I Win

In Philippians 1:21-23, Paul shows us his struggle between living on earth and his strong desire to be with our Savior. He says in verse 21, “For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Paul understood that while alive on this earth, his mission was to share the love of Jesus with the world and to let every ounce of strength, every breath, every thought be only about Jesus. And although he wrestled with being here and being with Jesus, he took every opportunity to live for Jesus, knowing his reward would come. Eternal life.

Do What You Do

God is the God of everything! He is at work in us at all times and in every situation. God has a plan in place for those that put their trust in Christ Jesus and that plan is to make us like His Son.   Just as God is at work in us, He expects us to work hard in all things because ultimately, it is God we are serving. We serve not out of obligation but out of our love for Him. Then our ultimate reward will be the joy of knowing Him eternally.


Have you ever forgotten to write a thank you note to someone for a graduation gift, a wedding present or an unexpected gift that meant so much to you? What about the gift of salvation?   We’re told in Ephesians 2:8 NLT, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.” You may not be able to mail God a thank you note but could you tell Him, “Thank You, God for Your gift of forgiveness, love and eternity?” If you haven’t, now would be a good time.

From Stuck to Settled

Let’s face it. When life is bad, it’s hard to believe God is good. Our circumstances frequently change. Relationships, health, finances, and careers all have their ups and downs. During those down times, we get tired and our faith gets shaky. We question God, which isn’t surprising. While questioning God seems like a bad idea, the answers often lead us to a stronger faith. You’ll find out why as Jason shares his life verse.

Be a Lion-Chaser

Chasing lions—yes you can do it. Lions and fear go hand in hand, so confronting them is scary. The question then is this: Are you going to let fear (the lion) overcome you and run from it or are you going to chase your fear and overcome it?    Sometimes what we fear the most is where God wants to use us the most. We need to trust in God and take three steps—pray, prepare and chase that lion.

Teach Me… Purify Me

As babies we are reliant on others to sustain our lives.  So, it is as we journey through our entire lives in relation to our mission and direction.   Light shows the path in the darkness.  God is our light in this world.  He provides the moral light for us to follow.  God has a “way” for man. He has a course, a mission for every man. Of this “way” man is ignorant. He is in darkness. Without God’s guidance we err at every corner.  We are called to walk in God’s truth to worship, honor and obey Him.


In Matthew 28:18-19, Jesus gives us a very clear command, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” The key word is “Go.” It’s not a suggestion or optional. As followers of Jesus, He expects us to do what He asked. Our task is to go. The authority to do this was given to us by Jesus himself. Our responsibility is to reach all of the world. The world needs Jesus now more than ever. We have the amazing task of being like Jesus and sharing the good news of the gospel with the world. We must not keep the truth to ourselves. We have to share it!
