A Joyful Life

    Peace That Rules The Day
    There are many things in this world that can steal our peace. Paul encouraged the people in Colossae find their peace in Christ. He told them that peace found in Jesus should rule our hearts. May we trust in our sovereign Lord and find our ultimate peace in Jesus Christ.

    Faith That Endures
    The author of Hebrews explains the reality that there are people that claim to follow Jesus, but fall away from the faith. However, he does not suggest that one can lose his or her salvation. What he does say is that Jesus Christ keeps His true followers from falling away, and He uses the local church to help lead His people on the path of sanctification. May we watch our hearts closely, exhort one another, and keep our eyes on Jesus, so that we may finish well.

    A New Life Of Love
    God gave the Israelites the command to love him with their entire being knowing that they would be unable to fulfill it perfectly. There is only one who was able to love God with His whole being perfectly, and it was Jesus Christ. Jesus came to earth, died in our place, and rose again so that we could give God our whole hearts. May we repent of the times in which we do not love God fully, and may we turn to Christ everyday and ask Him to give us a deep love for God and a desire to listen and obey.

    Ambassadors for Christ
    In II Corinthians 5, Paul charges us to be ambassadors for Christ. As ambassadors for Christ, we must be controlled by the love of Christ, and we must die to ourselves and live for Christ. We also begin to see things differently because we have been made into new creatures. God has given us the ministry of reconciliation, so we can boldly proclaim the Good News of Jesus. May we represent Jesus Christ well as we love God, love people, and love our world by displaying and declaring the Good News of Jesus.

    Out Of Sodom
    Throughout Scripture we see consistent themes of God's sovereignty, man's sinfulness, and the salvation of God's people. The rescue of Lot out of Sodom and Gomorrah is a picture of the greater salvation to be found in Jesus Christ. In this passage we see many parallels to the Good News of Jesus. We see the reality of the impending judgment, the severity of our sin, the offer of salvation, God's ability to save, and the call for us to exhibit a lifestyle of repentance. And underneath it all we see God's sovereign thread of the promise of salvation even in the midst of the darkest sins. May we share this Good News in our community and in our world.

    Gospel Mystery and the Church’s Revelation
    In Ephesians 3, Paul explains that mystery that was given to the prophets in the Old Testament had been revealed. The truth that the Gentiles were now included in the family of Jesus Christ through His gospel was this "mystery" that Paul referred to. The mystery is revealed by God to everyone, and the Church is responsible to share the Good News of Jesus to the world.

    Mercy
    In the parable of the unforgiving servant, our own forgetful tendencies are exposed. We often fail to show others mercy because we forget how much Christ has forgiven us. When we look to Jesus and see the infinite mercy He continues to pour out on us, we can learn to show the same love toward others and learn to forgive as we have been forgiven.

    Beyond The Three Days: Our Need For Jesus Since Eden
    If you journey through the Bible, you can see how the Easter story encompasses far more than just three days. From the early days in Eden, God promised a Messiah that would come to redeem mankind. Jesus, God the Son, was always God's plan. As we live each day, may God open our eyes to see the greatness of Jesus in His Word, and may we share His Good News with others.

    Who Is My Neighbor Pt.2
    The lawyer in Luke 10 was hoping to be able to justify himself by asking Jesus to clarify who his neighbor was. If loving his neighbor neighbor meant loving his fellow Jews, he likely would have been justified. However, Jesus made it very clear to him, and all of us, that loving our neighbor means that we must lay down our pride, and serve all people no matter their race or beliefs. May we truly seek to love God, love people, and love others by displaying and declaring the good news of Jesus Christ.
    Scripture: Luke 10:29-37
