Peter was a bold example of how anyone can live boldly for God if they rely on the power of prayer and the Holy Spirit. He is a highly relatable figure, coming from a fisherman lifestyle into a powerhouse giant of the faith. Even though he denied Jesus as the most pivotal moment of Jesus' life, he turned his life around and led many people into a relationship with Jesus. In the same way, we should not allow our past failures to keep us from boldly living for Jesus.
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is an important event in history. The manner in which he died was intended to be an act of atonement for sins, but it also serves as a demonstration of God's love for us. His sacrifice reminds us that we are called to follow his example and give ourselves up for others.
The Bible says that all sin is a violation of God's law. It's an offense against God and it causes us to lose relationship with Him. But the good news is that Christ rescues us from our sins and offers us life in His kingdom.
The story of Jesus' first miracle is found in the gospel of John, chapter 2. The wedding scene is the first time that we hear about Jesus changing water into wine during his ministry (John 2:1-11). The Greek word translated as "belief" in the New Testament comes from two words that mean "to be persuaded." This miracle has far-reaching implications for what it means to believe in Jesus.
Reading scripture is the single greatest privilege of any one who follows the man who hung between two criminals. When going through the Bible, what is the longest chapter? Why is it so long? These are the questions for today's post.
My oldest son has just now entered High school and recently he had a discussion centered around cussing. For him, as he has gotten older, there has been months (if not years) where he wouldn’t hear a cuss word. Now, the opposite seems true. He cannot go a day without hearing one. For this reason I sought to look for Biblical answers to a very common question, and today I want to share that knowledge.
A believer’s true identity is not based on the things that he does, but on the fact that he has been hidden with Christ in God. Today, we unpack what this looks like and how we can daily hide ourselves in the man who hung between two criminals.
What if a believer's hunger and thirst for God's righteousness was so strong that it compelled them to live it out in every area of their life? The answer to this question is not only possible, but today’s post will show you how to get there.
