Bridging the racial divide

It seems today races of people are more divided than ever. But is that a façade? Do some instances of racism mean racism exists in every heart? I believe racism is bigger than a problem between people – it’s a spiritual issue at the core.

The promise of rest remains

“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it…” (Hebrews 4:1-10).

Stagger not at the promises

(As it is written, “I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform. (Romans 4:17-21 KJV)

It’s the small things

Have you ever found yourself so busy or consumed by stuff you didn’t find much joy in the whole day? In this topsy turvy world we can rush right past the blessings and joy right in front of us overtaken by endless checklists and constant distractions.

All hands on

Jesus was and still is very hands on working with people on this journey called life. (Hebrews 4:14-16). All throughout the Bible we can see this displayed because of the great love that God has for us.
