Union with Christ and Union with Others (With Joy #6)

The peace of God doesn’t just extend to our relationship with Him, it spreads and extends to those around us as well. Our union with Christ creates the opportunity for deep relationships of peace, harmony, and sacrificial love, and when it doesn't, it offers us a way forward.

Racing Towards Joy (With Joy #5)

Our lives are spent chasing a lot of different things. But what is the one thing that matters? Is it security? Influence? Self-realization? Paul challenges all of these and places racing towards experiencing our union with Christ at the top of what the Christian’s life should ultimately be.

Practicing Dependence

Practicing Dependence

Suffering strikes all of us at different times and in different ways, but we all suffer. However God has promised that He will meet us in our suffering and encourage us. At the same time as His people He calls us all to enter into and walk with others as they suffer. Entering into this suffering means we must wholly depend on God. But what does that look like in our real day to day life?

God's No Scarecrow (Jeremiah #4)

When we reduce God to a scarecrow—that doesn’t move and doesn’t talk but merely scares us into obedience—we lose the power and joy that only come from knowing Him. It’s in knowing God that we find and experience the power that will eventually make our world right. And it’s in knowing God that our hearts can find their deepest joy.

What's Keeping You from Jesus?

We can find joy in God. Not in circumstances. In God Himself. This is different from pretending we’re ok. It’s different from passively waiting until life goes our way. It’s different from seizing the moment and hustling until it’s better. We can have contact with the God who made us, and that contact itself will result in joy. So what’s stopping us?

I Want to be More

I don’t just want to do great things. I want to be great. I want to love with abandon, to flourish in all circumstances, to have wisdom for the ages, to be a place of refuge for the weary around me. I want to be so much more than I am—can I ever get there? Yes. And here’s how.
