Let Not Your Hearts Be Troubled

Let not your hearts be troubled. Jesus tells his disciples this as he is preparing for his painful, ignominious death. He has such a short time to tell them everything they will need to know when he is gone. There is still so much to teach them! How could he be so...

What Does Lent Have For You?

This Lenten season has given me some time to reflect. In years past, I would sometimes give up something that I loved (that is, food) during Lent, but it was more a quasi religious self-improvement program than anything to do with the sacrifice of our Lord. Nowadays I...

Set Your Eyes On Jesus

Blessing Others This Holiday Season

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not very good at being relational with my neighbors. With four homeschooled kids, a dog, a hard-working husband, and a handful of active hobbies, it’s easy to make excuses for how busy I am. But the Bible is clear: “A new...

Through Christ, We Can All Be Justified

After Jesus’ perfectly beautiful encounter with the woman in John 8, he tells her, “Go, and from now on sin no more.” So she starts going to church, tithes ten percent, volunteers at the animal shelter, always drives five miles under the speed limit, and lives a...
