An Acceptable Sacrifice

An Acceptable Sacrifice

Of all the New Testament churches, the church in Philippi stands alone in the area of stewardship. According to Paul, their giving hearts were a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. As a result, God promised to supply all their needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

New Year’s Resolutions and the Christian Life

New Year’s Resolutions and the Christian Life

At the end of each year many of us write out a list of New Year’s resolutions we want to practice in the coming year. What do our New Year’s resolutions reveal about us? What do these changes have to do with a Christian who has been saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ? How can we use our New Year’s resolutions as a means to worship Christ?

Christmas Love

Christmas Love

Christmas is an intriguing time of the year where we work really hard to make love work. We want life to feel different and we don’t want it to feel like the rest of the year. So we max out credit cards; we spend weeks planning and cooking and eating; we pretend to like people we can’t stand with the dream that somehow this thing we call love will really manifest during this Christmas season.

Peace That Endures

Peace That Endures

He says, the peace I offer you isn’t what the world can give you. The only kind of peace the world can give us is the peace of good circumstances. That’s why the whole world is frantic and worships the gods of good circumstances. The peace that Jesus wants to give you is an anchor in spite of bad circumstances. That is why Jesus can say in John 16:33, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart in that tribulation; I have overcome the world.”
