Power to Witness
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” — Jesus Can you imagine? The apostles, the eleven who had walked those ministry years with Jesus then watched Him […]
Live a holy life. Huh?
“For God saved us and called us to live a holy life.” Those could be some really tough words, don’t you think? Living a holy life on our own would be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible. Even though God has saved us, our minds and hearts are so easily led into sin – a place […]

It really will get better.
What we will have in the future is completely beyond our understanding. This verse is so uplifting to me today of all days. I’m dealing with pain that takes my breath. It’s been a week or more since it started. I fully believe the Spirit prompted Paul to write these words because He knows that […]
THE Way. THE Truth. THE Life.
“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” Pretty bold statement, don’t you think? I mean, Jesus knew the truth, but I can just see the people who heard Him scratching their heads and thinking it was awfully bold to be […]
