“We Are Siblings”

As much as I may want to give up on evangelicalism, I cannot give up on Jesus and the church.I must affectionately pray for the family of God, the body of Christ. Those who love me, and those who despise me.As broken as we are, and as separate and splintered and filled with schisms, we are siblings.Eric Mason

“Hate Destroys The Hater…”

For the person who hates, the good becomes bad and the bad becomes good. For the person who hates, the true becomes false and the false becomes true.That’s what hate does. You can’t see right. The symbol of objectivity is lost. Hate destroys the very structure of the personality of the hater .So Jesus says love, because hate destroys the hater as well as the

Jesus Junk…

Americans spend nearly $7 billion a year on Christian merchandise. That’s a lot of Jesus t-shirts and bible covers. But if all the ‘Jesus junk’ was taken away, how would anyone know you belong to Christ?Jesus said the world would know we are his disciples by our love, not by our bumper stickers.Skye Jethani

The Foundation of Self-Control…

“Self-control isn’t just one good character trait, a nice addition to the pantheon of virtues. It’s foundational. Not because it’s more important than other virtues, but because the others rely upon it.Think about it. Can you be faithful to your spouse without self-control? Can you be generous without self-control? Peaceable? Selfless? Honest? Kind? No, even the most basic altruism requires suspending your own interests to

Think About It…

"There are a lot of people that I find it difficult to like. I don’t like what they do to me. I don’t like what they say about me and other people. I don’t like their attitudes. I don’t like some of the things they’re doing. I don’t like them. But Jesus says love them. And ‘love’ is greater than ‘like’. Love is understanding...redemptive goodwill

“Love without truth and honor is licentious in nature. Love without commitment is promiscuous and fleeting. Love without virtue and understanding is savage and selfish. Love without respect is short-lived. Love without these conditions is without God.” ~ David W. Stevens

"As followers of Jesus, we need to represent the grace and love that we keep talking about. Otherwise, we should just stop talking about it." ~ Leighton Flowers

Love was compressed for all history in that lonely figure on the cross, who said that he could call down angels at any moment on a rescue mission...but chose not to – because of us. At Calvary, God accepted his own unbreakable terms of justice. ~ Philip Yancey

"Every relationship we have that has any kind of intimacy or trust also has boundaries. Whether it's within a marriage or a friendship, there is an agreement at some point, whether implicitly or explicitly, that there will be boundaries...because that's what makes a relationship meaningful. So, the idea that I want to have a relationship with God, but have no boundaries, is ridiculous." ~ Skye

"How do we relate to God? Do we seek Him mainly in times of trouble, searching for answers in our distress...but ignoring Him during our seasons of celebration? Are we like the Israelites of old? Easily swayed by the idols of our age, including such things as busyness, success, and influence?" ~ Amy Boucher Pye
