If we carry unforgiveness and emotional pain it will never become a lighter load. We may get used to the load, but the load will eventually completely weigh us down and then create bitterness. Jesus wants to carry the load for us and He wants us to forgive those who have caused the pain. It’s […]

“Come, follow me.” Matthew left a prosperous (and corrupt) tax collection business, John left his boat and nets, Paul left his position in a religious sect. What would we be willing to leave if Jesus said, “Come, follow me. ”When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. […]

We all have an opportunity to leave a legacy for those in our circle of influence. In our Coaches/Scouts Bible Study this morning, someone shared a quote by Peter Strople: “Legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people.” What we leave “in” people is so much more meaningful than what we […]

We will never reach our full potential or really know our own identity until we surrender our will to Christ. When we allow Him to work through us, we become complete. Jesus said: ”I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; […]

This morning I’m overwhelmed with grace, forgiveness and with the way God forgets our sins when we confess. If He didn’t forgive and forget, there would be the weight of sin separating us and it would be impossible to have a relationship with a Holy God. We have many reasons for giving Him our worship […]
