Save Me from Myself (John 3:16-18)

“For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.¬†Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:16-18)

Because we are all sinners and fall short of God’s glory (Rom. 3:23), we are condemned to eternal punishment and separation from God from the start. While this sounds like a really unfair and cruel way for God to position us within this world, the fact of the matter is that our own sin got us there… but He has given us a way out. (more…)

Be A Blessing (Proverbs 3:3, 27)

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” (Prov. 3:3)

“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.” (Prov. 3:27)

Before we start each day, I pray with the kids and ask God that He would help us to be a blessing to others that day; that we would be kind, gentle, generous, and loving, and that we would shine the light of Jesus wherever we go. I want to instill in them the focus on loving others before ourselves. (more…)
