Peace that Surpasses All Understanding

Peace that Surpasses All Understanding

As a fruit of the Spirit, peace is something that believers who are walking by the Spirit should exhibit. This peace must be obtained by power from above, given from God through Jesus on the cross and poured out by the Holy Spirit. We receive this peace from God through prayer. Additionally, believers need to […]

The Armor of God

The Armor of God

Christians struggle against a powerful enemy who wants to shipwreck their faith and turn them into rebels against God. The only defense is the armor which God himself wore when he struck the decisive blow of victory over the enemy. Clothed in this armor, Christians are strengthened with God’s mighty power and will persevere in […]

Walk Worthy

Walk Worthy

Once we become aware of the privileges of belonging to Christ, we are encouraged to live in light of that privilege. This requires us to live a selfless life, surrendering ourselves entirely to the Lord and seeking to live in unity with other believers.

The Holy Household of God

The Holy Household of God

As believers in Jesus we have a new privileged status as members of the holy family. We are built upon a strong foundation which cannot crumble and which holds us all together. We are growing into a holy temple, a place for God to dwell, and from which his glory is to be proclaimed to […]

Peace to the Far and Near

Peace to the Far and Near

It is good for Christians to consider the hopelessness of life without God. Only then will we be able to recognize the greatness of what Christ accomplished for us on the cross. Not only did he reconcile us to God, but he also reconciled us to one another. And the peace he has now brought […]

Safe and Surrounded

Safe and Surrounded

Christians enter into the worship of God aware of the dangers of the world in which they sojourn. Believers face numerous threats to their faith—threats from without and from within which are real and dangerous.

Why We Worship

Why We Worship

God’s people are supposed to look forward to worshiping him together. Although God commands his people to worship him, he also gives them all the reason they need to worship him with joy. And when God’s people find delight in worshiping God, the world is drawn into this worship as well, so that everyone is […]

Longing for Home

Longing for Home

For the Christian, the world is not our home so we can never become comfortable with life here. We live East of Eden, in a place that cannot achieve peace but is quick to go to war. The Christian sojourner is a frequent target. But salvation will come in the truth of God that, like […]

Peace in a Troubled World

Peace in a Troubled World

Jesus’s final words to his disciples before his crucifixion were aimed at preserving their faith in the face of the coming crisis. If his disciples could comprehend where the cross was taking him, the moment of their greatest sorrow would lead them into a reality of far greater joy. Even if they stumble in their […]

Helped by the Holy Spirit

Helped by the Holy Spirit

While Jesus was living on earth, he was the embodiment of Immanuel—God with us. But he told his disciples to rejoice that he was returning to the Father because he would give to his followers “another Helper” to be with them forever. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered toward loving obedience […]
