He Knows My Name (John 20:15-16)

“‘Woman,’ he said, ‘why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?’ Thinking he was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Mary.’ She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, ‘Rabboni!’ (which means Teacher). (John 20:15-16)

I was 24 years old when I believed in Jesus as my Lord and Savior. When I share my testimony with people, I always mention that there was a church service I went to in which with absolute 100% certainty, I knew that God was speaking directly to me. It was the moment I recognized that He knew my name. (more…)

Take A Stand (John 19:8-9)

“When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, and he went back inside the palace.” (John 19:8-9a)

This week at my daughter’s school, the 5th grade students were given a presentation assignment. The topic was, “Who is the greatest person to you?”

As my daughter recapped what happened when they were given the task to complete, I realized she had faced a significant decision point that day. (more…)

Cursed and Attacked (Psalm 109:27-28)

“Let them know that it is your hand, that you, Lord, have done it. While they curse, may you bless; may those who attack me be put to shame, but may your servant rejoice.” (Psa. 109:27-28)

Once in while, we’re going to run into people that oppose us. And when we openly share our faith, we will ABSOLUTELY run into people who oppose God and our Christian views. If you haven’t run into that yet, then you may not be sharing your faith enough… jus’ sayin! 😉 #foodforthought (more…)

Tell Your Story (Psalm 107:2-3)

“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those He redeemed from the hand of the foe, those He gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.” (Psa. 107:2-3)

As Christians, telling our story is a powerful tool that the Lord has given us to encourage, edify, and evangelize. When we share with others what God has done in our lives, we bear witness to His goodness and faithfulness. (more…)
