
