Live By Faith, Not By Sight

My pastor shared a quote this weekend that really spoke to me, "My deepest awareness of myself is that I am deeply loved by Jesus Christ and I have done nothing to earn it or deserve it."  Brennan Manning.

As I looked around our worship center, I saw a lot of visitors and wondered, how many are believers and rest in the reality of His love?  And . . .  how many have not yet placed their faith in Christ?

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is devoted to helping people live by faith . . . faith in Jesus Christ. And in this past weekend's ...

Lies Women Believe About Sin

Having just celebrated Easter, I had a lot of opportunities to discuss the topic of sin with my kids and help them understand the reason why Jesus died for us.  After many years of walking with the Lord, I still get emotional to think that it was my sin that nailed Him to the cross.  But, how does this affect me on a daily basis?  What do I believe about sin?

Easter: A Love Story

A friend asks on her Facebook page, “So when did Easter become the new Christmas? What's up with these Easter baskets stuffed with toys?  When I was a kid we got a chocolate bunny (a solid one if you were lucky) some jelly beans and a couple of marshmallow chicks and called it a day!”
