One of the last things Peter commands in his second letter is for us to “grow in the grace…of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Pet. 3:18). Grace is unmerited favor. It is treating others better than they deserve. This is what Jesus does for us. “While we still were sinners, Christ died for […]

Welcoming Others

September 9, 2021

“Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” (Romans 15:7) It is fascinating how we emphasize certain commands in Scripture while overlooking others.

Fruitful Conversations

Finding Contentment

A Hope That Changes Everything

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3) “But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no […]

Seek First the Kingdom of God

March 30, 2021

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness…” (Matt. 6:33) What does it look like to seek first the kingdom of God? It means prioritizing the kingdom of God over my wants and desires. It means my first concern is what is best for the kingdom of God. It means my loyalty towards God […]

Always Choose Christ
