Christ is our Hope!

Christ is our Hope!

On this Easter Sunday the one word that fills my heart and that of many Christians around the world is “hope”. Christ is our eternal hope. He rose on a day like today from the dead forever overcoming death and giving us the same ability when we came to believe in him. Romans 8:22-25 NIV […]

Faith, a Path, and a Choice Part 2

In our culture, so many feel good philosophies bombard us every day, through television, social media, print media, etc.. And although it’s intentions to encourage us and help us become resilient are noble, in the long run they fall short and are fleeting. The word of God is forever, it has been around forever (John 1:1). If you try to wrap your mind around it you can keep going in circles. However, God gives us knowledge, wisdom, and discernment and teaches us how to understand and live according to his word. Through His word we come to know him whether we hear it in a church or through a friend, it breaks the chains of our limited minds and expands our understanding to a new spiritual level to be in union with him. (2 Corinthians 3:14)

Our testimonies are a witness of God’s word and work, his work to deliver us and bring us into reconciliation with him through his only Son Jesus Christ. It is not a replacement or addition to God’s word but a fulfillment of his everlasting promises to those who believe. As such, our testimonies have power and authority. The power to heal and the power to share God’s love with others.

Today I share a video from Inspire Christian Books in which a young man Troy Black shares these exact insights.

Watch, enjoy, and be blessed!
