Speaking of Life 2037 | Rembrandt’s Question

In the face of danger, our biological response might be to automatically fight, flee, or freeze. When facing life’s many storms, we also have the option of responding in faith, turning toward Jesus. In him, we know we have a savior who can calm the storms. He is our source of strength in times of trouble.

Speaking of Life 2036 | Hand’s On Experience

The best way to learn is often hands-on, right? We learn best when we actively participate in the learning process. Jesus knew this about his disciples and invited them to participate in his miracles and ministry. God still works that way with us today. He is inviting you to participate in “hands-on” acts of blessing for others and transforming you too as part of the process.

Speaking of Life 2035 | Slow-Release Truth

Humans are wired for and shaped by stories. Through narratives, we share in other’s experiences helping us envision a future, problem-solving, and develop empathy. Jesus knew the power of stories and wove them into his teaching as parables. However, the greatest love story is his very life, entering our world to rescue and redeem us all. Through Jesus’ heroic sacrifice you are a part of an epic story and essential part of his kingdom!

Speaking of Life 2033 | Come Drink

Water is critical for our bodies. It flushes out impurities, boosts energy, and is essential to digestion. Just like our water refreshes our physical bodies, the scripture reveals that time in God’s presence is lifegiving, refreshing our souls.

Speaking of Life 2032 | Believer’s Paresthesia

Do you often struggle with the same temptations? It can easily become discouraging. The apostle Paul would encourage you not to turn on yourself but to turn to the Lord. In his loving presence, we are transformed more and more into the image of who He intended us to be.

Speaking of Life 2031 | I’m Ready, My Lord

The phrase Hineni means, “here I am”. In the Bible, Hineni is most frequently used in response, when God personally calls on an individual to something difficult or important. How do we respond when God calls on us? May we respond with trust and reply, Hineni.

Speaking of Life 2030 | God with Us in Suffering

Suffering is a part of being human. We find comfort knowing that from the trivial discomfort to the trials of this life, we never suffer alone. In Jesus, we have a savior, who enters into our pain and comforts us with his presence.

Speaking of Life 2029 | The Roots of Promise

Biblical history is not an abstract group of timeless ideas, but a story carved out in a very human world. The story of Jesus entering our world to rescue and redeem humanity. How are we joining our story with the larger story? Are our lives a reflection of his love for all humanity and the entire world?

Speaking of Life 2028 | Making Something Out of Nothing

Out of dust and breath, God formed humans in his own image. When we try to earn our value from being successful, popular, or important, we will lose the incredible significance of what it means to be human. There’s no greater foundation than rooting our identity in the truth that we are beloved, image bearers of the Triune God – who specializes in making something out of nothing.
