Acting as Good Samaritans in our Post-Election Country

Cultivating our Hearts
October 16, 2016
Jesus says, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me.” (Rev 3:20) Our Lord Jesus passionately longs to enter the heart and life of each and every person in the world, and to change their lives for the better, yet He loves us so much that He respects our freedom to ignore His love and to close our hearts to His Spirit!

Whenever we pray to God and turn to Christ for something – whether healing, or help in a tough situation, or a way to resolve a problem, or for wisdom and discernment in our life – whenever we turn to God for help we have to be prepared to change our lives. Our prayer shouldn’t be to simply get a free handout. Our prayer should put us in communion with God and help us better understand His will for us in our lives Read more »

Life Over Death
May 01, 2016
Christ’s resurrection is all about life over death, about light over darkness, about goodness over evil, about joy over sorrow, about new beginnings over dead ends.

He confronted each form of evil by not giving in to it; he didn’t allow the evil to lead Him to respond in an evil way. Instead, he responded to every form of evil with divine love. Read more »
