Jesus is God

Jesus is the son of God. But, Jesus is God. The Trinity is one of the divine mysteries I don't think we'll ever fully understand this side of heaven. One of my favorite explanations of this is in a children's book by Joanne Marxhausen, A Picture of God 3 in 1. This...

(Week 6) A Man Named Philip

Welcome to Week 6 of our study of the twelve disciples of Jesus. Today we are going to take a look at Philip, and like many of the other disciples we aren’t given much information about this man. His name is mentioned in every Gospel, but the only real account of his...

How Is Your Hearing?

I imagine if someone had tried to sell Thomas tickets to a timeshare he would have been skeptical. It seems like Thomas’s personality lent itself to being more cautious, thoughtful, and at times, doubting. I imagine Thomas being more quiet, taking things in, and...

When We Struggle With Doubt

Your doubts do not trouble God. He is not surprised by them nor do they make Him pull away from you. When you find yourself struggling with doubt, you find yourself among some of the "Greats" in the Bible like Job, Abraham, Sarah, Gideon, and Thomas, just to name a...

(Week 5 – Thomas) Overcoming Unbelief

There's one in every crowd. You might have heard them referred to as the: Party Pooper. Debbie Downer. Pessimistic Penny. Negative Nancy. I once knew a girl named Vanessa whose friends called her "Depressa". No one wants to carry these labels, but it seems that they...

Simon the Zealot, Jesus the Cure…

"For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the...

Resist Greed. Be Generous.

“Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness.” - Ecclesiastes 5:10 “Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” - Hebrews 13:5 “It...

Sharing Meals With Sinners…

I don't know about you, but reading about each of the disciples these past three weeks and learning more about them and their backgrounds just makes me fall more in love with Jesus. I love that He chose men no one else would. Men like Matthew, who was by far the most...

The Bottom Line

At the end of every month, millionaires and single moms alike look at the books to examine the bottom line. A rich man wants to know if his well-planned investments yielded a profit. A single mom on a budget is praying she has enough pennies to pay the bills. When I...

Changing The World, One Life at a Time…

It took just one man. His name was not well known. He wasn’t an author, a speaker, or someone who had a large platform. What he did have was a small audience each Sunday morning at his local church where he taught a Sunday school class to a group of young men. His...

(Week 3 Monday) An Unknown Disciple

Welcome to Week 3 as we continue our study on the 12 disciples of Jesus. This week we will be looking at a few men of whom very little is known. One such man is James, Son of Alphaeus, also known as James the Less or James the Younger. This is where our knowledge of...

The Cost of Discipleship

All this week we have studied the sons of Zebedee, John, and James, who God used mightily for His glory. In today’s passage, we learn of their earthly end. John was exiled to the island of Patmos to spend the remainder of his earthly life alone in isolation without...

Servant Leadership

Sometimes I read the Bible like I’m watching a movie. I want the good guy to win, and I’m secretly hoping that Jesus will suddenly burst forth and put the bad guys in their place. This is what the people of Jesus’s day wanted – and, quite frankly, expected – their...

Week 2 – Following Christ, No Matter the Cost

"Following Jesus is more than nodding a head, raising a hand, signing a card, or repeating a prayer - though someone coming to Christ can do any of those. Following Jesus is not returning to life as usual, the only difference being that we’re now going to Heaven....

Faith That Makes You Bold

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13, ESV) Think of that last phrase… “And they recognized that they had been with...

When Your Faith is Little…

“What does it mean to walk by faith? It means to obey God’s Word in spite of the feelings within us, the circumstances around us, and the consequences before us.” - Warren Wiersbe   The heat of the day was fading as the sun began to set. She grabbed my hand and...

(Week 1) God Gave You Your Personality For A Greater Purpose

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved shows and movies about time travel. I love thinking about what it would have been like to be one of the thousands of people in the crowd when Jesus fed the 5,000 and heard Him speak. I love envisioning the scene with all the...

SOLD OUT Introduction

Many can name the cast of their favorite TV show or the full roster of their favorite team. But few Christians know the names of all twelve of Jesus’s disciples. These are the twelve: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and...
