Don’t Get Cocky

Pride is a condition of the human heart that the church has always cautioned Christians to beware. Boasting is a symptom of that pride. If we are going to be God’s people then we must always beware this vice which lays close at hand. Strangely enough the solution isn’t to focus on humility.

It Happens So Quick, You’ve Got to Be Ready

We feel that tug that whispers, turn to Jesus, and we say, yes, but not yet. We wait. We wait because we just aren’t sure. Maybe not sure about Jesus, maybe not sure about what we would need to give up. At some level we think it will all turn out right, after all I’m young and have lots of time. But maybe, time is running out.

Give It Away, Not Hold On To It

The temptation is always to solidify. To protect. To establish. But it’s not ours, it never was. We must let go of what we have to be the people of God and to allow that letting go redefine us.

How Far Should We Go With This?

Jesus has called us to be generous with each other, positively confronting each other’s sins so no one gets lost. It was also a call for us to exercise forgiveness with each other and leads to a natural question of how far do we go with this forgiveness? The answer is rooted in the unreasonable grace of God.
