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…

Zero to One Hundred (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 125)

Zero to One Hundred

2 Corinthians 5:21 (NLT)
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

When Jesus died on the cross, He took our sin and stood in our place so we can be made righteous before God. He didn’t just die for the sake of dying. He died to fulfill God’s perfect standard of holiness. He was 100% perfect. We are 0% perfect. If Christ had been anything less than 100%, even if He had been 99.9%, He could not take our place on the cross. Read more…

Because of Jesus … (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 87)

Because of Jesus…

1 Peter 1:3-4 (NLT)
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.

Everything that we have and all that we are is because of Jesus. He is our King, our Saviour, and our High Priest. We are able to live, move, and have our being because of Him and He deserves our continuous thanksgiving. We owe all our blessings to the mercy of God, not to our own merit. Being born again through Christ, we have a lively, impenetrable hope that carries us through the best and the worst days of life.  Read more…

Something Greater Is Coming (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 86)

Something Greater Is Coming

John 19:41-42 (NLT)
The place of crucifixion was near a garden, where there was a new tomb, never used before. …Since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.

After Jesus’ earth-shattering death on the cross, it’s hard not to think of what was going through the minds of those closest to Jesus during His life. He had warned them ahead of time that He was going to die. But, since they were so used to His miracles, they at least had an inkling of hope and anticipation that His death was not the end.

The 7 Most Powerful Words – He Is Not Here; He Has Risen (40 Days of Easter Truth #40)

eastertruth40

Easter Focus Passage: Matthew 28:1-8

1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.

3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.

4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.

6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

Easter Truth – DAY FORTY:

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most powerful events in all of history. It is the link by which sinful man can enter the presence of the Holy God. The resurrection bears great significance to us as Christians for if the resurrection had never happened, then our living and our faith would be in vain. The endpoint of our belief is in the fact that Jesus died, was buried, and then rose from the dead to sit on the right hand of God the Father. Read more…

Hope Built on the Greatest Prayer of All (40 Days of Easter Truth #37)

eastertruth37

Easter Focus Passage: Luke 22:39-44

39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.

40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”

41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,

42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.

44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

Easter Truth – DAY THIRTY-SEVEN:

The events that transpired in the Garden of Gethsemane help us gain a better picture of Jesus’ humanity and His divinity. The Mount of Olives is a familiar place to Jesus and His disciples. They had been here many times before and were now at this place once again. Jesus enters the Garden with a heaviness on His heart and a burden on His mind. This heaviness and burden forced Him to kneel down and pray to God the Father. Read more…

Our Servant, Jesus Christ (40 Days of Easter Truth #28)

eastertruth28

Easter Focus Passage: Isaiah 52:13-15

13 See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him—his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness—

15 so he will sprinkle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand. Read more…
