The Grace Solution (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 274)

the-grace-solution

Proverbs 29:11 (NLT)
Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.

There are a host of things you can’t control in this life. You can’t control the color of your school, where you were born, or who your parents are. You can’t control what happens to you on a daily basis, what people say or think, or the situations you encounter. You also can’t control the way you look, how tall or short you are, or your past. Many people waste time trying to control the things and the people that are simply beyond their power. Read more…

how-deep-do-you-live

Matthew 20:28 (NLT)
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Serving and giving to others is the heartbeat of the Christian life. As believers, it is not just our duty to serve, it is a great privilege and the highest honor. Too many of us think that service is for other people. But nothing could be further from the truth. Service is not for other people, it is for us to do in every single aspect of our lives. It isn’t something to be tacked on at the end of a long day; it is what we do in every day. Read more…

Change Begins with a Choice

Ephesians 4:22 (NLT)

Change is hard and that’s why it doesn’t just happen on its own. It requires work on our part. The only way change happens is if we make the choice for it to happen. It isn’t enough to talk about change or to wish for change or to even desire change. Real change begins with a choice. It requires a decision of the will. Read more…

It’s All About Growing (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 109)

It’s All About Growing

2 Peter 3:18 (NLT)
Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen.

Life is all about growing. And God made us to grow. He doesn’t want us to stay babies in our faith. He cares more about our spiritual growth than anything else. All throughout nature and humanity, we see signs of growth. Tiny seeds grow into big oak trees. Little children grow into adults. Every stage of life is an opportunity to grow, to give love, to develop character, to fulfill purpose, and to depend on God.  Read more…
