How to Deal with Angry People

One of the best ways to let the Wrath of Khan go (sorry for the Star Trek reference) is to simply not let it bother you because it’s probably more their problem than yours.

When People Don’t Reciprocate

When we speak life and kindness over others, even if they remain non-responsive, our acts of encouragement are seeds sown into fertile ground.

Hope Amidst Tragedy

This fallen world is under an umbrella of sin. Sin and death are just normal processes of this world until its final restoration in a new heaven and new earth.

The Invitation

A powerful lesson is tucked, half-hidden in these verses. It wasn’t during prayer or sermon that the glory of God fell in that place, but during worship.

Getting Comfortable With Rejection

This same Jesus, who they had pretty much left everyone and everything to follow, was being dissed by family, friends, neighbors, classmates…basically everyone

Birthing the Bride

The Father longs to birth through them His image of perfect love, sacred bridal romance, and, ultimately, the bridal identity.

Does Evil Disprove God?

For the Christian with a biblical worldview, we have a solid foundation from which we can view evil and suffering. God has set a standard of perfection.

Stay with God

I’m a pretty adaptable person. I mean, I’ve lived sleeping my nights on a futon in a tiny room in Mexico for two months with Calvin.
