God gave us the commandment: Honor your father and mother. It doesn’t come naturally to kids, so it’s up to parents to show them what it looks like to honor… God’s way.
Motherhood is full of highs and lows… success and failures… blessings and disappointments. It’s far from easy, but “Leaving a Legacy” for their child that points them to Jesus is doing motherhood God’s way.
“The Crisis in the Family” is real, and we’re in a situation that seems hopeless. But it’s only hopeless if we sit back and do nothing and let the outside world call the shots… when we don’t go to battle for ourselves, our spouse, and our kids.
That Friday, Jesus was dead. But on Sunday, the tomb was empty, and Jesus was alive to show there can be “Life After Death”… for Him and us.
In light of eternity, it’s “The Greatest Investment” we can make. The question we must ask ourselves is this… if we truly believe the value that God places on a soul, how can we do anything less than invest our lives in telling people about Jesus?
When it comes to the future, you’ve got a choice… choose to trust the God who holds each and every day of your past, present and future, or choose to worry about the unknown that tomorrow brings. Jesus tells us, as God’s children, “When You’re Tempted to Worry”… choose to trust instead.
As God told Jeremiah, like a potter works with the clay, so it is with “God at Work” with His children. In the easy times and the hard times, He’s working for our good and His glory.
At the start of the new year, it’s all about beginnings… there’s not much thought given to the ending. But as believers, we should be living with the end in mind. And when we get quiet and ask ourselves, “What If?” 2023 was the last 12 months we spent on earth; what does the Bible have to say about what God would want us to be doing?
Demas is only mentioned a couple of times in Scripture, but there’s a world of difference between the first mention and the last. He started out so strong with so much promise but ended in complete defeat. And what we need to learn from Demas’ life is that, at the end of the day, compromise leads to ruin.

God used two of Jesus’ own disciples to give us a very important example of what a follower of Christ should be like. When Andrew and Philip met Jesus, they didn’t just follow after Him and keep it to themselves… they went and found others who needed to meet Jesus, too.

She didn’t know going to the well that day was a Divine appointment with the Savior of the world. She just needed water for the day, but Jesus showed her He could provide what she needed for all eternity. And after that one meeting at the well, her mission became clear… tell everyone she knew to come and see what Jesus had done.

Changed… Different… Set apart. It’s what God wants us to be. The saying “God loves you just the way you are” is true… He really does. But that’s not the end; it’s just the beginning. Because God loves us far too much to leave us that way.
