Bible Study/Devotional

What Is the Gospel?

Not only is the gospel a story, but it’s a good story. Good stories have many layers to them, and the gospel is no different.

What If God’s Word Isn’t About Us?

We must recognize that God’s promise is that He will never leave us despite the storms that come our way. The promise is NEVER that the storms won’t come.

Intentional

We are the translators to the world around us of what God is doing and saying. Plan to be a beacon. Ask for someone to be put there for you to love on. Face your moments with intentionality in mind

The Immateriality of God

God is self-existent; therefore, He was not made, He was not created. The divine essence is entirely a spirit; and a spirit cannot be flesh, bone, and blood.

Boldness

What does it mean to be bold in our faith? The answer, according to the Bible, might surprise you…

The Immutability of God

There was never a time when He was not, and there will never come a time when He will cease to be. All that He is now is all that He’s ever been.

Proud To Be A Prisoner

For obvious reasons, the idea of having freedom is not ordinarily associated with being a prisoner. They stir up feelings that are polar opposites.

Burn the Ships

Loving people like Jesus loves us is not a light command. Loving people like Jesus loves us demands that we “burn the ships.”

What a Ride

Then you reach the top. The car tilts, getting ready to plummet down the track. You know it is going to happen fast. It’s going to go one way or the other.

The Immanence of God

Immanence describes a God who is always at hand—actively and personally working through even the littlest details of the lives of His creations.

The Coming Middle East War

As we witness tensions rise with the US and Iran, many are speculating if a possible confrontation may occur between Israel, Russia, Iran and its proxies. The Bible has been saying this very thing for over 2,500 years now that this will occur in the last days.

The Setup Place

Your setup place may not be like my setup place, but when we are in that place, praise Him and worship Him!

The Transcendence of God

The phrase “far above” doesn’t refer to physical distance. God is non-physical, He is omnipresent, He is with us all the time. Therefore, He can never be really far from us.

The Omnipresence of God

Right at this very moment, God is with me; He is close to you; He is next to everyone and everything else in the entire universe.

Apathy

We can have apathy in anything from our jobs, school, spouses, family, children, politics, hobbies, and yes— even, unfortunately, God.

Mystery on Flight 48 to Los Angeles

I would tell people I am usually asleep before my flight even takes off. I must have shared that little factoid one too many times. We all know what the result of pride is; even when it seems subtle, the fall is coming.

Presence of God > Emotional High

Experiencing the presence of God can cause you to feel intense emotions, but being emotional is not the equivalent of being in the presence of God.

Sitting With Sinners

If you think you can’t be used because of your sin or issues, just remember that Jesus chose to dine with sinners far more often than with those who thought they were righteous.
