To Fail in Commitment

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3 Can I be honest with you? There are times when I say I’m doing something for the Lord, when I’m really not.

A Little Reminder

When you think about yourself, what do you think about? Is it the good and righteous things you are in Christ? Is it the things that other people see in you? Or is it the things you keep hidden?

Throwing Stones

The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now, what do you say?” They were using thisContinue reading “Throwing Stones”

Bear the Cross

Today would have been a somber day for Jesus’ disciples. Yesterday Jesus was crucified, and they were too distraught to remember that Jesus said on the third day he’ll rise again. I suppose that this is where we’re lucky. We know Jesus has risen from the dead. We know that we’ll be celebrating tomorrow. SoContinue reading “Bear the Cross”
