Living as a Child of God and Joint-Heir with Christ

This post is Chapter 4 from my book Fullness of Joy that Only Comes with Salvation. It’s the first book in a series meant to help the Church to carry the baton passed on to us by Jesus and run the race His apostles did. This book is about what it really means to be saved, and how there is great joy found in living as a child of God!

Risen Indeed

He is Risen Indeed, and So Are You

Since I came to the Lord as a young adult, I didn’t grow up knowing all the peculiarities of the church. The first Easter I heard someone expectantly greet me with a peppy, “He is risen!” An awkward silence fell as I tried to respond. My gracious friend whispered the code, “You’re supposed to say,…

Why Did Jesus Die

Why Did Jesus Die?

In a couple weeks, Christians will be celebrating Good Friday and Easter Sunday. These days represent when Jesus went to the cross and was raised three days later. But why did Jesus die?

How Sin Affects Hearing God

How Sin Affects Hearing God

Do you know how sin affects hearing God? A part of me wants to tell you that it will keep you from hearing Him. But that comes from my desire to protect you from the impact transgressions have on your life. Not to mention the religious side of me yells down from my high place,…

Knowing God

As long as I can remember I had thoughts about God. It seems like a long time ago in a galaxy far far away (3 years old in Willis, TX) I was tucked into bed, and led to pray, “Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. And if I…

Grace through Faith

God’s grace and our faith are two recurring elements throughout Scripture. In fact, we often don’t recognize how regularly we deal in grace and faith on a daily basis. Everything that God created is a gift and every breath that we have is a tangible grace given to us. And we live moment by moment…

Kingdom of Heaven

The Kingdom of Heaven is Closer than You Think
