You’re Good Enough

You’ve taken the steps to be a Christian (click here for last week’s article on the journey from spiritual death to eternal life), but you worry you’re missing something.

His Plan for you Can’t “Slip Away”

The words of Jeremiah 29:11 are so familiar that you might be tempted to rush past the significance of them: God knows the plans He has for you. That means that God made certain plans for you. But it can be so tempting to take matters into your own hands, especially when His plans don’t […]

What good is having His “Shield” if you’re not behind it?

Psalm 91 is popular with those who are longing for God’s great protection because this beautiful Psalm provides comfort and promises to the reader in need.

Going Deeper with God: With the Son

You’ve heard the story a thousand times: Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah, who died and rose to save you.

Ways to Go Deeper: With the Father

Having a basic faith works for a time, but it might not “cut it” in times of great temptation or deep suffering. One of the most loving gifts you could ever give yourself or your loved ones is to explore the idea of deepening your Christian faith. The Bible doesn’t give one formula for growing […]

What you need to know about that Christian College or University

Many higher learning institutions were founded on Christian principles and were often affiliated with churches. However, even if many of these schools still carry their historical names today, that doesn’t mean they have upheld their original approaches. If you determine that a Christian school is the best choice for you or the student in your life, it would […]

Are You Lopsided?

When it comes to human design, you know that you are more than just a body…you are more than the sum of your thoughts…and you are more than a mere emotional being. Yet, you have probably been influenced to relate with God in one of those areas more than in the others. For example, someone […]
