Paradoxical Kingdom – Rejection & Community

Having a relationship with Jesus isn’t easy. It comes with a big sign that reads, “Get ready for rejection!” Jesus clearly told His disciples in Luke 10:16, “Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever rejects you rejects me. And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.”

The Key, The Door, & The Room

Maria looked up at the three large crosses hanging in the front of the sanctuary. She knew that two of them represented thieves and murderers. She remembered her mother telling her that the middle one represented her sin and the death of a God man that erased them all for her. But why a cross? She found herself deeply concentrated on the middle one, almost like nothing else was going on around her. “Why the cross?” She thought to herself again.

Paradoxical Kingdom – Humility & Exaltation

It’s easy to get caught up in the numbers (a lot or even the lack of), and wanting success. It is good to be diligent and want to see your business, ministry, and so on grow. The true measure of success isn’t in the results of whether it does or not – it’s your heart in the process.

Paradoxical Kingdom – Suffering and Comfort

Many Christians have heard the reference of God’s kingdom being an “Upside Down Kingdom.” Things the Lord does can seem backwards or contradictory to how it should work in our minds. We can’t fathom how suffering is good for us or why God calls us to be humble when it hurts.

The Power of a Good Story

Your story of God’s work will inspire someone else to hear from Him in her own life, and be courageous to follow what He’s leading her to do. It can help save lives, bring people out of sin, and encourage others to keep fighting this good fight.

Why are Testimonies Important?

Which passages of Scripture do you remember most? The stories like David and Goliath, Noah, and Moses parting the Red Sea? Or are you more of a fact-finding person, remembering the details of what every elder, husband, woman, child, and slave were commanded to do?

A Transcending Love

God’s love doesn’t begin at your conception and end at your last breath. It transcends time and boundaries. God’s faithful love for you started when He first thought of and penned your life in His grand universal plans before the world began, and it continues for the rest of eternity.
