Faith

Eating some good ol’ solid food

Those who influenced our understanding of God provided us with "spiritual milk." But what happens when our relationship with God matures?

Laying your Isaac down

An "Isaac" is any person or thing that we need to release to God. Are you willing to offer and trust God with yours?

Let’s turn off our conveyor belts

Isn’t it funny how, as Christians, we sometimes create prototypes for how others should look, think and act? And often, the prototypes we create closely resemble us.

Receiving God’s instruction

Have you ever heard the saying, “the game of life”? Well in this instance, your life is the game. And life comes with an instructional manual.

The ‘Believe It When I See It’ Brigade

If you recall, Doubting Thomas felt like Jesus’ resurrection was too good to be true, and he wasn’t about to get his hopes up. Does that sound familiar?

Playing ‘take back’ with God

We all have traces of “fix-it syndrome,” but don’t worry — it’s completely curable.

The power of the tongue

As we continue on life’s journey, we notice that words hurt — sometimes more than sticks and stones. 

Who do you think you are?

Though we may call ourselves children of God, we often live our lives without operating in the fullness of that title.

New beginnings

Don’t begin 2012 with the same heavy baggage you carried in 2011. In the new year, expect God to do a new thing.

The power of giving

FISHERS OF MEN

Why do we limit our gift giving to just the holiday season? Let’s express love through random acts of giving 365 days a year.

What’s standing between you and your dreams?

FISHERS OF MEN

As children, there were no limits to our imaginations. As we grow older, it seems, we trade in our dreams for responsibilities and expectations.

God doesn’t need a bodyguard

FISHERS OF MEN

Have you ever hindered a child of God from receiving His touch? A times it seems we exchanged our shepherd’s staff for holier-than-thou muscle shirts.

Running in love

FISHERS OF MEN

How does your definition of love match up with the biblical definition found in 1 Corinthians? Take this simple test. The results may be eye opening.
