Reading: Matthew 27:45-54At the 6th hour of the day a darkness fell over the land and lasted until the 9th hour. During that darkness Jesus, on the cross, cried out, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" This statement was misunderstood by some hearing it in person and is still misunderstood today. Was there a break in the relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Was the Father so cruel that He wanted to...

Reading: Romans 6:1-11God's grace is truly amazing. He makes a way for restoration. The Holy Spirit dwells in us and shares with us the nature of God. What does our new life in Christ look like?  We have died to sin, as pictured by our baptism, but still have cravings for sin. If it wasn't a serious matter, Jesus Christ would not have died to pay the price for it. But He did, and He made us free. So, because God's Grace...

Reading: Matthew 16:22-33Life can be overwhelming at times. Everyday we, and everyone else in the world, experience events that affect the life we live. Some are short and transitory, others may be prolonged. Both can be profound and change lives forever. How we react depends largely on where the focus in our lives is. Both, peace in the storm and shelter from the storm, are found in Jesus Christ. Those who do not know this need to...

Reading: 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8Are we comfortable in sharing that we are Christians? Would we suffer for the Gospel, and sing praises to God while we are suffering? We are not called to share error, but truth, not as part of an agenda, but with pure motives. We are called to be straight forward and truthful. Have we been approved by God? What is our heart about, would it stand the test Paul and Silas faced? We do not speak to please...

Reading: Revelation 21:4Until it strikes home, we tend to ignore it and close an eye to it, but the world around us is riddled with sin and the suffering that sin unleashes on us all. Is there any hope? Are we destined to succumb to the presence of evil and pain in our world? Or does God actually have a plan for it all?

Reading: Romans 5:1-11Especially in times of uncertainty it is vital for us to know that God loves us and what that mean. But it is also vital for us to understand that we have been called to share something absolutely breathtaking and have been charged with the responsibility to express the love of God to everyone around us.

Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:1-9In the introduction of the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians we can find hidden gems that are particular important to all of us. From how we should approach a problem that needs to be corrected to how we are called to use the gifts that the Lord has bestowed upon us, this is a message that should not be missed, as it sets the pace for the whole letter and makes an important difference in the way we...

Reading: Romans 8:12-25We know we are justified and stand in God's grace. Yet, we often see ourselves being influenced by this world. If we think we have an obligation to the flesh, we are like an elephant thinking he's a dog. But how do we understand our struggle within? Are good and evil really battling inside us? Are they two equal powers at war against each other? The answer is a resounding no, but find out why....

Reading: Romans 7:14-25

We are all in a lifelong journey to actually become who we are already declared to be in Christ. We are not sanctified by our own efforts, but rather in Christ by the work of the Holy Spirit. That work is accomplished at God's own pace, not our own. Find out how this transformation occurs and what our role in it is.

Reading: James 5:7-11We all experience trials and difficulties in life. But have you ever noticed that the advent of Jesus was and will be in times of crisis? Can that be the same for us today? And if so, what difference does that make, especially when we hurt? Can we really rejoice in our trials?

Reading: Luke 1:46-55There is so much we can learn from a young woman, Mary, and how she responded to God. We learn about the amazing privilege we have to be part of His plan and His work. We learn about the power of humility and of God's love expressed through us. We learn about the significance of little moments and of the choices we make on a daily basis. But we also learn about God's amazing grace and how committed He i...

Reading: Job 1; Jeremiah 32:27

Many are the ways in which we are exposed to pain and trials in life: a serious illness that shatters a family’s hopes, financial reversals that take away a family’s security, a problem son or daughter who brings sadness and disgrace. All around us we find hearts aching, in need of comfort and understanding. But why does this happen? Why would God allow all this? Is it really fair?

Reading: Romans 1:1-7

Do we really understand the meaning of the incarnation? It affects the way we look at the gospel, at the mission the Lord has called us to be part of, and even our very lives. It gives meaning to our humanity, to our very existence, and a purpose we can all look forward to. It reveals the nature of our communion with God, and the amazing hope we have been given in Christ.

John 14:15-21

Jesus clearly stated that if we love Him we keep His commandments. Is this a legalistic statement, implying that we must first keep His commandments in order to demonstrate our love for the Lord? The issue at hand is not merely academical but profoundly practical and important. A correct understanding of this key statement guides us to the depth of God's love, and how His love is at work in us.

Loneliness is a very difficult aspect of human suffering, and makes coping with the challenges and pain of life all the more difficult. Yet, even loneliness has solutions. Jesus Christ, who enjoyed perfect fellowship and companionship for all eternity, came to this world in a lonely night and died a lonely death to redeem us and give us freedom even from loneliness.

Reading: 1 Peter 1:17-23  All too many people today feel that their life is futile and meaningless. How or where can we find meaning? Why do we have so much conflict, and so many broken relationships? The answers are available, and were provided through the apostle Peter. It is a matter of the heart, a matter we cannot afford to ignore.

Reading: Acts 11:1-18

More than just an historical event, Peter's meeting with Cornelius marked a turning point in the life of the early church, and carries many teachings even for us today. It speaks to prejudice, to gossip, to conflict, and calls us to live the amazing renewal that the Lord has freely offered to us. It calls us to be true Christians at the core, rather than just playing the role. It is a vital message for all ...

Reading: John 13:31-35 Is the love we so often talk about nothing more than syrupy sentimentalism? Or is there much more to it? What does it really mean to be disciples of Jesus Christ? What really is that love He commanded us to express? Where does it come from? And what does it have to do with our daily living?
