Letting Jesus In (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 359)

letting-jesus-in

Luke 2:7 (NLT)
She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.

What do we make room for in our lives? Our spouses. Our children. Our significant others. Our pets. Our work. Our hobbies. Our daily agendas. Our faith doesn’t always make the list. Sometimes, we tend to put faith on a back burner while pursuing what we deem as more important. Other times, faith just gets pushed to the back burner because we allow so many other things to crowd our line of vision, hearing, and feeling. Just imagine how we would feel if a family member or friend told us that they didn’t have space for us at the dinner table. Read more…

I Am Life (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 290)

i-am-life

John 11:25-26a (NLT)
Jesus told her [Martha], “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die.”

When we talk about and tell about why we choose to believe in Jesus Christ, several words may come to mind. For example, we may think about his love for us. We may talk about his grace and mercy and how it is all a gift to us. We may even consider the historical fact that he was sent from heaven to earth as a baby to save all of mankind from our sins. Some think about the miracles he worked; others think about the strength he personally gives. Read more…

10 Reasons Why Good Friday Is So Good (40 Days of Easter Truth #38)

eastertruth38

Easter Focus Passage: John 19:28-30

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!”

29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth.

30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

Easter Truth – DAY THIRTY-EIGHT:

Good Friday, the Friday before Easter Sunday, holds the complete satisfaction of God, the fulfillment of Jesus Christ, and the grace poured out for the entire world in a crucible called Calvary. The bloodied, battered, heartbroken, burdened Jesus slowly trudges up the hill, bearing a cross and the sins of the entire world on His back. If God had decided to end everything with Good Friday, then we would be men and women most miserable, living a life of ultimate despair and meaninglessness, headed straightway to an end with no hope. Jesus’ death was both the worst and the best. He died so that we may live. He bled so that we may be clean. He was made sin so we could be made righteous. Good Friday was a bad day for Jesus, but it was a good day for all for us. Read more…

What Jesus Wants for Christmas

Christmas is a time of celebration, family get-togethers, shopping, parties, food, and gift-giving. We make lists and check them twice of what we want to give to our family and friends. We think of gifts that would make the special ones in our lives smile and give them the experience of a Christmas that they will remember. Carefully wrapped in beautiful gift-paper, we lay all the presents we have gathered under the Christmas tree, waiting for that beautiful Christmas morning when our loved ones will be excited to have received what was on their wishlists.

Let’s imagine for a moment that Jesus has a Christmas wishlist too. He also has a Christmas tree under which He has already placed His special gifts for us. What do you think is on His wishlist? What do you think He would like to see under His tree?

10 Reasons Why Good Friday Is So Good

1. Good Friday is so good because it teaches us how to love. Love is one of the greatest forces in the world. Nothing is made more evident and more real to us than Jesus death on the cross. Jesus showed His love, He prove His love, not just with words, but with actions. By Jesus’ example of unconditional love for us, He indirectly showed us how to love one another.
