Freedom from Anxiety | Devotional by Charles Stanley – Christian Article

Read: Judges 6:1-16 Anyone who’s struggled with fear and anxiety understands the difficulty of overcoming these emotions. Gideon was a man who experienced great apprehension because he lived when Israel was being oppressed by the Midianites as a result of their rebellion against God. Conditions had become so desperate that Gideon was threshing grain in a wine press so the enemy wouldn’t think to steal it. It was at this low point in his life that the angel of the…

Better a Millstone | Thoughts about God by Bill Strom – Christian Article

“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.” Mark 9:42-43 Jesus was speaking in these verses, and he didn’t mince…

The Purpose of Our Trials – Christian Article

Read: 1 Peter 4:12-14 We shouldn’t expect the Christian life to be easy and comfortable, because believers aren’t exempt from trials. In fact, becoming a Christian may result in increased trouble and suffering. Peter refers to such hardship as a “fiery ordeal,” and tells us not to be surprised by it (1 Peter 4:12). God uses our suffering for His good purposes, and He walks through it with us. Hope in the midst of affliction is possible when we understand…

Mary shows us how acceptance leads to joy – Christian Article

My first pregnancy test My first pregnancy test was in Santiago in 1988. I had to take a urine sample into the chemist – it was long before the days of home testing pregnancy kits. Then I had to wait around in the shop while the chemist went round the back to do a test. I was in my late twenties and recently married but my husband and I had not planned to have a baby so soon. In fact,…

Pressing Undo |Thoughts about God by John Grant – Christian Article

“If the anger of the ruler flares up against you, do not resign from your position, for a calm response can undo great offences.”  Ecclesiastes 10:4 Many items of computer software have an “undo” button. It allows us to erase forever your most recent action and redo it the way you first intended or should have attended. It allows you to dismiss mistakes and proceed as if nothing wrong had happened. It also allows you to restore something you mistakenly…

There is Room | Devotional by Idelette McVicker – Christian Article

“I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2 In my daughter’s preschool, they learned this song early on: “Let’s make room for our friends”. The school’s philosophy is clear: they foster an environment where students learn inclusivity. They make space for each other. I’ve watched the children grow into this atmosphere. On the playground after school or on occasions when we have gone out in a group, they all romp together. They naturally gravitate towards certain friends, but…

This week we will continue to explore 7 ways Jesus showed love, love that we can seek to replicate to those around us. As he was walking along the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter), and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. “Follow me,” he told them, “and I will make you fish forpeople.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.Matthew 4:18-20 In my home life one of the main areas…

I Think Meeting Jesus is Like Getting Hit by A Semi-Truck – Christian Article

I’ve never met anyone who was hit by a semi-truck and lived to tell about it. I don’t mean getting sideswiped on the interstate in your car kind of accident. Nothing involving your car and a semi-truck. What I mean is, I’ve never met someone who stood toe to toe with a semi-truck and lived. Can you imagine the insanity of someone trying to convince you they were hit by a semi-truck as they stand in front of you a…

The unpredictable Jesus – Christian Article

As a Christian, my understanding of Jesus derives from the Creeds. Or, in other words, from the five centuries of theological debate that led to the Creeds – as the church attempted to understand and codify exactly who Jesus was. And so, Jesus is ‘the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father and through whom all things were…

Corrective Lenses | Devotional by Randy Ehle – Christian Article

A friend shared with me something she’d read from Ann Voskamp: “God already sees you as perfect in him.” Based on my own ongoing and painfully slow transformation, I jokingly asked my friend if she ever wondered if God might need glasses. Then I was reminded of a conversation Moses had with God…. When God called Moses to go back to Egypt to lead the people of Israel out of slavery, Moses didn’t exactly jump at the chance. He questioned…

It’s easy to think that if only your situation was different, then life would be better. You might think, “if only I got a new job, or a new house, had better friends or had better parents, then I would really be happy.” I’ve learned that oftentimes, God changes us before He changes our circumstances.

The Faith to Please | Devotional by Fab Batsakis – Christian Article

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”  Hebrews 11:6 (NLT) God asked Noah to build a large boat to save his family, a boat he had seen no one else build in the past. Noah needed divine direction to know the size of the boat and other details. So, Noah embraced God’s desires and plan, working by…

Bible Reflections: A Sudden Second Arrival – Christian Article

Even though it’s likely one of the earliest Christian documents, 1 Thessalonians makes it clear that Paul considers the suddenness of Christ’s return to be apparent to believers. “…for you know very well,” he writes in 1 Thessalonians 5:2, “that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” But he goes on, in verse 4, to describe a major aspect of what it means to be a follower of Christ: “But you are not in…

A Heart of Compassion | by Mary Pinckney – Christian Article

“Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.”  Matthew 14:14 (NLT) How do you keep doing for others in the midst of chaos in your own life?
